I'm so pleased with my latest purchases that I just have to blog about it! ;)
I got my package from the e.l.f. cosmetics& I'm loving all the products that I ordered.
I have to say, I'm not a big fan of on-line shopping, it's just the way I am, I prefer to spend my money in the "real" shops rather than in the virtual ones.
But, my friend has had a really good experience with shopping on the e.l.f. website, PLUS, they were celebrating their 3 year anniversary of the italian website so they had a nice promotion going on over the past weekend:
Free shipping (with at least 12,00 euros purchase), and a FREE eyeshadow palette (it was their choice, which one will they send to you, the natural or the smoky eye one.)
I got the natural one, and I'm happy with it as the colours are gorgeous and one can create a beautiful every day make up looks with these colours!
Here are the pics of my little haul:
I'm loving these products!

I wanted to try out the Beauty Encyclopedia and the Contouring Blush& Bronzing Powder for so long!
The Beauty Encyclopedia includes:
- a step by step guide to the perfect eye make up
- 12 eyeshadow shades (you can create both everyday, or make up for the special occasions, with the colours in this palette)
- 2 cream eyeshadow shades (which I use as my primer. They make the colours of the eyeshadows more accentuated& long lasting.)
- 1 eyeliner (black)
- 1 eyeshadow brush
The Duo of the Contouring Blush& Bronzing Powder is made to create a healthy and natural glow year- round.
The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of colour.
The Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones, but go really lighthanded with this one, especially if you have a really fair skin as I do!
I apply the bronzer to the hollow of the cheeks for definition and dust around the face line to create a healthy glow.
Then I use the blush on the apple of the cheeks to create a subtle colour.
e.l.f. All Over Color Stick
Instantly brightens eyes, lips and face.
Naturally illuminates the skin, for a healthy glow.
You can use it as a highlight for your cheeks, brow bone, you can even apply it to your lips!
This is exactly what I did, with just a layer of a clear lip gloss on top!
The result was fabulous :)
e.l.f. Natural Eyeshadow Palette
These colours are so pretty for a daily make up looks!
The texture of the eyeshadow is very soft, the pigmentation is ok, they are all quite shimmery.
You can definitely layer on colours for desired intensity and ideal colour definition.
You can use them dry for a more subtle look, or wet for a dramatic look.
Are you familiar with the e.l.f. cosmetics?
If so, which are your favourites?
Do you have any product that you would recommend to me?
Shop for e.l.f. here:
All the products came to me in the perfect condition, nothing was damaged or broken, everything was wrapped up safely& with attention.
So this is another big plus!
And, they're super inexpensive!
All these things added, just makes me go back to the website for more!
Since I raved so much about the e.l.f. products in this blog post, I'd like to add that I'm not in any way related to the company, I'm not paid to promote their products and I paid this order with my money.
It's just my personal opinion on the products!
Thumbs up, MissTrendyKitty recommends! ;)
