Elf Reviews

These Cosmetics that are $1 each or $3 for the Studio (Nars Dupe) are in popular talk. But does the quality match the price?
I'm going to go down the website and review each product I have used
1) Brightening Eye Color (Silver Lining) It is a very good eyeshadow quad, pigmenting fairly (+) well but for long lasting vibrant color you'll need a good base(-). In all, (0)
2) Shimmering Facial Whip (Lilac Petal) Would Not reccomend. Smells like Lemon (+) but is messy (-) and shimmer fades and drys into your skin in a few minutes (-). In all, (-)
