e.l.f Haul

I've never tried any of the e.l.f products before but I've been reading a lot of good things about the products so I felt I had to try it out. I have to say despite reading good reviews of their products, mainly from their studio line, I was still sceptical about the quality but the products are cheap so there's not really a lot to lose in trying them. So I went on to e.l.f and I ordered a few things. I only purchased 1 thing from the studio line. I was more interested in testing the £1.50 products to see what the quality was like.

So I bought

* Studio Bronzer in Golden

* Mineral Lipstick in Nicely Nude
* Brightening Eyeliner in Ash

* Eyeliner Brush
* Tinted Moisturizer in Honey

* Natural Lash Kit
* Natural Radiance Blusher in Flushed

I'll be honest I didn't like everything I bought, but then you can't expect to like everything I suppose! The products I didn't like are:

- The tinted moisturizer - I absolutely hated this! It made my face look really oily (well oilier than it already is!) and It felt quite sticky too. It has a fragrance to it as well which I think you'll either love or hate. I didn't like the smell either, it reminds me of something but I really can't think what.
- The brightening eyeliner - I bought this in Ash because the Black was sold out, I'm quite boring and usually just stick with Black eyeliner this wasn't far off though nor was it too drastic for me! :) This cost £1.50 so I wasn't expecting it to be good and I didn't like it. I did however like the sharpener that came with it.

Out of everything I liked the Eyeliner Brush the best. I think it works really well for being so cheap. It probably won't last long and I haven't washed it so I don't know how well it will wash but for £1.50 you can't go wrong. Also I think the Blusher is really good for £1.50 too. It's a lovely colour and it applies really well.

The products I really wanted were the studio bronzer and the mineral lipstick. I do really like the bronzer it's highly pigmented. I did try and swatch it but my camera wouldn't pick up the colours properly. I wouldn't wear this bronzer in the day though personally I think it's a going out bronzer. The mineral lipstick as well is nice but for me it's not moisturizing enough. I have really dry lips and find that I have to wear Vaseline with this lipstick.

cute lil haul, ive never really heard of elf, and although many use it i had no idea of the pricing. So thanks for the review on the products, I really like the look of the lipstick and sounds like my kind of price, but like yourself i also suffer with dry lips

The prices are great and some of the products are really good quality. The basic range products are £1.50 and the studio range is between £3.50 and £6, with majority of products being £3.50 so not that expensive if you don't like it x
