Best of e.l.f make-up brushes

Hello my pretty berries,

Before we get started I wanted to mention that the brushes that I will talk about are the ones that I have tried and can honestly say that I love. I have already talked a little bit about e.l.f. cosmetics in my previous post. As you can tell, I am a big fan of their products and that includes their make-up brushes.

 

FACE BRUSHES:

e.l.f. Studio Kabuki Face Brush85011_kabuki-face-brush_900

It’s a synthetic bristle which is VERY soft and great for setting your make-up. I had mine for probably 2 years now and it’s still working very well and it hasn’t shed on me either.

 

e.l.f. Studio Stipple Brush & e.l.f. Studio Small Stipple Brush84025_900px_100011 84015_900px_100011

I friggin love both of these brushes! I use this for foundations, concealers, cream blushes, cream bronzers, etc. There are so much uses for something that cost $3.00 each.

 

e.l.f. Studio Complexion Brush11181_84002_A_900px_deptImg.jpg._deptImg

Great for setting your make-up and sometimes I would use this for bronzer if I want a bit of an overall glow without the intense contouring.

 

e.l.f. Studio Powder Brush11182_84003_A_900px_deptImg.jpg._deptImg

I’ve tried using this for both liquid and powder foundations in which they both apply really even on my face. It doesn’t get streaky either.

 

e.l.f. Studio Blush Brush11515R

I actually prefer to using this for applying highlighters because I think it’s a bit to tiny for my face if I use this to apply blush.

 

e.l.f. Studio Angled Blush Brush

Another brush that I actually have a different use for which is for my bronzer. The angled part of the brush really helps with making that nice contour without it being too harsh and it makes blending easier and faster.

 

EYE BRUSHES:

e.l.f. Studio Angled Eyeliner Brush84013_900px_100011

Such a simple tool but I cannot believe how much I rely on this whenever I apply my eyeliners. I would say that it works great for gel eyeliner.

 

e.l.f. Essential Blending Eye Brush10100_1803_A_900px_deptImg.jpg._deptImg

Blending, blending, blending, blending is the key to beautiful eye make-ups and in order to blend you need a blending blush and this brush is the perfect size. I should buy 5 more of this. By the way, all the “Essential” line is $1.00! I mean how can you not but spares just in case the apocalypse come at least you can keep on blending your eyeshadows? HAHA

 

e.l.f. Essential Eye Crease Brush1823_100011

I like to smudge my liner with eyeshadows and this is the brush I rely on. There’s not much to say but that it’s awesome and it’s what I use as part of my make-up routine almost all the time.

 

And that’s the wrap! That’s all my current favourite make-up brushes. If you have any favourite brushes that I should check out be sure to let me know on the comments below.

Don’t forget to like and follow =)

Kisses,

Joy

Favourite e.l.f. Products

Hello my pretty berries,
 
Today, I wanted to post some of my favourite e.l.f make-up products. These are just the products that I have tried and truly loved. Not to mention that they’re also affordable.
 
If you’re new or not too familiar with e.l.f. Cosmetics, it stands for e- eye l-lips and f-face. They have all affordable make-up products and brushes that is very much ideal for people who are just starting out with make-up or simply that you just don’t want to spend too much money on make-up and brushes but still get the same awesome quality. I would say though that for some products they turn out great but others are not so great but then again for the price that you pay for you kind of need to expect that there will be some good finds and bad ones (actually it’s the same concept with higher end products too). Also, I just wanted to put it out there that I am in no way shape or form being sponsored by e.l.f. Cosmetics nor have they sent me all these products because I purchased all with my own money.
 
 
 
 
hd blush - divae.l.f hd blushes
The e.l.f hd blushes are the bomb!! It’s so pigmented and a little amount goes a loooong way. One thing I learned when I first tried these babies were to use a really light hand with a stippling brush (much like the ones they sell in e.l.f). They retail for $3.00 each and they come in many many colours. The texture is quite smooth and creamy not to mention that it stays all day on the face.
 
 
 
countour:blush
Contouring blush & bronzing powder
Love these for travelling! I save space in my luggage every time I travel. As for the quality, they’re comparable to higher end blushes. They retail for $3.00 for the duo! Like come on how good of a deal is that; you just can’t pass it up.
 
 
 
blush-candid corale.l.f studio blushes
These are amazing too and it was one of my first make-up product that I ever bought so it has a special place in my heart (corny much hehehe). Anyways, They retail for $3.00 too so I mean the duo is a much better option but this is just as good of a quality too if you want more colour options.
 
 
wet gloss
Wet gloss lash & brow clear mascara
I pretty much just use this solely for setting my eyebrows. They work great and they’re $1.00!! As for the clear mascara side; I don’t really use it for my lashes but it’s the same formulation as the other side so I just use both sides for my eyebrows.
 
 
 
eyebrow-kit_darke.l.f eyebrow kit
All time eyebrow product favourite! It works great and I even use the brush that comes with it. It retails for $3.00 and it comes with a tinted wax side and a powder side. I have repurchased this kit many times which just further shows how great it is!
 
 
 
eye primerEyelid primer
This is another product that I have repurchased many times and they got different colours now which is just a bonus. They keep your eyeshadows last all day without creasing even if you have oily eyelids. This retails for $1.00!!! Come on!! Go get this if you haven’t yet.
 
 
 
shine eraserEssential shine eraser
It’s a recent purchase but I’m already liking this a lot. It keeps my oily skin at bay without ruining my make-up. It’s also $1.00 in comparison to other shine eraser sheets that costs $8.00. You just can’t beat it!
 
 
 
eyebrowse.l.f eyebrow filler & lifter
This is great if you just want to quickly fill out your eyebrows without spending too much time on it and the “lifter” part of it works great for highlighting and making your brows look more groom and clean around the edges. It retails for $3.00 so pretty much $1.50/side and it has a built in sharpener.
 
 
 
 
eyelinerEssential 3-pc liquid eyeliner set
Absolutely great for anyone starting out with make-up and you can get all three eyeliners for $3.00. I mainly use the black one and maybe the glittery ones when I go out or when there’s a special occasion. Overall, the longevity is okay and it does get a bit streaky so you have to keep drawing the line until it’s opaque enough but it’s good enough for day to day use.
 
 
 
 
That’s it for make-up related products that I have for e.l.f. Cosmetics. I was going to include my favourite e.l.f brushes too but there is just too much that I’m going to make a separate post solely focusing on their best make-up brushes. Follow me if you want to be updated on my blog posts😄
I know they have new products now so let me know in the comments sections if there are other e.l.f. products that I should try because I’m excited to do some online shopping! All of my e.l.f products are either purchased down in the United States or online because they don’t sell them here in Canada.
