MINI PENNY: ELF Haul + Giveaway

ELF Haul + Giveaway

It's been a while since I placed an order from ELF Cosmetics, and this time I sorta went all out. They make one of my favorite (and affordable) eyelid primers and had some new cosmetics I wanted to try.

Here's what I picked up:
Studio HD Blush in Encore — This color is way brighter than it looked on the website (at least on my monitor). It's super potent — the pigment is bright and it covers A LOT with just a tiny bit!
Studio Matte Eyeshadow in Chestnut — This is my new favorite eyeshadow! I'm always on the hunt for a matte brown to replace an old eyeshadow I had and used up. I think this one is it!
Studio Under Eye Concealer & Highlighter in glow — I didn't buy this stuff for under my eyes. Instead, I'm using it to highlight just under my brow. The highlighter has a tiny bit of sparkle, which is nice, but the concealer doesn't have much pigment to it (probably a good thing).
Lip Definer and Shaper — This is just a shade darker than my natural lip color and is great everyday wear! I use the shaper on my lips with a tad bit of balm and I'm good to go!
Studio Small Angled Brush — I got this to replace one of the others that I had. Definitely a good buy!
Essential Eye Crease Brush — This had some loose bristles when I got it, so I had to trim it up a bit before using it. Other than that, it's perfect for my eyelid crease and I love using it with the matte eyeshadow!
Essential Waterproof Eyeliner Pen in Green and Teal — I love using the hunter green. It's not as harsh as the black that I normally use and isn't as difficult to get off. It's more sheer than I would prefer, but looks good over the white primer. The teal, on the other hand, is bright and I love it!
Essential Eyelid Primer in Sheer and Pearl — The sheer primer is the same one I've been using for years. The pearl is a nice change if I'm trying to wear a more pigmented liner or shadow, though!

Also, brushes. A lot of 'em.

And now, something for you! This month on Mini Penny, you can win a 32-piece geometric eyeshadow palette! With lots of purples, browns, and neutrals, this will get you both natural and smokey through the holiday and beyond. Enter below! Giveaway ends Monday, December 16th at midnight CST. Best of luck!
