Eyes Lips Face Loot.
After a bit of a palaver, many trips to my post office & a few emails to ELF customer services I finally received the order I placed over a month ago! I wasn’t very impressed, but to be fair, nothing like that has ever happened with any of my previous orders so I guess it’s just one of those things. I still can't help but feel a little annoyed though!
I use my studio powder brush every single day that I wear make up to put on my foundation and cream blush so I figured that having two would be more practical. This is probably my absolute favourite brush because it applies products so flawlessly and the last thing I want in the mornings is streaky foundation! I also find it quite easy to keep clean, after every use I give it a quick spot clean with my ELF brush cleanser and then once or twice a week I’ll deep clean it properly. I must admit I’m a bit of an obsessive brush cleaner!
I needed a new mascara & I’ve had the waterproof, lengthening and volumising one before and I quite liked it. It’s nothing amazing but I do think it does a great job of lengthening my lashes, which I always need, and it’s only £3.50. It’s perfect for those lazy days when I wear minimal make up.
Lip balms in winter are one of my must needed products! I’ve had the blackberry crème before which I really liked, but my boyfriend absolutely hates, apparently it reminds him of cough medicine. This time I opted for the orange crème which I don’t like as much, but it’s okay. I really like the feeling of these balms on my lips and they’re only £1.50. I just wish I'd got the vanilla one instead!
After seeing pictures of the new nail polish shades I knew I had to have a couple & I picked out the shades Twinkle & Golden Goddess. They’re both glitter polishes so I know they’re going to be a pain to remove but I’m a sucker for a bit of glitter, especially at Christmas time. I’m not sure how good they’re going to be but I’m excited to use these over my favourite polishes to make them glittery and pretty!
The mineral lipsticks are among my favourite lipsticks of all time. I have three other shades and I think they’re amazing value for money and great quality. This time I picked up the shade Pouty Petal which looks really natural on my lips but makes them look a little prettier. Lovely! For £3.50 that’s a bargain!
Finally, this pretty little palette was the whole reason I made this order in the first place. As soon as I saw pictures I knew I had to have it & for £3.50 I figured I couldn’t really go wrong. I must say, going on first impressions alone, I’m very impressed. All the shadows are quite shimmery which I personally don’t mind and for the most part they’re decently pigmented.
I can’t seem to find these palettes on the website so I’m not sure if you can get them anymore, if you get the opportunity though, I’d say go for it! I also like the packaging; it’s simple and sleek & also comes with a particularly useless looking teeny tiny brush!
Have you tried any of these products before? What do you think of them?
