Hello! Today I have a lovely ELF frugal find for you. I picked up this ELF contouring blush and bronzer palette at target for $3.00. For those of you who don’t know, ELF stands for eyes lips face, and it’s a makeup company that sells an entire line of makeup starting at $1.00. I’ve always been a bit weary about ELF products because of their amazingly cheap prices, but I’ve realized that much if what I’ve tried from ELF has been quite good quality. I especially love the brushes. Anyway, on with the review!
This palette comes with a blush, a bronzer, and an enormous mirror. I love the size of the product and the packaging is very sleek. It reminds me a lot of the NARS duo in looks, but I can’t speak for the colors, although I’ve heard many people say that it can be a dupe for the NARS orgasm/laguna duo.
The bronzer: When I first swatched the bronzer, I thought it was much too dark and I was a bit disappointed because I really wanted a palette I could take around with me to save space when I travel. I decided to try it out anyway and I’m glad to find that although it is a little dark, it blends out nicely and The color lightens a bit to look more natural.
The blush: I love the color of the blush and the glow that it gives the cheeks. It’s a cool toned pink with subtle shimmer in it. It’s perfect to travel with, and I think it would complement a lot of skin tones.
Overall, I think I will get quite a lot of use out of this palette and for the price, it’s a steal!
