New In: ELF Cosmetics

ELF used to be talked about a lot on blogs but more recently they've taken a bit of a back seat. I recently made a little order after deciding that new makeup brushes were well overdue and I thought i'd share what I purchased. I was hoping to re-purchase the eyebrow kit but it was out of stock; for £3.75 it's a bit of a bargain and is a really compact size as well as being a good quality product so i'd really recommend it.

ELF Cosmetics

Eyelash Curler - this is a re-purchase as i've had my current ones for a few years and the pads have worn out. At £1.50 I find that it does the job perfectly and is well worth the money.
Tone Correcting Concealer - As this is only £1.50 I thought i'd try it out and see if it could rival the Collection 2000 Concealer which i've been loving recently.
Blush & Bronzer Compact - I bought this to see if it lives up to the hype as a rival to Nars Orgasm. I was surprised by how big it was as it only cost £3.75.

ELF Cosmetics Brushes

Brow Comb - I've been wanting one of these for a long time and as I needed to spend £15 this made up the final cost and is a nice addition to my makeup bag.
Studio Blush Brush (not pictured)- My current blush brush is really poor quality so I decided to replace it with this one which was £3.75. The studio brushes are really soft and I can see them lasting just as long as my complexion brush which is still in good condition after 3 years of daily use.
Studio Powder Brush - A little mix up with my order meant that I received this instead of the Blush Brush but ELF kindly let me keep it and also sent me the blush brush I originally ordered. I think it will be good for buffing in your powder on days when you don't wear a lot of foundation.
Mineral Powder Brush - I currently use the complexion brush for my powder so I thought i'd try this one and see if it makes any difference. Again at £3.75 you can't go wrong and I don't regret deciding to purchase these over the more expensive Real Techniques brushes.

When I made my order ELF were offering a free mystery gift of studio and mineral products worth £11 with any purchase over £15 and these are the products I received:
