ELF Studio Blush Pink Passion Review, Swatches & FOTD

Hello Guys,

Today I am reviewing the Elf Studio Blush from my Ulta haul that I had posted eons back. I have been so busy lately that all the reviews I had planned have taken a back seat. I am going to set up a weekly planner and stick to it to my best!! Let’s see how well that would go *fingers crossed*. Here are my thoughts on this lovely pink blush called Pink Passion.

Product Description

The soft sheer texture blends into the skin for a silky finish. Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth. Highlight your complexion with a subtle healthy glow!

Price  $3 for 4.75 g

Ingredients List

Talc, Mica, Silica, Magnesium Stearate, Paraffinum Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Polybutene, Sodium Dehydroacetate May Contain: Iron Oxides (CI 77491, CI 77492, CI 77499), Manganese Violet (CI 77742), Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891), Yellow 5 Lake (CI 19140), Red 40 Lake (CI 16035), Ultramarines (CI 77007), Blue 1 Lake (CI 42090), Red 7 Lake (CI 15850), Red 6 Lake (CI 15850)

What I think

Packaging

The Elf Studio Blush comes in a compact matte black rectangular casing with a flip open lid. The lid has a small rectangular transparent plastic portion that allows you to see the product. I find this absolutely brilliant and stylish. If you own more than one of this blush then picking up the right color is a breeze. There is a teeny tiny sticker with the shade number and code at the bottom of the case. The blush also comes with a built in mirror on the inner side of the lid. Packaging wise, this blush scores full points!

Texture

The blush is matte with a bit of chalky-ness to it. I just swirl my blush brush a few times on the surface, tap of excess – which is inevitable by the way and then apply.

Shade

The shade Pink Passion is a beautiful pale bubblegum pink shade that would look absolutely pretty on very fair skin tones. It has good pigmentation and blends really well. It would give a lovely flush on fair to medium skin tones. Since the shade borders on the paler side – it wouldn’t suit those with deeper skin tones.

Worth factor

I love matte blushes. So suffice to say I like this elf blush and would have loved it if not for the powdery nature. It’s however not a deterrent to me since the color is gorgeous. The packaging is another factor. It’s so cute!! Now coming to the staying power, this cutie works like a charm – it lasts without any fading for 6 to 8 hours straight! (Non humid conditions on my normal/dry cheeks)

To sum it up, I am liking the elf studio blush and would buy a few more colors! Especially the ones that were out of stock last time. Though the texture needs some work, the packaging, shade and staying power are bomb for a $3 blush. Ironically Maybelline blushes – my drugstore favorite are expensive here when compared to how much they retail for in India.

Pros

  • Matte texture
  • Compact and cute packaging
  • Lovely pink shade
  • Good pigmentation
  • Blends well
  • Lasts about 6 to 8 hours with zero fading
  • Affordable
  • Good shade range

Cons

  • Bit powdery
  • Too light for deeper skin tones

Recommendation

Elf Studio Blushes are one of the best budget blushes available here in US. They retail for $3 and the product is a whopping 4.75g!! This will last forever girls 😉 If I overlook the packaging, then Maybelline cheeky glow blushes are the best budget blushes in India. So suffice to say, if you could try Elf products, then their studio blushes are worth checking out.

    Looking so lovely on you. It seems like you have a natural flush. I really like elf products. Specially their eye shadows. They always have moderate staying power and good color pay off. Now I am feeling sad coz these blushes are not easily available in India 🙁
