Swatches & my take on e.l.f. Studio Contouring Blush & Bronzing Powder

The blush is a warm peachy pink shade with very minute gold shimmers. It looks extra shimmery in the pan but once applied on the skin, the shimmer is barely noticeable. Texture wise its not soft, Its rather dry and powdery. With a few swipes on, there is enough pigment to make my cheeks look naturally flushed, in a healthy and flattering way. On my skin, E.l.f. blush stays for about 4 hours. 
Bronzer is  dark chocolate brown with tiny gold shimmer but similar to the blush, the shimmer is barely detectable once on the skin. The texture of the bronzer is much softer and applies easily and is easily blendable. The staying power, it lasts on me about 4 hours.

 I use my Sigma large contour brush to apply it.
