ELF Studio Blush Blushing Rose Review

ELF Studio Blush Blushing Rose

Hello Ladies,

Hope you all are having/had a rocking day. Today, I am going to review one of the very famous ELF products. Its none other than “ELF Studio Blush” in shade “Blushing Rose.” They are loved by most makeup lovers around the world for how well they perform for such an affordable price.

ELF Blush

From ELF:

The soft sheer texture blends into the skin for a silky finish. Designed to be worn alone or layered for more depth. Highlight your complexion with a subtle healthy glow.


3$ for 4.75 gm.

ELF studio Blushes are available in 11 shades now. As usual, the swatches on the website are nowhere near the actual shade. I searched for the swatches on the internet before buying it online.


Talc, Mica, Nylon-12, Magnesium Stearate, Silica, Paraffinium Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Polybutene, Sodium Dehydroacetate.

Refer the picture below for “May contain” list of ingredients.

My Take on ELF Studio Blush in “Blushing Rose”:


The “Blushing rose” is a very pretty Dusky Rose shade with subtle gold shimmer in it. For day time, I just use one swipe of it and it looks nice and natural. For the evening look, I would like to build a little more intensity. I’m NC42 and it looks nice on my skin tone. I’m sure it will look equally good on lighter skin tone (used with lighter hand) and duskier skin tone. In the picture, I have applied it a bit more for the camera to pick up the color.

ELF blush packaging


It is not powdery and goes on smooth and it blends very well on to the skin and it does not get streaky.

I wouldn’t call it as a highly-pigmented Blush. When compared to some other ELF Studio blushes, it has very good pigmentation and is buildable.

Staying Power:

On top of moisturizer + compact powder, it stays for about 3-4 hours. Staying time can be improved further with the use of a primer.

:yes: Gives a nice glow to the cheeks.

:no: Availability in India is an issue (I’m sick of typing this, ELF can you hear us :announce: ).
:no: Online Swatches does not show the actual shade.
:no: Contains some chemicals that may be harmful to skin.

Overall Verdict:

This is one of the favorite ELF studio blushes I own and I find myself reaching for this one more. This is a very pretty shade and the golden shimmer is very fine and is not over the top at all. If you want to try ELF studio blushes, then don’t miss this one :yes:
