the house guest ♥

So it's pretty hard not to hear about elf products, I have seen amazing reviews about this brand so I thought I would treat myself and buy a few things ;) If you follow me on Twitter, you'll know I have been moaning about not finding a high street Christmassy lipstick, I want a lovely rich purple/cherry tone to wear with smokey eyes. When I went onto elf online, I saw Essentials Lipstick in Gypsy and was really impressed! The best part is, it was only £1.50 - not bad right?! I also saw the shade Charming, I can't seem to buy lipsticks without finding a brown, beige as well. They are incredibly pigmented and they have a lovely creamy finish to them - I think they are even more creamy than the Rimmel moisture renew range. I also saw the Rich Red Matte Lip Color pencil - the shade looks lovely and I think I only have 2 or 3 red lip products in my room! (Shock face). I think this is really good for exact definition, it can be quite tricky using bold lipsticks so I really recommend this if you have trouble putting intense lip shades on! 
My favourite product has to be the Studio Complete Cover Concealer - how amazing do these shades look? I picked medium for my skin tone and I really am impressed by the packaging and actual feel of the concealers, they are really lightweight to use and a very good match for my skin. The All Over Cover Stick was only £1.50 and I've seen quite a few Kim Kardashian contouring videos using products like this, I think as an overall cover stick, it will be really good as a highlighter. For the Studio Blusher, I usually wear bronze tones, but the shade I picked, Blushing Rose, has a hint of cherry in it. It blends in really well (I'll be putting together my new brush range this week) so I really feel like my Winter/Christmas make-up is coming together nicely ;)  Have you tried elf products before? They are really well priced and the pigmentation on the lipsticks are amazing, I wish they had a few more nude shades though! Let me know what Christmas make-up you are buying for this year! Have a lovely afternoon girls ♥
