E.L.F Favorites!

I have a variety of ELF products in my collection, but I wanted to focus this post on some of my favorites, ones that I will definitely be repurchasing.

My first favorite is the ELF Eyelid Primer. This primer helps prep your eyelids for a longer lasting, crease proof eyeshadow. The primer absorbs quickly and really helps to smooth out the eyelid for eyeshadow application. This is one of my very favorite ELF products, and at only $1,  I have and will repurchase this one!

My next fave is the ELF Powder Brush. I just recently purchased this brush after watching a lot of youtube videos on it, and I must say that I am sorry I waited so long to try it. You can use this brush with wet or dry products. I love to use this with my liquid foundation. I stipple the foundation on and then buff it in for an almost airbrushed finish. This is a synthetic haired Taklon brush that is antibacterial, more absorbent, and so soft. At only $3, I am really loving this brush!!

The next one on my fave list is the Matte Lip Color in Nearly Nude. This is perfect for a soft nude lip! I love to apply this to my lips and then my Physicians Formula lip plumping Potion in Crystal Pink. This is the perfect combo. I don't like this on its own, because it is matte, but with a gloss over it, it is amazing and at only $3 it is a great bargain!!
The last on my list is the ELF High Definition Powder. This powder is a translucent loose powder that creates a "soft focus" effect on the skin. It helps to mask fine lines and minor imperfections of the skin to give a smooth glowing finish. I have read in some reviews that if you have a olive or dark skin complexion that this can give you an almost "white overcast," but I have very fair skin and have not experienced this. They do have two new colors: Shimmer and Corrective Yellow, but I have not tried these yet. I think for $6 I will be repurchasing this one!

These are only a few of my favorites, I will do another post soon with some more of my faves  so keep an eye out!! :)
