Shopping Bag [6]: E.L.F. Studio Line

A few weeks ago, there was a coupon code for 50% off all "Studio" items on so I made an order for a few things I'd had my eye on for a while.

My Entire Purchase

Kabuki Face Brush: Original Price - $3.00

Compared with a MAC Kabuki (left). E.L.F. Kabuki (right). 
The MAC Kabuki is definitely more dense than the E.L.F. one, but the synthetic bristles of the E.L.F. one is softer than the natural bristles of the MAC. I will mention though, I've had my MAC Kabuki for almost 5 years & it's been washed countless times. Also, I would've liked the handle on the E.L.F. to be a little bit longer.

Stipple Brush: Original Price - $3.00

Compared to the MAC 187 (left). E.L.F. Stipple Brush (right).
Again, the bristles of the 187 is much denser, but the bristles of the E.L.F one. is softer.

Angled Contour Brush for eyes: Original Price - $3.00
At this time, I don't have anything to say about this brush since I haven't used it yet. 

"Studio" Eyelash Curler (left).  "Studio" Mini Eyelash Curler (right).

Comparison between the two.
I was disappointed that the Mini is flat. I tried it out once on outer corner lashes & it was extremely difficult to use :(

 Compared with the original E.L.F. Eyelash Curler (left). "Studio" Eyelash Curler (right). 
The overall size is pretty much the same, but the "Studio" Curler is slightly more rounded than the original. The "Studio" curler doesn't have the same spring effect that the original has.

 "Studio" blush in Gotta Glow: Original Price - $3.00

A white powder with gold shimmers. I think this is a great alternative to MAC Vanilla pigment for a cheek highlight as it gives a nice sheen without being overly shimmery or glittery.

"Studio" Cream Liner in Midnight: Original Price - $3.00
I was hoping this would be a noticeable navy blue on my eyes like it looks in the pot, but on the skin it looks more like a charcoal gray/blue. The product itself is very creamy & easy to use. It's not bad, just not what I thought it would be color-wise.
