Hello everyone! I hope you’re all having a great start to your weekend. It’s raining like crazy here in the Midwest so I thought it was the perfect time to sit down and write about this amazing blush palette from Elf Cosmetics that has completely taken me by surprise! One of my new Instagram followers photographed this beautiful quad on her page and had nothing but great things to say about it. I have been really needing to pick up some more blushes for spring because to be honest, blush is something I just started wearing within the last few years. I always thought that with my darker skin tone blush would be stupid or it wouldn’t show up, etc. Little did I know I was very wrong and blush can look beautiful on any skin tone!
This palette can be purchased online or can be found at a majority of drugstores – I purchased mine from Target for only $6! Only $6 for four shades is such a steal! The packaging is a sleek and matte black hard case that is perfect for travel and it goes nicely with all of my other products. It does look high-end because it has a large high quality mirror that fills up the entire lid. If you’re traveling and it happens to break, it’s very cheap to replace! The palette comes in two color choices: light & dark. I chose to pick mine up dark because I love the look of deep rose/mauve shades on my tan skin.
•Top Left – deep burgundy matte
•Top Right – raspberry shimmer
•Bottom Right – coral pink matte
•Bottom Left – baby pink plum matte
This is the reason why I’m in love with this little palette. Just LOOK at that pigmentation! It blends effortlessly into the skin and has buildable coverage. I barely tap my blush brush into the palette and that little motion is literally all that I need for each cheek. This is probably my favorite purchase so far in 2015, because it’s affordable, highly pigmented, buttery, great packaging, easily accessible, hasn’t broke me out, etc! I don’t think I can say enough great things about it other than to thank Elf Cosmetics for making such a wonderful drugstore product!
Have you tried either of these Elf blush palettes or any other blush from them – if so, what are your thoughts? Are there any other Elf products that you love?
Thank you reading!
