Living in different parts of the world means we have access to various beauty brands, and there are many we want but can’t have. I know the excitement of going to America and having access to so many brands that we don’t have available here in the UK. It’s an overwhelming experience to say the least, and my bank account hated my after, but oh my, was it an amazing feeling. It’s a whole other story when an American beauty brand comes to the UK, as it means we can have access to it as and when we wish – dangerous but fun!
E.L.F Cosmetics* is a brand I tested out quite a few years ago now and not used since as it was quite hard to get hold off. However, they have finally made their way to the UK. The beauty brand was established over 13 years ago, so it has been a long time coming, but is now available to buy online on the Superdrug site. The products will be released to Superdrug stores from June 1st.
A few weeks back I was lucky enough to go to the launch party, held in London, where the products were there for us to indulge in and drool over. Overal,l there is a huge selection of 123 products, a lot to take in, but there were so many that stood out to me. The range consists of everything you’d need from foundations to palettes and brushes. E.L.F are a brand that makes luxurious beauty products for such an affordable price, starting from just £3, for all women to play beautifully. Want to see more of the collection?
My absolute favourite product from the range is the Natural Glow Face Palette and I had my eye on this the entire time at the event. The beautiful silver mirrored packaging just caught my eye straight away, and the products inside are even more beautiful. It comes with one bronzer, one highlight and two blushes, all of which are so weightless and incredibly soft. They feel super luxurious when you apply them to your skin as well, and this retails for just £9. All 4 shades are quite buy priligy online generic neutral so they would be suitable for many skin tones and needs. Another product for the face that I’ve been testing out is their Baked Highlighter & Blush Duo, which I love to use now for ‘quick makeup’. It makes highlighter and blush application super easy as sometimes I just dip one brush in, apply and then I’m good to go. To apply the blush, bronzer and the duo, I used their Precise Powder Brush as it’s so large and fluffy and gets the job done so fast. Also a tip I use for contouring is to pinch the bristles together and you get a narrower head, perfect for chiselling the cheekbones.
They have a whole range of beautiful lip products, including prep products, tints and lipsticks. Their Lip Scrub Exfoliator in Sweet Cherry has been an essential for when I’m on the go and need to scrub off any dryness from a matte lipstick. It’s super handy to pop into your bag and use on the move. I always apply a balm after to rehydrate my lips. Another product at the event I had my eye on was their Lip Tints, the packaging is so sleek and colourful. Mine is in the shade Dewy Berry, a really pretty medium hot pink that brings life to the lips and makes them so juicy. This is really comfortable to wear if you’re not into lipsticks and glosses but crave a bit of colour.
Last but not least I finally got to try one of their Eye Shadow Palettes. I was literally drooling over some of the shades both online and at the event. They are so incredible for the price, as they retail at just £12.50 and all of the shades are so pigmented and creamy. The palette I have here is Nude Rose Gold, a beautiful array of 10 shades including both mattes and shimmers. I find this a great dupe of the Urban Decay Naked 3 palette, with very similar pink and purple hues. It’s so pretty for the springtime!
You can shop the entire range here now, or in Superdrug stores from June 1st.
