All Over Cover Stick is a very tiny stick foundation with an unattractively thick, greasy texture that blends decently but still looks heavy on skin (sort of like theatrical greasepaint). The waxlike thickening agents put acne-prone skin on the fast track for more blemishes, and two of the three shades are very peach. It does not contain a single “active natural” ingredient, and is in no way preferred to any other stick foundation.

Brand Overview

e.l.f. At-A-Glance

e.l.f. (it stands for which stands for Eyes, Lips, Face) was founded by Scott Vincent Borba and Joseph Shamah. The story goes that one day Borba was shopping in a dollar store and noticed women dressed in designer clothing and sporting designer handbags loading up their baskets with inexpensive nail polish, eye pencils, and lip balm. He took note of the products being sold in such stores and quickly decided he could offer products of even higher quality at the same competitive price. His idea paid off, as e.l.f. has enjoyed continued success and increased distribution online and in retail stores.

For a line offering many products for just a dollar (OK, there are plenty that cost $3 and $5, too), there are a surprising number of hits in the mix (especially the makeup brushes). True, not everything is going to be as luxurious or innovative as some higher-end brands, but overall you're likely to be impressed with what they developed for so little money, and you may just find some beauty bargains!
