Hey everyone, today’s post is to review ELF studio blush in Pink Passion.
ELF cosmetics describes their studio blush line as “The soft sheer texture blends into the skin for a silky finish. Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth. Highlight your complexion with a subtle healthy glow!”
Talc, Mica, Nylon-12, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Paraffinium Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Polybutene, Sodium Dehydroacetate, Iron Oxides (CI 77491 , CI 77492 , CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Mica (CI 77019), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Yellow No.5 Lake (CI 19140), Red No.40 Lake (CI 16035), Ultramarine Violet (CI 77077), Blue No.1 Lake (CI 42090).
Pink passion blush (AU$8.00) is a cool toned bright pink and it is completely matte. Against my light yellow undertone skin, it looked surprisingly flattering. It instantly brightened up my dull complexion and made me look fresh and flushed. I can see this blush works on fair/light to medium skin tones. The blush is super powdery (not chalky) and even after tapping off those excessive powder from my brush, I could still see more powder dropping off when I applied it onto my cheeks. However, this does not look powdery on the skin as the colour did melt into my skin rather than staying on the surface. It slightly emphasize pore. It blends well on the skin and the coverage is buildable.
The blush lasted on my normal skin(slightly oily nose area) for six hours. As I went for a nap after the sixth hour, I woke up without seeing any blush on my skin at about the ninth hour. When I took off makeup, I could see a hint of pink blush residue on the cotton pad. I feel that this blush works better on fair/light to medium skin tone.
Borrowing Temptalia‘s dupe rating system: sleek makeup Pixie pink is less powdery, 100% colour match. The balm instain blush Lace is much more pigmented, pinker, warmer.
Have you tried this blush and what are your thoughts?
Thanks for reading.
