I have been dying to try out e.l.f studio since i heard about it from all the American bloggers, so when e.l.f.'s twitter were giving away products everyday i had to be part of it & i WON!!! haha! So i got to pick out a product for free!!
I instantly went to my wish list & was going to pick one of them but then thought to pick a product i wouldn't buy for myself as i was already planning on buying the others!
So here's what i picked!
The e.l.f. studio bronzer in golden bronzer
I love golden bronzers so picked this above the other shades; firstly the packaging is so much nicer than the regular e.l.f. line so you can get this out in public to reapply, secondly i noticed this didnt have the sickening smell that some of the the regular line has which apparently is blood orange! i've eaten a blood orange & it dont smell like that! My final first impression when i swatched it was that it doesnt crumble away, i have bought a regular line bronzer before & when you swipe it so much products comes away, its almost like its too dry if that makes sense so it crumbles & that bronzer completely fell apart after a couple of uses did anyone else experience anything similar? this appears to have been recified by e.l.f.
so what e.l.f. says about this shade
'Golden Bronzer- An illuminating shimmer that is subtle and radiant. Ideal for summer or year-round.'
What I Think
To be honest i wanted to love this product but it's not the most effective bronzer on me as it doesnt add colour necessary but a golden shimmer on my skin, which does look lovely but just not dark enough for my skin tone, on my lighter birds this will add you some colour as well as a shimmer. If you would like a swatch just comment & i'll get it done tomorrow evening for you.
Overall this is a great highlighter on me & thumbs up to e.l.f for releasing a more 'professional' line that still doesn't break the bank & does the trick, i can't wait to play with the rest of the products!!!
Hope you will all have a fantastic weekend i'm working all of it so wont see much of it! ah well its money to buy contest prizes!!! i'm gonna do 2, a little one on twitter & then a full on one on here so follow me on twitter if you're part of the club @nicolavc86 !!
Love you all & cya soon!
Oh btw i got hit by a van today walking to work!!! this blue van got really close to me then clipped my elbow!!! the cheeky bastard didn't even stop to see if i was ok! & now i've got the biggest bruise on my elbow & in some pain!! then i sliced my thumb open making a customer a sandwich! ah well i am loving the job, the girls i work with are the best!!
Thanks for reading
