Review: e.l.f. Cosmetics

I recently received my order from e.l.f. This was my second time ordering from them and I was satisfied with most of my purchases.
I bought:
- 4 mineral eye shadows
- 2 facial whips; an additional one was sent as a gift
- 1 lipstick
- 2 mineral lip glosses
- 1 waterproof eyeliner pen

Mineral Eye Shadows
I already had 2 from my previous purchase and loved them so much to order more. They are very comparable to bare minerals eye shadows. The sparkle in these are amazing as well as the pigmentation. When used with a primer or base they last forever.
L to R: Royal, Glamorous, Sassy, Caffeinated, Confident, Celebrity

Facial Whips
These can be used to highlight your face, eyes, or even lips. I was very excited to try these but sadly I was left disappointed. First of all, they smell really odd, almost like a sweat odor...not very pleasant. Second, they are sticky and take a while to fully dry. And finally they don't show up to well, at least on my skin they didn't. Everyone always talks to highly of these but I don't see what the hype is all about. I was not pleased.

L to R: Camilia, Lilac Petal, Toasted

Lipstick & Lipgloss 

This lipstick is from their essential collection ($1). I am very pleased with this. The color payoff is very nice. The formula is a little on the dry side but it has a pretty creamy consistency, although I wish it was a little creamier. It has a nice fruity smell. The pigmentation is pretty good as well. I only purchased one so I don't have anything to compare it to. The color I got, Seductive, doesn't have any shimmer or glitter.
I love these lip glosses! The colors that I purchased are so pretty. The pigmentation on these is really good and the formula isn't very sticky. It comes with a doe foot applicator which makes it easy for applying. I wish they lasted a little longer but I got what I paid for, $3 each. Daring has gold glitter. Bare doesn't have any shimmer or glitter.

L to R: Seductive, Daring, Bare

Eye Liner
I've never tried an eyeliner pen before but I absolutely love this one. It has a very fine tip so the line thickness is all up to you. Having eyeliner in a pen form makes it so much easier to apply close to your lash line as well as fixing any bumpy lines. You can't beat the price either at only $1! I believe these are also sold in store so you don't have to pay for shipping if this is all you want. I purchased the black eyeliner.
