e.l.f. mineral blushes

e.l.f. mineral blushes are same sized as the foundations and come in 7 different tones. I ordered 5 of them: Coral, Bliss, Joy, Pink and Rose. Coral and Bliss seem very similar, Coral being a tad more pinkish. For me Joy and Pink are keepers, the rest are not exactly my colors, Rose is definitely too dark.
Of these here I'd say  Joy is the easiest to use by pale girls. They're not exactly matte - to me it seems they have some sheen to them, some glow. The cost is 5$ or 3,5£, depending whether one shops at the UK or US store. Jars are the same size as e.l.f. mineral foundations and concealers - quite a lot of product in there.
Swatches are made dry and picture is taken in daylight.

Here's a pic of me wearing e.l.f.'s mineral concealer in Fair as foundi - looks just a wee bit orange... Other stuff used are mineral eyeshadow in Confident and mineral blush in Rose. Dark yellow circle around my eye is the result ofe.l.f.'s  mineral Eye Brightener - for me a pointless product, too dark.
This is what e.l.f.'s mineral foundation in Fair looks on me (check out the tone difference between neck and face):
I've made the pic so big that when clicked you can see the coverage up real close.

I really don't like the reddish look :S. I guess my face has indeed become somewhat darker then my body because spring sun is actually quite potent but I do not wish to emphasize it with my foundation. I'm going to start using lighter foundations to compensate, I guess mostly EDM's Olive Fair.
