ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder

I have mentioned that highlighting and contouring is my favourite area when it comes on to makeup artistry.There are times however  when  I just don't want to go through the extra steps to get the sculpted look but I don't want my makeup to look one dimensional either, so to add a bit of definition to my face I have been reaching for the ELF Contouring Blush and Bronzing Powder in Turks and Caicos.

Product Features: This blush and bronzer duo contains just that a blush which highlights the cheeks and a bronzer which promises to "accentuate and  contour the cheekbones".

Overall Experience:This US$3 duo was purchased solely for the bronzer component as I feel that the blush portion wouldn't necessarily show up on my skintone and after using it several times I have to say that the bronzer is a good product. The bronzer in this ELF duo is shimmery in the pan and being a matte bronzer lover I was a bit skeptical initially, however I am happy to report that once the bronzer is applied to cheeks and sufficiently blended into the skin with my Real Techniques Contour Brush  the shimmery attributes significantly diminish and you are left with a defined face.The other key points to mention are that the bronzer is not chalky and difficult to blend, instead it is smooth, blends into the skin like a dream and looks very natural looking which makes it perfect for everyday use.
In conclusion I like this product and recommend it to any WOC who is looking into finding an affordable contouring product that offers a defined yet natural looking finish.

What is your go to product for a natural contour?
