elf Studio Blush & Bronzing Cream Review (and swatch comparisons)
Here is the “Low Down”-
- $3.00 for .35 oz/10 g (part of the “Studio” Line
- comes in 1 shade only: St. Lucia
- available at eyeslipsface.com, Target, Walmart, and everywhere else e.l.f. is sold
These creams have a thin, light consistency… they are not greasy or waxy and are nicely pigmented. They are super easy to blend in, with your fingers as well as a duo fiber brush. I love to use the “small stippling” brush by e.l.f. They can be worn alone, or for even more staying power, can be topped with a powder. These have decent staying power when worn alone… on my, they didn’t fade until after about 6 hours.
I have fairly normal skin, so I’m not sure how these cream products would wear if your skin is oily. Cream products are always great for dry skin, as well as this time of year!
As you can see, these are creamy and matte with no shimmer or glitter whatsoever. I think both of these shades are flattering for most skin tones.
In the photo below, I swatched the powder version of this product right next to this one, so you can see the similarities. The blushes are about the same shade, except for the glitter/shimmer in the powder one. The cream bronzer is a bit warmer and lighter than the powder one, but they are similar. These products would pair very nicely together.
I also wanted to show you how the cream bronzer in this palette compares to the Sonia Kashuk Undetectable Creme Bronzer (click for my review and photos). This product is a bit darker and cooler than that one. They are very similar, except that I’d say the SK one is a bit more easy to blend and work with and is not as pigmented.
Overall, I’d totally recommend this product! It is inexpensive, easy to apply, and looks nice.
