This beauty of a contouring palette will set you back a whopping $3 – yes, you read that correctly! I am officially crowning this the best budget buy you will ever purchase. Not only does this Elf Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder look like an offering from more of a luxe brand, the pigment and finish is that of a much higher end product also!
I bought the contouring powder in the shade St Lucia which is such a beautiful combination of a peachy pink blush and a warm tanned bronzer which is perfect for contouring – FYI if you have no idea how to contour read my guide here. The colour pay off is amazing – not chalky at all and highly pigmented. For me the blush is a tad too shimmery to wear in the bright Florida sunshine during the day, but at night.. that’s a whole other story! Beautifully shimmery and iridescent, the pink blush will pick up the light perfectly.
The bronzer is very pigmented but if you find you apply too much or it appears too strongly, you can simply take a clean brush and work the colour in to your skin to make it appear totally natural! The palette I have is more suitable for light to medium skin tones, but ladies with darker skin could easily purchase this same palette in the Turks & Caicos shade which would work well.
Please ignore my terrible summer skin break out… truly this is an amazing powder duo and for the price, you simply can’t go wrong! A perfect shade for the warmer months….ladies you need to bag yourself this pronto!
