I love blushes, I am blush obsessed, specially the blushes comes in palette. Today I am reviewing e.l.f Studio Blush Palette in Light and Dark(£7.50) which I got last year while shopping online in UK. I have also reviewed e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balms in my previous posts which you can find here. e.l.f. products are always fun to shop for. This raved about brand is always affordable and carries good quality products.
I really like the packaging of these palettes, pretty simple! The square shaped palettes are sleek black with a full size mirror inside which makes it very travel friendly. You can also take one of the blushes out of the palette. That way you can create your own palette with your favourite blushes and don’t have to carry too many palettes with you if you are going out on vacation.
Each palette has four shades, two of them have matte finish and other two have subtle shimmer. Each palette has a mix of warm and cool tones, so practically any undertone can find at least two shades to fit their style. The formula of these blushes is softer, super pigmented and easily blendable. You have to use a light hand while application as these blushes are very pigmented. I prefer stippling brush to apply.
The blush palette in Light contains cool pink, neutral tan, warm pink and warm coral. The coral shade contains some fine gold glitters. One shade has light shimmer which does not show up. This palette would be nice for those with medium to fair skin tones. If you have very deep skin tone then build intensity of the shade you like.
The blush palette in Dark contains a warm dusty mauve, deep neutral berry, warm rusty brick red and neutral brick red. The warm rusty brick red contains some gold glitters in it. One shade has light shimmer which does not show up. This palette would work for all skin tones. If you have fair skin then you will need to use a very light hand.
These blushes are not powdery or dusty at all which I really like about these both palettes. The lasting power of this blushes is amazing. I can usually get about 6-7 hours of wear from the shades in both palettes when I am wearing a full face of makeup. Both the palette are great for everyday use and easy to carry when you are travelling.
So what do you think about these e.l.f. blush palettes? Have you tried any of these palettes yet? Let me know your thoughts in comment section below. You can buy e.l.f. products from their website here if you are staying in UK. If you are staying in India you can buy e.l.f. products from iherb.
Today I am reviewing three e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balms(£4.50, Rs437.83) which I got last year while I was in UK. Last year I did huge e.l.f. haul but have not got chace to review them on blog. So finally today I am starting with Conditioning Lip Balms. When I opened my package from e.l.f., I was totally surprised how big these lip balms were. You get a lot of product in these containers! You get about 0.26 oz./7.5g. I got three shades Peaceful Pink, Blissful Berry and Mellow Melon. With the e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm, your lips get treated to a sheer splash of color that’s super smooth, velvety soft and non-sticky. Not only are these sheer, natural shades beautiful, they’re also beneficial, with natural ingredients that condition dry, chapped lips including Vitamins A & E. It also has SPF 15 to protect delicate lips against harmful sun damage.
e.l.f. Studio Conditioning Lip Balm comes in a large glass like plastic pot. I find packaging attractive and very strong. But for application on lips one has to dip fingers to get the product out which is unhygienic and it makes it a little less travel friendly. I apply it with my index finger for even application and opaqueness. Sometimes I use lip brush too. These balms are about twice the size of a traditional lip balm size. These have a small plastic covering over the rim of the lid after opening the main topper. I think it is included so the product would remain fresh.
It has creamy, thicker and moisturising consistency. It feels lightweight on lips though. It has mix of vanilla and coconuty scent which is not overpowering. For a tinted lip conditioner I would say this is quite pigmented and it leaves behind a nice pop of color. The formula wears well on my lips and feels hydrating and quite smooth. It adds nice shine to the lips too. All the three lip balms last about 2-4 hours depending on drinking and eating.
Peaceful Pink is a creamy bubble gum warm pink. It does not have any shimmer, pearl or frost. I really did not expect this product to have much pigment for a tinted lip conditioner. With one swipe, it gives a really natural pink flush to the lips. It is build-able for a pinker look. Peaceful Pink would look good on any skin tone.
Blissful Berry is warm rosy berry shade. It is sheer shade but gives very good colour pay off. If you want darker shade jusy keep layering it. Blissful Berry compliments my lips really well.
Mellow Melon is slightly more on coral shade. It is warm and instantly gives my lips life and a healthy appearance when I put it on.
Overall they are quality budget friendly tinted lip balms, so moisturisng and nourishing. It also has SPF15 to protect our lips from harmful UV rays. I have more reviews coming up on e.l.f. products so keep watching this space. You can buy e.l.f. products directly from their website. If you are staying in India you can buy e.l.f. cosmetics from Amazon, iherb.
Today I am going to review one more W7 Cosmetics Product – Lip Paint The Art Of Gloss in Girlie. W7 is one of budget friendly brands and they create budget friendly products similar to that of higher-end products. W7 Lip paint range has 5 gorgeous shades. Yesterday I have reviewed W7 Nail Polishes, in case if you have missed out that post please check it out, here.
The 12ml lip paints are available in squeeze tubes with a black screw lid. The packaging is in the same colour as the product. This lip paint smells minty and it has a creamy texture. The packaging of the lip paint is super cool and easy to use. The screw lid shuts tightly and can be carried in a hand bag without any concerns of leakage.
Girlie Lip Paint is a lip colour that has the longevity of a lipstick, with the ease of application of a gloss. This lip paint is well moisturised, increased wearability and ensures that colour stays intact and I think it also contains peppermint/menthol oil or leaf as that offers a cooling refreshing effect upon application.
This lip paint is the super intense colour, I am loving this fuchsia colour, the pigmentation is amazing and the colour pay off is top-notch and not sticky at all. This lip paint is a hybrid between a creamy lipstick and a lip gloss. The wear is comparable to any good creamy lipstick, and I found it lasts a good 5-6 hours without the need for a touch up. Even after fading, the lip paint leaves subtle stain on the lips, therefore a lip balm or primer is an essential, either wise a lipstick remover will be required.
W7 lip paint in Girlie is a fine addition to my lip collection and I am sure I am going to get the rest of the colours too. The formula provides a high shine, creamy feel, high pigmentation, and long-lasting.
Hope you enjoyed this post and would love to know your thoughts on this.
