ELF - Pink Lemonade Review

Blogging can sometimes cause you to fuss over 'new' products and make you forget about existing ones.

One of my 'must have' make up items is ELF's (Eyes Lips Face) all over color stick in 'Pink Lemonade'. I use this very often when I need to look 'fresh faced' and realised I hadn't blogged about it. I first purchased this over a year ago when I saw OxfordJasmine use this in a few tutorials.



It's a pigmented cream product that can be used as a blush, highlighter, illuminator, e/s or lip colour. The texture is smooth, creamy but not greasy at all. It dries matte with a sheen. If you close your eyes and feel the product, it just feels like skin, it's undetectable. The packaging is practical, but not very exciting which is what you should expect with Elf. The colour is a soft, cool toned rosey pink with shimmer. I have had no problems with this fading, for me it lasts all day.



Below you can see the silverish sheen.


This is what it looks like swatched...


Here's what it looks like blended.


I mainly use mine as blush on my cheeks when I need to look awake which this product certainly achieves. It will work well for even the lightest and darkest skin tones, as it's controllable and pigmented enough. I have also tried this in the shade 'Toasted' but it did nothing for me. I have tried several other items from Elf but honestly nothing has really stood out for me, they just seem 'blah' but this product is definitely worth trying.

Price: £1.50 (GBP) Visit ELF for more information.

What's your favourite ELF product?

I would love to try this shade stick! I went and watched a few of Lisa's videos when you posted about her being on youtube the other day and she used it one of her demos- it looks so pretty with the silver sheen in it.

I love the Elf Shimmering Facial Whip in Pink Lemonade! I like this better than the stick since for me, it blends a bit easier. I usually mix a bit of the whip with a bit of inexpensive liquid foundation to create a creamy blush! I get the most awesome glow like that. I do love the All Over Color Stick in the color Toasted. I use it on my eyelids as a sticky base ;)

Kate Gene said...

I haven't actually tried any E. L. F. products, believe it or not! I think I'm the last girl in the world to purchase anything from them!

That color looks really pretty and dewy against your skin. I love it! I don't usually like using cream blushes, but this one looks awesome!

Thanks for sharing!

I love Pink Lemonade and I reach for it constantly! I think you'd also like the new Spotlight shade, it has an amazing luminosity!
