I liked this one.
I bought this on the off chance as using it as a highlighter rather than a foundation as I knew it would be hard to match my shade. I cant quite remember what shade I eventually went for but It was around 3 shades lighter than my skin tone (NC40) I used this to create the highlight under my eyes and on the highs of my cheeks, down the middle of my nose and cupids bow. It was quick to apply and I blended out with a damp sponge. This worked well with my damp sponge but not so well with my brush but that was no big deal. I love this a quick go to product and it was a perfect highlighter for me as I don't really like the kid with lots of shimmer. An inexpensive bargain and it done the job giving a smooth flawless finish
- Star Y.
- Apricot Beige (fair)
I don't like using this product as a concealer because it's too thick for my skin. I have normal to dry skin so it gets really cakey on my face. It does provide great coverage but i just don't like the cakey concealer look. I decided to use this as a base for my eyes and love it! It cancels out all the redness on my lids and it makes my eyeshadows last so much longer. I own two different colors. I use the Light Beige one for my lids and the Apricot Beige one for my lips. It primes my lips and makes my lip products last so much longer and it makes the color stand out better. I would recommend this product to everyone to try out as a base because it's a cheaper alternative to the MAC Paint Pots.
I am in love with this my product! For £1.50 you can't complain it covers up any imperfections on my face! I like it more than my rimmel foundation :)
Not my cup of tea.
I purchased two of theses all over color sticks. However, I don't like the consistency of the product. It does have rich color payoff, but after wearing this on my cheeks for about an hour, I found myself going to the bathroom to scrub it off. It's deff heavy on your cheeks.. Works great as a lip product though.
It gave me very good coverage and it wasn't chalky (compared to a previous Drugstore stick concealer that I've bought.. I think it was Wet & Wild?)
I don't apply it directly from the container. I just pat it with my fingertip and then pat it onto my face and blend it in. It's creamy, too! ♥
The only problem I have with it is it does cling to any dry patches, so make sure to moisturize!
I was surprised by how much I enjoy this product! Is it the BEST drugstore concealer? No. I'd say the best one is Revlon PhotoReady, and this product is definitely not as good as that. However, I do like the coverage and I don't mind the thick consistency. I get best results when I dab it with my EcoTools concealer brush and then brush it on my face. I also top it off with my Bare Minerals multi-tasking concealer (this product makes all my not-so-great concealer work better, but I think I have found decent results without the Bare Minerals on top of the Elf concealer) to make it stick, especially under the eye area. I don't mind the tangerine/orange smell either... I kind of like it. This product is wayyyy creamy, which I like for a concealer because I feel like a liquid one never really covers much. This gives good coverage, especially for its price!
This was a product that I purchased from my first ever ELF haul. I thought that this would be a nice and small product to carry around in my purse for touch ups and what not. The packaging is really cheap, it's this cheap plastic tube with a twist application which didn't work too well for me.
Since I'm very fair skined I choose the suggested colour, but this shade has an orange tone to it (like a bad fake tan) and it's still too dark for my skin. The formula is really thick so it makes your skin look cakey and it does not blend out will. I have to say that the thing that threw me off the most about this product is the smell. It had this chemical orange smell to it. Definately save your money on this one.
I hate this thing
Its way to stiff. I have to press to hard to get something off and when you finally get something, its a hot mess. NO NO NO NO!!!!!! Never again. Its thick, chalky and messy. I dont think anyone should waste their dollar.
