First Impression: E.l.f Cosmetics

Yay! The post-woman saved my day yesterday! She had my little parcel with e.l.f. cosmetics with her. I immediately took loads of pictures of the products, so that I could try them out - Yep, just being a totally normal person. 

I've heard a lot of great things about e.l.f. cosmetics - It's suppose to be cheap, which it is, but the quality is suppose to be lovely to. It's the first time I order some of products, and it went really smooth. I ordered it last Thursday and chose the European Standard delivery, since I wasn't willing to pay a lot of money in delivery fee. The parcel was going to take 7-14 days from the dispatch, but I received it only 4 days after the dispatch - yay for me!

Now to the products. I didn't want to spend too much money, as I didn't know anything about the quality. But this is still 4 products for £10 - bargain. I'm a bit of a lip-lady, so I chose 2 different products. The first one is the Hypershine Lip Gloss in Berry Cherry £1.5. I've only tried this product on my arm to do a swatch, but it doesn't seem sticky, which I really hope that is wouldn't be. I really dislike sticky glosses. The packaging is nice and is similar to the the Stila Lip Glaze packaging. It's a twist application, which means that you twist in the bottom of the gloss and the product will magically appear in the brush. I also chose a lipstick in this case Lipstick in Posh £1.5. It seems really creamy and I adore the colour. The packaging is OK, but not the best I've seen. Since I don't have a lot of blushes in my collection I just had to have one, I chose Blush in Blushing Rose £3.75. I think that I'm going to have a lot of use out of this! The colour is gorgeous, just what I expected. The packaging is nice and seems really "not-cheap". And their is a little mirror, which I like. The plastic is hard and really professional.

Now, I bought this bronzer, to use it as a highlighter. For me at least, it seems as more of a highlighter than a bronzer. Bronzer in Golden £3.75 have 4 different colours, all shining, which you mix together with a brush. I think I could be tempted to use the colours for eyeshadow too. The packaging is similar to the blush, a bit bigger, and have a big mirror.

Overall - I'm really impressed by the packaging and the colours of these products. Now I have to give all of them a try, and I'll do a review afterwards. If you want to take a look at some of the products, or find new ones, you can take a look here.

  1. I'm not too keen on the packaging of the lipsticks, I prefer the mineral lipstick packaging - but I love the hypershine lipgloss packaging! I just brought a bunch of stuff for my sisters birthday and I'm so jealous looking at it everyday I just want to open everything and try it! Love the blush you picked, the packaging of the blushes is great - very similar to nars. I'm a packaging person if you can tell haha. Nice picks anyway! xo

    1. No exactly. The lipstick packaging look cheap. I haven't tried the mineral one, but I'm gonna order some product again soon. What a lucky sister! If the packaging is nice, I tend to use the product more, I don't know why - so I kinda know what you mean ;) Thanks for reading and commenting. x

    1. I like the packaging for all of these products, except the lipstik one. I think it's nice - but yes, you mostly get what you pay for.
