Hey guys! My little brother graduated today! So today I’m bringing you a special review — Cenoire sent me their Eluo Ultra sonic travel toothbrush to review, and unfortunately it’s taken me forever to get this up here. I judged it and it’s performance on three things— Is it convenient? Was the head functional? And last but not least: Does it look good? In the end I decided, what sets Eluo Ultra from other electric brushes?
Appearance— The Eluo Ultra comes in a sleek pencil tube in the color of your choosing. The one I was sent happened to be a bright pink, which isn’t the color I’d have chosen, it’s available in black, white, red, purple, and many more. The longer part of the tube is the cover, which is easily removable and reveals the head and power sections.
Convenience— The bottom section also pulls back, allowing access to the battery compartment. Eluo runs on one AA battery, which is provided. It has one waterproof button that has two parts. An on/off button and a speed adjuster. The top of the cover has holes for ventilation.
Head— The head of Eluo is it’s downfall for me. It’s head is a teeny little thing, and its highest point is in the middle. That makes it uncomfortable and bouncy when the power is on. I also prefer a soft brush, but this is rather stiff. If it had a different brush head, I think that I would have found a new replacement for my usual.
Performance— Overall, I feel like Eluo is great for those who don’t spend much time in the morning getting ready, as it’s high speed is really fast and while it definitely cleans, it doesn’t feel completely clean as my manual brush does, but that’s psychological, and went away after a few days use.
Cenoire Eluo Ultra is available for $29.99 USD at http://www.cenoire.com.

I won’t take up too much of your time on this one. Zoya Wednesday is a green turquoise. The formula is watery but weirdly thick. There’s no way to get it even, and I don’t like it. Essie Turquoise and Caicos is extremely similar with a much better formula. Lancome Ultramarine Green is more blue.
Mimosa is a bright fire orange shimmer with lemonade colored glitter particles that show up, mostly in the pan.
Poppy is a robin’s egg blue shimmer that’s just really, really simple and clean.
Terracotta is a vivid, mega-intense, burgundy. It’s too intense, I can’t even. Perfect smokey eye color for green, or maybe even blue eyes.
All three colors are so intensely pigmented, it’s crazy. They’re HUGE, as far as eyeshadows go. They’re magnetic, so they fit perfectly into the magnetic Stila palettes. The only downside of these shadows is that if you want that sheer wash of color for spring or summer, you have to be super light handed. The swatches above are with barely touching the pan, and only swiping once.
Zoya Song is the most gorgeous sapphire blue shimmer in the world. In person it’s more of a deep sapphire, but when the light, and definitely when the flash hits it, it explodes into this gorgeous bright cobalt shimmer. It’s so unbelievably stunning. And to top it off? What you see above is ONE COAT. It applies like butter, and it lasts forever. This, my friends, is Zoya at it’s prime. If I could have this exact formula and finish in every single color, that’d be great. I believe this was from the Ornate collection as well, though don’t quote me on that. If it is, than Ornate is definitely one of the best collections ever released.
Once again, I’m going to rapid-post to try and catch up with myself. I’ve been swatching all along, but have had zero time to blog. Here’s Aurora from Zoya’s Ornate collection.
Aurora is a red berry with scattered, fairly good sized holographic glitter pieces. It’s not a condensed or well-established holo, it’s just a really, really nice sparkle that explodes with color when it hits the light. One of my all-time favorites. Excellent formula as well. A must-have in my opinion.
This is after four days of wear with one coat of China Glaze Fast Forward.
