However, there has been one brush that I have found to be shockingly poor from Eyes Lips Face Cosmetics and that is the ELF Smudge Brush. Now in my daily eye makeup routine I tend to reach for the ELF Essentials Eye Shadow Brush along with the ELF Essential Eye Crease Brush. These two brushes are amazing and cost just £2.00 each so it is no surprise that I decided to order the…

My Most Reached For Eyeshadow Brushes

My Most Reached For Eyeshadow Brushes Real Techniques Dupe – Oval Shaped Eyeshadow Brush (link) My first most reached for brush would definitely have to be my Real Techniques Oval Shaped Eyeshadow Brush dupe which I got in my Real Techniques Bold Metals Brush Dupes set.

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzing Cream Review

When I tried the powder version of the ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzing Cream I wasn’t that bowled over by it. I did initially like the blush however the more I used it, the more chunky glitter I seemed to uncover. As for the bronzer it just did not work for me.
