Pink Passion

I love my blushes. I’ve never had a problem with needing to inject colour into my cheeks but for some reason blushes always call to me and I have quite a few now. With my most recent addition being Pink Passion from E.L.F’s Studio line blushes

As you can see it’s an incredibly vibrant almost neon pink in the pan. And it’s a colour I have absolutely nothing like in my collection. I wouldn’t normally go for something like this however because it’s quite cool toned I love how this looks with a tan just on the very apples of my cheeks to add a pretty contrast.
Once swatched it isn’t as scary although its still quite bright it looks a little bit more like a baby doll pink.

I’ve only worn it a handful of times as it’s obviously not one that you can just throw on with anything. As far as the formula goes it’s a little chalky in comparisons to the other two blushes I own from this collection (peachy keen and twinkled pink both of which are gorgeous) But with a colour like this your obviously going to do a fair amount of blending and it does blend seamlessly without leaving a powdery look.

Would I recommend? I would if you’re after a bright colour but don’t want to spend a lot as you won’t be wearing it every day!
Hope this has been helpful!! x

P.SI just want to briefly mention E.L.F have a 3 different collections.

+ The Normal Line where everything is £1.50 ($1)
+ The Studio Line where everything is £3.50 ($3)
+ The Mineral line where things vary from £3 (US prices seem to vary)

I wish I could get away with wearing baby pinks. I tried my friends viva glam gaga today and it looked ridiculous on. Very clownish!
Thanks for the heads up on the bluff dust, I'll probably give it a miss then. Do you suggest anything else for blotchyness? Mine isnt that bad it just doesn't look great next to freckles.

It reminds me so much of this Barbie Volkswagon beetle I had for my barbie when I was little haha, because it was that exact color!
It's very unique :)

Hmmm it seems a little chalky but the color is very pretty!

Nice color...

I have quite a few variety of pinks and I love them...

I think that one of its real advantage is that it blends seamlessly and not powdery, I like that in a blush.

@Ann & Gaby the fact it blends is definately the redeeming feature as once it's blended the chalkiness doesn't matter!

@Cerina I know exactly what you mean - it's definately a barbie pink :)

Thanks for commenting!! x

Pretty colour. I only have the pink fusion (glittery one). This one seems more wearable. I agree with you my ones is a bit chalky(powdery) as well.

@Josie and Beautyshades this is definately a bright colour that I got mainly for a bit of fun I'm not sure I'd ever say this was the most wearable colour though!

@Marie & Pop Champagne it really is that bright barbie pink colour, glad you like the review :)

I love bright blushes! They don't always suit me, but I do have a weak spot for them :P This is a very cute colour and for the price I wouldn't mind trying it out :) xx

sweet color, a bit like NARS angelica? not sure if i can pull this off in the summer, perhaps will have to wait till winter when my tan has faded.
