Lauren has introduced me to a few different beauty items* over the past few months but the best one has to be to e.l.f's eyelid primer... and, subsequently, the entire e.l.f range.

I wanted to try an eyelid primer as I had practically given up on eyeshadow altogether, so when I read about e.l.f's eyelid primer I was keen to try it. I have to admit the £1.50 price tag was the deciding factor. I'm fed up of spending money on products that I use only once or twice, when they fail to give the promised result.

Once on the site I decided to go for the Eyelid Primer Collection. I love the champagne shade and use this most days but for a completely natural look or as a base I wear the nude shade. I wouldn't use the pearl shade on my eyelids but would happily use this as a highlighter on my brow bone.

In the meantime Lauren had purchased the same set but didn't like the pearl or champagne shades as she found them dry and chalky. Admittedly they are more chalky than the nude formula but I find the champagne shade gives a lovely, subtle shimmer, which drys quickly and stays put all day so I'm really pleased with it.

I don't think you can buy the collection anymore but you can buy the different shades separately for £1.50 each.

Since buying these I have returned and purchased two eyeshadow trios, two nail polishes, two matte lip colours, a lip stain, a lip primer and plumper and an eyeliner... well, they did have a 40% off offer. I'm hugely impressed with everything, but I'll save that for another post.

*Collection 2000 Cream Puff Moisturising Lip Balm, Alberto VO5 Miracle Concentrate, Superdrug hot cloth cleanser.

Have you been tried any of the e.l.f range?

  3. I've not tried anything by E.L.F yet, but for £1.50 that is a fantastic price. I'll make sure to check the range out, and thank you for the comment, the photo is of next door's cat, Prince. He's a cheeky one! xxx
