E.L.F. Studio Blush Palette Review & Swatches

E.L.F. Studio Blush Palettes

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!

This or That Beauty With the New Up & Up Precision Blender Cosmetic Sponge

Up Up Precision Blender Cosmetic Sponge

The Elizabeth Arden Foundation Blender Brush is treated like my first born child. I love this thing. Yeah, so, it’s a sponge with a handle but dude, dude….it works wonders. I use this nifty little dodad to swipe and blend out foundation, contour under my eyes and blend conceal to an airbrushed finish, and heck I even have an extra one that I use to apply serums and moisturizers! It’s that handy! And the $15 price tag makes it a total buy and a half.

But…

Budget friendly babes might like the even cheaper Target Up & Up Precision Blender Cosmetic Sponge at a mere $4.99 quarter the price of Elizabeth Arden’s version and gives you enough left over change to buy two more or perhaps just save that extra $10 bucks and buy some Cadbury Easter Eggs on the way to check out.
