I have never in my life regret buying a beauty product until I used the E.L.F studio tinted moisturizer 'BB cream'. I am quite disappointed in myself about this because I always do my research and make sure that the product suits me before I buy the product, I obviously have not done enough research when I bought this BB cream or I probably just felt like spending and bought it without thinking.
I personally love E.L.F cosmetics, I think their products are very affordable and some of their products suits me very well. I was pretty mad when I found out the only Bling (jewellery & E.L.F makeup store) has moved away from my nearest mall and there is no other stores that sells E.L.F products unless I drive 30mins across town and that's not worth it. So now buying E.L.F products I have to get them online.
One day I was online shopping and I have always wanted to try a non Asian brand BB cream but I didn't want to spend 50 dollars on an Urban Decay one so I ended up trying out E.L.F cause I like some of their products.
When I received my parcel I was excited to try it, the packaging is simple and budget. The price was only 10 dollars NZD and I got one in the color 'nude' which suits my Asian skin color perfectly.
In my first week of using this I thought it was an okay tinted moisturizer. The product makes my face feels fawless in the first two days, it goes on my skin very smoothly, it does not give me the shinny effect since I have oily skin. I was just... loving it, until it gave me a very big pimple on my eyelid, my nose and all over my face! When I first notice the pimple on my eyelid I thought oh maybe Im just breaking out, I thought nothing of it so I continued to use the E.L.F tinted moisturizer. Five days later I notice another pimple on the side of my nose and I was just so curious, I thought to myself am I breaking out because Im not drinking enough water?! Or is it this BB cream I am using?! But it can't be because I never break out from using makeup, well hardly! So again I ignore this and continued to use the tinted moisturizer. At the time I was loving it, I thought that was the best non Asian BB cream I've ever used.
About two weeks after my first use I started to notice more pimples on the side of my face and so I googled this product and many people said it made them break out so badly and that is when I realized I am getting these cause of this BB cream. Now a month later, everytime I see that pimple on my eyelid it just makes me so angry that I bought the E.L.F tinted moisturizer, Oh my gawd what was I thinking?
I highly do not recommend anyone to try out the E.L.F studio tinted moisturizer, just because it's inexpensive and it makes your face looks fawless and all that, the pimples are just not worth it. I would rate this a 1 out of 5 star. Im just so mad :/
