My husband is awesome, he indulges my blogging/beauty hauls and time spent with the blog. This ELF haul, he actually couldn't believe that I spent $49 for all these products LOL. I told him that this brand is inexpensive and has some great items. He told me that this is an early birthday present (it's in a week, so perfect timing). ELF has always been a favorite brand of mine and although there are some hit and misses, I have found a lot of hits lately. Stay tuned for the rundown!
The 2 brushes that I got are the beautifully bare Stipple Brush and the Blending Brush. I really like the blending brush as it's full bodied and super soft. Now the one thing I am not really happy about is that both these brushes have seriously short handles. But I will work with them for sure!
The Blush and Bronzing palettes are just frickin awesome. Pigmented, compact, easy for travel and gorgeous.
The eyeshadow palettes: Mad for Matte, super neutral and although there are some that are super powdery and light on pigmentation, I feel like I can get some use out of these. The Tantalizing Taupe (clear front) is right up my alley and will definitely be used for everyday eyes. And ladies I am not mad that they give me instructions embossed on the shadows to tell me where to put them, I learn over and over :)! Last but certainly not least the new clay eyeshadows in Saturday Sunsets is beautiful. Pigmented, a little powdery and small which is great for traveling.
The Mineral Infused Mascara will be a first for me as for the Liquid Eyeliner in Charcoal. I have used neither of these products and am looking forward to seeing what all these are about! The Eye Primer and Liner Sealer is another newbie to me. Definitely will have to research how to use the liner sealer!
The Facial Massager intrigued me and anything to aid in my march against an aging face will be welcome!
The lippie addict in me was jumping for joy with the new lippies to my collection as follows:
Left to right:
Aqua Beauty Radiant Gel Lip Stain in Dewy Berry
Beautifully Bare Lipstick in Touch of Blush
Beautifully Bare Lipstick in Touch of Berry
Gotta Glow Lip Tint in Perfect Berry
Last but not least the All Over Color Stick in Persimmon can be used as highlighter, blush topper or eyeshadow IMO. It's a tad icy pink but hey, this lady will try most anything!!!!
Overall. I am a happy and excited lady to play with these products and this will NOT be my last ELF haul. What are some of your product picks from ELF? What should I try? Do tell!!!!
