Elf Studio Line Haul (part 1)

Hello!

So e.l.f. had their 12 days of Christmas sale recently and one of the days was 40% off of their Studio products.  I had wanted to try a few, and at e.l.f.'s crazy low prices I got all sorts of stuff for $26 plus shipping.  So if any of this stuff turns out to be good it was worth the investment I think :)


Today I'm going to review the tools and make-up accessories I got.  First, I picked up some brushes.  I really like small brushes because I have hooded eyelids, and I feel like I control the product better so I got two small "all purpose" eye brushes and a small stipple brush for concealer.

 The stipple brush is not as dense as my Real Techniques brushes, but it will get the job done better than using my fingers for sure. 

I also got brush shampoo - I have a "recipe" for a brush cleaner that I use for quick cleaning.  But I wanted to try their shampoo for deep cleaning. 


I also got the Makeup Lock & Seal: "Coat your eyeliner, shadow, lipsticks, blush, brow color and more for a sealed smudge-proof wear. The quick dry and easy to use formula keeps your makeup in place for hours. Say goodbye to makeup smudges and hello to makeup that stays put!" - from the e.l.f. website.  I thought this might be fun to try (it's normally $3, but with the sale it was $1.80!) I think it will either work well or be a mess :)

And the Makeup Mist & Set"The invigorating mist moisturizes and soothes the skin with key ingredients Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C & E. The lightweight, comfortable and alcohol free formula improves makeup wearability and prevents color from running or fading."   I have read good things about this on other blogs and wanted to give it a try!

So there's the non-color makeup part of the haul and I'll have the rest up soon.

Have you tried any of these and what did you think?

  1. Great haul! I love the Mist & Set works great in the summer :) The stippling brush is great too, I have 2 of them.

  2. The Stipple brush was my favorite until just recently when I bought the Real Techniques. It's definitely a good brush for the price. Love the Small Smudge brush. I use the Mist & Set nearly every day.

    I'm very curious about the Lock & Seal. Let us know how it works out.

    1. I am curious about the lock and seal as well, I don't know exactly "what" I want to try it on first. Maybe just regular shadow and liner?

  3. I've only tried 2 elf products because their shipping to Canada is stupidly high. My mum is in the U.S. for the next month and I've asked her to randomly pick out some elf stuff for me. I'm really curios about that brush shampoo!

    1. That's crazy that the make it hard to get in Canada - you would think they would WANT to sell it. Does it matter if you buy it from the Target website? That's fun that your mom is picking you up stuff - I need a mom that travels abroad! :)

  4. I haven't really bought anything from ELF for a while but I've been seeing people haul new stuff that look interesting. I'd love to read your review on the Lock and Seal. That's probably the only thing I might consider if you give it a good review.

  5. I have never tried anything from that line, but at that price point how can you go wrong!

    1. Exactly! I've got to keep an eye out for these sales hopefully during the "regular" part of the year.

  6. I love ELF brushes, and I'm really curious about the Mist and Set--every time I see it I end up not buying it, and I don't know why!
