Company’s Description

Ideal for all skin types, this dual cream bronzer and blush creates a sheer, natural wash of color on the skin. The lightweight cream-to-powder formula provides extended wear and allows you to layer for desired intensity. Sculpt eyes, cheeks, lips, body and anywhere you wish to highlight and contour with the rich cream formula.

One of e.l.f’s newest creations is the Contouring Blush & Bronzing Cream, which has been added to the company’s Studio line. This product contains a cream blush and cream bronzer in one compact and is currently available in the shade pairing St. Lucia.

Packaging: 9/10

This palette comes in a rectangular, black, plastic compact that flips open and contains a full-sized mirror inside. The compact contains two, equally-sized pans that hold the blush and bronzer.

Quality: 9.25/10

Both the blush and bronzer have good pigmentation. The blush is a very neutral, wearable shade of pink mixed with peach and brown tones. The bronzer is a light ochre brown once it’s blended into the skin. It does lean a tad orange, but not so much that it looks like fake tanner. There’s no shimmer in either color, which makes the bronzer great for contouring.

The cream formula is silky and soft to the touch. The products blend nicely over the skin and leave fairly even finishes. The cream dries to a clean finish and doesn’t leave an oily or tacky surface on the skin.

I didn’t have a problem with the colors fading or becoming patchy through the day.

You can also use the blush color on your lips. It’s not super moisturizing but won’t dry the skin out.

This is without a doubt a great, affordable choice when it comes to cream blushes and bronzers.

Ease of Use: 9/10

The colors blend out pretty well, requiring only some buffing and layering to get an even finish. You don’t need to set these colors with powder because the cream dries on the surface of the skin.

Price: 10/10

For just $3.00 you get a total of 0.35 ounces (10 grams) of product. The price can’t be beat for the amount of product you get.

    I need to get this. I have normal/dry skin & my cheeks gets dry patches, so using cream cheek products work best on me. This looks promising.

    Thank you!
