Here’s an update on the elf Acne Fighting Foundation. I’ve done a review on this foundation before in the past. Check it out below:
Review: elf Acne Fighting Foundation
I’ve used the elf Acne Fighting Foundation for less than 7 days now. Somewhere around there. I still hate the coloring of the foundation. It’s definitely orange. Using my BB Cream on top didn’t help much. My skin looked freaking orange. YUCK! ??Yeah, the orange-tinge it gave my skin was cringey too. I don’t think anyone wants to look like an oompa loompa or look like they have a bad tan. lol.
As for breakouts, did it break me out?
This is an interesting question. The purpose of elf Acne Fighting Foundation is to help fight acne (what the foundation is called). With this foundation, I noticed tiny little clogged, filled in pores after using it. I developed a new irritated pimple on my jawline too. I really do think it could be the amount of silicones in this product that my skin doesn’t like. It seems like it’s trapping oil in my pores and causing me skin issues like acne. I love how silicones make my skin look but not when it’s making me break out in acne. So if you have acne-prone skin, be aware of that. Just because it’s made for ‘acne’, doesn’t mean it’ll work for you. I had to stop using this foundation ASAP.
I wouldn’t recommend this foundation to acne-prone skin people. I won’t buy it again due to the reasons above. I did make an update on my makeup routine. <<< Just eliminate the elf Acne Fighting Foundation from my routine. ?
P.S. elf is a vegan and cruelty-free brand. 🙂
Updated Review: elf Mattifying Mask with French Green Clay
I did a couple of reviews on the elf Mattifying Mask with French Green Clay. I decided to use this face mask (to use it all up). I haven’t touched it in a while. This was my experience with it.
I’ve been using this face mask out of convenience. I don’t have to mix it like my Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay. That was a really bad idea. I didn’t think this face mask would break me out, but it did. I started to noticing clogged pores in the most random places. I even developed pustules. So, this mask is a no-go if you have acne-prone skin. I’m so disappointed. My skin was clear. But, at least I know what caused my skin to break out. I hope recovery is going to be fast and quick. Out this face mask goes!

Review: elf Skincare & Makeup Part 2
My review on elf Skincare & Makeup from my HUGE elf Makeup & Skincare Haul Part 2 ~~ ENJOY! ?
1. elf Makeup Remover Balm
This is my second makeup remover balm. The first one I tried is Physician’s Formula The Perfect Matcha 3-in-1 Melting Cleansing Balm. Between the two, Physician’s Formula is SO MUCH better! I didn’t like the elf Makeup Remover Balm at all. It’s not as elegant feeling. It also smells very bad. I still have it and haven’t used much of it. It’s just sitting there. I will try my best to use it up, but it’ll take some time. I wouldn’t recommend this makeup remover balm to anyone.
Would I buy again? NO.
2. elf Precision Liquid Eyeliner in Black
At first, I liked elf Precision Liquid Eyeliner. As I continued to use it, it’s meh. I mean, it looks good when first applied. The problem with this liquid eyeliner is that it peels off. It doesn’t last throughout the day. That’s a huge issue for me because I want my makeup to stay on when applied once, especially liquid eyeliner.
Would I buy again? Probably not.
3. elf Color Correcting Stick, Dark Circles
I did review on elf concealers already. GO HERE. My thoughts are still the same about this concealer. I didn’t like it. Next!
Would I buy again? Nah.
4. elf Liquid Matte Lipstick
This is a liquid matte lipstick. I’m not too big on matte lip products. They dry my lips out. And, I didn’t like this color that much (Tea Rose). It’s not for me. It doesn’t match my complexion color. I will not purchase this shade or any other shades ever again (dries my lips out). I wasn’t a big fan of it.
Would I buy again? No.

Review: elf Skincare & Makeup Part 1
Here are my thoughts on elf skincare and makeup products I purchased during the summer (part 1). Are they worth it? Well, read on to find out! 🙂
HUGE elf Makeup & Skincare Haul Part 1
1. elf Makeup Remover Cleansing Clothes – 2 Pack
I like these, but I don’t love them. I think they are a little too moist, and that makes it harder to have a nice grip on the skin. I do like the fact that they are super cheap! I think they are worth the buy if you’re looking for affordable cleansing clothes. It’s a cleansing cloth afterall. I don’t think it’s necessary to spend a fortune on them. They don’t stay on the skin for an extended amount of time anyways.
Would I buy again? Yes.
2. elf Total Face Sponge
At first, I felt out of place using a sponge to apply my foundation. It’s because I’m so used to using my hands and fingers. The more I used this sponge to apply my makeup, the more I enjoyed it. It works. I haven’t used it ‘wet’. Only ‘dry’. I hardly ever apply my makeup with wet sponges or brushes. It feels weird on the skin. I liked this sponge.
Would I buy again? Even though I liked it, I still prefer to use my hands or a brush when applying foundation. I wouldn’t purchase it again for that reason. If you like using sponges, this is a good choice.
3. elf Contour Palette
I was searching for a contour palette, so I purchased this one. The colors in the palette looked good. I thought it would work, but the formula didn’t work for my skin type. It clogged my pores. If you don’t have skin that clogs easily, this could work for you. Me, no. I’ll pass.
Would I buy again? No, because it’s not suitable for my skin type.
4. elf Makeup Mist & Set
I’ve never tried elf makeup setting sprays before. This was the first one I bought from elf cosmetics. Honestly, I wasn’t impressed with this makeup setting spray. The spray applicator makes the product come out uneven. It’s messy. The formula shifted my makeup too. It didn’t ‘set’ my makeup. Don’t buy this spray.
Would I buy again? NO.
5. elf Brow Pencil in Neutral Brown
I’m glad I tried this eyebrow pencil out. Did I like it? No. The color was faint and rubbed off easily. I eventually stopped using it. It didn’t make my eyebrows look natural and pretty.
Would I buy again? No.
6. elf HD Lifting Concealer in Fair
What’s great about the elf HD Lifting Concealer is the texture and consistency of it. It’s thick and soft. I really love how it blends into my skin. It feels very elegant for a concealer that only costs $4. Coverage is good, but it does not stay in place. I have the one in fair, and it’s a tad dark to be considered a fair shade. The price is good for the quality, but I want a concealer that has good consistency/texture, that matches my complexion better, and stays in place throughout the day.
Would I buy again? I’m torn because it’s not that bad, but I will most likely not purchase it again.
I did do a review on elf concealers here. Feel free to check it out! It seems like my thoughts have changed on the elf HD Lifting Concealer. 😛

Review: elf Concealers
Here’s a review on elf concealers.
- elf HD Lifting Concealer
- elf Flawless Color Correcting Pen
- elf Color Correcting Stick
Let’s start of with the elf HD Lifting Concealer.
This is my favorite concealer out of the three. It is thick and provides coverage. It’s great underneath the eyes and concealing flaws. It’s great for the price. The only gripe with this concealer is that the color isn’t truly fair. It’s more of a light to medium shade. I think I would purhcase this again due to its consistency, and it does provide good coverage. The product feels very soft and lightweight on the skin.
This isn’t a true concealer. It’s a ‘color correcting’ pen. It’s supposed to brighten the skin up. I didn’t see the point to this product. Why not just use a concealer that is actually a concealer. I won’t buy this again. Next!
This is a color correcting stick for dark under eye circles. The shade of this product is orange. The orange color helps to neutralize the bluish tones. This may work for some people, but it didn’t work for me. Maybe it’s because my dark under eye circles are just terrible. I don’t think I would purchase this again. The orange color was very difficult to blend into my skin even with regular concealer on top. It simply didn’t work. If you look at the first photo, the product became loose and fell out. haha.
