My ALL ELF Face of the Day!

Hey everyone! Happy first day of Spring! Hope the weather is nice where you are. Today I was getting ready, and I put on a couple of face products, and they both happened to be from ELF. Once I realized that, I thought- I should use ONLY ELF products on my face today! There are a few reasons why... I mean, I have a lot of ELF makeup, and the brand has really expanded over time to offer so many different products. The fact that it's available at Target has caused me to pick up lots of different items to try! I don't think everything in the brand is perfect (I've yet to find a brand where I love absolutely EVERYTHING), but to those who think makeup has to be high-end in order for it to look good... I must say, you can save a lot of money and still look great wearing ELF stuff! :) Keep in mind, I'm currently reviewing some of the products I used today, so this is not necessarily one big list of recommendations. I've marked products that I plan to review as "under review". Also- this blog is not sponsored by ELF... I purchased everything myself. ELF products are available at Target or eyeslipsface.com.

Face Products...
left to right: ELF Studio Complete Coverage Concealer in light, ELF Makeup Mist & Set, ELF Studio Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in Nude, ELF Translucent Mattifying Powder, ELF High Definition Powder
  • I first smoothed on my Tinted Moisturizer all over my face (under review)
  • Using a couple of different shades, I used the concealer on my under-eye area (under review)
  • I lightly dusted the Translucent Mattifying powder under my eyes to set my concealer, and also around my T-Zone
  • At the very end of my makeup routine, I used the HD powder and then the Mist & Set (under review).

More face products (color)clockwise from left: ELF Cream Blush in Seductress, ELF Studio Warm Bronzer, ELF Healthy Glow Bronzer in Warm Tan, ELF Studio Blush in Blushing Rose

  • I swirled a large powder brush in the warm bronzer to combine all the shades and dusted that all over my face.
  • With my fingers, I blended the cream blush into the apples of my cheeks (under review).
  • To enhance the staying power, I dusted a coordinating powder blush on top of the cream blush.
  • The Healthy Glow bronzer has some shimmer- I often like to use this to warm up my neck/collarbone area.

Eyes & Lips

clockwise from top: ELF 32 Color Eyeshadow palette, ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer, ELF Moisture-Care Lip Color in Ruby Slipper, ELF Cream Liner in Midnight

  • I smoothed the mineral eyeshadow primer all over my lids
  • From the eyeshadow palette, I used a light pink on the inner part of my lids and under my brow. I used a deeper rosy pink on the outer part of the lid, and blended it up into the crease, along with just a hint of purple.
  • I used the navy blue cream liner (under review) on my upper lashline, and the outer part of my lower lashline. I lightly applied some navy shadow over the top.
  • The one ELF product I don't have right now is MASCARA! :( So I had to use another brand for that.
  • On my lips, I used the rosy colored Moisture-Care lip color... lightly blotting the shimmery light pink shadow on top for some added glow.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! Again, any product that says "under review" is something I'm currently testing, and plan to reviw it soon! :) Many of the other products have already been featured in reviews here and there! Have a great day!

  5. You're awesome! I love E.L.F products and have a lot of the studio and mineral line stuff. I've tried their mascaras several times and they've always been DRY! One of the only things I will not buy from them again. What did you think of their mist & set? I have it, but haven't tried it yet. I love my MAC fix plus. But I will get around to trying theirs. LOVE their gel liner, primer, blush, bronzer, HD powder and tinted moisturizer!

  9. I have (and LOVE) all of the products you used today! The tinted moisturizer is my favorite new item. Totally replaced Laura Mercier TM for me! I wear it in the color nude and it's amazing. Just recently got the Warm Tan bronzer and I'm really liking it as well. :)

    Have a great day!

  12. You look amazing! I love how you are doing an all "ELF" look, you should do that with other drugstore brands. That would be fanstastic. :)

  15. As a mom of a teenager I love ELF ! We just purchased tons of items during the 50% of the Studio Line sale. Great way for her to try out different things that don't break my bank.

  17. YES finally an all ELF face review!! I love ELF!! I am so getting all of this!

  18. I adore ELF, as a teenager these products are truly amazing and inexpensive. Which a low budget make up buyer wants! I know I do. One question, is the Eyeshadow paletter worth buying? I know it was 10 dollars, but I am thinking of buying it. What do you think?

  19. I have 4 of the cream liners and I looooooove them, very long lasting. :) I've also discovered that the studio cream shadow is perfect for use like a MAC paint pot to make eyeshadow stay perfect for hours!!! I use ELF eyeshadow primer, then cream shadow, then shadows of your choice on top, then the cream liner and it does not budge or crease for 10+ hours on me! Now if the rest of my face remained so nice I'd be set...still searching on that. lol

  20. I can't wait to see your review on the concealer. I bought a different e.l.f concealer and I wasn't too pleased with it, but my friend really likes the tinted moisturizer! I mentioned them both on my blog http://www.lovelipstickandlaughter.blogspot.com

  21. Emily I will say that I am okay with the ELF mascara, BUT, it doesnt last but a week! The waterproof is better BUT it flakes! So for a buck!!!!!!! Worth it!!!

  24. I use at least one ELF product every day. Love the concealer, the bronzer/blush duo, and I am obsessed with every single one of their lip products. I just ordered the Day to Night quad from the essentials line because you sounded so pleased with it.

  25. I bought the purple plum eyeliner yesterday. Very light when you first put it on. Definitely one to layer if you want it darker. :)

  31. Can't wait for the review. Im new to the ELF line and am slowly building my stock of their makeup. Was wondering if you could do a tutorial on this look and/or one on the cream shadows. I love the look of them but im really afraid to try cream.

  46. Hi Emily

    I love that you review elf, a lot of bloggers only prefer high end when so many people can't afford to be buying it all the time. Love your youtube videos keep up the good work!

  47. Hi Emily

    I love that you review e.l.f and not just the high end brands. e.l.f is great, some things can be hit and miss (like their nail polishes) but mostly great value for money. Love your youtube videos - keep up the good work.
