Review: Elf Studio Cool Bronzer

Posted: June 18, 2012 in Rainy Reviews, Vain and Bimbotic in the Rain

Today I’m going to review a new (and my first) bronzer from ELF!

So I’m gonna be super hardworking and do a long review!

So ELF stands for Eye Lips Face and it’s like the US version of Silkygirl. Dirt cheap all the products are like $1 to $5 tops LOL. Seriously the Americans have such a high purchasing power. I got it from a shop on Facebook.

So what is a bronzer? It is basically something warm-toned that you put on your face lol to give yourself a tan, healthy look. Not tan exactly, just a little sun-kissed and not gilababi vampire pale. They’re normally golden.

I got the ELF Studio Cool Bronzer because the shade suit my fair skin. There are two other variations, the Golden Bronzer and the Warm Bronzer. They are both too dark and have shimmer. The Cool is matte (yay!). Shimmer gives a nice glow but it’s not good for a natural look and anyways the Cool one is good because I use it for contouring too because it’s matte!

Decription for ELF Cool Bronzer: Create a healthy looking glow all year round! The sheer soft powders provide the perfect hue of color. Blend all 4 colors together to achieve a blend of perfection or choose your favorite color or colors to mix, match and blend.

Close up of shades: I use the pinkish one as blush, the light brown for contour and the white as highlight. And all 4 for bronzer.

SOME VERY UGLY (unedited) PICTURES OF ME WITHOUT MAKEUP AND FLASH UP NEXT. Please tahan.

My face looks more hollow and cheekbones more defined as you can see 🙂 (No lens so close my eyes haha)

Photobucket

Before picture. This camera doesn’t show the bronzing effect much, but I’d show you the contouring. Now remember, I’m only a beginner.

Photobucket

Yay slimmer nose.

Photobucket

My nose contour 🙂

Okay honestly it is a little dark in real life (the contour) but it looks wonderful in pictures! Maybe I should mix the brown with the white  to make it lighter.

Some other pictures with my eyebrows drawn. You can see how my cheekbones are more defined. And didn’t contour my nose HAHA I LOOK LIKE VOLDEMORT.

Personally I love this bronzer! It gives me a beautiful, healthy glow instead of the obvious fake BB-creamed fairness and evenness. It doesn’t make me look tanned, but it just gives me such a glow that I keep staring at my own face. You have to see it in real life! I’m not making it up, IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE. I feel that without bronzer my face is just 2D because I use BB cream and I’m fair and maybe some blusher that’s all. With bronzer, my face is smaller, and glowy and my cheekbones are more defined. I love makeup.

Some iPod pictures that shows the glow (all from Instagram):



As you can see my face looks very glowing ahah especially the shadowy side.

I give the ELF Bronzer a 4.5/5 rating. It’s awesome except I wish it came with a brush because my brush is super big and I don’t want to bring it around and also it’s 3USD converted to Ringgit should be 12 right but I paid RM35 including postage for this 😦

Now some unrelated stuffs:

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! I love you so much Daddy that this picture of me so ugly also I post. He’s my hero! He actually cooked himself his own Father’s Day dinner LOLOL instead of going out to eat like normal.

High-low skirt I tried on. Surprisingly I look okay I thought it’d make me look short/weird.

More unrelated:

The Secret works!! I got a job opportunity which is really worth it because I kept using the Secret to attract money into my life! I’m so grateful!! Now I can shop more!!

Shall review my new Etude House Eyebrow Liner later!

    I think we have similar skin tone, which is medium fair, so I guess I’m so gonna buy this bronzer too 🙂 I read the Golden palette is lighter and shimmery? salam dari Indonesia 🙂
