e.l.f. Cosmetics Contouring Blush & Bronzer in St. Lucia
e.l.f. Cosmetics aren’t widely available here in Canada that I’m aware of, so when I saw this little Contouring Blush & Bronzer in St. Lucia for less than $5 at Winners, I had to pick it up. I’ve seen some people talk about these compacts on YouTube and blogs a lot in the past.
I’ll be honest, I was a pretty disappointed by this product. I was actually really excited to give it a try. I wouldn’t say it was ever hyped, but I do feel as though I never heard a bad thing about it. The colours look so much more pigmented and beautiful in the pan than they actually translated onto the skin for me. As I have a fair complexion, I normally find I have to be careful in the application of any colour, but the blush in this compact needed to be really built up to see anything significant. The bronzer was slightly more pigmented, and I did like the formula of it, except for the obvious shimmer running through. It’s not meant for contouring at all.
I wouldn’t say this is a terrible product, as I do think it would be great for someone beginning with makeup. I say that because you can’t really be too heavy handed with these formulations, and the price point is unbeatable. But for someone like me, who has a little more experience with makeup and is willing to pay more for a product it’s not going to see any love.
Have you tried this compact? What was your impression?
