e.l.f Product Review Part II

Following on from my previous post I will finish my review of e.l.f beauty products.

I thought I would give the e.l.f Mineral Infused Face Primer a go and see how it compares to other primers on the market. I have previously used Benefit and Clinique primers which are at the higher end of the price range. This primer priced at just £6 seemed to be worth a try. 

I chose the shade Radiant Glow because I thought it would be the best for my skin colour as I'm very pale. The consistency is nice a light, I just use one pump and that is enough to cover my whole face. It glides onto the skin easily and doesn't feel oily or drying at all. I have tried it out for a couple of weeks now and think it's great. I have worn it both under foundation and on its own and it looks great both ways. Defiantly a great value for money.

The next product is a designer dupe. Many top brands including Bobbie Brown have similar products to this on the market. Its used to correct tones in the face and brighten the skins appearance. It isn't a product I would usually buy but thought I'd give it a go.

The photo isn't very good quality unfortunately but you can see the slight colour correction the powder achieves. The powder itself is a lovely light texture which sits nicely on the skin. A product worth trying and at only £3.75 is a great price.

This product is the main reason for visiting the e.l.f website. I have have heard great reviews about this product being the dupe for NARS Laguna Bronzer and Orgasm Blush. On first look the packaging and colour looks extremely similar to that of the NARS product. Coming in the duo is highly convenient as it means you only need to carry one package in your makeup bag. 

The name of this duo is the Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in St Lucia, priced at £3.75 it once again is great value for money. The swatches shown show the colour as pretty dark, but when applied by a brush a light colour is achieved. The product is lighter and less pigmented then the NARS alternatives but for day to day use is ideal.
