Happy Cyber Monday!! I hope ya’ll also had a fabulous turkey day…I was full for a few days after mine- LOL!! J Now let me get to the good stuff…
Items that are battling it out:
|L: NARS R: E.L.F.|
As you can see the packaging is very similar; both are sleek, black and compact. They also both have a mirror included on the inside, for quick on the go makeup application. The one thing I really like about e.l.f.’s packaging is that it isn’t rubber like the NARS…so it doesn’t keep your fingerprints, etc. on it! I hate that about NARS packaging, because your product looks like you’ve had it forever even after one day due to all the fingerprint marks!! That’s one of my biggest pet peeves :P
RESULTS: Personally, I feel they are 2 completely different products, that don’t really mimic each other. The e.l.f. is more pigmented and matte and may be a better match for women who are of a bit darker skin tone. While the NARS is a little less pigmented (as seen in the pics) and full of shimmer and sheen, it would work on many skin tones. However, if you have lighter skin, you may want to opt for this one. So if you don’t have the $39 to spend on the NARS, go ahead and give the e.l.f. blush/bronzer duo a try first…and for $3 you just can’t go wrong!!
All the swatch pics are HEAVILY swatched on NC 37 skin. I am in no way affliated or being compensated in any way to review these products.
