e.l.f Blushes reloaded - Review & Swatches + Dupes for NARS blushes Orgasm and Super Orgasm



Hi all my lovely readers!!

So, i decided to create updates of some of my "most-clicked-posts-ever", simply because i have a better camera now, more of the products maybe and simply feel like doing it :D


I've already created a new Wet n Wild Megalast Lipcolor post - which you totally go check out *click*

A while ago i published 2 different posts about the e.l.f blushes, which i were (still am) simply amazed with!

I decided to update this post because i wanted to have all the blushes in 1 big post, i purchased one more & i finally got me some NARS blushes i can compare them with! 

Below you will find photos & swatches of the e.l.f blushes

twinkle pink, candid coral, peachy keen, tickled pink, mellow mauve, blushing rose & fushia fusion

these are mainly blushes for a bright to medium skintone.


Let's start:







Super buttery texture, chunky, golden glitter pieces



Buttery dry texture with intense golden shimmer



Buttery dry texture with a light warm shimmer




Buttery texture, pearly shine, almost matte



Buttery dry texture with a golden shimmer



Super buttery texture, intense blueish/purple shimmer



Dry texture with chunky golden & silver glitter









How they look applied....








e.l.f twinkle pink compared to NARS Orgasm & Super Orgasm




e.l.f blushing rose compared to NARS Oasis




e.l.f mellow mauve & blushing rose compared to NARS Sin






As you can see, the only good dupe i could find within my collection is twinkle pink. My first thought was that candid coral is a dupe, which is not true
I also heard NARS Angelika & elf fushia fusion look pretty much the same!


As for the blushes themselves - the staying power of the elf blushes is of course not as good as the staying power of the NARS
I would say that you can count on the elf blushes to stay in your face for around 4 hours - My Nars blushes stayed on all day...
you can purchase them online at Target.com 
*click here*
or on the elf website 
*click here*


But, you can purchase an elf blush for $3, when they have special offers, for as less as $1.50, which is absolutely not to top!

For a NARS blush you pay $27 - what is pretty darn much for one blush, BUT, ever since i bought my first  - i needed to get more. They are totally worth their price and so unbelievable gorgeous & unique!!



Alright, what a long post again! I hope you will find this helpful to find the right product for you!

Happy Weekend

  6. awesome review. I have the Elf contouring blush duo and love the pigmentation. But totally agree with you, the staying power is not as long as the NARS ones.

  16. vielen dank für deinen besuch <3
    die elf blushes sind der hammer! ich finde einzig den fuchsia einbisschen too much, also sehr stark pigmentiert. den orgasm von nars sieht man überall - eine sehr schöne farbe:)
    hab ein schönes wochenende xx
