My $0.02:

Pigmentation & Color (Plus Swatches! :D):



There're only 4 colors available where i live - they're:

102 True Rose - a light peachy rose that looks so natural on my NC20-25 skin! In fact, this is the first blush i ever owned! :)

103 Sandalwood Veil - a sweet pale bubblegum pink

114 Fresh Papaya - a shimmery peach with gold reflects

04 Rosewood - a shimmery mid rose

Pigmentation wise they go on sheer, but are definitely buildable. Two swipes is all i need (one for the shimmery ones) to achieve a natural flush!!

Swatches:




The Applicator & Packaging:

The new packaging almost similar to the old one except the new one has this plastic reflective cover which looks more appealing than the old one. Both packaging has a built in mirror, which is great!


I however, prefer the old packaging as the new one is soooo difficult to open!! i had to stick my nail in between the clasp to pry it open! Grrr!

These blushes come with a brush also!


It looks rather scratchy at a glance, but is actually alright to use on the face! it's better than most of the compact blush brush that i've tried before :) however, i still recommend using a fluffy blush for the perfect application :)


Texture & Taste:
There're two textures - the Matt ones which have no shimmers (perfect for the natural look) and the Radiant ones which are shimmery. Both go on smoothly but Fresh Papaya has the best texture IMHO! These blushes have a wonderful orangy scent which fades away after sometime! :)

Time Test:
These blushes last the whole day despite being powder blushes!!

Price & Availability:
This product is priced at RM36.90 / about US$8-$9 each which i personally think is cheap! They are available at most Loreal counters at Watsons / Guardian / Your local supermarket :)

Usage:
These blushes are pretty foolproof! I used to use True Rose on a daily basis for a natural flush. I also use Fresh Papaya as a highlight for my cheekbones! :)


In a Nutshell:

These are excellent drug store blushes that works beautifully without breaking the bank!

Likes: Universally flattering shades, compact and light (perfect for travelling)
Gripes: The bad packaging, limited shades!
Repurchase: I would if i ever run out!
