e.l.f. Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder

When this came out locally last year, I thought, "Oh hey, it's that duo people keep talking about at the local AND international forums, the one they say is similar to the NARS Orgasm/Albatross duo!" I don't know how similar it is to that particular NARS product, but I do know that this is a pretty good blush/contour combo for round-faced people like me.

Price: P250.00
Location Bought: Watsons SM Megamall
Approximate Date Bought: mid 2010
Packaging: Since this is from the studio line, the CBBP has the nice not-so-cheap-feeling black plastic packaging, like NARS without the rubberized finish. It's a large compact, with a good-sized mirror.

Color and Pigmentation: Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe the blush in this duo is Peachy Keen, from the same line. Both blush and bronzer have decent pigmentation.

Formulation: The blush and bronzer are both scentless and easy to blend. They last for a reasonable time on me too - half a day. One drawback is the powderiness, however. Messy messy!

In Action: Initially I thought the contour color would be too dark for me, but as you can see below, it's fine. It works perfectly with the blush.

Instant cheekbones yeah baby!!
