Hello everyone! Hope you're having a wonderful day. Just wanted to drop you a line about these two awesome products from ELF. I recently purchased a few different things off of the ELF website- but these are a couple that really stood out to me. First off- the packaging is really not typical of most ELF products- but keep in mind, these come from their somewhat new "Studio" line. They resemble Nars compacts and are rather large with a really nice mirror that's terrific to use when you're traveling.
The compact on the left is the Warm Bronzer. On the website, you'll find this also comes in Cool and Golden Bronzer shades. This one that I have appears to be the most like a "typical" bronzer shade. The four separate tones mix together flawlessly with a swirl of your brush. It's a nice change from some of my darker bronzers, and I think this would be awesome for those who have fair skin and have struggled finding a bronzer that doesn't make them look "muddy". I felt like after I used this I looked fresh and glowing, but still natural! This is not an overly shimmery product and you absolutely don't need to worry about looking orange. Woohoo!
The compact on the right is the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. This has often been compared to a similar product from Nars, but since I don't have that product- I won't pretend to make comparisons here. (other than packaging, which as I mentioned before, is quite similar). I had seen numerous videos/pictures of this product and really wasn't too impressed at first. I didn't think the colors appeared to be too vibrant, and just really didn't think it looked like a must-have product. Well, now that I have it, I guess it's a must-KEEP product! This thing rocks! This bronzer is considerably deeper than the mosaic style Warm Bronzer mentioned above. It is wonderful for contouring cheeks, but beware- since it is darker you don't want to go overboard on this on the rest of your face or you'll look dirty. Trust me, I know haha ;D A great cheek contour nonetheless- and I like that it's not overly shimmery.
Now the peachy toned blush DOES have some shimmer- quite a bit more than the bronzer... but it still has COLOR! Woohoo! My concern was that I'd have a peach blush on my hands that wouldn't show up and would be basically useless. Even on my medium-toned skin- this gorgeous blush shows up, and the shimmer is not enough to keep me from wearing it. A truly wearable blush and bronzer in one- you could really cut costs by getting this and you'd be truly satisfied!
And once again- a look at the super cute and sleek packaging! Look for more reviews on other ELF products I've purchased coming up soon. ALSO-- I've launched a new hair series! It's called Weather Styles... basically a hairdo for any kind of weather condition! I've just posted a video on rainy day hair, so check it out!
Have a great day everyone!
