Mini Elf Haul

Spending the weekend in Cardiff meant one thing; Taking a trip to the only E.L.F store in the UK. I was so excited and just couldn’t contain myself walking around the little store. Everything was so white and neatly organised! Having no previous expertise when it comes to E.l.f products, I was like a kid in a sweet shop trying out all of the shades and swatching everything in sight. I managed to restrain myself and come away with only three items – however I’m definitely going to have to make another cheeky online purchase! 

The first product I came away with was a product that I’ve heard a lot about – The beloved Daily Brush Cleaner. I’ve wanted this for so long and cannot wait to start using it and see how brilliant it actually is. It’s just one of those products that I know is going to become a ‘can’t-live-without’ type of thing. I’ll write a review up soon, once I’ve used it properly, but so far I’m loving it! It’s such a cheap alternative to buying a million different brushes and is so easy!

Secondly I picked up this gorgeous Nail polish in the colour ‘Party Peach’ It’s such a lovely vibrant orange and I can’t wait to get it on my nails. It also seems to have a lovely sheen / sparkle to it, without it being a glitter polish which is a big bonus in my books! Anything that looks as great as a glitter but doesn’t require all of that effort to get off is such a winner for me. I was told by Beki, that E.l.f nail paints are really good quality for the price and trying a couple in the store I can tell she’s going to be right about this. They dried so quickly and it wasn’t a pain to walk around with my hands out trying to dry the swatches! I can’t wait to get this on my nails!

Last but by no means least, I picked up this Matte Lip Colour in ‘Coral’. Beki said so many great things about these pencils that I just couldn’t leave without one. I’d seen something similar in NARS earlier in the day and just couldn’t decide whether to purchase it or not because of the hefty price tag, but in E.l.f there was no decision alike involved – just a decision on what shade to buy! In the end I opted for Coral, It’s such a lovely orangey-peachy-pink and looks so good on the lips. I love how the formula is really creamy too, it applies well and really is a great matte. I’ll definitely be popping a couple more of these onto my online basket shortly!

Have you ever tried any E.L.F products?

    They just got elf into a store in Australia and it is so cheap compared to other drugstore brands! I will have to give it a try. I'm thinking I might start with nail polish.
    I love the lip colour you bought though!
