Small ELF haulAfter seeing a wonderful review of the ELF eye Transformer on Janice's blog (Seek for Beauty) I decided to buy it just to see it for myself. See her review here if you'd like.
I also bought a concealer brush because I had been wanting a sturdy brush that I could use for my paintpots and or applying pigments alone or foiled. Let's start with the brush...
I must say it is a very soft, sturdy brush....perfect for applying paintpots, foiled pigment or emollient based makeup. Personally, I prefer to apply concealer with my ring finger, so I probably wont be using as a concealer brush very often. This one is great and was only $3.
The ELF eye Transformer
This is just going to be a very brief review...Comes with a tiny little shader brush...
Obviously it has 4 main colors, all look a bit irridescent, frosty: Greenish, bronzy-peach, Pink, and a blue-purple. The palette is called Pastel Illusions.
ELF says you can use this on top of or in combination with any of your eyeshadows to create a different color...or you can mix and match or wear these alone on the lids....
I did swatches on my arm, by themselves...
and then swatches of my MAC paintpot Blackground as a base to see the transformation...
Here are the results....Sorry if the pic looks washed out. The outcome was bright but not too vibrant.
I tried out other colors as a base (or under color) to see results using the eye transformer, here are my findings:
When used with......
Matte dark brown....Slight change almost none at all, and that's after I packed it on.
Dark Pink....Slight change.
Light Pink....almost no change.
Green....medium change, I used with a stop light green shade.
Blue....no change, blue still looked the same.
Gray....medium change, I used MAC e/s Print.
Works best with these eyeshadow finishes:Pearl
Satin w/minimal shimmers
Worked horribly on:
I paid $3 for the eye transfomer at eyeslipsface.com
That's it, talk to you all later!
