My Top 10 Must-Have Products from E.l.f Cosmetics

Hello everyone, today I wanted to tell you how much I love this very cheap brand called E.L.F.
For those makeup addicted like me, this is certainly a brand worth checking out...
I ordered from E.L.F website plenty of time and I have more than one product of any product on their website, so I know what I'm talking about.
Among the great thing about this brand, there is the worldwide shipping...How amazing is that?
I live in Europe so I order on E.l.f Uk website, but if you are in America, you can order HERE.

These are my top 10 must have things from E.l.f:

1- E.l.f Mineral Booster: this product is amazing...I think this is my favourite among the products. It is a sheer powder and it absors oil on your skin and gives you a photo finishing touch, like the website says. My skin feel smoother everytime I use this to set my makeup. I use it with Elf studio line Kabuki Brush.

2- E.l.f Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Luminance: this product is always sold out for a reason...It is AMAZING! The Luminance powder is the perfect face T-zone highlighter and can also be used for browbone highlighter.

3- E.l.f Mineral Eyeshadow in Natural: this is my favourite one, and I have almost all of their shades. Natural is a skintone color, it is very shimmery and looks almost gold under certain lights. I usually apply it wet, but it looks good anyway.

4- E.l.f Mineral Lipstick in Runway Pink: this is one of their new shades. It is a perfect nude pink lipstick that goes well with any makeup look, especially with smokey eyes. I love the formula of this lipstick, I have five of them. They feel soft and moisturizing on the lips.

5- E.l.f Eyelid Primer: this is a primer that suprised me...really? It is so cheap I thought it was rubbish, but it is awesome. I put this on my eyelid before applying my eyeshadow, and my makeup lasts all day! O_O I have already a back up of this! I have the high brands primers, like Urban Decay Primer potion and Mac Paint Pot, but I'm not kidding, this does almost the same job. So If you are looking for a cheap but good primer this is perfect for you.

6- E.l.f Mineral Eye liner pen in BLACK: I use this everyday. It is black enough, precise, creamy and It is good on your upper lashes and on the waterline. Love it.

7- E.l.f Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder: this palette has a coral glittery blush and a matte bronzer. I use this everyday too. The matte bronzer is an amazing contour for your cheeks and the blush is really pretty too. It appears to be glittery but on your cheeks they do not show, which is good cause we don't want glitter all over our face.

8- E.l.f Studio Lip Balm SPF 15: This is a wonderful lip balm. It is highly moisturizing and If you put this under your lipstick, it has a lip gloss effect! O_O It also protects you from the sun, cause it has SPF 15. It has a minty flavour.

9- E.l.f Studio Eyelash Curler: It is great! It curls your lashes wonderfully and it is easy to use.

10- E.l.f Eyeshow Compacts: This is a quad that you can customize with eyeshadow, blush and lip colors. I have all the eyeshadows and three compacts to store them. My favourite colors are: Sage (a wonderful gold/green), Mocha (a bronze color), Moondust (taupe color) and Ivory (a white shimmery highlighter shade).

I hope that was helpful. These are my top 10 item from E.l.f, but I like almost every product.
