ELF Blush Review: Peachy Keen & Mellow Mauve

Hi lovelies, It's been a rainy Wednesday in Manila and instead of going to Makati, I decided to stay home. I have a bad cold and a very runny nose! :( So instead I decided to do a review on my only 2 ELF blushes in Peachy Keen and Mello Mauve. I bought these blushes from Jen's blogsale about 1 month ago and decided to share with you all what I like and don't like about the product. :)

Overall, the packaging of the blushes are similar to that of NARS blushes. The only difference with ELF packaging is that it doesn't have the Matte-rubberry feel like Nars packaging. Also packaging of ELF has a clear plastic area, which is a plus for me since it will be easier to indicate what color blush is inside the packaging.

The blush itself is very nice. The first time I received it I was adorned with the subtle shimmer the blushes had. The blushes have a silky feel to them.

Out of the 2 shades I got, Peachy Keen is my better pick. The color looks better on my skin tone best for everyday looks.

Here's a rundown on ELF Blushes:


Likes:
- Packaging makes it easy to distinguish blush shade inside
- I like how subtle the shimmers are
- Very smooth on skin
- I got them cheap from jen at PHP400 for both new in box :)


Dislikes:
- Not very pigmented, I need a couple of strokes on my brush before getting a good amount of color.
- Not abundant in the Philippine Market



So here's me in my jammies using Peachy Keen teehee! :)




Toodles! :)
