ELF Reviews: Others

Normal range:

Eyeliners and Mascaras (All of them excluding the Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara
Rubbish! Smears, smudges, doesn't work, hurts your eyes, fades after a couple of hours. Basically just a waste of money.
Wet Gloss Lash & Brow Clear Mascara
Ok, but just as a brow tamer. I would suggest going to Daiso and getting the clear mascara. Works just as well as this for just RM5.
Liquid eyeshadow
Fades and the color isn't as vibrant as it seems. Please see swatches first before deciding.

Brightening eye colour, duo eyeshadow, duo eyeshadow cream
Everyone has a love/hate relationship with this. On one hand the colours are nice, good payoff, not chalky, cheap. However, they either fade quickly or easily creases, so you MUST use them on top of a primer (Must be to get more people to buy their Mineral Primer heh. But seriously, get it!)
Shimmering Facial Whip/All Over Color Stick
Basically the same thing in two different forms. Most people will like them, if the colour is right.

All are fine for $1, but for RM11.50... well I will suggest paying a little more for the Studio line. Face brushes are rubbish (very scratchy and sheds like a tree during autumn) but the eye brushes are ok, not as scratchy looking as the pictures.

Lip stuff
Personally don't quite like them as the sweet scent's quite strong and lingers, and the ones I've tried are fairly sticky.
Clarifying pressed powder
Loosely packed, turns orange on some. Other that that, it's not bad.

Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder
Best bronzer by ELF IMO, but it's fragile as it's very loosely packed and shatters easily.

Natural Radiance Blusher
Colour payoff is nice, and what you see is what you get, but the lasting power is very weak.

Tone correcting concealer/ All Over Cover Stick
Great stuff, if you can find the correct tone. Remember to think of undertones when deciding.

Tinted Moisturizer Spf 15
I love this little thing! Coverage is between sheer and moderate, just nice to even out your skintone. It comes in a small tube, but it seems to last me quite a while. I've read of cases where it bursts though, so be careful when traveling with it.

Custom Compact
Great compact, especially if you have loads of depotted MAC eyeshadows as they are the exact fit!
Custom Eyes/Lips/Face
Some are hits, some are misses. Check out swatches before deciding.
