My ELF Purchases!

ELF is a brand which I have heard loads of reviews about and that they're products are great value for money. After buying the ELF Studio Powder brush (post here) and loving it, I thought I would purchase a few more items. 

ELF Studio Eyebrow Kit - I had been wanting to get an eyebrow kit for so long, and had so many on my list to try. I decided to get this one first as I had heard great reviews and its a fab price, only £3.75.

I am so pleased with this little kit, it does exactly what I want so perfectly and easily. I can define my brows without them looking fake and it allows my brows to look natural, as you can see the hairs through the product. In the kit there is a wax, powder and a teeny tiny-brush.

There are many different ways to use the product - here are 3:

            • You can apply the wax first and then add the powder on top.
            • You can apply the powder and then add the wax second.
            • You can mix the wax and powder together and then apply both at the same time.

I tend to do a mixture of the 3 depending on what I feel like, but if i'm in a rush I usually just mix the two products and whack it on! I am currently using the Real Techniques angled brow brush to apply the product to my brows, but I want to get a thinner angled brush to have more control, so my brows look more precise.

ELF Studio Makeup Mist & Set - I decided to get this product as a test to see if I would like setting sprays.

ELF say: "Keep your makeup in place all day with a radiance boosting invisible hold. Spray on after makeup application to set makeup in place or during the day for a quick touch-up to refresh."

I really like this product, I feel it sets my makeup really well and it always freshens me up when I spray it throughout the day. However I am not sure if I agree that it keeps my makeup in place all day. I feel that it does set and prolong the wear of my makeup but not for a noticeable amount of time. I will continue to use this product as I like that it sets my makeup and gives me a dewy look.

ELF Blush in the shade Peachy Keen - I love this blush so much. I was just browsing through all the products on the ELF website and as soon as I saw this colour it was straight in my basket.

I really like peach shades for blusher and just knew I had to try this out. Peachy Keen is a gorgeous peachy orange shade. I find that a lot of peach colours tend to be more pink based, whereas this is definitely more orange toned.

 The formula of this blush is really lovely, it's soft and slightly powdery. I use the Real Techniques Blush Brush to apply this product and I find that you can easily lightly dust it on but also really build it up for a more intense look.

I am really loving ELF products and can't wait to get some more. Also I just found out ELF are opening a store in Cardiff - eeek exciting! I am so looking forward to visiting it :)

  1. The blush looks a gorgeous colour but the eyebrow kit is my fave! It looks just like the benefit version but obviously a fraction of the price! What are the brushes like?xxx

    1. It is beautiful :) oh yes the eyebrow kit is amazing! definetly worth getting :) The brushes aren't the best and I don't use them when filling in my brows in the morning.. but they are absolutely fab for touch ups on the go or when travelling! xxx

  2. ah the brow kit is amazing!! id pick it over my Benefit Brow Zings any day :) ..im ridiculously excited to visit the store too, although it may be a dangerous decision (so long wages ha) xx
