Contouring using ELF Blush and Bronzing Powder

Hi everyone! (a big cyber wave to all of you guys). I want to thank you all for continously reading my blog though I have not been posting for a few months now. I know, I know I owe a lot to you, I am very much excited to post new reviews and what not in my blog. So let me start of with a contour and blush powder duo.

I have been going back and forth to the ELF beauty counter asking myself if I should get it or not. Are you someone like me who's very pickle minded? I wanted it but then I was having a second thought so I didn't get it but after 2 days I see myself back at the counter checking and making swatches. Until the day finally come, I tried it on my face and guess what, not even a split second it's there inside my shopping bag.

This is being compared to the NARS blush and bronzer duo but I don't have the one from NARS so I can't compare them at this point.

I got the color in  St. Lucia, the name by the way is written on the back of the compact. It comes in a black packaging with the picture of what's inside on top and at the back are the Directions and Ingredients.

 
 



 
Inside it is a matte black compact, you open it and you'll see a big mirror which is very helpful if you will be applying make-up while travelling.

Pros:

* Price (only php249.75 at SM Department store)
* neat and professional packaging
* nothing beats the amount of product for it's price (8grams)
*very good pigmentation
*easy to blend
*the color that I got looks beautiful on any skintone
*mirror is useful
*it's not tested on animals


Cons:

- other people may be concern about the glitters which to me is not a big deal

Contouring with this one will make your face looks glowing because it has a little bit of shimmer, just a little that it goes off when blended very well. It has no hint of orange, just brown like how a contouring powder should be. Contour the edges of your face very lightly during the day or add more for a very defined look

The blush looks great if you want a natural look, dust it very lightly for a no make-up make-up look. Just a little will go a long way with this duo. It has gained a spot in my heart and in my make-up kit.


Thank you for reading ladies and I see you in my next post!
