e.l.f. Haul 8: Reviews, Swatches, and First Impressions

If you love yourself some good makeup, allow me to encourage you to have a seat and stick around for my e.l.f. haul 8. I have been using most of these products for some time now, and let me tell you, they are nothing short of awesome. I am beyond excited to share my haul with you, complete with my reviews. I really got my hands on a great bunch of drugstore makeup products, and I know that you are going to like them too. Without further ado, let's get all swatchy.


e.l.f. Moisturizing Lipstick in Cheeky

The first product in my e.l.f. haul is yet another moisturizing lipstick. I love this somewhat coral-nude shade. The moisturizing lipsticks are great because they are smooth and the pigmentation is buildable. They are the perfect standard lipsticks.

e.l.f. Lip Lock Pencil

I am a huge fan of this product! It is a lip liner that you actually apply around the outside of your lips, not onto your lips directly. This product works the same as outlining a shape with a crayon, and then filling it in with marker while keeping everything inside the lines. The clear wax of the lip liner keeps any lip color from feathering out onto the skin around your lips. I especially love it for liquid lipstick. This is definitely a holy grail for me.

e.l.f. HD Undereye Setting Powder

It seems to me that this setting powder has many fans. For me, I just do not understand the hype. I do not think that it works better than any other setting powder that I own. That beings said, I still think it is nice to try out and have around. It is a loose powder, which I dispense into the lid before application.

e.l.f. Poreless Face Primer

I purchased this primer because I previously bought the green one and thought that the formula felt a lot like a poreless primer. I figured I would really like their actual poreless primer. I have to say, I have been really spoiled with various high-end poreless primer free samples. While this primer does not give that instant Photoshop look like the free samples I have, it is ok. It does have a little bit of a greasy residue feeling, but overall it does set onto the skin.

e.l.f. Hydrating Under Eye Primer

I am on the fence with this product. I feel as though it actually causes my undereye concealer to crease worse. I do think I need to try it out a bit more before fully deciding that I do not like it. I also wish the dispenser dispensed less- too much can definitely be a slippery situation.

e.l.f. Lock on Liner and Brow Cream in Medium Brown

This is my absolute favorite brow product out of all of the brow products that I own! I find myself reaching for it the most. The color is perfect for my brows. I have never used it as an eyeliner, but I think it would do fine. This product is great because it perfectly fills AND sets your brows all day. Normally I have to use at least two separate products to achieve that. It is very moist and creamy. 10 out of 10 do recommend!

e.l.f. Mineral Pearls in Skin Balancing

I just do not know how to feel about this product. Before I used it for the first time I was worried that it was going to make me look green. It did not, but it does provide somewhat of a glow. I really do not understand the purpose of this product. A powder alone cannot do full-on color correction, so I assume you should apply this all over after foundation. However, you do not have much need for color correction after foundation. If anyone knows a good use for this product, let me know, from one beauty junkie to another.

e.l.f. Complete Coverage Concealer in Light

This is a pretty cool concealer palette. It is tiny, perfect for travel. The concealers are very creamy. I actually use mine to do further concealing of blemishes after color correcting and foundation application. I use the provided brush to apply a small dab of concealer to the blemished area. I do not think any of the shades are light enough to be used as an undereye concealer, but it is great for actual concealing.

e.l.f. Cream Blush Palette in Soft

I am a huge fan of this blush palette! Cream products, especially blush, intimidate me. I am always afraid that they will appear crazy pigmented on my face, giving me a clown-like look. This palette has awesome pigmentation, yet does not look overdone on the face. You can actually tell that you are wearing blush, without looking like you went overboard. I apply mine with the e.l.f. stipple brush, but any stipple brush will do. The colors in this palette are gorgeous. I definitely want to pick up the darker palette.

e.l.f. Nude Rose Gold Eyeshadow Palette

I waited forever to get this palette! I have an obsession with nude eyeshadow, and I especially love pinks and roses. This palette is definitely not a dupe for Naked 3, but it is in the same color family. The shades are gorgeous and the pigmentation is decent. I would like to see a bit more pigmentation.

e.l.f. Prism Eyeshadow

The last two products in my e.l.f. haul are more Prism palettes. The Prim eyeshadows are extremely shimmery, so much so I like to say that you can use them as highlighter if you wish. I do think that there is a time and place for super shimmery eyeshadow looks, and these palettes are great. I have collected them all. The pigmentation is not too shabby with these.

I think I got some pretty good products and definite winners in this e.l.f. haul. My favorites are the brow cream and the lip lock pencil, but overall I am really impressed with everything! Do you use any of these products or want to try them out? Let me know in the comments. You can get these products right from e.l.f.'s website. Until next time, continue to let your true beauty shine.
