It depends. I like Hard Candy for their foundation but ELF for their contour kit / brushes

Depends on what item you're looking for... ELF has great brushes but Hard candy has some good primers and concealer.

Hard Candy because it isn't as "cheap" feeling and it lasts longer.

Hard Candy is definently better! Elf is more of a cheaper less quality version. Hard Candy is worth it's price. Elf's products are cheap and so is it's quality

Different things from different lines. Elf has nice lipsticks and blushes. Hard candy has great liquid liner and glamouflauge I cannot live without glamouflauge.

Hard candy have a better track record for me. ELF tends to dry up or break up whatever the case and such is not the case with hard candy. i ran out of mascara(it is no less product than other brands) before it dried up which i cant even say for some HIGH end ones

I love a bunch of E.L.F products, especially for the eyes. Hard Candy has better lip stains, in my opinion.

I find that these are both great brands but you do get what you pay for. I think hard candy has better products. Elf has some great products too, don't get me wrong, but I prefer the quality of Hard Candy.

I don't wear make up too often, but I do like Hard Candy's eyeshadows and nail polish. The colors are bolder and brighter. So, if that's the look you're going for, stick to hard candy :) I've found elf is more natural.

Personally I love hard candy and ELF. I tend to find that some products are great and some are not with both but as for shadows, I am loving elf. Reason being is that pigmentation is not so great in some of the palettes that I have by hard candy. Hope this helps.
