I made my first purchase from ELF last week and this is what I got; Foundation Brush £1.50,  Fan Brush £1.50, Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 in Ivory £1.50, Studio Cream Eyeliner in Coffee £3.50, All Over Cover Stick in Apricot Beige £1.50, Nail Polish in Rosy Raisin & Mint Green £1.50 each. 
Looking back now at what I chose it's a pretty boring selection!

I have to say I was very impressed by the delivery speed, less than an hour after I placed the order I received an email saying that my order had already been posted out! I'd been thinking about trying out some of their products for a while as I'd read such good things about them and the prices seem very reasonable.
I haven't had a chance to try out all of the products yet, so far I think the nail polishes are lovely colours and seem good value for money. Unfortunately the "sugar orange" scent of the cover stick and moisturiser really puts me off of them. The moisturiser is also, unbelievably (!), too light for my pale skin, so a slightly different shade would have been better for me. They have also brought out a new tinted moisturiser in the Studio range for £3.50 which is probably better quality. I don't usually tend to order these type of products online for that reason really but at £1.50 I thought it was worth a try. I'm not sure at the moment whether I would place another order as I'm not yet in love with any of the products that I chose. I would like to try some of the products from the Mineral range though, however I'm unsure about the colour match again. Who knows, maybe I'll be tempted by something!

Has anyone else tried any of their products, what did you think? Any recommendations?
