$20 Perfect Makeup Kit? | ELF Brushes & Makeup
So a couple of weeks ago ELF (Eyes Lips Face) sent me a coupon code for this large beauty set for only – $20! Very CHEAP! I usually buy ELF in stores and not online but this one was so cheap I could not pass it up! Not to mention there were a few items in the set that I have never tried. Couldn’t find a reason for not buying this kit…so…I had to snatch up this deal.
It arrives! I opened up in front of my camera and slowly began taking stuff out one-by-one. So far so good on the makeup products. Now on to the brushes! (Saving the best for last.) I was pretty disappointed with 2 things.
1. Some of the brushes look “uneven” like it was a machine error. Not bad enough to complain but a bit annoying. [see video for each brush]
2. There was some powdery white “dust” in a few of the big brushes. Once again not bad enough to complain but mostly annoying.
You get what you pay for! Definitely. This would be a good makeup starter kit for anyone wanting to learn about makeup. You learn by watching others and doing it yourself. This kit is missing an eye shadow and a foundation for it to be a full beginner’s kit but you definitely have the basics. Although cream eyeliner is not basic I prefer it over the traditional liners.
Besides the “white stuff” in the brushes I would definitely recommend this kit. I recommend washing brushes before you use them anyway. You never know what equipment they may have been manufactured on or what chemical they are subjected to.
