ELF Haul

So I joined the bandwagon and placed an order with Eyes Lip Face with the 75% off the Studio Line. What kind of sucks is that I couldn't get the free shipping ($6.95) to work and I got charged tax because of the state that I live in... I still saved though with the 75% off. Anyways, I got my order today and another incident with my local USPS.... Grr....

Custom e/s in Wisteria (left) and Creme de Violet (MAC). The E.L.F. e/s actually fit in my MAC palette and it came with a magnet. I chose this because it was recommended in magazines and it is a lilac/lavender which I love. I do not like any items from the regular elf line except for some makeup brushes.

Swatch of Wisteria. Pretty!! Love!!!

Studio Single Eyeshadow in Sand Dollar, Butter Cream, Amethyst & Charcoal.

L-R: Sand Dollar, Wisteria, Charcoal, Amethyst. I do not like the 2 dark colors. Charcoal looks like ash on me and the other, eggplant.... ew.....

L is Butter Cream. It is so pretty!! I don't know if it can be seen in the picture but it is shimmery pale yellow. I love it!!

Studio Eyelash Curler and the Mini Eyelash Curler... Nothing special so I'm not going to take another picture of the actual item.

Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder. Some people are saying it is similar to Nars and some says not. I got this because it was cheap.

Inside my yellowish bathroom light.
Under dim daylight.

Studio Golden Bronzer. I have not decided if I am going to keep this or not so I did not do swatches.

Studio Blush in Tickled Pink.
Swatch. Nothing spectacular to me... Just another pink blush.

Don't really feel like taking individual pictures of each brush but I got 2 Eyeshadow C brush, a Complexion brush, a Powder brush, a Angled Foundation brush, a Contour brush (i don't know why but the package also says dome brush), a Concealer brush, a Small Angled brush, a Blush brush, and a Kabuki Face brush. I didn't get Fan brush and the Kabuki body.

I found this kind of funny. The brown was labled ivory and the medium on the the package is a peachy pink instead of a nude.
