LOVE this product! I don't get a lot of usage out of the blush because, while it's a pretty color, it's a little chalky and has a lot of fallout. It just kind of gets everywhere. But the bronzer? Holy crap! PERFECT for giving my face that perfect glow. And it's great for contouring as well. They should DEFINITELY sell that separately! I'd buy the crap out of it!
I love the contouring powder! Its not overly shimmery and it sculpts my face perfectly. The only thing I dont like about the duo is the blush, I feel like the blush is a little too light for my skintone, so I apply it a little higher than I normally would blush for a more highlighted effect. I wish they would come up with more duos to this!
This is a great little duo! I am a makeup junkie, I admit- so I do not reach for this everyday- but it is a GREAT product for anyone's collection! The bronzer is great- does have a little shimmer, but gives a nice glowy-effect. I do not find it to be "muddy" or "orange" on my skin, just a pretty, bronzed glow! The blush is beautiful- most often compared and considered a dupe for NARS orgasm. Whether it is or not, it's a great color!
This is a great product for the price- you CANNOT beat it! Whether used daily (I would, if I would just remember it's in my drawer, among the 100 other bronzers and blushes I own :) :) :) or as a travel piece- as the 2-in-1 is a great combo for travel! :)
How in the world can you beat this for $3?! Definitely give it a try :)
I love this. Both products are very pigmented, but blend-able.
Love it! I bought this partly out of curiosity to see if it was a Nars dupe or not. Also, because I was traveling a lot this summer and was trying to reduce the number of products I took with me. Also, wanted something cheap, so if the airlines broke or lost it I would not cry. I have the Nars Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer in separate containers. Not the duo. They are more sparkly than this, but I like matte, so I am fine with the ELF duo being more matte. I think the blush is lighter than Orgasm, but I'm fine with that, too. But the color payoff for the bronzer side is quite strong. Use a light hand with that. I liked it though, because it worked very well for contouring my face. You can practically draw lines with the bronzer it is so pigmented and yet, it dusts off very nicely to look more natural. Like! And yes, win!
I love the bronzer in this! Although it has shimmer, it's not so noticeable and it looks great in photos. It's my favorite bronzer ever. I wish they had the bronzer by itself though because I hate the blush. The blush is too powdery and doesn't compliment my skin tone.
I bought this because I was obsessed with trying to find a good bronzer for my face. I bought this because it was the bronzer and the blush in one. When I first used it I thought that the blush was to light and i was really used to having a darker red on my checks. But as I started using i realized that using the bronzer and the blush on my cheeks gave me a really natural look. Overall I really liked this product and its really cheap.
Wow, I was really surprised at the quality of this product, for only being $3. I've read so many great reviews, and I saw this one day at target, and decided to give it a try. I use it every day!
I didn't think I would like the blush very much from looking at it in the pan and from swatching it, but when I put it on my face, it gives a very natural looking glow that would suit anyone with fair-medium skin. If you have darker skin, I don't think it would show up very easily, but I would use a dense brush to apply the blush on top of your cheekbones - it would make a nice, subtle highlight.
The bronzer is very pigmented - almost a bronzer-eyeshadow hybrid. I wish it were less pigmented though, because I have to be really careful with it especially since I have fair skin, i.e. use a very light hand, and a fluffy brush. I usually use a regular lighter colored shimmery bronzer first, and then use this one as a contour under my cheekbones, temples, and jawline.
What I like most about this bronzer is that its a neutral tone, so itd go well with any skin tone. A lot of bronzers that I have tried have ended up looking too orange on my face, and I'm glad that this one doesn't.
I really reccommend this product, and I'm sure you'll love it as much as I do. And if not, it's only $3. A lot cheaper than the $39 Nars duo that everybody compares this to (which, in my opinion, isn't very similar at all, besides the packaging.)
I am so impressed! I do not know if E.L.F. has changed things but I do not see tons of shimmer in this as so many have stated in their reviews. The bronzer has more of a light sheen to it and the blush appears to be a cross between a matte and a satin finish, just beautiful. The bronzer and blush are both pigmented, they applied beautifully and lasted the entire day with no touch-ups. The bronzer is a true neutral medium brown color and the blush is a peach/pink shade, looks gorgeous against my NW20 skin. I could see where if you did not know how to use bronzer and blush how this amazing duo could leave you looking like a dirty clown, (lol) but if you apply it properly your skin will look beautiful because both the bronzer and blush will compliment most skin tones. If you are fair like me the trick is to pick some product up on your brush, tap off the excess and then blot your brush on a paper towel before you apply it. Sometimes just tapping off the excess is not enough for us lighter skin girls. For THREE DOLLARS this is a BARGAIN! Heavens to Betsy, the mirror inside the compact is worth that alone!
I love this! It's so affordable and they're both good colors. The bronzer is a bit dark, but I apply it lightly and it's fine. What I love the most is the blush; I wear it all the time. I wish the blush color was sold on it's own, but if they do I haven't seen it. For $3, this duo is a total steal!
