ELF Healthy Glow Bronzer in Sun Kissed: Swatches & Review
e.l.f brand always had its equal share of hits and misses, nevertheless I am quite intrigued with their collection and new launches because if it is a hit, you will be a proud owner of an awesome product at dirt cheap price and if it is a miss, the price you paid doesn’t really get you in to a regret phase.
The packaging is cute small clear pan with e.l.f logo imprinted, I like the embossed logo on the actual pan. The flip side of the pan looks flimsy blob of glue under the pan with some scattered product.
The “e.l.f healthy glow bronzing powder sun kissed” is a warm champagne gold powder with finely milled shimmer which has satiny finish. It is not powdery to touch but when you swirl your brush in the pan, it picks up more product and when you tap excess it leaves the product in the form of powder in the pan.
The lame first impression which I had for its packaging has completely changed when I saw how beautifully/intensely it is pigmented. I mean it is so perfect to attain that healthy glow it’s like something that looks like it came from within. A little product goes a long way due to its intense pigmentation.
The shade in Sun kissed universally flatters all skin tones and at some point I feel this makes a great highlighter because of its shade selection which doesn’t fetch much to create dimension to the face.
This bronzer is not something which is used to contour or to get the tanned look (like an orangey or browny gold tan), this is just apt to make your overall face glow.
I generally use it over the high points of my face (cheek bones, bridge of nose, chin, temples, browbone and cupids brow), it perfectly added that luminous extra glow and never made me feel too shimmery.
It doesn’t need any frequent touch ups as it lasts all day with no fading and the fine shimmer which imparts glow stays intact without moving all over the face.
Though my initial thoughts towards this product were quite skeptical because it costed dirt cheap and also I had terrible first impression with the packaging, but the pigmentation and staying power and the performance of the product swept me off with whole lot of goodness. When I am paying in peanuts, all I had to care are the results, and this product surpassed my expectations.
