Some things are hits, and others are not. This blush and highlighter combo is available at Walmart for $4. I love ELF, and the company makes amazing brushes, setting sprays, primers, eye palettes. So, I figured this little beauty would fit right in with my ELF collection. The blush is beautiful and the highlighter glowy. In the pan. Finger swatch was unimpressive, and honestly, I couldn’t get the pigment levels up to a level that I would consider acceptable. No matter how hard I tried, the color never seemed to materialize on my skin. I like to glow, and this didn’t give me that GLOW. If you are looking for a super subtle, barely there almost wash of color, then this may be the product for you.
I love that ELF is a vegan and cruelty-free company and I look forward to trying more of their products in the future.
