Bling, bling bitches.
This post was made for me to say that…I’ve been holding it in for so long so now I can say it…just rolls off the tongue….think of it in slow motion, bling…bling…bitches.
Sorry, I’m utterly silly today and easily amused as I’ve been watching PopSickTV for a majority of the day, it’s Portuguese Avo madness and it’s the ideal youTube Channel for procrastinating your day away if you happen to be part or full blood PorkChop.
Anyway, ’bout the bling…!
E.L.F. Cosmetics has a new Gem Tools Collection that has released for Holiday 2011 with a $3-$5 price tag.
This collection is made up of 11 brushes and tools that feature pink and gem studded handles. I have to admit that the collection evoked images of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in me rather than Christmas.
The E.L.F. Studio Brush Collection has some very nice brushes available so I figured that the Gem Collection would also have a bit of quality backing it and I was right. Dare I say that the brush I tried out was even softer and nice than some of the Studio Brushes I already own. I tried the foundation brush which is an ickle on the smaller side but still has soft brushes, decent density so it’s not flopping around when you use it, and no problems with shedding or splitting. I likey! Alot!
Packaging…well..mmm It’s not very festive to me and like I said I got a BCA vibe from it. E.L.F. would have done well creating a silver or red packaging to get more of a Christmas theme going on here.
The brush is a metallic fuchsia pink with a handle that’s bedazzled with medium sized gems. It’s actually pretty well made if not an ickle gaudy. I used it a few days and I was pleasantly surprised the little gems didn’t fall off through a few uses, two washes, and several drops on the floor.
I’m not sure I’d recommend them for the more mature, sophisticated makeup lover but I think they’d make a rather fun pressie for younger girls or teens! The quality is there, granted they aren’t MAC brushes but they aren’t entirely bad either!
