e.l.f Custom Face (refill) Review

e.l.f says:  Exquisite texture, and delicate mineral pigment  leaves cheeks feeling healthy and looking radiant with that natural glow. Infused with texturizing agents, skin feels smooth and pores are minimized. Choose your favorite colors that best compliment your unique and beautiful look.
Place your element into the e.l.f. technologically designed magnetic lock system compact, and complete your customized palette. Brush gently over face powder with e.l.f. blushing-bronzing brush and tap any excess powder off brush and apply, blend into apples of cheeks for flawless application.
e.l.f UK site recently hit 250k likes on their facebook page Click here to see.....So as a way of saying thank you they are doing yet another 50% off all their products on  The Code is: 250KFB(uk & European customers) 250KFBIT(Italian Customers) until the 12th September 2pm UK time  

"Love this photo its great" 
I recently ordered 2 compacts and 4 custom face refills from e.l.f UK site as they only have 50% off about a month ago.........
I have already reviewed the Compact in a previous Review Click here to view .  
So i will go ahead and review the Custom Face Refills i got along with my compacts.
The Product 
In Shades "Flushed, Bronzed, Coy & Glow"
Like the custom eyeshadows you are gettting a small thin box ingredients listed on the back.......inside the blush/bronser is placed in plastic that was formed to the shape of the pan. And the plastic is clicked-lock.   This is quite handy to keep in of you didnt want to buy the compact to put it in :)  

The Shades 

Flushed:  This is a beautiful strong rosy shade with shimmer.....The shimmer is not that noticeable when applied.......Be warn this shade is so so so highly pigmented you really need to use a light hand if you have fair skin or you will look like a porcelain doll........This is a perfect shade for anyone who has darker skin tone oh it would be beautiful :) This shade i will be purchasing again 

Bronzed:  This is a nice bronze shade if you have fair skin use a light hand as this can make you look a little orange if you have medium skin tone this is perfect for you and i dont think this would make a difference to anyone with a dark skin tone.......this is a lovely shade and very highly pigmented so a little goes a long way 

Coy:  This is certainly not the shade for my i would perhaps use it on my eyes but not on my cheeks......This is more of a brown shade plus gold shimmer.....I could see maybe someone who is a darker skin tone wearing this but not of an Irish gal like me 

Glow:  I Love this shade love it!!!!!! I am A Lover of Peach and Pinks......This is a beautiful Peach shade with a slight bit of shimmer which adds a beautiful natural glow to your cheeks.  Its a little less pigmented than the rest but it is build-able which i like as i can wear it during the day in intensify it at nights out :) :) 

The Swatches 
Swatches in Normal Light 
Swatches in Sunlight 
My Overall Opinion 
Ok to get the cons out of the way the only real con i have about these is the size....The fact that they are so highly pigmented i would love to see them in a bigger size.....they can be hard to use with a brush because of the size and if you use one often they wouldnt be long used up and maybe another con would be the fact they are a little powdery.  Thats all the cons i have the rest are pros.....I love the blushes......They are extremely handy for your handbag.......For £1.50/$1/€1.70 each you cant lose out.......If you havent tried these i recommend you give them a try :) :) 

Thanks so much for taking your time to read my review and i hope it was helpful to you..
Take care 
Cya soon 
Love Nina
