Elf Haul!

So, some of you know that I took advantage of the 50% off ELF products last week. I have interested in ELF products for a while and this was the perfect opportunity to get some little bits. Let’s get to it…

Firstly are the face and nail products I bought.





I bought the Studio Cream Blush in ‘Heart Breaker’, you get a whopping 15g of product. The only issue is that it doesn’t fit in my ‘blush’ drawer! The texture is a soft cream, I haven’t used it yet, but it feels as though it will give a powder finish.

Next is a Blush in ‘Blushing Rose’. I am loving this blush right now, I can’t stop wearing it. It’s a purpley pink with fine gold shimmer in it (you can barely notice the shimmer).

The two nail polishes I got are ‘Mango Madness’ and ‘Passion Pink’. These are my type of colours and perfect for summer, don’t you think? They dry so fast! You need to apply three coats but because it dries so fast I’m not bothered.


Moving on to lip products. On the far right is the Studio Matte Lip Colour in ‘Praline’. I am loving this product, for me it’s a ‘my lips but better’ kind of colour. The pen type tube makes it easy to apply. It’s not too matte and the pigment is great. I wish I had got some more colours if I’m honest.

In the middle is a Lip Balm SPF 15 in ‘Peach’. This is quite moisturising, which it should be and the colour pay off is just right for a balm (meaning sheer).

On the left is the Lipstick in ‘Seductive’, which is described as a deep warm pink crème. The swatch on the website quite different than what the colour actually is, but I like the colour and it suits me. What has annoyed me about this is that it has already broken =(. I can still use it and repair it but still, it shouldn’t have broken.

Last few items are two Eyeshadows in ‘Wild Wheat’ and ‘Raspberry Truffle’. The pigment is quite good but you definitely need some kind of base for the shadow to stick to.

And finally my obsession with make up brushes doesn’t cease! Don’t look at me like that…I can’t help it. I got the Bamboo Eyeshadow brush which is a similar shape to the mac 239 but a lot more fuller and the bristles aren’t as soft but it seems good quality but only time will tell. The next brush isn’t something that I have seen before, it’s the Defining Eye Brush, I haven’t used this brush yet so I can’t really comment but I am looking forward to it.

Did you take advantage of the discount? Have you tried ELF products? What’s your favourite product? =) x

    1. They work so well, the bamboo one is amazing for packing on colour and the angled one is perfect for what is made for. I haven't noticed any shedding either! =D xo
