elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a review of the elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara – I purchased it in early January and have been testing it out. [info in italics taken from the elf Cosmetics website]

elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara

What is it? A mega volume mascara that helps your lashes look fuller, bolder and longer than ever.

Why we love?

  • Achieve mega volume lashes instantly
  • Volumizing mascara is formulated with intensely rich pigments for bolder than ever lashes
  • Flexible, silicone brush grips lashes from root to tip for insane volume

Volume that hits all the high notes! This formula’s intensely rich pigments easily coat lashes for a bigger and bolder look. The sleek flexible wand hugs every single lash with both vertical and horizontal bristles to amplify, define & add dimension.

This sounds like a perfect mascara for me since I prefer lots of VOLUME for my lashes. If you’ve been reading abrashattitude.com for awhile, you will know that I am super picky about mascara. I have long, stick-straight lashes that are quite light in colour considering my natural hair colour is dark brown. I use a lash curler and I need a mascara will hold a curl. My eyes are sensitive, and water easily so any mascara that I use must be smudge proof, and water resistant.

I have seven requirements for a mascara, and I’ll comment on each requirement and score each point. So how did the Lash It Loud Mascara score?

elf Cosmetics Lash It Loud Mascara

1. waterproof / water resistant +1 Not waterproof mascara, but held up well during cold weather eye watering for me!

2. smudge-proof +1

3. non-flaking / non-clumping +1

4. must be DARK black (not blackish, not brown black, and definitely not grey black) +1 Dark black!

5. volumizing +1/2 Ok volume, great length. I was hoping for mega volume.

6. must hold a curl +3/4 It holds a curl pretty well, wish it had better hold

7. non-irritating to my sensitive eyes +1 no itchy eyes!

Overall I would give this mascara a 6.25 out of 7 – which is pretty good! The brush shape works great for my inner and outer lashes. I prefer the volume that the Big Mood Waterproof Mascara gives my lashes, so I’m probably going to try the non-waterproof formula to see how it compares.

I love that elf Cosmetics is cruelty free, and vegan, and affordable!

Have you tried this mascara?

elf Cosmetics Hydrating Camo Concealer Review

elf Cosmetics Hydrating Camo Concealer

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

Today I have a review of the elf Cosmetics Hydrating Camo Concealer. I purchased it while I was in Nova Scotia in early October and have been using it ever since. [info in italics taken from the elf Cosmetics website]

elf Cosmetics Hydrating Camo Concealer

What is it: A long-lasting liquid concealer that provides crease-proof full coverage while hydrating your skin.

Why we love:

  • Full coverage concealer with a satin finish
  • All-day wear time
  • Large doe foot applicator
  • Great for normal, combination, and dry skin.
  • Our Shade Match Guarantee allows you to buy with confidence

Key Ingredients:

  • Sodium Hyaluronate – helps provide hydration by locking in moisture
  • Rose Flower Water – helps soothes skin with its anti-inflammatory properties
elf Cosmetics Hydrating Camo Concealer

Nothing to see here—this full-coverage liquid concealer covers up imperfections and under-eye circles while delivering a boost of hydration to your skin. The lightweight, workable formula corrects and perfects without creasing or flaking for a smooth, satin finish that lasts all day (no touch-ups needed). Find your match with a wide selection of 25 shades.

elf Cosmetics Hydrating Camo Concealer

I have the shade Fair Rose (fair with pink undertones) – one of the lightest shades in the range – which is a great shade match for me. I decided to get this concealer as I wanted one that would not dry out my skin, especially with the cooler wether approaching. it applies and blends easily with fingers, a brush, or a sponge – depending on your personal preference. I love that this drugstore brand has 25 shades in this concealer. It is lightweight, and the coverage is great. I tend to apply it on the sheer side, as I just use it to camouflage any pinkness in my cheeks when I’m not wearing foundation, but it is a full coverage concealer if you don’t sheer it out. It wears all day, and thus far plays nicely with my serums, moisturizers and sunscreen.

Do you have a favourite concealer?

e.l.f. Cosmetics Wow Brow Tinted Brow Gel Review

elf Cosmetics Wow Brow Tinted Brow Gel

Hello, hello – welcome to / welcome back to A Brash Attitude!

elf Cosmetics Wow Brow Tinted Brow Gel

Today I’m reviewing the e.l.f. Cosmetics Wow Tinted Brow Gel. I purchased it a few weeks ago, and have been wearing it daily ever since. [info in italics taken from the e.l.f. Cosmetics website]

elf Cosmetics Wow Brow Tinted Brow Gel

What is it? A buildable, fiber-infused tinted brow gel that makes your natural brows look fuller.

Why we love:

  • Buildable wax-gel formula with brush
  • Gives you full, voluminous-looking brows
  • Available in 5 easy-match shades

Natural eyebrows that wow! This buildable wax-gel hybrid is enriched with Kaolin Clay and hair-like fibers that adhere to and enhance your brows. Brush and shape the tinted gel into place and your brows will immediately appear voluminous, fuller, and naturally filled in. Can be used on its own or as a topcoat over brow powder or pencil.

elf Cosmetics Wow Brow Tinted Brow Gel

This is a fantastic tinted brow gel – it looks great on its own, or paired with an eye pencil for a more defined and dramatic look. I chose the shade Deep Brown and I think that it is a perfect match for me as I prefer my browns to be dark (but not black). It adds volume and control but doesn’t make my brows look or feel “crunchy”. The small spoolie brush makes it easy to apply to the tails of my brows (where I need it the most).

elf Cosmetics Wow Brow Tinted Brow Gel

A great budget friendly brow option in my opinion.

  • Hold the bottle at arm’s length and spray a light layer of mist over your makeup with eyes closed.
  • Let the formula dry naturally or blot with a tissue to help speed dry.

This is a nice setting spray, it feels refreshing and helps keep your makeup from disappearing / fading off of your face.

It does have a few ingredients that I had to look up because I wasn’t quite sure what they were.

elf is cruelty free and vegan, so they’re a good budget friendly brand.
