The BEST elf Products

The BEST elf Products that I have tried and recently discovered over the past six months!  I have been trying to save money on my monthly makeup splurges and I’ve purchased almost everything elf makes as an investment to discover dupes to some of my favorite high end makeup. I would much rather purchase a product that costs $3 instead of $30! I’ve found 30 elf makeup products that I love and I have repurchased many times – replacing expensive products and saving me money. I’m also trying to replace all my makeup with cruelty free brands and elf is cruelty-free! Yay! Elf has some hits and misses. You cannot beat the price on most elf products, making it worth your while to try. Check out my faves – the best elf products I have tried.

You might have noticed elf makeup products are significantly cheaper than most makeup brands. If you read the ingredients, you’ll also see that elf uses the majority of the same ingredients many high end makeup companies use. However, all of elf’s ingredients are paraben free,  do not contain preservatives or harmful dyes. Top top it off, elf is CRUELTY FREE! Yay! Elf is a great company! Elf Cosmetics are manufactured in China for a very low cost and the savings carry through to your wallet! I was surprised how many elf products go the extra mile to include skin loving ingredients such as vitamins and SPF. There’s many elf dupes that I have discovered! Check out my list below of The BEST elf Products!

Elf also gives us hints that they have created dupes by creating similar packaging as the high end makeup companies. I have included my top 30 elf products in the video I made below. I also listed my top ten favorite elf products below + my favorite #1 elf DUPE! You might want to purchase these too so I have links to the elf website. Do you have a favorite elf product?

The best elf products I have discovered

Here’s a list of the top 10 best elf products below.

#1 e.l.f. Studio Flawless Finish Foundation (I wear sand) $6
This elf foundation feels so light and clean on my face. This was my “go to foundation” for Summer. I apply it with a sponge applicator (my real techniques sponge) over my elf mineral face primer (the purple one). The price is so low, it’s irresistible to give it a try. I also want to mention this did not break out my sensitive acne-prone skin.

#2 e.l.f. Mineral Pearls $8

These help brighten up your complexion. I look more “awake” when I use this on my face. This is perfect if your face is looking dull or ashy. It’s also perfect for blending your powders such as your blush or bronzer. You can buff out and blend your powders nicely while creating a soft glow. I actually had to pour out half of the mineral pearls because when I dipped my brush into this they would spill out. (Not fun to vacuum up if you accidentally step on them either.) This is a beautiful design nonetheless.

*Dupe alert: The elf mineral pearls $8.00 are a dupe for the Guerlains Meteriorites, $60.00 – Also an inexpensive DUPE for the Physicians Formula’s bronzing beads – $14.95

#3 e.l.f. Mineral Pressed Mineral Foundation
After my elf flawless finish foundation, I love setting my makeup using this mineral pressed powder! I actually like to use the powder puff it comes with to press it into my skin’s T-zone for a matte finish and keep my T-zone shine-free. There’s great coverage too. I love to press this puff into my skin. I prefer using this than my MAC Studio fix in N20. Best of all, elf is cruelty free unlike MAC Cosmetics – they’re NOT cruelty free anyone.

I LOVE using this shimmery powder on the top of my cheekbones. I’ve had mine for 1 year and it still looks barely used!

#5 e.l.f. Studio Prism Eyeshadow -$10  Sunset
I love the shimmer this palette has.
I also did a review on just this palette! I created a wild shimmery look with it too. Check out my elf Studio Prism Eyeshadow Review here. This palette also comes in two other color schemes – there’s a pretty neutral shimmer palette! Probably the most expensive eyeshadow palette on the website!

#8 e.l.f. Studio BB Cream SPF 20 $6
I use this everyday! Even if I’m having a “makeup-free” day this gives your face a nice glow – tiny hint of coverage and has SPF 20. If you have dry skin, this feels very soothing and moisturizes.

This makes your skin feel so silky smooth. I have tried the other elf primers without luck and this one is the best one!

#10 e.l.f. Studio HD Lifting Concealer – $3 (color – brightening)
I love using this to contour my face as well as conceal. This works just as good as my Maybelline fit me concealer and my fav NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer. This has a slight touch of luminosity to it, making it light reflective and ideal for contouring. I also like to use this under my eyebrows to make them appear freshly plucked.
