E.L.F Blush: Candid Coral

Hey adventurers! Today's post is of the ever famous E.L.F blush in the color Candid Coral rumored to be an orgasm by NARS dupe. I do not own Orgasm so I cannot add my thoughts onto that, BUT I can tell you that I like this color. It's a nice coral shade with gold shimmer to it. As you can tell from the photo above it is a little dusty and/or powdery. Unfortunately I couldn't take a picture of it unused for you since I have had this blush for months now.

Above is a very heavy swatch to show the color that you can get out of it. I find that when applying it with my e.l.f complexion brush it's very difficult to get a lot of color. The golden sheen of this blush is amazing. It works as a highlight as well. I wore it alone on my cheeks today and I didn't need a highlight--and I forgot to use one as I was in a rush. I went for a natural look today as well AND I didn't have the time to really get the pigmentation that I wanted out of the blush but it ended up working just fine.

Please ignore the crazy hair. That golden shimmer you see on my face is this blush and I think it looks amazing. This is after my 7 hour shift at work today. I think that the only thing that you can really see thats left is the golden sheen, but it was good and it worked for the look that I was going for today.

So overall this is a very nice blush and I do like it. I do wish it was a little more pigmented though as it took quite a few swipes in the blush and over the face to get this minimal color.

Would I repurchase? Probably.

I'm trying to look for an nice coral blusher to create an "orange" make-up look but I agree with you that this isn't so pigmented. x
