Elf Natural Radiance Blusher (Shy)

I was once a blusher freak. Seeing $1/$3 blushers on Elf, I quickly grabbed a few without thinking and ended up with a tiny mountain. I'm sure I'm not alone.. lols Anyway, I sold a lot of my impulsive purchases and am reviewing what's left.

I kept this cos I didn't have any soft pink blushers.

This is a seriously cheap casing. Not very secure and can be hard to open (it slides open). I wouldn't trust it to keep powder in. Which can be a problem cos this blusher is very fragile! As you can see, there are some cracks in it and every time I open & close it, it gets worse =/

If you're wondering why you can't find it, it's because it has been upgraded and is now called Blush with Brush.

I had just realized that there are so many new products now! @_@

*disappears for an hour*

I'm back with swatches~ As you can see, it's really light. Actually kinda light for my skin tone but I like the brightening effect. It just makes me glow. Good for when I wanna pretend to be a cutesy girl from Japan =x

Didn't touch up my skin here.. This is how my skin looks like with a pile of makeup lol Not that I'm insecure about my skin, but I think it's nicer to see photos of girls with nicer complexions xD

Anyway, see how it glows? I like!

The new packaging comes with a mirror & brush. I have a bigger mirror on my dressing table so I was like meh.. But that day, I applied makeup at my Bf's place and realized... How important mirrors in products are!!

Product says : This silky smooth powder blush melts into the skin creating a beautiful brightened glow. Formulated to create lasting color that accentuates your features and flatters your skin tone. A built-in mirror and brush are included for convenient flawless application. *New description

My conclusion : Apart from the packaging, this blusher is good. I really like how it brightens my face but I wouldn't recommend it for darker skinned people. Sometimes I pair this with another blusher when I want more colour.

    I wished they didnt add the brush even though its only and additional 1USD but still if i were to buy 10 of these blushes i'd have 10 brushes that i dont need :/ 

    thn again its good to bring around for touch ups but ppl hardly touch up blushers like lips sticks 

  2. this is my favourite blush from ELF :)
    Nice review..

  3. Well, I would bring it out for 'emergency makeup' situations if my friends suddenly decide to eat in a posh place xP Or for work! But then again, I would prefer to bring my own brush =/

  4. try elf studio ones, im in luv wif berry merry ^^

  5. Ive tried a few. Berry Merry was too dark and purplish for me. Another one, the pinkish one with shimmer turned out too purplish too. I guess I just can't take purples

  6. I really like elf, but never tried their blushers before. I think the cheap packaging is expected since it's so cheap! xD but the color looks really nice! Thanks for sharing. ^_^
