Review ♥ ETUDE HOUSE Fresh Cherry Tint #02 RD301

Image
I can't remember the place where I bought this. I think I bought this in Japan but I checked their Japanese website and foubd out that this product is not available. In their Philippine website this is available and it costs 348PHP or 6.71USD. (as of May 10, 2018)

As usual, the container is cute just like other Etude House's product. 

I don't know how to properly describe its' applicator but I can say that this is easy to use.



I see this shade as reddish pink and it could disappoint others because the actual color is different from the color of the container. The scent is sweet and is similar to cherry flavored chewing gums. It is not overpowering and it is not bothering me.
The liquid is not runny but mousse and I found it very easy to apply than the liquidy type.

The pigmentation of this product is impressive. Unlike other lip tints, this spreads evenly and settles fast. It is also very comfortable. To summarize it all, it feels like you have nothing on your lips. But jus…

Image
I bought this from Tokyu Department Store in Shibuya, Japan. This costs 4,536 Japanese Yen (tax included). I have been using this for months now and is still my favorite.

It is a luxurious, slow-baked, velvety soft, domed face powder with a radiant finish.

Review ♥ MAC Mineralize Blush (Warm Soul) / MAC ミネラライズ ブラッシュ ウオーム ソウル

Image
I bought this from Tokyu Department Store in Shibuya, Japan. This costs 3,780 Japanese Yen (tax included). This is the most expensive blush I have so far. I am not really into expensive brands but MAC is one of my favorite. 
     I have already used this several times and I already lost the box. It contains 3.2 grams and will probably last for a year or more since I don’t wear this everyday and a little tap with a brush is enough to get the blush that I want.

     When I bought this, I didn’t have an idea on what shade to buy. I am torn between choosing a shade that will make me look mature or a shade that will make me look younger. After thinking for some time, I asked the saleslady to give me a blush that will make me look mature and will complement my skin and she gave me this. I am NC 15 by the way.
     According to their website, Warm Soul is a mid tone beige with gold pearl and is sheer. It has a lightweight formula that glides onto skin to achieve luminous colour that builds…
