e.l.f. Beauty Bundle is a makeup box that ships every 8 weeks. They ship out a variety of makeup and brushes from their own lines. They have an assortment of products based on a central theme for that box. This months bundle theme was the Refreshing New Year Bundle. The box starts at $19.99 every other month and promises to ship at least double that in the value of products. It ships in a black box with their logo on it and looks good. All products are full sized as well. This one comes in a branded box with a drawstring bag inside with all your goodies.
This is the bag inside the outer shipping box. For the last two bundles there has not been an info card, just a packing list.
Shimmering Facial Whip in Lilac Petal-$1.00
This is a cream highlighter for anywhere you want a shimmer. It’s pretty heavy coverage so there is a ton of shimmer where I applied it. I have more highlighters now then I will probably use but maybe someday I’ll start to wear them all the time.
Nail Polish in Mint Cream-$2.00
I like their nail polishes since they are inexpensive and they have great fun colours. I have never had any issues with their polish and since my nails are not super long or strong I never worry if I get chips or the polish wears off because I have a daughter who wants her nails done all the time.
Volumizing & Defining Mascara in Jet Black-$2.00
Well it’s been a few boxes since I have received any mascara so my stash was down to 8 tubes. Most ones I get are not full sized so you can go though them really fast. This one is full sized and black, which is the only colour I wear.
This serum is for morning and night and promises to lock in moisture to reduce fine lines and give you glowing skin. It has jojoba, aloe and vitamin E plus shea butter. It’s a bit thinner of a formula them some serums I’ve tried but absorbed quickly and dried fast so there is not a lag before you can apply your moisturizer.
Mineral Lipstick in Ripe Rose-$5.00
I love that they send out mineral makeup as well as regular makeup. Their mineral like is really reasonably priced and it’s just as good as some of the way more expensive ones I’ve tried. I has thought I was not going to like this colour but it goes on me really nicely. It is just a bit darker then my bare lip once it’s on and I think it’s great.
Eyeliner & Shadow Stick in Plum/Purple-$3.00
I like this idea of having both shadow and liner in one pencil. The shadow for sure needs to be applied and then blended out, because it is almost liner like in texture but the purple does blend out to a soft wearable tone. The liner has a great fine point and is not too smudgable.
Glossy Gloss in Berry Blush-$3.00
This is another one I thought I was going to hate based on the colour in the tube but really like once it’s on. It is not crazy shiny, has a low stickiness factor and has a brush applicator. It is a pink tone but not purple or red tinged at all. Yay!
This is your standard eyeshadow brush. It goes with the eyeshadow palette that was also sent this month. They tend to match brushes up with at least one product that you get.
Daily Brush Cleaner-$3.00
I’m guilty of pretty much never washing my brushes. This spray is anti-bacterial and disinfects the bristles of your brushes between actual washings. I might use this but probably not daily. Maybe after my girls have played with my makeup brushes.
32 Piece Eyeshadow Palette in Everyday-$6.00
I haven’t used a big palette like this in years. Since I do my makeup in the bathroom and we have a small vanity I don’t have room to keep a big item like this in there. I think the colours are nice and if I can remember to pull this out it will get used.
Once again they hit the $40.00 promised value on the nose. For me this month the cleaner is not so great but I ended up being really happy with the makeup colours and products included. I only have one box from them left and while I will not be renewing my subscription I have been really pleased with it. There has been a great mix of items and brushes and facial products. As I’ve mentioned before the shipping to Canada is really high, almost equal to the box price so that is a bit of a downer.
