E.L.F Haul!

A lot of you probably saw that Elf had a huge sale… 50% off!! I had been wanting to get some Elf make up for ages so when I saw the sale I was like WOW! I had heard really good things about their make up line so was excited to try it out. Elf is not expensive at all there prices are really good, so much of there stuff starts from £1.50 and really good quality. I was really impressed because they sent me an email and a txt saying that they were sorry if there was any delay in my order but they had such a high volume of orders they were trying to get everyone’s sent out as quick as they could. I didn’t wait long at all I received my order within a few days!


What I got :


*4 x Shimmer Eyeliner Pencils { Iconic ivory, Gunmetal, Boldly Bronzed, Black bandit}
*2 x Luscious Liquid Lipsticks { Maple sugar, Baby lips }
* Plumping Lip Glaze { Baby doll }
* Mineral Lipstick {Natural Nymph }
* Mineral Eyelid Primer { Sheer }
* Natural Radiance Blusher { Coy }
* Liquid Eye shadow { Sultry satin }
* Liquid Eyeliner { Black }
* Waterproof Eyeliner Pen { Black }
* Eye shadow Primer { sheer }
* Studio Pressed Powder { Sand }
* Studio Kabuki Brush
* Studio Make up Mist & Set
* Brush Shampoo
* Daily Brush Cleaner


I wont go into detail about each one, ill just share with you my top 5 from this haul otherwise this would be a very big post lol!

5. Daily Brush Cleaner & Brush Shampoo
These have been so helpful especially for my foundation brushes! They  clean them really well. I have been using the daily cleaner after every use and using the shampoo when my brushes need it. You get alot of product in these, they will last me for ages! Well worth the money. They are usually £3.50 each i paid £1.75 each!

4. Shimmer Eyeliner Pencils

I got four of them in :
Iconic ivory, Gunmetal, Boldly Bronzed and Black Bandit.

I think they looked really good especially with the littler sharpener on top and I loved the colours especially Boldly Bronzed!
Swatches :

They are very creamy and will look gorgeous on the top of your eye or even as a eyeshadow. I found the more I used the more intense the colour so you can use them to go with a natural look or for more of a dramatic look. The iconic ivory really surprised me I thought it would be the least shimmery but its actually has the most shimer out of the 4 I brought. it’s a really nice white silvery colour really pretty! The black bandit is the least shimmery but still makes a nice eyeliner! The Gunmetal and bodly bronzed are really nice too and they are not over the top sparkly but just a really nice shimmer.
They are usually £1.50 each I only paid 75p for them each.


3. Natural Radiance Blusher in Coy

Love this blusher it’s a lovely colour kind of a browny pinky colour and in the light has a mauve colour to it. It is only small but is very pigmented, a little goes along way. Perfect hand bag size and slides up to open.
These are usually £1.50 too so 75p!


2. Mineral Lipstick in Natural Nymph
Great lipstick in a lovely nude colour. Creamy and easy to apply. Lasts well and doesn’t dry your lips. I like to add gloss on top - I think it looks amazing with gloss! I really want to try runway pink next!
These lipsticks are from the mineral range so they are usually £3.50 so I paid  £1.75.

1. Studio Pressed Powder in Sand.

Love Love Love this powder! Works perfectly with my foundation and my skin tone. Looks very natural and gives a great coverage without it feeling cakey. I have been looking for a new good powder and this is it!

The box and packaging is so professional. Has a handy little mirror and the powder lifts up to reveal a little sponge applicator. I use a brush to apply but is always handy for your handbag. The kabuki brush works great with this, which i also got in this haul that I also love its soo soft! I always use both of these when applying my make up now!


Both of these are from the studio range. The powder is usually £3.50 so a great bargain for £1.75 and the Kabuki face brush is usually £5.00 so was £2.50.

 

I was very pleased with my haul got some really nice bits for a great price. It only came to £24.70 including p+p. it’s a shame it was their last 50% off sale but they are always doing special offers and their prices are great anyway I would defo recommend them.
