E.L.F. Haul

I needed some e.l.f. products that I couldn't get in the stores so I made an order. I think I buy from e.l.f. monthly ;)  here are the things I got....
Top row: Complexion Perfection Powder which I think is excellent for a highlight..and on a variety of skin tones. Next: Shielding Hydro Tint w/ SPF 15... it's a nice sheer cover moisturizer with a tint for when you don't want to wear a foundation & it's great it has the SPF. Next: The Cool Bronzer, this is a fabulous Bronzer! More details below! 
Bottom row: Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Coffee. I LOVE this product from them and I could not find it anywhere in the stores in this color.. all I ever see is Black, I really needed a brown. A Foundation Brush, pretty standard we know what they're like. I will say this I'm beginning to love e.l.f.'s brushes more & more every day. Next: A Creme Eyeshadow Duo in Sugar Cookie. I love to keep an arsenal of creme shadows, they double fabulously as an eye shadow base for certain looks.

Next I got a Palette: The 32 Piece Eyeshadow Collection. One of their newer products which I thought was really cute. I actually got a few of these and plan to use them as gifts.. the holidays are coming! I used it last night on a client and I like it very much. I've often said that e.l.f.'s palettes seem to have shadows with deeper pigment then the singular ones and this palette continues that thread, although to get optimal pay off you need to use a shadow base of some sort.

Ok. About the Cool Bronzer. When I got my order it was the only product in the package that was broken. I was devastated! Because.. this bronzer is FABULOUS!! I absolutely love this bronzer. I wear it without foundation  or when I want a more dramatic look over foundation. It is truly matte and lasts a long time. I've used it on other people and it works on so many different skin tones. This has become a must in my collection. And every time I try to get it from Target it's sold out. That's why I had to order it. When I saw it came all broken up I almost cried lol! But! When I called  e.l.f. the exemplary customer service staff was pleasant and quick to offer to send me a new one... free of charge. It came in three days woohoo! It's so nice to have a positive experience with customer service.. some other company's should take notice that that's the way you treat customers okay MAC? Okay! Just sayin' ;) And no I don't work for e.l.f. and I buy everything with my own money. xoxo
Here's the Cool Bronzer before & after...


  1. Looks like you got some great thing. I have never tried E.L.F before. Its great that the shadow palette is so well pigmented!

  2. Their stuff is great Alicia, Certain pieces are staples in my collection. The Studio Line is fabulous... give them a shot it's very affordable

  3. hey lovely !
    i will be getting some Elf stuff this week end and ordering a few NYX goodies too ! cant wait !
    thanks for all your reviews and info on these products ..I will think of you as i shop !

  4. Wow, some of these things aren't on the elf website i use. That palette looks brill (hopefully they sell it in England soon!). I love the ELF brushes too, i only have like 3 but they've all been brilliant, once i start working i'm deffo gonna get more :D I'm going to go and get that bronzer now as i've been scared to try it out incase it wasn't matte (i have a blush/bronzer duo from ELF and they were both glittery!). Great haul! x
