Product Review: elf Contouring Blush & Bronzer in St. Lucia

Hello everyone! I've heard that elf has great blushes and bronzers, and for only $3, why not try it out? ;D (And I heard that this particular shade is a dupe for the Nars Orgasm and Laguna duo?)

I was really surprised by the packaging by the packaging of this duo because for $3, it does not feel cheap. It actually feels more luxurious than some of my higher end blushes and bronzers. Two thumbs up for that, elf!

The blush color is a very pretty peachy pink and the bronzer is more on the brown side with a tiny bit of shimmer in the pan but I found that it doesn't really transfer onto my cheeks. So if you like matte bronzers like me, then you don't need to worry about it.

The pigmentation of this duo is crazy, I love it. one swipe and it's all you need. The texture is very smooth and not chalky. It doesn't last very long, but blush never really lasts long on me anyway so I'm not bothered by it.

-Smooth texture

-Doesn't last very long

Overall- If I wasn't so attached to my Benefit Hoola Bronzer this would be my HG bronzer. Aside from that, I won't be purchasing any bronzers, but I will bet more blushes for sure. And a lot of them because, again, $3! Can't beat that.

What do you guys think of elf products? Which products have you liked and which ones you haven't?
See you next time! XD

  2. Hi Sonya!!! I love your review! Would loooove to see a pic of the bronzer on your full face! Hehehee I don't own any ELF products (not accesible in Canada! Ugh) but from what I hear they tend to not stay that long on your face.... maybe try the NYC Sun bronzer? I've been using that one for years!

  7. I'd love to try ELF products but their postage fees are ridiculous considering how affordable their products seem!

    This blush does look amazing though!
