ELF Studio Line Blush

I've tried quite a few products from ELF, and whilst there were a lot of disappointments, there are a couple of things which I absolutely love, namely three items from the Studio Line - the eyebrow kit, Kabuki and flat-topped Powder brush. So I thought it was time to try a few more of their studio line products and decided on the blush. After a bit of research on Makeupalley to see which shades had got the best reviews and recommendations, I made my order. 

I love the packaging of the ELF Studio Line blushes. They're the same size and design as NARS blush (minus the rubber packaging) with the added bonus of a little window so you can see at a glance which shade it is.

L-R
Pink Passion, Mellow Mauve and Blushing Rose
The compacts each feature a little mirror inside, very handy for touch-ups on the move.

 Pink Passion
This vibrant, bubblegum pink looks rather scary in the compact but once applied to cheeks it gives a beautiful natural flush. It's highly pigmented so only a small touch with the brush is needed and it's easily buildable so you can choose whether to have a subtle blush or a more intense colour for evenings out.

 Mellow Mauve
Mellow Mauve offers a very natural looking hint of colour to add a touch of warmth to the cheeks. When I see this colour I always think of Kim Kardashian's makeup for some reason, a gorgeous matte pink/mauve that looks natural but glamorous.

Blushing Rose
This is a beautiful berry shade which I think is perfect for this time of year to give a natural flushed glow as if you've spent the afternoon frolicking in the snow! This blush is smooth and silky, blends beautifully and gives a slight shimmer with the gold reflects.

Overall I'm very impressed with ELF's Studio Line blushes. They're soft, easy to blend and highly pigmented. Amazing quality for just £3.50! I'll try and feature some in a few FOTD posts to show how they look.

ELF Studio Line blushes are priced at £3.50 and are available to buy here

  8. I have this blush in the shade Candid Coral and I love that in the summer! I agree, I think the brand can be pretty hit or miss, but the studio line has a few little gems. I love the flat top powder brush too. xxx

  14. I've never been very happy with the ELF products i've bought and often found the colours as shown on the site weren't true to the products.
    These look really nice though, colours and packaging x
