ELF Studio Blush in Peachykeen: Review, Swatches

Hi All,

I love ELF products..They have such a huge variety of makeup and so affordable. After a whole of cribbing about its availability in India, Stylecraze finally stocked some items from this brand some time back. Like a lot of you I was also really overjoyed and bought a lot of goodies in a frenzy. Some stuff turned out really nice whereas some were not as impressive. Today I’ll be reviewing a blush from the studio line which didn’t quite live up to its hype. The name was snapped up from MAC which also has a blush by the same name. I somehow hoped this would be a cheaper dupe and picked it up…and boy! Was I wrong!

My take on the ELF Studio Blush in Peachykeen :

  • Packaging: The blush comes in a black, plastic square pan like NARS but with a clear panel in the front which makes it easy to identify the shade.
  • Color: Peachykeen is a beigey gold with a hint of peach. It does have tiny shimmers which are really not too visible..Actually, the blush itself isn’t that visible on my skin. I expected a lot more peach!

  • Texture & Pigmentation: The blush isn’t too pigmented although the texture is quite nice and soft. Fallout is negligible and isn’t chalky at all.
  • Staying Power: This isn’t too visible on me. It almost matches my skin tone and is just a hint more peachy. Within an hour I can’t really see it on my skin.ELF Studio Blush in Peachykeen review+ elf studio blush

Disappointment is the word which springs to mind when I see this blush. I think I should have researched some more instead of being taken in by the name solely.     I never have much of a problem even with blush which don’t stay long since I then use them when I’m going for a short outing. But what does one do when the blush is hardly visible?

So I try and use this when I don’t want to use heavy makeup and just want a bit of shine on my cheeks. A part of me thinks that deeper skintones may like this best  since it would show up and give the skin a pretty glow. For me though it’s a definite miss.

    • i so agree…some of their stuff is to die for…thats wot makes it so disappointing when we see such sudden duds….no fair dimps!!

  1. I wonder if it will work as a highlighter ?:-) or even as blush with some smokey eyes and nude lips 😛 for a subtle glow, will it show up??

    • i think shale, with this blush it solely based on skin tone…on my skintone it was not visible…but maybe on a slightly tanned skin this wud pop out beautifully..
