E.L.F Blusher: This isn't a makeup review...

I don't do make up reviews, I'm not a beauty blogger and my make up knowledge is limited. However, I had to share this with you. 

Back last year E.L.F opened a store here in Cardiff, just after Christmas I popped into it to buy a few things. Their Tickled Pink blusher was something I'd seen on their website and knew I wanted to try it, it has good reviews with four out of five stars and some women gushing about how much they love it. 

However, when I got it home and used it for the first time I was slighty shocked at the fallout from it. I've taken two photos of it, one before I've used a blush brush to pick up the colour and one after.  


You can see that after maybe two or three uses the case is already messy.


Now, like I said, my makeup knowledge is limited but even I know this isn't right. I typically use NARS blush and there is zero fallout from it. Yes, NARS is much more expensive but after reading the reviews of this blush this wasn't what I was expecting.

This isn't a review but I will say that I wouldn't buy another E.L.F blush again, even though I like how the colour looks on my cheeks and at £3.75 the price is great but I cannot deal with the mess it causes when I use it. I have white bedroom furniture and this goes all over it in the morning.

Am I using it wrong - is there a way of stopping this? Has anyone else experienced this? Let me know if you have any tips!

  1. Hi Cheryl. I am from http://sweetandsourmakeuphour.blogspot.com

    I have used this blush and have it in Pink Passion, Candid Coral, and Peachy Keen. I use a generic retractable kabuki/powder brush and I haven't had that much fallout. I actually really enjoy the blush. I know it's not NARS for sure, and I don't own NARS but have definitely tried it out. What sort of brush are you using? Are you 'digging' for pigment with a stiffer brush perhaps?

    1. Hi Jess, thanks for the tip on the brush. I'm using a regular blush brush with it, perhaps that's where I'm going wrong.
