E.L.F Makeup Haul #2

IMG_4320 copy

If you didn’t know already i love E.L.F makeup. I think this makeup brand so underrated, the amount of times people have asked me what the brand is. I look at them astonished, people really don’t know what their missing out on. So we all know i love a great bargain and last week Elf tempted me with their sale once again.. I got all these beauty essentials for just £21. I was in need on some new makeup for my two holidays coming up in the summer so i opted to go for cosmetics that i think are perfect for my makeup travel bag.

Straight into my Haul i just have to firstly show you what i got free. Yes FREE!! Elf gave everyone who spent over £20 in the sale section an extra treat.. a mysterious collection. This collection is worth at least £15 and i decided to go for the Diva collection. I had a little idea of what i was getting, diva? Sparkles, glitter and bright colors? Well i think i did get just that. I cant wait to use the waterproof eyeliner, it’ll be great to see if it is long lasting! The HD blush is a totally new experience for me, blush has always been in powder form whereas this one is applied through a pump and it appears liquid until you smooth into skin it becomes a matte powder – amazing!

  • 1 x Black Waterproof Eyeliner Crayon
  • 1 x HD Blush in ‘diva’
  • 1 x Long lasting lustrous Eyeshadow in ‘celebration’
  • 1 x Jumbo Lip gloss Stick in ‘pink umbrellas’

So now what i actually bought. These two little gems were just £1.98 each! Bronzer is a must have for holiday i use it on my cheeks and also sometimes as eye shadow – may as well make the most out of the shade. I loved the look of the blusher and thought it seemed very similar to a MAC blush. I’m so pleased with the blush! It adds a perfect tone to my cheeks and looks very natural. I’m yet to try the bronzer but i am expecting it to be just as good as the blush.

  • 1 x Baked Bronzer in ‘Maui’
  • 1 x Baked Blush in ‘Rich Rose’

I love a good lipstick and these two beauties were just a £1 each! The lipstick feels very soft on the lips with the mineral effect. My lips feel soft and moisturized even after the lipstick has disappeared. I decided to go for two pink shades with it being summer as i normally tend to go for red or purple. I absolutely love the first lipstick (party pink) in both images. It’s such a pretty pink color on the lips with a slight corally tone. Whereas the other lipstick (runaway pink) is more of a nude natural lip pink.

  • 1 x Party Pink Mineral Lipstick

This is my second tinted moisturizer (£2.25) from Elf, i loved the first one so i knew i needed to buy another one for holiday. I decided to go for a slightly darker shade due to me hopefully having a tan before i go away. This tinted moisteriser so great on my skin. It adds a little glow to my face and sometimes i would use this rather than foundation. The spft 20 is a bonus too so i would wear this through the day so my skin is protected to but looks good too – hopefully. And i thought 98p for a liquid eyeliner is amazing right? The one i have now is a felt tip is starting to dry up so  i thought i would get a liquid version before it runs out to take with me.

  • 1 x Tinted moisteriser spft 20 in ‘beige’
  • 1 x Black Liquid Eyeliner

Looks can be deceiving, this Elf Master Collection i was expecting to be big but it’s actually a really cute small box. It’s so light too so it’s quite easily a travel makeup box. This is the best bargain of all i think, its worth £35 and it was in the sale for £10.50.. It has 84 eye shadow shades, 36 lip gloss shades, 6 blush shades, 4 concealer shades, 4 shimmer cream shades, 4 bronzer shades and even a couple of brushes!! Ive really enjoyed using this since i got it, trying all the lip glosses and the bronzers. The bronzers i think are great shades for contouring and the concealer shades have been perfect for hiding little pimples on my face.

What do you think of my ELF Haul? Did you receive the mystery collection too?
