E.L.F.: Blush Palette – Light

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!

Swatches run bottom to top = top to bottom and left to right on the palette.

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 🙂

If you would like to read my review of the E.L.F. contour palette, also from this range, you can find it here.

Have a great day!
