Decided to write a review on my ELF Makeup Haul. So here you go! Got these from IG @pinsnthings ; ELF products are also available from Paloma Brunei.
Update as of 5 May 2014:
I got the brushes at a good price from @pinsnthings.. Recently, I followed another seller: @formakeupaddicts – she sells ELF brushes as well (pre-order basis). So far, she sells studio brushes (like mine). I bought myself a retractable lip brush. Love the packaging/design of the brush!
Another IG seller you can get your ELF products from is @blushnsmudge_bn She sells even more ELF products including HD Blush, powders, concealers and foundations.
Studio Brushes are pricey even on ELF website (and I recently check Paloma Brunei, the brushes are much more pricier!). Nevertheless, if you can actually get your hands on ELF brushes, you should. I highly recommend those!
I also bought ELF Essentials Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Black. A miss. It is definitely easy to draw using the pencil as it is smooth and creamy, the shimmer isn’t exactly too visible or pigmented so I was happy with that too. I also love the sharpener on the cap though some people actually find it annoying. BUT I will definitely will not repurchase this as it smudges way too easily. I’ve tried using eye primer and eye shadow base. Nothing helped. It smudges even 15 minutes after I applied it. And since the pencil is quite creamy, it breaks quite easily too. So that’s a big miss.
And my last purchase was ELF Brightening Eye Colour in Ocean Dreams
Finally tried out the eyeshadow (so thankful for the brushes!) I love love love the colours. I would repurchase more of ELF eye shadows if I can find more. I don’t remember how much I got it for (probably B$3).
After reading/watching ELF reviews, I found a video tutorial for the eye shadow I purchased. (Apparently you have to read reviews first before purchasing their products, there are a lot of hits and misses.)
