Review : ELF Studio Countouring Blush and Bronzing Powder

Back here girls! :) Lately I'm learning how to contouring . Well then I decide to buy ELF Studio Blush and Bronzing Powder. This product is widely known as dupe of NARS Orgasm and Laguna. But I never using any NARS product before so I couldn't make any comparation. So let's see how good it is. :3

It comes with a pretty black packaging that I love, and it has a quite big mirror inside. It looks classy for me and not bulky. Fit in perfectly in my make-up pouch. The amount of product is enough for me too. But they didn't include any brush, so prepare one by your own.

The price itself  is quite cheap. It's US$3 but I got it in here around US$ 6-7. Still affordable. And what I love from ELF is they brought so many good product with affordable price. This is really helpful for those who are still learning make-up like me but also on a tight budget. :D As a starter one, I think you shouldn't buy a high end make-up first, right?

Here's the swatch.
On packaging

Swatch on my hand

In my opinion, the blush color is kinda sheer while the bronzer color is super pigmented. I don't know but the blush color might pop up more on fairer skin type. The color in the photo above is created when I take the blush with my FINGER and NOT with a brush. Because no matter how many times I put it with a brush, it always create such a sheer color that can't be captured with my cam. But still I love the blush color. It looks really natural on me even it tooks much effort to make it more popped up. But usually I just applied it around 2-3 times and it looks good already. And I prefer the sheer natural color how the way it is. :) just suits me perfectly. For those who expected for a pigmented blush, you might skip this one.

About the bronzer color, I found there's a hint of reddish brown on it when I applied it on my face. It doesn't show any redness when I swatch it on hand. I think it's kinda weird since I expected for a dark chocolate tone color for countouring. But after blend it all, I found there's no problem about the reddish brown color anymore. The staying power is also good! That's why I love it. And don't worry about shimmer that you see in the swatch or the packaging. They didn't appear at all when you'd applied them on your face. :)

Both of them aren't chalky and stays really good. But for those who have an oily skin, it might fade away after few hours especially the blush. I think the bronzer would stay much more longer than the blush. So I would recommend this for those who find a good and cheap blush and bronzer. :)

Unfortunately ELF doesn't have any counters in Indonesia. They just available in online shop, in ready stocks or pre-order system. But nowadays there's so many online shop that has provided ELF products, so I think it wouldn't be a big matter to purchase.

-Pigmented bronzer color and natural blush color
-Elegant and slim packaging
- An enough amount of product for me

-Sheer blush color
-Only available in online shops 

Rating 4.3/5

 So far I love this product :) and I would like to try another ELF products as well. They have so many range of product. Probably I will try their famous powder brush. :D
