For like a month e.l.f. had a coupon code going on where you could take $5.00 off any purchase with no minimum amount required. I decided to just buy 5 things from their $1.00 Essentials line. Unfortunately they didn't quite get my order right. I ordered the nail polish in Party Purple but instead they sent me Mineral Lipstick in Nicely Nude. They didn't charge me more for it... but I already have that lipstick and don't want another one. I wanted Party Purple!! Oh well. Silly e.l.f.
Here are the goods
Luscious Liquid Lipstick in Bark
Mineral Lipstick in Nicely Nude
Natural Radiance Blusher in Bronze
I am continually impressed with these Natural Radiance Blushers, (minus the ridiculous packaging)
I got this as my free gift for referring 3 friends to e.l.f.
My very first purchase from e.l.f. included this same quad but in the colors Ethereal. I hated that one. I couldn't make it work for me so I gave it to my mom. The colors of this quad are bordering on identical.
The colors look nice... but I knew better.
The white and light tan colors are really sheer and chalky. It doesn't help that they are full of super chunky glitter.
The light rusty red shade is less chalky as is the greenish gray. But compared to my other e.l.f. shadows from the studio and mineral lines, these ones are really poor quality. Sorry e.l.f. I'm just not a fan.
Eye Crease Brush and Eyeliner Brush
I'm really excited about the eye crease brush because it looks like a mini version of the blending brush and that brush is a superstar. The eyeliner brush is really hard. It's more than just stiff bristles, it kind of feels like there is a piece of plastic hiding in the bristles.... But I haven't used it yet, so maybe it will work well for application.
