e.l.f. Studio Cream Blush
0.53 oz.-$6-Made in China-Permanent
Can you believe that I snagged these at my local Dollar Tree for just a buck each? Trust me when I say I was excited! I do believe these were the only two shades my Dollar Tree carried, and in addition, they also had the studio eyebrow kits-so make a run to your nearest store!
These blushes come in the cutest packaging! It is a little bulky and will definitely take up a lot of room, but it's such a nice product to use! I love the clear glass jar and matte black lid on top-so classy! It also has a stopper to keep the blush nice and fresh!
So the two shades I have are Flirt and Heartbreaker-aptly named-and are actually very similar. Flirt is more pink and Heartbreaker is more coral.
These have the consistency of soft playdough which is so freaking cool! I would compare it to the texture Maybelline Dream Bouncy Blushes. So far, I've tried to apply these with my finger and with a foundation brush (I definitely need to pick up a stippling brush!) and while the foundation brush applies more color, my finger definitely blended it in better.
These are the most pigmented blushes, the swatches above are done pretty heavy. Once it's blended out, a lot of the color disappears. So because of that, I've noticed that the blush fades in about 2-3 hours. So this formula definitely either needs to be reapplied or used as a base for a powder blush.
Good, light formula, nice color selection, good amount of product, nice packaging
Formulated with parabens, packaging may be bulky for some, not pigmented, prone to fading
The Bottom Line
I personally like this because I don't like super pigmented blush on my cheeks because I have a fair complexion, but, most people shop for a pigmented blush that doesn't take longer than average too apply!
I personally like it & would recommend it, I only wish it had a bit more pigmentation!
What do you think? Have you tried these blushes?
