Elf’s Ariel Beauty Book – First Impressions and Swatches

Today, on my youtube channel, I will be releasing a video where I discuss my thoughts for the new Elf Ariel Beauty book.  Below, I will be providing photos of the product itself as well as swatches. The photos of the swatches was taken in natural light with no flash.  To hear my initial thoughts in regards to the Ariel beauty book, click on the video above.  Please, keep in mind these are but first impressions, and not a review. Also, I would like to make a brief note after I did the video, I found out that it is best to take care when opening the book and how you hold it. I accidentally snapped the upper right elastic, whilst freeing it to open; and when I was trying to take photos I held the left page open using one hand, with the directions displayed, the unsupported weight, split the flap.  This is just something to keep in mind. I will be fixing these mishaps later with tape and some glue.

  If you all would like me to follow up with an extensive review later via youtube or my blog (or both) please feel free to let me know.  I have done a tutorial on youtube using this beauty book; if you wish to see it click on this link: http://youtu.be/diPxzgXpIh8

I bought the Ariel beauty book online for ten dollars (plus shipping). I love the sketched art on the cover.

When you open up the book, on the left, there is a shell mirror. This side, opens up on the upper right corner to a guide for two types of makeup looks.

Located to the right, is all your beauty essentials displayed in a very organized manner– nine different eye shadows, a small bronzning brush, two bronzers (one dark, and one light), a lip gloss, and an eye shadow brush.

FTC: I AM NOT AFFILIATED WITH EYES LIPS FACE COSMETICS (AKA ELF COSMETICS). I AM NOT BEING PAID BY THEM FOR THIS POST. THIS PRODUCT WAS PURCHASED BY ME WITH MY OWN MONEY. ALL THOUGHTS ARE MY OWN UNBIASED. I GIVE MY HONEST OPINION.
