Elf Luminous Putty Blush Review

Elf Luminous Putty Blush is a well-known Elf Cosmetics beauty product. This blush is meant to make your cheeks look vibrant and shining. It has a smooth putty-like texture that makes it easy to apply and blend over your skin.

The Luminous Putty Blush is available in a variety of colors, allowing you to pick the perfect shade to compliment your skin tone.

In this review, we’ll take a closer look at the Elf Luminous Putty Blush to determine if it lives up to its claims.


This blush claims to offer a silky, lightweight composition that dissolves onto the skin. It should be highly pigmented but creamy for a natural shine.

You should be able to build it up to a cream-to-semi-matte powder finish. These are ideal for travel.

We like it because:

  • Has a gleaming complexion with a shimmering finish
  • Creamy, highly pigmented formula dissolves into the skin
  • The formula is lightweight and buildable
  • It changes from a cream to a brilliant powder finish.
  • Hydration is provided by Argan Oil and Vitamin E.

How to Apply

This blush can be applied with your fingers or a brush. I prefer stipple brushes with cream products, and my old elf little stipple brush is still in good condition. 

They do offer an elf Putty Blush Brush, which is also amazing, but it is still a stipple brush at the end of the day.

Elf Putty Blush Swatches and Colors

The elf Putty Blush samples are indicative of an excellent formula. You can see that they have a lot of pigment, but it isn’t full coverage so you can build it up.

The creams appear smooth and diffused, but they are not shining. 

Elf does a good job of offering every hue you’ll ever need with only eight colors! The following are the colors of elf Putty Blush:

  • Bahamas
  • Bali
  • Bora Bora
  • Caribbean
  • Fiji
  • Maldives
  • Tahiti
  • Turks and Caicos

My Review

While these cream blushes appear vibrant in the pot, don’t be alarmed. This formulation is buildable, allowing you to have complete control while still allowing the blush to peek through. 

These will last all day. They do dry down onto the skin and feel more like powder with a semi-matte finish, in my opinion. I always use a stipple brush to apply them, but your fingers or even a sponge will do.

As with any cream, I do not recommend layering these over powder. In terms of pulling up covering underneath or patchiness, this is usually a disaster waiting to happen.

However, makeup artists of all skill levels can use these and should not be intimidated.
