Blush Challenge – e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

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.

You can see where it’s starting to dip into the middle from use!

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.



  1. Hey love, thanks for sending your link over on twitter.
    I really wanna try this, it’s way cheaper than the one from Nars haha.


  2. i have this and i think the blush color looks better than orgasm on me. 😉
    i didn’t know i could use the brown shade on eyelids! that is an awesome idea. i haven’t been using it cause it looks too muddy on my face. thanks!

I'd love to hear from you
