E.L.F. products review

So you may remember a few days ago I had a bit of an E.L.F. haul! Well I got delivered the products on Monday which was super exciting so I thought I'd let you guys know some first thoughts.

1) E.L.F. Duo Eyeshadow Cream in Butter Pecan, £1.05 with 30% discount

I was a little disappointed in the colour on the left hand side as I really didn't expect it to be so orangey! I like the colour on the right hand side though and the duo is great value for money as I purchased it for a £1. The fact that the eyeshadow is a cream means that it feels really nice on the eye, especially as I had used the E.L.F eye primer beforehand. I would say though that you need quite a lot of eye shadow to get the colour that you desire which is a little tedious, I guess they're not as pigmented as other eye shadows I've used. But still, great value for money - I just might choose a different colour next time!

2) E.L.F. Radiance Enhancer in Sunrise, £2.63 with my 30% off discount

This was a silly colour choice by me. It looks quite pinky/goldy on the website but it's really dark!

I have very pale skin so I wouldn't recommend it for people with pale skin like me! I like the product itself but I should have chosen the paler colour. This essentially works like you'd expect of a normal highlighter except I found it a bit drying compared to the other highlighters I've used - Benefit and Topshop's Skin Glow that are slightly more moisturising. For the price it's a good product that adds an extra glow to your face.

3) E.L.F. Corrective Concealer in Light, £2.63 with 30% off discount

This is probably the product I was most impressed with in my order (minus the eyebrow kit, review coming soon!). The packaging states that you use the neutral colours like normal concealer, the grey to eradicate red marks and the pink counteracts blue-ish tones.

It feels really strange putting green concealer on red marks but it does lighten them. You have to use quite a lot of concealer to get it to stay I found but once you've added your powder you're good to go. So I fully recommend the corrective concealer, definitely!


Have you used any of these products? Do you want to?

ALSO: I'll be doing a giveaway for all you lovely people when I hit 50 followers. Please give me some ideas of what you'd want to get!


  1. The corrective concealer sounds really interesting, never used any green/pink shades for covering up! May give this a try xx

  2. I've not heard of Elf before but the correcting foundations sounds great! x
