Mmm having a little bit of bad luck with E.L.F. lately haven’t I? My last few purchases have been a real miss sadly but I’m still actively trying to find the best budget picks from the brand.
E.L.F. Cosmetics Eyelid Primer a buck….we taking bets on whether I’ll love it or leave it? Who’s in?
Do you love it?
Do you leave it?
Find out what I think after the jump!
Baviphat is a Korean brand that has a bit of a Benefit vibe due. Packaging features retro images of girls and it kinda gives me a Benefit-like feel for some reason.
Recently the brand became available in Malaysia and the lovely Sue from My Women Stuff sent me over a few items to try out
I’ve been obsessed with getting my hands on some of the offerings from the brand for a while but I had a dickens of a time trying to get their site to load so I can browse the selection.
I thought I’d start off my dive into Baviphat with their Peach Magic Lip Tint.
Let’s have a look!
I gotta admit that I thought the Bare Escentuals The Perfect Gift Collection was an ickle boring but part of it’s appeal was 1. it’s packaging and 2. its auto delivery status on QVC.
Basically Bare Escentuals packaged this up on an auto delivery which offered new seasonal colors every few months. Fabulous gift in my humblest which is why I ordered some as just that but I couldn’t go without getting one for myself because they came in a hat box. Gush! Totally slayed me. Couldn’t resist that kinda packaging. I know, I know I shouldn’t give into the packaging demons but I couldn’t resist plus hey it was a mere $36 dollars for several full size BE products. Not a bad deal all around.
But the colors…well they are a bit meh but wait until you see them in action!
E.L.F. has a new Complete Coverage Concealer Palette for $3. I have to admit that I do believe concealer is a splurge item. I’d give away vital organs for a concealer that works well at making me look fresher and more flawless. I suffer from puffiness under my eyes, minor fine lines, and a bit of darkness so a great concealer, for me, is worth its weight in gold.
However, from time to time I like checking out budget concealers because you honestly never know when you might strike gold such is the case with Maybelline Dream Mousse Concealer, that stuff is pure, solid gold concealer joy. Sigh but finds like this are rare indeed.
So maybe E.L.F. Studio Complete Coverage Concealer might be another winner?
