Mini Haul - Elf Cosmetics

Elf Cosmetics

elf cosmetics haul - the beauty puff

I have not owned a lot of Elf products but the few things I have I really enjoy.  I like their baked products and brushes in particular.  After seeing the new release of this blending brush and a bunch of photos of the gorgeous highlighters all over social media, I figured it was time to put in my first online order!  My previous Elf purchases have been at Target and Marshalls so I have never ordered from their website.  Since I signed up for their emails for the first time, I got a coupon code for free shipping without a minimum order.  Music to my ears!

The only face brush I have from Elf is a blush brush so I am excited to try this Ultimate Blending Brush!  I am used to Real Techniques face brushes so I am interested to see how this compares.  I rotate my face brushes because, admittedly, they are not always clean when I reach for them.  I hope this brush performs and washes as well as my other brushes so I can put into the permanent rotation!

The Elf Studio Baked Highlighters come in three different colors - Moonlight Pearls, Pink Diamonds and Blush Gems.  I chose Pink Diamonds and Blush Gems because Moonlight Pearls looked a bit too similar to highlighters I already own.  I also thought they would look the prettiest to use as eyeshadow/over matte shadows for added glow!

Pink diamonds, as the name implies, is more pink toned and Blush Gems is more of a champagne tone that can go with virtually any look.  Also, Blush Gems has been compared to Mac's Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle.  So if you are looking for a cheaper alternative, this one is gorgeous!   Both of these highlighters can be applied wet or dry depending on the desired intensity.  The swatch you see above is with no primer.  I hope you enjoyed this "mini" Elf Haul!  Happy shopping!
