Eyes Lips Face (aka “e.l.f.”) currently offers 11 shades in its Studio Blush line. The color in Twinkle Pink 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.
Twinkle Pink is a bright, blue-based bubblegum pink with fairly large silver glitters. The glitters don’t adhere very well to the skin. Some of them will stay put to give the blush a sparkle, but many of them will fall off from the skin.
The formulation is very slightly powdery. The pigmentation and color payoff is strong. You will get a bright effect on the cheeks without using much product.
The staying power of this blush is also good. It’s not extra long-wearing like Tarte’s Amazonian Clay Blushes, but lasts throughout the day for normal wear–at least 6 hours before fading.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
Because the formula isn’t too powdery and the pigmentation is strong, you can pick up this color with a fluffy brush and apply without having to build up the color in layers.
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.
