I was stoked to see so many e.l.f. faves on iHerb… and with the free shipping, it actually beat the cost of ordering straight from the brand. I grabbed a few brand favorites that I’ve been out of.

e.l.f. HD Lifting Concealer | This is one of my favorite drugstore concealers for the undereye area. It’s radiant without having any shimmer in it, and really brightens up your face for an awake look. It’s a thinner formula which blends really easily and conceals any dark circles. I use the shade Fair for a highlighting effect.

e.l.f. Intense Ink Eyeliner | I can never get enough back liquid liners, and this one has a felt tip that tapers to a fine point for precision. It’s also on the longer side so it’s easy to stamp on the upper lash line.

e.l.f. Mineral Infused Face Primer | I’ve been running out of primers lately, pretty much using up my entire collection and I’m ready for something new! I’ve tried several of the brand’s primers including the hydrating version and acne control version with good results, so I wanted to grab this one to replenish my collection.

e.l.f. Studio Matte Lip Color in Tea Rose | I absolutely love this lip crayon formula. It’s super comfortable but with a smooth matte finish. Tea Rose is a pretty mauve shade that is super versatile. I had a few of these already but was missing this shade, which is the type of color I’ve been gravitating towards lately.

I recognized some skin care products that my skin has definitely been craving lately.

Pixi Beauty Glow Tonic | Ya’ll know about my obsession with Pixi Glow Tonic. It’s my skin savior— check out my more recent review about it here. I got another perfect travel size after finishing my last one on my honeymoon. It’s easy to throw in a bag for the gym, traveling, or your medicine cabinet.

Derma E Hydrating Eye Cream | I’ve really been getting into Derma E more and more recently, and this eye cream will be the perfect addition to my nighttime routine. I’m already using the Derma E Hydrating Night Cream which my skin loves, and also contains hyaluronic acid like this eye cream. I prefer tubes when it comes to eye creams as well, since they are more sanitary than jars.

Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream | If you’ve never used this before, you haven’t LIVED. I haven’t seen a tube of this on shelves in a long time for some reason, but iHerb had it! My mom used to keep this on the coffee table and it is the BEST hand cream for extremely dry skin. My knuckles have been killing me lately with this winter weather, and this is doing some major damage control.

I was excited to find some of my favorite go-to makeup products on iHerb, too!

Physicians Formula Bronze Booster Highlight & Contour Palette | You all know this is my favorite drugstore contour. It’s extremely soft, blendable and pigmented.

Physicians Formula Butter Blush in Plum Rose | I shattered my last Butter Blush and it was devastating, because it’s my favorite blush formula! They just feel so soft on the skin and adds a beautiful flush of color.

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Liquid Makeup | I’ve mentioned this foundation a few times, as it was my ride-or-die for years. I just ran out of a few foundations at once, so I wanted to grab something I trusted and knew works really well for my combo skin but gives me enough coverage for my acne and discoloration.

Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge + Travel Sponge Case | It was definitely time to buy a new sponge, since my last one is stained beyond belief at this point and has some patches missing, LOL! I was stoked to find out that they created this travel sponge case to help protect the Miracle Complexion Sponge while on-the-go. Where was this for my honeymoon!!

Real Techniques Blush Brush | Although this is labelled as a blush brush, I actually find it to be incredibly multi-functional, so I personally have a few on hand so I don’t have to wash them between using different types of products. It’s perfect for blending out blush, but also great for applying setting powder, powder foundations, or bronzing.

Elizavecca Milky Piggy Carbonated Bubble Clay Mask | Okay, I haven’t tried this one yet but when I found it browsing iHerb, I had to grab it. It’s that poofy bubble face mask that’s been super popular lately, and I’m stoked I can finally experience the fun!

The free shipping took about five days from placing my order to get to my door! Everything was packed really well With iHerb’s main mission to promote a greener way to shop, 90% of their shipping boxes use 100% post-consumer recycled paper, their bubble wrap is 40% recyclable and they recycle all packing materials received from their manufacturers.
