E.L.F Makeover

On Wednesday night I placed an order with E.L.F cosmetics. My goodies arrived this morning, just in time to be featured in todays makeup.

My goodies include: Empty eyeshadow palette, Eye shadow pans in Moondust, Golden Glow, Mocha and Truly Pink (currently all £1), All Over Colour Stick in Pink Lemonade, Hypershine Lipgloss in Fairy and Mineral lipstick in Nicely Nude.

The eyeshadows have quite good pigmentation and have lasted all day (I used UDPP as a base).

Despite the quality of the eyeshadows, the lip products where a let down. The hypershine gloss looked horrible on my lips. It showed up as a glittery purple although it may look better if I apply lip erase first. The mineral lipstick was far from nude. Its more of a pink. I applied it lightly to get just a hint of colour.

This is the finished look:

My favourite product has to be the All Over Cover Stick in Pink Lemonade. First of all this smells delicious and works great as a base under powder blush. I paired it with MAC's Well Dressed. I found it easier to dab my 168 onto the product rather than swipe it directly on my cheek,that way you can't overdo it.
