Their kind Brand Manager, Ms. Sidrah Nayyer sent me the following products that I’m gonna review today:
- Blush in Tickled Pink.
- Baked Eyeshadow Trio in Smoky Sea.
- Jumbo Lip Gloss in Movie Star.
- Essential Lipstick in Flirtatious.
- Powder Brush.
So, I’ll just start with this review in case you want to get your paws on these products while you can.🐾
BLUSH (IN TICKLED PINK)
The soft sheer texture blends into the skin for a silky finish. Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth. Highlight your complexion with a subtle healthy glow!✨
The packaging is simple. It comes in a black container with a small mirror.
This blush-on is perfect for the ‘no-makeup’ makeup look because it gives out a very natural look. It doesn’t look made-up or caked-on in any way. It blends beautifully and induces a look so natural that it’s hard to not love. Also, I so adore the light flush & shimmer that it gives.😍
I prefer my blush shade to be very mild and natural but if you’re someone who loves a strong blush look; this probably may not be your cup of tea because I found it to be very pale and bit on the peachy side. Unfortunately, it has a poor pigment & I achieved a noticeable blush on my cheeks after several swipes. Here’s a swatch!💎
This is how I looked like wearing this blush:
BAKED EYESHADOW TRIO (IN SMOKY SEA)
Three gorgeously coordinated colors come together to create a stunning look. Baked in an oven, these eye-shadows offer rich pigmentation for a beautiful effect. Infused with active key ingredients Jojoba, Rose, Sunflower, Apricot and Grape to nourish and hydrate the skin. The long-lasting and shimmering color can be worn wet for a vibrant effect or dry for sheer pigmentation, offering a variety of gorgeous eye looks!
This trio comes in a standard black plastic case with a clear lid.
This trio are super gorgeous & truly impressed me! I really enjoyed the baked formula and how you can control how bold you want your look to be because they are kind-of less pigmented but fortunately, build-able. The colors got me so excited in the first glance as they were so pretty in the pan & even prettier when swatched.💕
Just like other baked shadows, you can use these wet or dry so it’s really versatile. I’m not into eyeshadows much but I loved how my friend created an absolutely stunning smokey eye look with it. Overall, they are great quality and something that’s worth every penny.💰
Here’s a swatch:
JUMBO LIPGLOSS (IN MOVIE STAR)
The Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick is a tinted lip color that glides on like a lipstick but looks like a gloss. With nourishing Jojoba, Soybean and Vitamin E key ingredients, it conditions and moisturizes the lips. The twist-up component and smooth glide formula is easy to use for on-the-go application.
Packaging is really good. Thanks to the twist up style packaging, it is also very easy to use this product. e.l.f. Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick comes in a twist up crayon form with a transparent cap.✨
This one’s probably my favourite out of all the products I got from e.l.f. This lip-gloss has a creamy texture. It keeps my lips hydrated and at the same time gives a shiny look to the lips that looks super natural. It is moisturizing and glides smoothly on lips although I need to apply it 2-3 times to bring proper shade (since it’s a gloss, that justifies the weak pigmentation). It is almost like a tinted lip-balm for me, very moisturizing for the lips & it lasts for a decent 2-3 hours. But within 2 hours, it loses its glossy shine and remains as a stain for an hour (at best) more that gives a really pretty rosy colour to the lips that looks really mild & natural. It has a very sweet, bubblegum sort of smell that seems really pleasant to me but super unpleasant to some (but it’s okay because it goes away after a while).
Overall, a great product with an extremely reasonable price. If you’re on the look-out of an inexpensive alternative of those expensive Clinique Chubby Sticks, you’re on the right blog😊
ESSENTIAL LIPSTICK (IN FLIRTATIOUS)
Indulge your lips with long lasting color and shine. The moisture rich formula hydrates, conditions and softens on contact for silky smooth lips. Instantly beautiful, healthy-looking lips designed, formulated and tested by our professional team of makeup artists.
The packing isn’t really admirable, I have to admit that. You’re simply getting a plastic tube of lipstick which is silver in colour. You also see the little clear window near the middle which helps you to see the shade of the lipstick you have. Also, the lid stays intact (which is great!). The packing do look sort of less reliable but you’re getting a good amount of lipstick in it in such a reasonable price.💃🏻
If you’re a matte lover, this lipstick isn’t for you as it gives off a really glossy finish.
It is really soft & creamy so I won’t recommend this for summers when it’s super sunny outside and you have to keep a lipstick in your bag because a creamy lipstick like this as it has a high tendency to melt/break-off. However, it’s still a great product for its price. Essential lipstick, as the name suggests, is great for daily use. It’s a really mild colour, looks great with light-coloured clothing or for a day on the beach.🌥🌤
On the other hand, my mom love glossy lipsticks. I gave it to her and she LOVED it. 💙This lipstick isn’t drying for the lips at all which makes it ideal for daily use and for a natural make-up look. This is a beautiful bubblegum pink & has a sweet scent (that fades away after a while) but is over-all extra creamy and smooth with medium pigmentation.
💰Price: Rs. 399/-
ELF Powder Brush use on the face to apply, blend or contour powder products evenly and flawlessly. The soft rounded corners deliver a light blend of color on the face. Perfect for applying both pressed and loose foundation, bronzer or blush powders.
This brush is really soft & gives an ideal dusting of makeup but one thing’s for sure, it’s a little too small to use for powder. It might be better useful for adding highlight or a little bit of blusher maybe. Overall, the brush is very soft, has a great quality & feels nice on the face. I usually use it to apply my under eye concealer & highlighter & it applies them both evenly and without harsh lines & because of it’s smaller head, it’s beyond perfect for putting blush on the apples of my cheeks. It’s soft and is easy to use if you are in the market for a simple brush that gets the job done. I would definitely recommend this brush to the people who’re starting with makeup as this brush is pretty decent for the cost. I love it!❤️
