I received the e.l.f. voxbox from Influenster, and wanted to share what I received in this box with you.
I've always been on the fence about e.l.f, because I find their products have been hit and miss, but I actually like most of the products in this box.

These are the five products in the box.
e.l.f. Hydrating Bubble Mask

I'm very picky about skincare. We all know this by now. However, I've never used a bubble mask before, so I couldn't wait to try it.

I really like the packaging because you just press the top down and the product dispenses through the hole in the top. This is extremely sanitary and keeps the product from being exposed to oxygen.

That's what it looks like when it starts bubbling up. It actually does a great job. After removing the mask, my skin felt smooth and clean, but not dry. My skin looked hydrated and healthy.
e.l.f. Mineral Infused Primer

The mineral infused primer is meant to combat oil, flaky skin, enlarged pores and fine lines.
This is a very slick, silicone primer. I've used this a few times, and I don't like the way it feels and this is solely because I am a silicone primer hater. This works the same as any other silicone based primer, honestly, I cannot tell a difference between this one and the high end versions, I'm just a snob and I hate the way it feels.
e.l.f. Mint Lip Exfoliator

I really like the packaging on this. I get annoyed with the type in the jars, because I hate scooping it out. I like how this is in the shape of a lipstick bullet.

I also like that it's infused with oils, such as Vitamin E, Avocado, Grape, Jojoba and Shea Butter, so it's also conditioning my lips when I use it.
e.l.f. Matte Lip Color

The e.l.f. Matte Lip Colors aren't something that's new to me, because I've used them in the past and really like them. This color is new to me, though and I adore it. This shade is Wine.
elf lip stick wine
This is very matte, but still creamy enough to be easy to apply. It lasts a very long time.
It can be drying, but that's to be expected from such a matte lip color.
e.l.f. Baked Duo
e.l.f. Baked Duo

I was really the most skeptical of this, simply because just by glancing at it, those powders look DRY.
I assumed there was no way that would have any pigment. It looked plastic. I'm not trying to be mean, but just from looking at it, it didn't look like it would be any good, in my opinion.
e.l.f. Baked Duo swatches

But, I was wrong. This ended up being my favorite thing. This is a gorgeous highlight, and it's very reflective and pretty. It was hard to catch it on camera, and it's more intense in person. It can be applied naturally, or more intensely.
I misjudged this horribly, and it happens sometimes. Sometimes, it's really not so simple as just looking at makeup and making a snap decision of whether it's going to work or not. So, if you're after an affordable, cruelty free highlight, this one is $8. I think it's gorgeous.
So, that's my e.l.f. Voxbox. What's your favorite e.l.f. product? 
I think I'm ready to give them another shot now, since I haven't purchased anything from them in a few years.
Thanks for reading!

  1. Thank you, found your blog on Google+ and this post was really helpful! I've used the Elizaveca bubble clay mask, but I didn't know Elf had a bubble mask. Will have to try!

  3. I agree on the hit and miss aspect of E.L.F. products. I love their clear mascara/brow gel and some of their brushes (for nails). The mask sounds super cool...plus bubbles!! LOL

  6. The mint lip exfoliator is great! I have their normal one that looks like sand in a cream base when you twist it up. This is much more pleasing to the eye.
