Sœurs de Luxe

I had wanted to buy stuff from e.l.f. for a while now and I finally have. I had it posted to my parents house in England, where it had been waiting for me for over a month!
Everything is so cheap, so I got a bunch of stuff for only about 15 pounds. I can’t remember the prices of everything but I don’t think I paid over 1.50 for anything (apart from the brush cleaner)
I bought the Daily Brush Cleaner because I had heard really good things about it and I was a bit tired of having to either deep clean my brushes daily or just use a gross brush. I was also using expensive eye make up remover on my eye brushes as it was the only thing that would remove M.A.C gel eyeliner. So far I like it, and my brushes do feel considerably cleaner after use.
e.l.f. shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Boldly Bronzed- I have not actually used this yet, but i swatched it on the back of my hand and the colour is really pretty and thick. It has a built in pencil sharpener in the lid which is pretty handy.
e.l.f. Eyelid Primer in Champage- I bought this because I had heard it was as good as the urban decay primer potion. I wasn’t really impressed but I will persevere and try again to see if I get a different result.
e.l.f. Professional Blending Eye Brush- It feels a bit cheap and it isn’t super soft but it does the trick!
e.l.f. Natural Looking Lush Lashes Lash Kit in Black- I bought these on a whim, I actually despise false lashes. I think they look lovely when properly applied but I am awful at doing it. I get really stressed and frustrated and then give up. practise makes perfect so Ill see how I go with these. I know that cheaper lashes tend to be harder to apply because the strip doesn’t bend but I’m hopeful that these will be okay.
e.l.f. Lipstick in Fantasy- This lipstick is really my colour and its really pigmented too which is great. It isn’t particularly moisturising which is a shame.
e.l.f. Cream Eyeliner in gunmetal- After I swatched this I was expecting a really great eyeliner but after actually using it I’m a little disappointed. It is not very pigmented and a bit too glittery so it hasn’t really created the effect I had anticipated.
e.l.f. Zip Zapper- This was a but of a random purchase, I have not even tried it yet. I am a little apprehensive because it is a rollerball which doesn’t seem very hygienic to me.
e.l.f. Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Sun Kissed- I really like this, I have not used bronzer in a long time after a bad experience with Benefit Hoola when I was a lot younger which completely put me off bronzers. This is a lovely, light, shimmery bronzer which I would definitely recommend.
let me know if you’ve bought from e.l.f. before and which products you tried!
