I was planning to write this post later, but I’m so in love with this blush that I have to share my thoughts about it with you: I’m talking about the Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher! This blush is from Skinfood’s spring collection from this year and considering the point that new products appear out of nowhere every month this might already be considered old and not up-to-date, but nevertheless this is my new everyday blush since I received this from KollectionK one week ago ♥
Skinfood is one of these brands which are competing with Etude House in terms of design – in my opinion at least. It is a Korean brand with vintage appearing design of their products which occupied my heart very quickly. The products are using the beneficial effects of ingredients, which are familiar to us in terms of “food” like vegetables and fruits. Their motto “Food that is good for your health, is also good for your skin.” reflects this brands’ ideology nicely. Their spring make-up collection of 2014 was called “Milky Rose” and the design of the products offered within this collection is beautifully selected, showing vintage-style rose drawings and pastell pink packaging. The design is really beautifully chosen and fits perfect for a spring collection. Apart from the Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher liptints, nailpolish, make-up remover and a make-up fixer were offered.
The Rose Essence Soft cream Blusher is available in 6 different shades. I picked No.6 called “Edge Rose”. According to the promotional pictures it is probably the boldest color of the 6 shades. Let’s look at our beauty again from the top and the back:
The back side contains a short description and the number of the shade. It also has the production date printed on it. If you open up the lid you’ll find that the complete backside of the lid contains a large mirror, which is very convenient. The material of the container is made of sturdy plastic and although the color of the plastic is a light pink it doesn’t appear like cheap quality. The lid closes properly, too, and will not easily flip open, so it is safe to carry in the handbag. The first thing you’ll notice when opening the container is the scent: it is AMAZING! It smells of roses and you know that I’m a lover for rose scent. If you hate scents, you’ll not like the product, if you love the scent of roses get yourself one of these quickly! I’m so in love with the scent that I sometimes only open up the container of the blush to smell the scent XD …okay, that’s a bit weird, but anyways….
The blush itself is a cream blush, so it has a soft and creamy texture which is easily to apply with only using the fingers (this might be considered as not hygienic for some of you and is the only negative aspect of this blush that I could find after all). I don’t have any problem applying it with my fingers. By the way, for those of you that are afraid of putting bacteria on your face when using your fingers I found a super interesting product on Wishtrend called “OMG Spray it” from Chica y Chico which allows you to sanitize your products frequently (if you consider to buy it you have to check out the Promotional Wishtrend codes for October, because you can receive a free Klairs Be Clean Soap!!). Back to the Skinfood Rose Essence Soft Cream Blusher: the pigmentation is great, it is buildable but also blendable super easily, too, so you can choose by yourself if you want pigmented cheeks or only a light color. Also, the creamy texture turns into a matte one when blended in. It looks very natural and lasts all day. So, as you see this is a super quality blush and I’m really thinking to get all the different shades, because it is so georgeous. You can get this at KollectionK for 11.08 US$.
