Oh my, it feels like I haven't wrote a blog post in forever but in fact it's only been a matter of days since I popped my last post up but I finally have some spare time, yippee!The last few weeks I've been constantly exhausted, I guess that's what happens when your routines change, I wasn't used to getting up early mornings until now.
Anyway, you most probably know a week or two ago Eyes Lips Face (or ELF) had a 50% off sale on their website due to reaching a certain amount of followers on twitter.I couldn't resist and I held back a little on how much I spent and only spent at least £20.95 including p&p which is pretty good considering I chose to get 14 items.Anyway, I have been meaning to put this post up for a while now since I received it at least a week ago so here we go..
(I am so sorry again for the rubbish quality of the picture by the way! I have been meaning to get a camera and the lighting was terrible once I got back from work experience).
To get a good idea about these products I have included a few mini reviews of the items I have used since I bought.I can't go into specifics with some of them as I haven't got much use out of them as I'd like but here we go.
In my ELF Cosmetics Haul were the following products:
Beach Party Nail Polish Set- I know the name says 'beach party' indicating they are summer polishes but I absolutely love the shades included in this set, they are my type of shades and I know I will be using these a lot.
Nail Polishes- I bought 2 of these in the sale category on the website and got these for a bargain of just 50p each!The shades that I bought were 'Cranberry' and 'Red Velvet' which are beautiful shades to wear for Autumn.I have to admit my favorite nail polish is the shade Cranberry, it's such a wearable color but Red Velvet is gorgeous too.
Tone Correcting Concealer- I wanted to try a different concealer as I've been so attached to my Collection 2000 lasting finish concealer for the last few months and nothings compared to it so I opted for this one.I have used this at least 2 or 3 times and it doesn't seem to give a lot of coverage.I have pink flushed cheeks and silly me, expected this to cover it up but it didn't seem to work but it works well on covering up small spots.
Lipstick- I think it's safe to say I have a huge obsession with lipsticks and my collection is growing by the minute! I couldn't resist picking up 3 of these lipsticks in the sale.I bought the shades 'Gypsy' which is a purple toned shade, classy which is a light pink/slightly nude shade and 'Flirtatious' which is a pink/peach shade.I can't really say anything much about them as I haven't made use of them yet but they looked beautiful when swatched.
HD Blush- Okay, so lately I've been getting more into blushes since I bought the Sleek blushes and I have been wanting to try liquid formulas ever since so I opted for 2 of ELFS HD blushes in the shades 'Headliner' which is a light pink shade and 'Superstar' which is a coral shade.I swatched both of these blushes when I received them as I couldn't resist but they too look absolutely beautiful when swatched.I have to admit I wasn't keen at first on a coral blush but I'm hoping it will look lovely and healthy.I will keep you updated with a review on the future for sure(if I remember that is). I have a memory of a goldfish.
ELF Baked Blush- These were the products that I was mostly excited about receiving in my haul as they are baked blushes and I've never tried anything of the sort before.
I bought 2 of these blushes in the shades 'Pinktastic' and 'Peachy Cheeky'.I have only tried out one of these blushes at least once so I can't really say much about them either.I used the shade 'Pinktastic' a few days ago and I only seen a slight shimmer on my cheeks which I was so disappointed about but hopefully the other shade will work better for me.
Matte Lip Color- Oh my, this is my favorite of them all! I have worn this a a few times since I received it and I love it!I got this lip color in the shade 'Coral' and it works so well with my fair/pale skin but I'm afraid there is a teeny downfall, it was a teeny bit dry on my lips but nothing a lip balm or lip gloss can't fix!
Studio Makeup Mist & Set- I seen quite a few reviews on various beauty blogs and at least one or two of these beauty bloggers had said that it was a cheap dupe for MAC's Fix+so I thought I'd pop it onto my list and see if it's as good as they say.I haven't tried this yet but I am looking forward to testing it out.
Eye Crease Brush- Last but not least this lovely crease brush, I have used this a few times with my Naked palette shadows.This works so well for working the color into the crease, who knew a cheap brush from ELF would work so well?! I love it.I definitely recommend this brush to anyone, it's such a great bargain buy.
