The Face shop Lovely me:ex blush in Coral Cushion : the cutest pastel blush in my stash!! Review & Swatch



If you guys know me well, you must know I am a sucker for cute packaging be it lipsticks or blush or perfume, if its cute, I have to have it! When I laid my eyes upon this blush, my heart skipped a beat and I knew that instant I need this in my life ASAP! Well lucky me, I got it as a gift from my brother who happens to be my biggest support in makeup hoarding :-D This is enough for the background story lets jump to the review and pictures 'cause I can't wait.

LOVELY ME:EX BLUSH IN CORAL CUSHION:


Description

-Very easy to use for beginners
-Pastel Shades
- 5 new shades that make you look younger and cute
- Must-have item  - New and trendy container & powder puff
-Pressed porous powder prevents clumping from sweat and sebum

Application

Apply powder on the puff and gently pat onto the apple of your cheek


This blush is available in 5 colors :
Coral Cushion
Rose Cushion
Pink Cushion
Peach Cushion
Plum Cushion

My Experience :

Lately Korean cosmetics have taken the world by a storm because of their super cute packaging and diverse range of colors.Lovely Me:Ex is also a  Korean cosmetics brand that is known worldwide.  For Koreans this turns out to be a drug store brand that is affordable and widely available at The Face Shop counters all over Korea.
This blush comes in the cutest cardboard packaging with pretty colors. The lid is tug open type but it secures nicely. Once opened, there is this cute white puff with a matching ribbon on the top. Let's take a moment to gulp in the beauty of this baby shall we.

Now for the product its self,the blush I got is Coral cushion. It is a pastel blush which  is completely matte. Though I think I see a few shimmer particles in the pan but I guess its just because when applied on face it is completely matte. The product is a bit hard to pick up, I use my RT copy Angled Blush brush (Review Here) to apply this but it comes off chalky and needs layering to get some color to your cheeks. I haven't used the white powder puff provided with it just for the sake of not getting it dirty (its so pretty to look at & I can't imagine making it stained). One of the reasons that its hard to get color is that these cosmetics are made for Korean community, who naturally are fair and need minimal amount of makeup to show on them. For us Asians, our skin tones tend to be darker then them,so we need proper layering. But if you like subtle flush your cheeks, this is the thing for you. I personally like this blush because it gives proper control of how much you apply and can never go over board with this. Once applied, this gives a very fresh & healthy color to the cheeks that can be mistaken for natural color (tried & tested ;-))

  20. The only Korean beauty item I have used till date is the Missha M BB Cream. I wish these Facebook pages take orders for those too once in a while. May be you can involve your brother and start the business yourself :D LOL
    I am just finicky about blush color not getting picked up. That's not just for the cheaper brands though. Both Tarte and NARS had one or two such pieces in my collection :/ I'd be on the lookout for The Face Shop items now :) Thanks for sharing this
