E.L.F Studio Blush Review - Mellow Mauve

What it is:
The soft sheer texture blends into the skin for a silky finish. Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth. Highlight your complexion with a subtle healthy glow!

sorry i couldnt find my camera cable so i am stuck with phone's camera hence crappy pics.

 The packaging of the blushes are similar to that of NARS blushes.Mellow Mauve blush is a mauve with brown undertones, not really true to name. The colour is a cool toned berry colour.

 The color payoff isn't bad, but it's not overly pigmented. In fact i was bit disappointed when i swatched this blush , i had high hopes for this product. Mellow Mauve also looks pretty in the pan but when swatched, brush barely picks up any color. 

Below swatches are good 3 swipes , you can get the idea what i am talking about  regarding pigmentation

Maybe i will use some othet brush. I was using elf lush brush before I need a couple of strokes on my brush before getting any color payoff. 

This is the only con i have for this product.Maybe it could a pro for some who prefers a sheer blush.
What i liked in ELF blushes is that how subtle the shimmers are in them.Texture wise , ELF blushes have a silky smooth feel and blend easily onto skin.

ELF blushes are affordable and Anyone looking for a nice, subtle blush , this would be a great addition to your collection.

You can buy this from
for $ 3, do watch out for frequent promotions and discount codes.

Do you own any ELF studio blush? any favourites?

  1. Candid Coral and Mellow Mauves are my 2 favorite blushes from the studio line! :) Maybe try applying it with something like the MAC 109 that picks up a lot of product? :)

  2. Nice subtle shade Sarah..Post a pic of yours with this blush no..
