Fans of E.L.F. Studio Blush will be quite happy about the launch of the new E.L.F. Studio Blush Palette that’s available in two shades for $6 each.
I actually really like the Studio Blush Collection. They are quite nice budget pick ups if you’re a bit of a blush h0r! These new blush quads feature four shades of E.L.F. Studio Blush in a single compact. If you look close enough they might just remind you of Bobbi Brown’s Custom Palettes.
Take a look!
At the risk of being a kill joy I’m not a massive fan of the new E.L.F. Studio Blush Palettes.
These come in a sectional compact which features a generously sized mirror and four blushes. Each blush can be popped in and out of the compact but at this point that feature is useless. E.L.F. offers these in two shade selections so if you’re maybe mixing and matching shades from the two quads it might be relevant to have the option to pop each blush in and out of the quad. However, E.L.F. doesn’t have blushes or eyeshadows for sale currently so having a quad of pop out blushes isn’t really going to do you very good unless maybe you’re wanting to pop these easily out and into some sort of Z-Palette. Perhaps in the future E.L.F. will have more custom palettes…perhaps they’ll sell them empty and give you the option to fill them but as of now this style packaging isn’t really necessary and almost pointless really.
These pop out sorta kinda easily. I find it depends on the shade. Some popped out easily and popped right back in just as easily. Others I struggled to get out and to even pop back in so the packaging is slightly faulty. I also ended up breaking two blushes while doing this. Apparently the blushes are very delicate!
There’s a Light and a Dark option here both both palettes have fairly dark pigmented blushes in the mix so lighter skin might be slightly scared of such bolder shades. Many of the colors are quite warm and will look incredible on deeper skin tones as they are quite pigmented. I didn’t really compare the shades in these quads to colors I own but I will say none of them look like dupes for ones I already have. Colors aren’t individually named unfortunately so you can only reference them as the Light Quad or the Dark Quad. I’m also unsure the size of each blush as E.L.F. didn’t list it on the compact or the outer box packaging.

I thought the formula wasn’t as lovely as the regular Studio Blushes. These are a bit chalky in some cases, powdery in others, and aren’t as smooth and silky as the original formula. They also blend rather harshly so I end up with ruddy and clown-y cheeks with some of the dark shades. You do get a mix of matte and shimmer finishes but neither finish is very favorable.
Overall, it’s a nice option to have four E.L.F. Studio Blushes in one spot! It’s great for traveling with or hey, just because you love blush! But if I were you I’d save my $6 and just grab some of the single shades for $3 each as they have the superior formula in my opinion.
