#LDBEAUTY | Day 3: ELF Contour, Eyeshadow and Primer, Oh My!


Hey kittens!

#7DaysOfLDBeauty, Day 3! Recently I attended a London Drugs event, you can check that out HERE, and one of the brands featured at the event was E.L.F! I love that E.L.F. has been growing so much because they are definitely one of my favourite and extremely affordable brands! 

Here we have the contouring blush and bronzing powder, it's the St.Lucia, which is one of three options. The blush has a shimmer to it which I really like because it helps blend into your highlight and I love myself some glam. The bronzer is a really soft formula that blends nicely which we all know is super important incase we put a little too much on. I'm not really a fan of intense blushes because quite frankly I don't really know how to use them but this one is subtle enough of a colour and so blendable that I have no worries!

This is the Mad For Matte palette and I'm actually quite impressed with it. The colour payoff really isn't too bad and if you really want a bold look apply a primer first. The are super silky which makes them extremely blendable. I find that I do have to lay down a bit more colour if I don't use a primer. Overall it's definitely a palette that I reach for now.

This is the contour palette, it comes in only these shades. Personally I am very light skinned and this palette doesn't agree with my skin tones. The light colours work wonderfully but the light brown is too warm/orange for my skin and the darker brown is a bit too intense of a colour to blend naturally. If you like intense contour and are as light as I am then it would work for you as it does have cool undertones. The formula is super silky and they blend really nicely without losing colour pay off.

E.L.F. primers have always been a favourite of mine. I had actually just finished a container of this in the purple colour before I received this! It comes in three other tones which are purple, green and a shimmering yellow. With this product a little definitely goes a long way as it spreads so nicely and you really need just a little pump of it. Less is always more with primers!

Are you a fan of E.L.F. products? Which was your favourite?
