ELF Contouring Blush/Bronzing Powder, Tone Correcting Concealer Review

This review has been requested by Chesca :)
So, let's begin!

1.) Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder- 0.28oz/ 8.0g

-Outside:
Sleek Matte Black Compact with the ELF logo in the front of the compact case and below it says the name of the product. "Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder"

-Inside:
Full-sized compact mirror which is great on the go.
2 seperate pans for the blush & bronzer.

-Blush:
The color is baby doll pink with a slight peach undertone with soft flecks of gold.
Goes on pretty sheer compared to the bronzer.

-Bronzer:
The color is dark brown with soft flecks of gold, perfect for contouring the hallows of your cheeks & the sides of your nose to give it a more elongated effect.

*make sure you don't just brush it on.
Note that this bronzer is very pigmented and it can look very heavy if you don't blend well.
So to avoid "too much" blending, make sure you just get a small amount, tap off the excess and gently pat the brush w/ product on the hallows of your cheeks or any desired place.

>> on a side note: a ton of other reviews regarding this products specifically noted that the packaging is fairly similar to NARS & also the blush is very dupe-able to NARS' orgasm or deep throat & the bronzer is very similar to NARS' laguna.

NARS' Orgasm & Laguna Duo- $37.00 at Sephora

E.L.F's Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder --$3.00

very similar right?? so it's up to you whether you wanna spend a wopping $37 for a NARS' duo or the very affordable ELF's Contouring Blush & Bronzer for just $3 :)


2.) Tone Correcting Concealer- net wt. 0.08oz/ 2.3g

-Packaging:
Much smaller than I thought it'd be.
Sponge-tip applicator.

What it does:
According to the ELF website, it says that it hides complexion imperfections, evens out skin tone and gives you a natural looking skin with silky smooth coverage.

It is also Hypoallergenic which is great for those who have sensitive skin.

It has a a semi-wide range of colors to pick (I got mine in Honey, a few shades lighter than my acctual skin-tone cause I specifically use this product for my under-eye circles, to hide my "panda eyes" lmao)

My Take/ Tips:
It does glide on smooth but make sure you set it with any kind of powder to prevent creasing.

Gently "dot" the product with the sponge-tip applicator along the parts where you want it concealed (ie: under the eyes, scars, blemishes, etc) & using your own fingers gently pat in on to belnd with your skin.

*So here's my review/ opinions about these products. Enjoy!

P.S: Ches, I already did a review on the ELF make-up brushes (see the blog below this one) hope this review was helpful to you :]
