e.l.f. Haul #3 - Best Sellers and Must Haves

Wednesday, November 25, 2015
I have to admit, every time that e.l.f. has a sale, I can't resist. How can you walk away from already inexpensive items that are half off?! I was especially excited for this sale because I wanted their latest eyeshadow palette and all of the smudge pots I don't already own. I have plenty of reviews and swatches prepared for you. Let's begin.

Looking for more e.l.f. hauls? Check out haul #1 and #2!

1) e.l.f. Studio Baked Highlighter- Pink Diamonds

At first glance, this highlighter looks really pink. When applied to the skin, it gives a gentle glow. I think it will be really pretty in the sunlight. This product is worth purchasing. I know that I will reach for it often during my daily routine. My only source of disappointment is that I also ordered this highlighter in Blush Gems, but found out when my order arrived that the product was actually out of stock.

2) e.l.f. Studio Baked Bronzer- Los Cabos

I really like the color of this bronzer. It looks dark, but gives a gentle contour when swatched. I think it will be easy to blend and will not look harsh. It is not orange at all. Mine apparently got thrown around too much during shipping. Not only are pieces broken off, but the entire rounded top of the bronzer has broken away from the rest remaining in the pot. I have to be super gentle with it.

3) e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color- Cranberry

I love these matte lip colors! They have good staying power. Very little residue left on a straw. They dry matte but don't turn your lips into a desert. Cranberry is a beautiful shade and great for fall.

4) e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color- Hot Commodity

By now you are probably thinking that I am collecting these things. Well, you are correct! Hot Commodity is such a bright, fun color. If you love to be daring with your lip color, this is the lippie for you.

5) e.l.f. Studio Mad for Matte Eyeshadow Palette

I was totally mad when e.l.f released this palette after my last order! I had just purchased all of their other palettes in this collection (check them out in my last haul). I really liked the pigmentation of the others. So, I knew I had to have this one. I am such a sucker for matte makeup products. I adore the colors of this palette. You could go nude or amp it up, whatever you are feeling that day. This palette can easily be a staple piece in your collection. Of course, all of the shadows are perfectly and entirely matte. Same pigmentation as the others. They look even better on the eye than in swatches!

6) e.l.f. Studio Baked Eyeshadow Palette- Texas


I did not have one of their baked eyeshadow palettes in my collection yet, so I decided that now is the time. Unfortunately, I am disappointed with this palette. The pigmentation is very poor. I kept rubbing my finger in the shadows, but not much improvement with the swatches. I still hold out hope that they will look great on the eye. Also, the mirror fell out of the palette. If this palette proves to be successful, it will be great for nude or eye brightening looks. The shadows are very shimmery.

7) e.l.f. Studio Moisturizing Lipstick- Black Berry

I really like the moisturizing lipsticks! They are creamy and not oily, making application a breeze. The color payoff is great as well. Black Berry is absolutely gorgeous for fall. It is the darkest lipstick I own. It is definitely for the bold.

8) e.l.f. Studio Perfect Finish HD Powder- Sheer

I have been dying to try this product! I never purchased the loose powder version of this product, because of the complaints about working with the powder. I have heard many good things about this product. I can't wait to try it out. I think it will set my makeup very well. I did not swatch it because it is a translucent powder.

9) ALL of the e.l.f. Essential Smudge Pots!

In my last haul I purchased Pearls of Wisdom and Brownie Points. Since then, I've been hooked! These products are SUPER pigmented. Also, they DO NOT BUDGE after applied. I use Pearls of Wisdom as my eyeshadow base daily. I tend to apply my makeup at 7 am. By 11:30 pm, my eyeshadow has NOT CREASED at all! Where have these products been all my life?! I decided that I would buy the other smudge pots I do not own in my next haul, and I did. I also repurchased Pearls of Wisdom, since it is now a daily product for me. I still have not used these products as eyeliner or on their own as eyeshadow. I'm afraid that they won't play nicely with a makeup brush. One day I will conquer this fear and give it a go. But, seriously guys, you need to buy these things.
