ELF Elements

A lot of my ELF haul was part of the ELF elements range, something I never read much about. It’s their version of the MAC palettes but I was drawn in by the blushes and lipsticks more than the shadows. I often want to re-touch my blush during the day but forget to put it in my bag.

From this range I got one empty palette

I really like the giant mirror and the tiny lip brush.

From the pan range I got

2 blushes in Flushed and Shy

and 4 lipsticks in Crimson, Sugar Plum, Earth Rose and Peaches

(L-R) Earth Rose, Sugar plum, Peaches and Crimson

I am seriously impressed with everything I got. Considering each item is £1.50, the quality is extraordinary. Everything is pigmented, blends easily and long lasting. I tried to choose shades that I would need everyday in my bag but there are plenty to choose from. I’ve been popping an item of each in mine, to have a whole look ready to re-touch. I’m pretty sure I spy some MAC dupes with those shadows (Black tied and Woodwinked possibly) so I’m compare later.

These also fit into MAC palettes, so you don’t have to have the ELF one, if you have a spare MAC palette or want to add to your own.

Wow - what amazing colour payoff! If they fit in the mac palette, does that mean that mac pans fit in the elf palette?
