Sarah M.'s Beauty Product Reviews | Page 2
A fan of mine of facebook bought me the "essentials kit" which came with red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, pink, copper, black with blue sparkles and white with gold sparkles and I'm completely in love. The kit also came with all the brushes offered, two makeup bags, a primer and an eyeliner seal.
The primer is horrible! It actually caused the makeup to crease, and the eyeliner seal, which was meant to be used with the detail brush and the eye dust was alright, but the dusts themselves are wonderful and they've lasted me a long time. I use them almost every day and I'm considering ordering more for myself.
Cakey, but good coverage for Winter.
I really wouldn't use this product outside of the Winter months because I find it to be way too heavy and I suspect that it may give me some not so favorable pimples if I leave it on my face too long, although that could just be my overly sensitive skin.
The colors are great and the finish, which is very matte and dream-like, is very desirable.
I really like the packaging, although it is a bit heavy, the glass is not breakable from my not-so-graceful experience and takes up less space in my train case.
Except the highlight colors, this book is amazing.
This really was the best $5 I've spent on 12 eyeshadows ever. I use this book all the time, especially the more pigmented and darker colors. The tutorial attached really isn't the greatest thing ever, but I've learned that the only thing to improve a smokey eye is to practice, practice, practice!
Not the best beauty book.
ELF has some pretty awesome beauty books, the smokey eye one is my absolute favorite, but this one has it's problems.
The product is meant to be a dupe of the famous Urban Decay Naked palette and the colors are close, but a bit off. It's worth $5 to have and play around with, though.
It's not perfect, but for the price it really can't be beat. It doesn't dry/flake out after 8+ hours of wear and it stays put. I've tried many eyeliners within the price range and this is the best by my findings.
