If you’re into a minimal makeup look, your vanity might include eyeshadow sticks and blendable concealer. However, another quick and easy product you should add to your arsenal is this $5 e.l.f. creamy blush stick.
The brand refers to it as a “multi-stick” because you can use it on your eyes, lips and face (that’s what “e.l.f.” stands for). Not sure you’d want to put pink blush on your eyes, but you do you, boo. People on Amazon rave about it (over 19,000 people, actually) for its lightweight formula that’s easy to blend. It also has a bit of shimmer to give your skin a fresh, dewy look.
e.l.f. Monochromatic Multi Stick, $5
“I heard good things about this stuff and decided to try it,” wrote one reviewer. “I really like it. It’s super light weight and isn’t sticky. It blends really well and looks very natural and flattering. I love that I can literally throw it in my purse and refresh when I need. I will certainly be buying more.”
The e.l.f. Multi Stick comes in eight shades, although only five are available on Amazon. The most popular seems to be the sparkling rose color. It’s small enough that it won’t take up much room in your makeup bag, and it’s easy to slip into a purse for on-the-go color. Once you apply it, you can blend it with your fingers or a brush for an effortless glow.
“Having used much more expensive cheek color in the past, I am thrilled that for $5 I can get similar, if not better results, from this little tube,” wrote another reviewer. “Just a smudge on each cheek and on my chin in the morning, and I don’t even need a touch up. The color is subtle (sparkling rose) but delivers a healthy glow. Highly recommend.”
Look, if you don’t want to spend a lot on your makeup routine, you don’t have to. Amazon is chockfull of great products at low prices, and this cream blush stick is a standout. Plus, for $5, you don’t have much to lose.
