This wasn't originally going to feature on here..which brings me to something that someone said to me the other day. I got an email from someone (some seems to be quite a popular word in this paragraph) who asked me if I blogged about everything I owned. In short, I don't..I don't think anybody does because that would bore the pants off of me. I have a lot of makeup that never makes it onto here.
This beauty however, was deemed worthy enough.
I've always wanted to order items from ELF but my one "justification" product was never in stock. It still isn't.
This blusher is really nice..although a bit fiddly. I figured out a way to use it which results in minimal mess. I turn it upside down, give it a tap and then turn it the right way up. Open the lid and there is enough on there for me to squizz my brush around a bit. My Revlon blush brush is a perfect fit.
The photo above was taken on an overcast day but the colour is true to life. It is highly pigmented which is nice for such a budget buy and it works well against my skin colour. I find it perks my skin up on days when I should have known better and exfoliated the night before. I categorise blushes into two categories, the first being blushers that are obvious..colours that let people KNOW you're wearing a blush..then you get these, the not-so-obvious natural cheek enhancers. On a day to day basis, you can't tell I have it on but people notice when I'm not wearing it.
I can't recommend this blusher enough, I really want to try Coral and Rose but they're out of stock so I'll have to wait until they come back into stock. The ease of application, durability during the day (I touch my face a lot and it stays put) and pigmentation alone make it more than worthy of the £3.50 you spend on it.
