Did you know that ELF Cosmetics has just launched onto Feelunique?! I had no idea but it’s such an amazing addition to the Feelunique brand directory, especially as Feelunique always have such generous discount codes, free gift offers and free samples at checkout. Until last year we were only able to buy ELF via the ELF UK website which actually ships from the US so you could be levied with a large customs fee, but they launched into Superdrug last year but the new ELF launches take such a long time to reach the Superdrug website so I’m delighted ELF Cosmetics are now available via the Feelunique website.
I’ve featured a lot of ELF products on my blog over the last five and a half years, and I’m a really big fan of the brand. I hate seeing people being snobs about more affordable brands as you don’t always have to spend a lot of money in order to get good quality products.
As with any brand the products can be a little hit and miss, but as a whole I’ve been really impressed with everything I’ve tried from ELF so if you haven’t tried any of their products before, them launching onto Feelunique is the perfect oppurtunity. I have a collection of bestselling ELF Cosmetics products to show you as well as a giveaway so keep on reading…
ELF Cosmetics Tone Adjusting Face Primer – Brightening Lavender £7.50
I have tried a couple of the ELF Primers before but never the Brightening Lavender version. It’s a bright purple coloured primer designed to neutralise skin tones, and transforms your face into a flawless, smooth canvas for long-lasting makeup application.
The bottle is a pastel lilac colour so I was really surprised to discover the primer is actually a vivid purple and it does leave the skin looking a little purple toned so it’s not a primer I’d recommend wearing unless you’re going to apply foundation over the top as you might end up rocking the Barney the Purple Dinosaur look. The purple colour works to colour correct any yellow tones, and has a silicone texture to smooth the surface of the skin and blur the pores.
ELF Cosmetics Highlighting Brush £4.50
The ELF makeup brushes are amazing for the price, and this Highlighting Brush is no exception. It’s a slim, tapered brush designed for precision highlighting on the cheekbones and brow bones with synthetic taklon bristles. The tapered design of the brush works well for contouring too so I’ve bought a second brush so I could use one for contouring and one for highlighting, but I am even tempted to get another for blush as it’s so versatile and works really well with powder products and it’s under five pounds which is crazy. I haven’t had any issues with shedding, and the bristles feel very soft on the skin.
ELF Baked Highlighter – Apricot Glow £5
The ELF Baked Highlighters are a strange product as they’re virtually unusable straight from the box. The domed design of the baked highlighter means the powder is very hard, and tightly packed so when you go to use it straight away, it gives practically zero pigment whatsoever.
You do however have to lightly scrape the surface of the dome to make the product come to life, and once you’ve done that it’s a very gorgeous highlighter but it’s just frustrating that you can’t use it without scraping the top. I have three different shades and they all perform the same, and once you have scraped Apricot Glow it’s a beautiful, warm copper toned shade which would look beautiful on deep/dark skintones.
ELF Nude Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette £10
This eyeshadow palette is one of my favourite budget eyeshadow palettes and it’s £10, so seeing as I already own this palette and reviewed it here, I’m going to give it away to one lucky reader alongside the next product which I also already own so keep on reading so you can enter. It’s a ten shade powder eyeshadow palette with a gorgeous rose gold theme, and it reminds me of the Urban Decay Naked 3 Palette very much with the gold and rosy tones. The pigmentation is very good, and the packaging is super sleek so I’d really recommend trying one of the 10 pan ELF eyeshadow palettes as I love them all.
ELF Lip Exfoliator – Brown Sugar £4.50
The ELF Lip Exfoliators are one of my favourite products ELF do and I have this version; Brown Sugar, as well as Rose. It’s a solid lip balm infused with vitamin E, shea butter, avocado, grape and jojoba oil to condition the lips whilst the grains of sugar work to gently buff the lips. The exfoliator has a nice sugary scent and it’s so much less messy than the Lush Lip Scrubs as you don’t have to worry about dropping sugar, but I always like to use the ELF Lip Exfoliators prior to applying any lip colour as they remove any dry patches and perfectly prep the lips in just one swipe!
