Spring Blush Love: ELF Studio Blush in Tickled Pink

Just a quick word for you before we get down to the business of today's post: I'm sure by now you've heard that Google Friend Connect will be going away on July 1st. I've already imported all the blogs I follow via GFC into BlogLovin'. BlogLovin seems to work in a very similar manner to GFC so if you want to switch over here's a simple tutorial to import all your followed blogs to BlogLovin'.

Now, on to today's Spring Blush Love, E.L.F.'s Studio Blush in Tickled Pink!

Tickled Pink is a light neutral pink with just a little bit of peachiness to it. There isn’t any obvious shimmer, just a nice sheen. It looks like a healthy glow on the cheeks and pairs nicely with pretty much any look. I often wear this when I’m not sure what blush to wear or if I’m looking for something that won’t compete with my eyes or lips.

I think for some people this blush might be too sheer. It’s ok for me because I’m pretty pale. It’s pretty buildable and I don’t think it ever looks chalky or powdery on me. The texture is nice and buttery. I think for $3, the formula on this is really good. I own a couple other ELF blushes and they all seem to feel nice and soft without being powdery.

While I’m sure this color isn’t overly unique, it’s a great staple blush. Everyone needs a neutral blush that they feel confident wearing with any look. I do wear this all year round but in the spring time I do a lot of really natural, “no makeup” type looks so this gets a ton of use. If you haven’t checked out this line of blushes before you really need to!
If you have a favorite ELF blush, leave your recommendations in the comments! I've been meaning to place an ELF order for a while now. And anyone else feeling sad about GFC going away?


  1. Agreed! A great staple blush for sure :) Passion pink is also one of my favorites.
