Eyes Lips Face vs Clinique (low budget vs high end)

Eyes Lips Face Bronzer: elf and Clinique Blushing Blush Powder: Smouldering Plum
So my elf bronzer was a very low budget buy at just £2.99, 
the design is very simple and elegant and has elf in printed into the powder. 
The bronzer itself is a lovely colour but I do feel that it does not cover
so great, it is a little bit patchy but is good if you just want to do one area of your face! There are many complaints of this colour being too shimmery. I have found that using this product as a highlighter works tonnes better than a bronzer.


The Clinique blusher has a great silky formula and is so easy to apply over the cheekbones! 
I was given this blusher as a present a few years ago and only just started using it, 
I have seen a fair few reviews about how this colour is very popular!
The colour is described as a 'heathered purple', its a cool toned plum/pink shade which is lovely because its not too over powering.
I unfortunately do not know how much this costs but from researching similar products I think it would of been between £20 and £25 which is a little bit pricey but it does last for about 5-6 hours or 7-8 hours if layered on my skin so i think its worth it.


Overall i really feel that spending that little extra money is more than worth it. 
Although I use the Elf Bronzer as a fairly good highlighter
I can't use it for its actual use whereas the Clinique blusher is perfect
for its purpose and is a great product that I really recommend.
