Elf Haul

I am very excited to share my Eyes Lips Face or ELF haul with you all. I have tried ELF products before but this was my first time placing an order with them and I had such a great experience.


Mineral Pearls in Natural and Skin Balancing

Skin Balancing
I have wanted this product forever. I was only going to get the skin balancing color but decided the natural color was too pretty to pass up. This product provides a sheer wash of color from these radiant mineral pearls. These pearls are designed to compliment any skin tone. The Natural color will boost your natural radiance and the Skin Balancing color will give you a more even skin tone.

Mineral Booster in Sheer

This is a sheer powder ideal for all skin tones. The product absorbs excess oil and minimizes the appearance of fine lines and pores for a even finish. This powder can be worn alone or buffed over the mineral concealer and mineral foundation for extra staying power.

Mineral Eye Brightener in Buff

This product is supposed to diminish the appearance of dark shadows. This eye brightener is infused with chamomile, green tea, mulberry and vitamins to nourish, tighten and refresh the under eye area.

Makeup Removing Cloths

I bought this product because I love trying new make up wipes and if I don't like them, I use them to clean up swatches. These remover cloths are supposed to gently and easily clean the skin to remove all traces of makeup, dirt and even waterproof mascara (big claim). In this pack, you get 20 pre-moistened cloths. 

As I was ready to check out, I noticed ELF had a promo code for a free Mystery Bag. Here is what I got in my mystery bag.

Swatch of Heartbreaker
Pressed Mineral Eye Shadow in Heart Breaker

This eye shadow is a grey, sparkly purple color. It does look a little brownish in the picture. This eye shadow is very smooth in texture and looks like it will blend easily. I did notice some fallout when I did the swatch.

Swatch of liner

Mineral Waterproof Shadow Liner in Black

I understand that this product can be used as a liner or as a eye shadow. This product does have a good color pay off. This product also feels very creamy in texture and it glided across my skin when I swatched it. I'm not sure about it being waterproof as I haven't tested it enough to know.

Contour Brush

This eye shadow brush has domed synthetic bristles, meaning it will pick up a good amount of product ELF recommends using this brush to add depth to the lash line and the corner of the eye. I however, think this is going to be the perfect crease brush because it is small enough.

Swatch of Superstar

HD Blush in Superstar

This blush looks like a very pretty coral color in the bottle. When I swatched this blush it felt creamy and was very easy to blend. This product is pigmented, so a little will go a long way! I really like that this product has a pump, which makes it easier to control how much product comes out.

Swatch of Flirt

 Hypershine Gloss in Flirt

This product is a very shiney gloss. This gloss is not overly pigmented but it also is not sheer, it is perfectly in the middle.  I think this gloss will be perfect for those no makeup-makeup days or for adding just the right amount of color to the lips. I find that this gloss is not overly sticky either.  I haven't tried using this gloss over a lipstick yet.

Nail polish in Bubble Gum Pink

I have yet to try this product but it is supposed to be a chip resistant formula that provides long lasting color and shine. This product is also supposed to have a quick dry formula that gives a perfect application every time.

Mineral Mist

I was the most excited about this product. This mist is supposed to replenish and boost the skin. This product is made with a blend of Witch Hazel, Rosemary, Chamomile, Honeysuckle, Aloe and Vitamin B which work together to balance and enhance the skin. This mist is supposed to help rehydrate dry skin or to refresh makeup throughout the day. I did spray this product on my wrist and it felt very smooth and fresh afterwards.

That is everything I purchased for ELF. What are your favorite items from ELF?

Stay beautiful
