ELF Haul (pic heavy)

This is all the cadunkadunk I ordered! my hubby opens the box and says, "wow you got so much stuff!"
Enter in the code "carolina" and get 50% off purchases $15.00 or more. That includes shipping. I paid $24.40 for all of this and that included 3-day shipping.

The packaging of the items. It's nice to know how things are packaged.

The complexion brush.

So how is it? It's not fully rounded, it's actually flat with round edges. BUT, the brush is incredibly soft and feels good on my skin. I love the handles of these brushes.

The powder brush that everyone has been raving about. :)

In my honest opinion I was expecting it to be more full, BUT (again) I tried applying my foundation with this brush and it is *SPLENDID*. Very soft and I didn't have to use a lot of product to get the coverage I wanted with this brush. It is worth every one of my $3.

Swatches of the blush/bronzer (nars dupe). No flash.

Flash. I will have to say I was scared that this would be sheer but it's not. It's totally pigmented, I personally need a light hand when applying both blush and bronzer. So I use my highlighting brush to do so. I love that it's pigmented, it's well worth the price.

Eyeshadow Primer and Liner Sealant.

i must say..i loooovvee the primer. i am not much of a liner person but i can try my mac carbon to see how it runs. the primer is easy to apply, sorta reminds of me of a concealer but this stuff grabs hold of your shadows!

The eyeshadow brush ($1 version). I didn't know what to expect from this really, I sorta just threw it into the basket. It's full and I have not had any shedding problems so far. I'm actually using it as a blending brush. It's worth the $1. lol maybe even more though in my honest opinion.

Swatches from my shadow/liner stick in smoke. It's very pigmented as you can see and the liner is a gel liner. It seriously just glides on with no tugging. The lasting power could be better though.

ELF's nail polish in "Gum Pink". Just the color I was looking for. Not baby pink or hot pink, sorta inbetween. I love it, this is what it looks like with 2 coats.

I have some more stuff to do but I just wanted to post these for now. toodles!
