ELF Haul

I did a mini make up haul from ELF (Eyes, Lips and Face). They have extremely affordable make up. I ordered from them once before in high school and the only thing I remember was getting a lip gloss that was super sticky. So after reading lots of reviews I gave them another chance. 

I bought their.....

 Total Face Brush for $1

For $1 it's not bad. It sheds but only just one strand each use and it doesn't hold the product great, but it was a buck. So not bad...

Eye Widener in White for $1

This product is terrible. Thank heavens it was only a buck. I apply it to my water line but it just crumbles because it's way too soft. When I can get it to apply it doesn't stay on. Although having the sharpener in the cap is nice -- but the cap doesn't stay on when I keep it in my make up bag.

Super Glossy Lip Shine in Malt Shake $1

I buy lots of pink and nude lip colors so online this color looks great. 

This is what it looked like when I got it in the mail;

Uhhh...... It's a lot darker than what I expected but I actually really love it. I avoid red and dark lip shades because I'm just not comfortable in them but in my VoxBox I got a NYC Liquid Lip Shine in a color very similar to the ELF one (the package didn't say what shade it was so I have no idea) but I really love both of these on. Neither are sticky and are very smooth with a great smell. The ELF one lasts a very long time which I love! I will definitely be buying more of these but who knows what colors I will be getting! =/

Brightening Eye Color in Ethereal $1 (do you love how everything I have mentioned so far has only been $1!) 

I am not brave in my eye shadows at all -- I always go with natural colors -- so this is great for me. The brown color (top right) is more grey, I like it but it does not show very well. I feel I have to apply a lot in order for it to show. But all the others show very nicely. The bottom right is much more peachy and the bottom left is a little more orange looking. The white is very glittery, but I like it. 

Zit Zapper $1


Now I had low expectations of this product, but the reviews were good and hey, it's only a buck. The packaging is great. Super easy to apply and spill proof. And... it works! When I got it I had a big zit coming in on my nose. One of the those ones that hurts a lot. Ya know? But within two days it was gone! Zap! 

Mineral Foundation $5 in light

The shade for this one was great! Unlike the lip shine. Thank heavens. But it is extremely light coverage. Extremely. So I feel like I have to apply and apply and apply to get a good cover, and I still use cream foundation underneath. So not bad, not great.

Cream Eye Liner in Black $3

The product it's self seems nice but the brush is terrible... So I am on the hunt for another brush. Most of the comments show customers using another tool to apply it, so at least I'm not the only one. 

In another order which is on it's way I bought;

Mineral Eye shadow Primer $3

I don't own any Eye Shadow Primers and I feel like any eye shadow I use is pretty much gone by the end of the day. So I figured getting a primer might help. The reviews looked good so I'll review it once I get it!

Essential Professional Complete Set of 12 Brushes $12

I'll be honest. I don't own any brushes (other than the one from my first ELF order). And I'm cheap! So I wasn't willing to spend a lot on a set. The set has mixed reviews, which I wasn't surprised by considering the brush I currently have from them. The set includes;

  • Concealer Brush
  • Blush/Bronzer Brush
  • Foundation Brush
  • Blending Eye Brush
  • Smudge Eye Sponge
  • Eye Liner Brush
  • Total Face Brush
  • Defining Eye Brush
  • Eyelash & Brow Wand
  • Lip Defining Brush
  • Brow Comb & Brush
  • Eye Shadow Brush

I also bought an adorable cup from IKEA for $2.99 to keep them in! Hello! So cute!

Can't wait to get my brushes!

Also! If you are looking for adorable affordable frames, IKEA is the place to go! Both of these are $4.99. Whaaaatttt?!?
