I purchased this blush palette from E.L.F. after hearing lots of good things about it on Youtube, and it does not disappoint. I have to admit that I am not a huge fan of the E.L.F individual studio blushes (detailed review to come), so I wasn’t sure what to expect here, but the quality of these blushes is so much better in my opinion.
I really like the packaging of this palette. It has a good quality mirror and the pans are removable. Although you can’t buy individual pans, you can customise a palette by mixing and matching across the range which also includes a contour palette and illuminating palette.
The powders themselves are really lovely. They are smooth, pigmented and quite finely milled, particularly when compared to the E.L.F. studio blush singles which I think are quite grainy and powdery. These blushes are also really nicely pigmented!
In terms of shade selection we have a cool baby pink, a peachy-nude, a rose and a brighter coral. The coral shade (bottom, right pan) does contain some shimmer particles but as you can see from the swatch (top swatch) I don’t find that these transfer when applied to the skin. The other shades are matte. These also blend nicely and wear quite well for me lasting throughout my 8 hour work day without too much fading.
I really enjoy these blushes.
I paid AU$8 for this palette and I think it is an EXCELLENT purchase for that price. I have now put the ‘dark’ version of this blush palette on my wish list 🙂

Have a great day!
