E.l.f. Holiday 2017 – First Impression Swatches & Photos


Hey everyone! It’s that time of the year again where brands are coming out with huge amount of holiday stuff from palettes to gift sets and so many choices of things to choose from. I grabbed two of the latest holiday set by e.l.f. Cosmetics over the weekend and I’m very excited to show you what’s inside the packaging.

I’m going to do a first impression type of post in today’s blog for your guys. First of all, let me just say that we don’t have to settle at all with just one brand. There are so many brands that comes out with so many gorgeous palettes and brands that putting out amazing lip products this time of the year. But I love e.l.f. for their affordable drugstore brand and their cruelty free, vegan products. I bought several sets last year and I can tell you that they don’t disappoint. Let’s just say that I trust their picks when it comes to holiday gift sets.

I’ll be talking about some of really good finds from e.l.f. cosmetics. So we’re going to dive in and do that now.

e.l.f. has come out with a good selection of holiday sets this year and I picked two sets that I thought I’d want to show you guys.


This is the e.l.f Lined & Lovely Eyeliner Set and the other one is their Glowing Star Bronzer and Brush Set. Each retailed for C$6.99 in my local drugstore or you can get them for US$5.00 at e.l.f’s website.


  • Liquid Eyeliner in Jet Black
  • Liquid Eyeliner in Midnight
  • Eyeliner Pencil in Black

I’m a liquid liner kinda girl so this collection is right up my alley. I love the fine tip brush. It’s so easy to draw a winged eye with this brush. It glides on like a dream. You can say goodbye to tugging and smudging liner. It’s a great product for that price!

e.l.f. Expert Liquid Liner is available in four shades on e.l.f. website. The shades I got in my set are Jet Black which is a dark black and Midnight that’s described as dark navy blue. When I did a swatch color side by side, I notice very little difference when comparing these two shades. I don’t mind because I always prefer black and dark liners so I’m good with it.

Would you believe me if I tell you this Lovely Pencil Eyeliner is only for a dollar? Ridiculously insane right! But that’s the truth. I appreciate the packaging comes with a built in sharpener cap which is so convenient. The color I got is in Black which is a nice pick for this set. It’s a universal shade for everyone. The formula is creamy and it glides  smoothly on the lash line. If you want to try something out that’s low budget but with good quality, I recommend this set to you. You can’t go wrong with the low price!

This is really good Complexion Brush that e.l.f. has come out with several months ago. This is without a doubt the best bronzer and brush that e.l.f has come out with this holiday season.

Each box has a description of its products and the ingredients used. Note that all e.l.f products are Not Tested on Animals. Look for the logo of the bunny to ensure that it’s cruelty free.


It’s made of synthetic hair material. I really like how soft it is and this brush is vegan friendly and cruelty free. All e.l.f. products are not tested on animals in case you’re wondering.

You just swirl the brush on the powder in a circular motion and it picks up the products like no other. You get what you pay for.


The shade Sunkissed Bronzer a great match for light-medium skin toned. It’s pigmented and a little goes a long way with this product. It’s just the perfect everyday bronzer that I know I can wear all the time. Score!

    Nice picks, I have not tried anything from ELF yet but the products seem to be so good. The brush looks so soft and fluffy, nicely reviewed.

  5. I honestly didn’t like the first ELF liner that I bought because it fades quickly and the pigmentation just isn’t good enough. This sounds like an awesome collection though. I’d be more than happy to give it a try especially since ELF is cruelty free!
