Well as I told you before I ordered 48 products from e.l.f, and now I have tested a lot of them.
First and foremost, the three brushes I bought were totally crap. The first thing I did was to wash them, they smelled really bad. When I washed them the water turned red.
Total Face Brush looses a lot of hair all the time, and the "hair" poke my skin, it does not feel nice at all. This gets a 1/10.
The Bronzing Brush is okay, but cannot be compared to the wonderful contour brush from M.A.C. Again, the smell is really bad. This brush will get a 3/10
The Defining Eye Brush is the best out of the three I have tested. It wasn`t red, and didn`t smell all that bad. For my taste the bristles are to long to be a defining brush, but to blend the outer V of the eye it`s good. This one get`s a 4 /10

I have also tested the e.l.f mineral infused face primer for about a week now. This does not work for me at all. I have dry skin, and this makes my face look amazing straight away, but after a couple of hours dry patches start to appear on my skin (primer is made to prep the skin and to make the makeup stay on flawlessly on your skin longer) It contains Silicone, Phenoxyethanol wich is restricted in Japan because of it`s sideeffects and 3 other Parabens. For people with sensitive skin/ problem skin, stay away from this product! Very funny to put in the word Mineral to make it sound better. This product gets 3/10
Other than that I must say that the Duo Eyeshadows get a 7/10. They are not to powdery so they are easy to apply. Always test the product on your hand before applying it on your eyelid, just to check the pigmentation. Some of the colors have a lot of pigments and other look totally different on your eye than in the package. If you prime your eye and apply a good baseshadow the e.l.f eyeshadows will last for a really long time.
My best advise is to buy the crazy colors that you almost never use on e.l.f but always invest in a good base color and the colors you use every day. Most of the e.l.f products contains a lot of mineral Oil wich clog your pores and can lead to acne.
Hugs and kisses
