I fell in love with Pink Lemonade and for a good part of June It was the only cheek colour I'd wear, aside from bronzer. It's a nice bright pink for my skin tone, you can apply it with your fingers and not end up looking like a clown and it has some shimmer so it's like a highlight too. Becareful not to blend too much. Especially when using your fingers, the product starts sticking more to your fingers and less to your face, so it looks like you aren't wearing anything but shimmer.
The other colours I have are also lovely. I picked them after viewing a bunch of swatches so I didn't get something that was way too pale for my brown skin. I like that they can be worn all over. I wore Toasted as a warm bronzy blush/ highlighter at some point and Golden Peaach as an eyebrow highlight as well as all over my lids another time. Of course using a primer, as the creamy consistency will crease on your lids.
- Affordable.. more like CHEAP!
- Easy to apply
- Convenient to carry around
- Multi-purpose as it can be used on any part of face
- Combines shimmer and colour
- Gives healthy glow and colour
- Faint fruity smell ( I thought it was just Pink Lemonade, but all have it)
- Not for oily skin or hot climates
- Not waterproof or long lasting
- Prone to creasing without eye primer
- Can look overly shiny (may need setting with powder)
The Raw Sugar:I love the colours of these colour sticks and how nicely they can be worn all over the face. Although they're a breeze to apply (especially on darker skin), they just do not stand up long enough in my climate. I don't know if I also need to use a face primer or set them with a powder too, but I'd rather it be hassle-free. I do like the flush of colour they give for the first couple hours, but after that you will need to touch up. To defend e.l.f though, they don't toot about being long lasting anyway, and it is convenient enough to carry around. I think it's a good product, I like it!
