ELF Brush Madness!!

Hi Ladies,

how are you doing? Today, I want to share with you all my first ELF brush haul!! I was soooo excited when I got home from work and saw a pretty package waiting for me at the door... It was my ELF order!

This is what was inside the box:

I've purchased 2 times the same products because I'm planning to give them as a birthday gift for a friend who's always wanted makeup brushes!

Here's a list of everything that I got:

  • Mini Eyelash Curler
  • Small Smudge Brush
  • Complexion Brush
  • Powder Brush
  • Contour Brush
  • Concealer Brush
  • Eyeshadow "C" Brush
  • Small Precision Brush
  • Blush Brush 
  • Blushing, Bronzing and Blending Brush
  • Kabuki Face Brush
  • Black Signature Case
  • Mini Eyelash Curler
  • Eyebrow Stencil
  • Free Gift: Candy Shop Liptin
Here's a close-up view of the Black Signature Case:

There's an extra sipper in the back where you can put all your makeup inside. Very convenient and perfect size for travel.

I am very satisfied with my purchase EXECPT for one brush... the Blushing, Bronzing and Blending Brush. The bristles are so ruth, I pretty much threw it in the garbage after I touched it!

I wasn't totally surprised because I did heard some youtubbers complain about their new normal line brushes. The old ones which had brown bristles and white handles are amazing. ( I own some) But these ones with the red bristles are to avoid!!!

This will be it for this post.
Till next time...~

My Love for Burt's Bees lip balms, BUT...

Hey Ladies...

Woah it's been a long time... sorry! The weather this summer is too much at the extremes, it's either super hot and humid or thunder shower and crazy rain like today!

Anyhow, back to the topic. So I've always love my Burt's Bee lip balms, I think I must have had used dozens of them till now.

So since it's summer, I've decide to try their sun protecting lip balm in Passionfruit with SPF 8. Oh boy was it a TOTAL MISS. I believe it was the SPF factor that I really didn't like. This lip balm gives a whiteish look on the lips. It actually make you look like you're sick. Very BAD lip balm!!!! I guess it can pass if you put lipstick on top of this...

Sun Protecting lip blam in Passionfruit with SPF 8

That's all for now.
