ELF Mascara Haul


Eye stuff from elf. Mascara, primer liner and a concealer.
I'm on a hunt for a mascara. Will I find one I like?


Eye Primer & Liner Sealer

The Prime side sets your eyeshadow in so your color won't fade, bleed or crease. The Liner side transforms your favorite eye shadow into a waterproof, smudge-proof liquid liner with this unique clear liquid and built-in felt tip precision eyeliner brush. Now you can have your eye makeup lasting longer for no fuss no budge color.

Directions
Use the "prime" side to create a base for your eyeshadow. Apply to the eyelid and blend in. Use the "seal" side and mix your favorite eyeshadow color in with the brush and apply to the lash line as a liner. For best results wipe off and clean applicator before closing. Remove with eye makeup remover.

Net Weight: Primer: 0.09oz (2.5g) Sealer: 0.14oz (4g)

This primer is icky sticky. Great if you need and want that.
And it is really yellow, not sheer. Would have been better
if it was white or just lighter- in my opinion. But I only bougt this for
the liner sealer. I have used it only once with a loose pigment eyeshadow.
Worked ok but not on the water line. Hurt a bit. And I really do not know if
I will be using this as there are so many great eyeliners and pencils out there.
Can't really say if it is waterproof or not. I have to test it out somemore.

Mineral Infused Mascara
Mineral Infused Mascara creates fuller, healthier looking lashes. It enhances lashes for a naturally thicker and more volumized look. The long-wear formula and unique silicone brush creates clump free and defined lashes that last all day.
Directions
Apply 1 to 2 coats onto lashes, working from the base of the lashes to the tip.
Net weight: 0.28oz (8g)







I'm searching for a mascara that will not make my curled lashes
go straight. And these mascaras FAIL. They make my lashes loose their
curl. However I really like the brush on the Mineral Infused Mascara. It's
one of those silicone brushes. It is not too big and not too small. Great for
detail work. Best mascara from the elf mascaras I have tried. Did not make
my lashes go "as flat" as the other mascaras. But I will not repurchase it.
Other than that - nothing special with these mascaras. Just mascara.
- Never curl your lashes after applying mascara -

Revolutionary Liquid-Flex™ Technology

Concealer Pencil & Brush


Conceal and heal your acne with on the spot treatment. The medicated formula has active Salicylic Acid & Tea Tree Oil to clear blemishes and reduce scarring. The soft taklon bristle brush aids in creating a natural looking coverage under or over makeup so blemishes disappear and your true beauty shines through.

Description
Use the “conceal” side of the pencil to cover up any unwanted blemishes or imperfections. Use the “blend” brush to work the formula into the skin to create a beautiful and even coverage.
Net weight: 0.1oz (2.93g)

 On the swatch below, that I blended out on the right side, you see
that this is way too yellow for my skintone. And this is the lightest
shade available. This will be unused. It feels sticky and cakey.
Not a product I like or will use.
I have to compare it to the elf Eyebrow Lift & Filler. The lift side
might be similar in texture to this one. I have to try it out and see.


Wow I found products from elf that I am not too crazy about. Too bad about
the mascaras. Was really hoping on finding a mascara that works for me.
I'm using Maybelline colossal waterproof mascara right now. I use a lash-
curler and this mascara keeps the lashes curled. The brush is a bit big tho.

What is your favorite mascara/-s at the moment?
Any I should check out?
