E.l.f Healthy Glow Bronzing Powder in Luminance : Review & Swatches

Saturday, November 12, 2011
Hi girls , Today i am going to review a much talked about product by E.l.f cosmetics , healthy glow bronzing powder in luminance . Healthy glow bronzing powder is available in 4 shades . I got Luminance , which is the lightest shade of the lot , it seems to be a more highlighter shade to me than a bronzer, lets see what do i have to say about this :
Product Information :

A touch of sunshine to warm up every complexion with its soft and silky texture for a beautiful and natural glow.


Using e.l.f. professional blush brush, lightly brush over powder, tapping off any excess. Apply to cheeks and across bridge of nose and forehead. Blend with Total Face Brush to insure seamless application.

Net weight: 0.18oz (5g)

Talc, Mica (CI 77019), Paraffinium Liquidum (Mineral Oil), Titanium Dioxide, Zinc Stearate, Kaolin, Petrolatum, Methylparaben, Propylparaben, Iron Oxides (CI 77491 , CI 77492 , CI 77499), Red No.27 Lake (CI 45410), Red No.7 Lake (CI 15850), Yellow No.5 Lake (CI 19140), Blue No.1 Lake (CI 42090), Ultramarines (CI 77007)
Packaging :
E.l.f healthy glow bronzing powder is available in a compact packaging which looks really ordinary , it has a transparent flip open lid, and does not contain any applicator brush. I guess e.l.f cosmetics concentrated more on the product inside instead of packaging . Be careful while using this product , as it seems to be made by really cheap plastic material and can be broken easily if falls down accidently .

My thoughts :
This product was bought for me by one of my cousin living abroad, i asked her to buy few random products of e.l.f products in accordance to my skin complexion. And i am glad that she made right choices for me . I am not a bronzer person , and Luminance is a shade which is not exactly a bronzer shade for me . It has a beige color with gold shimmers . It is the lightest shade of bronzer that i came across in my life. I love to put this bronzing powder to highlight my cheeks after blush application. and i love the glowing effect it creates on my medium complexion . It stays put on me for atleast 4 to 5 hours . Its texture is buttery smooth and blends easily using a blush brush. I also love the embossed e.l.f name on top of the bronzing powder ,it looks really classy , i did not expect this from a 1$ product.
Here is a swatch of this on my hand :

Over all , it is a product worth trying and i feels that it is a great addition to my vanity case without doing a hole in my pocket :)

Price & Availability :
Available internationally for 1 dollars , I am glad that this product is available in Pakistan too for Rs. 170. i will be trying more shades of this in future. You can go through

P.S :  I have changed my blog layout and its background too , what do you think of the changes i made . please let me know in your comments ..!!

Thats all for today girls , stay beautiful !!
