2nd Order From ELF

Fact: I bought $15 worth of ELF stuff two years ago - their products are definitely some of the earliest make up I've ever gotten!

Fact: They had a promo of free shopping from purchases $10 and over... and I couldn't resist!! There were a few things I really wanted to have.

So it finally arrived after a week of shipping. So excited!!!!

First of all, I have been wanting these two brushes for the longest time!!! But that darn Powder Brush is always always sold out. So when I saw that it was in stock, I was like "baby - come to mama". And I have also been wanting to get this angled brush for gel liners and such. When I opened them up, they had the strong chemical smell so I washed them with baby shampoo. Now, they both smell like lavender!! Pretty huh. So far, very soft, very nice, very sturdy, very professional looking. I am a satisfied mama indeed!

I also got the Zit Zapper (which I am using right now! Put it straight to work) and so far... I don't know the result yet... ha ha. I'll let you know. It does have a smell but that's because it has camphor in it and that can smell pretty strongly. But it really doesn't bother me. It has 1% salicylic acid which is the active ingredient and it also has tea tree oil and other good stuff in there. Hopefully this will work - I mean for $1!! Wouldn't that be great?

I also grabbed the Mineral Eyeshadow Primer - I know I know - I already have the $1 one and the UDPP but I have been wanting this for a long long time and it was always out of stock too!! This was my only chance I thought.

And finally the Shimmering Facial Whip was a gift for recommending 3 people. I got it in citrus. I also have one in lilac petal and I might just do some sorta overall review... if I ever do! I feel like I always plan to review stuff but then I just don't know what to say... SIGH SIGH!

This was a gift for me because of the promo and I got the Cream Liner in Ivory. First off, it's not a cream white - it is shimmery... so that will be kinda cool for highlighting and as a shadow base too. It doesn't feel gel like - sorta cream like... I guess, I don't know. The texture wasn't what I expected... it isn't like my WnW one. Hard to explain - maybe once I play around with it more I'll know what to say.

I was hoping they gave me one in black/brown or something so I can use my angled brush but oh well! Can't expect too much since it is free.

But yeah, that's pretty much it. I didn't go too crazy. I bought $10 worth and nothing more, nothing less! I'm so excited for the brushes that I got and definitely the primer.

I don't know why I always write late at night because I probably don't even make sense! But...

Have a great night :) Sleep tight and thanks for reading.


  1. ooo I'd love to see some swatches on the facial whip and eye liner!

  2. Nice haul! I'm super interested in that Zit Zapper too!!! The ingredients are so similar to the Benefit Boo Boo Zap (that one's $20! and doesn't have tea tree oil!) which I'm using right now, would love to find a cheaper alternative, especially at the rate I'm going through it!

  3. I never got a free cream liner boohoo :( I can't wait to see if the zit zapper will work! I tried the angled brush today and it's taking some getting used to LOL.

  4. Nice haul! I made an order with that promo code too. lol Waiting for it to arrive still. :( I hope I get a cool free gift.

  5. Nice haul! Hopefully you can do a comparison between the two facial whips, I'd love to see it!

  6. I have those brushes you bought and I love them! I also have the mineral eye primer and I love it~

  7. I keep hearing good stuff about ELF Studio brushes; they're soft. I need to check them out someday! The eyeliner color is gorgeous!!!

  8. Nice haul, girlie! That brush looks really soft and fluffy. =)
