Variant being reviewed: Pink Passion
elf is a popular international make up brand but I have not tried much of it because it isnt easily available in india and has to shipped from international websites like amazon and beauty joint. I purchased this blush along with a gel liner from elf and some nyx and jordana products from amazon.com.
ELF Studio Blush Pink Passion comes in a plastic black packaging with a small clear plastic strip for colour showcase without opening the blush. It has small mirror inside but there isnt any applicator (which is good!) . The blush shuts tight making it travel friendly. All in all this sleek budget blush gives a classy and elegant feel on first look
The Shade Pink Passion is a very bright pink with a matte finish . The colour looks very candyish and OOT in the pan and I thought this was a wrong buy and it wouldn’t suit my indian skin tone but I was pleasantly surprised at it looked very natural on my cheeks. So you can say this shade is suitable for all skin tones and don’t go by the colour in the pan.
Texture: The texture of blush is smooth and a bit powdery but it is very buildable and blends easily. it is decently pigmented and one swipe would be enough for a natural flushed look. I love that this blush has a matte finish with not a dot of shimmer .
Staying Power: The staying power of this blush is another plus as it stays almost all day . It stays put for 4-6 hours even without a primer which is a great thing considering its price. Also since it is so compactly packaged it is easy to carry in your handbag for touch ups.
- Classy, compact and travel friendly packaging

- No applicator but that doesn’t matter to me.
Where to buy: From Amazon.com or official website of ELF (Eyes Lips Face) . Keep an eye for 50% –60% sales which ELF keeps having to compensate for shipping.
