I love using these darker blush shades during autumn and winter. They can be sheered out or built up to look great on all skin tones! There is a “Light” palette as well, this review is on the “Dark” palette.
I really like the packaging because it holds a huge, clear mirror inside and is fairly sturdy. The blushes can pop out of the palette, so if you have other palettes from e.l.f. (contour, illuminating, etc.) you can switch the colors up. The blushes move around a bit when shaken but they do not fall out of the palette unless you push them out.
These are very pigmented and therefore it is better to use a stipple or fluffy loose brush and tap off the excess quite a bit before applying, you can then built it up to the intensity you like. If you do put on too much; these blushes are very blendable and buttery, so it won’t be too much work blending them out. These blushes last a fairly good amount of time; they will still be on your cheeks after a school/work day.
All of the shades are matte except for the bottom left blush, which has tiny golden glitters in it.
Swatched in order from left to right.
I really like these blush palettes, their formula is similar to the mineral blushes; not the studio blushes.
Have you tried the e.l.f. blush palettes?
