Hello lovely people! :D
How is your Monday?
Today I'm going to review a cute coral blush! Thanks to Iamlove-shop/cosmetic.jolse.com for sending me this lovely product to review! :)
I've seen this line of blush from The Face Shop Lovely me:ex, and I've been wanting to try these for some time now, their cuteness is irresistible! :D (However, the actual product is not so irresistible, -.- I'll explain below.)
I have here the Coral colour, this line also have Rose, Plum, Pink, and Peach colours. All these blushes are packaged in an unique colourful cardboard container, with a puff included inside.
Cute isn't it? *_* (How do you like the new text overlays I've added? :)
Photographing outdoors on sunny days really makes pictures more vibrant! *_*
The top and bottom. Expiration date till 2016!
The ingredients, all in English.
Side view, I really can't get over how cute this blush box is, the puff also adds to it. haha
Between the blush and puff is a thin plastic separator.
The blush, outdoors. The above picture is indoors, so it looks a bit different.
Swatches. Not pigmented at all! I can barely see anything with once swipe. It almost looks white, like a highlighter. ._. And you can see how powdery it is, especially on the 2 layers swatch.
Here's the disappointing results. -.-
After applying this blush THREE times, with considerable force, it still pretty much looks like I have no blush on. I couldn't even pick up any colour difference with my camera after first and second applications. :\
The cardboard container is easy to open and quite sturdy. But I don't really like how the separator between the puff and blush is just a thin plastic, it's difficult to remove, a bit annoying.
The texture of the blush is very powdery, and it doesn't feel like it clings on to skin. However, it does feel very smooth and silky. It pretty much feels like putting powder on my face. -.-
The puff it came with is of course very cute, I think it's decent, picks up the blush nicely, but needs to be washed once in awhile. I do still prefer using a brush to apply.
This is probably the worst part of this product, it has little to no pigmentation! =.= As you can see from the swatches above, the colour is barely visible, and that's using my finger to pickup the colour! Nothing would even show if I've used the puff. Then on my cheek, it's only after 3 applications of using the puff would the colour just barely show on pictures and real life! And I used quite a bit of force too. It's really disappointing since I really like how the coral colour looks in the container, and there's even a hint of glitter but that doesn't show either. :\
Well, the colour doesn't really show up in the first place, so it's not easy to judge when it fades, so it doesn't even matter. xP But I like how this makes my cheeks feel very smooth and silky. The feeling stays for a while too. Might as well use this as a powder. xD
Also, this has a very powdery scent, and not the baby powder kind, just dusty powder. +_+
I think this is the worst blush I've tried. :( Very powdery and not pigmented at all. Technically you can spend time on it by applying layer after layer of blush to get a hint of colour, but it's annoying and it shouldn't have to be that way. So disappointing, because the packing is cute, and the colour looks nice in the container too. And it can't be because the product is old, it's expiration date is in 2016! Too bad they spend all their resources on the exterior, and not the actually blush. ._.
- Silky smooth texture
- Cute packaging
- Very poor pigmentation!
- Smells powdery
- Puff gets dirty easily
- Flimsy blush and puff separator
Although I don't personally recommend this product, you can find it here for $6.95 on IamLove-shop/cosmetic.jolse.com. They have some great prices, free shipping, and wonderful customer service, and I'm sure you'll find better blushes on there too! ;)
Have you had poor experiences with blushes?
And thank you for reading this review! :D
Hopefully it's informative somehow.
See you next post~ ^^
