My competition win!

I was so excited last week to receive an email from ELF to say I had won a goody bag from them by entering a competition. I never win anything so I was really surprised. I never really enter comps because I just don't win but thought I would so it for fun whilst I was on my own and bored. The competition was to try and guess what the products were that were blurred out. I got the email from them on Friday and received my brown box on Wednesday. It was definitely more than I was expecting.

Here are the goodies that ELF kindly sent me.
It was even more exciting as I had no idea what I was going to be sent :-)

The first thing I spotted in my box was the beauty encyclopedia for eyes. It contains 12 eyeshadows, 2 cream shadows, 1 eyeliner and 1 brush. All of the colours are really wearable and are quite neutral earthy shades, they range from a lovely light highlighter shade up to a dark plum colour with lots of loves browns and lighter purple shades. They are seriously pigmented colours and looks great on. There are two matt shades and the rest are shimmer. I actually thought the cream eyeshadows were highlighters but I think I will still try and give them a go as a highlighter. There is also an instruction guide printed on the other side of the palette.

Next up I got two of the eyeshadow quads, teal dream and punk funk. I haven't used these yet so can't give a full opinion but I can't wait to try them, especially the teal dream.

They also sent me the lengthening and volumizing mascara in black, I currently have a couple of mascaras on the go so haven't tried this either but again can't wait to give it a go. I'm really hoping this is good though, its only £3.50 so if its as good as some people have said this could save me a small fortune :-)

And last but certainly not least was this cute little box, it contains 10 mini lipglosses that you can attach to your phone. I wont do this but I will certainly use the glosses, there is a good range of colours and they all seem to give a really good hint of colour and not too sticky or too sickly or weird tasting. I've put a little swatch of each of them on my hand below.

I'm so happy with my package, I really didn't expect to win and certainly didn't expect as much as I got. I really appreciate them sending me all these goodies and will certainly be entering more competitions now I know I can actually win. As they say, you have to be in it to win it!

Thanks for reading all.

Hope your all having a great weekend.

Lots of Love
