Impressions of ELF's New Products/New Colors 2


e.l.f. Essential Beauty School Eyeshadow Pigment Collection

If you are already familiar with elf's pigments then you know they're pigmented and great to have in your make up collection plus, it's a great way to get some practice in using loose eye shadows because it can be a little tricky.  This set is great to have and the colors are a great combination because you can get several different looks.  The only negative thing I have to say is that if you already own the colors golden goddess, magical maroon, and naughty norie in the studio line eye shadow pigments, then you don't need this set because the colors are identical.  I love the set I just wish they would have came out with new colors rather then repeating the colors they already have because 9 times out 10 everybody has these colors.  I really hate when companies re-release a product that they have and just slap a new name on it.  If I base my rating just on the quality these pigments would get 5 stars but, since these colors are in the studio line pigments and most people have them I give it 3 stars.
    

 

e.l.f. Studio Makeup Lock & Seal

This product is elf's version of a mixing medium and we are aware of the different things you can do with a product like that.  Well, this is no different. You can use this with your eye shadows, loose pigments, eyeliner, & lipstick, you can use this lock & seal on just about any make up product and it really does work.  The only problem I had was using this on lipstick, it really didn't make it last longer than normal but, it did make the lipstick matte so, this is good if you want a matte lipstick and it's glossy.  I give this product 4 stars.

 

e.l.f. Studio Mascara Primer

I never used a mascara primer before until I tried this one from elf and I have to say that I like it.  Now I can't compare this to other brands but, from what it did for my lashes this is going to be a staple in my make up application.  This makes my lashes longer and more define and this product will probably help with clumping to.  I'm glad that elf came out wit a primer because I don't like to use high end mascaras and brow pencils since I go thought them so often I can't see myself spending that much money every month, especially since they're perfectly good drugstore brands that get the job done.  I give this product 5 stars.

 

e.l.f. Studio Wrinkle Refiner

I love this wrinkle refiner, in fact this is one of the best products that elf has came out with.  I don't have wrinkles but, I do have fine lines under my eyes and I have laugh/smile expressions around my mouth and this product really works.  I don't know if it reduces the appearance of lines/wrinkles over time from using it.  The best way I can describe this product is like a good primer not for allover the face but, just for the area with fine lines.  This can be a little sticky but, just let it dry before you apply your make up and a little does go a long way so be careful on the amount you use.  I defiantly give this product 5 stars. 

 

e.l.f. Essential Eyelid Primer

The new colors to the eye lid  primer are pretty decent, they do what a primer is suppose to do.  The colors does offer a little variety on how your eye shadows may come out and I do like that.  My favorite is the champagne and golden colors the pearl color is okay, when I bought it I thought it was going to be a white color primer so I wouldn't have to use a white base on top of the primer.  This is white but, it has a little to much glitter so it's not as matte as I thought it was but it's still usable I just would have to use a base.  The primer itself is really good, it does the job of what a primer is suppose to do for WAY less money less other primers on the market.  I have some of the Urban Decay primer potion in Eden which I really love but, I can't see myself spending $20 on it.  I got mines in a palette so it's like I got it for free and I don't have oily lids so I really don't need the real expensive stuff so that's why the elf works for me, not to say it won't work for someone with oily lids.  The new colors are a great addition and it gets 4 stars.
    

 

e.l.f. Studio Retractable Lip Brush


This is a great lip brush, it does what I need it to do and best of all since it's retractable I can travel with it and I really do love the sleek design of this brush.  There isn't much to say about this lip brush other than I like it so, I give it 5 stars.


 

e.l.f. Studio Single Eyeshadow

I feel that I speak for everyone who love elf products when I say that I'm glad they came out with some bright colors to their single eye shadows.  The color choices that was available before these colors were just okay, they were on the natural side so the eye looks you come up with using the shadows were limited.  But, now you can add so color in life and they're not half bad, you do need to use a base to make the colors show up better but, other than that I don't have any complaints.  I give these 4 stars.

 

e.l.f. Studio Body Shimmer


These body shimmers are a new product and I have to say that I like them.  Depending on your skin tone some of the colors can be used as a blush but, for the majority these will most likely be used as highlighters on the face as well as the neck and chest which I used on and I love the effect it gave.  The packaging kind of reminds me of a stick of deodorant but, it's not hard like it, these are very creamy and soft so, I would suggest dabbing this product on and not sweeping because you will get way to much.  Elf did good on the color selection because no matter what skin tone you are you can use just about every color.  Just for reference in Make Up Forever Duo Mat powder I'm shade 218 chocolate or since most people can relate in MAC's studio fix powder I'm shade NW45 and I can were all of these shades, the only color I have to use a light hand with is mystic moonlight.  These get 5 stars.
