A 30% off and free p+p ELF haul

 This was quite a while ago, now, but everything's been a bit crazy recently so this post has been put off and off for various reasons but I still wanted to let you know which bits I've picked up and you may see in future posts (Let me know if you're particularly interested in any of them as I can look at them sooner)

I bought one of their fan brushes from their super cheap range - When I get fallout I get really impatient and rub it off and often end up rubbing it in to my face so I thought this might be worth a try to prevent it. This was £1.50 before the 30% off.


Again, from the super cheap brush range, I got this lip brush because I only have one lip brush and I have a number of products that I use brushes with so I thought that a second one would be a really good idea. This, too, was £1.50 before the discount.


The powder brush from the studio range (I think?) was, finally, in stock when I was making my order. This is one of those brushes that bloggers and vloggers are always mentioning but is always out of stock. I don't Really need a powder brush but I was intrigued so I picked it up whilst the offer was on. This was £3.75 without the discount.


I've never tried anything from their mineral range so I thought I'd go for their Mineral foundation which I got in the shade 'fair' - Before the discount was applied this was £5 (Please don't ask me about this any time soon as I seem to have lost it... though as it's the most expensive thing from my order I'll hopefully find it again soon!)


Sticking with the idea of trying out their mineral range I picked up one of their Mineral lip tints in the shade 'Berry'. Before discount this was £3.50.

It fits nicely with my current love of sheer lip products.




This was sort of a repurchase but also not. I've ordered the Daily brush cleaner before but, unfortunately, the bottle leaked so I wasn't able to use it much (the team were really good in sorting that out for me). The use that I did get out of it, though, was good and so I wanted to pick one up so that I can get some proper use out of it. These cost £3.75 before the 30% discount I got.



I've liked the look of the Studio blushes for a while so I bit the bullet and ordered one this time. After looking at swatches online I opted for the palest shade as they seem So pigmented that this was the safest option - The shade is called 'Headliner' - These blushes are £3.75.



You can see the flush that the blush gives, here, and that was with the tiniest drop of the product. 


I had a couple of pounds left to get to the total needed to get free p+p so I decided to pick up one of the Brightening eye colour quads. This one is in the shade Luxe - I've bought one of these before and for the very very reasonable price of £1.50, I liked it so I decided to pick up one with some nice, warmer shades.


Not the most crazy pigmentation but not half bad for something so inexpensive and some lovely, warm autumnal shades.


Lastly I picked up one of the Tone correcting concealers - My concealer obsession isn't over so I decided to try this one out. It cost £1.50 before discount and it's in the shade Ivory. It's a very teeny tube but, so far, the product seems quite nice (though the fruity smell is a little weird, though not unpleasant)

So, that's what I picked up. This came in at around £18 which is a pretty good bargain for what I got, and for free p+p too. I really like ELF products and look forward to trying these out. I'm sure you'll see some of them in future posts.

  1. Oooh I have the HD blush in Headliner too! I really like it but the pump is crap on mine, does yours work okay? On the one I've got, you have to pump it for ages to get anything out :\
