As I type this I am sitting in a Starbucks drinking a Caramel Macchiato. We moved into our new home last Thursday but there was a mix up with the internet company and they never showed to set up our wireless. We won’t have internet until next Saturday now so I’ll be stealing moments in coffee shops here and there to update my blog and scroll through instagram. If I haven’t replied to a comment in a while, that’s why!
Today’s post is an e.l.f. haul! The Sephora Haul that I shared last week was supposed to be a Sephora & e.l.f. haul, but my products didn’t arrive in time. Thankfully they were delivered the morning of the move.
I haven’t shared an e.l.f. haul since the beginning stages of my blog! If you want to see a glimpse of when I had no idea what I was doing as a blogger you can check out the giant e.l.f. haul I did way back then. What a throwback.
I haven’t ordered from e.l.f. since then. There are so many brands out there that I often forget about them. Recently one of my favourite YouTubers, JKissa, released a collaboration with e.l.f that caught my attention again. Unfortunately the vault collection sold out immediately but I was still able to pick up her colourful & vibrant eyeshadow palette.
I love the packaging of these products! I didn’t order the eyeliner that came in the collection but I loved the look of the palette & mascara. These colours are very JKissa! That meadow/acid green shade is unlike anything I have in my collection and I don’t have a purple quite like the ones she included in the palette. I can’t wait to play around with this palette now that the move is over. it’s been a long time since I’ve tried any e.l.f. eyeshadows.
When ColourPop didn’t release a brown mascara with their BFF Mascara collection I was disappointed so Jkissa’s brown mascara is just what I’ve been wishing for. I think that brown mascara is perfect for everyday, especially if you have very fair skin or are naturally blonde like I am. This one is a little more red toned than I thought it would be but it’s still unique and works well for daytime makeup.
Did I need another face mist? Nope. Did I buy another face mist? You Betcha. I don’t know why, I just have a weakness for two specific products: Eyeshadow palettes and face mists. I think most of us makeup lovers have one or two particular product types that we can’t get enough of. Lord knows I didn’t need either but here we are.
I have no idea if this prepping mist will do anything special but guys, it has cucumber in it! I always want products with cucumber and I don’t know why. Seriously put cucumber in something and I’ll buy it. Or I’ll at least add it to my wishlist and think about buying it before it gets buried in the list of products I want one day, never to be seen again.
It was $8 and if it’s amazing I’ll let you know. If it’s not, well… I’ll let you know that too. Have you tried this? It smells like lotion xD
Jess mentioned to me that she loves the $2 brow pencil from e.l.f. and I thought, two dollars!? I’ve gotta try that! After adding my JKissa products to my cart I still needed $6 to qualify for free shipping so it made sense to pick out a few more things to try. So far I like it! The spoolie is really soft and the pigment is creamy but not so much that it smudges all over.
I love when I get freebies in my makeup orders. In my most recent colourpop haul (which wasn’t all that recent anymore) I got the Chasing Rainbows palette for free! I never would have tried it but because I did I was able to share what a great formula it had with you guys. So I’m hoping I’ll have a similar experience with these products.
This lipstick is beautiful! It reminds me a lot of Velvet Teddy from MAC. The formula’s aren’t the same and it’s not an exact dupe but it pulls a look together the same way. This lipstick is also super creamy & hydrating! Pretty decent for $5.
I could have sworn the gift with purchase info said this was going to be a concealer, so I was surprised when a matte eyeshadow showed up. I’m not sure that I’ll use it but from reading the reviews on e.l.f it sounds like a lot of people like using these matte eyeshadows as primers or for one shade eyeshadow looks. I’m not sure it’s for me so I might give it away.
I’m currently using one of e.l.f.’s baked blushes in my 2019 Project Pan. This shade is pinktastic and is supposedly a blush… but it’ DEFINITELY more of a highlighter. This would not fly as a blush on my face.
Did you pick up any e.l.f products from JKissa’s collaboration?
And that’s my haul! Not gigantic, which is honestly my favourite kind of haul. All of this cost me under $30 including shipping so I don’t feel guilty at all. I hope to have my JKissa palette review up next week when we have internet again. For now I’ll be spending my time testing out these products. I should also have a ColourPop haul of the new Spring Collection arriving soon Catch you later!
