This is an oooverdue post. I bought these blushes more than a month ago and have been using them ever since. I have a pale complexion so I needed a little color on my face so I wouldn't look sickly. >.< I used to suffer from acne so my cheeks still has some acne marks but I conceal them so that it wouldn't be emphasized when I put on my blush. But wasn't able to for this post. :p So pardon my blemished cheeks. ^^ Anyway, let's move on to the review.
First is the dreamgirl 4u2 shining thru cheek color in no.1. It was on sale. I forgot the exact price but it's under P200. There were only 3 pcs left when I saw this and the other shades were already out of stock so I thought it must be that good and bought it right away.^^ They have 4 shades if I'm not mistaken. It came with a cute puff but I kept it somewhere because I prefer using a brush. Here are the swatches.
|On the pan. It has silver shimmers on it.|
|See how pigmented it is. It's a nice fuchsia shade. L-Swatched. R-Blended.|
|On me and my healing blemishes. The sunflower oil helped a lot. It used to be much worse.|
~Pigmented so a little goes a long way.
~Staying power is actually quite decent for the price. Lasted on me for about 6hours w/out retouching! And I have an uber oily face. The color faded but it still gave me that subtle blush.
~Easy to blend
~No weird smell
~Subtle shimmers. You actually almost can't tell it has unless you closely stare at it.
~Packaging is a little bulky and the screw cap is a bit of a hassle especially when you're in a hurry.
Other than that I love this product! Will check out the other shades. :)
And here is the lippie I pair it with. I've had this one for quite a while and rarely use it. >_< It's only a P100 and there are 12 shades to choose from.
|Fashion 21 color shine liquid lipstick in no.9. It's a reddish brown shade.|
|On me. It's a nice MLBB shade and moisturizing. :)|
And last but not the least is Ever Bilena's Cheek Blush in Honest. I've been reading a lot of raves about their blushes so I decided to try it and it's only P150. :) Here are the swatches.
|On the pan. It's a vibrant coral shade in person. A summery color. :)|
|Compartment underneath has a mirror and brush.|
|On me. I love this color plus it's matte! :)|
~Again, it's cheap!
~Pigmented but not like dreamgirl's
~Easy to blend
~No weird smell
~Not as chalky as dreamgirl's
~Packaging is not bulky and the flip top cover makes it convenient to use
~The mirror and brush is perfect for touch-ups.
~Poor staying power. It only lasted 2 hours on me. Oh well, I can't complain for the price. :)
~The brush sheds like craaazy!
But over all I still like this blush. :)
And now for the lippie I pair it with. It's Human Heart Nature's tinted lipbalm. It's under a P100. :)
|It's an orangey bronzey shade. I wish they would come up with other shades.|
|On me. Pigmented! :)|
I alternate these combo depending on my mood. Hope you liked it!
Thanks for dropping by! ^^
