ELF (or is it e.l.f.) Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder
|ELF Duo Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder: Sturdy black plastic casing, arrived with some minor fallout as can be seen here|
What I can say is, if you're into duo bronzing and blush powders, you should get this. I've been using it every day for the past few days and loving it. I never really tried shading before and first kickstarted my curiosity with Korean Chamildo shading powder, which I blogged about previously.
While that first purchase of mine is still a worthwhile buy, I'd say if I got this Elf one first I wont need to get any other bronzer duo for a while.
|A closer look at the duo powder: The blush is a peachy pink with subtle gold shimmer while the bronzer is a matte brown|
|The first swipe is the blush whilst the second swipe is the bronzer.; both swipes done on the side of hand. I got fascinated by the blush powder's pretty gold touch; not too much but just nice for a healthy sheen, in my opinion.|
For a person new to the shading game, this is perfect for practice (quality and price wise) and from what I gather online, seasoned makeup enthusiasts are loving this too.
While I quite like this duo, I noticed when I dip my brush into the blusher, it tends to be a bit powdery compared to the bronzer. It's not a big deal though and still works and judging from the shade, this duo would work well on most skin types.
I usually sweep my Benefit Sugarbomb blusher over to intensify the flushed look and to highlight a bit more...and yes, loving it!
