    Trim Salon Board

    doesn't last

    I have a 180/180 grit Zebra salon board, it did a good job when it was brand new. Nice size, shape and thickness, but it doesn't last at all. The sandpaper gets worn out super fast and gets ripped off the base. Lasted me maybe 2-3 weeks, and I'm not a very heavy use, and my nails are natural. I'll try a different brand next time, would be good to have a more durable nail file.

  • E.L.F. Studio Cream Eyeshadow

    This eyeshadow isn't terrible, and stays on pretty well, but it is not very pigmented, is waaay too glittery/shimmery, and not in a pretty way, looks more like you have chunks of glittery stuff on your eyelids. The biggest minus for me was the texture- not very creamy, sort of on a dry side even after I tried melting it a bit on the back on my hand, so applying it smoothly is not an easy task. The packaging looks pretty, and again there is a but- it's unnecessarily bulky, and the product itself is put in the jar in such a way that it is extremely hard to get to. If you have slightly longer nails, forget about just using your fingertips. I don't think I'll buy it again- not elf's best product. if you want an inexpensive creamy eyeshadow, better get their mousse-like long-lasting lustrous eyeshadow- that one is a 10-star in all aspects.

  • E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick
    9.0

    E.L.F. All Over Cover Stick

    Great for the price.

    I like this concealer. Of course, there are better ones out there, but given the price and the amount you get, this is great. It has pretty good coverage, and it is fairly buildable. Just be sure to melt it a bit with your fingertips or on the back of your hand, so it goes on more smoothly. The packaging is nice and sturdy, doesn't feel cheap. The top is on pretty tight- I like to throw this one in my purse in case i need to cover something up, and never had any accidents. I'm only taking one star off, cause the smell is a bit odd- I've noticed lots of elf products have that smell- chemical orange of some sort. But it's not unbearable, and doesn't last. I can recommend this one, and will probably buy it again once I'm done with the one I have.

  • E.L.F. Mineral Mineral Lipstick

    I got this lipstick in natural nymph, and found it to be absolutely horrible. It looks like a concealer, not a nude color, I don't know a person that color could look good on, being so chalky and too light. The texture is very odd too, it is thick, and doesn't go on smooth no matter what- blotchy and uneven. I tried combining it with chapstick, lipgloss, applying just a little bit- nothing helped, it still looked ugly and uneven. I don't know if other colors are of better quality, but definitely stay away from this one. Can buy something much better for the same price or less. Hey, even their essential lipsticks are MUCH MUCH better and prettier. I'm only giving these stars for packaging.

  • E.L.F. Smudge Eye Brush

    This brush is not bad. I have lots of elf brushes, and like most of them, this is one of the newer ones, and I feel like the quality has gone down. The brush is not terrible, but is sort of scratchy- some of the bristles are ticker and are more rough than others. Also it sheds a bit. I still give it 7 stars, cause it was just a dollar, but won't repurchase.

  • E.L.F. Blending Eye Brush

    I like most of ELF's brushes. This one is nice and soft, it doesn't shed, or fall apart in any other way. The only thing I'm not crazy about is that it feels a little big, but that's a matter of personal preference. Great product for just 1$! Update: got another one recently, and it is significantly smaller, the bristles are shorter, and some are pretty scratchy. Also, it is shedding... the quality got much worse in just a little over a year. Hope the company starts paying attention to quality more again...

  • E.L.F. Essential Super Glossy Lip Shine

    I got this gloss in Angel- the clear one, as turned out with some glittery/shimmery particles. You get quite a bit of gloss for 1$, and it smells ok (this particular one smells like grapes), tastes pretty sweet too. The glittery thingies aren't too noticeable, so that's good too. And the gloss isn't too sticky. What I didn't like is that the gloss is way too thick, and if applied over a lipstick, everything turns into quite a bit of a mess. Once it melts onto lips it is more bearable, but that takes time. I don't know it it's just the clear gloss that's so thick, but I'm not sure I'll dare to try other shades now. Other than that, the packaging is good- no sponges or brushes that pick up what-not from your lips and outside environment.

  • E.L.F. Mineral Moisturizing Lip Tint SPF 8

    This tinted moisturizer is ok, but I wouldn't buy it again. First of all the package is really tiny, there's not much product there at all. I know it's inexpensive, but even for 3$ it's too little. Another thing I didn't like was the texture, looking at pictures and descriptions I expected this to be more sheer and matte (as in no shimmer or glitter), but this product turned out to be rather thick and it does have some shimmer in it. Not terrible, but not something I'll consider buying again.

  • L'Oreal Paris Voluminous Mascara Carbon Black

    I love, love, love this mascara! It is absolutely amazing. The color is nice intense black, which is not very common for drugstore mascaras. It makes lashes full, soft, and long. It almost seems like you're wearing false lashes (in a good way). I have been a fan of original Voluminous mascaras, but this is by far my favorite. I love the full brush, I actually bent it to have a curved brush, just because I find it creates the best look on my eye. The formula is quite creamy (not for fans of super-thin mascaras), but it is very easy to apply, doesn't smudge or flake throughout the day, and I had a chance to test it in pretty much all weather conditions. The lashes stay full and pretty. For best results I zig-zag the brush at the base a couple of times, and then run the brush through the entire length 2-3 times too, so that the tips of lashes look natural. You can totally layer this mascara without getting any clumps or lashes glued together, no additional tools needed. Just make sure not to wait for the first layer to dry, cause if it is dry, I suspect, it might clump a bit, and might look thick on the tips. The packaging is standard for voluminous mascaras- nice plain tube, nice brush, everything made well. The price is amazing- you get this unbelievable mascara for a very reasonable price, and the bonus is super full, soft, gorgeous lashes. I have used a bunch of these already, and will keep buying this mascara. Thanks L'Oreal, please don't discontinue this great product!

  • N.Y.C. New York Color Smooth Skin Liquid Makeup

    This foundation doesn't blend well, makes it obvious that you're wearing foundation, and just doesn't feel good. THe color is kind of strange, and I don't like this type of packaging. Will not repurchase.
