My Experience with E.L.F. Studio Pinktastic Baked Blush Review:
The blush comes covered in a cardboard box and is actually in a plastic case with a transparent lid. The name of the shade is written on the case. I do not trust the packaging though. For all I know if I am not careful and the blush falls, it just might break along with my heart into pieces.

The pigmentation is awesome! One swipe is more than enough, at times. This shade does not work as a blush though, so I use it as a highlighter 😛 I bought it for the reason that it has a beautiful pink tinge, even though the name is ‘pinktastic’, the blush is more of a gold finish in colour. I have no complaints because I knew, what I was calling for and what I was going to get.

The staying power is good. This particular shade works best as highlighter and so I apply it around my eyebrows, on my cheekbones and cupid’s bow for a flawless look.

When felt, the blush is a little rough but while application on the face, it is fine and smooth 🙂 It is a combination of gold and pink which equals to rose gold.

Pros of E.L.F. Studio Pinktastic Baked Blush:
- Amazing pigmentation.
- A little goes a long way.
- Beautiful colour pay-off.
- Micro-shimmer is present.
- Works great as a highlighter.
- Good staying power.
- Will suit all skin tones and colours.
Cons of E.L.F. Studio Pinktastic Baked Blush:
- Too shimmery and low pigmentation for a blush.
- Uncertain availability in India.
Firstly, it does not act like a blush at all! The pigmentation and the shimmer just do not let it. The colour is a beautiful gold with pink undertones, hence the name. I use this product only as a highlighter and I am impressed with it. I was actually going to go for one from the highlighter range but preferred to go with this one and I am glad I did. A little goes a long way and it is a pretty good product especially at this price. If you feel the review is convincing enough, go on and get it 😀
Would I Recommend E.L.F. Studio Pinktastic Baked Blush?
