I'm a pretty big sucker for natural cosmetics, and even more so with cruelty free cosmetics. Maybe that's why I post quite a bit about Elf Cosmetics. (I'm kinda crazy about so many of their products if you haven't noticed, lol) Well I just picked up the 4 shades of their new Pressed Mineral Blushes and oh my GAWD! These are so pigmented...and I wasn't really expecting that at all! They are super smooth, super pigmented and super lightweight! They blend like a dream and are so freaking gorgeous! These lasted all day for me so far, (I'm on hour number 9 at the moment, and I'm using the makeup Mist and Set as well) and Sweet Retreat, Cabo Cabana and Wanderlust are going to be my new go-to daily blushes! When you see these shades, you'll completely understand why!
Cabana: A beautiful deep warm coral. There is a small amount of
glitter, but most of it actually doesn't transfer to the skin. This
shade is a must-have for those of you with olive toned skin! (Also for
ladies who are very fair skinned!)
Jet Setter: A richly pigmented matte rose shade. Medium to deeper skinned ladies, you gotta try this one! It's THE perfect medium rose color, not too dark and not too light.
This color is extremely rich, so fair-skinned girls please use a light
hand! This is such a sexy shade gals! For those of you with deeper skin;
this is going to be your fave shade--trust me. It's got a nice deep
red/mauve pigmentation with super teeny tiny sparkles. This is your next
go-to blush for the clubs, I promise! It's going to catch just enough
light particles to give the illusion that you've descended from
Heaven--and yet it's got that sultry plum-red shade that will take
everyone's eyes off of your horns. It's absolutely perfect.
Retreat: This is probably my fave shade of all! I haven't tanned in a
while, so my skin has becaome a tad bit lighter than I'm personally used
to. With that being said, I've been rocking more light peachy pinks as
of late. If benefit's Dandelion and Dallas had a baby, this would be it!
This one's a matte, muted pink with a soft hint of coral. Totally not a
"baby pink" kinda shade, but a light pink shade that's mature, elegant
and sophisticated. You have to try this one for sure!
Here's the Verdict:
blushes are fucking beautiful. They last quite some time, they are
wonderfully pigmented, they blend better than the Elf Studio blushes,
they are lightweight, creamy, soft and they are a goddamn miracle in a
sleek round case. I'm in love. Sorry boyfriend...
