From E.L.F.’s website:
Exquisite, delicate, pigment that makes cheeks radiant combined with a healthy-looking glow. Infused with texturizing agents, skin feels smooth and pores are minimized.
What I liked:
– Blends easily
– Natural finish
– Slight shimmer
– The price
What I didn’t like:
– Not long-lasting
– The size, it’s too small, can’t get brush into it
– The packaging
Everyone is talking about ELF right now, so I thought I’d buy a few products and see what the fuss is about. After using then, I find they are hit and miss. Natural Radiance Blusher, while not too bad, isn’t too great either. Available in 6 shades, I got Innocence, which is a very light pink colour.
The blush is very small, almost the size of a tester, so I couldn’t get my blush brush into it. Yep, it’s that small. I had to apply it with my contour brush, which worked very well. The blush is very easy to blend. However, Innocence is such a light colour that it barely looks like I’m wearing anything at all. I’ve had to apply quite a lot of product before I could see any difference on my cheeks. The blush gives a nice natural looking glow and the subtle shimmer is great.
The staying power isn’t, though. The blush starts fading after a few hours and needs to be reapplied throughout the day.
The packaging is quite cheap and very clunky. You need to be very careful with it as it breaks easily.
Overall, ELF Natural Radiance Blusher in Innocence is not the best blush I’ve ever used, but for the money, it does the job fine. It is easy to blend and gives a natural finish with a subtle shimmer. However, it is not long-lasting and the packaging is very small and cheap.
