e.l.f Cosmetics Studio Blush Palette Review – Blushing Beautiful

I am obsessed with blush, and have just about any shade in my collection. When I spotted this e.l.f cosmetics blush on SALE on their site, I knew I just had to have it. I picked the Light palette because it is still Summer in SA and even if it is Winter, do I still enjoy wearing summer blushes. I have a few e.l.f blushes now, and I just love how pigmented they are. This set comes with four shades (none of them named) - a mix between matte and shimmery shades and can be used for highlighting and contouring too. The 4 shades are extremely pigmented (I often find myself using too much blush) and just dipping your brush in is enough to create a beautiful blushing effect.

Apply some lip scrub on your lips and using a soft, baby toothbrush, exfoliate your lips by making circle motions with the toothbrush. Rinse and pucker up by applying your favourite lipstick.
