Review: ELF Studio Blush in Twinkle Pink

This is a review on the ELF haul I did back in January for their Studio Blush in Twinkle Pink. Many people rave about the ELF blush and how it's a dupe for NARS blushes. But for me this was not a winner.

You can see the gold glitter in the color.

Pros
  • The price- it's only $3
  • The packaging
Cons
  • Too much glitter
  • Powder flies everywhere when you apply it
  • Not too much pigmentation
Recommendations
Overall it's not a bad blush but I hate it because I hate glitter. The other annoying thing about this blush is that a lot of powder flies up when you dip your brush in making the application super messy. Also, I can't really get the color to show up on my cheeks.
However, if you like glitter this could be a great choice if you are just starting with makeup.

I always hear about how these blushes are nicely pigmented, is it just me that's getting bad ELF products?

  2. This doesn't look to similar to Orgasm, orgasm is a lot more pigmented and more of a shimmer than a glitter :)

  3. I have several elf blushes and my favorite is Candid Coral in the Studio Blushes. It has a small amount of shimmer and I love the light peachy tone. They do have a ton of fall out when you swirl your brush so I've taken to just patting a couple times.

  10. thanks for sharing! I have been wanting to try elf blushes, but I don't think I'll be reaching for this one! That's too bad about the glitter.

  11. I agree with you on the E.L.F. one having too much glitter :( it's a pity though as it is quite a cute pink and the colour can be packed on to preference.
    I've got that shade as well the 'Candid Coral' (warm coral - must have) and 'Gotta Glow' (highlighting) shades.
    If you were looking for a pink that doesn't have glitter in the E.L.F range, I think 'Tickled Pink' is more of an option but to me, it looks almost similar to the Candid Coral one I have.
    Would rather use that Twinkle Pink mostly in the evenings so the glitter doesn't stand out too much lol.
