One of my everyday ELF products. I use it mainly for my brows along with brow powder. It keeps everything in line. It's cheap and it works!
I bought this in Gilded, Black, & Plum (I think). They aren't exactly soft and they do not show up on my water line. They're a little too hard to be using near my eyes I believe. The Gilded color is a very pretty golden color too, I was a little bummed out when it wouldn't show. Elf's studio cream eye liner is a better option though.
This brush is incredibly soft. I use it for applying blush and it's awesome. I really do recommend their studio line of brushes, the essential brushes are a bit too rough.
Lip Treatments -Burt's Bees - Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil

I've tried nearly all of the Burt's Bees lip balm and this one is the best. It goes on smooth, it doesn't break me out, it leaves my lips noticably soft, and it smells nice. It does make my lips peel but I think that's actually a good thing. This is my go to lip balm and so far, those that I've recommended it to love it.
This was my first Burt's Bees lip balm. I wanted to love it since I do like honey but the smell of this was just awful. It did moisturize my lips but if you want a Burt's Bees lip balm, you're better off with the other flavors. I've tried them all except the medicated one & I favor pomegranate the most!
I decided to try this out because of all the hype about it. Got it in Peach Kiss and I loved it. My lips tend to get very dry when I get a cold & well, they didn't this time! About a week later I picked up the Pink Punch & Quenched flavors. I gave this four lippies because around the second week of using it, it didn't seem to last as long & I found myself having to re-apply often. I really do love the packaging, the scent and the sheer color it gives. I do plan on purchasing the other flavors just to try them out since it is fairly cheap and works.
