ELF HITS & MISSES | essentials, mineral, studio !


I decided to re-post an updated version of ELF hits and misses products. 
I've tried so many ELF products and I think this is one of the most helpful posts I could ever post. 
I decided to divide products into 3 categories. 
HITS - great products, worth-getting
MEHS - Don't love them, but they're decent, so they're still useable
MISSES - Products that aren't worth getting, practically useless, or aren't worth trying to use up

When putting products into categories I also wanted to think about durability and long-term use. If a product's going to last a week, then it's not good enough to be a hit. 

I also listed the shades that fit the category, because at times I liked one shade but not the other.
 I included some extra information that I thought you should know in the brackets.
