Today’s blush is one of my favorites – e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder. It’s yet another dupe for Nars Orgasm.
As much as I say I don’t like pressed products, the convenience of this compact cannot be beat. I took this compact with me on my month-long trip to SE Asia earlier this year, using the blush side on my cheeks, and the bronzer as eye shadow.
It’s got a great big mirror, it cost me $3, it’s slim enough to fit into any purse, and it’s sturdy – did not crack or break after 9 flights, 5 long-haul bus rides, and 2 boat trips. Today I put this blush on with a big kabuki brush for more coverage. I love wearing it with my Eyeko Strawberry Fat Balm – that combo makes me feel young and pretty. What am I going to do when I run of out of my Fat Balm??
I see that this compact is now being called St. Lucia, since e.l.f. has come out with two additional palettes. I’m not particularly interested in those, but for $3 each, maybe I will check them out.
