Mini ELF Haul

I ordered from ELF late in the afternoon on Monday and my package arrived this morning!
Big thumbs up ELF!
Here's what I got
 So as you can see, I only bought three things.
From L-R:

ELF Matte Lipcolour in Natural
"This convenient jumbo sized lip pencil creates exact colour application. The pigment rich colour glides on effortlessly and provides long lasting matte colour. The enriched vitamin A, C & E formula moisturizes and hydrates lips for all day comfort."
I actually own two other of these in Tea Rose & Praline which I got from a blog sale. I got it in Natural because one of my favourites Youtubers of all time Becca who is pretty much always ordering from ELF (Check her out here) said that in her everyday makeup products, she applies this and then puts Natural Collection's Lipstick in Apple Blossom over it and it just looks like such a good colour!

ELF Studio Stipple Brush
"This Taklon brush can be used with wet or dry products. Be a professional makeup artist and create a flawless look with this e.l.f studio brush! Creates a flawless airbrushed look. Perfect for adding definition to cheekbones or highlighting with soft layers."
The reason why I bought this is because I'm sick of using my L'oreal Roll on foundation brush and I've heard that this is good for applying foundation/whatever to make your makeup look flawless and airbrushed.

ELF Makeup Mist & Set
"Keep your makeup staying in place all day with a radiance boosting invisible hold. Spray on after makeup application to set makeup in place or during the day for a quick touchup to refresh. The invigoration mist moisturizes and soothes the skin with key ingredients Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C & E."
Once again, Becca had literally just purchased this a few weeks ago or so and has been raving about it saying that it does literally hold your makeup in place for the whole day. I was sold there and then.

I'm hoping to order a few more pieces from ELF once when they get one of their items back in stock which I so desperately want need in my life.

I'm just kinda gutted that they've increased their prices quite dramatically, especially their mineral lipstick range which was £3.50 and is now a flipping fiver! If worse comes to worse, I'll buy some of the more expensive stuff here over in America.

Have you tried any of these or any of their other products?
What are your thoughts about them?

  2. I do like most ELF products but I've not tried any of these. I have got quite a few of their brushes. I think they're brilliant value.

    Like MUA, I think they're great budget products.
