Tester Wednesday Minimalist Makeup| Elf Cosmetics

 

Another  Wednesday, another Tester Wednesday! Every week, I’ll share with you products I’ve tested. It could be new products, rediscovered makeup brand or best or worst products before hitting the bin. These last few days have just flown by for me and I’m hoping the weekend won’t feel as quick.

Anyways, have you shopped at Walmart lately? I’ve bits and pieces of products from Elf to talk about in today’s tester Wednesday.

This week, I want to talk about Elf makeup products which I picked up about a week ago.

I got the Cream Eyeliner in Black and HD Undereye Setting Powder in Sheer. 

Let’s start with their Cream Eyeliner first!

Now some time ago, I tried the Maybelline Gel Liner and I just didn’t care for it. That’s part of the reason I held out on trying this e.l.f liner for so so long. I could order it online but decided not too. I’m really excited to see a good selection of products at Walmart Canada. So, this is the first cream eyeliner I have purchased from e.l.f and I absolutely like it but not love love! If you know what I mean? It lasts for a really long time without having it smudge or faded. So ya, I’m happy the way it makes my eyes look bigger!

At the beginning,  I’ve some difficulty doing winged eyeliner with the brush. Too bad the brush is really small and I find it hard to control, otherwise the brush would be perfect. Definitely need some work to perfect a winged eye and I suggest to use your own brush.

It does goes nice and smooth and I really like the formula. It dries up pretty fast and once it sets, it’s a little harder to remove. If that makes sense.

I honestly think that this is not a product for someone who is new to makeup. I do feel that the product is good but you definitely need much more practice to get a perfect wing. Secondly, I would like to see some improvement on the pigmentation department. Don’t get me wrong, I really like this product but it definitely could get some extra pigmentation that includes darker black formula could hit the mark.

I personally find this cream liner works best if you’re planning for a bold pop evening look (a bit thicker stroke). It seems thinner stroke doesn’t cut it as I would’ve expected. It definitely a good liner if your planning on doing a winged or cat eye look.

Can you tell, can you tell!

Overall, I think the quality of this product is pretty decent for what it’s worth. For this price, you can’t possibly go wrong with it.

The new Elf High Definition Undereye Setting Powder in Sheer/Transparent with net wt: 0.04 oz.

It BLURS my dark circles under my eyes like no one’s business. “Blur” is really the right word to use with this product, as that is really what it does. The formula is super fine and silky like. Such a soft and smooth texture that I can apply them everywhere. Okay! Not everywhere but all over my face.

Elf High Definition Undereye Setting Powder kinds reminds me of a cross between Laura’s version and Benefit’s. This is a translucent pinkish powder with a hint of shimmer which is a bit brightening, and has a thinner consistency of silica powder.

The glass jar packaging is quite nice and for CAD$3.97 only at Walmart, I suggest you to give it a try. Did I mentioned that it comes with a brush for application? Well it does but I still prefer using my own brush to set.

The thin powder doesn’t crease into fine lines on your undereyes. It sort of blur them out nicely. Another benefit of this product is that it sets your concealer for longer wear. Hurray!

E.L.F. product is cruelty free in case you want to know.

Conclusion! I dare say this is a cheap thrill product that’s worth picking up!

Thank you guys for stopping by!
