e.l.f Haul/Review

Most of you reading this have probably heard of the brand e.l.f before. They provide a range of products at super affordable prices. The lovely people from the brand sent me a few pieces, and having never really dived to far into their products before, I was excited to try them out and let you all know what I think.

EX-tra Lip Gloss (Scott, Brian & Michael)
I'm assuming those are the names of the shades because that's what it said on the bottom of the packaging .... and I don't know how I feel about it; but on to the actual product. Overall I was impressed with these lip glosses, however with the lighter shades (Scott & Brain) I think you may need to use a lipliner to achieve a better coverage. Without one, these shades can be a bit streaky and tricky to put on. The darker shade however (Michael) goes on perfectly fine without anything else, and is such a beautiful colour!

A few things off the packaging about this cleaner. This exfoliating scrub contains Vitamin E purified water and the instructions say to use 1 - 2 times a week and allow three days between uses. So my thoughts on it? I can't say it's my favourite. The exfoliating 'bits' in the scrub are quite large (if that's how you would describe them) so I thought I was going to love the stuff, though unfortunately it wasn't my favourite. As I was rubbing it on my skin, I thought it felt pretty good, but I found after I used it and jumped out the shower my face didn't feel very clean and it really struggled to take off my makeup (even when it using it twice which I do with any cleanser when I have makeup on). So I tend to reserve using this stuff for days I've worn no makeup or I have to use another cleaner before or after using this. I feel there are better options out there, so I don't think I'd recommend this one.

This stuff claims to be smudge proof and long-lasting. I have to say this does have a nice, pigmented black colour which I love, however you need to be careful while waiting for this to dry. While it might be smudge proof once dry, it can very easily be bumped and ruined while drying, so it's best to give it a minute after you're done.

Baked Highlighter (Pink Diamonds)
This highlighter is infused with some good stuff (Vitamin E, sunflower, almond, jojoba and grape). This isn't one of those highlighters that will make you say 'wow' with one brush, it is certainly more of a subtle glow. You can however build it up, just note that, as it is pink coloured, the more you build up, the pinker it will look. This however can look great depending on what look you're going for.

What's your opinion?
