E.l.f's Baked Blush in Pinktastic!

Hey Adventurers! As promised August is E.l.f month and to kick it off, I'm doing a review on E.l.f's new baked blush in the shade Pinktastic. As you can tell from the photo above, it is a champagne color with pink swirls in it. It works best as a highlight and it is an absolutely gorgeous highlight. I'm going to be comparing this product next to theBalm's highlight sometime next week--get excited for that!-- cause they are both very beautiful and there is the extremely big price difference and I think that they exact almost exactly the same. Anyways. Enough about that--that'll be next week!

Now this swatch really does not do it justice, it comes off chalky in the swatch, but it's a very smooth shade when you get it on your face. I find that this was just too heavy of a swatch from it. This color is absolutely gorgeous! It's shimmery but not glittery and I find that it highlights just the right amount. I am absolutely in love with this product and for only $1.50--using the 50% off studio coupon code.

The packaging is cheap and the lid on this one actually got loose some how, it's just a plastic dome onto of the product. With black plastic on the bottom. and it's actually a lot of product for what you pay. They one down fall in my opinion is the packaging but you can't expect extravagant packaging for the price that you do pay. I personally just love this product and I'd repurchase it all day.



Were you thinking about picking this up? What other products are you interested in seeing reviewed?

Lovely review! I really want to try the ELF baked blushes, but unfortunately they're not available in the Australia online store - which is such a shame!

Stop by and check out my blog :)

Yeah, E.l.f products are so worth the little money you shed out. It's amazing.

It is! Later on when I compare TheBalm's to this one you'll see it on the cheeks!
