One of the biggest complaints I’m hearing about the new E.L.F. HD Blushes has to do with the application. These are so powerfully pigmented they prove a little difficult to apply and sheer out on lighter or even medium skin tones.
No worries, here’s a budget brush from E.L.F. for application!
The new E.L.F. Studio Mascara & Shadow Shield ($3) was supposed to make my life easier dude but I nearly poked an eye out using it.
This handy and quite innovative tool has a flexible silicone shadow shield which you can hold above or below your eye to catch eyeshadow fall out or mascara smears. It’s completely reusable, washable, and perfect for makeup application.
It’s just tricky to use.
Maybelline has launched a Color Tattoo Eyeshadow Brush ($2.99) with their new limited edition shades of their Fall 2012 Maybelline Color Tattoo 24 Hour Eyeshadows.
Since the brush is in an LE display I think it’s a safe assumption to say it might be limited edition as well. Although I do think they should reconsider and make it permanent.
I used it a few times and didn’t like it but its slowly grown on me. At this point, I ended up purchasing a back up since I liked the original so much and for three bucks it’s a deal and a half.
Take a look!
The new E.L.F. Studio Flawless Concealer Brush ($3) might be a tempting budget pick if you just aren’t interested in ponying up the cash for the Sephora Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush ($24).
But how similar are they?
Dior has introduced a new selection of their Backstage Brushes for Fall 2012 featuring four foundation brushes. These are merely an extension of the Dior Backstage Collection which focus on foundation application.
I have to say I was a little disappointed at this price.
