ELF’s Blush In Coy: A Functional Multi-Tasker

Many Walmart stores in the Denver area have been setting up elf ‘tree’ displays. I already own a lot of elf products but, as I read more blogs posting about other elf items, I’m adding to my collection. Here’s my newest one, a powder blush…

This one is called ‘Coy’…

And here are the good symbols I like to see on health and beauty packages…

As much as I think ‘Coy’ is a great color for contouring, it’s just too shimmery for my taste. ‘Coy’ is a light peach shade that has flecks of pink and peach shimmers. Therefore, I am using this, mostly, as a cheek highlighter…

And, I have experimented with it as an eye shadow too. That made for a pretty look and this powder is creamy enough that once it is patted on, it does have some good stay-put to it…

For a mere $2, this elf blush is a workhorse. It can be used as a blush (as elf intends it to be), a shadow (which I liked very much) and a face highlighter (what is very trendy right now). When I used my more densely-packed shadow brush, the blush was more crumbly than when I swiped it with a big, fluffy highlighter brush. You can see from the photo previously how crumbly just a finger swipe back and forth made it. But, the feel of this blush is very creamy once on the skin. I could definitely control how light or, how heavy I wanted to apply it.

In this photo, I used ‘Coy’ as a cheek contour only…

It’s a bit to shimmery for me and doesn’t give me enough depth at the cheek bone. Nor does it give me a ‘flushed’ look. However, in this photo, I used an old Avon matte bronzer as contour, an old (and favorite) Color Workshop blush, and ‘Coy’ on the very apples of my cheeks…

For the complete look, I have Southern Magnolia Minerals foundation, Chinovi’s ‘Gaga’ and ‘New Year’s’ shadow, ‘Gaga’ foiled as an eyeliner, elf brow pencil and Maybelline’s The Falsies Volum Express mascara…

It is hard to find a completely full tree elf display at Walmarts because the products are very popular. If you get a chance to find elf’s blushes, you might like to try ‘Coy’. It seems it would be not only be useful for several different jobs but also, it could work for many different skin tones.

Have you tried out elf’s blushes yet? How easy is it for you to find elf products?
