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 today, I will be featuring one of my amazing finds that I am currently using. It is the Deoproce Shining Marble Blusher in Lovely Pink. 😀

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.

The Pixy Blush On in Passion Roses has a subtle light pink color that could give a natural rosy blush on your cheeks. This blush has a very, very, very small amount of shimmer in it which makes it close to having a matte finish.

BDJ Box Bruno Mars Challenge Day #5

Do you remember this post? For me, it is a very special post because it is my first ever makeup review here in my blog. It is for the Majolica Majorca Cream de Cheek in Shell Pink Cream. If you get to visit that post, you will notice in the end part that I added a video link of Ms. Barbi Chan talking about how to apply blush properly. It is the first ever makeup video tutorial that I got hooked into when I started my interest in makeup and, definitely, my favorite editorial feature in the BDJ Box website (which would answer the BDJ Box’s Bruno Mars Challenge Day # 5). It is through this tutorial that I was able to learn how to apply blushes without looking like a clown. Haha! 😛

Review: Avon Face Pearls

Looking for a natural-looking blush and highlighter in one product? The Avon Face Pearls can get you covered. I actually got to try this because it is included my January-February BDJ Box: Change It Up!

avon face pearls

How to Use:

This product can be used in two ways (as indicated in the box of the product):

avon face pearls2

I prefer to use this on my cheeks instead of using it for the whole face. I think it is more appropriate to use this as a blusher particularly for a day makeup. Using it for the whole face might be more suited for a night makeup especially if you are going to attend special events or parties.

For a blush, it has an incredibly bulky packaging which makes it not travel-friendly and not “makeup kit”-friendly.
