Elf


Elf is probably one of my favorite makeup brands, they have great products at affordable prices and a huge range to choose from. This is a 'mini review' post on a package I got from Elf about 2 weeks ago. I left it this long as I wanted to have tried all the products atleast once before posting.
THIS POST IS PICTURE HEAVY.




Beauty School Eyeshadow Palette In Natural
Priced at £3.50

I'm sure you guys know I'm a huge lover of the natural look so I just love these kinds of palettes. As you can see three of the colours are matte and three are shimmer which like I've also stated before I LOVE as it then becomes a day to night palette in my eyes. You also get a handy little brush which I haven't actually used to apply these colours with but I have used it for other things.



Corrective Concealer Palette
Priced at £3.50

This is a must in any makeup bag. It also comes with a little brush applicater and an attached mirror so its perfect to pop into your handbag.



(L-R)
Pearl Pink & Fluorescent Pink
Priced at £1.50 each

I already feaured Fluorescent Pink (which I love) on a NOTD so if you'd like to see that on I've left the post link underneath. I actually don't like pearl pink at all. I tried it on the other night and needed four coats to build it up. I took it off straight away and forgot to take a picture. Its great if you like clear nail polish with just a hint of colour.


Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 In Rosy Beige
Priced at £1.50

I don't really wear foundation so I'm a huge tinted moisturiser fan. I really like this one but think I would prefer it in a different colour as this one made me feel a little orange. It also feels a little like oranges which i love! It also added to the shine on my face so I needed to use a powder (I used Elfs pressed powder).



Studio Matte Lip Colour In Tea Rose
Priced at £3.50

MACS snob has been my favorite for about a year now and this has very nearly knocked it off the top! I was a little worried about it to begin which as I'd bought a Barry M lip crayon before which I hated and this has a similar texture. I will definitely be buying these in a few different colours.



Creme Lipstick In Deep Warm Pink
Priced at £1.50

I think this looks a little more coral on rather than pink. I haven't made my mind up on this yet.



Wet Gloss Lash and Brow Clear Mascara Crystal
Priced at £1.50

I haven't yet used the mascara part on this yet but am thinking of used it as a 'base' to my black mascara. I really like the brow gloss though think it works alot better without an eyebrow filler.






Eyebrow Lifter and Filler In Ivory/Light
Priced at £3.50

I was quite disappointed in the state of the eyebrow filler! Okay so its not TOO bad but i expect to recieve a product in perfect condition. This had the top missing as you can see and it wasn't even stuck to the top of the lid! I'm also unsure of this product, the eyebrow filler is quite heavy and messy and they highlighter isn't too easy to blend in.




Eyeliner In Black
Priced at £3.00

I've only tried it out once but don't like it at all so far. I tried applying it and it hardly showed up! I'm going to try applying it to my lower lashline and see if I have more luck.

  1. I absolutely love Elf! Thank you for these reviews, it's always handy to see what other people think of their products!

    I bought about 6 make-up brushes from Elf for £13 a few weeks ago... you just can't go wrong with that!

    Happy Monday!

  5. These reviews were so helpful. I would have probably gone for the eyebrow filler but it just doesn't look great, and I would have probably avoided lip products because I think you can tell when they are cheap but the matte colour looks very nice!
