e.l.f. Haul and Swatches

Hey beautiful! I recently purchased a few items from e.l.f. and I got some extra goodies! This is a PIC HEAVY post. Just warnin' ya!

This is what I purchased....




And this is what I ended up with ....


They had a special going on and I received a $20 goodie bag. Wee! I love getting things for free, it's like Christmas in May!

First the things I purchased....

e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder in Corrective Yellow. I used to use a Benefit yellow powder that I can't seem to find anymore, so I was excited to see this one on sale. I've been using it and I love it. I use it as a finishing powder as my last step and it keeps the red out of my skin. $6.00 for 0.28oz.

 Tapped in lid, swatched on skin, blending on skin

e.l.f. Studio High Definition Powder in Translucent. I love MUFE HD setting powder but I've heard this is a close dupe, and a lot more affordable. I've also been using this one and I love it! $6.00 for 0.28oz.

Tapped in lid, swatched on skin, blended on skin

e.l.f. Studio SPF 45 Sunscreen UVA/UVB Protection. I haven't actually used this yet but I purchased it because of the review done my Scrangie (that I can't find for the life of me) but she raved about it. I remember something about sweating through the powder, and it didn't budge. It seemed to lean pink and applied darker when blended. Strange. $6.00 for 3.5oz.

Tapped in lid, swatched on skin, blended on skin

e.l.f. Studio Mineral Infused Face Primer. Again, I haven't used it yet as I have a few samples of primers that I'm trying to use up. When I swatched this on my hand, it seemed greasy, so I'm not too optimistic. $6.00 for 0.49oz.



Swatched on skin, blended out on skin

e.l.f. Essential Eyelid Primer in Sheer. This is the one I truly wanted to try! I've heard such good things about it, and as much as I love Urban Decay Primer Potion, it is expensive. I've used it a few times, and so far so good! $1.00 for 0.17oz.


Swatched on skin, blended out on skin

e.l.f. Essential 4-Piece Nail Polish Set. Set of four great nail polishes in coral/pink/orange that are hot this season! These get a post of their own! $5.00 for 4 x 0.34oz.

Coral Dream, Flirty Fuchsia, Party Peach, and Smokin' Hot

And now for my free goodies!

e.l.f. Studio Glitter Gloss in Golden Glitz. Pretty, sheer, golden lipgloss. Mine had a bit of stray hairs in the brush, but nothing scissors couldn't fix. Slightly sticky, smelled like sweet vanilla, and didn't have much of a taste. $3.00 for .24oz.




e.l.f. Essential Hypershine Gloss in Sugar Plum. Really pretty lipgloss, same sweet vanilla smell and light taste. Really sticky, but lasted a good amount of time. $1.00 for 0.05oz.



e.l.f. Studio Single Eyeshadow in Totally Teal. Brightly colored, silky eyeshadow. Seemed lighter over primer. Haven't worn it yet, but it looks like it'll be fun to use! $3.00 for 0.097oz.


e.l.f. Studio 32-Piece Eyeshadow Palette in Cool. Awesome 4 x 8 eyeshadow palette containing cool eye shadows (glad I got this one and not the warm one!). The shadows seem to be hit or miss on pigmentation and smoothness, but overall, nice deal for a few bucks. $5.00 for 1.01oz.



Swatched on bare skin

e.l.f. Essential 3-Piece Liquid Eyeliner Set in Black, Brown, and Silver. Set of liquid liners with good pigmentation. I haven't tried these yet either. Sorry!! $3.00 for 0.51oz.



Serious haul, eh? Any recommendations from e.l.f. products? I'm seriously enjoying the HD powders and will likely be buying them again once I'm out. They're on par with higher end brands but cost a lot less!

  1. Great haul! I have elf mineral infused primer and quite like it. It feels greasy but when applied on face then it doesn´t feel greasy anymore (at least not on my face) and I just love this elf eyelid primer you got!
