Hi All,

This was part of my Diwali haul last year mentioned here. I am still amazed how my friend happened to get so many great goodies…Any other guy would’ve said a big no right away πŸ˜‰ The reason why I asked him to get this was because this I ssaid to be the closest dupe of the Nars O Blush. Now I don’t really have the Nars blush, but I’ve compared swatches online and this truly is a really close dupe. πŸ™‚

My take on the ELF Studio Blush in Candid Coral:

  • Packaging: The blush comes in a black, plastic square pan like the Nars blush pans except that this has a clear panel in the front which makes it easy to identify the shade in my drawer.

  • Color: Candid Coral  is a peachy gold very much like the Nars O. The sme sheeny-shimmer, the exact same tinge of peach…this blush has it all.

  • Texture & Pigmentation: The blush is pigmented nd thankfully has next to nil fallout. Pigmentation is intense and just a dip into the pan is sufficient for me.

  • Staying Power: This stays for about 6hrs on me on an average. The sheen tends to dull down after 4hrs but the peachy tint still remains which I love.

I’ll be honest..I never liked Nars O blush. I like actually color on my cheeks as opposed to  shimmer and shine. But since everyone was raving so much about the shade I decide to get a more affordable dupe so that it wouldn’t pinch me too much if I didn’t like it. But surprisingly I do like this. I like it for that subtle glow and it really brightens up the face without making me look too golden or overly bright. Would you like to use this blush?
