ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer Review

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer St Lucia

Today I want to share with you a product that I have been loving for awhile now. It is the ELF contouring blush and bronzer kit in St Lucia. I bought this awhile ago as I thought it would be handy to have a blush and a bronzer together as it would come in handy for travelling. Many people also compare it to the Nars Orgasm and Laguna duo. 

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer St Lucia
The blush shade is not one I'd normally go for as I usually wear pink blushes but recently I have been trying to branch out of my comfort zone and try something new so without further ado I'll start with the review. 

This is what ELF says about it 'Create a healthy and natural glow all year long with the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of colour, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition.' 

The packaging is very akin to Nars packaging in that it is black and sleek but unlike Nars this is made of matte black plastic. I love the huge mirror that comes with this as it makes it perfect for travelling as you don't need to bother packing a mirror. 

ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzer St Lucia
The blush is a gorgeous peachy pink which has a gold shimmer running through it. The bronzer is matte and is quite a dark shade of brown which at first caused problems for me as I am quite pale but once I got the hang of using it I was fine. I really like this product, I do tend to use the blush more often than the bronzer because I find it easier to wear. The products are quite powdery compared to other drugstore blushes but for the price you can't really complain. All in all this is a good product and I think it is worth trying I'm surprised by how often I reach for the blush considering I usually only wear pink blushes. One word of warning is that if you already own the ELF single blush in Twinkle Pink then don't get this and the blush shades are almost identical. Also if you prefer cream products then they do a cream version of this as well.
