E.L.F Contouring blush and Bronzing powder Review, Swatch and Overall Verdict

Seasons may come and leave but my love for bronzers, highlighters and blush will always be alive [ Makeup Fanatic Problem]. I absolutely admire makeup products which adds a perfect definition to the face. A sweep of rouge and bronzer over the cheeks is the surest way to add warmth to overall look. As we are talking about my craze for makeup, lets jump into my purchase which is E.L.F cosmetics contouring  blush and bronzing powder duo in ST.Lucia. I have used eye shadows and primers from elf and totally loved it as they provide  friendly price tag with quality products. I have heard that this duo is dupe for Nars  orgasm blush and  laguna bronzer, therefore purchased it. Let’s see how it turned up…

Packaging :-

The elf duo comes in sleek matte black plastic compact kit with a big mirror inside. The brand name along with the product name is printed with white font on the front lid while the back side has a small sticker with shade name. The compact contains two equal sections of bronzer and blush.  I like the overall look of packaging, it’s sturdy and travel friendly as well [BTW I specifically loved the huge mirror and its huge quantity] .

My take on the product:-

Pigmentation/texture/shade and staying ability:

The elf contouring  blush and bronzer duo comes in three different shades namely st.lucia,Antigua and turkes and caicos.  I am one of those persons who takes time while choosing bronzers as wrong shade of bronzer can ruin the whole look, I prefer bronzers to be matte and warm toned.  I absolutely loved the bronzer in this duo than the blusher as it’s more pigmented and soft whereas the blush is comparatively poor in pigmentation. Texture wise they feel quite soft   and   looks shimmery on the pan but once applied the shimmer is barely visible , basically it appears matte on the skin .  The shade st.lucia has medium brown matte bronzer and peach pink  blush , the bronzer shade is perfect for my skin tone.  I like the fact that the duo has decent color pay off and they both blend amazingly however I am not a big fan of the blush  as I prefer blushes to be much pigmented and soft  than this one. Once blended the blush and bronzer gives a  nice flush of definition on the face .

I did apply this duo without a primer and it stayed for 3-4 hours and with primer 7-8 hours which is not bad at all. In terms longevity the duo is definitely  nice, specifically the bronzer which once applied does not looks patchy and stays for good amount of time.

Overall Verdict:-

The elf contouring blush and bronzer duo is ideal for people who do not prefer serious in depth  contouring , its one of those duo which can be ideally used on the go if you  are in rush . For day time or night time if you prefer something subtle yet attractive on the cheeks then these duo can be used , it has excellent bronzer for the perfect dimension  and a blush for the radiance . They have good color pay off and blends easily , also one needs to be careful while using the bronzer as its quite pigmented . As per the price the duo is definitely worth a try for novice, however I felt that elf could have done better with blush.
