E.l.f Haul | Initial Thoughts and Swatches!


For someone who loves a bargain and a discount code I don't know why this order hadn't been made sooner! I'd had a browse around the E.l.f website a few times and saw some reviews floating around the blogosphere but never got around to actually purchasing anything myself until now, my E.l.f cherry has officially been popped! Here's a peek of what the postman bought me and full reviews will be up in due course when I've had a proper play around with my new toys! 


My cuticles are never really something I took any notice of or properly took care of - that was until they starting looking an absolute state. The cuticle pen is meant to moisturise them and make them softer so they're easier to manage with my brand spanking new cuticle pusher downers, beautiful nails here I come! A lip brush is something that I was missing from my brush collection but now I've finally got one those pesky lip products in tubes that were giving me grief should apply like a dream!


I'm trying to broaden my eyeshadow collection and I'm a sucker for a neutral shade so these three seemed like the perfect pick for me, even I can't go wrong with these basic neutral colours! E.l.f have such an amazing range of shades but I didn't want to go wild before I saw how I got on with them. I prime my face but I've never primed my eyes before and my eyeshadow wasn't really fairing that well 9-5 in this humid weather so anything to lend a helping hand!


If I let slip how long it had been since I'd last given my make up brushes a good clean I would probably have my blogger status revoked so we won't even go there but I am delighted to report that they are now as clean as the day I bought them because of the E.l.f Brush Shampoo. This stuff is AMAZING!!!! If you want the cleanest, softest brushes in the world this is the stuff to do it. You can't go wrong with a lip balm and at this time of year SPF is crucial and if it's going to add a pretty peach tint to my lips in the process who am I to argue? I've been dying to try an All Over Colour Stick ever since I read that it was a dupe for a NARS Multiple which has been on my wishlist for far too long but I might be able to tick it off now if this turns out to be a bargainous alternative. Last but not least in my never ending parcel of beauty goodies is a cream to powder blusher in the shade Heartbreaker which I've already worn everyday since it arrived so a review is on its way! 


All in all I am very impressed! There's quite a few other bits that I had my eye on that were out of stock so I dare say that I'll be making another order in the not so distant future, hopefully it coincides with one of their infamous 50% off weekends!

  8. I'd had a look on the elf website ages ago, but hadn't even got close to buying anything. Now I'd be much more inclined and will see about ordering some stuff!
