I've something to share here. Well. It's about my job. I already resigned from my current job. IDK. But I feel that I couldn't find any 'clickness' OMG, pardon my words. I truly can't find perfect words to describe it well *sigh*
So, to forget about my emptiness after resigned from my job, I decide to review one of my on-the-go blush on. Tehee~ Sorry if you get bored about my lipstick-blush review since those two are my favorite make up babies.
Okay, E.L.F Studio Blush describes as "a soft sheer texture that blends into the skin for a silky finish. Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth." It retailed $3.60-$4 if I am not mistaken, but I bought it around 65.000 rupiahs or $6 on local online store. Geez!
Actually I have four shades on my stack but two of them I lend to my friends. So I only keep the two of them. Blushing Rose and Berry Merry. I'll do the review of Berry Merry on separated post.
Okay! Let's jump to the review!
It comes with square packaging made from sturdy plastic. And it's black. Look classy and, uumh, professional? Haha. The packaging have clear part to see the blush. Oh it also have a transparent plastic covered the product and a mirror when opened. Reminded me of NARS packaging. Although it looks heavy, it's surprisingly lightweight, slim, and not bulky at all!
COLOR & PIGMENTATION:
ELF Studio Blush Blushing Rose is a deep berry (it's plummy shade but looks like brick color) with golden shimmers. The shimmers leave a sheen and glowy effect upon application. People with large pores better put this blush in the back of their cheeks, because put it on apple cheeks will makes pores looks bigger. The pigmentation is great on me, but it's still another natural looking blush, thou. This shade would look beautiful on medium to deeper complexions. People with fairer skin tones must be really careful since it's a deeper shade.
TEXTURE & LONGEVITY:
Some people said that blush from this range have chalky texture. But it turns out good on me. IDK, I don't have any experience like that. It smooths and spread easily on my skin. No fall out issue! Maybe it just because how we sweep it from the pan, or the brush that we used.
This blush stay on my cheeks around 4-5 then it completely disappear! I was disappointed with it, but because my skin is oily, I think it's a normal case. Or not?
So this is the swatch on my cheeks! Great flush, right?! Hahaaaaaaa! I love the result. It gives me natural reddish-flush without making me look like a clown. Majoor loveee!! Teheee~
I hope you can see the color. I don't know why the color look like pinky red in the second picture. And forgive me about the shameless blurry selfie *sigh*
What I Like:
- Great Pigmentation
- Give me natural flush
-The shimmer turn into glowy effect on my cheeks
- No fall out (on my case) - I suggest you to use duo fiber brush when apply this blush to avoid any fall out
- Sturdy Packaging
- No need light handed
- Great on medium skin tone like mine
What I hate:
- Completely disappear after 4-5 hours (what a joke)
- It may turn too pigmented for people with fairer skin tone
