Elf Haul Review! Swatches and Look!

Face Products from ELF Review and Swatches!
I purchased these products about a month ago on the ELF website when they had some great deals going on, so of course I was tempted and I gave in to my inner beauty goddess and placed an order. I wanted to do a review of some of their face products that I could wear together for an everyday look. 

Here are the three products Baked Bronzer in Maui, Contouring Blush and Bronzing Cream and Tone correcting powder in Cool.

Here is a photo of the Cream blusher and Bronzer close-up, it has a nice coral color to it and the bronzer isn't orange. They are both pretty matte colors that go on the skin with a dewy finish, but there really isn't shimmer to either shades. 

Here is a close-up of the Cool tone correcting powder, and I have been wanting to try a product like this for sometime. I know a lot of high end brands carry products that do tone correcting, but I didn't want to pay 20-60 bucks for it. This seemed like the perfect option for me, and there are 3-4 different options to choose from which is also great.

A close-up of the Maui baked Bronzer, and this was a great pick up for me, since I have been looking for a bronzer that I can take everywhere without carrying a huge palette around. The color is great for my skin tone, and I can layer on more color during the summer months when I have a bit more color.

                Swatches of Baked bronzer, cream blush and bronzer and tone correcting powder mixed together.

Here are the products on my face, I applied the cream products first and layered the baked bronzer on top. I then put the tone correcting powder on top of everything to give it a nice finish. I of course put all of this on top of foundation and added some natural eye makeup and a nude lip to pull it all together.

Final Thoughts:

I really enjoyed all of the products, and my favorite one out of the bunch would be the cream blush and bronzer. I have used those the most, and I can say that they do last all day on my oily skin along with a setting powder with out breaking me out either. The other products are also great and have a pretty good staying power, but I will most likely wear the bronzer during the summer time since I am pretty pale right now. As for the tone correcting powder I really liked the finish on me, is it is pretty matte which I love! Even with it being matte I noticed it perked my tone up and gave me a great finish.
