e.l.f Haul

I have tried a few makeup brushes from e.l.f  but have always wanted to try their products as I read a lot of good reviews about them.

Thanks to Canadian Beauty Reviews, I am convinced that e.l.f. shipping and delivery to Canada is pretty good so gave me the green light to place my first order.

I have my eyes set on a few must-try products from e.l.f. (thanks to Lenallure). She has great and detailed reviews of a lot of beauty products.

So here is what I got:


Canadian Beauty Reviews gave me a great tip of placing an order under $20 so I don't have to pay duty on my order. e.l.f products are very reasonably-priced but the shipping cost can be pricey to Canada. I managed to place the order when they were doing the 50% off promotion and I found a discount code for shipping so making this order under $20 with the shipping.




The powder is very silky. Can't wait to try it. 


Matifying Powder

I have oily skin and always in need of powder mid way through the day. This is a very nice color, a hint of pink, which I think would suit my skin tone. I have bought compact powder before with very yellowish undertone. Not the most complimentary color on me.


Contouring Blush and Bronze Powder

I like the soft pink blush color but the bronze powder looks different from the picture shown on the webiste. It is a little bit darker than I thought. Haven't tried it yet so will review it after.



High Definition Powder

I was contemplating between getting this in translucent(clear) or this (shimmer). At the end, decided to go with shimmer. It is a very light pink powder with a hint of shimmer. I was worried that it would have a lot of shimmer but it is very subtle. I tried it today and you can only see a hint of shimmer when I was applying it. Very smooth powder. I only put on BB cream today. Will yet have to try with foundation and see if the pink tone would alter color on it. 

Overall, very pleased with my order. I placed the order and received it within a week. I wanted to try their essential blending blush but they were out of stock(so bought it from ebay). Still a few other things I want to try out and will definitely continue to buy from them online.

    1. The prices are cheap in US but since they have to ship to Canada, sometimes the items were $1 or 2 but I had to pay $10 for the shipping. Just wish they are more readily available here.

      Thanks for dropping by, following you back:)
