Velvet Matte Cream Blusher
I got the shades Pink Chu and Coral Fever on sale here in BeautyMNL. The blush you get in the pot is true to color when applied on the cheeks. It has really good pigmentation, blends very well with your fingers but I prefer using this with a sponge to that it's diffused already when applying on the cheeks. The consistency is not sticky, it has more of a waxy feel. Comparing to the Sunnies airblush which has a sheer pigmentation and has an emollient consistency, this one has more pigment and sets as velvet matte on the skin. It looks good when applied on bare face, foundation, and I've tried on top of a thin layer of powder. I, however, don't see that it last the entire day, probably a good 4-5 hours. Typically, blush often fades throughout the day, so if I want to keep the extend the wear, just bring it with you which isn't a big deal since it's travel friendly. Also, it doesn't have an extensive shade range unlike the Sunnies but I think the colors I got would be comparable to Doll and Peached. The two colors are wearable on a daily basis, Pink Chu has a neutral baby pink that looks good on mauvey shades and coral can be really good for warmer tones. I've tried to mix them both and it gives a neutral nude shade. I really think this is an affordable option if you like those particular colors. In terms of using this on my lips, I don't like it since has a waxy feel, if not really hydrated can look patchy. I rather would use on the cheeks exclusively.
