I believe most of my readers who followed my look of the day posts would have found out my love for elf cosmetics, and noticed the number of elf items that I own.

***WARNING: Graphics-heavy and Lengthy entry***

Finally! After much struggling and juggling between work, life and blogging commitments, this article is born!

I've tried my best to share my reviews on all the products I own and if I missed out anything about the products, leave a comment below and I shall respond to you as soon as I can.

Some general FAQ targeted at Singapore (maybe asia too) audience:

Q: What does elf stands for?
A: elf is eyeslipsface in short.

Q: Where/How to get elf products? Their website indicates they dont ship internationally..
A: I first laid my hands on them via Gmarket/Qoo10 sellers. Then I got my friend in states to help me out with my orders. I tried using Vpost once to ship the elf orders too. 
In terms of payment methods and reliability, I will reccomend getting it from local sellers via Gmarket/Qoo10 as theres 2 whom I know organizes fleas regularly. 

List of local sellers with links to product page below:

  Smoochiezz Website | Facebook Page | Smoochiezz Qoo10.Gmarket Shop

   Facebook Page | La Diamonte on Qoo10.Gmarket  

Q: What do you mean by Essential / Studio / Mineral range? Whats the difference between these?
A: Essential range is their first batch of product launched ranging from an amazing price of USD1.00 to USD5.00 (SGD3.80 to SGD8.00)

Studio range products were then launched to provide even better quality cosmetics and makeup tools at an affordable price equivalent or lesser than drugstore brands.

Mineral range features all MINERAL ONLY ingredients used and tools made for mineral makeup application.

Q: Any guideline on their pricing?
A: refer to their website here for US rates. For locals, fret not, below is a list of their price range basing on the 3 lines of products which might not correspond to its value in USD. My price range is based on products I've purchased from local sellers.

Single Items
Essential Range: USD 1-5 / SGD 3.90-15
Studio & Mineral Range: USD 3-8 / SGD 6-25

Yea.. I know it seems that at the moment this post is up there are lots of pictures yet inserted.. ah well.. I need time to upload them..
Also, the reviews aren't all up too coz I had begun the "review exercise" according to product types, and honestly, I have yet finished the first series which meant for MASCARAS!!
Not to forget that I have only a few of the mascara type products from elf.. so... heh heh~

Anyway, do come back now and then to check on the products shared in this post as I will definitely get it updated with Photos, Review links and definitely having Swatches posted up too!!
