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
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
