REVIEW : Lovely ME:EX You & Face Blusher (05 Pink Affair & 09 Cinnamon Dream)



Hi! Today I'm going to review products from The Faceshop that I know a lot of you might already see them almost every where, it's Lovely ME:EX You & Face Blusher in 05 Pink Affair and 09 Cinnamon Dream. They cost me KRW 5.900 (OOPS! KRW 4.900!) each and definitely one of the cheapest blusher out there.


The packaging is so simple. Didn't come with a box, just with a plastic seal. It's really small and didn't contain anything outside the product itself. I like the packaging, it doesn't use so much space. Suggested by the numbering, I supposed there are 9 shades or more, but I only found 8 shades on the site.

I think they contain a decent amount of product (4g) despite of their small packaging. I prefer to apply them with my Real Techniques 'contour brush' just because the size fits perfectly! Once again, you do need a blush brush because it doesn't come with one.


"Pink Affair" is a shimmer light baby pink which I would never go for a blush - but since I'm looking for a new blusher and always tend to get the similar color, I said to myself why not try something new? I don't realized that it has shimmer, because it's very subtle and from the plastic packaging it looks like it is matte.


"Cinnamon Dream" is a matte contour shade I supposed. It's the darker color out of 2 contour shade. Even though it looks pretty dark but I never hold my hopes too high for Korean Brand blusher because I never find products that is quite pigmented, especially for contouring.


Both of them has a very nice texture. It's smooth and 'creamy' for a powder product. I can feel how smooth it is when I glide my fingers over it. Both of them has this 'powder' scents, which I love actually (because it remains me of my mom's makeup).

For the pigmentation, GRAH, 'Pink Affair' look almost like nothing at first, I have to really really layer it for the color to actually show up. It's the same with 'Cinnamon Dream' - but I found out that 'Cinnamon Dream' make a very subtle contour, especially for the sides of my nose. I like it for day contour, I don't have to use lighter hands because it is light already.

please note that my face is darker than my arms!

please tell me you can see the difference. 

Overall, I will maybe repurchase 'Cinnamon Dream', in case I won't find better bronzer until it is empty. And 'Pink Affair' (or both, really) is definitely designed for someone with fair skin, I have a pretty light skin (MAC NC 25-30) but it doesn't really work, unless you have time to layer it again and again.

Though I really liked the texture and the subtle look it gives, I still use them for my daily look. (I think I wasted my time to apply the blush, really.)


with flash (looks a bit better right?)

Anyway I'm very very busy recently. I felt very restless and the school works just got on my nerves. And everytime I got some time free, instead of actually blogging (believe me, i got a lot of stuff stored!) I just sometime stared blankly at my macbook and did nothing. Or sometime I just catch up on some tv shows. Please Wednesday come faster I want to watch 'Heirs'.  Now please I have to sign off to go to my weekly 'Batak' dance practice.

Thankyou for reading! <3
