October e.l.f. Haul and Swatches

First of all, I know it seems like I’ve been doing a LOT of hauls lately. That’s because… well… I have. But don’t worry, soon I will start reviewing all of the lovely (and not so lovely) products I’ve been buying! Secondly, you should be forewarned that this post is extremely picture-heavy. Now, on with the beauty!

After buying a huge amount of e.l.f. products in August, I’ve been accumulating a wishlist of more products things I’d like to try.

Today for the first time I ran across a display with 6 of the palettes open to swatch. Finally! Here are my grocery store swatches with some brief opinions on each of those palettes.

Coastal Scents Haul

Ever since I received a quad sample of the Revealed 2 palette in my July Birchbox, I’ve wanted the full thing. However, I knew that Coastal Scents does frequent sales, and so I pledged to wait until the palette was 50% off. That happened this past week, and now the Revealed 2 palette is at my doorstep. It’s not alone, though; I figured since I was paying for shipping anyway, why not try a few more products?
