Review: Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder



I heard a lot of raves about ELF's Studio Line. So when it was finally available here, I thought this would be the perfect time to try out some of their products.

A lot of people are saying that this is a dupe for NARS Orgasm blush. Some say, the blush is a closer dupe for NARS Deep Throat and the bronzer is a dupe for NARS Laguna bronzer. I personally don't own NARS, so I can't actually compare them.

Packaging is sleek and housed on a hard plastic.

Has a decent sized mirror useful for travel purposes. These are 2 full-size blush/bronzer for P249.

Both the colors have golden shimmers in it, but it is not crazy shimmery after applying. The blush is a subtle peachy pink shade. Blush is sheer but builable on the other hand the bronzer is very pigmented however I found it to be a little bit difficult to blend out.  I would suggest using a stippling brush to apply the bronzer quite lightly and slowly build up the color to your preference.

PROS:
  • buildable
  • budget friendly
  • full size for both product
  • available in most department stores

CONS:
  • doesn't have a brush..so make sure you have a pocket blush brush in your purse
  • The texture is a bit too powdery
  • plastic housing which can easily break if dropped
  • staying power is not that strong 

THE VERDICT:

Blush gives a healthy and glowy look. If you’re just starting out with makeup and want to explore with different types of products, this is a great one because you get two products for P249.
