- long wearing
- glitter (need to buff out to remove)
Comments: Pretty color that works with my olive complexion. I find it much easier to wear than Pink Passion. There will be glitter, but buffed out and it is a matte blush.
Its very pigmented and the actulal color is very pretty but what the f*** is with the giant pieces of craft glitter in it?!?!
Great blush! I bought this color upon reading the reviews that said the lighter colors had little pigmentation. The packaging is very sleek and compact and very professional looking. For me it only takes a few little swipes to get a natural flushed look. For $3, I am planning on buying more colors!
This is my first ELF purcase. I'm very impressed with the quality considering the price. Lots of pigment so a little goes a long way. I will be trying other products.
In the package, this blush looks very beautiful and sparkly. For some reason I expected it to be less glittery when it went on my cheeks. But no, it's truly a hot pink with glitter blush! Some girls love it, some girls hate it. Personally I would only wear it on a night out. Not in the daytime. It's too glittery and bright for that. The only reason I said I wouldn't rebuy is because I don't use it often enough to run out anytime soon.
I just love this blush! I wear pinks and purples and I have been looking for a replacement for the Smashbox Beechwood that they discontinued. Mind you, that blush was $24 and this one is a meer 3. It is very pigmented, but I don't agree with other reviewers that say it is super sparkley. I barely notice the sparkle, but because it is so pigmented, I use a very light hand with it. I also go over my makeup with a layer of loose powder, so that might make a difference, but really, I think the sparkle is just the right amount of subtle. I would call this color a dark cotton candy pink. I like blushes that have no hint of orange or brown and this fits the bill. For $3 for the blush and another $3 for the ELF contoured blush brush, I can afford a set at home and on the go. Love it!
This blush looks somewhat intimidating in the pan, a muted hot pink with chunks of glitter, but when you apply it, it's in a whole other ballpark.
The glitter is not very noticeable when applied to the skin, and it actually leaves a nice sheen acting as a blush and highlighter in one. The glitter is not felt or harsh when applied to the skin. I am very anti sparkle makeup, and this is a blush I use a lot. This is cool toned and may look a bit Barbie-esque on someone warm toned. Can be applied gently for NW20 skin, like myself, and is easily built up to show on NC/NW35s. Apply with a light hand on fair skin and gives a nice hint of color with a small amount of highlight. I dig it, but there's definitely better blushes by ELF.
This blush is a weird one........
Packaging is nice.
You may skip school.
This blush makes you look like you have a fever much less you spent to much time tanning and are now sunburned.
The pigmention is shockingly uneven, purple, pink then pale, then glitter chunks across your cheeks is how it shows up.
The glitters are so big they do not just sit there they scream "look at me I am a disco ball".
I am more for sheer or matte blushes, I don't mind some shimmer but this is a disco ball in a flat package.
I...have mixed feelings about this blush. First of all, the color is gorgeous and just plain fun. It's such a pretty shade of fuchsia, and very flattering! Applied on my light-medium skin, it's sort of a more raspberry-toned version of dolly cheeks and would look lovely in the winter. It channels a clear "weekend" vibe, as in this plus jeans and a white sweater with a book and you'll knock the socks off of anyone who gets the pleasure of basking in your lazy Sunday glow. It's very pigmented and requires a light hand. The packaging is sturdy and functional with a little window in the front so that you can see the color of the blush. Lasts decently well for a powder blush on my oily skin, about 4-5 hours (longer than MAC, not as long as Rock & Republic). And it's only $3. $3!! What!?
But...it's SUCH a glitterbomb! I think I finally understand what ladies mean when they criticize a product for making them "sparkle like a Cullen." Now, the glitter IS pretty and the particles have an unusual gold-winking-silver sheen (I think I've only ever seen that type of glitter in Benefit's Coralista). But I'm getting to that age and stage where I'm very careful about wearing glitter on my face in day-to-day business. It's easy to knock most of the glitter out by just firmly tapping your brush handle against the side of your sink, but some glitter is still there, and it ain't nothing subtle, no sirree. I would probably have liked this blush a lot more when I was a bit younger. If you like glitter and sparkle in your blush, snag this baby! But if not--look elsewhere! continued >>
I'm so in love with this blush, I'm gonna marry it. First, this is such a cool-toned pink that it almost skews lilac. And another thing: glitter. Lots of gold-toned glitter. I don't agree with people who say there are "chunks" of glitter. The glitter is very small but there's lots of it, and it can easily be brushed off with extra blending. However, if you really despise glitter, this is definitely not for you. What blew my mind is that I can't get a blush to last more than 30 minutes on my cheeks, and this has been sitting on my face for 3 hours. That's like 2 days in Blush Years for me! To me it's plenty pigmented, but I have very light skin, so everything kind of shows up easily on me. But for 3 bucks, are ya gonna complain? I sure won't.
