I have not posted at all this week because this is my way of showing respect for Mizzou, Yale, and the latest tragedy in Paris. It has been an overwhelming week in the news, and as a blog for social progress, I wanted to have a week of silence. I hope that everyone can keep themselves informed about the events going on, and more importantly, listen before your speak (or tweet, or post on FB). It is great to speak up, but just make sure you are aware of the whole story, with every detail and every differing point of view.
My Humble Opinion –
Pluses? The black, rectangular packaging for this product was sleek and simple, and the smell of this product reminds me of honey oatmeal. Otherwise, the exfoliator was a bit rough, and the gooey balm that holds the exfoliating brown sugar granules together does not easily melt on my lips. So, in general, it did it’s job and took dead skin off my lips, but I don’t really understand why it is a best selling product for e.l.f. The granules hurt my lips, the balm left a sticky residue, and it took a helluva long time to scrub away at the dead skin on my lips. I’d rather buy something more expensive and have it effectively and painlessly scrub my lips clean.
Ok, to be fair, I wanted to snag this 1 dollar brush to serve as a concealer brush, lip brush, and Colourpop eyeshadow brush. Alas. it is not fit for any of these purposes. As a synthetic brush with a small, precise tip, I was surprised by how little pigment this brush picked up from the products. Even the creamiest lipstick or thickest concealer did not transfer onto this brush, and every application was disappointingly sheer. However, sometime I use it to apply overly bold lipstick – the brush transforms a bold look into a fresh everyday look.
Anyone else try these products and want to defend them in all their (possible) glory? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
