Review & Swatches : Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

/ Leave a Comment
This is a quite popular Elf product from their Studio Line! Many people compare it to the NARS duo that contains Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer! I don't own this duo though, so I can't do a comparison! Anyway, here's what the Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder looks like:

It's the typical Studio Line packaging, sleek black packaging that feels nice and sturdy! I love the fact that it's matte and it doesn't get dirty easily! It feels and looks so expensive, you could easily pass it for a high-end product! Good job Elf! When you open it up, you get a nice big mirror and 2 separate powders! You get 8g of product in total, so each powder is 4g! :)

It's so pretty! :) Anyway, let's move on to the actual product! On the left you get a beautiful coral-pink blush with golden shimmer and on the right you get a quite dark bronzer with slight golden shimmer! None of these powders contain glitter, just shimmer! Both powders are quite finely milled and extremely pigmented, so use a light hand with them! Using a duo-fibre (stippling) brush with the blush and tapping off the brush you'll use with the bronzer will help you avoid putting on too much! They blend easily and they stay pretty long on my oily cheeks! Here's what they look like on my bare skin, packed on and unblended, so that you can see the colors:

As you can see the camera picks up the golden shimmer in the blush, but unfortunately it doesn't pick up the slight golden shimmer in the bronzer! :(

This amazing duo retails for only £3.50, which is dirty cheap, if you consider that you get 8g of 2 extremely pigmented powders (so a little goes a long way) in a high-end packaging! You can purchase this duo online here !
