Hi Friends,
it's a new post. I try to post with my new style of reviewing products, it's shorter, view words but can answering all the questions like how about the colors, staying power, pigmentation, etc. I think this way is not gonna made you feel bored to read my reviews, i hope. You can get the essentials of the product review without reading lot of unnecessary words LOL . It doesn't mean i'm too lazy to write but i'm still doing my review with a purpose to give you a complete information about the beauty product. so yaa, i hope you can enjoy it..
Today is a review about ELF studio blush & bronzing powder duo in 'antiqua'. Over 2 month ago, ELF website launched lot of the new item and colors for their current products including more 2 colors for the e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder.
I take my time to choosing what their newest product that i wanting so much.
I know the e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder concept is similar with NARS blush/bronzer duo. it's like a dupe for NARS angelika/laguna duo. the NARS angelika/laguna duo is awesome. lot of beauty blogger rave about that and i'm so curious and wanting to try the colors combo like NARS angelika/laguna duo, but since i don't wanna spending over $40 just for a blush/bronzer, i choose this similar stuff that cost much cheaper than NARS duo. finally i bought this e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder in antiqua'.
Product name :
e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder
IDR 60rb
Whats this? ( elf claims) :
Create a healthy and natural glow all year long with the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. The Blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of color, while the Bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition. This convenient compact has just what you need to achieve a gorgeous glow anytime, anywhere.

Packaging :
ELF put blush n bronzer together in a shiny black plastic packaging,
the plastic looks sturdy and it comes with a mirror in it..
the size is quite bulky but its thin and sleek..

The pigmentation is great,
The colors are really opaque. you can get the colors like on the pan with a very light handle..

The colors & Finish:

  • The bronzer color is a dark reddish brown. i choose this antigua because i thought can using the bronzer part as a contouring powder but i was wrong, the color is too orange.
  • The blush color is bright pink with a blue undertone. i love the kind of this color, it makes my face brighter with a natural pink flush.
  • It's really flattering when i'm pairing this blush with an bright pink lipstick too.
  • I think this elf blush/bronzer would look good on medium dark skin-tone, with cool undertone.
  • Both of the blush or bronzer is have a shimmer finish, this stuff contains tons of silver glitter in it.

it's soft but a little bit powdery.

Staying power:
it stays for 4-5 hours on my cheek.

Overall, this blush have a average quality. it's not super amazing considering for the cheap price but it's quite ok. the texture, pigmentation and staying power is ok! i don't like the bronzer color which is too orange and hate the shimmery finish. i imagine if this duo is a matte, i'll definitely love it.
Thx for reading...
