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.

My package ! It turned out the seller was from Kuching FML just nearby my house haha the postman was like “WTF ini amoi tinggal dekat kenapa nak guna pos? Apa macam ini.”

Photobucket

Step-by-step unboxing haha cause I like unwrapping packages.

Photobucket

Bubble wrap! 🙂

Photobucket

Awkward picture of me unwrapping the bubble wrap ^^

Front and back.

Close-up on ingredients and instructions.

Photobucket

Love the packaging. Very professional and solid.

Photobucket

You can see my Lumix ZR3.

Photobucket

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.

Photobucket

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 🙂

Photobucket

Photobucket

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.

Photobucket

Photobucket

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.

Photobucket

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!!

Well I’m gonna hope for the best and do my best since luck has not been on my side this past week.

An attempt to take a sexy-ish picture instead of my usual smiley doe eyed pictures but hahaha fail.

It feels good for once, that I’m not expecting anything at all. No expectations is a liberating feeling. I don’t expect commitment or reconciliation.  I’m glad with how things are, at least. Let everything go with the flow, I’ll live my life and see where the stream directs me.

I got my hair permed for the first time in 18 years today! And I have no regrets! I love it. It’s not high maintenance lah (I wouldn’t know LOL only had it for 4 days) but I’m loving it! No more fuss than say, putting on deororant before going out?

I’m so pleased with it! I’ve had people come up to me and say “Cantiknya rambut kamu amoi!” and random salesman in town come up to me LOL not sure he’s hamsap or what but yay I’m so happy to have compliments on my hair!

I’m been having the worst case of weeps and pains this month. Something is off with my menstrual cycle and I’ve also been feeling homesick and lonely and having many petty tiffs with him lately. Not a very nice month, though I’m glad finals is done.

I think too much sometimes, but my brain is just wired that way. I think all the time, with super-mega-turbo booster whirring in my head and inevitably too much thinking leads to brain and emotional drain.

Anyways, I’m too lazy to do anything so I’m gonna just post some camwhore pictures (edited only in colour) and call it a day. Have so many series to catch up on!

Photobucket

I was very free

 

Photobucket

hence the pictures
