Elf and Mac Haul

Hellooo girls.

So the past two days I've had a lovely package waiting for me when I've arrived from work. They were much anticipated and I couldn't wait to open them. Thought I'd share with you what I recieved:

Firstly, the ELF products:

Quite a collection...

I got 4 brushes....

From top to bottom - ELF professional total face brush, ELF professional foundation brush, ELF professional eye liner brush and ELF angled foundation brush.
So far I have used the foundation brush and the face brush. The foundation brush is really soft and smooth - no shedding on your face and it just blends your foundation in really well. A winner for me!! The face brush again does not shed and it really soft and fluffy. I have used this for both all over powdering and bronzing and so far I have had no problems. I will review these brushes again later to see how they stand the cleansing test...

I also got a clarifying pressed powder in the shade Honey and a tone correcting concealer also in Honey. I've only swatched the concealer and my first impressions are good. It blends well and leaves no sticky residue. It also smells really nice, which in my opinion, is a bonus.

My favourites from the products are the two lipsticks I recieved.

                                              Pouty Petal on the left and Runway Pink on the right

I have found that the shades do somewhat differ to the swatches shown on the website, however I am not disappointed as I love both colours and they both have a lovely creamy texture.

On to the MAC products. Now before we begin let me tell you I am a MAC your eyes do not decieve you. So I am really excited to share with you my two first ever, MAC products.

Cremesheen in Creme Cup

                                                                            Eyeshadow in Sable

I am totally loving these two products and thought I haven't properly tried them out yet, here are a swatch of the two products...

I will review all the products in greater detail once I've had a chance to try them out properly and let you know of any standouts/epic fails.

Have you tried these products? Opinions? Recommendations?

Bye for now xxx


  1. I like Sable but I don't use it very often. In fact, I have too many eyeshadows (mainly MAC because I worked there) that I try to rotate everything I have... I tend to forget (!) - terrible. My latest obsession is the NARS rajasthan eyeshadow duo, it's gorgeous, I just blogged about it. I'm your newest follower!

  2. I really like the Elf Eyeshadow brush, in my opinion, it's really similar to the MAC one :) I've just ordered Urban Decay Book of Shadows Vol lll, so excited to get it xD Sorry thats pretty off subject :L :)


Hi thanks for leaving a comment on my post. I enjoy reading every single one of them and I promise i'll get back to you if you ask a question xxx
