e.l.f. Ariel Collection Bronzer

IMG_4009

I found this little baby at Walgreens Monday night. How could I pass up that packaging? This 2 piece set is $4.99

The package is the same size as the $1 essential powders and comes with a kabuki

This bronzer was such a let down. Simply put, it’s terrible. For starters, the bristle’s on the kabuki brush are far too coarse for the powder. This bronzer turned into a mess. The spotted parts are not shimmer, they are glitter. This might work as a highlighter if you have darker skin and a VERY delicate hand. There was glitter EVERYWHERE after I swatched this.

My camera was not focusing well, but all of those dots you see on my brush are pieces of glitter. Not flattering. Even though it was inexpensive and the packaging is adorable, it’s gotta go back.

Did you try this collection?

    I’ve never seen that but if I did I probably would have bought it for the packaging lol. I love The Little Mermaid. Too bad the actually bronzer and brush was a let down. Sorry to hear that :-/

        I haven’t really come across any of their products that I haven’t liked. I really like their Studio blushes and I use their mineral infused primer which i really like too. I have a ton of their stuff πŸ™‚

          Their blushes are great! I’m obsessed with their newest blush palette right now
