OMG. I am totally blown away.
I received the rest of my prize from the competition mentioned in an earlier post. I really can't say enough nice things about E.L.F. Cosmetics (Eyes, Lips, Face) - they are a real find. Because they forgot to send three of my items, they generously threw in the following bonuses:
Therapeutic Conditioning Balm in "Strawberry Creme" - vitamins A & E with shea butter.
Hypershine Gloss in "Joy" - super shiny reflective gloss that stays on for ages.
Plus, (this is the best one!) an e.l.f. cosmetics bag, similar to the one pictured:
Plus my original prizes came through and I have tested each of them:
Natural Radiance Blusher in "Shy" - this is a beautiful shade, goes on smoothly and isn't too overbearing, just a nice hint of healthy colour.
Plumping Lip Glaze in "Plum Pout" - this is my favourite one, you apply the clear glaze first, then apply the colour on top. The thing that annoys me most about plumping lip glosses is that most of them taste like battery acid. This lip glaze smells subtly of strawberries and is very pleasant to apply. Stays on for ages and does just what it says.
Brightening Eye Colour in "Silver Lining" - I have generally found eyeshadow to be a difficult area - the texture can be cakey or the colour just not right, or they can get all gluggy and weigh down your eyelids!.
This one however, gets it just right - the colours are perfect and the consistency is light and smooth and it's easy to forget you are wearing it.
I have noticed they have a 30% off sale going at the moment and if you sign up you get a chance to win $100 worth of e.l.f. cosmetics.
They did an excellent job of looking after me so it's the least I can do to give them a bit of a plug!
