Hello hello everyone! Hope you are all having a wonderful day (or night)! :)
I know I said in my last post that I was going to review the Etude House Sweet Recipe Ice Cream nail polishes next, but my nails and cuticles are in horrible conditions right now due to stress from summer school. I have been subconsciously picking at them. T_T So they are in no condition to be shown to the world. So sorry about that. But I'm consciously taking care of them now, so the review should be up very soon! hehe :D
Anyways, back to the relevant topic: The Etude House Water Color Blusher! I've got this a couple of weeks ago, and was so excited to get it, cause it looked so interesting! I have never seen a blush in a tube, and I didn't have any peachy blush, so I got this. It's a perfect colour for the summer! :D
Read on to see my review.~
It's so cute! I thought it was going to be bigger. It's about the length of my finger :3
I purchased this for around $10 CAD on EBay.
A tube contains 10ml of product.
It also comes in shades #1 Pink, #2 Coral, and #4 Lilac.
It looks exactly like a tube of water colour paint with it's screw on cap. ^o^
It's travel friendly, since it's small and very light. The screw cap is also easy to remove and place back on.
Really nice that it came sealed. :3
Blended out. This was actually using about the half of the amount shown above.
On my cheek. I don't know why it looks so pink here, but in real life its more peachy like the picture above.
The texture is really creamy, light, and smooth. It's water based, so when first applied it gives a slight cooling sensation, very light-weight and acts sort of like a tint for the cheek. I used my fingers to apply and it blends extremely easily and evenly onto my skin, without any stickiness.
The colour looks pigmented when just squeezed out, but when blended out it's actually quite sheer. I really like the sheerness of it, because I really like natural looking makeup, and this colour just creates a very healthy glow to my cheeks without looking like I have blush on. But with that said, it is still buildable if you want a more intense colour. :)
This particular shade #3 Apricot is a creamy orange colour, well like an apricot. xD
My skin has a yellow undertone, and I think this colour really energizes my face, making me look less tired and dull.
This blush stays on my cheeks for quite a long time, I have worn this for 5-6 hours and it was still visible after as a slight tint. But it does fade over time, so I would recommend putting some powder over it for the original colour intensity to last longer.
This is probably the only thing I don't love about this product. It's hard to describe the scent, but it's has sweet fruity scent, maybe like an apricot? But I'm not sure what apricots smell like. But it also smells artificial, and sorta like water colour paint. xD
But it's not noticeable after application, so I don't mind. :)
I love this blush! Love the packaging design, the colour, and how well it blends! I think it's especially useful during warm weathers, as it's cooling doesn't feel heavy at all! It looks very natural on the cheeks, and there are 4 pretty colours to choose from. I would definitely recommend this to anyone to try. ^o^
- Very smooth and blendable.
- Sheer but also buildable.
- Feels light and refreshing.
- Good staying power.
- Natural looking.
- Cute and creative packaging.
- Artificial scent (very minor).
That's it for this review! ^^
Have you tried this blush or want to? I would love to know. :)
I really want to try the Lilac colour now :0 It looks so pretty!
Anyways summer courses has been so intense for me @_@ I have to read 3 chapters for 2 lectures of psychology, and each chapter is around 30 pages! I also need to read 4 chapters for classics, and I just had a quiz on the second day of class! Ohmaiigaa... T_T I hope I'll make it out alive. e.e
Blogging always takes my stress away. =w=
So thank you so much for reading! It really motivates me and I <3 you all!
I'll see you next post~ it'll be something fun ;D
