i have had this duo for so long now and i havent hit pan yet cuz i dont use it as often...however it is pretty darn good....both the blush and bronzer are very pigmented but im not the kind that likes very shimery face products and thats why i only use it once in a while
I don't get the hype of this product. It's full of shimmer! First time I tried this, I used the blush and my boyfriend noticed "why is there glitter on your face?!"... Not good, definitely not good.
Both the blush and the bronzer have shimmer in, and no it is not fine, it is very much noticeable goldeny particles. If you don't mind that, then you might like this - the shades themselves are nice and blend easily The blush is a peachy pink (more pink on me), and the bronzer is not orange-looking and can work well on fair skins if you are light handed and blend well.
One word, AMAZING! I needed a new bronzer, my physicians formula one broke and shattered all over the place. It was kind of expensive for a drugstore product so I figured I'd check out some other companies. I was in target and saw this and bought it.First of all the price is incredible. I got mine for 3 dollars. In my personal opinion, it's just as good as the Nars blushes and bronzers which are like 30 dollars with tax. The texture of both the blush and bronzer is so smooth, very easy to blend out, not chalky or dusty feeling. The color of the bronzer is quite dark which is perfect for my tan skin. The blush is beautiful peachy pink that looks beautiful on my skin tone as well. The blush is a bit shimmery but it's not like chunky annoying glitter. The bronzer barely has any shimmer from what I can see. If it does it's very little. The packaging is a slim black compact with a nice sized mirror. Doesn't take up too much room in my makeup bag and it's quite durable. I've dropped it already and it made it out alive. I am very pleased with this. For the money you get amazing quality. Elf is one of my new favorite companies now! Definitely worth a try!
I got this in St. Lucia, since it's the lightest shade, and I hadn't had good luck with actual bronzers before (as opposed to darker face powders). I like the colours a lot, I think they feel nice, blend well and complement each other. The only thing I could do without is the shimmer, but I don't really notice it on my face.
This is a perfect contour/bronzer color for my NC25-30 skin. Love it and use it much more than my Nars Laguna bronzer. The blush is good for a more natural look, but isn't as impressive as the contour color, regardless it's $3 and the packaging is sleek and slim!
I heard so much about this product so I decided to try it. The blush is very shimmery but is a very nice peachy color, sadly it does not look good with my skin tone. I've never been one to use bronzer but if I was I wouldn't use this one, again it's shimmery and very dark but blends well into your skin. I wouldn't get this again because I don't use it but i can see why some people would
One of the very few products that I have hit pan and will be repurchasing! This is my go-to contour powder. Easy to use, blendable and the color is buildable. The only thing that I would want E.L.F to improve on is the blush part. I don't understand whether they want it as a blush or a highlighter. Make up your mind, ELF. If you want it as a blush, can you make it more pigmented and less shimmery? If it's a highlighter, better make it less glittery since it's an in-between highlighter for me.
Over-all, very cheap but very good product!
I purchased this product after seeing this on the dup list on Pinterest. I've always wanted to try the Nars blush, but I'm glad I tried this one. I have olive tan skin and this peach color blush does wonders on my skin. It gives my face a natural glow. I love that this product has the conturing powder which matches perfectly to my skin.. not too dark nor too light.
The packaging is very similar to the NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo, but that's about it. They swatch differently and one very important difference, this breaks me out and the NARS does not.
I used primarily the bronzer along my hairline and experimented with using it as a contour on my acne-prone skin. And I ended up breaking out right where this product was used in annoying whiteheads.
The shade of the bronzer is perfect for my NW25/30 skin, but I can't use it because it breaks me out. Needless to say, I will not be repurchasing.
i have repurchased this a couple times, it is a great dupe for the orgasm languna Nars duo. The bronzer is really dark on my fair skin especially in the winter, sometimes i can get away with using it to contour a little bit in the summer. I mainly buy it for the blush though, love the colour.
