One brand frequently stands out in the world of skincare and beauty — e.l.f. Cosmetics.
With Avenue B's mission to bring you the best of everything, from the delightfully affordable to the decadently luxurious, e.l.f. finds its home as a brand that captures both quality and affordability. Let's dive deeper into the e.l.f. magic that has taken Avenue B — and the beauty world — by storm.
e.l.f. Brand Overview
e.l.f., which stands for “Eyes Lips Face,” began its journey with a simple mission: delivering high-quality cosmetics at pocket-friendly prices.
Their rise in the beauty world was rapid, and they quickly cemented a reputation as the brand that doesn't make you choose between quality and cost. At the heart of e.l.f.’s mission is a commitment to inclusivity, ensuring everyone, regardless of their budget or skin type, can access top-tier beauty products.
e.l.f. offers a wide range of products, from vibrant eyeshadow palettes to skin-loving foundations, so it’s no surprise that they’ve become one of the most popular go-to brands.
Why Do e.l.f. Products Stand Out?
In the realm of cosmetics, we’ll be honest — the options are pretty much endless, but e.l.f. manages to shine bright… and for good reason.
The brand's commitment to inclusivity isn't just about budget-friendly prices. It's also about creating products that cater to diverse beauty needs. With a constant pulse on beauty trends and an eye for innovation, e.l.f. consistently rolls out products that truly resonate with both beauty aficionados and novices alike.
But there's more to e.l.f.’s charm than just its products. The brand aligns perfectly with Avenue B's approach — creative, engaging, and community-driven. While some brands might lean heavily on their legacy or exclusive price tags, e.l.f. champions accessibility, ensuring everyone feels welcome in the expansive world of beauty. In doing so, e.l.f. not only establishes itself as a star for affordable quality, but also as a brand that understands and values its community.
What Are the Top 10 e.l.f. Products?
Beauty products can often feel overwhelming, with such a large number of choices available at every turn. At Avenue B, our mission is to simplify this journey for you, spotlighting products that truly resonate with beauty lovers.
As part of our commitment to tailored beauty solutions, we're thrilled to present a curated list of the 10 best e.l.f. products that have caught the attention of our community. Whether you're a seasoned beauty guru or only just beginning to explore the magic of makeup, this list has something for everyone.
1. e.l.f Poreless Putty Primer
The e.l.f. Poreless Putty Primer stands as a shining example of e.l.f.’s mission to offer top-tier products at accessible prices. This primer doesn't just match the quality of high-end brands — for many, it outperforms them. Its silky, seamless texture allows for an easy glide onto the skin, ensuring a perfect base for any makeup that follows.
Enriched with squalane, which is known for its hydrating properties, it helps keep your skin nourished, ensuring that your makeup doesn’t just look good, but feels good too.
Beyond hydration, it also helps minimize the look of imperfections. Whether you’re dealing with enlarged pores or fine lines, this primer helps mask them with a soft-focus effect, making skin appear refined and smooth. This product is a super transformative addition to any beauty routine.
2. e.l.f. 16-Hour Camo Concealer
The 16-Hour Camo Concealer by e.l.f. is designed to last — this concealer brings you coverage that keeps you covered from morning to evening. Its formula is carefully crafted to give you full coverage, concealing common concerns like dark circles, blemishes, and redness without feeling weighed down or heavy.
That said though, it's not just about performance. One of the aspects that really sets this concealer apart is its thoughtful design — specifically, the large doe-foot applicator. This design choice helps make the application process that much easier, ensuring precision and ease of use… which is especially welcome for those of us juggling fast-paced lives. Plus, this concealer's broad range of shades is a nod to e.l.f.’s mission to cater to all skin tones.
Considering its exceptional performance, matched with an affordable price point, it's no surprise that the 16-Hour Camo Concealer has become a fan favorite.
3. e.l.f. Instant Lift Brow Pencil
Eyebrows, often referred to as the “frame” of the face, play a key role in shaping and defining your facial aesthetics… and the Instant Lift Brow Pencil is a tool designed to simplify the brow-shaping process for an easy, flawless look every time.
This dual-ended marvel is more than just a pencil — one end has a precision tip, allowing you to create perfectly fine, hair-like strokes that mimic your real brow hairs. Flip it over, and you’ll find a spoolie that’s perfect for blending and grooming for a natural but polished finish.
This pencil's formulation deserves a mention, too. It has a smooth, creamy consistency that allows it to effortlessly glide across your skin, filling in any gaps or sparse areas. The result? Brows that look naturally fuller and more defined without stepping into the realm of the overtly dramatic.
4. e.l.f. Hydrating Bubble Mask
In the world of beauty, where skincare and cosmetics meet self-care, e.l.f. consistently brings to the table products that find a place in both realms. And if you ask us, there’s really nothing better than a beauty product that doubles as a form of self-care.
Among its standout offerings is the Hydrating Bubble Mask, a super fun fusion of novelty and effectiveness. When applied, this mask starts its transformation into a cloud of bubbles and froth. This froth isn’t just for show, though — it interacts with your skin, gently purifying and deeply hydrating with every bubble's burst.
At the heart of this mask lies its potent blend of ingredients. Witch hazel, known for its skin-clearing properties, effectively helps unclog pores, ensuring a clean, clear complexion. In addition, glycerin steps in as a hydration hero, binding moisture to the skin and leaving your complexion feeling supple and rejuvenated.
For many, skincare is more than just routine. It's a full-on ritual and a moment of self-care, indulgence, and fun — and the Hydrating Bubble Mask is the perfect combo of both enjoyment and skin enhancement.
5. e.l.f. Baked Highlighter
When it comes to cosmetics, certain products shine a bit brighter than others… and e.l.f.'s Baked Highlighter is undeniably shining bright. At its core, this product promises a gleaming, ethereal touch of radiance that enhances and illuminates your skin. Crafted with precision, its texture is pretty close to silk — it’s buttery smooth, ensuring an even application.
The light-reflecting pigments in this product work some real skin magic. They help capture and play with light, offering a luminous sheen that can be dialed down for a muted daytime shimmer, or amplified for an all-out evening dazzle.
6. e.l.f. Lip Exfoliator
In the world of beauty and skincare, lip care is sometimes underappreciated — it’s an easy step to skip over, and skipping it often won’t compromise your entire look the same way skipping your facial moisturizer might.
But when you do take care of your lips, it can level up your entire beauty routine. When it comes to lip care, e.l.f.'s Lip Exfoliator emphasizes just how vital and transformative the right lip care can be.
This product, dressed in packaging that makes it look just like lipstick, brings you a blend of both innovation and nurture. It boasts a mix of vitamin E, shea butter, and avocado oil, all of which bring you the ultimate nourishing prowess for a perfect pout. However, this product isn’t just an ordinary lip balm — it's actually an exfoliator that’s designed to gently (but effectively) rid your lips of dry, flaky skin.
With this product, you can take your lips from chapped and rough to soft, smooth, and supple, setting the stage for other lip products. With smoother lips, your lip liners, lipsticks, and lip glosses can glide on more effortlessly, shimmer brighter, and penetrate deeper.
7. e.l.f. Matte Lip Crayon
When it comes to lip products, e.l.f.’s Matte Lip Crayon stands out, merging vibrant colors with a flawless matte finish. This gem has a user-friendly twist-up design that simplifies application — effortlessly lining and filling lips in a single sweep.
The formula is infused with vitamins A, C, and E, all of which help make sure your lips stay hydrated, even as they flaunt a velvety new shade. It’s a welcome change from other lip products that leave your lips feeling parched and cracked halfway through the day.
Plus, it’s available in an extensive range of colors, catering to diverse needs and events. Whether you're seeking a muted elegance for daywear or a bolder hue for nighttime, there's a shade awaiting you.
8. e.l.f. Daily HydrationMoisturizer
Are you on the path to radiant skin? Simplify it with e.l.f.’s Daily HydrationMoisturizer, a skincare wonder with a light and airy texture.

This product isn’t just about hydration, though. It's also about preparation. This product helps prepare your skin for makeup application and anything the day has in store, giving you a smooth, soothed canvas for any other products.
