FOTD using ELF mineral products

Hey!
Today I decided to test ELF mineral products: foundation, concealer, blush, mineral booster, eyeshadows, lip gloss. Here are the results: 
Yes, I was brave enough to show you my naked face, a few zits and uneven skin tone, I´m just human you know :D I am wearing only mascara, otherwise my lashes are almost invisible.
Here are face products that I used: 
ELF mineral products are the only ones that I´ve ever tested, so I can´t compare them to anything. Foundation is little bit light for me at the moment, but I ordered it in May, when my skin was lighter. Fortunately I did not have time to go to beach and take sunbaths this summer, so my skin remains more youthful.
Foundation has light coverage, but you can build it up to medium if you apply several layers. 
Concealer seems to be very light at first, but actually the lightness helps to cover my modest dark circles nicely. 
ELF mineral blush in rose is REALLY pigmented, I applied only a little bit and still got quite colorful cheeks. 
For eyes I used Socalite all over the lid and a little bit of royal in the crease. For application I used ELf stucio C brush and for blending and crease I used my sigma e25 travel size blending brush. I used these eyeshadows, because I own only 3 of elf mineral eyeshadows and third one is trendy - I don´t like that eyeshadow- applies very sheer and is quite shimmery. 
I don´t own any ELF mascaras so I used my favorite Loreal voluminous (I don´t buy several mascaras, because they dry out and that would be just a waste of money, atm I have 3). 
For eyeliner I used ELF cream eyeliner in black. Nice creamy eyeliner, it is not the blackes black I´ve ever seen, but it is quite ok. Once it is try, it stays on your lids preatty well. 
On my lips I applied ELF mineral Lip gloss in Fierce (again only mineral lip gloss that I own). I ordered this color, because it seemed to be most pigmented one on swatch pictures. Texture is thicker than regular lip glosses and thanks to it, staying power is increased. 
I forgot to add brow product to the picture, but I used ELF stuio brow kit in light (just the powdery part, because wax part is too dark for me). ELF please add translucent wax to those kits!
 Thank you for reading!

  1. Sul on väga ilus loomulik ilu ja loodan, et sa käidki tavaliselt nii nagu sa vasakul pool pildil oled. Ma igatahes käiks :)

  2. Grete- Aitäh! Ma ennast ise küll mingiks kaunitariks ei pea. Pigem ma käin nii ringi, sest ma olen hommikuti liiga laisk. Näo teen pähe ainult õhtul välja minnes. Talvel läheb asi natuke hullemaks- näonahk on tuhmim ja nagu teada ma solaariumis ei käi ja siiani on tundunud ka isepruunistavad tooted liigse mässamisena.

  3. Tulemus on väga kena ja loomulik. Ja pean nõustuma Gretega ilma meigita oled ka väga kena :)

  4. Väga ilus nägu ja väga ilus meik! Ma küll ei arva, et su põsed liiga roosad oleks saanud. Tõesti kaunis oled!

  5. Näed ka meigita väga hea välja - ilus nahk. Kas kasutasid ka silmameigi aluskreemi?
    Socialite ja Royal on ühed mu lemmikutest - mõnusat "mittemustad" suitsusilmatoonid, Trendy't vist proovinud pole - aga kõlab nagu midagi sellist, millele tuleb tonn kleepuvat kraami eelnevalt alla määrida. :D
    Minu jaoks on fair foundation talvel liiga tume - siis saan peitepuudrit üle näo kasutada - aga veidi häirib see roosakas alatoon - ma püüan oma naha roosasust alati pigem maha toonida ja mitte esile tõsta.

  6. Ohh teid, panete mu punastama veel. Suur aitäh! LiisK, alati kasutan aluskreeme, antud juhul kasutasin mineral eyelid primerit elfilt, aga vist unustasin märkida. Silmameik oli ilusti peal ka öösel koju jõudes ehk 14h hiljem ;)

  7. Mind häiris ka peitepuudri roosa alatoon- ok, silmaalustele vb sobib, kuigi kollakas toon oleks parem, aga punasele punnile roosat peale tundub pigem rõhutamise kui varjamisena.
