I'm a huge fan of e.l.f. cosmetics because they're very affordable and they work really well on me. I'm slowly building up my collection of e.l.f. cosmetics. I would buy them all but there are just some items that I don't have any use for. I don't like their creme shadows and their lip glosses. Well, I don't really like lip glosses. On the other hand, I'm planning to buy all the shades of their blushers and some other things.
Here are two of their blushers:
Glow and Bronze
Some bloggers say that Glow is a NARS Orgasm dupe. I wouldn't know because I haven't bought Orgasm yet. Here are the swatches:
I swiped the blushers several times for the camera to be able to capture the shades. These blushers are very pigmented. When I use Glow, I just pat my brush once on the pan then pat it on the back of my hand once then apply on my cheeks. Be sure to blend, blend, blend. Be careful with this shade as it can make your cheeks very pink.
Bronze, on the other hand, is exactly that. You can use it as a bronzer. I use it when I feel like going neutral on some days. It's a really beautiful bronze color. It works well with our summer heat. You'll look like a bronze goddess, freshly out of the beach when you get to the office, even when you're all sweaty especially when you highlight on all the right areas.
Price is Php129.75 at Beauty by SM.
I really love these affordable makeup because I can experiment/play with them and screw up and not worry about the price. I am slowly learning techniques that suit me well and so I am slowly going up the makeup ladder too.
