This is from a recent(ish) order I made with E.L.F.
Now I love E.L.F firstly (most of) the products are amazing I have never really had any bother with them - apart from some of the nail varnishes. The brushes are great, good quality and soo cheap! And in my experiences with ordering with them I have never had any bother with delivery. 

Here is what I bought...


I bought the Mineral 4 piece bamboo brush set which is £15 but I had mine for £12 with the 20% off code a while ago.

First thought "WOW THESE ARE SO SOFT" I thought the studio brushes were soft but these are something else. All I did for a while was brush the mini kabuki brush over my face. It is rather mini though but suits what I use it for (mineral foundation). Would recommend these brushes to anyone and they come with a travel case.

I also bought the Lip defining brush as we all know it is only £1.50, does the job :) so I am pleased.

Mineral Makeup

Mineral foundation  in light and Mineral concealer in light both £3.50. I wasn't sure if I would get on with these but I am actually surprised at the coverage you can get with these. For times when I just want a basic coverage I reach for this but when I need more coverage I put this over my liquid foundation as a setting powder. Same goes for the concealer. These are a great buy for the money.

Not really sure what to do with the blemish kit. I have watched numerous youtube videos and so far can gather its a setting powder that fights spots? Anyone have any light they can shed on this? 


Mineral lipstick in Ripe Rose which goes on a little darker on the lips and is rather long lasting, will be in my makeup bag for a long time. I also bought natural nymph but there is sooo many swatches out there already. I'm not 100% on how I will wear it yet as it is rather light! Both were £3.50.

I wanted a lipliner for ages and this one in peachy took my fancy. It is such a lovely peachy (haha) colour which looks slighty more orange than the photo shows. It is such a nice colour I tend to wear it as a lipstick with some vaseline over the top. £3.

As I said before I think I had a 20% code for all of these as I never order things full price anymore. 

All in all I LOVE E.L.F and hopefully will always love them :)





  1. great shopping!! I hope you're glad from them :)

  2. I love E.L.F. I really want to try their mineral foundations, I need something with a buildable coverage :)

  3. Ooh ripe rose looks beautiful! xo

  4. @Sylwia - Yeah I do love ELF :)

    @daisychain - Try it, its only £3.50 per item and in my opinion its worth it as you can use them many different ways.

    @Jennie - Yep it's really nice, day or night wear depending on how much you layer it on!

    Thanks for the comments :)

  5. I've never bought anything from elf before but I really want to try their brushes. Next time there's a code I think I'll have to treat myself! x

  6. These brushes look so nice. I have a big set of makeup brushes at home so I have no excuse to buy more :( lol but I may have to try their mkaeup sometime....

  7. what color it is the mineral concealer?

  8. Hi! I found your blog while searching for swatches of the mineral foundation. If you don't mind me asking, how would you describe your skin tone? I really want to try this but I'm not quite sure which shade to pick.

  9. If you know mac I am NW20 - NW25, which is a darker "pale" if that makes sense, I am warm toned though! I am not ghostly white but not dark!
