elf Mineral Lipsticks Review

July 2, 2014
elf-lipsticks

I picked up three of the Mineral Lipsticks from the elf clearance recently, and one of the first things that struck me, was how sexy the packaging was! I am very keen on elf packaging as a whole, especially their Studio line which is often encased in beautifully curved black casings. These lipsticks were no exception and look absolutely stunning (and that’s before I’d even taken the lids off). I have a fair few elf lipsticks already but I’ve never…

Elf Studio Cream Blush Review

June 10, 2014
cream-blush

I’ve really wanted to try the elf studio Cream Blush pots for ages, so when they were in their recent clearance sale I was overjoyed! I picked out “flirt” which is bright pink and “tease” which is more of a peach/russet colour. When I pulled these out of their boxes, the first thing I noticed was how big the pots were. They are literally the size of my palm and packed with a lot of product. The consistency was quite…

Elf Clearance Haul Part 2

June 7, 2014
elf-haul-1

  It happened again – well actually no, this happened pre “accidental shopping haul” which is why I felt so guilty about going shopping, knowing that I had already ordered a box of goodies from elf. For those that didn’t know, one of their latest deals was a free “Mystery Collection” (worth £15) when you spent £20 in the clearance section, as well as free p&p. What actually happened, is Gemma asked me whether or not she should go ahead…

Elf Clearance Haul & Swatches

ELF Eyes Lips Face Clearance Haul

  Yes I went shopping again, but as I did it in my pyjamas does it really count? My bank balance says so. However thankfully this massive haul came at a very purse friendly price of £20ish, ELF prices are low even at the full whack, but with a huge clearance sale and a free gift I definitely got more than my moneys worth! Here are my swatches and first impressions of the haul, as well as the contents of…

Elf Waterproof Eyeliner Pen

December 4, 2013

As mentioned in my HD Blush post here, I found a few treats hidden away that I had completely forgotten about. The Elf Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in black was one of them. I think I bought this before I discovered Eyeko, so when I found it still packaged I was sceptical after using such a great product already, but I dived straight in there and applied this a few days ago. It’s very black unlike some pen’s I’ve tried where…

Elf HD Blush

November 29, 2013

You know you have a serious makeup addiction, when you forget about unopened products for months. I have a little box, that I keep packaging in, for reviewing purposes obviously. Alas, I had a nose in there and to my absolute delight I found two unopened elf products! One of them was the Elf HD Blush in “Headliner”. I’d wanted this for ages and had completely forgotten that I had bought it on an earlier haul. I hadn’t even opened…

Pants’ top 5 festival life savers for Summer 2013

September 15, 2013

  Well festival season is officially over. Dakesis played Sunkfest and The New Disorder Festival, which were great when it comes to prolonging the post festival blues. Unfortunately, it’s now miserable outside and we are almost half way through September! With so many memories from this year already what better way to reflect, than to think of all the scrummy products I got to try out whilst in a tent with significantly less access to things that make me look…

September most wanted!

September 11, 2013
Shut-up-and-take-my-money

  The changing of the season always brings with is a whole bunch of new releases, and for some reason this time a lot of them are things that want to empty my bank account!   First up Rockateur from Benefit. Er hello Benefit. Please stop making things that I want as my purse is very empty and I attribute most of that to your shiny pretty things! I’ll admit the rose gold shimmer of Rockateur is not exactly the…

Elf haul part 1 – Pants

July 22, 2013

Following Gemma’s haul, I thought it only fair to show off my half of our glorious “accidental” but perfectly justified retail therapy purchases. I jumped at the chance of slinging the mineral primer into the basket, as with the Kabuki (I’ve been lusting after these for so long now). The others I had absolutely no need for (except maybe the brush Shampoo) I just simply wanted them, and will be looking forward to trying them all out! I am especially…

Elf haul part 1 – Gemma

July 17, 2013

  I accidentally talked Amie into ordering a massive Elf haul with me on one of their frequent 50% off days recently and here’s what I chose!     Mineral Infused Face Primer – Clear This has been on my wishlist for a very long time! I love a good primer and I’ve heard nothing but good things about this one! I’m also tempted by the green toned one at some point to deal with my awful red cheeks.  …
