E.L.F. Cosmetics : First impression

A few months back, I made some crazy splurge at E.L.F. Cosmetics and in my defense it was all inoffensive purchases! I’ve seen a lot of beauty bloggers raving about E.L.F. Cosmetics. As E.L.F. was having a Black Friday sales, I decided to give it a whirl and purchase a bunch of cosmetics. Below is a list of products I bought along with a brief review of each.

Let’s get started me hearties!

Product #1 – E.L.F Contour Palette

After I tried the FLORMAR Trio contour palette (see link –http://littleadult.blog/flormar-free-spirit-product-review/), I decided that contouring is now an inevitable step in my makeup.  So, I wanted to try another contour palette and went for this E.L.F one. Honestly, I was blown away by it on the very first try itself! This palette is so so pigmented and blends easily, and really compliments your look when applied.

Product #2 – E.L.F Blush Palette

I love a good rosy cheeks which gives you a natural look. And as a matter of fact, I couldn’t be bothered by the amount of blushers I own. (lol). This E.L.F blush palette has 4 different pink shades – 3 mattes and 1 shimmery color (which fill me with a sense of awe). These blushers last through all the heat and sweat that you can imagine. Once applied, it makes your face all warm and fresh without being too overboard.

Product #3 – E.L.F High Definition Powder

The reason I bought this HD powder was that I’ve always wanted to try a yellow colored powder. I was having a second thought about this one due to its price range, but to be fair it was to no avail. This powder comes with a little puff. This E.L.F HD powder is ideal for baking. It helps keep the oil on my face at bay for a good amount of time. I only use this on the areas that I applied concealer and I’m good to go about my day.

Product #4 – E.L.F Baked Highlighter

A real surprise was this highlighter! Pocket size, but shines like a diamond. This highlighter looks much of a champagne color but has a silvery finish. Even though it is very pigmented in only one swipe , it gives a subtle bling bling effect to your face. It is also build-able if well manipulated and shines brighter than your enemy’s future!(lol). If you want a more blinding effect, the trick with this little buddy is to spray a tiny amount of fixing-spray on your highlighter brush before applying it and you’re good to bling!

Product #5 – E.L.F Lip lacquer

Not a great fan of tinted lip gloss, BUT this one right here, made me change my mind!! The texture and formula are LITE! Light-weight and hydrating and also long lasting, this lip lacquer provides your lips with the same feeling as wearing a hydrating lipstick. Totes recommend this!

Product #6 – E.L.F Poreless face primer

If you have combination to oily skin like me, you will struggle with large pores. It can give you the urrgh feeling when you look at yourself in the mirror! I always wanted to try a poreless primer, and this one intrigued me quite much. Creamy, smooth and non-greasy, this primer helps to get rid of your nasty big pores. Your face is matte for a good amount of time. Bye, Bye horrible big pores!

Of course, I saved the best for last; the Star of the show! This cute little tube is an absolute game changer! It is the only reason why I decided to get into this whole makeup splurge in the first place. This adjuster helps to get rid of all ashy/grey-ish foundation.
