e.l.f. Summer Break Beauty Bundle 2015

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 how this box comes.  All packed up in pink and black looking sexy.  There was no info card but it does have a packing slip so you know what you got.

Shine Eraser Oil Blotting Sheets-$1.00

I keep a pack of these in my purse all the time so getting some more is fine by me.  This is a pack of 50 and also have green tea extract to help your skin as you blot.

Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Black-2.00

This has a tip like liquid liner but is more of a marker in application.  I struggle woth liquid liners but think I could manage this one.  Once it dried it was completely smudge proof, even rubbing didn’t move it.  I could learn to like this one!

Smudge Pot in Gotta Glow-$2.00

They say this can be a shadow or a liner but I just use them as eyeshadow.  This one is gold coloured and has a ton of shimmer.  Once you blend it in though all you really get is the shine with just a touch of colour behind it.

Jumbo Lip Gloss Stick in Tiki Torches-$2.00

Okay so this might become my new favorite lip product.  It is a barely there orange with gold shimmer and I love it.  It also has vitamin E and grape to keep your lips soft.  I keep rubbing my lips together and it’s nice.  I would buy more of these in multiple colours.

Pressed Mineral Bronzer in Baked Peach-$5.00

I’m not really sure how this is a bronzer.  It has no real undertones of bronze or tan.  It’s also a little light to even be a blush.  It goes on looking almost white.  I’ll have to play with it a bit to see how I can make it work.

Waterproof Mascara Top Coat in Clear-$3.00

This is a clear mascara that you put on top of your regular mascara to make it waterproof.  That’s a neat idea and while I almost never wear waterproof mascara, swimming lesson are starting again soon and this will be useful to toss on after work before hitting the pool so I don’t have to worry about looking like Alice Cooper halfway through.

Eye Refresh in Clear-$3.00

Ooooooooohhhhh……this feels nice………It rolls on your undereye area cool and is supposed to help with puffiness and dark circles.  You can use it over or under makeup anytime of the day you want to.  It contains pomegranate, rosemary, green tea, cucumber and grape.  This is a keeper.

Matte Lip Color in Natural-$3.00

This is just a shade or two lighter then my natural lip colour so it is not a perfect match, however it looks good on.  For a matte  lip product it does not feel dry and I can even rub my lips together a few minutes afterwards with no friction.  I like their lip products a lot and this one is a great addition to my collection.

SPF20 Sunscreen Face Primer in Clear-$6.00

I’m currently using e.l.f. primer and now to have one that has SPF in it just makes it more awesome.  It has that sunscreen smell to it, which I think is great.  I’m so happy with this.

Makeup Remover Pen-$3.00

This is made to get rid of smudges or smears not your whole face of makeup.  I tried it out on that liner from above and just a couple of swipes and it was gone.  This will be great for those times when you blink at the wrong time or sneeze while holding a makeup item.

48 Piece Little Black Beauty Book Warm Edition-$6.00

This eyeshadow palette has a good mix of light, dark and shimmer shades.  It’s still a bit big to just have out even though it folds in half to actually look like a book.  The shades are ones that I would wear and that match the profile survey I filled out at the beginning of my subscription.

Makeup Lock & Seal-$3.00

This is used to increase the intensity of your makeup.  You pour a bit into the little pot and then dip the brush into it and them into your makeup before applying  You need to let it dry but once dry it holds your makeup in place longer than normal.  This seems like a great thing for special occasions where you need to look good for a while.

This month they fell short of their promised $40 value by $1.00.  This months box was really well put together and everything works well with each other.  This was my last box from them and all of them have been good..  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.  The shipping is actually the main reason I won’t be subscribing again.  I have been very happy with the products and will be buying them from stores if I need something.
