Drugstore Makeup: ELF Putty Blush Review

My feelings are mixed on the wildly popular ELF putty primer. However, I love a good drug store product and I hate spending money on basic makeup. I don't spend my coins on mascara, lip liner, and blush. So, when I saw these $6 blushes I had to give them a try!

Everything you need to know about the pigment and formula

Shade selection

ELF putty blushes are available in eight shades. I picked up three: Fiji, Tahiti, and Caribbean. As with the putty primer, I really like this packaging. It feels sleek and high end, despite the price tag. The swatches on ELF's website are not great. So, I rolled the dice when I selected my shades.

Pigment

The pigment is bomb right out of the pot. However, I did notice some shades showed up better when applied to my skin than others. On my skin, Tahiti has the least amount of pigment, followed by Fiji. Caribbean is the most pigmented.

Formula

While I wasn't a huge fan of the putty primer formula, I absolutely love the blush formula! The creamy texture turns powdery after it's applied to the skin. It doesn't give off the shine you can get from some cream products. In my opinion, that makes this product more versatile. These blushes work well for light makeup days and full glam.

Final Thoughts

All things considered, I'm impressed with this product. I'm already reaching for these blushes often and I'm glad I added them to my collection.
