being the beauty and shopping obsessive that i am, i couldn't not make an order in the recent E.L.F 50% off sale, and today i'm sharing something from that somewhat mini haul.
as much as i wish i could, i just can't bring myself to pay NARS prices, so i decided to pick up the Contouring Blush and Bronzer in St Lucia - a pretty well known dupe for the NARS Laguna Bronzer and Orgasm Blush duo. quality-wise, i obviously can't compare, but these seem pretty spot on for a colour match in my opinion. the blush is a gorgeous warm-toned, peachy pink with a slight shimmer (also a very good dupe for the Sleek Rose Gold blush, just not quite as pigmented and bright), and the bronzer is the perfect tan contouring shade. unfortunately the bronzer is far too dark to use on my pasty skin, but i've hauled the fake tan back out recently and this works fab with more tanned skin. for powder based products, they're not at all chalky and blend in really nicely, so you won't be left with harsh lines from contouring, and both products are really buildable for more colour so can work for a subtle everyday look, or be glammed up for the evening. this is also so handy for travelling as i don't need to cart around two seperate products, plus it has a huge mirror, too! for just £3.95 and a choice of three shades, popping this in my shopping basket whilst it had a further 50% off was a no-brainer.
i'll be sharing a couple more bits from my E.L.F haul soon, but would love to know if you guys recommend anything in particlar from them that I can snap up when they next have a sale?
