I have never reviewed a blush palette before, I stand corrected. I have been using the E.L.F cosmetics powder blush palette of late and I thought I should review it for you because you know, you are my girls… and guys!
E.L.F cosmetics powder blush palette
E.L.F cosmetics is an international brand and is not readily available in SA but as you know, there are always means and ways to get our hands on these yummy makeup products. Nowadays we have online vendors that sell international makeup at a ridiculous marked up price, but hey… Customs. I got my palette from Lungi as a birthday present and I was thrilled!!
My E.L.F cosmetics powder blush palette is in Dark it consists of 4 shades ranging from pinks to deep terracotta shades. You can mix and match these shades to create looks.
How to use
You can use the shades individually and you can also mix them to your liking.
Apply the blush to the apples of your cheeks and blend in circular motions.
You can also use as eyeshadow
How I use it
After applying my foundation, powder, Highlighter and contour, I apply this blush lightly using a big blush brush between my highlight and contour. Then I blend it until it is seamless. I also use it as eyeshadow. Definitely been enjoying that!
First thing that I will say, is that this blush is very pigmented, so you have to use it very sparingly else things can go wrong very quickly. Pigment is always a good thing in my books but I am a little concerned for someone who is starting but the trick is to blend until you are happy.
The shades are stunning. I love all of them especially the deep terracotta one! That is my favourite as I feel that the shade pays off well against my skin tone.
As an eyeshadow, it is a dream!! The pigment and the colours are absolutely stunning! I am really enjoying this palette more as an eyeshadow than blush if I am being honest.
This palette gets a definite yes from me. It’s a palette that I am enjoying in my stash and I am very happy with it.
