E.L.F. were having a 50% off sale quite recently so I decided to try a few more bits from their range since my sucessful E.L.F. haul.

I’ve heard quite a lot about stipple brushes, so thought it was about time I got one so I bought the Studio stipple brush (usually £3.50).

This is quite a fine brush rather than an HD application brush like the MAC or Sigma dual fibre brushes. I have quite a heavy hand so fid this brush really helpful when it comes to applying  strong cheek colours. I’d definitely recommend it for use with cream blush – how I’ve been mainly using it.

Then I decided to get a cheap-ish brush set for my travels:

They are actually incredibly soft and much better quality than I was expecting. The wooden handles are upmarket and I love the simple design.

The complexion brush is very full and great for applying powder. I was equally impressed with the concealer and eyeshadow brushes which are great applicators and could be used in a variety of ways. The brow and eyelash comb are nothing to write home about but do what they’re meant to. The eyeliner brush however does not do its job well at all, the soft bristles mean it’s impossible to get a thin line or maintain control over a liner. So I’m not too sure how exactly I’m going to use this brush!

I’m not sure I’d pay full price (£20) for these but for a tenner, think they are pretty good.

I also bought five nail varnishes (£1.50 each) which I featured in my Accent Nail post. Good news, 7 days in and I’m still chip free!

Did you buy anything in the 50% off sale?
