I haven’t had a haul from ELF in a while and when I saw that they were having a 50% off discount last weekend, I had to do it. Items from ELF can be a bit hit and miss, but I was quite pleased with the majority of the items I ordered. With the prices you pay, especially with a 50% discount (never buy from ELF without a discount, they will always have a discount eventually), it’s not a total loss if a few items don’t work out.
ELF Studio Blush Candid Coral-The packaging of the Studio Line blushes is reminiscent of Nars packaging and this little beauty is a gem. Can you believe I don’t own any coral blushes? The little mirror is a nice touch as well.
ELF Lipstick Captivating-I am a big fan of ELF lipstick lately, they last a good amount of time and have a really nice scent. The only thing to be wary of is that the colours are not true to the swatches on the website. Also if you order two lipsticks in the same shade at different times, the colour is not always consistent. Captivating is a lovely coral though (this time)!
ELF Eyelid Primer Champagne-I wanted the Sheer, but they were sold out so I went with Champagne instead, hoping it works as well as Sheer does! Bit annoyed that the lid came with a crack it in it.
ELF Eyebrow Treat and Tame Medium-This is the dud of the bunch, I should have done my research though. I went for the medium shade with looks quite red. Apparently the eyebrow kit is a better bet.
ELF Studio Small Stipple Brush-Another purchase inspired by a vlogger, this brush was raved about by MsBudgetBeauty for applying cream blush/highlight. Currently, I love my Real Techniques Contour brush to apply cream blush, but I also like it for contouring, which is a problem as it is usually mucked up with cream blush. I am hoping now I can use this for cream and my Real Techniques for contour.
What are your best and worst purchases from ELF? Any of these items take your fancy?
