E.L.F Cosmetics Review

I’m sure most of you have heard of E.L.F cosmetics already, but for those of you who haven’t, keep reading!! You’ll love it!
E.L.F which stands for Eyes, Lips, Face was launched in new York in 2004 and was introduced to the UK in 2007. When you take a look at the website you won’t believe the prices. Everything in the regular range is £1.50......YES £1.50!! This ranges from eyeshadows, mascaras, lipgloss, bronzers, everything!! In the Studio line, everything bar the makeup kits are £3.50, the Mineral range is also £3.50. What a complete bargain eh??

You can also customise kits, you can get a compact with 4 spaces for £1.50 to fill with eyeshadow, lip colour, blusher and bronzer all £1.50
I have always been a fan of more premium brands when it comes to makeup and always believed you get what you pay for, so when I heard of this stuff I was sceptical. However reading up on other beauty blogs and reviews who raved about it, I thought I’ve gotta give it a go!

So I bought 4 products.......

Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Warm Tan - £1.50
I love this, it’s such a gorgeous colour for me. It does have quite a shimmer to it, it looks gorgeous on your cheeks and on the bridge of the nose but on the forehead which is suggested on the website, is a little much I think. It gives a lovely healthy glow to the skin! Love it!!

Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF15 in Goddess - £1.50
Although the colour isn’t quite what it looks on the site, it is still a beautiful one. It was probably a good thing really as I ordered it thinking it was pinky brown, but in reality it’s more of a peachy pink. I have so many pink glosses, so it’s a nice change. It’s quite a thick consistency, helping it to last one the lips. Another winner!!

Complete Coverage Concealer  in Medium - £3.50
This product is part of the Studio line, which is why is slightly more expensive. However, £3.50 is hardly expensive. Anyway, unfortunately I should have ordered the Light as the medium is way too dark for me, so I’ve not had the chance to try this one.  Apparently it’d cost more than the actual product in P+P to send it back and exchange! Bummer!!

Cream Eyeliner in Black - £3.50 (brush included)
I have never mastered the art of using liquid eyeliner but I love the look. So I thought I’d give this a go. The product itself is fantastic, it is so creamy. You lightly dab the brush in the tub and swipe across the base of your eyelashes. It is so pigmented and very black so you need the tiniest amount. I’m really impressed with this. However, I can do my right eye perfectly but I always manage to make my left wobbly! Ha, but that’s my problem, not the product!!

There are so many more bits I want so I’m going to be ordering soon!! The High Definition Powder is meant to be amazing and the Therapeutic Conditioning Lip Balm delicious!! I’m so addicted!

Also if you ‘Like’ their Facebook page there are often offers such as Free Delivery with a minimum spend of £10! I managed to get this offer when I ordered, and i still got the goodies 2 days later!!
You can only get this online, so make sure you check out


  1. I have the Corrective Concealer and do not like it at all. not good pigmentation and it is not creamy. I actually hit the pan when I tried to swatch it. Nothing I recommend. And I'm thinking the Complete Coverage Concealer is about the same, so I did not get it.
    And yeah sending something back is just a waste of money. Better just order a new one (IF you like it).

  2. Oh really, that is such a shame!! Maybe I won't order that then!! x x

  3. Loving the look of the cream eye liner, and the lipgloss is such a gorgeous colour! I have never used e.l.f either but like you have read lots about it and you've just made me reallllly want to try some too :) thanks for fab review xxx

  4. It is gorgeous stuff!! I defo want to order some more, I'm just waiting til they are offering free delivery on FB Lol!! x x x

  5. I really want to try some more ELF products :)


  6. Sounds good! You should get Aimee to help with the eye liner, she is a pro! x

  7. I ordered my first ELF products 19th June and have came through today! So happy with how quick they come through the post. And the products I ordered are great. Will defiantly be ordering from ELF again.
