I decided to route through my hardly used box of makeup. I am so glad that I did. It felt like I was shopping.
I stumbled upon my e.l.f. Natural Radiance Blusher collection.
These gems are very affordable for $1 each.
I purchased all the colors except for INNOCENCE which I thought would not show up on my MAC NC50 skintone. The lighter colors could easily be used for highlight or stacked over a darker blush.
These blushes give a subtle hint of color. Some are more pigmented than others.
When used with a cream base, I find they will last all day on me. The texture can be powdery. I like the convenience of the small packaging.

COY mauve with shimmer
FLUSHED bubble gum pink with shimmer
SHY soft matte baby pink
GLOW soft pinky - coral with micro fine shimmer
BRONZED gold with shimmer
I love them all.
I give these 4 out of 5 stars. Why 4? Used alone, these blushes do not have staying power. When stacked over a cream blush base, and set with translucent powder. For me, they work just fine. The powdery texture may be off putting to some. This could get pretty messy if you are not careful.
