Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

Grace @ No.21 Monday, April 22, 2013



Hello lovelies! Sorry for constant massive reviews about e.l.f products. To be honest, I am a person that try 'one' things until I get tired of. For example, I'm a pasta girl, I eat all kinds of pasta for a week until i get tired of it and then don't touch or eat pasta for few months- of course after few months, start eating pasta again. Anyways, after I had such a good impression with e.l.f's nail polishes I bought quite a lot of e.l.f products from their website. I purchased this particular one just because I heard it is a dupe of NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo. Unfortunately, I don't own NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo so I can't compare it on this post as of right now but soon I will compare both! Essentially, there are two products to review - the blush and the bronzer.




Product description : Create a healthy and natural glow all year long with the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of color, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition. This convenient compact has just what you need to achieve a gorgeous glow anytime, anywhere.

Ingredients : Talc, Mica, Magnesium Stearate, Ethylhexyl Methoxycinnamate, Paraffinium Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Hydrogenated Polyisobutene, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Iron Oxides (CI 77491 CI 77492 CI 77499), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77981), Red No.40 Lake (CI 16035), Ultramarine Blue (CI 77007)

The blush : The blush has little shimmery peach/pink color. It has a good pigmentation when you swatch but also very powdery. When I first used it, I was bit having a hard time getting the color on my chick - the blush is very light color and I have darker skin tone. But after applying few layers, the color came perfect and gave subtle peach/pink glow. Very easy to blend with brush.

The bronzer : Medium tan color. I really enjoy using a good bronzer to give a definition to my face since I have roundy shape. I was surprised how pigmented it is. Even I have a little darker/medium morena skin tone, bronzer shows up perfectly. It wasn't too dark nor too light on my face. It is also very easy to blend with brush so after I blended around, it defined my face without giving me a fake look. The bronzer doesn't have any glitter in it, and it doesn't have any orange or yellow undertone.

Packaging : The case is very simple and sturdy. It contains mirror so good to use it on the go. It does not contain brush. 

Likes: I love the color of the blush and the bronzer. Blush makes my skin glow. Bronzer has no wierd undertone. No weird smell. worth more than its price.

Dislikes: Too powdery therefore I had to apply several times. Blush is hard to pick up the color.

  4. I have the same duo and I love it as well. I just wish the bronzer was matter. I love the shimmery blush because I like glowy checks and highlight, but this looks amazing on you! :)

    1. Oh, thank you very much Krystal! :) I love the bronzer but wish the blush was little less powdery/more pigmented or should have gotten another color. xx
