Elf Haul

Hello lovelies, hope you all had a happy Valentine’s Day- I certainly did! Before Christmas, I received my first ELF haul (shame on me, I KNOW)! So here are my reviews for each product.






Daily Brush Cleaner- £2.45
I have never tried a brush cleaner before and my thoughts on this are that it looks nice and is cheap. I noticed a fragrance when I sprayed the cleaner. Maybe a floral or fruity fragrance? It does do a good, quick job after a few uses. But if you actually wanted to clean your brushes every day, I would recommend a more expensive product, as it would be worth it.
Overall- 6/10



False Lashes Dramatic Lash Kit- £1.50
I actually don’t wear falsies for personal reasons but I shall be giving these away later on in the year.



Mineral Moisturizing LiptintSPF 8  in Berry- £3.50
I actually didn’t buy this but it came in the box- bargain! I have heard that ELF are known for getting orders wrong! I’m so glad I received one! They are creamy and easy to aply and does soothe my lips!
Overall- 10/10







Hypershine Lip Gloss in Vixen- £1.50
This picture is the lip gloss applied over my lip tint. This lipgloss is smooth, not sticky and has good staying-power. But Contains paraben and mineral oil and there is no colour pay-off on pigmented lips (not even sheer).
Overall- 7.5/10





Nourishing Cuticle Pen- £1.50
This cuticle pen contains Avocado and Almond Oils, along with Vitamins E, A, C, Pro-Vitamin B5 and Aloe and according to the Elf cosmetics website, all these ingredients are supposed to "Relieve dry nails and flaky cuticles."  I actually didn’t  know what to expect but as I have been using this for four months now, I have definitely seen a difference with my cuticles and definitely provides a healthy, nourished, smooth look!
Overall- 10/10




Eye Shadow Brush- £1.50
This is such a good eyes hadow brush for this price! Supper affordable and quality is great! I effortlessly swiped over my eyelids and could blend colours smoothly. This brush definitely gets the job done.
Overall- 10/10




Concealer Brush- £1.50
Although this brush is very small, it is very cheap, firm, precise and can be used for concealer, eyeliner, inner corner highlight, brows, etc.  This is a must have brush for my collection.
Overall- 9/10 




Tone Correcting Concealer in Light Beige- £1.50
I thought this might be a little orange at first but once applied to my skin, it blended into something manageable. I would recommend this for a back-up! This concealer is also lightly scented.  It reminds me of oranges, but definitely citrusy.
Overall- 9/10




Brightening Eye Liner in ‘Exotic Green’ and ‘Teal’ - both £1.50
The pigmentation in these eyeliners were very faint unless I applied three or more swatches onto my hand, but what do I expect at the price?! Great price and comes with a sharpener. They don’t irritate my eyelids and are very soft!
Overall- 8/10
(LEFT AND MIDDLE)

Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Plum Passion- £1.00
I bought this eyeliner because of the bright colour and cheap price! It is creamy and the colour does show up. It does not smudge but fades through the day. This eyeliner is not for use in the waterline as it just disappears the next second! The pencils have a sharpener cap that makes it easy to sharp it instantly and the tip of a specific color does not get messed or mixed up with the remains of other sharpened colors.
Overall- 7/10
(RIGHT)




Swatches-
TOP- Teal
MIDDLE- Exotic Green
RIGHT- Plum Passion

  1. Hmm, I might look into that concealer brush! I've been needing a new one - mine is Ecotools and far too big for little blemishes.
