Review: e.l.f. Eye Products

Hey everyone!

So in my recent haul, which you can see here, I picked up some of the e.l.f. (eyes lips face) cosmetics to try out while I was at target.  I'd heard of the $1.00 makeup brand before, but never tried it.  So, I decided to give it a whirl.  The first things I'm going to be reviewing are three eyeshadow quads I got, each $1.00.

"Punk Funk" 
Contains: one sparkly hot pink, one deep purple, a cobalt blue and a white-cream color for a highlight.  The purple and blue in this quad are a little messy.  They are pretty pigmented colors though.  The pink color I really love! It has glitter in it, and not just shimmer, like chunky glitter.  But, for a crazy colorful look, I think it would be great!  

"Day 2 Night"
This is the PERFECT neutral eye quad for beginners. It has colors that are great for everyday, like the highlight color and the light brown, then it has two darker colors, the dark brown and dark charcoal colors, which are perfect for a quick transition to night.

"Silver Lining"
This quad was my favorite! It has a very light rosy pink, a deep gray/silver color, a plummy purple and a highlight color.  I loved this quad, I even wore it out last night just to try it!  The colors are more pigmented than you would expect for only $1, and over a base they are even better!  I really enjoyed this quad and will probably be using it in the future!

Good: for the price these are very nice quality.  I would definitely recommend these for younger girls, beginners or simply any beauty lover on a budget.  

Bad: when you blend the colors on your eye, they fade like crazy! And, as far as I know, you can only get them at Target, so if you're not a big online shopper they may be hard to get your hands on.

Another Note: Last night I wore the Silver Lining quad on my eyes out to dinner and while I was pleasantly surprised with how it looked, when I woke up this morning I had a big swollen eye. Now, I'm not blaming the e.l.f. product, I'm just wondering if this has happened to anyone else or if you know why it may have happened?? Please comment and let me know! :)

Overall, I would recommend these, especially since they are so inexpensive.  The quality obviously isn't that of a department store brand, but for someone just looking for some inexpensive but good quality products, this is the way to go!

Hope you enjoyed!

  1. I bought the entire line online at their site. The large pallette of 150 shadows is terrible, it stinks and has a strong chemical smell. I asked them to send me another and they sent a total of 3 no charge but each was worse then the last. When you open it the factory chemicals smell is so strong it makes me sick. The other products, shadows, brushes, bronzers, blush, I really like. But I am strictly cruelty free with my beauty products and they state on the package they are cruelty free and made in USA I am also particular and only buy prodcuts made in USA as studies show prodcuts from other countries are full of chemicals that are causing Americans to get cancers and other health problems. So I called them and sure enough, everything is made in China. I told them that was unacceptable. While its affordable for those of us on a budget, its not good to use because it has a lot of chemicals in it. I do like the shadow quads but its not worth it. Their products are really cheap for a reason, they are made cheap at a low quality Chinese factory.

  2. I would also avoid the lip glosses and lipstick. While the colors are great, they taste like chemicals and leave a horrible taste on your lips. They also do not last and taste like a plastic.


Thank you all so much for coming to check out my blog! I read every one of your comments, and I can't wait to hear from you! If you have any other questions or requests or anything, feel free to email me at ! :)
