Heck to the no!!! They aren't even in the same ball park when it comes to quality and color selection. The only thing I use from E.L.F is the blotting paper and a shadow brush. Too many of their products for the face...such as the tinted moisturizer has mineral oil listed second on the ingredients list.
they're not even in the same solar system, lol. I love love love NARS! It is a bit pricey but their products are amazing. Especially their lip pencils and blush. The pencils are really long lasting and they have these really wide ones that can be used in place of lipstick. I use dragon girl as my red lipstick of choice and it stays all day plus looks super sexy...perfect for a cheesecake look might I add.

Although Elf's packaging and products are very similar to the way Nars looks they're not the same. Like everyone else mentioned Nars is both more expensive and a higher quality but that's not at all a diss to Elf though. Idk if I've just been getting lucky but I have no problems with Elf. People love Nars for blushes mostly and I see a lot of people say Elf isn't as pigmented. Totally wrong. I'm not too sure about the shadows or lippies but I've used both brands and find Elf to be just as good. Their studio blushes are EXTREMELY pigmented. So much so that I apply with a light hand and stippling brush. I say try both brands. You might end up liking both like me (:
I got to go to Seohora and wow the NARS ORGASAM had not much pigmentation didn't even even show as a swatch I asked the SEPHORA lady and she said Orgasam is more of a light highlighter than a pigmented blush... Anyways Its all in my vlog that I'll post on tuesday on Yt. I realllly liked some of their stuff :) the tinted moisturizer felt nice.
Elf is very low end . As a MUA i would be shamed off a job if i came in with ELF. Take a trip to Ulta, Sephora or the like and look around for a line you like...or even NYX is better than elf.

To me orgasm doesn't swatch pigmented...Lots of blushes and bronzers don't. Orgasm looks very nice on the face though!
And I wear the tinted moisturizer every day, it's my favorite TM!
