This is awesome! I will definitely use some of these ticks next time I decide to get creative with my make-up.

OMG!!! This is great. I love how one product can do three things. Do you have a chart as to what shade would go with which skin tone/type? My problem is I get a shade that is too light or too dark. But as Derek said you can't go wrong with this plus only a $1!! Love it!! Thanks E.L.F.

This is great! I always like to see "makeup tips" in action, not just read it because sometime its confusing. If you could show how to apply great colors/tips for Latin women that would also be fantastic!

I love seeing videos like this, I can't wait for more! E.L.F. is so versatile, and so many of the products have dual uses, and it's great to see how the products work on both light and dark skin tones.

I love tutorials on makeup! I have always been somewhat of a tomboy so never really learned how to put on makeup. Now, I am half Caucasian, half Asian, but have a more Hawaiian/Islander look, so am really interested in seeing the looks on those types of models.

This is so awesome and helpful! I love makeup but always had a makeup artist during my modeling days. I never really learned how to apply a complete look on myself. I'm assuming each new video will be posted on Monday's but is there any sort of email update or text reminder we can get to alert when the new video is posted?

How awesome is it that during these hard economical times you can score a product that is 3 in 1 plus it's only $1! I love that this is going to be a 12 week series, and it's on youtube. Another great thing about this video is that Derek reminds us to blend around the ears and neck! I have seen too many cases of the "chin line" from not blending... Women don't wear chin straps!

Not only do you have amazing prices, your marketing and sales approach is phenomenal. Derek and Achelle seem fun and approachable. I have yet to try the products, but my first order is in the mail! Thanks again for making beauty affordable and accessible to young, busy, and working women. I hope your efforts pay you back 10 fold!

Thanks for the tip! I am so excited to see all 12 videos. It seems like I forget to blend all the way sometimes. Thanks for reminding me that I really need to get in there and blend. I love the idea of having a 3 in 1 face product. It makes it so easy and just one step instead of 3.

I love how these products cater to women of all shades, because there are definitely lines that are only limited to lighter skin, or darker skin. I'm a fan of the makeup sponges. They're only a dollar and I can always stock up on a bunch of them to perfectly set my foundation. :)

I agree with some of the previous comments. It is important to have models with a variety of backgrounds. Just having one light and one dark-skinned model will not be sufficient for anyone with skin tones in between. But I am glad that you at least had the idea in mind to consider different ethnicities.

I am so excited about this episode. I am african american and I always hear that you can use the same products no matter what your skin color is. I never believe this and every time I try it never works. For instance, I always thought bronzer was for caucasians only! Most magazines only show how to use the makeup on white girls so it is so exciting to see how to use it on women of color too! Thanks E.L.F. for thinking of us!!!

I recently started using the shielding hydro-tint and LOVE it! It feels so good going on, then provides enough color that I dont need much more than a dab of concealer and a little powder. Feels great to not have to coat my face every day! I love the tip about using this under your lip gloss- I never thought of that, but will definitely have to try it!

This really does work as a great moisturizer and spf! I've been using this product for a few months now. I got in February because my skin is very dry in the colder months. This refreshed my face and made my skin look MUCH better! This is also good for the summer because of the spf. My makeup always looks better when my face is moisturized and healthy.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this!!!! Women of color are RARELY mentioned in mainstream productions. I would recommend having Hispanic and Asian women also. XOXOX

I just watched episode 10 - that was the first one I watched and I knew I had to go back and watch from the beginning! I'm planning on picking up a lot of hints!
