Review: ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder

Thursday, January 27, 2011

I have heard so much about this. Many have said that this is a dupe for NARS. I haven't got a chance to try any of the NARS' blushes or bronzers so I don't think I can supply decent information about the comparison. Don't worry, if I get a chance, I'll compare this with NARS or any brands that is comparable. :)

The first thing I loved about this is that the blush and bronzer is in one compact. Isn't it convenient? People don't need to bring 2 separate products in case they need a blush and a bronzer. That is definitely a 'Yes!'

Yes, you've read it right. This costs only P249.00 ($3). That is definitely a steal. You get 2 products for less than P250.

When opened, you'll get a huge mirror. Yey! It doesn't come with a brush. The picture belows shows what the product looks like up close. The color may be washed out due to lighting, which is I believe is terrible.

What Jes likes:
  • This is a very common 'like' but I will say it again, I like it because it is inexpensive. For only P250 you get two products - a blush and a bronzer.
  •  The 2-in-1 idea is genius! This is ideal for make up kits and those who are starting with make up. This idea keeps the kit from being too bulky because of separate blush and bronzer.
  • It has a huge mirror. I don't have to bring a separate mirror.
  • It stays long.
  • The blush is not too shimmery. Just fine. :)
  • It can be easily purchased from Watsons and SM Department Stores. There are also multiply sites that carry this and other ELF products.
What Jes doesn't like:
  • The packaging is made of cheap plastic. It may easily be scratched. Anyway, what should we expect for P250? :)
  • The bronzer is shimmery. Though this is bearable, it would be much better if the bronzer is matte for more natural appearance.
  • It doesn't come with a brush. (Actually, this is fine because I usually don't use the brushes that come with the packaging.)
  • There is only one shade available. The 2-in-1 idea will be more than perfect if the blush part is available in other shades.
Will Jes repurchase?
Absolutely! I love this and I recommend it to others. :) Yey ELF! I can't wait to contour my face and flaunt my structures. :)
