e.l.f. Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

I bought my first “contour” thing for the loved to try new makeup. Yes, this was my first and affordable contouring product I have. I was amazed on the models of magazine, famous celebrities and even faces on my way. (I was like, how they do that? I gave a try to this contour blush and bronze powder from beautymnl together with elf stipple brush.

I’ve been looking up on a contemptible one to begin with this “contour thing” if how to use it, so I tried one.

With the help of the instructions at the back, I use the blush brush to swipe on the bronze to my hollow cheeks for a definition around my face line. I applied also the blush highlights on my cheeks. I did not notice the defined pigmentation, but I noticed the sun kissed effect on my cheekbone.Please note that it is only noticeable when lights hit at a certain angle.

Pros: very affordable for a beginner, blend very easily with a good pigmentation that gives your face a healthy natural glowing skin, the packaging is 5/5 and can bring anytime, anywhere, the Sta. Lucia shade is perfect for asian color, the packaging and the mirror inside is probably worth the price

Cons: the pigment is light on my medium complexion ( I dab a rose blush from Maybelline for more flush of clor) re-apply after 5- hours, the texture isn’t buttery soft, it feel slightly dry and powdery but it’s nothing too terrible.

Recommendation: Use setting spray or face primer for long lasting, can be a dupe for Nars Laguna and Orgasm (fraction of the cost!)

It was not a dissapoint on me cos I just try ths thing for fuss. You had to work on it to make it work:) Have you tried this one? Share with me your thoughts!

  1. It looks beautiful! I was hesitating to buy it since I can get pretty tan during the summertime and was scared for it not showing too much on my skin. Maybe I’ll have to use it during Winter. Love your review 🙂
