    This e.l.f. studio contour palate is talked about for being a dupe for the NARS contour kit. It comes in a few shades and is made up of a bronzy/brown contour powder and a matching blush.

    The contour powder is ok. I have olive skin and it seems to work alright, although I am not the most experienced contour-ista. The blush isn't nearly as pigmented. The colour I have is nice but it doesn't show up well on my face. It is too shimmery and is just not great quality.

    For $4 (at Target) I have no regrets and will probably continue using the contour side.

    I love pretty much everything I get from this brand and these blush bronzer combos are not exception. They are very similar to the NARS brand for a lot less money. The color payoff and texture are really great!!!!

    I have these in both St. Lucia and Turks & Caicos, as I have very pale skin & both sets work well for me. The Turks & Caicos is very neutral looking on me, while the St. Lucia is a bit brighter. The key to using these bronzers if you are very light skinned is to only use a tiny amount. I literally lightly tap my brush once on the bronzer and that will be enough. You can always repeat the process to build up the color. but if you're pale start very gently, because it's highly pigmented! Anyway they are both very lovely shades and very easy to use.
    Also, the cost was amazing - I was able to take advantage of elf's 50% off birthday sale, so $1.50 each!!

    If you want an affordable dupe to the NARS Orgasm blush and Laguna bronzer, this is it! The shades e.l.f. offers come pretty close to theirs and the pigmentation is amazing, so a little goes a long way. I suggest you tap your makeup brush lightly so as not to go overboard with the product. I did find the product to be a little powdery when you swipe your brush across the pans, but if you're careful, you'll avoid making a mess. I really like the fact that both blush and bronzer come in the same case, making it more compact for your makeup bag. I have received many compliments when wearing this and in my opinion, it looks just as good as any high end product out there. The shades offered will probably suit most skin tones. Just use a lighter hand if you are fair skinned.

    This is a really great set. I like both the blush and the bronzer. The blush is pigmented, but also blendable, and a natural color. I don't like that the bronzer has shimmer, but it isn't apparent from far away, so it can be used for contouring.

    I have been using certain ELF products for a few years now, and although some of them are not worth even the cheap $1 to $3, this one IS!! This is better than any blush/bronzer I have ever tried, and for only $3! It goes on smooth, it glistens, and blends into my skin tone perfectly, I just love it. It stays on all day too

    This is such a bargain! The product is good quality (a very good dupe for the NARS Orgasm/Laguna duo!) and the colors are pretty. The packaging is very sturdy and really nice for travel -- the mirror is huge and your blush and bronzer are together. This duo used to come in only one shade, now it's available in 3! I can't wait to pick up the other two. Great product!

    The blush is a pretty peachy-pink color and reminds me of NARS Orgasm, but the color is sheer and chalky. The pigmentation on the contour powder is much better (it is actually quite pigmented so you have to use a light hand), but I find the color to be too orange. It also runs dark on most skin tones. Personally, I would not repurchase this product.
