Lets Get Elf-ie

Wednesday 13 October 2010

As you can see from my many, many ELF product hauls and posts I'm a bit of an ELF addict, and of course, today is no different. I've got a little haul for you, which is by no means as mahooosive as my previous hauls, as it only dented my bank balance by £8, hurrahhh!

The main reason for my order was to get a new Under Eye Concealer and Highlighter from the studio range as I've just run out of my old one, and realised I just couldn't live without it.

Of course, while ordering this I had a great excuse to pick up a few bits I'd been lusting after for a while...

ELF Shadow Brush (£1.50)
This little beauty has been recommended to me many a time and I have to say it really is a lovely brush for its tiny price tag. Although some of the bristles are slightly harsh, there is little to no fallout and it is perfect for packing on colour or even to blend it out! Definitely a fantastically cheap buy with good results- go for it!

ELF Lipstick in Classy (£1.50)
To tell the truth, I'm not exactly 'keen' on this lipstick. The formula is a bit mehh, and does not compare to ELF's range of beautiful mineral lipsticks, of which I own 3. The colour just isn't me, a bright blue toned pink, not quite as barbie pink as it appears in the picture. It just doesn't suit my yellow toned skin and almost looks a little like 'granny' lipstick to me, i.e. settles into lines and dries out your lips. Not a winner for me I'm afraid, but hey, for £1.50 who can complain!?

ELF Individual Lash Kit (£1.50)
I haven't had a chance to get to grips with these yet, but I brought them as it seems I am a false lash virgin! I'm waiting for a special occasion to whip these out and get fluttery lashes and I can't wait!

And while I'm at it, here's a few tings I picked up from Avon in an effort to heal my poor damaged hair...

Bodifying Foam (£2.50 on sale)
Not impressed with this one. I find it makes my hair a little sticky and crunchy and not particularly volumised as it claims. However, I have not used this product enough to totally disregard it.

Dry Ends Serum (£2.50 on sale)
This lovely serum makes my hair look shiny and soft when applied to the ends, but beware of putting it too close to the roots, looking like you plunged your head into grease is never a good look!

Reconstructive Mask (£3.00 on sale)
This reconstructive mask can just be viewed really as a thick conditioner, but it does make my hair noticeably softer and a little shinier when using it. However I used this product the week after I had tried my Tresemme Deep Conditioner, and this product really is disappointing after you have used that. If you would be interested in a full comparison of these two conditioners pop in a comment down below... :)

That's it for my hauling lately! Have a good week girlie's!


  1. Oh wow i've always wanted that eyeshadow brush, and individual lashes seem quite fun, as you can style it the way you want nd resuable!

  2. i love that elf brush, but give it time it has fallout like no other! i pick about 3 hairs out every time i use it x

  3. I agree, the formula of the Classy e.l.f lipstick is a bit off. None of the others are as bad, I just found the Classy one to be really quite drying. I apply a bit of lipbalm underneath it though and it seems to help.

  4. Hey I love Elf products...Great post!!!The lippie looks great.

  5. love your haul!i like the lippie on you:)

  6. Great buys! I'm loving ELF too since making my first order :) xx

  7. Gorgeous lipstick!
    & I'm loving elf at the moment - you get so much for your money :)

  8. Haha nothing can stop you hauling Hannah!! Love it!! The ELF bits look great xx

  9. Great haul! I really need to put an order in at ELF! Can't wait to hear how you get on with the hair products xx

  10. Nice haul!:D

    Classy is such a pretty shade, looks great on your skin tone!:D

  11. I'm not too keen on these lipsticks either, they scream "cheap" to me! I like the under eye concealer and the eyeshadow brush though! :) I'm a huge Elf fan myself!! :)

  12. The eyeshadow brush and single lashes look fab! I'm a big fan of the ELF Undereye Concealer too. I used to use YSL's Touche Eclat so it's great to find a product that I love more that's far, far cheaper! x

  13. Love the colour of that lipstick, i so want it.


  14. I followed your blog after seeing your little blog interview! Have to say it's been a brilliant read. Love that lipstick btw! x

  15. After all your ELF posts (which i love btw :), i need to try out some ELF! Nice haul, those lashes look so wispy & cute! xo
