Review ♥ EB ADVANCE Cheek Color (Orchid)
It has been years since my last review on a local Philippine brand makeup. I can't remember the exact date but it was about 2 to 3 years ago. Now, I am a little confused if Ever Bilena is a local Philippine brand because I remembered that I reviewed a foundation from Daiso from the same name of the brand.
I bought this from SM department store, a section of a mall in Philippines, on sale for 105 Philippine Pesos (tax included) but the original price of this is 175 Philippine Pesos. This is a Philippine local brand so I think this is only available in Philippine market. I'm not sure if there are online sellers in other countries.
At the back, the color doesn't matches the shade inside so ignore this and just look at inside the box to also check if the blush is in good condition. There is a hole on the front of the box but it is too small to really see the shade.

The container is made of plastic and isn't that neat. It also feels cheap but that doesn't bother me as long as the actual blush is good.
This contains 2.2 grams of the product. The quantity is lesser than the other cheek blush available on the market but with moderate use, it could last you for a month to a year.
The manufactured date was in August 2015. It is already 2 years ago but the counting of the expiration date starts at the moment you open or use the product. This is good for 2 years.
With just looking at the left picture, it seems that the container is full with blush up to the bottom. I also thought of it at first and I never thought that there's a mirror and brush under it. The mirror is small but it's better than nothing.
I really love this shade which is fuchsia. This is what I really wanted to try out of all the shades that are available. It is matte and there are no shimmers in it. It is not chalky and there are no fall outs (swatched with finger).
The brush included isn't the best but it works. It gets a lot of the blush and it causes fall outs. It is also quite uncomfortable because there are some strands that pokes my cheeks. It is also hard to even out with this brush.
On my left cheek is where I apply the blush with the included brush. On my right cheek, I used my preferred brush. The right cheeks looks much better than the left. It is blended beautifully.
I really love this blush especially the shade of this. This is perfect with simple eye shadow and light shades of lipstick. I wore it the whole day and it stays the same even after hours.
