Review: some ELF products

So i was really excited to get a couple of ELF products and try them out, and i wanted to let everyone know just what i thought of them.  Remember, everyone has different opinions so if you tried the product and thought something else about it, thats fine too.  You can always leave your personal opinions in the comments :)

Bronzing Brush- Now let me just say that ELF products here in the U.S. where i live are veryyy inexpensive.  Finding a brush for $1.00 even at drug stores can be very difficult.  I have heard very mixed reviews on ELF brushes, but I have to say I actually don't think they are bad for the price.  Do keep in mind however that I have never bought expensive brushes such as MAC brushes or anything so compaired to other cheaper brands, i think they are fair quality.  They aren't the softest bristles I've ever felt, but they definitely aren't rough, and the bristles didn't irritate my skin which is a major plus since my skin is super sensitive and many brushes before have just been too harsh on it.  That is true of all the ELF brushes I have tried.  I think that their bronzing brush is a little smaller than most others, but i really love the angle to it.  I wouldn't use this brush for blush, but i really do think it is good with contouring, and i haven't experienced any real problem with shedding.
Golden Bronzer-Now this product I LOVE! It comes with four different colors which have a little shimmer to them, but nothing overboard.  Just swirl your brush over all of them to pick up a little of each color and use it to really make your bone stucture stand out and give yourself a sun kissed look.  I think it is just beautiful and I love how glowy my face looks afterwards.  I will definitely purchase this again, can't beat the price either.  Plus you could even use the colors for eye shadow sometime if you wanted. 
Shimmering Facial Whip- Okay once again this price is amazing.  It is just $1.00 too.  I love putting this right on the top of my cheekbones. i just put a tiny dot on my finger and pat it on.  It isn't like obnoxious glitter or anything, it just adds a little shimmer that you can notice especially if your under light.  It's a great product for highlighting and giving a pretty almost dewy finish.  You can also add it under your brow or right above your cupid's bow to give kind of a pouty lip illusion.  It's a tiny bit sticky when you first dab it on, but its fine once it dries, and it dries super fast.  Plus let me just say, it smells amazingggg!  Kind of like citrus or like a cream cycle! mmm.

peace, love, beauty
