(Another) e.l.f. Cosmetics Haul

Hey everyone! Im trying to be good about posting so I'm back with another e.l.f. cosmetics haul! I was so excited to find out that there is now a brick and mortar e.l.f. store at my local mall so naturally I had to take advantage of that. I hate buying cosmetics online because the swatches are never true to color and I like to be able to see and swatch everything in person. Anyway, I went in there looking for nail polish for a project I'm doing and naturally walked out with so much more. Luckily e.l.f. cosmetics are really affordable so the price tag on this haul was really reasonable!

Check out the haul!

Here is an overview of the haul as well as the reusable bags they put your purchase in. I am obsessed with this bag, I actually use it all the time now!

The first thing I got is this GORGEOUS Prism Palette in "Sunset." I must have been willing summer to come early with the purchase of this palette because I know it will be so amazing for summer eye looks. The colors are really shimmery and pigmented and I can't wait to play with it!

Next up I got a blush because I don't have a lot of blushes in my collection and this color is really pretty. This is the e.l.f. Studio Blush in the shade Twinkle Pink.

These are the four nail polishes (Essential Nail Polish and Glitter Nail Polish) that I got for my project that I'll be sharing with you soon! They are fun glitter and iridescent shades.

Naturally I had to buy myself a nail polish to wear too. This is in the shade Liquid Metal and they could not have chosen a more perfect name! It literally looks like I poured melted silver on my nails. The formula still isn't great as it chips really easily but the color is really pretty so I don't mind doing my nails a little more often.

Finally onto my favorite, Lipstick!! I got two shades of the Moisturizing Lipstick and I'm obsessed you guys. They look very similar but there are some differences once they are on your lips. This shade is called Crazy Cranberry and it shows up with more of a red undertone. It's like a brick red which is my favorite shade of red to wear.

This color may be my new favorite fall lipstick! I'm OBSESSED! The shade is called Wine Tour and it is the most gorgeous wine/berry color. It is so incredibly pretty. The only thing that sucks is that the bullet broke the very first time I used it. I've been able to use it but it's annoying but it only costs $3 so I'll probably just end up replacing it. I'll melt this one down and use it with a brush at home and I'll bring the new one with me to reapply.

So that's my haul! I hope you guys liked seeing it. If I have time on Monday I'll play around with the eyeshadow palette, blush and lipstick and I'll show you a fun look! I'll have to use the gold and bronzey tones in the palette with the fall lipstick but we'll see what I can come up with :)

I hope you are all having a great week! I'll be back on Monday with my February favorites post!


  1. Oh man, I'm so jealous that y'all have an e.l.f. store!!! I have to get mine at Walgreens, and the selection is usually pretty picked over.

    1. Do they have e.l.f. at a Target near you? The Target near me has a pretty nice selection! Maybe try that! The e.l.f. store is pretty amazing though, they have everything!

  2. such a fun and positive post! the blush is a really pretty color and the nail polish looks like it would give you a little boost everything you looked at your hands.

    1. Thank you! The blush is very subtle and pretty, just the way I like it ;) The nail polish is pretty, I just wish it would have lasted longer!

  3. I purchased red lipstick to wear to the Black Valentine wedding (first time ever wearing it in public!), and now I have an eye out all of the time for it (even though I've yet to wear it again!). Both of these shades are just beautiful. The eye color pallet is lovely, as well. How is the pigmentation? Long lasting?

    1. It was very recent that I wore red out in public for the first time and I haven't turned back! Bold lips with neutral eyes is my favorite look... probably mostly because I'm not great with eye makeup just yet but I love playing with fun lipstick colors.

      The pigmentation on the eyeshadow palette is pretty good, especially for elf! I have had issues with e.l.f. shadows in the past (I hate the baked palette I got) but this one is pretty good! It reminds me of the golden goddess quad (I've blogged about it before) which is the only elf shadow that I like. I'm excited to play with this for the summer!
