Now, let's get to the conclusion of my haul sent to me by e.l.f. last month for free or what I like to call "Christmas in July". Check marked goodies in the pic below are what I've covered already HERE and those labeled 1 to 6 are what I'm covering in this post.
1. e.l.f. Essential Hypershine Gloss Box Set
|$5 - Color: Summer Ready [BUY]|
I have an issue with my lip gloss always vanishing. I swear there is some lip gloss leprechaun who goes around janking gloss from girls. As you can imagine, I don't like to fork over a lot of money for gloss since it's always disappearing (I'm looking at you leprechaun).
This set is the perfect price at only $1 a stick, plus, I really love their light shimmery shade on me because I normally wear pretty heavy eyes. The last thing you want is to look like a lady of the night with heavy make-up on your eyes and lips.
My hands down, all-time fave lip gloss is MAC's lipglass, but e.l.f.'s hypershine gloss comes in at second place thanks to the pretty color and perfect price. It's not as long lasting as MAC lipglass, but definitely gets the job done and looks very similar.
2. e.l.f. Essential Waterproof Eyeliner Pen
|$1 in black - [BUY]|
I feel like I'm cheating on my imaginary boyfriend when I type this sentence, but I actually liked e.l.f.'s eyeliner pen. I'm not saying I like it better because it's differen't since it's more of a liquid, but I do like it a lot. The pen is very hard to apply to your lower lashline but it is GREAT for winging out eyeliner à la Lauren Conrad style.
Watch this video to see how to achieve the winged look. It's very easy to do, I've been rockin' this look for years:
|$3 in sheer - [BUY]|
I dab a little bit on each eyelid and use my finger to blend. It goes on completely sheer and gives you a nice smooth pallette to work with. It's now a staple in my make-up routine.
|$3 in Charcoal - [BUY]|
|$1 - [BUY]|
6. e.l.f. Essential Brightening Eye Color
|$1 - [BUY]|
The only thing I got in my haul that I would probably never buy again. The compact is extremely small and literally I've used the lightest all-over base color less than a handful of times and it's practically gone.
The browns were pretty colors and they do stay fairly long, but I would much rather prefer spending $3 on their professional studio single eyeshadow, which I LOVE and am definitely buying in more colors.
So there you go bargainistas, the conclusion of my e.l.f. haul. "But wait, there's more!" ...
I had to order some bridesmaids pumps via Target online on Friday, and you get free shipping when you spend $50. Naturally, I threw some more e.l.f. merch into the ole online shopping cart.
The following products will be reviewed soon, so hold onto your panties:
elf Studio Glitter Gloss in Glam Guava - $3
(recommended by my fellow cat lady, Carol)
e.l.f Lilac Petal Shimmering Facial Whip - $1
e.l.f. Studio Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter in light - $3
e.l.f. Essential Beauty School Beauty Book in Smoky - $5
At the rate I'm going, I'm going to run out of e.l.f. merchandise to try, but I hope that day never comes.
Is there any e.l.f. product I have yet to cover that you love?
Obviously I love me some e.l.f. and have a slight addiction. HELP.
