E.L.F. Studio Blush Collection

Swatches from Left to Right: Pink Passion, Berry Merry, Candid Coral.

Here we have my E.L.F. Studio Blush collection. A while back I decided that I really needed to start using different colour blushes as I was using the same one everyday, and as I use E.L.F. a lot, I knew that the quality of the product would be good, even though the price is cheap (these retail at £3.75 each).

When I first started using them I was surprised at how powdery they were, especially with Berry Merry. I learnt that I needed to be careful with how much I put on my brush, in fact I tend to only need to swipe it once and that's enough.  In the same way, these blushes are VERY pigmented, not so much Candid Coral (as is evident in the swatches), but Pink Passion and Berry Merry can very easily become too much, so a small amount goes a long way. 

I would describe Berry Merry as a dark Plum, with a hint of glitter. Pink Passion is a very bright Pink, which I tend to tone down by using only a small amount which allows a lovely blushing colour. Candid Coral is a VERY subtle Coral, which provides a lovely natural effect. 


My favourite shade is undoubtedly Berry Merry, but I think that that's down to the time of year. It's getting colder and I'm really getting into my plums and darker shades. But I do like Pink Passion when I'm wearing a pink lip. I can't say I've used Candid Coral that much as I don't find that it really shows up on my cheeks that well, I think it may be more of a Summer shade as, I'm not sure about anyone else, I always want to feel like I'm wearing no make up in the Summer. 

Has anyone else tried out E.L.F. blushes? Which is everyone's favourite shade?
Hope everyone is having a lovely day!
