Other items in the E.L.F. haul

E.L.F. tweezers... ehh
Should have known that one can't get decent tweezers for 1 USD - they are useless. Look good but the tips do not touch properly. Here's the exhibit A itself:
E.L.F.i ühedollarilised pintsetid on saast, ei soovita.

Next will be the eyeslash curlers, from the same price category. These are rather nicely packaged and even have a spare rubber with them. Can tell more about those in couple of days, after testing. Here's what they look like:
After testing I can honestly state that I see no difference - I can get the same result with just the mascara wand. Probably no fault with the curlers, it just shows that I'm a magician with mascara wands...

E.L.F's famous Studio line powder and complexion brushes were also in the haul as was the little one dollar eye brush, which was bought off me in 5 minutes with the words "you already have too many brushes anyway".
Now the only thing I did not like was that the Studio line brushes, although brand new, already showed signs of wear and tear:
They're still soft and well tapered. The complexion brush tends to whisk powder here and there when used so it must be wielded carefully. Powder brush shed a little at first, now it's ok.

E.L.F added a little freebie too, Berry Pop lip gloss. Since it's full of all sorts of shite I shall not use it myself but pass it on to someone who does not mind synthetic dyes and preservatives.
That's the entire haul. I kinda miss the one dollar eye shadow brush - it was nicely shaped and looked sturdy. Next time I'll get more of those.

Kuidas need elfi pintslid on? Ise tellisin ka prooviks just mitu tükki, loodetavasti on sama head kui EDM pintslid. Hind on küll parem :)

Esialgu tundub mulle lüll et ELFi puudripintsli asemel (see flat-top) tahaks ikkagi EDMi long-handled kabukit haarata - tundub pehmem, samuti on pikk pintslisaba harjumatu. Silmapintslit ei jõudnudki ise proovida aga ma panin nad oma uude tellimusse, siis saab neidki kommenteerida. Suur ümar jume-pintsel (otsetõlge) oli Ecotoolsi omaga võrreldes selline õhukesevõitu, väga pehme ja mulle tundus ka, et väga aldis puudrit laias kaares siia-sinna loopima. Sobib pealispuudritele aga mitte põhja pealekandmiseks. Rohkem mul hetkel pole aga varsti tulevad. Sai seda Stuudio -50% ära kasutatud :).
Hind oli seekord tavaliselst veel 50% paremgi :D
EDMil on ka täielikke saastpintsleid nagu nt see nende dome eyeshadow blender - hullemat annab otsida.
