Review E.L.F. Cosmetics: Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

The Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder sells for $3.00 USD. I've been told by friends that this is supposedly to be a knock-off of NARS' Highlighting/Bronzing Blush Duo. Either way, E.L.F.'s makeup does the job and for less the cost!

I really like the compact the product comes in; it's a sleek and elegant black case. In my experience, both the blush and bronzer are easy to apply because they are finely milled. Also the blush and bronzer has a natural color with a hint of shimmer. FYI, the blush appears to be more shimmery than the bronzer. They are lightweight, easy to build up color (if necessary), and blend well into the skin. Personally the products are highly pigmented and long-lasting (i.e. they don't fade or wear off for at least 8 hours).  I think they are suitable for all skin types

I lightly brush on the bronzing power in the hollows of my cheeks (i.e. under cheekbones), and jaw line in order to create for definition. Or I use the blush on the apple of my cheeks and a quick dusting on my forehead to create a warm healthy glow. I highly recommend the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. I am planning to repurchase this product.

I use the bronzer to contour my nose bridge. I love ELF.

I'm gonna steal your finger prints! I think you should review textbooks; there's enough makeup gurus out there on the internetz.
