The 7 Best ELF Products | All Under $12

Hey Everyone!

This post is inspired by a photo that I seen on Pinterest where someone was sharing their favourite 14 products by ELF. I decided to keep my favourites to a minimum and only chose to share my top 7 favourite items from ELF with my readers.

1. ELF Makeup Mist & Set - I talk about this all the time and it has been in many of my empties posts. I have gone through over a dozen of these and always have a few on hand at all times. I use this both under and over my makeup to set it in place - as a primer and as a finishing spray. I also apply this after my moisturizer on days that I am not wearing any makeup on my face. It both moisturizes and soothes the skin. Inside there are key ingredients such as: Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C & E. One bottle retails for $3 USD on their web site and you can even find them in Canadian stores now such as RCSS.

2. ELF Translucent Mattifying Powder - I have only had this powder for a short time but it already one of my favourites and it came at the perfect time! I do not use the sponge that it comes with and I like to apply this powder to my face with a brush. You could use the ELF Kabuki or Complexion Brush. The powder is very soft, silky, lightweight and easy to work with. I do have a very oily face and this helps me stay matte. I do have to reapply throughout the day though and this powder does not make me breakout. This powder does have some shimmer in it but it is not noticeable on me at least. You really can’t go wrong with this powder because it is only $3 USD on the web site and is one of ELF’s ‘Top Rated’ products.

3. ELF Powder Blush Palette in Light - There are 4 beautiful shades in this palette and there is also another version of this palette for deeper skin tones which I am going to purchase for when I am more tanned. It is going for $6 USD on the web site and that means that each pan is only $1.50 which is incredible! You can even mix two of the shades together to get your own custom shade. I love travelling with this palette and it is great to throw into your purse! It has the right amount of pigmentation and the shades are easy to blend out.

4. ELF Precision Sponge Trio - You get 3 different sized makeup sponges that are super soft. The largest size is pretty much the same size as a beauty blender. The smaller sponge reminds me of the beauty blender micro mini and I will be using it predominately for my under-eye area. I wish that they weren’t white because they will get stained and very dirty, but of course, that is something very minor. You are after all getting three sponges for about half of what one beauty blender actually costs. This trio retails for $12 USD on the web site and the breakdown is $4 per sponge.

5. ELF Matte Lip Colour - I have many of the shades and have used up an entire tube of Tea Rose in the past. You really can’t beat the price at $3 USD. The colour range is ever growing and when you see a shade that you like, made sure to purchase it right away on their web site because many of the colours do go out of stock frequently! These colours are pigmented and the three shades that I have been loving at the moment that are pictured above are: Tea Rose (A Light Dusty Pink,) Dash of Pink (A Reddish Pink,) and Wine (A Deep Berry,) that is perfect for fall! They are enriched with Vitamins A, C & E to help moisturize and hydrate the lips. Another plus is that there is a hidden sharper at the end of your pencil in-case you need to use one! 

6. ELF Kabuki Face Brush - I have had this brush for many years and it has held up through many washes. It has excellent reviews on the ELF web site and retails for $6 USD. You can use this to apply loose or pressed powder to your face but I like to use it to blend together my: highlighter, blush, bronzer and/or contour. This is a synthetic haired Taklon brush that is very soft and you can use it to apply wet or dry products to the face. You can even use this on your body to buff in product! 

7. ELF Complexion Brush - Again, I have had this brush for many years and I have used it numerous times. It is very inexpensive retailing at just $4 USD. This is part of their Studio Line and you can use it to apply powder but I really like using it to apply blush to the apples of my cheeks! It is soft, the perfect length and is very lightweight. This brush does most of the work for you! 

Honourable Mentions: (items that I have used up that I no longer have to show you.)
ELF Shadow Lock Eyelid Primer & ELF Lip Exfoliator
