E.L.F. Studio Blushes


Another product I like to purchase during E.L.F.'s 50 % off Studio Line are their blushes. They are normally $3, but I got these ones for $1.50 each. 


I purchased them in seven colours, and surprisingly, I use these just about every day! Here are the colours I purchased:

Colours (left to right): Blushing Rose, Mellow Mauve, Berry Merry, Fuchsia Fusion

Colours (left to right): Candid Coral, Peachy Keen, Gotta Glow

You can tell from the pictures that they come in a range of colours and the packaging is great! It comes with a mirror and the packaging is sturdy. I haven't had any of the lids or clasps break.

They apply nicely on a powder brush (I recommend using E.L.F.'s Studio Powder Brush) and you only need a tiny amount of product at first to start with and you can re-apply more if you want to build up the colour. There is a hint of shimmer in all of them with the exception of Fuchsia Fusion which has glitter in it. 

You might be wondering why the colour Gotta Glow is basically white and that's because it can act as a highlight to your cheeks if you already have a lot of natural pigmentation, of if you don't really want any colour, but you want some radiance.

Here are the swatches:

Colours (left to right): Blushing Rose, Mellow Mauve, Berry Merry ,Fuchsia Fusion, Candid Coral, Peachy Keen, Gotta Glow

At only $3 each (or $1.50 during the sale) you really can't go wrong! You can even try mixing two or more colours together on your brush (by tapping your brush into different colours) to get the shade you're looking for. And if it turns out that you don't like one of these shades after you've purchased it, you can use them as an eyeshadow as well!

My only complaint with this product is that after you've used it a few times, you'll notice the surface of the blush is "bumpy" and this indicates that the powder wasn't finely milled or ground before they pressed it. Those 'bumps' are clumps of certain ingredients that didn't get thoroughly mixed. However, I haven't really come across any changes in the functionality of the product even with this flaw.

Summary:
