Review: FS Cosmetics Powder Blush

Since I love blushes, I got so excited when I saw the FS Cosmetics Powder Blush in Warm Chiffon in my May 2015 BDJ Box: Kiss Dry Goodbye! Another blush to try out!!! 😀

Well, not as a blush. Read on why…

Product Description (taken from the FS Cosmetics website):

Silky-soft powder blush blends smoothly and easily for a streak-free, natural finish look.

Given that this is a blush, I would love to see the shade from the outside. If it has a transparent top cover, it would be better. Mirror dilemma? It could be placed underneath the powder where you flip it up to see the mirror.

When I saw the shade name, I thought that Warm Chiffon would be a rosy type of color. Well, it’s not. Upon opening the compact, I saw that the color is a medium, skin-toned like shade. I immediately thought that this would not work well as a blush. It can work for contouring.

With that, I think that blushes should have shades that could really be used as a blush. For me, it is kind of confusing to see blush shades that should rather be used as a contour powder.

The compact also includes a brush inside. Since this is intended to be used as a blush, I think that this is fine. However, given that the shade is not so much for that purpose, I cannot use this. I will rather go for the usual contour brushes.

For Pantene, I bought some items from their newest haircare line: the Aqua Pure Shampoo and Conditioner.

I already ran out of my Olay White Radiance CelLucent White Essence Serum and I am about to finish my sample of the Benefit It’s Potent! Eye Cream. I am hesitating to buy these products because they are too pricey so I tried searching for other brands that carry serums and eye creams. I was about to give up looking when I spotted Pure Beauty in Watsons in SM Makati. They have affordable skincare products. With that, I got their Pomegranate Antioxidant Serum and the White & Bright Eye Cream.

Review: Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Lip & Cheek Gel

If you like bringing makeup with you wherever you go, you would definitely need products that are travel-friendly. You could opt to go with products that have a double purpose to save space in your makeup bag or pouch. An example would be a lip and cheek stain just like the Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Lip & Cheek Gel in Amethyst which I got from my January-February 2014 BDJ Box: Change It Up! 😀

Product Description (taken from the Ellana Mineral Cosmetics website):

One of our bestsellers, the Lip & Cheek Gel gives a gorgeous, rosy glow that lasts the whole day. It delivers a sheer and beautiful no-makeup look while moisturizing your skin. It doesn’t dry quickly, giving you enough time to blend it evenly on your cheeks.

The bottle does not have a cap included but you can twist the pump to lock it and prevent it from accidental spillage when you keep it inside your makeup pouch.

Here is a swatch of the Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Lip & Cheek Gel in Amethyst.

This product is super pigmented that you will just need a really small amount particularly if you are going to use this as a cheek stain. This does not dry up easily so you can have enough time to blend it on your cheeks. I like that this product could give a natural, rosy glow on my cheeks and it stays put the whole day.
