e.l.f. cosmetics

   I decided to try e.l.f. cosmetics for the first time, because of their super affordable prices.  Their product is a dream for any broke college kid, so I didn't have much to lose.  Overall I am very satisfied with e.l.f.  Read below for my personal review. Product is listed from the following below, left to right.  Hope you enjoy my review and thanks for reading!

Tone Correcting Concealer in Light Beige
   I chose this concealer with the intent to cover dark under eye circles. It works best on top of foundation. I have such fair skin, not to mention terrible sleeping habits.  My under eyes are just too dark to be covered by e.l.f.'s concealer.  The product was only $1. It has the most amazing candy scent.  Also, it works best when blotted on with a brush, instead of rubbed in. I didn't quite get the coverage I wanted, but it still helps a little.  
High Definition Powder
The High Definition Powder was the most expensive of four at $6.  It is worn on top of everyday makeup to help set it in.  It is light weight, but can be a bit messy when not contained properly.  I would recommend this powder for anyone with oily skin, because it neutralizes the shine.  I warn you, it must be used in moderation, or it will look caked on.  
Moisturizing Lipstick in Pink Minx
The lipstick is no lie. It really is moisturizing and very creamy.  I bought Pink Minx because it is a natural pink shade, one that I could wear any day.  And I would be wearing it everyday, but it seems my cousin loves it more. So four thumbs up from the both of us.  This lipstick was $3. 
Shimmering Facial Whip
I am obsessed.  I use the whip for highlighting under my eyes and straight down the bridge of my nose.  It helps catch the light and set contrast for contouring. The shine looks excellent in photos, but if it is over done you can look sweaty and oily.  Another great reason to buy this is that it is only $1. It must be rubbed in very well, so no streak show.  The best part is that the whip smells like smarties candy.
