Faking Those Rosy Cheeks

9 comments


You're probably getting sick of seeing this blush on my blog, it's featured in two posts already, but I thought I'd do a full review of it for you, to show you how pretty it really is! If you've read my previous posts, you'll know that I actually have no idea what shade this is as ELF don't put shade names on their blushes, which really annoys me. I have 5 ELF blushes and some of them are quite similar, so I can't match them to swatches/photos on the site, which sucks really. ELF please start putting shade names on products!

Other than that, this blush is one of my all time favourite blushes, so I guess knowing what shade it is would help me. It's a lovely deep pink toned blush, with a little shimmer to it, but not so much that it's completely noticeable. A sweep of this on the apples of your cheeks leaves a perfect winter rosy glow, if you can't have the natural blushed look, fake it til you make it. 

Seeing as this blush retails at £3.50, I wasn't expecting anything special really, maybe a bit of colour that lasted a few hours. I was so wrong, this blush is so pigmented, you have to be careful whilst applying otherwise you can be left to look like a bit of a clown. I usually swipe my brush across the blush in the pan, and then across my hand before applying lightly to the face. A light hand is key here. The blush applies evenly, and is so easily blended into the skin to achieve the look you want. On to weartime, I'm truly shocked. I wear this blush to college, and sometimes my days are 8+ hours, and although it made fade a tiny bit during the day, there's still a gorgeous flush of colour on my cheeks at the end of the day.

If anyone wants to take a guess at what shade this is, feel free and please let me know! I just can't work it out, there's two I can't chose between. All ELF blushes are of the same quality for the same bargain price, so I'd recommend picking up any of them.

Have you tried anything from ELF?
