An ELF is not just for Christmas

Postman Pat delivered a parcel Wednesday containing my ELF order.  I ended up purchasing Mint Cream and Mango Madness nail polish and Runway Pink (Mineral) lipstick.  

Let me quickly remind you (as I mentioned the other day) the mineral line from ELF is free of parabens, chemical dyes and preservatives.  The nail polishes are free of toluene, formaldehyde and DBP.  

Firstly, I am impressed with the speed of delivery as I ordered on Sunday and it arrived on Wednesday (bearing in mind Monday was a bank holiday). I am not a fan of buying make up online because the swatches can be different to when you have the product in your hand.   The lipstick is the classic case of this. I am a little disappointed as it appears pink/brown but seems to be baby pink on my lips.  Anyway, the lipstick is creamy and a pleasure to apply.  It lasted a few hours before lunch but then again I would not expect it to last all day for the price.

I like the nail polishes although they are not odour free as I might expect considering they lack certain chemicals.  I found two coats were needed to get a strong colour otherwise they are streaky and sheer.  I love the colour of Mango Madness it really pops but I am not sure about Mint Cream (but maybe I just need tan).  I cannot comment on how well they wear as I only ever use polish on my toes and it always last longer on feet than hands.  In my opinion for £1.50 each you cannot grumble if you need to re-apply more frequently.

Overall I think you get what you pay for if you are someone on a budget these products are great but if you like high end brands you will probably hate them.  The choice is yours!


  1. Pretty! Do they sell in U.S.?

  2. Can you post a swatch of the lipstick please? :)

    Vintage Makeup - it does not come out very well on my camera & I decided it would be misleading if added it
