Review : Elf Mineral Glow in Shimmer & in Bronzed and a little comparison! ;)

At first I wasn't sure if I'd buy them or not, the word "shimmer" terrifies me when referring to powders, because I have oily skin, so I don't need something that will make me even more shiny!! But I asked the girls on Elf's group on FB (hey girls!! mwah!!! ) and they told me that I should buy them! So, I had to obey lol ! Let's see how they look like:



Let's see what elf says on their website:

Whether you want to create a  subtle healthy glow or summer tan with our 'Bronzed Mineral Glow' or illuminated and shimmering skin with our soft pink 'Shimmer Mineral Glow', these sheer, natural powders will leave your skin looking and feeling healthy and radiant.
After following this beauty regime you will noticeably feel and see the pure difference e.l.f. Natural Mineral Makeup can do! All of our mineral glow powders are 100% mineral based with no parabens, no preservatives and no chemical dyes.

Here are some swatches and a little comparison between the Bronzed and the bronzer from Elf's Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder:

"Shimmer" has a slightly pink undertone and isn't shimmery or glittery, it just adds a nice glow to your face when lightly dusted! You can apply it a bit heavier on the apples of your cheeks or even on your shoulders or cleavage for a night out! ;) "Bronzed" is quite dark for my skin, but it will be perfect for conturing, since it's matte, or during the summer when I'll be tanned!! The powder itself in both products is very finely milled, it feels like silk!

When comparing "Bronzed" to the bronzer from Elf's Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in the jar/pan they don't look different, but they are! When swatched "Bronzed" has a reddish undertone, while the bronzer from the contouring palette has an orange undertone and it's a biiiit darker!

"Shimmer" and "Bronzed" come in a 10g plastic jar and they retail for £5.00 each! You can buy both products here: Elf's Mineral Glow
