ELF purchases

It's a typical British day today, in terms of weather, so the lighting in every room of my house is terrible. I had to go outside and freeze my bottom off to take these photos!

Mechanical Eyelash Curlers £1.50, Studio Powder Brush £3.50, Studio Complexion Brush £3.50

All of these are repurchases. I use them every single day and just love them. Every one of my ELF orders have included these brushes!

Mineral Booster in Sheer £3.50, Studio Eyebrow Kit in Medium £3.50

The Eyebrow Kit is also a repurchase and a staple in my routine. I wanted the large Mineral Booster (you get 17.8g for £5!), but it was out of stock, so I settled with the smaller pot. I just needed a new powder that would control my shine.

Mineral Moisturising Lip Tints in (top to bottom) Berry and Blush £3.50 each

I wear lip stains, matte lip creams and tinted lip balms, so was intrigued by these. So far, I like them. You only get 2.8g of product though. The price is not an excuse for this because Natural Collection lipsticks are £1.99 and you get a considerable amount of product.

Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint in Pink, Brightening Eye Colour in Teal Dream, Mineral Bamboo Lip Brush 

If you spent over £10, you received a Mystery Bag worth at least £10. I'm glad I received another Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint, and it wasn't a shade I already had! The eyeshadow quad is... meh. I'm giving it to my mum because I rarely wear eyeshadow, and if I do, it's of a taupe shade. I don't use lip brushes, so I'm going to see what else I can use the brush for.

Mineral Moisturising Lip Tints in Pink, Blush and Berry

Here are some arm swatches of the Mineral Moisturising Lip Tints. I will be reviewing these properly and will include lip swatches. The Pink shade appears quite orange here, but it's definitely more pink on your lips.


The trouble with having a lot of animals is that they can get in the way when you're taking product photos! This little monkey would not stop wiggling his bum and pouncing on the products. Also, one of my dogs wanted to play and kept dumping her toys on the wall.

  7. I've yet to actually order anything from elf, but it's so ridiculously affordable I think I'll have a browse today! Have you tried their blushes as that's what I'm in need of most at the moment...I'm so happy I found your blog as I'm on quite a strict student budget and can't afford all the high end make up other blogs talk about, definitely following now! xxx

    1. Thank you for following! No, I haven't tried their blushes yet because I have too many as it is! But I'm tempted by their mineral ones. I may have to add one (or two) to my next order! x
