I guess you guys may have noticed by my long absence, that I’m currently right in the middle of my exams. But there’s more: Today, June 10th, is my twentieth birthday! I’m finally officially no longer a teenager, though I still feel very childlike.
Anyway, upon checking my inbox, I found an e-mail from E.L.F. Cosmetics, giving me free shipping with a purchase of at least €10, as a birthday gift! I never really ordered something from them, but I read a lot of great reviews on how their products are very cheap and yet of great quality.
So you might be curious to find out what I ordered?
The first thing I really wanted to try was their eyeshadow palette. I went for the Limited Edition 32 Colours Palette in Everyday Brights, because all other palettes just had a bunch of brown shades, and I know I won’t use more than 5 of them. The Everyday Brights palette has a few green and blue colours that look really great for summer, they remind me of the sea.
Next on my wish list was a coral lipstick. I watched a lot of Youtube reviews on the E.L.F. lipsticks, and I really loved two of their colours: Captivating (left) and Nostalgic (right). Captivating is a bright coral, whereas Nostalgic is rather old, dusty pink.
Last but not least, I also really wanted to try their highlighters. Again, I picked two colours: Golden Peach (left), which I think gives more of a warm, summerlook, and Lilac Petal (right), a very light pink. I’ve never tried a highlighter before, so I just picked two colours which seemed best for me after reading some reviews.
In the beginning of July, when I’ve finished my exams and my package has arrived, I will write a big review on these products. I also have a few other products I would like to review for you once I have enough time, so stay tuned!
