e.l.f. Haul 8&9 swatches

Hi Everyone! Happy almost NEW YEAR! :)
I finally have the swatches from my two most recent e.l.f. hauls. To see these products click here and here.

Here is an overview of the swatches

e.l.f. Studio Pigments
From Left to Right
Magical Maroon, Golden Goddess, Passionate Purple

Studio Pigment in Passionate Purple
I wanted  to show a close up on this because I was having a hard time capturing what it really looks like. The swatch above is too dark and doesn't showcase the blue shimmer in it. However, I will admit it doesn't show up as entirely bright as does below.

e.l.f. Mineral Eyeshadow
From Left to Right
Confident, Trendy, Sassy
I'm a little disappointed in Trendy... It's not very pigmented and a little grainy.

e.l.f. Essentials Shimmering Facial Whip
From Left to Right
Pink Lemonade, Spotlight

e.l.f. Studio Cream Eyeshadow
From Left to Right
Dawn, Bronzed
I am obsessed with these cream eyeshadows. I have never used anything so smooth! They almost feel like a liquid on my finger.

e.l.f. Elements Eyeshadow
From Left to Right
Sage, Moondust, Mocha
These were surprisingly more matte than I anticipated, though they aren't totally matte.

From Left to Right
e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm in Mellow Melon
e.l.f. Mineral Lip Gloss in Trendsetter
e.l.f. Mineral Lipstick in Party Pink
I am so impressed with how smooth and nicely pigmented the Studio lip balm is.
As always, I love the Mineral Glosses and Lipsticks. Trendsetter is a nice sheer rusty cranberry shade and Party Pink is a pink with a very slight coral tinge to it.

e.l.f. Mineral Eyeliner
From Left to Right
Black, Midnight
As I mentioned in the haul post with this eyeliner, the black has a rather hard texture but the navy blue is really really soft. I'm not sure why they are so different. But they both work.

Okay that's all my e.l.f. hauling for a while... oh wait, except for my Christmas e.l.f. which will be along in the next week I guess. But then that will be all my e.l.f. for a while. I did however, make my first Beauty Ticket order tonight because they have 50% off sitewide until 01/01/2011 (Oh that's so weird to write!) with code: NEWYEAR50
I had never been to their site before but I'd heard about it quite a bit. I guess I never really grasped what they were all about though because I was shocked at what a small selection they had. I guess that could also be a result of the great sale going on. Either way, I got like 6 or 7 things and I am so excited for them to arrive.

Now it's off to bed I go. It's like a blizzard outside and my husband&I are driving up to see our families for the holiday tomorrow so we need to get lots of rest :)
