I didn’t review any blushes for quite a while. Time to change this again :D Here is my review for Holika Holika Love Fantasy Blush No.01. This bush is available in 5 shades in total. By the way, I’m sorry for the lack of posts recently, but I’m working on my thesis at the moment. I’ll be done in about a week, so stay with me, I have some really nice upcoming reviews (^_^).
Somehow, I rarely buy any cosmetics from Holika Holika. Although they have quite a couple of things I would love to buy. This blush comes in a small metal jar. First of all, the packaging is beautiful and super girly. The tiny jar is so cute, you have to fall in love with it, when you are a fan of pink and ornamented items XD.
The jar is sealed with a sticker with the color of the blush written on it. This one is a pink blush.
When you open it, you’ll discover that a cute puff with an attached bow is included inside the blush.
The puff is super soft and feels smooth on the skin. The actual blush is separated by a clear plastic foil from the puff.
As you can see, the blush has a nice ornament imprinted on it. It consists of three colors. All of them are different pink shades.
Below you can see a swatch on my arm. As you can see it is not pigmented. I applied it with the included puff and with a brush, but there is not much difference. the color stays very subtle.
Apart from the lack of pigmentation (which could be a pro for those who want a soft blush effect), another downside for me is the metal jar. The lid doesn’t close properly anymore after the sealing sticker was removed. Normally I would say that it has the perfect size for travelling, but in this case, since the lid keeps opening, I wouldn’t dare to put it inside my bag…
