Review: Elf Blushes and Revlon Super Lustrous Matte Lipsticks

Happy Monday Lovelies!

I ended up finding a few of the things I wanted this weekend. I didn't make it to the mall so the MAC and BUTTER London items will have to wait.

But...I did get my hands on the ELF Blush in Candid Coral, so gorgeous. It is a very peachy, golden shade but very subtle. I would describe this as buildable, a very pretty, flattering shade and good quality.

Next I purchased the ELF Blushing Bronzer Duo. I've heard that this is supposed to be a close dupe to the NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo. I wouldn't go that far. The bronzer does have some shimmer to it, so it's not a completely matte bronzer and it's a little bit more yellow toned than laguna. It actually looks kind of an odd color in the pan, but if used with a light hand it's a nice bronzer. The blush is actually pretty close to Orgasm. It's got the right pinky peachy undertones, golden shimmer and some larger flecks of sparkle (I wouldn't call it glitter, but larger than shimmer). Overall, the effect is very similar and for the price ($3), you can't go wrong. If you like the look of Orgasm/Laguna but can't afford the price, this is a VERY good alternative. Packaged nicely and good quality. Looks lighter in the photo than it actually is.

Lastly, I found the Revlon Super Lustrous Matte lipsticks I was on the hunt for. I thought they would be in their own section of the lipsticks, but they are just mixed in with the other Revlon lipsticks. You have to look for the matte black tube or the matte on the label to find them. I got Stormy Pink and Sky Pink. Stormy Pink is a lovely mix of fuchsia and hot pink, a little more purple toned than red. Sky Pink is a straight up baby pink. It's so pretty in the tube, but not my favorite on. I think the light shade mixed with the matte finish made Sky Pink look too "fake" on my lips. I really love Stormy Pink though, I think this will be a fun spring/summer lipstick. I'm wearing it here.
