Review: Elf Blush Palette (Light)

13:23

Hey Beauties!

Blush is one of those things that I always buy in singles. When I saw that Elf has a whole palette of 4 blushes for a very good price, I couldn't pass on that chance. To my surprise the pigmentation and shades amazed me in a positive way.


Elf Blush palette comes in a black matte plastic packaging. It opens and closes nicely and it has a huge mirror inside.

It costs 7.95£ here (they are currently out of stock I think) and you get 4 grams of product.


As you can see on the bottom you have a chance to pop each shade of blush out. It's practical if you want to make your own palette and maybe buy some more shades from Elf to mix and match. 


If you follow me on Instagram you know that I already had an accident with this popping out. Basically the system is not flawless. The blushes are stuck in pretty hard and you have to hold the edges when you try to pop it out, otherwise the blush will be flying across your room. Like I did with one. Agrh! I was so angry. I just had to pop it out, before I even took photos of it! Go figure! So yeah, I don't know how much this popping out system can actually be useful. 


I think they have three different shades of blush palettes. I got the Light version, which of course has shades suited for light skin tones. I numbered the blushes so you'll know about which I'm talking about. 



I swatched the blushes in this order: shade 1, shade 2, shade 3 and shade 4. 
1 is matte cool toned light pink, which for some reason looks warm on my skin tone. 
2 is matte light brown peach
3 is matte warm red toned pink
4 is red toned orange, which has small gold shimmer in it, but it's almost unnoticeable on the skin. It's actually a bit odd, because the shimmer is so sparse in the blush that you get very little shimmer particles in one swipe. It looks like the shimmer has fallen in by mistake. 


I have to apologize that the lighting on photos is different. They were taken at different times, but I hope you'll still see how the blush looks like on me.

Shade 1

Shade 1 has a very noticeable cool blue tone to it, but for some reason it turns into a warm pink on my yellow skin tone, which of course I really like. 



Shade 2

Shade 2 looks too brown in the palette, but actually looks like a nice very light peachy brown shade on the skin. It's one of my favorites.



Shade 3

Shade 3 is almost berrry dark pink shade, which looks pretty peachy red on my skin for some reason.



Shade 4

Shade 4 is most my kind of shade, it's  redish orange that looks most natural with my skin tone and hair color.



As far as the texture goes, it's nice powder. Not to dry, it seems like it has that moist feeling to it. All the shades are extremely pigmented. I was very positively surprised. When I take the brush and dip it in, I have to use a very light hand, otherwise I'll end up with a lot of color on my cheeks. I also love the fact that you get 4 different shades to pair with all different looks. It's really amazing. 

One thing, this pop out packaging is not my favorite, since you have to be careful not to pop them out every time you hold the back of the packaging. I guess it's nice that it doesn't pop out immediately when you touch it, but that also means it's harder to get it out without breaking it. 

I would say definitely get it, if you want variety of good very pigmented shades. I'm thinking of getting some more myself. Elf has been warming up to my heart, lately. I've liked most of their products so far.

  4. A to je ta famozna E.l.f. paletka :D Četrti odtenek ti res najbolj paše, pa mejkap na vseh štirih verzijah je popoln :) A veš, da ukinjajo E.l.f. UK stran? Trenutno imajo razprodajo zalog, potem pa ne bodo več zastopniki za to znamko.

    1. Hvala:)) Gee Mateja, thanks for breaking the news to me:P Damn it! Pa zakaj se vedno ukine tisto kar je meni všeč? Pa se mi je zdelo čudno zakaj imajo take razprodaje, ampak itak že pol izdelkov, ki jih želim več ni. Ja, naj k nam v trgovine spravijo ta Elf, pa bo:). Saj mi še ostane iHerb, ki pa je seveda zdaj zvišal poštnino - I can't win! :/

    2. Mogoče pa bo katera od naših spletnih trgovin začela e.l.f. prodajat, samo potem sumim da bodo neke blesave cene like always. Kokr sm razumela se zapira britanska pa italijanska stran, nemška in ostale pa ostajajo, tako da mogoče bodo pa oni začeli k nam pošiljat :) iHerb je zvišal poštnino? Bastards -_-.

    3. Saj, cene pa ne bodo več ameriške:). Mogoče pa res ja. Baje je iHerb naredil zdaj na težo nakupa cene poštnine. Ker mislim, da prej ni bilo nič vezano na težo ali količino. Predvidevam da bo zdaj dražje kupit kakšne 150 ml balzame in podobno:/
