REVIEW: ELF Contouring blush and Bronzing powder

"Creates a healthy and natural glow all year long. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add 

a flush of color, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful 

definition."  -- www.eyeslipsface.com 

I think this product is one of THE most raved product from ELF. I have been hearing a lot of people saying that this product is a great dupe for NARS' Orgasm and Laguna Duo, which I cannot agree or disagree with cause I do not have the latter product. I have never seen the NARS' Duo before but I did research and the product looks so much the same. 

I have been using this product, specifically the bronzer, for more than a year now. I use it every single day to give shape to my big round face. hehe AND I absolutely am in love with it. I kid you not! I cannot leave the house without it. CONTOURING makes a HUGE difference! 

I LOVE IT! And it is obvious! hehe I hit pan on the bronzer already. :D 
If you guys can see, the products obviously have chunks of glitters on it. And I am  not a fan of glitters, but once you put it on your face and blend it really well. The glitters/shimmers doesn't show up that much.

I don't use the blush that much cause I think its too light. And whenever I apply it on my face by itself, it doesn't show any color.
[ BTW, I am a shade of NC42 on MAC foundation ] 

So, I think those people who have lighter skin shade can use the blush for a natural glow. 
I sometimes combine the two color for a very sun kissed looking glow on the face.

The blush is a light peach color with a pink-ish undertone. And it has a chunks of gold glitters. 
The bronzer is a warm toned brown color with chunks of gold glitters as well.

* It is very pigmented! The color shows off after 1-2 coats/layer
* The packaging looks super chic! I love how compact it is. 
* The bronzer is amazing! It has glitters but it doesn't really look shimmery on the face. 
* It is super smooth on the skin and you wont have a hard time applying it. 
* It is super cheap and you can find it at any ELF counters. 
I bought it for Php 249.50 at Watsons Mall of Asia. 
* It will last you a very long time. 
I believe I bought it last year, June 2011. And I use it every single day! Until now I still have lots of product. :) 

* The blush is too light. But its build - able. 
* It is a bit chalky. [ what I do is a I tap the excess product from the brush before applying it on my face. ]

I love it more than I don't because I think for its price, the product is amazing! 
I can't say enough good things about it cause I really really love it. I think a bronzer/contouring powder is a must have in every girl's kikay kit. 

I cannot compare it with any other bronzers cause I haven't used other brands yet. So for now, this is my go-to product. :) 

Will I repurchase it? 
YES! But I would love to just buy the bronzer one cause I really don't use the blush that much. 

Will I recommend it? 
I will definitely recommend this to everyone! Especially those who don't have enough money yet to buy high end products like MAC or NARS. This is definitely a must have! :)
