ELF Haul!

Hey guys, Gemma here. 
So the other day when I was applying my foundation, I realised my brush was looking a little worse for wear. I have been using the same E.L.F 'Studio Stipple Brush' for around two years and it is definitely my favourite foundation brush. So after looking at the condition of the brush I had, I knew it was time to purchase a new one. 

However, when I logged on to my laptop and on to the E.L.F website to buy my brush, I was greeted with a huge 'SALE' link, so obviously I wandered through the whole website and my basket was growing and growing. I then noticed a sign at the top of the screen that was advertising an offer.. If you were spending £15 then E.L.F were giving you free gifts to the value of £15 and free delivery! How could I say no? So this is what I got. 

This is the infamous 'Studio Stipple Brush' - £3.75. When I received this brush I realised that it was a slightly smaller brush than the one I already owned and I must admit I was a little bit gutted for some reason. Then I realised it would be more practical for travelling - always a silver lining! 

Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 - 75p for one. I really love tinted moisturiser for summer and for nighttime on holiday. So when I seen these were only 75p I had to get one, obviously as it is an online store, I couldn't check which shade I was so I got two! I got the shades 'Apricot Beige' & 'Rosy Beige'. 

Custom Eyeshadow in 'Wisteria' -£1.50. Guys I am such a sucker for purple eyeshadows. Use them wrong you can end up looking like you have done a few rounds with Rocky, but use them right - I feel - you will end up with the most gorgeous eye look. This eyeshadow is the same idea as the MAC pro palette eyeshadows. So you can make your own palette!

Concealer brush - £1.50. I always use two concealers, one for undereyes and one for blemishes so I simply just needed another brush as I only have one!

Eyeshadow brush - £1.50.  I have so many flat shader brushes, all different brands and for some reason I couldn't help myself adding this to my bag. This brush is really great for packing on colour.

Corrective Concealer in 'Erase and Conceal' - £3.75. I have had my eye on this for years but I am pretty lucky with my skin so never really needed it. I just thought it was a cool product. Then recently I have been getting a lot of redness that needed dealt with so I got this! The website says 'Use green to neutralise red tones on the skin. Yellow and Pink counteract bluish tones, under-eye circles and dark spots. Use the blue to minimise yellow coloured imperfections and very dark undereye bags'  So far I am loving the green one!

Individual lash kit in black - £1.50. I am a total lover of false lashes for a night out and have been for years. However I have actually never used individual lashes as I always assumed they would be too fiddly. I decided to bit the bullet and just get some to try. This also brought me to exactly to the £15 minimum spend!

So lets see what I got for free!

100pc Festive Marble Eyeshadow Palette. I love eyeshadows and I think this palette has such a great range of colours. I feel like it is so rare to see a palette that entwines neutral shades with actual colours. Also love the last line of smokey eye colours! Great little freebie I think.

Mineral Eyeshadow. Sorry guys I have no idea what shade this actually is, after a look on the website I think it might be bronzed but I'm not 100% sure. I am so so so in love with this colour what ever it is! It is such a gorgeous shimmery brown which I know I will absolutely get a lot of use out of!

Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick. I love these Jumbo Lip Products that have been floating around the beauty world for the past few years. I have a lot from many different brands and this is my first E.L.F one. Again guys, I don't know what the shade is. It is a shimmery nude, however I can't tell which one it is just from the website. I think this will be a great product for the summer.

Lip Balm SPF 15. I can't really express how much I love lip balms with SPF. I always take loads on holiday so I was really excited about this product. But.. I really dislike this product. Loving 3 out of 4 isn't bad though. I think the shade is beautiful, the thing I don't like is the smell. I can't even properly describe it. My mum also smelt it and was repulsed. I nearly threw up! It isn't your average nasty smell, it just isn't pleasant. Definitely not what you are wanting for your lips. Glad it was free!

Do you believe I got all of this for only £15 with free delivery! Unfortunately this was only a 24 hour promotion - I just went on to get my brush at the right time! Have you guys used any of these products? Or made an E.L.F purchase recently? Let us know!
