ELF and Famous reviews ♥

Last pay day I decided I would try ELF make up.
I thought the price of the items was very reasonable and that I got a lot for the £20 that I paid.

Mod Mauve Nail Varnish £1.50p
With nail varnishes I usually stick to either Pinks or Reds. So I decided to get Mod Mauve. It is a lot darker in real life then in the pictures online, Its almost a maroon colour. I had to apply two coats, but overall was pretty happy. I'm shocking at painting nails but you can see the colour!

Eye Primer and Liner Seal £3.50p

I have recently started to wear a lot more brightly coloured eye shadows, and hate it when they smudge half way through the day. So this primer was brilliant! You put it onto your eyelid almost like a concealer. Then apply your desired colours onto it. I also found it easier to blend differant shades.

Black Waterproof Eyeliner Pen £1.50
This eyeliner pen is possibly the best eyeliner I have had yet. The thin pen is great to draw really thin lines with. It also stays looking fresh all day long! Normally black eyeliners can be wishy washy. This was really good compared to others!

Olive Duo Eyeshadow £1.50p
I don't ever use eyeshadows this colour. But thought I would try them! Very easy to blend and ELF have a huge range of different colours. I also love the name Olive haha!

Natural Beauty School Eyeshadow Palette £3.50p

I have a lot of brown and cream eye shadows. But none that were all together in one neat little palette. The colours are really neutral, you could use them singularly for the day time, or build them up for a evening look. The only thing I would say that lets this product down is the darkest brown, its almost black,  so you do have to be careful about how much you use.

Blossom Hypershine Lipgloss £1.50p
I normally don't wear lipgloss as I find they are very sticky and never seem to last. But this one was easy to apply, and stayed on for about two hours. I loved the colour too, it was very natural. You could also wear it over a lipstick. 

Warm Tan Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder  £1.50p
This was the only product out of everything that I didnt like. I'm a blusher person normally. But when I applied this onto my cheeks it just looked awful. It was far too dark! Maybe I just put too much on my brush or this isn't my colour, however.. I would say if your quite paled skinned, don't get this colour. This was a thumbs down for me!


Yesterday I went into Superdrug and came across the make up brand Famous. I hadn't heard of it before but it was all half price, so I picked up two things. A gorgeous Lipstick for £2.50p and a nail varnish for £2.00p.

I've yet to try the nail varnish, but I'm sure it will be lovely!
Its called Lovely Lilac - 33

The lipstick is called Pucker Up - Shade 5
Its a bright orangey red.

So that's it for now....
