So e.l.f. had their 12 days of Christmas sale recently and one of the days was 40% off of their Studio products. I had wanted to try a few, and at e.l.f.'s crazy low prices I got all sorts of stuff for $26 plus shipping. So if any of this stuff turns out to be good it was worth the investment I think :)
Today I'm going to review the tools and make-up accessories I got. First, I picked up some brushes. I really like small brushes because I have hooded eyelids, and I feel like I control the product better so I got two small "all purpose" eye brushes and a small stipple brush for concealer.
The stipple brush is not as dense as my Real Techniques brushes, but it will get the job done better than using my fingers for sure.
I also got brush shampoo - I have a "recipe" for a brush cleaner that I use for quick cleaning. But I wanted to try their shampoo for deep cleaning.
I also got the Makeup Lock & Seal: "Coat your eyeliner, shadow, lipsticks, blush, brow color and more for a sealed smudge-proof wear. The quick dry and easy to use formula keeps your makeup in place for hours. Say goodbye to makeup smudges and hello to makeup that stays put!" - from the e.l.f. website. I thought this might be fun to try (it's normally $3, but with the sale it was $1.80!) I think it will either work well or be a mess :)
And the Makeup Mist & Set : "The invigorating mist moisturizes and soothes the skin with key ingredients Aloe, Green Tea, Cucumber and Vitamins A, C & E. The lightweight, comfortable and alcohol free formula improves makeup wearability and prevents color from running or fading." I have read good things about this on other blogs and wanted to give it a try!
So there's the non-color makeup part of the haul and I'll have the rest up soon.
Have you tried any of these and what did you think?
