e.l.f. Review & Giveaway

e.l.f., eyes lips face, is a great company! They have a 'ginormous' line of beauty products. If you want to get beautified, this is your one stop shop! There is something at e.l.f. for just about every part of your body!

Eyes- Eyeshadow, eyeliner, mascara, concealer & primers, eyebrows, false eyelashes, tools, sets, brushes.
Lips- Gloss, lipstick, lipliner, lip treatments, brushes, sets.
Face- Foundation, concealer, powder, blushes, bronzers, brushes, cleansers, primer, shimmer, tinted moisturizer, tools

They even sell body lotions and hand soaps! Like I said, there is something for almost everything!

When I learned that I was going to have the privilege to review for e.l.f., I was estatic! When the package finally arrived, I was even more excited! Here is what I was greeted with when I opened my bundle of goodies!:


Forget costly Collagen injections, or those painfully stinging glosses, stimulate your senses to a refreshed full perfect pout with e.l.f. Plumping Lip Glaze! e.l.f. proudly presents a revolutionary lip plumper, infusing natural ingredients that awaken your senses for fresh, volume enhanced, and moisturized lips. This dual sided Plumping Lip Glaze has a tinted color for a subtle plump or a clear gloss that power plumps your lips, use together and instantly feel the lip enlarging effects!

Oooo, these are AWESOME! They really work! They make your lips full and plump! You put the clear glaze on first. The package says it shocks your lip for instant fullness. Yeah, it's not lying! When I put it on the first time, it shocked me. It started tingling. Almost like it was medicated. Once the initial shock wore off, I noticed that my lips felt bigger. I put on the tinted glaze which magnifies new lips contour and BAM, I had a brand new set of lips! I'm impressed with this product and will continue to use it!

Nail Polish- Punk Puple, Fire Coral, and Sunset

This color-lock formula with chip resistant shield gives long lasting nail color with high shine. The aerodynamic bristle design glides color on flawlessly, while the quick dry formula gives perfect application every time. Key nutrients give nails that natural shine, infused with Vitamin E for stronger, healthier nails.

Our formula is FREE of: Toluene, Formaldehyde, and Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP). Net Wt: .35oz (10ml)

I love nail polish. I don't paint my fingernails too often, but during the warm months, you wont catch me without polish on my toes! I think it's one of the most girly things you can do to yourself! I love that they are chip resistant! I'm always on the go, and always hitting things. Stubbing toes, washing dishes..you know how being a mom is! It' nice to not have to stop daily and repaint nails. Or, constantly hide them so people can't see how bad they look. The fact that they are infused with Vitamin E for stronger nails is just one more plus and I'm going to gush over! Please, stop me when you just can't stand the excitment anymore! OK, I"LL STOP!.....Haha, NOT! I have more goodies to talk about! :)



Create a healthy and natural glow all year long. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of color, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition.



Adding definition to your face does more than you know! To me, it give you more of a high fashion look. Blush can make you glow! Who wouldn't want to glow!?  This product goes on easy and blends very well. I have problems with blending blushes, but this blush blends nicely. The bronzer also does a great job. At first I thought it was going to be too dark, but that turned out to be wrong. It blended well and gave me the perfect amount of depth! When I wear this duo, I have a healthy, natural glow!


Lip Stain- Birthday Suit

Achieve full coverage that lasts for hours with this long-wear formula. Enjoy silky matte color or layer on the moisturizing clear gloss for a shiny look. With key Vitamins A & E your lips stay smooth all day long.

I enjoyed this as well. Ok, so yeah, I loved it all! :) The lip stain is nice because you don't have to keep reapplying. One less thing that you have to carry around in your purse! The color is nice. Very subtle. I don't wear lipstick, just glosses, so the subtle color is great for me!


e.l.f.’s philosophy is that beauty comes from within and it's our goal to enable every woman to look and feel her personal best through the perfect blend of both the inner and outer person. With that goal in mind, e.l.f. cosmetics was born – a line of simple, luxurious, problem-solution tools that allow you to showcase and believe in your unique, personal beauty. Our cosmetics are designed to improve and accentuate the individual, not hide her away.

e.l.f. gets the thumbs up from me, and I totally recommend the company! :)
