E.L.F. Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in St Lucia

I had heard that the E.L.F. Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder was a dupe for the NARS Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer duo, so I made sure to add it to my basket when buying a bunch of products off a couple of months back. At first swirl, I could already see how pigmented these powders were, and knew I had hit the blush and bronzer jackpot!

The blush is a beautiful dusty rose, while the bronzer is a deep milk chocolate brown. Both the blush and bronzer have shimmer to them (which oddly enough does not pick up on camera), and at first I thought they would make my face look blindingly glittery, but oh how i was wrong! Once applied, the shimmer is barely noticeable on my skin, thank goodness. Since they are both so pigmented, I have to make sure to apply them with a light hand, especially the bronzer. Once blended in, I am left with glowy, chiseled cheeks!

I also really like the packaging of this E.L.F duo. It is compact and the casing is sturdy, but best of all it comes with a large mirror, which is so great considering how cheap this stuff sells for. The packaging is also very similar to that of NARS compacts.

Blush and Bronzer, not blended
The E.L.F. Studio Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder, at only $4, is truly a steal for the quality you get. If you are looking for a good duo for the cheeks, I would highly suggest you try it! :)
