I am such a creature of habit. Usually when I find a product that I really like, I have a hard time branching out and trying new things. However one makeup product that I’ve finally started to broaden my horizons with is blush! Two blushes that I’ve been reaching for regularly are both from the e.l.f. Studio line.
The e.l.f. Studio Blush in Berry Merry is a great blush for this season (with such a festive name, no?). I would classify this shade as more of a mauve, and it has a good amount of shimmer. This blush gives my cheeks a beautiful glow. Both buildable and blendable, it is pretty versatile. The staying power is pretty impressive as well, at most 6 hours of wear time. I’m also a huge fan of the packaging of this product. Sleek, sturdy, and with a strong clasp, this compact will hold up very well if you just throw it in your purse and go… plus it comes with a small mirror!
The e.l.f. Studio HD Blush may possibly be one of my favorite products from the brand thus far. This cream blush is INSANELY pigmented. I mean really, you need a quarter of a pea size for one cheek. I have the color Headliner, which is one of the subtler shades the product comes in, but it still packs a punch. Luckily it blends out so easily and leaves a silky, matte finish on the skin. It’s super lightweight and has lasted over 10 hours for me. This light pink is great for keeping the face more neutral when you’re rocking a bold lip this season.
At first, I was disappointed in the size of the HD Blush, but considering what little amount you need for even your most dramatic looks, it’s going to last a good long while. The packaging on this is 50/50 for me. I really like that it has a pump for hygiene reasons, but I found it to be finicky. For my first few uses, it had me pumping over and over again, and then product would spurt out really fast (and usually too much, at that). Now it seems like everything is in working order, but I hate that I wasted product when the pump wasn’t working.
Overall, the blushes from e.l.f.’s Studio line are big hits in my book. The best part: these are both $3 each! You really can’t beat that for the quality of these blushes.
Have you tried any of e.l.f.’s blushes?
