My e.l.f. package has arrived!!! :)

When e.l.f. announced another 50% code (with order of £30 or more- see their website for details) I couldn't resist making an order- I decided that it was my early birthday gift to myself :) My package came today (speedy as usual) and I am really happy with what I got:




My sister purchased a Defining Eye Brush a while ago- naturally I've used it and fallen in love, so I had to get one for myself :) The Cream Eyeliner is in Black- I thought it would be useful for evening/ more dramatic looks, but I still love Coffee for everyday wear.

I'm very excited about trying the new Cream Eyeshadows, I got one shade, Dawn, to try it out and so far I really like it, I think the colour suits me :)


Wow my veins look blue here...


Because of the 50% off, nail polishes were only 75p... it would be silly not to get a few- so I got 10! I figured I'd probably end up buying them at some stage anyway, may as well do it at half the price :) Now I just have to change my entire nail polish storage around to fit them all in!


Left side (top to bottom): Purple Pleaser, Sunset, Rosy Raisin, Medium Red, Dark Red
Right side (top to bottom): Plum, Chocolate, Blush, Mango Madness, Dark Navy.

I would love to do swatches for every polish here, but you'll have to wait until my e.l.f. nail polish review (coming soon I promise!) The picture above is fairly true-to-life anyway.

And finally, something I've been wanting for quite a while (I have a couple of make up bag but they're too big/small/short etc.) is the Signature Case- and I finally caught it in stock :) (not anymore though) I got the silver colour, which is a kind of antiqued silver rather than bright silver.




There is a large pocket on one side, with lots of space for things, then a zip-up flap which has spaces for brushes, and a little mesh pocket for more things. I'm going away for a week ( a Pack Holiday) with my Brownie group in a couple of weeks and this will be perfect for my make up- I'm really excited about packing! (I'm less excited about doing all the catering for 15 Brownies and 6/7 leaders!)


What have you been buying recently? Have you made a 50% off order?

  4. I'm wearing mine right now and it seems to be lasting fairly well, though I havn't used primer (I'm trying it with primer tomorrow!) or a shadow ontop. I'm sure I'll have a review on it sometime soon :)

    Ooh exciting- what's it like?
