ELF Haul!

So ELF had a special discount code available the other day which was 50% off when you spend £25, an amazing discount! I took this opportunity to buy all the stuff I'd been eyeing up on the website, and it all came to a crazy amount like £12! I paid £15.88 altogether and that was including postage. I was over the moon when it was delivered today. The picture above is of what I got - sorry the concealer/highlighter has repeated itself, silly me.
I will not review these products now because I obviously haven't used them all, however the Kabuki Face Brush was the most amazing thing when I opened it. It was so soft although I do have a slight hunch that the bristles are going to fall out but I really don't care because its so soft! 
I ordered the eyeliner brush because I have the Maybelline Lasting Drama Gel eyeliner and I find that the brush is just too small in terms of the length, and the handle is so small. This brush is so sharply cut and hopefully will be a lot better for the job!

This is an eyeshadow palette that I bought which I paid £2.50 for. I got it in the shade Happy Hour because it was the most natural of all the palettes that were available. I absolutely love these colours and I am such a huge fan of when companies emboss their makeup with where exactly it should be applied (especially with eyeshadow) because it just ensures that the look is perfect!

I've wanted a Revlon Chubby Stick for a while but I just can't seem to find the right colour. I bought this Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in the shade Pink Umbrellas just to see how the ELF one compared to the Revlon one. In all honesty it was just as good! This was only £2.75 I believe, totally worth it and they have 6 colours that this stick is available in - some more suited to pale skin.

The other lip product I bought was this Matte Lip Colour lipstick. I am very into the Matte Lipstick look at the moment because I've developed this dislike for shimmer in lipstick - I have no idea why. This thin lipstick is such a beautiful colour and so smooth to apply. I paid £3.75 for this one and its probably one of my favourite items from my ELF haul.
On the left is a Under Eye Concealer/highlighter duo. I don't like buying this sort of stuff online (well concealer) because sometimes even the darkest shades don't match my skin. I ordered this stick in the medium, and unfortunately it is slightly too light, but I could just about get away with it if I wear it with other makeup (the ELF colour range isn't amazing for concealer). On the other end is the highlighter. Now, I wasn't expecting this to be as glittery and hard to blend in as it was - I tried it on my brow bone and it took a good rub to get rid of the white coloring. Perhaps again it is just more suited to paler skin. This was £3.75.
On the right hand side is the ELF HD Blush in the colour Diva. This was a brave choice for colour because it is so bright, and you literally need 1/4 of a pump for both cheeks as the colour is so strong. For some reason my bottle went all funny and as soon as I opened it all the oil had separated from the colouring and was leaking out the top which was annoying. I did manage to clean it up but the packaging isn't great in this sense. However, at such a small price, £3.75 I cannot complain.

Lastly - I ordered these two nail polishes because I needed to add £2 more to my basket to allow the 50% discount code to work, and these were £1 each! I wouldn't normally buy a colour like the top one (1574) but I thought it was nothing like what I already have. The other one (1562) is a very neutral colour which I thought is good for when I am at work and sixth form. 

Overall I am very impressed with these ELF products, I mean, all of this for £15 including delivery is phenomenal  As far as I can see the quality is fairly good and I will be using these products very often!
