I recently had the opportunity to try out the e.l.f. Mineral Starter Kit. I had always wanted to see how well mineral make up would work but was actually put off by the price. It’s not like you can just choose one item (like you can with other products) and purchase it, you actually do need the whole kit to get the finished look that is supposed to be the result. But the e.l.f. Mineral Starter Kit is actually quite reasonably priced, and so are replacements so should I like the product I can easily and inexpensively purchase more.

The e.l.f. Mineral Starter Kit comes with a carry case, two brushes (one round one angled) and includes the concealer, foundation and blush. I chose Light (for light skin and golden undertones.) Which was actually a pretty good match, especially when you consider that you are purchasing it online from an image.
What did I like about the e.l.f. Mineral Starter Kit?
I love the case! We were traveling that weekend and all I had to do was slip in my mascara and a lipstick and I was good to go. The make up is so easy to use too. As I mentioned my first weekend using it we were out of town and you know that means little time to get ready. Just tap some color into the lid of the container, roll the brush and apply. It even came with instructions as to where to put which facial product.
The best test is that my parents came to visit some weeks after I started using the e.l.f. Mineral Starter Kit. My mom says, “Did you change your make up? Your skin looks really good.” Friends noticed too, that my skin and face looked just the way I like, natural but with a little bit of color in the blush.
I admit that I have good skin to begin with, but at my age do have a few things I would prefer to keep “undercover” for a little while longer. I also have freckles, and live in Houston, so that means lots of hot days that my make up has to hold up to. e.l.f. Mineral concealer, foundation and blush did just that.
I don’t feel like I’m wearing any make up at all and that could be the best part, that and I am ready to walk out the door in minutes.
What didn’t I like about the e.l.f. Mineral Starter Kit?
The brush “shed” the first few times I used it, but doesn’t any longer.
The blush is actually quite vibrant. I have to remember to use less than I think I need. I will most probably need to replace this item the least often.
Overall, I have found e.l.f. Mineral Starter Kit to give me great looking, natural looking skin and I even received compliments on it. Gotta LOVE that! As inexpensive as it is I will be replacing items as they are used either online or at Targer, which recently started to carry it. But at Target I don’t get the dollar deals, (Shop e.l.f. Cosmetics – $1 Makeup), discounts or coupons available online!
