Goodie! I like it. For blending in Concealer, that is. I even use this under the eyes (gently, of course), and it works heaps better than using my fingers. Gets better coverage too. And for the price you really can't beat it.
I can't see this as a foundation brush, though. It's way too flat for that.

I have this in "Eggplant", and man, I gotta say I've seldomly seen an eyeshadow this fugly. BOTH colors, although the green's a little better. I'd call these colors dirty olive and dirty brownish plum. Ugh. However, they do an okay job as an eyeshadow primer (which is what I got them for anyway). Packaging's actually quite good, if you look at the way ELF usually …Read more

Styling Products - John Frieda - Frizz-Ease Dream Curls

I hate this product. It dries my hair out something bad. I already have curls by nature, and was only looking for something that'd make the curls look neater (and less frizzy, of course). This turned my natural curls into waves! I kid you not. It might be because it dries my hair out so bad, and, after my hair has dried after washing and putting this in it's sticky as hell. Way less …Read more

An okay powder, I was actually pleasantly surprised by this. For the price I expected less, but this isn't prone to caking more than other "common" powders (like from Maybelline or something), keeps my face matte for around four hours (which is not super, but hey, I'm pretty oily). I got it in "light beige", which is too dark any orangey for me - I will repurchase …Read more

I like this quite a bit better than the other lip products I have tried from E.L.F. (namely the Super Glossy Lip Shine and the Plumping Lip Glaze). It's a really pretty cold pink. It's not sticky (I don't care what ELF calls it, this is a gloss), and lasts for around two hours. It doesn't irritate my lips or dry them out. A nice gloss for that money. I'll repurchase.

Mixed feelings about this. The color's nice for me, since I am *very* pale, but on a darker complexion this might not be very noticeable at all. Although it's called "Fire Coral", this is not a warm color, it's more melon (cold) - which imo is good (since most people look better in cold colors). Anyway, I do NOT like the way the gloss feels right after I've put it on …Read more

Well... I like it. I've been using this product for some time now, and I do have to say it looks pretty natural on my skin, better than other liquid foundations I've tried before. It's easy to blend in, and feels really nice on my face. It doesn't make me break out either. This is a foundation that has light coverage, so you'll definitely need to use a concealer to hide …Read more

I have the tinted (reddish brown) version. The color's a bit much for my pale skin, it'd probably look better on darker skin tone. The lip balm really feels and looks more of a gloss, and it is sticky like a gloss too. ;) However, it lasts surprisingly long on the lips. The effect this product has on my lips as a lip balm is okay, nothing special. My lips are maybe a tiny (!) bit less …Read more

I have the Monobulle 829 "bronze reflets" (yes, "reflets") which is a gorgeous brown golden shimmery colour. The colour after you put it on is a tiny little bit lighter than in the package, but it's still really gorgeous. It goes on okay, and stays a long time. I can't complain about this. Would buy again.
