Fresh Cherry Tint

10/11/2012 § 2 Comments

Review: Fresh Cherry Tint in PK 002 Cherry Hot Pink from Etude House

20121011-222959.jpg

My newest find and the last of the pink addiction πŸ™‚ I’ve been eyeing this compared to the Neon Dear Darling Tint and to relieve stress over a bad threading session, I got myself this baby πŸ™‚ Theres two pink shades in this line and I got the deeper pink. The pale one may not show up on me as good as this color. I’m still battling if this is as good as the liquid lipstick I love but I’m really happy with this already πŸ™‚

This pretty milk tint is intended for the lips but I know some use this on the cheeks..which I’ve tried haha! πŸ™‚ it looks pretty but it’s so creamy that it can’t stand my oilies. where as for my lips, I do love it so much that I’ve been using it everyday..teehee πŸ™‚ this kind of tint is much better than the gel one because this is really moisturizing so I don’t get cracked lips without needing some lip balm. I love how well this lasts so there’s no need for retouching in school πŸ™‚

look at me being vain in the library πŸ˜‰ loving the tint on my lips for school πŸ™‚

From the bottle, its a milky light pink cream that turns into a deeper pink when blended. It feels light and moisturizing like using a liquid lip gloss πŸ™‚ (Is there a solid lip gloss? Haha!) I dot the applicator along my lips then blend with a clean finger. I do use a thick layer cause I love the moisturizing feel and it goes away after a little while. Sometimes It even looks like my natural lip color cause the tint sinks in so well. After two meals and maybe around 6 hours, the pink tint is still on my lips however it shows signs of wear already. Still, good enough for two meals right?? πŸ˜€ best part is how it doesn’t make my lips dry at all. Been using this for a few days now and I haven’t retouched on the balm the entire time πŸ˜‰

    All-In-One Blusher

    Review: All in One Blusher in 04 Marshmallow by The Body Shop

    20121011-191157.jpg

    On to the last product in my Three Pinks blusher spree, this is the one with a special place in my heart. Lol. The last kne I bought that made me stop all the buying..I like it so much I’m torn between hoarding or buying the other colors πŸ˜‰ You know The Body Shop, they make you fall in love with a color then stop producing the line..haha! Theyve done that twice to me already, I hope no threepeats for my latest love! πŸ™‚

    I intended to try the Lily Cole blush but the SA suggested this line to be more suitable for my skin type which is oily and the shade was recommended to me by the artist. They initially gave me a cool toned plum pink but is aid I’ve just purchased a blush of the same color and this was their next suggestion, just a little bit more rosy and less cool pink tone. If there was one beauty shop I’d have to live with, it would be body shop for all the skin care, toiletries, make up and scents that are fool proof and nature friendly πŸ™‚ When I first loved make up, I was a The Body Shop only kind of girl. Then an itch for addiction has come over me until I discovered more brands which are great for my skin. However, first and forever, my heart is yours, The Body Shop..hihi!

    On pan it looks like any average blush. Clear packaging to see the color easily and easy to bring anywhere. When swatched, the pan feels very solid and as if super packed with the finely milled powder. Not much fall outs when using this with my EH oblique blush brush. No unnecessary scents and the powder feels so light and natural. I love how the color blends so wellon my skin and makes it look so smooth. Even if I use this over a shimmer face powder or a very thick powdery face, the blush looks so well blended into my skin. I’m also not afraid to use this on my skin sans primer because The Body Shop products never gave me unwanted skin reactions.

    excuse the weird face but can you see how natural this looks on light make up? I’ll update on how this looks for an evening thing πŸ˜‰

    The color on pan is really close to the color on skin, only it’s transparent enough for your skin to breathe and look really WELL BLENDED. No powdery/ashy faces here. This is a very rosy shade that looks matte on pan but kind of glowing or dewy on the face. It also doesn’t look flat, when darker towards the temples, it gives a great contour effect πŸ™‚ The SA told be that this is a great blush cause I would only need a little for the pigment to show and even if the color I got is light pink, the pigment does show very well. She also said that this is a long lasting color but considering my oily skin, its rather average on me. Lasts better than the others but considering the price, I’m expecting it to πŸ™‚ make this blush last longer and I shall hoard and never again look for another..haha! πŸ˜‰

  • I feel like it contains so little of an amount..or maybe I’m just scared of running out of it..haha!
  • does not last me “Long” as it claims
  • a lot of pretty colors (and matchy stuff like powder and BB cream) which are so tempting I wanna collect!
  • This is one of my current favorite and my choice for a fresh pink blush especially on days I need an instant dash of pretty! πŸ™‚ at night I use this with a contour and highlight powder to add an oomph! but I wear this alone or over cheek tint during the day πŸ˜‰
