Suave Dry Shampoo

Price I purchased it for: $2.74

I was in Target and I saw this dry shampoo and I decided to purchase it for two reasons:
1. It is a raved product on YouTube
2. It is inexpensive
Unfortunately, this product does not get rid of the oil. I have no idea why it is highly talked about and how it receives good reviews. It smells good, but it does not fulfill its purpose. I will not repurchase this nor do I recommend it.
I give this product 1 out of 5 stars. 1 star for the smell.

More e.l.f reviews

Swatches will come later when I get the chance to take pictures and upload.

e.l.f. Studio Endless Eyes Pro Eyeshadow Palette – Limited Edition

Price: $10
This palette contains 100 eye shadows. This product has poor pigmentation. Some colors are better than others. I would recommend this product toward younger make up users such as middle school and possibly early high school. Fall out is a minimum and its pretty fine in texture. It is easy to blend, but the color payoff just doesn't do it justice. It's a good addition to you collection if you are a beginner. However, for those who are not beginners, will be dissatisfied and disappointed about this product. Note to make up beginners, there are other eye shadows from the website and drug stores that are much better than this particular palette.
I rate this 2.5 out of 5 stars.

e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm SPF 15

Price: $3
This is a pretty raved product on YouTube. The color payoff is good considering it's a lip balm. Texture is thin and not sticky. Moisturizing and contains Vitamin A&E and SPF 15. The only downside is the packaging. Just like their cream liners, the top is hard to screw on properly preventing the product from drying out. Another downside to the packaging is that its hard to scoop out the product. I hate getting lip balm in my nails, but its hard to avoid with this packaging. I recommend using a lip brush with this product.
I rate this 4 out of 5 stars.

e.l.f. Studio Angled Contour Brush

Price: $3
This brush is amazing. I absolutely love love love <3 it. Its great for contouring the outer V and blending as well. Suitable for many eye shapes. I have small asian eyelid folds it works great. Soft (like all of e.l.f's studio brushes) and dense; a brush that does not shed. 
I rate this 5 out 5 stars.

e.l.f. Studio Angled Eyeliner Brush

Price: $3
This eyeliner brush is very good at precise lining. Great for the inner lids and every day eyeliner wear. It takes patience if you want to use this liner for a thick dramatic eye line. Very thin hair and easy to clean. I would definitely recommend this product.
I rate this 4.5 out of 5 stars.

e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color

Price: $3
This purchase was very satisfying. These lip colors have Vitamin A, C & E. Comes with four colors. They are very creamy and the color pay off is very good. Lasting power with drinking and eating was about 2hrs. Lasting power without drinking or eating was about 4hrs. Not the best in lasting power. Definitely makes your lips look matte; therefore it serves the purpose of the product. Like any other matte lip products, it can be drying on your lips over time so make sure lips are completely moisturized before using this product.
I rate this 4.5 out of 5 stars.
