E.L.F HAUL








Hi lovelies! For the first time in a long time, I made an e.l.f order! I haven't used any products from e.l.f for over a year or so, so I was really excited when I got an email newsletter from them saying they had 50% off everything for the bank holiday weekend! So of course, I had to make an order! As I hadn't ordered from e.l.f in a very long time, I wasn't really sure where to begin! The last order I made was back in the day where everything was £1.50 and while the prices have gone up, the product quality has also hugely improved and the range of products on offer is way bigger than it used to be!

Everything you see here ranged from £1.95 to £5, so still not breaking the bank, even before the amazing 50% discount! So, as I'm (kind of) new to e.l.f products, I decided to go for mostly lip and cheek products before I went for base products or eye products, because for some reason, I always lean more high end with foundations, eyeshadows, mascaras etc. However, after trying this lovely lot, I definitely think I'll be tempted to branch out a little more in my next order! And yes, there will definitely be a next order.

What I noticed first was the huge improvement in the packaging of the products. For such an inexpensive brand, the packaging is sturdy, sleek and classy. The simple matte black design most of their products have kind of reminds me of NARS, which is fab! As you can see, I picked out two cheek products, six lip products and some eyelashes. The lashes were a bargain at just under £1 after the discount and they were absolutely fab when I wore them on a night out on Saturday. As I needed a new bronzer anyway, I decided to try the 'St Lucia' Contouring Blush and Bronzing Duo, which comes with a pretty, shimmery coral pink blush and light/ medium bronzer. The other cheek product is the Studio Blush in 'Twinkle Pink', which is a cute, light natural warm toned pink, perfect for every day. I will be reviewing both of these products as I've been very impressed so far! Both products come with a good sized mirror inside, which I love. I'm always disappointed when a compact doesn't have a mirror in it, just me?

As for the lip products, I'd heard great things about e.l.f's Studio Matte Lip Colour's, so at 50% off, I decided to pick up a few shades, as I was after some new nude shades, and I love a matte lip. I picked up the shades Coral, Natural and Nearly Nude, all of which are gorgeous neutrals. Again, I'll be reviewing these at some point, as they've quickly become my go to lippies for every day! Another product that I was intrigued to try was the Lip Stain in Heartbreaker, which is a neutral coral shade. This comes with a clear lipgloss, which honestly I probably won't use as gloss just isn't my thing! I haven't had a chance to give this a proper go yet, but will hopefully let you know my thoughts when I do! The other two lip products I picked out were Mineral Lipsticks in Runway Pink and Natural Nymph. I haven't tried these yet, but again, they're very pretty neutral shades. Did I mention I wanted some new nude shades?

Let me know if you'd like any individual reviews! What are your fave e.l.f products? Let me know, I'd love to try some of your recommendations!

  1. I love my coral lip colour but I find nearly nude is a bit too foundation lips.

  2. I'd really recommend their Eyebrow Kit, comes in a wax form with a setting powder as well :)
    Their lip glosses are also so good and cheap as well :)

  3. I purchased the bronze and blush duo as well, but found the bronze to be too orangey. I would be interested in your view.

  6. Absolutely gutted that I missed a 50 % off sale on ELF, I've got to admit they are one of those brands that I go in and out of one year I will order a ridiculous amount and a couple months later I just forget all about it even though I do like it, I might need to order again soon after reading this.

    I just found your blog today, I'm actually a little bit in love with it! Despite the fact that I'm supposed to be at work... Oops!

  7. I have the 'natural' lip colour - which I love as a nude. I also got the St Lucia blush/bronzer - I have super pale skin and I'm struggling to to get it to work for me. Even so, it's was so cheap I'm not to upset!
