ELF products are great because they are really cheap but are still high quality. Smart Shopper Daphne Munro found that out when she recently compared makeup brands on price and quality. Here's the link to what she found:

This is quickly becoming my favorite blush! I actually love all of the Elf studio blushes - they are so cheap and work so well. I own nearly all of them, and will own all of them when my latest haul arrives :) This is a rosey mauve color, it looks quiet dark in the pan, but it can be applied sheer and it's just gorgeous. I have a light complexion with strong yellow undertones, and this blush really looks so pretty on my cheeks. You do need to use a light hand. It is just adorable on the apples. I thought I would not like this blush when I first opened it, and I actually ignored it for a long time, playing with the other colors in the line instead and then one day I finally put this on my cheek and I've been reaching for it every day since then. Wear time is average, but GOOD for the price, it blends wonderfully and is highly pigmented.

I'm not sure if it's just me, but this blush does not blend too smoothly. I like the color. I use it as an all over bronzer more than I do as a blush. Only cause my undertones are olive. It's also very cheap. Overall, I like it :)

I must say this is the perfect rosy blush I have been looking for! The product is really pigmented and deposits well on my cheeks. The colour is just right for my relatively fair asian skin. There seem to be very small shimmery particles but they are not too obvious on the skin. If anything, they give a slight glow. I just love this blush its perfect!!

It's a much cheaper version of NARS dolce vita in my opinion or at least on my face.
pigmentation is alright - it's not as pigmented as dolce vita [for that blush you have to have a super light hand or risk looking weird]
it's easily to layer the color to your preferred intensity but there is almost too much glitter in this one for my liking. It's not an unbearable amount of glitter but just my preference. If I'm in need of a berry color then I'll use it.

Picked this up at my local Dollar Tree. I tried to love it but it was just too shimmery for me. Great pigmentation though. I also like the packaging. Wouldn't purchase again though.

ELF Studio Blush in Blushing Rose can be described as a berry color with gold shimmer. For $3, you get 4.75 grams of product. That's a steal, in my book. ELF also has some great deals on their products all the time, so you almost never have to pay full price.
It appears really dark in the pan but goes on pretty sheer. You would have to do quite a few swipes to get it the true color in the pan. That's why I'm only giving it 3 stars. When I purchase a blush, I expect it to be the color I see in the pan. However, the fact that it's sheer can be a great thing if you're a fairer skin tone. If you're not, I feel like you're going to have a hard time getting this color to show up.
packaging is okay, but nothing special. It's a black plastic casing that says "elf blush" on the front. The front has a clear window on the front so you can see the color of the blush. When you open it up, it has a small mirror and the pan of blush below it. I have had issues with some of these blushes popping out of their pan because they're only held on with one strip of double stick tape, but what can you expect for $3?
Overall, I think ELF studio blushes are great but this one was kind of a miss for me. If a color isn't pigmented, I generally won't reach for it...as is the case with this one. I'll still use it occasionally but it's not one of my first choices, even in just the elf brand. I'd say save your $3.

Ahh, love love love this blush! Im getting a lot more color since the weather has been changing and this blush it perfect for that! At first, I was kinda intimidated by the dark color on my light skin but it looks beautiful. It gives me the perfect blush. Its not as pigmented as it appears in the pan, but for me thats a good thing. I think personally this could flatter all skin tones and Im really impressed with Elf's studio blushes! :) And for $3? You can manage to buy as many as you want!

Beautiful dark plum color that looks really flattering on most skintones. It is similar to e.l.f.'s studio blush in Berry Merry, but I think that one has some glitter in it. E.l.f.'s essential line blush in Flushed is also similar and so is Sleek's Pomegranate blush (except it is much more pigmented). I think it would definitely show up on tan skintones. On my NW15 skin just one swipe is enough for a pretty bold look so I have to blend quite a lot to make this work for me. Nice product for such a cheap price. Good packaging too.

I think this is a gorgeous color that looks good on every skin tone. It's what a rose blush should look like with subtle gold shimmers. I don't find this to have a tone of pigmentation, but that means I won't overdue it. I don't think people should expect this to be very pigmented since its only $3.

My everyday go to blush! I use this over my Nars Lovejoy blush. I was initially drawn to the Studio blushes because the packaging is similiar to that of Nars but of course some of the e.l.f blushes are hit or miss. I love this blush! So worth the $3. Its pigmented and I only use a little and I build it up to the color I desire. It last all day on me. I'm satisfied with this product!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Combination, Fair-Medium Hair: Brunette Eyes: Brown
Love this blush! The color is perfect for my skin tone all year long because it adds such a nice, better than natural flush. I find myself reaching for this all the time even though I have a rather large blush collection. This is just such a pretty color.
Although this isnt super long lasting if you put a cream blush under it, it should be fine for most of the day without touch ups. Marked the packaging down a point because the mirror is so small but for the price you cant beat it!
Not Overly Shimmer
Would like a bigger mirror
Not the longest lasting

this blush is crazily pigmented but unfortunately it makes me look bruised!

Dupe for NARS! for 3 bucks?! goes on very well...i do have to apply a couple coats but i like blending it with candid coral, which shows up as a pale shimmer on my NC43 skin!
as long as i have foundation underneath, tends to last a few hours at least!

I love this blush. I am a long-time fan and user of the NARS line of blushes, and when I saw this at Target, I thought, WHOA CRAZY GOOD DUPE???
Ok, so it's not QUITE as perfect as NARS (my version of HG blush, haha), but it is literally a FRACTION the price of a NARS pan of blush, so who is to complain there?
The color pay-off is great. Well-pigmented, so you could actually go easy with the brush and be careful of swiping on TOO much. Lovely deep rosy color that is very flattering. It looks shimmery in the pan, but for some reason, when I brush it onto my cheeks, there's almost zero shimmer? Not that I am complaining because I think I prefer it that way... semi-matte finish. A little powdery, but applies smoothly, blends well. So worth it for only $3. With that price, you could get this in all the other colors too for the price of ONE NARS blush, haha.

Well, I'm afraid I'm one of the few ones here. I am totally disappointed in this blush. I heard so many good reviews that this was easily blendable and highly pigmented and long wearing and such. But this could not have been farther from the truth, at least for me.
This did not show up on my NC35 skin. I had to reapply it 3 times before I get any decent color payoff. The color of the blush is a deep rose color with a hint of shimmer to it. This blush just looks unnatural. It just sits on top of my make up like some kind of a fugly beauty mark. Yuck! It doesnt even blend that well, the texture is pretty powdery to me, and I hate that. Not only that it disappears completely after just 3 hours. My bad maybelline and za blushers do so much better than this! I know its like 3 dollars right? what can you expect? But i didnt expect it would be this bad. Especially since I love most of ELF products that I've tried. Will not repurchase!

Well... I am more a HE kinda girl but cannot resist a bargain: then when I saw these ELF blushes are dupes for NARS blushes (that I adore) I caved in and made a huge order with ELF.. I said, WTH, even if they don't work they're dirty cheap and I can try.
Got the parcelquick, packaging is minimal but looks cheap. Ok, for 4 Euros can't really complain.
Blushing rose is PIGMENTED. I wrote thi in block as a word of warning. As my first attempt was a Failure!!
I proceeded to apply it with ELF Powder brush, but it is too dense and i packed up a load of powder with just one swirl. DISASTER! i looked like a clown!
The shade is a rose, with reddish undertones (very warm)... as i said you must go very very light handed as it is very pigmented (well at least on NW15-20 skins).
Seconds attempts: i used a stippling brush, not dense (duo fibre, like MAC # 187) snf I tapped ONCE (no swirl, just one tap).
It was the exact quantity, i blended out and got a superb flushed cheek, very natural.
Similar (not a close dupe, though) to NARS Amour (that I prefer, as you can control it more)
What I can compain about is the HUGE fallout your get.
So it is NOT a close dupe to Nars quality wise (Nars is WAY better) but if you are not fussy about that, ELFStudio Line is - all in all - a good blush.
Learn the trick sbefore, though!

I just rediscovered this blush in my make up collection. I wore it for the past few days and fell in love all over again. Its amazing! I also noticed that its extremely similar to my Nars blush in Crazed. This would be a great dupe for it. When swatched on the back of my hand they look almost identical. I say for those that are looking for Crazed...or maybe just a back up for it, definitely give this blush a try.

LOVE! This blush is a really nice rosy colour with subtle golden shimmer (not too much). It's very pigmented and blends well. Not too powdery, but I never swirl my brush; I have to just tap b/c the pigment is so intense. I recommend this product.

I only have good things to say about ELF studio blushes. I bought two of these, one in Candid Coral and the other in Blushing Rose.. both these colors come out with just one swipe. (I'm NC 42 for reference). I honestly think the quality of these blushes compare to high end ones like MAC and Nars. They aren't chalky at all and are highly pigmented. I'm planning to buy more. So for those of you who are tight with your budget these days, go ahead and try ELF studio blushes. You won't have anything to be guilty about! =P
