E.l.f Studio Blush in 'Tickled Pink' [Review]

Dear readers,

A couple of months ago I ordered some item from Elf - they had some kind of offer going on ... and I thought why not?

I got the E.l.f Studio Blush because I'd heard so many great things from the beauty world about this line of blushers. I chose the shade 'Tickled Pink' since I wanted a 'natural' looking blush.

This cost me £3.75.

Packaging is ok - I actually quite like it. It is compact, sturdy and has a mirror inside.

I was very looking forward to try this blusher out, but when I swatched it for the first time I was completely and utterly disappointed.

The shade is a very light, peachy shade. It is not powdery, but it is not too pigmented either. To me this shade looks more like a highlighting shade than an actual blusher. It does not show on my olive skin tone - this would work best for really pale skin.

You have to really build this up since it is so sheer - and to be honest I'm not really bothered most of the time.

This blusher has found its place at the back of my drawer, never to see the light of day again.

Have you ever tried any blushes from this line? Are they any good, or is it just this shade (or me)?

how light it is >.<
Much love,



  1. I really like the look of this Hun, light and subtle x

  2. It definitely looks more like a highlighter than a blush, but I still like the shade.

    I often build up my blush because I like it to stand out a little, so this kind of sheerness is good for me since it means I don't have to be super careful about overdoing my blush and can just build up gradually.

    1. yeah, it is rather buildable. At the moment I have an ongoing love affair with tints though :)

  3. I think it's just that shade. Most people like myself prefer subtle blushes, they're easier to build up. Very rookie-proof :)

  4. I have a few of their blushes and I like them. But my skin is quite pale, so maybe that's the reason they work for me :)

    1. This would look gorgeous on pale skin. I must try out some of their other shades from this line. I also have their HD cream blush which is so pigmented - you have to be really careful when applying it.
