e.l.f. Haul #4 - Cleaning the Warehouse

I was enjoying a normal Thursday night when I learned that e.l.f. was having a huge sale on some old and newer items alike, in order to clean out their warehouse and move to a new one. Immediately I knew I had to help clean them out. I was pleasantly surprised to see some items included in the sale that I've never personally seen on the site before. I was able to get my hands on such goodies, as well as newer matte lip color shades, and some types of products I've never tried before. I'll be doing the usual review/first impression/swatch process, so that you can go out and get the products that will work best for you.

1) e.l.f. Essential Brightening Eye Color- Luxe

Unfortunately, these eyeshadows have very poor color payoff. However, the formula is very soft. If you are someone who is not interested in a dramatic eye, these are for you.

3) e.l.f. Essential Brightening Eye Color- Butternut

4) e.l.f. Essential Flawless Eyeshadow- Party Purple

This product has better color payoff than the brightening eyeshadow. I have used the same one, but in the ocean blue colors, and the quality is pretty good for $1.

5) e.l.f. Essential Luscious Liquid Lipstick- Pink Lemonaid

These products look and feel like lipgloss. I'm talking about that shiny, sheer look, with a sticky feel. They stay sticky and wet over time. I really hate lipgloss, so I regret buying these products. If you like sheer lip color and lipgloss, then you should think about getting these. Also, it takes forever to prepare these for first use. You have to keep twisting the end for some time before the product dispenses. Raspberry has the best color payoff.

11) e.l.f. Essential Lipstick- Posh

These lipstick appear to be as good as your average drugstore lipstick. They aren't incredible, but they will function as a basic lipstick, which is their purpose. Color payoff is what I would expect. A caution with these- the lids don't actually snap on, meaning they fall off easily.

16) e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color- Fuchsia

I've raved about these in the past, and I still feel the same way. These products have great color payoff, and are effectively matte. Also, they don't dry out your lips! It doesn't feel like you are wearing matte lip color, but they truly are matte. They also have good staying power. I can eat and drink with them on, and only do a minor touch-up afterwards. Seriously, you need to get these things. I'm digging Praline and Natural right now.

20) e.l.f. Studio Pressed Mineral Bronzer- Baked Peach & Caramel Cabana

First, I love the packaging of these bronzers. They give a more high-end feel. The pigmentation is pretty good. Caramel Cabana is a darker bronzer, and I'm just obsessed with it. Overall, these are pretty darn good and worth your money.

21) e.l.f. Studio Baked Bronzer- Maui

You have to keep rubbing your brush in the product a lot in order to get any pigment on the brush. It does work and look fine...eventually. The baked bronzers and highlighters are not my favorite e.l.f. products.

22) e.l.f. Essential Blush- Innocence

This blush is perfect for more natural/nude makeup looks. Very soft formula.

23) e.l.f. Studio Blush- Giddy Gold

I'm not sure how much use I will get out of this blush, since it's a gold shade. It reminds me more of a bronzer than a blush (you may even be able to use it as a bronzer). However, I don't want to discredit it. I think it would work great for some sort of themed makeup look.

24) e.l.f. Studio HD Blush- Showstopper

I've never tried a cream blush before. The idea of such a product scares me, because I'm afraid it will be too harsh and not blend well. When I swatched this product, I only applied one pump to my arm. Let me tell you, a little goes a mile. I included a few photos just as proof. I was able to keep spreading the product all over my arm, and the color was super intense! I then rubbed the residue on my finger onto my hand, to show you what it looks like more blended. I actually had trouble washing this product off. I had to scrub my arm in the shower. Overall, I'm not sure if I will ever use this, because the color is overly intense (even when blended), and doesn't come off easily. My recommendation is to try using only half a pump, or less.

25) e.l.f. 3-Piece Nail Polish Set- Beach Party

e.l.f. nail polish tends to chip pretty quickly, but I'm a nail polish collector, so I purchased everything I could get my hands on. I do like the colors and the themes. I'm super excited for the natural colors, as I feel I did not have any decent natural colors beforehand.

29) e.l.f. Nail Polish Set- Jazzy Berry & Meadow Mist

I'm intregiued by the stickers that say "new formula." I'm hoping this means they will not chip as fast.

30) e.l.f. Studio Sculpting Face Brush

This brush is a knock-off of some other new, high-end sculpting brushes. I knew this e.l.f. brush would be just as good as the others, and it is! I kept looking forward to my order arriving, just to use this brush. It's slanted design has improved my bronzer application (which I've been struggling with), while making it easy to blend. You should buy this brush.
