Okay so this brand orignally comes from the very famous Elle Magazine.this brand is from France . I did put up a post on Instagram recently of this blush shade #3Brown Rose that I got of this brand and it’s so amazing. So let’s just start up with review. I landed up in splash fashions end December 2015 to upgrade my wardrobe and it was the end season sale that also caught my attention.I did realize I am missing out on a concealer that I needed urgently.so therefore I landed to Elle cosmetics Retail shelf.By the way splash fashions is the only place in UAE where I have seen Elle Cosmetics.i don’t know any other place where you can avail this.
To begin with their concealers comes in 4 shades. #1 being the lightest #4 being the last shade. I wouldn’t call it any darkest because it’s medium Toned for pink and yellow undertones.Same goes with their foundation and BB cream. My shade is #1 for concealers, foundation and BBcream.
I tried their BB cream it’s has a good coverage but since I already use some other brand I didn’t really pick it up for my daily use. Although I did take the concealer and it’s great.Its like a marker pen ,you just press and it releases.Tip of it has a nice applicator brush. Its anti dark circle and apt for highlighting and brightening. The emergency purchase was worth it.
Their blush comes in 4 shades again as follows:
#1 is a soft light pink
#2 is a more pigmented Rosy pink darker than the first one
#3 is a Rose brown shade which is my favorite one and it’s called Rose boudoir (3)
#4 is a coral peach shade
I love the packaging of their blush. They’re rightly pigmented and a good square sized.the shade #3 is good Rose brown color I use it on my cheeks as a blush and at times at cheeks bones to give a light contouring and my face actually looks slimmer as it would after a contour.so it has a twin usage. I am definitely going buy the blush again.All the blushes show up amazingly on a fair skin.
To be honest I didn’t really open the Blushes until last week and just in case you’re thinking I opened them because it was Valentine’s Day. No I just had a family get together back to back all the week days.I was stunned when I realized I could use this brown shade as 2in 1 blush and light contouring powder.It suits my skin and looks amazing. I remember I got a some what similar shade from Bourjois Paris as well but didn’t really get to buy it again.
Now they haven’t Really titled any of their shades they’re just simply called 1,2,3,4,. All over the retail stores.What I mentioned above are my own way of describing them. And it’s also based on the way they were arranged at the retail shelf.Also I came to know that these have French names if you look at their product titles. Which isn’t easy for everyone to refer. Which is why they just refer. 1,2,34.also I came to know that they might have more shades of blush at other retail stores in different country for example in the US , I don’t know how far it’s true. I just saw four of them
To talk about their product features in detail, packaging of all their products is simply superb.Be it foundation,BBcream, concealers or blush. You can definitely travel with them.the only thing I am just wondering is why they don’t have much for different skin types.their products dont meet the types of other Asian skin. So if you’re buying their foundation, BBcream or concealers there are chances you might not find you right shade.
So here Elle has a lot as well primer , BB cream, foundation, concealer , blushes ,eyeliners, metallic eye shadows, Mascara ,red lip color, nail paints.Its a brand from France.these all are the products belonging to their collection by far.I love their blushes more out of their entire collection.the concealer also does a fair job.If you’re looking for something new then go ahead give it a try. But if you’re a little strict with your Cosmo budget then you must wait for a sale.
Until next time
