e.l.f. products worth trying (30% off today only)

I just got an email from elf saying they are having 30% off all orders of $25 or more if you enter the code FRIENDS at checkout.   This is a great deal!  Elf is already very affordable so with this discount you could get quite a bit of product!  Also, if you miss this deal, you can pick up most of these products at your local Target!
Here are some of my favorites that I think are worth trying!
elf Studio Contour Brush $3
 This brush works great to smudge color on the lower eye lid or pack color into the crease.
elf Studio Blush Brush $3
I don't typically use this as a blush brush because it's a little too small and pointed but it works great as a bronzer or contour brush!  I also like using this for a powder highlight!
elf Studio Lip Exfoliator $3
I use this every night!  It scrubs my lips good but is still gentle.  This also leaves my lips moisturized.
elf Studio Matte Lip Color in Natural $3
I know I've said before that matte lipsticks are not a friend to dry lip girls but this has be the one exception I've found.  First of all this color is so pretty!  (Don't waste your money on the shade Nude though!)  I just pat on a very small amount of lip balm and then put this color over it.  It's so pretty!
elf Studio Blush in Peachy Keen $3
These blushes are easy to blend, the color options are great and they wear well!
elf Professional Studio Pigment Eyeshadow $3
I have a love/hate relationship with pigments.  They looks so pretty but I hate dealing with the mess they can create.  These pigments look gorgeous packed on the lid.  Always use some type of eyeshadow base first, it will grab hold of the pigments and help them to stay in place.  I recommend using your finger when applying, I think you can get the best payoff and least amount of fallout that way.
A few things I DON'T recommend:
Elf Studio Cream Eyeliner:  If your eyelids are the littlest bit oily this will transfer.
Elf Studio High Definition Powder:  This just didn't work for me.  It looked cakey and there are small glitter flecks in the powder.  I don't know about you but I don't want glitter all over my face.
Elf Studio Matte Eyeshadow:  These just looked chalky and cheap on my eyelid.  :(
What are you elf recommendations?


  1. I love ELF brushes and blushes! Truly such great quality, especially for the price.

    1. I agree! I had to narrow down my recommendations for brushes because I have quite a few that I enjoy from their studio line. Thanks for your comment. I've been following your blog for a while now and love it! :)
