elf Cosmetics Studio Blush Review

elf studio blush review

The only reason why I got this elf Studio blush is because it’s cheap and I thought it would be a great dupe for the much raved Nars Orgasm. Look at it, doesn’t it look exactly like the Nars Orgasm minus the elf logo on the blush? I didn’t really expect much from the elf Cosmetics Studio Blush though because it’s just too affordable. Hehe!

elf Cosmetics Studio Blush Review:

Anyways, it’s housed in a plastic packaging which is flimsy which is to be expected considering its price. It’s kind of a let down though because when I tried it, it doesn’t give off much color at all. It’s powdery too and the tiny specks of shimmer is all I ever get every time I try to build the product up. So yup, it’s not buildable, at all. This would make a great highlighter though!

And also, since I love elf products especially their eyebrow kit, I want to give this blush another try so I will get something with a darker shade and see if the darker shades will give a better color payoff. I’ll update you about that!

Final Thoughts:

I am not pleased with this shade Peachy Keen but I’m definitely giving this elf Studio Blush another. I’ll be trying out the darker shades, maybe I’ll try the Blushing Rose or the Berry Merry next time. Right now, I really believe that I just picked a shade that’s way too light. 😉

Anyways, have you tried other elf Cosmetics Studio Blush too? If so, can you let me know if the other shades are any better and worth purchasing? 😉

    I use an Elf blush/contour everyday! I forget what it's called but it's a duo with a similar blush to this one. It's not bad for the price!

    I too love their eyebrow kit! I've tried different brands in the past but I always go back to ELF because it does the job better, and the price point alone already makes it a steal! 🙂

    I also agree with you on their blush being shimmery & all. I also have their contouring and blush powder duo, and while I love the contouring powder because it's matte & does not enhance my pores like mad, I can never feel the same way about the blush. It's got so much shimmer going on and because I have oily skin, it's something that I don't appreciate at all. I still get a use out of it as an eye shadow though so as not to put the product to waste, but as a blush, I think I'll stick to my tried and tested for now! I still love ELF nonetheless! xx

    Btw, I'm a new follower of your wonderful blog. I hope you can support a newbie blogger here Ms. Angelie! It would mean the whole world to me! Hihi xx

    Followed you back Jemimah! I definitely agree with you, their blush seems like it's either made to be a highlighter or an eyeshadow but not a blush. And I'm actually trying out the blush and contour duo you are talking about and I'm still not pleased with the blush. I will publish my review on that soon! 🙂

    I actually own that duo Keri and I'll publish the review on that soon. Probably next week if not tomorrow. 🙂

    I haven't tried Elf's blush yet but good to know it wasn't a good alternative to Nars. It still looks like a pretty color and I'm sure it still looks great!

    Such a shame you're not a massive fan as it looks like it could be such a lovely colour! You'll have to update us if you do invest in a darker shade 🙂 x Rebecca – itscohen.co.uk

    It is a lovely color while still in the pan but there's hardly any color payoff when applied on the cheeks 🙁

    I find it so difficult to find the perfect shade of blushes! I use one from dior in brown/gold and pink/silver… luckily I have enough of them cause it was discontinued :S

    I haven't tried this brand yet but you got me curious on the eyebrow kit. My makeup skill is limited to applying foundation and lipstick. I just started learning how to do my eyebrows.

    My sister was planning to buy this to test it out too. Although, she's not much of an elf fan. Good thing I saw this. Will be waiting for your review on the darker shades first though. It'll save my sister some cash hahahaha
