Eyes Lips Face (aka “e.l.f.”) currently offers 11 shades in its Studio Blush line. The color in Giddy Gold is reviewed here.
Studio Blushes come in matte, black, plastic compacts with snap-shut lids that have a small, clear window in them to allow you to see the color inside. There is also a thin mirror on the inside of the lid.
Giddy Gold is a medium-strength gold color with strong tangerine orange undertones and finely-milled shimmers. Unlike with Twinkle Pink, the glitters in this color adhere well to the skin, giving a beautiful sheen to the skin.
The color pay-off is average. You’ll need to layer 3-4 times to get the strength of color shown in the photo, below. The formulation is also dusty.
This color would make a good summer highlighter for warm-toned dark skin, but might be too orange for use as a blush or highlighter on lighter skin.
Ease of Use: 8.75/10
Because the color payoff is on the weak side, this blush takes time to layer.
For $3.00, you get 4.75 grams (0.17 ounces) of blush. Even compared to other drugstore-brand blushes, you get a great deal for your money.
