Did I get a bad one?
This is wrong for me. I am very pale and the bronzer is just too dark for me. The blush is too light and almost does not show up on my skin, So to me this is a strange combo. It makes me think that I may have gotten a bad one. Seeing how pigmented the blush looks on other swatches I have seen.
Both powders are shimmery, so keep that in mind if you don't like shimmer.
I think the colours are absolutely gorgeous, they just do not work for my skintone.
good for the price
$3 for a blush and bronzer in beautiful packaging with a decent sized mirror. You really cannot beat that. I would not say this is a dupe for anything like nar's laguna and orgasm duo because it's just not. It may look like it but it's not. The bronzer in here is nice because you can almost use it as a contour (but don't try contouring tooooo much with this) but more as a bronzer. Why? because it has shimmer in it and it's 50/50 shimmer and the powder product so you will look shimmery instead of glowy like how the laguna nars bronzer leaves your skin looking like. the blush in here I like, but I dont' find it to be peachy at all. It's a light pink with a lot of shimmer so you can pass using it as a highlight if you'd like.
They are both a tad shimmery. I did not see this when ordering from the e.l.f website. Nonetheless, it is still an alright blush/bronzer duo.
The blush is a light pink color that does well when applied to your cheeks. No complaint there really. But if you do have dry skin on your cheeks (like me) I would not recommend this because it does cling to those dry patches.
The bronzer is a bit darker than the photo would make you think. It is mostly suited for darker skintones, but I think if you blend it well enough with a kabuki brush it would work for people a bit lighter. Again like the blush, it does cling to dry patches.
I haven't used the NARS Laguana/Orgasm duo like other people here have, but I will check that out.
I love that this product is only $3 and comes with a bronzer and blush but the shades don't suit me the best. The bronzer is a bit dark but luckily doesn't have any shimmer. Then the blush is a bit of a coral color but has shimmer and it also is a bit chalky. But lastly, the mirror isn't attached so well, so it keeps falling out of the casing.
I love this product for the reason that it almost a dupe for NARS laguana/orgasm. But like I said, almost. The laguana is a golden bronzer while this is more mudd brown. It's a very good bronzer for those with a darker or tanner skin tone (a.k.a. me) and the blush is perfect for my skin tone. That might just be because I have a very weird skin color. But I love this for the spring through fall time period but for the winter, I am going to be needing bronzer that isn't as muddy brown as this one. Sobbing the fact that it is $3 and I can use it three out of the four seasons, I love it.
I like this product! This was great for the price! The blush is quite light and probably better for fair skin tones. The bronzer on the other hand, is better for tan/deep tones. They are both great products but should have more color options. Like ones for lighter, medium, and dark skin tones. Also, they both have shimmer. The shimmer is not overally shimmery. It's perfect for both sides of the product. Overall, I loved this product and especially for the price!
A must have
This contouring powder is my absolute favorite one out there. I can't rave about this product enough. I am fair to medium and with a light hand and a good brush this looks beautiful. I hit pan and freaked out cause I thought I was going to run out like the next day and I bought a back up. The blush gives a slight flush with a highlight type glow to the cheeks. Super pigmented and a very affordable dupe to NARS Orgasm and Laguna
Love During First Use
I love the slight shimmer it has to it, and I love that it adds a little extra to my skin tone. For me, it evens out my skin tone a bit because of the yellow undertones I have, but I also love the blush; I don't have to worry about it looking like I put on blush because it looks so natural. I have been using this everyday since I got it and I know it's going to last a lot. Usually when a product is this cheap, people don't trust it, but e.l.f. is a good line and I think everyone should try their products before wasting money on high end products that create the same look.
