So I recently got a mini elf haul, I ordered a few things alog with my mom and sister. I ordered my first ELF Studio cream blush in Tease. Let me just say, ELF impresses me more and more daily. There has yet to be a product from them that I have hated (and I own quite alot of elf). I wanted to wear the blush before I did a review on it. So yesterday I decided I would try it out. I used my stipple brush first as I have heard that being a good way to apply it. I only did a light coat with the brush when I decided I wanted to apply with my fingers for more of a controlled application. I couldn't decided if I should set it with a powder blush or a translucent powder so I ended up using both. I will probably be sticking to using the Elf studio translucent powder as I dont like the idea of covering it with another color.
Also the only downfall to me is the size. As u can see in the picture compared to the cream eye shadow its HUGE. I wouldn't carry in around in my purse or anything as its too bulky. But you do get alot of product.
Its not like cream at all, its more towards a mousse feel and ends with a smooth powder finish. I was wearing for about 11 hours before I washed my face and I could still see the color on my cheeks. Tease is a very nice light rose/pink natural color, I would imagine looking nice on almost anyone. I couldn't choose between Heart Breaker or Tease, but I did some research and decided Heart Breaker was a bit brighter pink and wanted to go for something a bit different. After trying one of these blushes tho, I will definitely be purchasing Heart Breaker on my next haul :)
Do any of you use cream blush regularly? Let me know if you have tried any that are a must have!

Hey ladies! Sorry I was gone for so long! I went on a mini vaca with my boyfriend to North Carolina for Halloween! But now I back :) I hope you all had an amazing and safe halloween!
*The first brush is the Blusher Brush-" Sweep blush onto the apples of cheeks for a natural-looking flush."
I love this brush. The handle on the brush is amazing and so easy to hold and work with, and its super soft. I see myself using this brush for almost everything; from powder foundation, blush, bronzer, highlighter and booster.
*The second brush is the Large Domed eye shadow brush- "Finishes and beautifully blends; perfect for contouring. Don't be afraid to use powder for touch-ups on face." Again, Love this brush and the handle. Its very dense and probably the biggest eye shadow brush I own. I can see myself using it for my all over color, blending, and even adding highlight to my cheek bones.
*The third brush is the Small Eye Shadow brush- "A great brush that applies and blends." This brushes bristles are a little bit more sturdy. I will be using this brush for the highlighting under my brow and maybe in my crease. I will probably be using this for alot more things once I get the chance to use it!
