A couple of months ago, I got this Elf Cream Blush at a bbloggers meeting. I have to be honest and say that after experiencing a really nasty smelling lip balm from them, I really stayed away from Elf products.
I'm not saying all are disappointing, because I have far from tested enough and one of my favorite bronzers is an Elf one.
I really liked the little pot it came in and to my surprise, there is a whole lotta product in it. It has a nice glass bottom and a matching black cap.
With the red inside, they make for a pretty great color combination.
So that's one point for packaging.
As you can see from this picture it is pretty dry. It still is creamy but when applied to your skin it does feel a bit powdery. Not in a bad way, it just is a very big difference to the Essence Souffle Blush.
You can also see how against all rules of the pretty, I stuck my finger in it and left a dent.
I'll give it Half a Point for creaminess.
And this is what it looks like on my skin. It looks natural,yes. And the more you blend it the more natural looking it becomes. You wouldn't expect it to look so subtle if you see it in the package. You'd expect some crazy red to land on you, but it really is not the case.
It just doesn't last too much on your face. And I don't like the matte look to it. I generally don't like things taking away from the natural glow of my skin so I always prefer products that have a bit of shine.
If you like it matte then you will like this.
I'll give it Half a Point for lasting power and look.
Which brings us to a total of 2 out of 3 points. It's not going to become my favorite blush, but I might use it if it won't have anything else at hand.
Have you ever tried it? What do you think?
