E.L.F Cosmetics Review

E.L.F Cosmetics recently ran an "#ILoveELFBecause..." competition where you could either tweet, Instagram or even send in a video of why you love E.L.F. I tweeted "#ILoveELFBecause... their products are fab, flawless and friendly (to my purse)" and I was one of the lucky girls who won £10 worth of E.L.F goodies.

The first product I tried out was the Super Glossy Lip Shine in #D21. I normally don't wear lip gloss because I find them too sticky however I was pleasantly surprised with the E.L.F Lip Shine! It didn't feel sticky on my lips at all and was a nice red/brown colour which is also subtle enough for daytime wear. I love that it has a SPF too for that added bit of protection. 5/5


I also received a Liquid Lipstick named Brownie Points. Again, I am pleased with this liquid lipstick, it glides on smoothly and is not sticky either. I love this shade as I think its perfect for daytime or evening wear and is similar to the Super Glossy Lip Shine so would look great with a bit of gloss on top! 5/5

The third product I tested out was the Duo Eye Shadow Cream in Berry Mix. I absolutely love the colours of this cream eye shadow however it did feel very greasy on my eyelids and was shiny. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone who does have excess oil on their lids however it could work well with a decent eyelid primer. I give this a thumbs up for colour but I'm not too keen on the texture! 2/5

E.L.F cosmetics also sent me a Shimmer Pencil in the colour Grassy Green which I was so happy about as I love wearing green eye liner occasionally as it really compliments my green eyes! I found the eye liner really easy to apply and unlike some pencil eye liners, it was also really easy to remove so I didn't have to rub the delicate skin around my eyes too much! I love that the pencil has a slight shimmer too it as well. 4/5

Lastly, I received the E.L.F nail polish in Nude. I haven't tried the nail polish out yet as I currently have a gel manicure but I have heard all good reviews on E.L.F's nail polishes and I love the shade. I'm looking forward to trying it out. 3/5

Below is my finished look with all the products that I received . Overall, I love the products that E.L.F sent me and I think that an E.L.F splurge is definitely well overdue...
