Review on some ELF Goodies!

Hey All! .. I have recently been trying out some lovely goodies from ELF and I have to say that I have been so impressed by all of them and I definitely want to try more from them in future!

The first thing I want to mention is the ELF Studio Powder Brush, This is a large flat top brush with synthetic Taklon hairs, It can be used with wet or dry products.
. . .

-Creates a professional sculpted look
-Full coverage color
-Use for powder or blush for perfect contouring

This brush is fantastic! It only costs £3.50 and it is so, so soft! The bristles feel velvety smooth against the skin and I can't believe the quality for the price of it. ELF Say that you can use this for contouring, but I personally find it a little too large for that. I do however love to use it to apply my liquid foundation, It gives an airbrushed flawless finish that is so smooth. It's also really good for buffing in mineral and pressed powders.

Next up is something I had seen many times on various blogs and you tube videos, and it is one of the cream eyeshadow duos, I opted for Black Licorice.

. . .
A lovely black and silver cream eyeshadow which are perfect for using as a base under eyeshadow or for wearing alone. I'm not gonna lie, they do crease, but give me a creamy consistency eyeshadow that doesn't! I love these though, they sit well under a shadow to give that extra depth of colour. I also love the black slicked over the lid on it's own for a glossy smoky eye, it looks fab! The best thing about this is that it's only £1.50 and they are so many colour options!

. . .

Lastly, I tried one of their Therapeutic Conditioning Lip Balm's. I tried the Blackberry flavour and it tastes delicious! This is a really lovely moisturising lip balm that I like to put on before bed, It can feel slightly greasy, but that's because of how hydrating it is. When I go to bed with this on, I can still feel it on my lips in the morning. The scent it lovely, and it adds a nice colourless shine to my lips,. This is only £1.50 too!

Products Mentioned Were PR Samples.
