e.l.f. Cyber Monday Haul: finally arrived!

Sorry this photo turned out so dark! 

Hello there dear readers! I am so happy that my e.l.f Cyber-Monday order finally arrived on Saturday. What a great sale (despite the super-slow shipping)! I got everything for 55% off plus free shipping. What a sweet deal!!! I mean, seriously, I love e.l.f....and its just hard to resist those deals sometimes! :)

Here is just a preview picture as I will be testing out these items over the next few weeks to review for you! I am super excited about the the "new" products such as the Studio Cream Blush and the Studio Cream Eyeshadow! Also, the Mineral Lip Glosses appear to be total MAC lipglass dupes (see colors listed below). This is my first time trying e.l.f. mineral glosses. So, I am ready to get "makeup-ing" with my new products! :)

Wow, that blush is *bright*, right? The texture is really strange! 

So, here is what I got:
  • elf Studio Cream Eyeshadow: Dawn
  • elf Studio Cream Blush: Flirt
  • elf Mineral Lip gloss: Fierce : appears to be a MAC dupe for Cockatease (which I no longer have)
  • elf Mineral Lip gloss: Sorority Girl: looks like a total dupe for MAC Nymphette
  • elf Waterproof Eyeliner Pen: Plum* OMG-tested this today...already LOVE it!!!!
  • elf Waterproof Eyeliner Pen: Midnight (packaging states "new improved formula", but honestly never tried the old formula). 
  • Last, but not least: elf Studio Large Makeup Brush Holder (OMG-I am so excited about this!!! I really need a better organization system for my ever-growing brush collection)
Just tossed a few brushes in there to give you an idea.
I might need to get those plastic "beads" (I believe it is bean-bag filling?) 
to make the brushes "stand up" better. I mean, them flopping over like this is 
just not going to work, lol!!!

What did ya'll get on Cyber-Monday (or black Friday for that matter?). There were some great deals out there!

Ohhh that brush stand looks great!! I need better organization fro everything - I feel like I would use way more of my products if I could actually SEE them lol! I was just talking about "midnight" coloured eyeliner earlier today! Can't wait to see swatches!! :D

Pammy said...

Hey Shaylee!!! Yes-the brush organizer actually inspired the entire order (and was super cheap!)! :) My brushes are beyond organization right now...I need to seriously re-do my whole makeup organization system. And, seriously, these waterproof liners just might be my new fav as far as "liquid" liners go. The point is *so fine tipped* that application was a breeze! LOVE! And, the color is Fab too! XOXO!!!

Fifi said...

I really thought those glosses were MAC lipglasses! Haha. Are they sticky? And I didn't know ELF has cream blushes! Would love to know what you think about them as well ;)

Sher said...

lovely haul hun,i like everythn u bought cant wait to see looks with these products I need the brush holder thingy its pretty

Pammy said...

@Fifi-Yes, these appear to be such total dupes for MAC lipglass!!! The packaging, the texture...but, not the scent. But, for $1.50 each (on sale)...I'm not complaining!!! Will do a total in-depth review on these very soon!!!

@Sher-Thanks girl!!! :) I am so excited about the brush holder, seriously!!! :) THanks for stopping by! XOXO!!!

Melly said...

Nice haul! The blush looks so bright o.O Wonder how it looks swatched hmmm.

Pammy said...

Hey Melly! Thanks!!! Stay tuned for swatches in an upcoming post...and, LOL...I know! I had no idea that the blush would be so *bright*! That is the trouble with ordering online! :)

Justine @ Productrater said...

I have two of those large brush holders they are awesome! ;)

Pammy said...

@Productrater-Hey Justine! Sweet!!! LOVE having an affordable option for brush organization. :) Basic and sleek!

What a cool brush stand!

Kristen said...

ELF has super super slow shipping. I always find it shits faster to get 2 day shipping. Costs a little more but you get your items in 2 days. Anyway. For Black Friday I picked up a Wet N Wild Train Case filled w/ Wet N Wild goodies. I had some stuff from Sephora but returned it, because it was an impulse buy lol

BTW I love that brush stand!

Pammy said...

@Gaby-thanks girl!

@Kristen-True, it does always seem like shipping takes forever, but at the same time...I would hate to pay any extra. :) But, good idea! :)

Tracy said...

I can't wait to hear your thoughts on the cream blush & cream shadow. Those were on my wish list!

Shabby makeup said...

What a good haul!! I can't wait to read your reviews for the cream blushes, I haven't bought any yet and it's killing me!!

Dyna said...

awesome haul :)
the cream blush looks good. Can't wait for your review :)

Pammy said...

@Tracy, @Shabby Makeup, @Dyna-I can't wait to test them too!!! I am already thinking that cream shadow is going to be nice!!! And, I am always crazy about cream blushes! :) Ya'll check back soon for those reviews in a few days! :)

I used it to stock up on stipple brushes and to try the mineral series - I ordered a lot of brushes. And couple of blushes and the golden bronzer and compacts and the silver signature :)
I'm sorry I did not get any mineral lipsticks, I've been wanting to try Runway Pink for so long now.

Pammy said...

LiisK-Hi there! Ohh-you ordered some great items! I had been planning on ordering the stippling brush, then I ended up totally forgetting to order it! :)

LiisK said...

That is such a shame!
I love mine so much I wanted to give them as gifts to my gf-s. It's diameter is rather small and stippling the entire face will take a lot of time (hopefully they do come out with a fuller version too) but the result is just perfect. And the price! Especially during the sale! God, I really love e.l.f. ...
Pammy, when there's another sale, get it :), even if you think it's too small for foundation, it's still a great instrument for the cream blush you've just bought :)

Pammy said...

LiisK-Ooooh! Sounds so nice! Looks like there is another elf order in my future, lol! ;) I am sure there will be a massive sale soon...I totally need to pick this one up!!! Thanks so much for describing it! :) Have a great day!!!

sugar sugar said...

Pammy said...

@SugarSugar-thanks girl!!! :) lovin the brush holder and now am thinking I should of ordered 2, lol! :) maybe in my next giveaway!!! ;)

FunnyFaceBeauty said...

I am waiting on a lush shipment. I ordered mine last week though so it probably won't come for awhile. Ive heard that the blush has a really strange texture but it looks gorgeous. I also love the look of the cream eyeshadow. I don't think I ordered one...too bad!

Pammy said...

@FunnyFaceBeauty-Hey Alicia! Oooh, can't wait to see what your got in your Lush haul! Yes, the blush texture is so strange...I still need to play with it a bit more. LOVE the cream shadow! :) XOXO!!!
