Fill out your make-up bag for less than £10!

Like many mums, I consider buying cosmetics to be a privilege, rather than a necessity. My make-up bag is in dire need of a complete overhaul, and as we're going on holiday soon I decided to nosey around to find the best value for the meager budget I've allowed myself.

Then my wonderful friend introduced me to ELF cosmetics where - she explained - you can buy almost anything for just £1.50. ELF (Eyes Lips Face) was not a brand I was familiar with, and at first assumed this must be one of those sites which offers last year's cast-offs and testers (none of which offer colours any self-respecting mum would consider).

In any case, I popped over to the site and my goodness - she was right!



This amazing site offers almost everything a savvy mum could possibly need to fill out her make-up bag at the low price of £1.50 per item. Seriously! Even make-up brushes, eye;ash curlers and foundation are included in this price range.

Beautiful wearable colours, chic packaging and only £2.95 for regular first class delivery anywhere in the UK. What more could we ask for?

I ordered a complete set of make-up from ELF which amounted to only £9 in total (as everything in this list costs only £1.50):
  • All Over Colour Stick (for eyes, lips and cheeks)
  • Clarifying Pressed Powder
  • Brightening Eye Colour (includes 4 different shades and applicator)
  • Earth and Water Mascara Duo
  • Moisture Care Lip Colour
  • Nail Polish
ELF also offer mineral foundation at the incredible price of £3.50 (though my shade is not currently in stock). This is 100% mineral based, not one of those poor quality versions which contains talk or other ingredients to bulk it out, and is by far the lowest price I've ever seen. 

If you need to kit out your own make-up bag, be sure to take a look at what's on offer from ELF cosmetics. Virtually everything on the site is a bargain, making shopping here a truly guilt-free pleasure :)
