ELF Haul + Mini Reviews

Like most people it seems I could not resist taking advantage of ELF having 50% off everything recently. I hadn't placed an order in a while even though I used to be an avid ELF fan, one of the reasons was when I went to order most of the things I wanted were out of stock however I was happy to see everything I had my eye on was available this time. 
Baked Blush in Peachy Cheeky £3.75 - I've wanted to try these baked blushes for so long, so was happy to see them in stock. The shade Peachy Cheeky is a lovely peachy pink colour that is subtle but adds a lovely glow to the cheeks. I definitely want to pick some more shades of these baked blushes soon.
Maximum Coverage Concealer Oil Free in Porcelain £3.75 - Another product i've had my eye on for a while. I would say this is high coverage myself but it does seem to cover redness and blemishes pretty well without feeling heavy. The shade Porcelain is a good match for my skintone too. 
Lip Balm Tint in Grapefruit £2.50 - Do I need anymore lip balms? No, but I just couldn't pass this one up! It's the perfect size for my handbag and the shade adds a lovely pinky red tint to the lips. It feels really moisturising too and smells like vanilla and taste good too!
Eyelash & Brow Wand £1.50 - A pretty boring purchase but I was in need of a new brow wand. I use these to brush through my brows before I use a pencil to fill them in. I like the ELF ones because they feel sturdy and are cheap. 
Jumbo Eyeshadow Stick in Rock Out and Forest Nymph - £2.50 - I'm really into eyeshdaow sticks at the moment so I wanted to give the ELF version a go. I haven't actually tried these yet but I plan on doing a full review once I have. 
Waterproof Eyeliner Crayon in Brown - £3.75 - This was an impulse purchase, the shade is an almost matallic brown which I thought would be nice used on the tight line. I've only used this ones and it seemed to last okay but some more testing is needed. 
50p Makeup Artist Palette - £15.00 - Saving the best till last, I saw this palette on the homepage and knew I had to have it. It comes with 5 blushes and 5 bronzers which are all well pigmented, I can see myself wearing all of these. Then underneath there are 40 eyeshadows which are a mix of neutrals and some brighter shades, all well pigmented and easy to blend. 

So that is everything I bought from ELF during their 50% sale. I'm really happy with everything I ordered and i'm already planning on picking up a few more bits next time they have a good discount code. Have you ordered anything from ELF recently?
