Fall Makeup Trends From e.l.f.

screen-capture-1e.l.f. is one of those makeup lines that I’ve been meaning to try, but for one reason or another have not gotten around to trying until now! The deal with e.l.f. (stand for eyes lips face) is that they carry pretty much everything makeup and beauty product you can imagine–from makeup brushes and tool to bath products and nail polishes to mineral makeup and much more. But it’s all super low priced–I’m talking makeup brushes and mascara for $1.00 and mineral eye shadows, primers and eyeliners for $3.00! I recently got the chance to test out the newest items for fall from e.l.f. that can create a bright & bold looks, as well as give you a flawless complexion…

-2I tested out the Studio Conditioning Lip Balm and it was my favorite of the e.l.f. products I tried, but it’s not online (yet?) It goes on soft and has a nice sweet scent. The color is super sheer and natural and was moisturizing. It includes Vitamins A & E, as well as SPF 15. It comes in six natural shades. I tested it in a warm brown shade that freaked me out in the pot, but goes on a nice berry brown. Perfect for fall! Price: $3.00

I tested the Shimmer Pencil in Iconic Ivory, which is super pretty as a highlighter around your eyes. I use it at the inner corners, and it helps to make my eyes look more bright and awake. It contains flecks of metallic sparkle, but goes on smooth with no tugging. It also comes with a handy sharpener on the cap. Shimmer Pencil comes in six other colors and since I was really impressed with the quality of this pencil for the price, I’d love to try them all.¬† Price: $1.00

-1 I’m obsessed with finding the perfect concealer, both for under eyes and spot treating the rest of the face. According to e.l.f., Studio Complete Coverage Concealer is highly pigmented, professionally formulated, and offers ultimate coverage to disguise a range of flaws. However, I found the colors weirdly off and the texture super dry. This product was a no-go for me! It’s available in Light, Medium and Dark palettes. Price: $3.00

screen-captureI didn’t test the e.l.f. makeup brushes, but I have heard really good things about them, especially about the Studio Powder Brush, which is suppose to be very similar to MAC’s #187, except MAC’s brush is $42.00 and e.l.f.’s brush is only $3.00! I’ve also heard that e.l.f.’s Eyeshadow Brush and Small Angled Brush are suppose to be very good, too.

You can purchase e.l.f. online or go to the store locator to find a retailer near you. Editorial samples were provided by the company so I could review these products. Please see my About page for further information on Disclosure policies.
