Oh so pretty

Currently I am meant to be saving money, well not saving as in shoving money under the mattress or in a savings account but not buying lots of clothes or make-up. It doesn't help that Asda sell make-up so even when I'm trying to buy milk and eggs - unlikely story, I don't cook - there is cheap make-up telling me to buy it. Eyes Lips and Face or ELF is a brand that I have been meaning to try for a while, mainly due to the prices but also because of the many rave reviews around the internet. There is currently a 25% off by getting the code from the facebook of there distribution company Distribeauty.

My ELF wishlist

The Blush is a shade I've wanted to use for a while but haven't had a chance to try it due to only finding the shade from high end cosmetic companies rather than my usual high-street haunts. The ELF website promises that the High Definition Powder "masks fine lines and imperfections for a radiant complexion" which sounds good to me. The rest are cheap 'hand bag essentials' I would love to try.

I might in fact order these items thursday at 2am when I get paid, so we shall see what the budget ELF brand is really like.

My downfall recently is the Boots 3 for 2 across all make-up. Go in for blusher and come out with blusher, eyeshadow and an eye pencil.

Excuse my awful circulation which makes my hands forever purple - New favourite eye pencil 17 Photo Flawless Eye Pencil in Copper goes on nice and smoothly like Urban Decay's 24/7 Eye Pencils. Going to wear it for work tonight will know how long it lasts then

The Blush on the left is my current go to 'China Pink'. The one is something a little less pink for a change, 'Plum Puff' from 17 at Boots.

The last item is this '17 Trio Eye Shadows' in Barely There. My awful attempt of showing the colours was taken in my car in far too much sunlight. But it is the perfect set for a nice neutral eye for work

  1. I really want to try out some ELF products as I still haven't despite hearing a plethora of positive things about them in the blogging community. I love the nail polish you've picked out! x
