Does E.L.F Brush Shampoo stand up to the test?

During one of my trips to Winners I found the E.L.F Brush Shampoo for $2.00! So I had to try it out on my brushes.

An anti-bacterial brush cleanser for thorough cleaning in-between makeup applications. Disinfects brushes to provide a fresh and clean application every time. Washes away traces of dirt, makeup, oil and debris from your brush while conditioning the hair to provide a clean and soft application for every use.

I decided to use one of my orange stained blush brushes. It is soo hard to clean white bristles if you don`t have the right tools.

Cleanse brush regularly by massaging a small amount of the shampoo with water and working it through the bristle from the base of the brush outward.
Rinse thoroughly and gently squeeze out excess water. Reshape the bristles and lay flat on a clean cloth to fully dry before next use.

WOW!!! The brush is really clean. Honestly it looks better than how it was when I used my QUO brush cleaner.

This E.L.F Brush Shampoo gets a definite recommend from me :)

FOTD: Quick & Easy Smokey Eyes using E.L.F

I know I have been posting a lot of E.L.F products lately. Last month they had a 60% off sale and I had to take advantage!

This is the look I wore out on my date with the bf. As usual I was running late and had to make-up time quickly :) I just layered Charcoal all over my lid & covered up the harsh lines in Wild Wheat. 

Honestly it took less thank 5 minutes!

Affordable Make-up organization: E.L.F Small Makeup Holder

I'll admit my brushes are never really organized.
I keep them in 2 places: clear container & a brush holder in my train case.

The fact is I can never find what I want when I want it!  E.L.F sent me their Small Makeup Holder to try out.

"The stylish and sleek makeup compartment holds your brushes, makeup pencils, tools and more. The professional storage holder keeps everything organized for quick use. The luxurious material is easy to clean and durable for storing on countertops or in cabinets"

So far I'm a huge fan. I can fit 10 -15 brushes in there with ease.. without it falling over...LOL. This holder is $5.00 and can be found on in the Studio section.
