I think this "Get the Look" series is so amazing! It helps me make decisions on which products to buy and also helps an aspiring make up artist like myself to know which products and looks work well with different skin tones and textures. THANKS E.L.F.!!

It looks like the all over stick is extremely easy to use. That would be great if it came out in a mineral formula as well, for those who like to use minerals too! Both the Caucasian and African American models look flawless!

I've been wanting to try this cover stick for a while now. It looks so smooth on the second girl! I never thought about mixing it in with a moisturizer either. Thanks for the tip, Achelle! By the way, I just purchased the concealer in fair, and I have to say. I've never found a concealer that matched my skin tone this well. i'll be sure to pick up the cover stick now!!

I love how the concealer completely evened out their tone even though she only used a small amount. I wish I could find a concealer that worked for me that well ... i'm having a little problem with finding a color that matches or is not too red or too brown. I'm biracial - black mom and white dad ... this is a typical problem for me though. Thanks e.l.f. for the fantastic products though!

I really think it's awful when women cake on the foundation. it really looks terrible, so i'm glad they clarified that. The "T" look is definitely much better than the "i look faker than a barbie" look.

This tzone trick really works. Sometimes you really don't need foundation all over your face. When you start at the tzone and then blend out you look fantastic and you save so much product! This is a great tip!

This is a very good tip! I've always had problem with applying foundation on and this helps a lot to know which areas of my face I should be applying it on. I usually have a flaky face right after applying any kind of foundation so it's been an issue for me, therefore, I just never put on foundation. This is very good because at least now I know how to apply, how much to apply, and since the elf product is only $1.00, I will be sure to try this tip! I will definitely need to tell my coworkers as well!

Thank you so much for covering concealer for women of color. As a black woman, it is SO hard to find good makeup advice and I had no idea how to use concealer or where to apply it. I actually like the way the all over color stick looked on those women and am now considering adding it to my cart. :)

I haven't used the All Over Color stick yet, buy after watching this video, I really want to try it. I live on the East Coast, where in the summers it's humid and sticky. That makes wearing makeup kind of difficult without taking some preventative steps. I like the idea of wearing the All Over Stick where needed so that I can get coverage during the upcoming humid months. Thanks for the video!!

I love the idea of using your hand as a palette becuase it stops you from putting on to much or wasting product. Keep up the good work!

We've order just about everything collectively, now we're duplicating. Get some new stuff for us to get excited over. I think I'm waiting for my free make up kit with the combination of eyes lips and face. Otherwise love the products. Hope I get the free $5.00 coupon. Marsha from Philly.
