Product Comparison-MUA Blush Perfection Cream Blusher Bitter Sweet and E.L.F HD Blush Headliner



Packaging: E.L.F Headliner is packaged in a plastic bottle with a pump for product release. It comes in a box printed with details and it also protects the bottle from getting scratched. The pump isn't very convenient as it doesn't push in with ease and requires effort. It doesn't release a lot of product at once though. MUA Bitter Sweet (read review) comes in a plastic case with a transparent lid attached, which snaps open and close. You can pick the product with a brush or your finger.

Formulation: Both blushes are cream formulated. Headliner has a thicker texture whereas, Bitter Sweet is rather light.

Color: Both are a candy pink color and look exactly the same as you'll see in the picture below.

Pigmentation & Color Payoff: Pigmentation is equally good. However, I expected Headliner to be more neutral in color as it seems from outside the bottle. Bitter Sweet on the other hand, is exactly what it looks like from the outside.

Application & Blending: Headliner takes a bit of effort to blend because of its consistency. It is an HD blush but I didn't notice anything extra ordinary about it. You'll need to apply it with your fingers as a brush doesn't work with it. Bitter Sweet can be applied with fingers as well as a brush and blends very quickly and evenly.

Lasting Power: I didn't notice much of a difference in the lasting power. I love both of these for that. You don't need to reapply at least for a few hours.

Price: Headliner for Pkr 650/- plus additional shipping charges and Bitter Sweet for Pkr 350/-

Availability: I got Headliner from US Cosmetics and Jewelry on Facebook and Bitter Sweet from Just4Girls.pk

Verdict: I'd choose Bitter Sweet over Headliner on terms  of quality, which both products offer alike, affordability and availability because Headliner is only available through select Facebook pages at the moment.

Have you tried any of these products? How did you like them? Do share your experience. Ciao!

  3. for me, Sweet bitter over Elf HD blush in headliner any day everyday too! Honestly, I'm not a fan of cream/liquid based blushes. Because I have combination skin type. So powder blushes are what I dig for. I have tried several MUA products including their blushes, but again they didn't impress me much.

    1. I agree. Some MUA products have disappointed me as well. Powder blushes are a better choice for oily skin but I like this one for it's pigmentation and it stays on :)

  7. I love comparison posts. Not much of a liquid or cream blush person as a powder blush is always my ease-zone.
