ELF Haul

ELF Haul

Hello fellow make up addicts,

I got tis haul from ELF last week so I thought it was about time that I show you what I got.

ELF makeup, brushes and nail polishes

As you can see in the picture I got:

nail polishes in Lilac, Punk Purple and Mod Mauve.

Very disappointed with the colors except Lilac, the don’t look AT ALL like on the website, seriously…maybe that’s too much to ask for a £1.5o polish but …Anyway, I reviewed them in a previous post last week so I ‘m not going to talk about them  today.

2 new brushes:

I was very impressed with the eyeliner brush. Really soft and easy to work with, in two or three strokes it covers my whole eye. It’s much bigger than the eyeliner brush from the Studio series (which I also own but this one I like better when I’m on a rush or don’t care that much about  precise lines because I’m not applying a dark color).

I don’t really like the bronzing blush for bronzing, it’s way too small. Not for blushing either. It’s very soft and I like the angle so I’m using it to apply contour and highlight and also to apply bronzer all over  my lid (which most days this summer is pretty much the only thing that goes in my lids apart from eyeliner and mascara.

•2 eyesshadow creams:

ELF eye shadow cream in Butter Pecan (top) and Berry Mix (bottom)

I’ve seen a lot of people seem to have Butter Pecan and I know why now, the colors are pretty, good brown neutrals. I still have to use them as base for powder eyeshadow, which how I’ve seen most people use this one. I tried the darker color today as an eyeliner but it disappear after just a few hours. I’ll keep you updated.

The other shadow is Berry Mix which I also really like the colors on my skin but haven’t used it yet (not wearing that much purple these days). But purples shadows/eyeliner usually suit my brown eyes well.

The last things I bought were:

Brightening eye liner in Midnight

Waterproof eyeliner pen in Midnight

Have only used the regular  eyeliner. It was easy to apply and stayed on for a decent amount of time so I guess the waterproof one will be even better. THe color is not very dark blue but dark enough (I prefer darker than paler tones). Definitely a jewel tone, matte, not sparkly though. I think a sparkly one would be nice. (Sorry forgot to swatch them and now it’s too late to take a picture. Will update tomorrow)

I really like a hint of blue on my eyes. At least this year I’ve been  experimenting  with new colors on my eyes (green, gold, purple and blue, not all at the same time!) and match some of the clothes I wear with the eyeliner color.

I just like a bit of color in my life.

So overall quite happy with my ELF haul.

Update:

Forgot to add that everything here was on their” regular” line so each product was only £1.50, not bad.
