Spring 2012 ELF Haul & Giveaway

One of the most dangerous websites for me is the Eyes Lips Face or ELF web page.  There are some truly quality items on this website that are well worth your money.  You can find a fantastic brush set without breaking the bank, extremely beautiful bendable blushes to give you that rosy glow and some new eyeshadow quads that will really surprise you.  If you sign up for the elf newsletter or emails they send coupons multiple times a week for free shipping or even steep percent off discounts.

My justification for placing an order was my need for more makeup wipes.  I really adore the ELF wipes, but I recieved a coupon via email for buy one get one FREE!  Which in my mind meant why not get twice as many as I had planned for?  While surfing the website I found that they had new Eye Makeup Remover Pads which is the small white packet in the photograph.  First thoughts of the eye makeup removers pads- they are too small and thin.  The makeup remover wipes remain my favorites.

Next up I bought the ELF Natural Eyelashes in Black and Brown.  I absolutely LOVE the black lashes and I wear them all the time.  I feel like they give me a really nice, full, natural look.  I have never purchased the brown lashes before, and my my my they are much more light brown in person that I expected.  I look forward to giving these a try.

I went online read up about the ELF Eyebrow Kit and decided that perhaps this would work great with my brows.  I use a brow gel to keep them in place but I do not really fill them in or do much else.  I chose the color Ash since I highlight my hair blonde, and my natural color is a dirty ashy brown blonde.  I must say this kit looks pretty strange in person.  The gel looks like a great color to compliment my natural brows, but the powder almost looks straight WHITE?  Why would I ever put that on my brows?  Oh well I look forward to trying the brow gel. Maybe next time I will order the next lightest shade.

The ELF Mineral Powder brushes really WOW'ed me over when I last ordered in the Fall.  They feel extremely well made, the ferrell and handle are sturdy and the bristles are so soft you almost don't want to put the brush down.  I have been using my Powder brush as a Blush Brush because I like a large brush to help disperse the blush over my cheeks.  Two of these four brushes are for me, and the other two are for my giveaway.  Just subscribe to my YouTube channel and comment on the video for this giveaway.  It is open until April 4th, 2012 11:59 pacific standard time.  Trust me, you are going to LOVE these brushes.  Two winners will be chosen from the comments section and they will each win one brush.

 In the "NEW" section of the ELF website there were some eyeshadow quads that screamed BUY ME NOW MELISSA, so I obliged and wow they look fantastic in person.  I purchased the ELF Flawless Eyeshadows for $2 each, one in Tantalizing Taupe, and the other in Party Purple.  They are labeled for how they suggest application and really remind me of the Wet N Wild Trios (which I am obsessed with).

Lastly I purchased a couple blush and bronzer duos for a future giveaway... Stay tuned for that :-)

And as a side note here is the polish that I wore in the video.
