My E.L.F. Delivery

I got a card last Saturday saying that my package have been delivered but it was too big for my letter box so I had to collect it from the sorting office. It said 9.00 am on the card but I swear, no one knocked on my door at all... as it was Saturday and because of bank holiday Monday, that meant I had to wait until today (Tuesday) to pick this package from the post office. Well, there was nothing I could do about it but wait. I was so excited to see them and find out for myself how they were. I've never bought any make up item this cheap and I was so intrigued with the whole thing. Altogether, the make up items came up to 32 pieces including a free gift. They were so cheap that I didn't worry about spending £46.50 on all of them. I thought, if I didn't like them, I can always give them to my sister or my 10 year old niece ha ha ha!

Anyway, here they are...

I had to literally pour the content of the package but I had to do it slowly to avoid damaging them.

I feel like I'm ready to put up my own make up stall ha ha ha!

The make up brushes... they don't look bad at all and they're really soft. I'll find out what they're like when I start shampooing them. I've come across brushes in the past where the hair came off whilst I was washing them.

The middle one looks like the MAC tapered blending brush

The packaging ain't too bad either

They're slightly shimmery which I like for summer.

My gift... Super Glossy Lip Shine SPF15 (Angel)

Just tried this lip gloss and it feels quite nice on my lips... not too sticky! It's got lovely mild scent as well and taste a bit sweet but not nauseating.

My new make up collection!

Ha ha ha! Yes, sis! Before I actually hit the transaction button... I thought to myself... 'If this things turn out to be rubbish, I could've treated myself on another YSL or Dior E/S...' I can't wait to try them on :)
