A mini ELF haul


Sooooo this blogpost is a little late I ordered wednesday night and received my little package Friday morning but I've been busy working in Liverpool and Blackpool this week and haven't had time to put this post together and let you know about this promotion (most of your probably know about it).
Anyway, ELF had a 40% off if you spend over £20 the offer ends at 1am tonight so hurry girls!

I've always been sceptical about buying elf products due to how cheap it is and worrying about how good the quality of the products I'll receive will be. So I ordered my little sister some make up for christmas and only ordered myself a few things (I can't show what I got my sister incase she see's this post).

I ordered the studio cream blush in the colour Heartbreaker (£6.50) because it looked like a lovely coral colour BUT when it arrived it was it's a bright rosy pink!! I like how it is a matte colour. It goes from a cream to quite a powdery texture which I'm not too keen on.

 I love matte lips in winter this studio matte lipcolour (£3.50) is a lovely coral colour. It is a a twist up pencil application, it glides on with ease with a smooth texture however, it is a tad bit drying on the lips so wear with lipbalm!

I got this clear mascara (£1.50) to neaten my eyebrows with after I've filled them in. I'm pleased with this product, it's simple, cheap and it does it's job!

I was excited to hear about this product, a top coat which makes your nail polish matte...yes please!
(£1.50) I've not tried this product yet but I've heard great reviews and really looking foward to using it and for £1.50 you can't go wrong.

I got this nail polish in the colour twinkle (£1.50) it is a clear polish with irridescent small pieces of glitter. It is lovely on it's own or over a colour (it's over Barry M's blue moon). I love it, only problem with elfs nail polish is the drying time but a quick spray of Sally Hansens dry fast and its fine :)

These are the luscious liquid lipsticks in pink lemonade and baby lips (£1.50) pink lemonade has decent pigmentation however, baby lips shows up as a clear gloss on my lips (I was hoping for a lovely pale pink colour :( ) They are really sticky and thick which I really don't like, I'm not sure how much use I'll get out of these.

The high definition powder (£6) is a translucent powder which blurrs imperfections and sets make up. I thought I'd try this as I love my mac prep + prime translucent powder (£17.50) and this is a cheap alternative. I don't like the powder pad to apply the powder I use a kabuki brush. I think the the elf powder is more sheer and doesn't seem to mattify my foundation much yet sets it. I still prefer my mac prep + prime translucent pwder. However, the elf high definition powder is a cheap day to day option.

Did any of you lovelies take advantage of the 40% off offer?! does anyone want to change my opinion on elf and recommend me some products worth trying?

  1. Love your post. I've not tried any ELF either as was worried how good it would be. Think I might buy some tonight :) is there a code you need for the offer? Xx

  2. I just ordered from ELF and seriously regret not buying a blush :( I have the matte lipstick and didn't realise it twists up, thanks aha!xx

  3. @MissLyndseyJA Yep the code is available on the homepage of the website, it has changed daily so not too sure what it is tpday but it will be in the left hand corner of the screen :) it's definatly worth trying out.

    @KissAndMakeUpoo the cream blushes aren't too good especially considering they are £6.50 compared to the normal studio blushes which are £3 I think, they are better I'd compare them to the Nars powder blushes
