About a week ago I purchased my first e.l.f. blush, just wanting to see how it would hold up against the more expensive blushes like Benefit’s Coralista (a personal fave). I have used it every day since I bought it so I could get a real opinion on it. I changed nothing about my normal routine- no new moisturizers, same foundation, etc. I didn’t want anything to mess with my opinion on it.
e.l.f. Blush vs. Other Blushes
I’ve concluded that the only main difference between e.l.f. and other brands is that e.l.f. rubs off a little easier. It goes on well, and the pigment is good with a few coats. It seemed to stay on a little better throughout the day when I wet my brush before applying it.

Some of the more expensive blushes don’t rub off so easily, which I assume is why they cost more. They are also more pigmented with just one application, but personally it didn’t bother me to put on more than one coat. One downfall of e.l.f. is that there aren’t many color choices (only 3), so only certain skin tones can pull it off.
Do I recommend it?
Definitely worth a try! I mean, it’s only $2.00 so if you don’t like it it isn’t the end of the world. I really like the color (Shy) so I’ll continue to wear it. I really want to try the other colors out as well.
Let me know if you’ve tried it in the comments!
