I use the eye shadow, eyeliner and brushes and have used the concealer before. I’m really not picky about make up but it works great for me!

I got a bunch of brushes from them and they seem fine to me. I couldn’t believe how cheap it was.

I use the flat top powder brush to put on my foundation! I have like 4 of them, It gives such a nice flawless finish and it doesnt get streaky like with the typical foundation bush ( the one that looks like a pain brush). And nothing is wasted becuase it doesnt get absorbed in those little triangle sponge things. 

I also like the eyeshadow primer, works for me. my eyeshadow doesn’t crease.

Try the matte lipstick that comes in like a jumbo twist pencil. The red one is said to be a dupe of MAC’s Russian Red.

Anyway, I like their products for the most part- they work for my skin and I’m not a makeup snob.

I have several of their brushes, and I love them. The eye primer works very well, and I’ve also used the clear gel for setting my eyebrows.

the quality is hit or miss. some things are amazing, some isn’t so great. their “studio” line is better than their regular line.

i adore their powder blushes (the ones in the black packaging), i think i have all of the ones i saw at target. and i LOVE their HD translucent finishing powder. it’s amazing, it works as well as the makeup forever HD finishing powder. their cream blushes are awesome as well.

their website has so much more stuff than any target i’ve ever been to. i haven’t ordered anything lately, but every so often i look and see what’s new.

Their studio line of brushes are quite nice.

I LOVE ELF products. I am very fair skinned so the foundation products don’t work well for me, but most of the other bits and pieces do. 

I always look at reviews before I purchase to make sure the products are good (or most people think they’re good), but I haven’t had any issues with any of the products.

@figgnewton:  I am a faithful user of their brushes and lip products, and have a little set of black, white, and grey shadows. The brushes are as good as any other company, even really high end ones. They are amazing. Their kabuki brush is literally the softest I have ever felt. Their lip products have thus far all been pretty darned good for me, but my favourite is their liquid lipstick. 

The eyeshadow I mostly use for going over black liner to set it, but it works great for that, and the couple of times I used the shadows for actual colour they seemed fine, to my recollection.

Also, a lot of youtube makeup gurus have done elf products reviews so you might look that up – a lot of times they will say which products worked well for them and which didn’t. That was helpful to me before I bought anything from them.

My experience has been the same as a PP, very hit or miss. Worth trying out because it’s so inexpensive to see what works for you :)!

I enjoy their brushes, I have quite a few for eyeshadow.  I’ve only ever used their mascara.  I thought it was great for the price I paid.  I have very long natrual eyelashes to begin with, so I don’t need a lot of mascara to really give ’em oomph.

@figgnewton:  I use their translucent powder to set my makeup and I like it. I tried their gel eyeliner and it dried up after a day.

I love their angled eyeliner brush and eyebrow gel. I bought the eyebrow gel/ shadow kit and do not like it at all. I haven’t tried blushes or foundations so I can’t say much on that.
