Luscious Liquid Lipsticks
Bark, Cherry Tart, Pink Lemonade, Baby Lips.
I love these - for $1US, you can't go wrong. The colours are sheer and don't last a hugely long time, but I find that with any lip gloss. They have a twist up doodad that releases product via the sponge, like Stila Lip Glaze does with the brush. I've reviewed them before - you can read that here if you're interested.

Plumping Lip Glaze
Top: Mauve Berry, Bottom: Ruby Kiss
These don't do much of anything. They certainly don't do any lip plumping, and the colour is very sheer and not really what you think you're getting. The white end - the "plumping" bit - has a strong menthol scent, like those ice breath mints.

I reviewed these here, so I won't say anything more about them. They've grown on me a bit since my lukewarm review - I quite like them for work.

Studio Blush in Tickled Pink
This blush is quite pretty and sheer, which I like, and easy to blend. These are about $3US, I think - top drawer ELF!
Natural Radiance Blusher in Shy, Glow and Innocence.
These are the $1US ones, and I know a lot of people dislike these because they're not highly pigmented, but that's exactly what I do like about them. I don't like a lot of colour on my cheeks, and a sheer hint of something is perfect for me.

Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder.
Does this look familiar? Possibly because it's a pretty blatant rip off of the NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo. I've never seen that in person, so I can't see whether it really is a dupe (though I've read that it's not), but I quite like this product. I don't really use the bronzer side - I'm not much of a bronzer person, or a contouring person for that matter. Considering I don't have much in the way of cheekbones going on, maybe it's something I should get into. Hmmm.
All Over Color Sticks

Aside from a bit of a play here and there, I've never really used these - I can't quite work them out. They don't look quite right on me as a blush (or concealer/highlighter in the case of Spotlight), and they're kind of annoying to use on the lips because of their size.

Seeing all of these products together has made me realise how many of them I never use. I'm going to spend the next week or so trying these out and see if they're something I want to continue with.
Anyway, that's my ELF - you can find Part One of the collection here. I hope some of you found the swatches useful, and others just liked having a nose around in some of my stuff. :-)
