Product Review: Lovely Me:Ex Pastel Cushion Blusher (02 Coral)

Saturday, April 27, 2013

When I had my birthday shopping day with my two girlfriends last January, Joie bought a cushion blusher from The Face Shop. I restrained myself from buying one since I still have my Maybelline blush-on so I settled with getting myself a lipstick instead. Shucks! I’m so dalaga na talaga! =))

Lovely Me:Ex BB cream has been my best friend ever since we met on October last year. For a noob like me, it’s a good product for daily use. Suffice to say, my face is already hiyang with this line. So a couple of weeks ago, I went back to The Face Shop to get myself my own Lovely Me:Ex Pastel Cushion Blusher. I am not an expert, but allow me to tell you how much I love this product.

1. Not that it matters, but it’s cute. I know that it doesn’t really have a bearing, but I like how it looks like as if it belongs to a 16-year old girl. In a sea of cosmetic products, a striking packaging is needed for something as small as this cushion blusher.

2. It’s compact. When I was still using my mineral blush-on, I had to bring it along with the brush. With the cushion blusher, I already have everything I need in that tiny container.

3. It’s not messy. Every morning, my husband only gives me 1 hour to prepare to work. It already includes breakfast, preparing our lunch boxes, taking a bath and dressing up. For almost two years, I am failing at this. 60 minutes turn into 90, and sometimes even more. So in my attempt to lessen his waiting time, I go out of the house with my hair uncombed and with nothing on my face except the ever-reliable BB cream. I then finish all the things that I needed to do inside the car. My husband finds amusement in hitting the car brake when I’m doing something on my face! For many times, my powder blush gets thrown at the dashboard. Ganyan niya ako kamahal! But now that I’m using the cushion blusher, he can hit the brake as hard as he wants and I won't give a damn. =))

4. It gives the right amount of “blush”. It’s actually perfect for girls like me who are still not familiar with the technicalities of applying makeup. For morenas like me, I suggest you use the 02 Coral as suggested by the lady who assisted me at The Face Shop. Joie also got the same as per Aubrey’s suggestion. The cushion blusher gives the perfect blush which is light enough for daily use, and not the para-akong-sinapak-ng-pitong-tambay-sa-kanto kind of blush. Hahaha! :p

5. It uses a puff, not a brush. When we first saw this at The Face Shop, Joie immediately compared it to… “’Yung ginagamit sa pwet ng baby!” HAHAHAHA!!! Seriously, even if we use the expensive makeup brushes, odds are our skin can still get irritated because of the bristles. But with the puff, a gentle pat on the cheeks can give us the same glow.

Again, I am not a makeup guru. The reason I bought this is because I know that it suits the needs of beginners like me. So if you like a handy blush that is good for everyday use, then the Lovely Me:Ex Cushion Blusher might be the one for you. :)

  1. Oh I have a newly discovered blush on, feeling ko perfect din yun for you and your complexion! Ang ganda nya gamitin (super!) not to mention affordable. It's from BYS, coral din ang color. It only cost around Php200++. Try mo pag ubos na yang blush on mo. :)

    1. Hiyang na rin kasi ako sa TFS. Plus, wala yatang BYS sa mall ko haha :))

  2. Bibili ka din pala!! :) Sabi sayo perfect yan eh. Katulad nung "syet nakalimutan ko na naman yung name ng brand na ni-murder mo!". Basta yun. And the thing is that one is less expensive!! Nasa cream blush na ko girl, ready ka na tlga sa puff blush...ahahahah!

    1. Yung MAJORAY CHORVA?! Haha! Bumili ako kasi na-depress ako, napa-shopping ako ng wala sa oras =)) Wait lang sa cream blush. Sa birthday mo, i-push na yang shopping date na yan! :p

  3. @Sha: I can't hit reply on this blog!! Ewan ko bakit. Anyway, what kind of blush is that? Super mura naman ng 200++. I wanna check it out. Hahahaha.. #kuripotfashionista I'm using Covergirl creme blush. :) I am liking so far kaso may binabagayang lipstick. :)

    1. Hi Aubrey! Yes, murabels lang ung BYS cosmetics. New line of cosmetics itech pero suprisingly good ang quality. Available sya sa SM dept store and watsons, maganda din ung mga lipstick nila. Try mo ung coral blush on lahat ng skin tone binabagayan. Next time i'll try ung eye shadow, maganda din eh not to mention mura!

  4. I also bought this online kasi sale siya. but the thing is, next month pa ma-dedeliver from korea. I also ordered coral kasi parang maganda and yun nga, I read from your blog that it'll suit morena :) Thanks for this helpful review!!
