First Impressions of Elf Products

January 24, 2018 3 Comments

It wasn’t long ago that I took a stroll through the Superdrug beauty aisles and decided I wanted (needed) to explore some e.l.f products. e.l.f is a totally new brand for me but I’ve always heard about them and that was a good enough reason for me.

I figured I’d start with the basics like a foundation, primer and setting powder. A good introduction to the brand and all were affordable.

*e.l.f Mineral Face Primer
Hands down my favourite of the three products and one I would happily repurchase without any hesitation. The overall consistency is silky and light making for an extremely comfortable base. Makeup easily lasts all day and maintains a smooth and pore-free finish. The ideal primer for any beauty queen.

*e.l.f Flawless Finish Foundation
As foundations go, this unfortunately is not one of my favourites (not even in my top 5). The pump is a much appreciated element but it sadly doesn’t make the application process anymore enjoyable or any easier. The formula is difficult to blend compared to other High Street foundations and I found it a real task trying to build to a medium coverage although it’s not totally impossible.

This is definitely A foundation for minimal and natural looks as redness and blemishes will certainly need some extra attention from a good concealer when trying to disguise them. I’m sadly not a fan.

*e.l.f High Definition Powder
Thankfully this powder managed to regain some confidence in the e.l.f brand for me. This loose setting powder provides a soft finish with it’s clear and delicate formula yet still manages to securely lock everything into place for all day wear. This helps achieve a radiant glow whilst still looking natural. It’s an ideal powder in every sense.

Have you tried e.l.f yet? What should I try next?

    I had to read this because I used to buy stuff from e.l.f. years ago when they were online only, but I wanted to see how the stuff had changed since then.

    Really good review post, thanks for sharing your thoughts!

    Hey there. Try the ELF Lip Exfoliator. I really liked it. And even the makeup brushes are really good for the price. I use the elf hydrating primer and I’m in love with it. Do Let me know if you try these out ❤️
