I’ve always loved the idea of a blush and bronzer duo. elf’s St. Lucia contouring blush and bronzing cream is supposed to create a healthy and natural glow all year long. The blush highlights the cheeks to add a flush of color, while the bronzer accents and contours cheekbones for beautiful definition. This convenient compact has just what you need to achieve a gorgeous glow anytime, anywhere.
This palette comes in a matte black plastic compact much like their studio blushes. Inside you will find a decent sized mirror. The compact has two pans that hold the cream blush and bronzer. The palette feels nice and sturdy and doesn’t feel cheap at all.
Both the blush and the bronzer are nicely pigmented. I personally don’t like blushes and bronzers that are too pigmented, I much prefer a lighter application at least to start off with. The blush is very neutral and I would imagine it complimenting a wide range of skin tones. The blush is a light pink with peachy brown undertones. The bronzer is a light brown once it’s blended. It does run a tad bit orange so that’s a bit disappointing. Neither the blush or the bronzer contain any shimmer because of that you could use the bronzer as a contour shade. I personally like to mix both the bronzer and the blush together and apply it to the apples of my cheeks.
The cream formula makes this an ideal product for dry skin beauties. It feels silky on the skin and non drying. It dries to a smooth finish and doesn’t feel oily or tacky on the skin. Both shades blend out pretty easily, I like to use an angled brush to apply it and I usually blend it out with a beauty blender. Setting this product is not needed since they set pretty nicely on their own.
