I ordered from ELF....


I love ELF. They are my favorite drugstore brand. It is the only store I have ordered from online more then once. Great products for great prices, you honestly cannot top ELF when it comes to those 2 variables. So here's what I got this time:



 Face
Blush

I ordered some Christmas Stuff, but I couldn't not buy myself anything! I have been obsessed with blush lately. I have this really pretty pale pink which is comparable to Benefit's Dandelion (which I dont have) but I have been on the hunt for something similar....I haven't found it yet but Tickled Pink is a little but more peachy, but it's still pretty.




Pink Passion is a little scary, which is why I got it. I dont have anything hot pink like this, so I thought it would be a fun edition to my collection. Both of these blushes are a bit chalky, but it's not much of a problem if you tap your brush a few times. I think they are worth every penny of the $3. I mean, like I said, you really cannot beat Elf when it comes to price/quality.

 Lips





Matte Lip Color in Natural- I have been wanting to try these Matte Lip Color things for awhile now, so I figured now would be the time. It came with alot of product, which is awesome for $3. Since it is just a fat lip liner, it works for both lining and filling in my lips. It isn't moisturizing in the least bit, which matte lip stuff usually isn't. It would be nice to find one that is, just sayin'

this is the product twisted all the way up, so you do get a lot of product.


as you can see, the product scraps up on the tube so that sux but it hasn't detached from the actual tube. so far so good, anyway.



Elf Essential Lipstick in Classy- One thing about Elf is the swatches they have on their website are never true to the color once you get it, if you ask me.I thought this lipstick was going to be much less pink, & more on the pale side but I was wrong. It is pretty, and since I usually dont buy deeper pinks (or anything deeper in general) I guess it is ok. I mean was a buck, yah no?  I heard it was a dupe for Mac's Angel and I personally dont think it is. Classy is too deep for comparison. Another thing I wanna note about this lipstick is that it smells like fruit juice. Another thing about this lipstick is that it is a lot more moisturizing then other lipstick's that I own, like Revlon's.


Elf Mineral Lipstick in Pouty Petal- This color is actually the exact same color as my lips, and that sux. I have really been wanting to try Runway Pink from the mineral line and I should have bought that one this time. Like I mentioned before, the swatches on the site differ from the real color. I think I like the essential's line of lipstick formula better then this one. This one is moisturizing as well, but I just like the scent/taste of the essential's one better. Other than that, I think they may be the same formula...only the Mineral lipstick is $5. I like the sleek look of this packaging better though.

as you can see from the picture, the lipsticks look like the exact same color. And in real life, they are extremely similar in the packaging.






as you can tell, they swatch much differently:
from top to bottom: Essentials Lipstick Classy, Mineral Lipstick Pouty Petal, Matte Lip Color Natural



That was my haul. I ordered from them during their cyber monday sale which was half off and also free shipping...sweet! All and all (along with a few Christmas things) I payed like $23. Not too shabby.

Have you guys order from them lately? What did you get good? What do you guys recommend next time I order?

As always, thanx so much fro reading and have a merry christmas

xoxo,
Erica
