Review - E.l.f Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder

Since the day I got to know about this little thing, I wanted it BADLY. This blush and bronzing duo was on my TOP list. I was looking for it everywhere. Sadly, e.l.f cosmetics does not ship to Pakistan. But, finally I got it. I was really excited to have this.

e.l.f describes:
Create a healthy and natural glow all year long. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of color, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition.
MY experience:
I was never a bronzer person. But now, I don't go out without a bronzer most of the time. I have heard the bronzed and blushed in this palette is a dupe for NARS Laguna bronzer and NARS Orgasm blush. Some say, the blush is the dupe for NARS Deep Throat. But, I have never used NARS, so I can not actually compare them or talk about it.
This blush/bronzer duo is from the e.l.f studio line. I love the e.l.f packaging. It is decent, and for the price of it, it is not cheap at all. This duo palette has a nice full-size mirror in it. The colors in this palette are named Blushed and Bronzed. Both the colors have golden specs in it, but it is not crazy shimmery after applying.

Price: $3.00. I got it for PKR 400, which is not bad at all.
Bronzed is a nice bronzer, and is amazingly pigmented too. Which means, you don't have to use too much of it. I was really excited to use both the colors in it, but I was a little more excited about the bronzer. I would say, the wait for this duo was worth it. The pigmentation compared to it's price is amazing. Don't use too much of bronzed, else it will end up looking muddy. Very little of bronzed is all you need. It blends very easily and gives a nice natural bronzed look. It is a nice contouring color.
Blushed is a beautiful light pink color, with a 1% peach color in it. I hope that makes sense. It is pigmented, but a little powdery, which is a minus point. It will make a powder mess in the palette, as soon as you will dab your brush in the product. It is a light color, you have to build it up if you want. Or you can use it light to give nice natural glow to the apples of your cheeks.
Both the colors together looks amazing. After swatching on the finger, the blushed looks pink but, after applying on my hand it looks a bit peachy. You can see the pigmentation of both the colors. The color pay off is really good and it stays put for good 5 to 6 hours or may be more. You need to re-touch the blushed again after 6 hours, but not the bronzer.


  • Affordable.
  • Pigmented.
  • Beautiful colors.


  • Shipping is not worldwide.

This is the only bad thing I could find. I love all the e.l.f products I own.

I am more than happy to have this product and I would definitely recommend all of you to buy this if you can reach for it. I really wish that e.l.f starts shipping to Pakistan.

I hope this review was helpful. If you have this blush/bronzer duo, please share your views too. And also share that, would you like to buy this?

L'Oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss Caramel Mania - Toffee Delice [Review]

I'm a person who loves experimenting things with my makeup and hair. When it comes to changing the color, I can try the bold colors to subtle ones. Lately, I've been obsessed with Ombre and full brown hair color. I prefer hair dying my hair at home and that's why I love and prefer shampoo dyes. If you are new, and you are changing hair color at home, it's the easiest way. All you have to do is mix all the contents in a bottle, shake well and start applying. Yes, easy as it sounds.

[Review] Krylon TV Paint Stick - Orange

Makeup not only enhances your features, but also hides your flaws too!
Hiding my dark circles and finding the RIGHT concealer for the under eye circles has always been a BIG task for me. I have tried quite a few concealers, from different brands; none of them matched or could hide my dark circles properly. Until I came across orange corrector by Krylon.
