My ELF Studio Prize

I have to admit I am feeling absolutely dreadful today, and for once I don't think its anything to do with my ME. It feels like I have given in to some evil bug - yuck. Anyways as I told you yesterday I won a prize from the new ELF studio line on twitter, well it came this morning and I've managed to drag myself out of bed to give it a try - well you would wouldn't you ;)

The product I asked for was the Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder :)which according to many is a dupe for NARS Orgasm and Laguna Duo.

Packaging first it came boxed

and it first glance the packaging and layout does seem very NARS esq the only difference is the NARS packaging is rubbery where is the ELF is more plastic
The product itself looks exactly like the NARS duo in its layout and the compact contains a large mirror which I love
Swatches - the bronzer especially looks quite scary here and quite pigmented but it seems to blend down quite well with a nice smooth texture
I can't compare it to Laguna so I'll leave that to someone who does have both colours but I do have Orgasm
Left - Orgasm - Right -ELF in both pics
They aren't the same but there is no doubt they are similar. the ELF product seems a tiny bit less glittery, and much more pink in tone, where as the Orgasm is more peachy and golden. I personally found the ELF product easier to swatch, it seems a bit more pigmented, and a lot smoother in texture than Orgasm which some people find a bit gritty. All in all they are a bit different but if you like the idea of Orgasm but find it a bit too sparkly, try this for £3.50 you really can't go wrong. I am certainly a happy Lou Lou. You can buy this from
I believe from the 27th of July.
