So, imagine my delight when I was contacted by a representative of e.l.f. and asked if I would like to be sent products to review and all I had to do was give my honest opinion about what I thought of them? Umm, where do I sign-up? Christmas came early, y’all!
This post is all about my favorites of the bunch because these particular products have taken up permanent residence in my make-up bag. Like it’s getting ridiculous how much e.l.f. I wear and the fact that I never heard of them until a few months ago still blows my mind.
In no particular order, here are 5 of the e.l.f. products I can’t live without now, so obviously, neither should you.
1. e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer –
|$6 - [BUY]|
This primer is the bomb dot com. I loves it and will not be putting foundation on without it. I use my toner, moisturizer and then about 2 squirts of the primer. It’s very light gel texture and makes your foundation just blend in smoothly and effortlessly. GET. IT. No one likes a girl with streaky foundation.
|$3 - [BUY]|
You need. It dries semi-matte, but is a little dewy. Basically it’s like lotion that lightly evens your skin tone out. Plus it has SPF 20 to prevent against dreaded wrinkles. Other than ending up on Dateline, my biggest fear in life is looking old and haggard before I’m supposed to. This should help.
|$3 - [BUY]|

I have very fair skin. The fairest. And by fair, I mean ghastly pale, so I use sunless tanners a lot. Sometimes I’m tanned and sometimes I’m au naturel, which means I have to keep two shades of foundation around.
Since I’m all about finding ways to simplify my life, I don’t want to have to keep up with the two different shades of powders too. This is where translucent powder comes in.
For the longest I’ve used Clinique Invisible Matte Sheer Pressed Powder, so I was skeptical to try e.l.f.’s version out. Why fix what isn’t broke, right? But, if I could find something cheaper that worked just as well, it was worth the shot.
I’m glad I tried it because it works just the same! The only thing is that the e.l.f. compact is considerably smaller in size, but at $3 a pop, a few of these is still cheaper than one Clinique powder. I’m sold and the switch is official.
5. e.l.f. Professional Total Face Brush
|$1 - [BUY]|
There you have it! My first official “haul” ever. There are several other products I tested out, which I will be reviewing in the future. I figured I’d start out with my faves, then reveal the rest later.
*When I've posted about e.l.f. in the past, I've received several questions about where to purchase e.l.f. Target (although not all) carries e.l.f. However, their biggest selection is online, which is where I ordered everything I reviewed in this post. Obvi, I don't like shipping costs and I'm sure neither do you. Lucky for us, until August 1, use the code SHIP25 at checkout and get free shipping! You're welcome.
