elf Contouring Blush Bronzing Duos…
- $3.00 each
- available at eyeslipsface.com, Target, Walmart, and K-Mart
- comes in 3 shades: St. Lucia (the original one), Antigua, and Turks & Caicos
These blush and bronzing duos are highly pigmented, almost too pigmented, in fact. They can be difficult to blend, but you just need to work with them. They’re beautiful, and are worth the little extra “work” of blending. :) Just apply with a light hand, using a duo fiber brush (they pick up the least amount of product).
They are also slightly powdery… which isn’t really a problem for me. The staying power is decent. These last all day long, with minimal fading. Of course, the lasting power usually depends upon your foundation, and how long that stays on your face.
I love that these duos come with a nice, large mirror. Because of that, as well as the fact that they are two products in one compact, they are great for travel!
St. Lucia is the original duo. It contains a peachy-pink blush with golden shimmer. The bronzer is warm with subtle golden shimmer. The shimmer is so subtle that it is not noticeable, so you could use it to contour. This one is the least pigmented of the bunch, which means it’s actually the easiest to apply.
Antigua has a cool-toned pink blush with gold glitter. If you tap your brush after getting some blush on your brush, a lot of the glitter falls off, which is nice. The blush creates a stunning bright pink flush to the cheeks! The bronzer is red-toned, which is nice. It has a very light shimmer to it, with no glitter. It’s crazy pigmented and a little difficult to blend.
Turks & Caicos contains a rosy-mauve blush with tones of light golden shimmer. It’s a beautiful neutral shade, and the shimmer is gorgeous! The bronzer is the deepest of the three, also red-toned and shimmery. There is no glitter in this one either. This is the most pigmented of the three… definitely use a light hand with this one!
Overall, I would totally recommend these elf Contouring Blush Bronzing Duos! They might be difficult for a beginner to use… or if you tend to be heavy-handed with your blush and bronzer. If that is the case, you may want to skip these. ;) I probably won’t repurchase them, because I simply cannot imagine using these up!
Have you tried any of these? What are your thoughts?
