Elf Haul ♥

I have been promising this post for a couple of weeks now, so here it is!
 I have been looking for a new contouring brush for a while and this one is perfect, it isn't the softest brush I have ever used but it works fine for me.
 At the time I placed my order from Elf it was free postage over £20 so I put these £1.50 lipsticks in my basket just as extras to get free postage, I don't really like the orange shade it wasn't the colour I thought it was going to be but I might use it some day..? The lipsticks are very rubbery feeling but the colour pay off is fairly good. For £1.50 you get what you pay for.
I got this shimmer lip gloss free as they had a promotional code you could to enter at the checkout. It is quite sticky but it lasts an hour or so which is good. I don't tend to wear lip gloss as I don't like the "hair stuck to my lips in the wind' look.
I have been looking for a good eye primer for so long, most primers I have used crease my eye shadow by the end of the day. However, this one is great! It doesn't crease, it allows me to blend evenly and it doesn't cause my eye shadow to lighten once applied on top. I would highly recommend you try it for yourself!
Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzer - St Lucia £3.75
 I am so pleased with this blush and bronzer duo, it is the perfect colour for my pale skin. I have tried so many bronzers recently and none of the ones I have tried are the right colour for my skin tone. I think this colour of bronzer is perfect for anyone, it is buildable and very very pigmented. I only use a small amount on my Elf Bronzing Brush to contour my face and I build it up where it is needed. The blush is a really pretty shade of shimmery pink which blends in nicely above the bronzer on the apples of my cheeks. I also love the packaging, it looks very like the duo's you can get from Nars!
Elf High Definition Powder - Sheer £6.00
I finally pruchased Elf's HD Powder! Which has turned into my new favourite powder, I have been using Rimmel Stay Matte and Rimmel Clear Complexion powders for years but seeing as the weather here in the UK turned so hot recently I decided I needed something a bit lighter to go on top of my BB cream or foundation through the day. This powder does the job well, it is very light and makes my skin feel soft and not cakey after I have applied it onto my face, it keeps my face shine free for a while although I do need a couple of touch ups throughout the day.

I hope you enjoyed this post, have you tried any of these products? xo
