elf is great. The quality of their products is fab considering they are such an affordable brand! A few months ago, I placed an order online and eagerly awaited the postman to bring me my goodies…
The first of my favourites is the Eyelid Primer which is an absolute bargain at only £1.95; I cannot believe the price of this seeing as it is awesome! I have really oily eyelids (sorry, a bit grim really!) which are prone to creasing, however this is my new best friend as it prevents any sign of creasing and can make my eyeshadow last for almost a whole day! I have the colour ‘Sheer’ which is a pinky skin colour that evens out any discolouration on the lids. You need a very small dab of product from the dofut applicator as it blends out very easily, so a little really does go a long way!
Next up is the Baked Blush in ‘Pinktastic’ which is a reasonable £3.95. I don’t exactly use this as a blush but as a highlighter because it is quite sheer but ‘glowy’ I would say! It is mainly golden with hints of pink which make it look really natural on the skin. I adore using this across the tops of my cheekbones and sometimes over a pop of blush to liven up my cheeks, especially in the summer. When the product catches the light, it looks gorgeous so I would highly recommend this. I apply this using my elf Studio Stipple Brush (which I am about to mention below…) as it picks up the perfect amount of product.
Lastly, it’s the elf Studio Stipple Brush. It has been one of my favourite brushes to use recently as it can do everything: blend foundation, concealer, cream blush, powder blush, highlighter and powder! This is a proper multi-task tool and a must for beauty enthusiasts! As I said above, it is particularly fantastic for highlighter with it’s soft bristles meaning it picks up just enough to add a healthy glow. When it comes to concealer and foundation, it gives a flawless, light coverage which is perfect for summer.
I hope this post has given you an insight into the wonders of elf (if you hadn’t already ventured onto their addictive website) and perhaps persuaded you to do a spot of shopping?
