E.L.F Haul (Pic heavy)!

Hey, this post has been long awaited and has been delayed due to me being away recently to Umrah! (Post a comment if you want to share a post on Umrah).

So a little while ago, e.l.f (Eyes, Lips, Face cosmetics) had a half price offer if you spent a certain amount. I purchased the following products and am pleased with them so far.

e.l.f. Contouring blush and bronzing duo in St Lucia - love the creamy texture of this duo. You can achieve a really pretty look with a bit of blending!
e.l.f St Lucia on hand
e.l.f. St Lucia cream Blush and Contour duo - gorgeous coral blush colour

e.l.f HD Blush in (l-r) Headliner, Superstar and Diva
e.l.f HD blush Headliner, Superstar and Diva on hand - as you can see these are super pigmented and range from peachy tomes to bright vivid pink
e.l.f HD blush Headliner, Superstar and Diva shades - can use these on your lips too! The only thing is that it dispenses (yup that's right it comes with a hygienic dispensing pump) quite a bit of product so you do end up wasting a bit - this is made up for by the low price of the actual product :p
e.l.f Studio Blush in Candid Coral
e.l.f studio blush in candid coral - looks very pale on skin and would be nice as a gold shimmery highlighter
e.l.f candid coral studio blush...more pale gold with glittery flecks

e.l.f studio HD powder - corrective yellow for red skin, I only got this because they ran out of the original one but when I used it, it gave my skin a soft focus look. Great on top of makeup to pull your look together and finish it off. Caution - this product tends to spill all over the outside of the pot as you can see from the picture.
e.l.f stipple and contour brush - good quality for the low price I paid
e.l.f shine eraser blotting paper and eyeshadow brushes - the blotting paper has green tea extract and mops up excess sebum from the face
e.l.f make up brushes - as a tip, I would stick to the Studio range, they may cost a little more but will be worth it.

e.l.f studio stipple and contour brushes
e.l.f Studio contour, studio stipple and tools eyeshadow/blending brushes. All of the brushes are super soft.

Hope you enjoyed this post and read the little comments below the pics. ELF nearly always have some sort of offer on. Do you guys swear by any elf products?

Just came across this bad boy of an eyeshadow palette on the elf website. 100 colours for £15. The nudes on the left of the palette plus the pinks in the 5th row are really pretty.
