Review: e.l.f. Brushes....

Wednesday, February 10, 2010

I’m not one to spend a lot of money on brushes. Every since I discover the wonderful Essence of Beauty line of brushes…I was done with coveting expensive brushes( currently waiting for EOB to knockoff a MAC Duo Fiber 187 brush).So, when stumbled across e.l.f. brushes for a $1 a piece at one of my local Dollar General, I saw new dawning of cheap brushes.

Total Face Brush: It’s not the softest brush, but it does a great job of lightly veiling the face with powder. If you pick this brush up, wash it first and air dry for a softer feel.

Bronzing Brush: The angle of the bronzing brush is perfect for sculpting under the cheekbone. I don’t know why they call it a ‘bronzing’ brush because it’s a wayyy better “angle blush brush”

Foundation Brush: This brush is my least favorite of my $6 buy. Along with any liquid foundation, it gives poor coverage. Plus, its super, duper, extra hard to clean!! I mean, it took way too long for me to remove the foundation out of it synthetic hairs

Eye Liner Brush: Works well with gel liners and eye shadows. Love it. I plan scooping up another one for good measure.

Defining Eye Brush: A crease brush to have and hold. Plus it blends well. Need another one of these too.

Eye Shadow Brush: I’m kind of on the fence with this one. Great brush but it has too many hairs…its bit too thick.

Consensus: Get the Defining Eye Brush, Bronzing Brush and Total Face Brush. Wash them before using. And watch you have enough money left over for a cup of java!!!

Enter to win NOW Curls Champagne and Caviar Curl Elixir

Do you chemically alter your hair? Are your curls dry, dull, and lackluster? Does your hair seem to be growing at an alarmingly slow rate? If so, Champagne & Caviar Curl Elixir is the product for you! Formulated with Champagne Grape and Caviar extracts, this growth enhancing, hair strengthening treatment is THE solution for increasing hair growth and creating unbelievable sheen.
How does Champagne & Caviar Curl Elixir encourage growth, increase strength, sheen and elasticity?
  • Caviar extract increases hair’s sheen, strength, and elasticity (key to preventing breakage and realizing hair growth) and promotes healthy keratin formation.
  • Why is Keratin formation important? 90% of human hair is made up of this natural protein (Keratin) which is responsible for the hair’s strength, resistance to wear and tear, elasticity, flexibility and shine. Hair keratin is damaged by straighteners, colors, perms, blow-drying, the sun, pollution, pool chemicals and even everyday brushing.
  • Champagne Grape extract contains a high concentration of Vitamins B1, B2, B6, and amino acids that help regenerate and stimulate the scalp to combat the effects of free radicals thus encouraging growth. Usage: Use alone or on top of your favorite product for extra sheen. Apply directly to scalp daily to encourage a healthy scalp and enhance growth. Use after any chemical service to restore elasticity and strength. .
