E.L.F Natural Radiance Blush in Flushed
I was walking around Global City last Monday and boy I almost fainted while waiting for the BGC bus. Nobody can deny that the summer season has begun. It is scorching hot outside. When I got to Market Market I immediately checked my face and was amazed that my makeup was still perfect.
Foundation – check, mascara – check, blush – CHECK!!!
I was wearing an E.L.F blush, a drugstore brand but it withstood the heat of the sun and the oiliness of my face.
During this hot season I usually wear only tinted moisturizer, lip balm and cheek tint + peachy pink powder blushes like E.L.F. Natural Radiance Blush in Glow…but since right now I can’t find it I opted for the other shade I have, Flushed.
Anyway here’s my review on the E.L.F Natural Radiance Blush in Flushed. I’ve been using it this week and I’m awed with the praises I get from the people around me. Telling me that I look healthy. I usually look pale without blush.
This exquisite, delicate, pigment payoff makes cheeks radiant combined with a healthy-looking glow. Infused with texturizing agents, skin feels smooth and pores are minimized.
Gently slide cover backwards over blusher compartment to open.
To Apply: Brush e.l.f. professional blush brush gently over powder, tap excess powder off brush and blend into apples of cheek.
Net weight: 0.07oz (2g)
The packaging could be a little tricky for first time users. I myself had a hard time opening it the first time. It comes in a drawer-like container. You just need to slide it. :)
I didn’t notice any scent but according to the site it has a sugar orange scent.
A plum shade with a hint of shimmer. It is actually very pigmented and the color in the pan is the same color you get when you apply it. It gives me a healthy glow without looking too shimmery. I think this would work on most skin tones.
Tiny silver shimmer
The texture is a little powdery or chalky but it blends well on my cheeks. Since this is a little chalky it suits my oily skin as powder is great for oily skinned people.
The staying power of this shade is fantastic. It lasts for around 4 hours on my cheeks unlike E.L.F.’s Natural Radiance Blush in Glow which only lasts for 2 hours max.
At Php 129, it is very affordable. I think all products of E.L.F. are reasonably priced.
Where To Buy
Bought this in Landmark, Trinoma but is widely available in department stores.
