So a few weeks ago i posted about the E.L.F goodies i had bought, but i had literally just got them and hadn't used any of them (It was more of a look what I've bought than a review). I like to give products a proper chance before reviewing, as you cant always tell after just a few goes whether you actually love it or not.
I can confirm i do love this blush.
This blush is shade 'peachy keen'
Excuse the state of the packaging... as you can see its been well used!!! (a good sign, i hope)
When i first opened the product i was dissapointed it didn't seem peachy at all.. it seemed more brown (like a bronzer, and when your as pale as me that is not what you want). This being said i gave it a chance and continued using it for a few days... Then to my amazement something magical happened!!!
Once i had broke through the first layer of the blush (the skin, if you will) i discovered a peachy, shimmery loveliness. Which was exactly what i have been hoping for when i purchased it.
It applies really quite light, but is easily builable which i like. The swatches below show it after just one of two layers, it is easier to make it so much darker.
I have had this blush a good two - three weeks now i think and i have found myself reaching for it almost every day. I am very surprised by this as i am normally a very pink blush sorta gal, and this is literally my only non pink blush. But my others haven't really had a look in since this one arrived, i really like that it has a slight shimmer as it gives almost a sorta highlighter effect.
I must say im a fan of the packaging also, i feel it has a sorta NARS homage to it and even includes a mirror. It doesnt come with a brush, but i never use the ones included anyway as they are often a bit crappy. I've been applying this blush with my ELF blush brush also £3.50 & also fab!!!
At £3.50 i find it hard to pick any fault at all with this product (once you get through the initial non peachy stage). Its available HERE & i must say i found the customer service from ELF top notch!!! Got a little text telling me it was on its way and arrived it no time at all!
