In the beginning of July, www.eyeslipsface.com had a site wide sale for 60% off! As soon as I heard about this I jumped online and placed a fairly large haul for various products I've been meaning to try. In general, ELF Cosmetics are only a few dollars, on average, each and are very affordable. However, I find items are a hit or a miss. After playing around with several of the items, here are my initial impressions on what I deem HITS and what are MISSES.
Prices included are ELF's regular prices in US dollars before the 60% discount.
Angled Eyeliner Brush $3.00
Kabuki Body Brush $8.00
Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 in "Beige" $3.00
Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in "Black", "Coffee", "Midnight", "Teal" $1.00

Corrective Concealer $3.00
Complete Coverage Concealer in "Medium" $3.00
All Over Cover Stick in "Honey", "Toffee" $1.00

Mineral Infused Face Primer $6.00
Therapeutic Conditioning Lip Balm in "Strawberry Creme" $1.00
Radiance Enhancer in "Sunrise" $3.00
Zit Zapper $1.00
Complete Coverage Concealer in "Medium"
Flawless Finish Foundation in "Caramel"
Tinted Moisturizer in "Beige"
Therapeutic Lip Condition Balm in "Strawberry Creme"
Waterproof Eyeliner Pens
Teal, Coffee, Midnight and Black
The Waterproof Eyeliner Pens were complete garbage. I do not know how these are claimed to be waterproof when they come off almost instantly in the water and smudge on contact. Not even worth $1.00 or the .40 cents I paid in my honest opinion. If you look at the swatch of "Coffee" it is all dried out, and the black was not nearly dark enough.
I didn't include pictures and swatches of everything I hauled because I never actually intended on making a blog post about this, but figured some of you may be interested in my initial impressions of the products. As I said previously, I have yet to try everything, but some product HITS include: Flawless Finish Foundation, Angled Eyeliner Brush, Hypershine Gloss, Complete Coverage Concealer, Dramatic Lashes, Mineral Infused Face Primer, and Therapeutic Conditioning Lip Balm. MISSES include: Waterproof Eyeliner Pens
I basically got all of this for around $30. Pretty good bargain in my eyes even with some garbage products. I made sure to stock up on the ELF Dramatic Lashes in Black because they are good for everyday use without breaking the bank. I plan on posting a FOTD tomorrow of an entire face created with using only ELF cosmetics! Can't wait for you guys to see how it turned out...I'm really liking the Flawless Finish Foundation as a cheaper alternative to some of my higher end foundations!
