smilingrid: getting cheeky (on a budget)

getting cheeky (on a budget)

Just in case you wanted to dip your toe into the blush pool without jumping right in and paying for the lovely cheek tints in my last post, I thought I'd share a look-alike. Remember my post about e.l.f. cosmetics? They carry a product called their "essential all over color stick" which can act as a blush. 

The best part? Each mini stick is only a dollar!

I've tried these sticks in Pink Lemonade, Persimmon, and Golden Peach. Of the three, I have to say that Golden Peach works best for me. It gives a bit of a glow to my cheeks that works well with my (itty bitty) tan. 

Fair warning- these are super pigmented while also packing a mean glittery punch.

Bottom line: For a dollar? You could do much worse!


  1. E.L.F. makes some great products for the price! You cant beat it! New follower from the Grab A Friend Hop! If you get a chance, stop on over and say hi!

    1. So very true! I'll hop on over once I post this response :) Thanks for joining the fun!

  2. Persimmon is a nice looking colour! I think I have a similar blush to that.


    1. It's absolutely lovely! A tiny hint of color is always nice :)
