Haul: ELF

Sunday, 7 August 2011
Hiya,

I took advantage of the 50% off offer that was on a few weeks ago. This will be one of (I have one more coming up soon) my last hauls in a long time. I am planning on doing a Project 10 pan, although i am not sure how successful it will be!

I picked up a brush holder; my brush collection seems to be getting larger and I was finding difficulty in fitting them into my smaller holder.
I wanted to try the Matte Finisher which is a new product by ELF. It looked quite intriguing.
I have yet to try it, but after reading good reviews, my hopes are quite high!

I also wanted to stock up on another brush cleaner- my last one is almost done.

ELF has recently come out with some new products which I was quite excited to try. One of them is the set of three eye primers.


I used the champagne one once and was surprised at how well it worked. It definitely prevented my eyeshadow from creasing.

As you may know, I love the blushes from the Studio line. I had been wanting to try Peachykeen for the longest time. With 50% off, I decided to go ahead and get it.

I am actually pretty disappointed. It barely shows up on my skin. I might just give it away to a friend/relative.

I've never used lip liners in the past. I purchased a NYX Lip Pencil a few months back and have been hooked since. They are great bases for making lipstick last longer!

This lip liner is from the mineral line in Rose. It is a very pretty shade, almost neutral so it will go quite well with most every day lipsticks that I wear.

Lastly, there was a new brush from the Studio line. It is an eye liner brush which is the kind that I like to use. I used to use angled brushes but recently have been liking the usual, longer bristled eye liner brushes when I want a thin line.

The bent shape helps to position the brush properly and I find it quite helpful.

Overall, I was very pleased with this haul; ELF is a very affordable brand which, although is sometimes hit and miss in quality, I have found that it is very rare that I will have a complaint from the Studio line.
