ELF cosmetics are a fairly recent disovery of mine after seeing a social networking status regarding their website www.eyeslipsface.co.uk. Makeup and all things beauty are a big interest of mine so new products and ranges just have to be checked out and this one was no different. The whole website of ELF is dedicated to affordable, quality cosmetics so it is well worth a look. They do quite unique items like colour correction concealer and 'staying' mist which helps to set your makeup so it is well worth a look.
The blusher comes in a compact black patent casing which lift up on a hinge. On the iside lid is a mirror with magnifying qualities which is very handy if you are applying your blusher whilst out and about or on the move. The case is the perfect size to fit into your bag - even the smallest of bags! The casing can be quite hard to open but long nails usually does the trick!
The blusher doesn't come with it's own brush but I tend not to use the small fanned blushed brushes that typically come with this type of product because they are usually too stiff and collect too much of the product onto the brush resulting in an uneven result.
This particular product is available in 'giddy gold' and 'twinkle pink'. I chose the 'giddy gold' which is a bronzed colour as I prefer this colour to pink as it looks more natural on my skin tone. The product itself does have a slight shimmer to it which is noticable but is not unnatural or overwhelming.
The blusher applies really well and even for a cheap product which I was pleasantly surprised at. The one disadvantage to the product is that it doesn't last very long. I'd say maximum longevity is 3-4 hours before it needs topping up but for £3.75 and quite a big product this product still gets 4 stars from me!
