E.L.F studio

Last week I made an order from the new elf studio range, I went abit mad to get the free postage, so all this came to about £35 I think.

Firstly from the brushes I got the powder brush, the complexion brush and a fan brush. I have been using the powder brush everyday since I got it to just apply my bronzer and other powders and I LOVE it, so soft and gives an even finish! The complexion brush is also very good but I havent used the fan brush yet, not really sure why I bought this, not really sure what to do with it :/

Next, is the under eye concealer and highlighter which I love, I got the fair one and its just right for my pale skin tone, the highlighter is great too. I got the lip primer and plumper but Im not impressed with this at all, when I got it the plumper end was all in the lid broken off as if it had somehow melted and then when I tried abit it stung my lips so badly liek I was being stabbed so Im not sure what happened there! Lastly the eyebrow liner and filler in the darkest shade, this is really good, makes my brows look really thick and perfect :)

Next, I got the contouring blush and bronzing powder, I havent used this much yet but both colours are really lovely. I also got the complexion perfection compact, I havent seen much difference from using this but I did read on a blog earlier that it works better when you use each section on its own rather than just using a brush and swirling them all together like the box says so maybe Ill give that a try.

Lastly I got the warm bronzer and I can honestly say this is amazing for me, the best bronzer I have had, makes me look lovely and lightly tanned rather than orange, so if you have a pale skin colour and find that bronzers tend to look orange on you then give this a try!

I also got a few bits from the normal elf range for £1.50 each, I got a clear top coat nail polish, 2 nail polishes in nude and coral (which is so gorgeous), the individual lashes which I have no idea how to use (any tips would be welcome :) ) and a mineral lipstick (£3.50) in the nude shade but its alot more pink than nude but still a lovely colour which I think I actually prefer to a nude.

Overall Im very impressed with what I got and am already considering ordering abit more as I want to try the golden bronzer and I want the false eyelash applicator that comes with the studio range ones.
What have you got from this range? and how do you like them?

They look fab! I haven't bought anything from the range myself yet but I've definately got my eye on the warm bronzer! :)
