REVIEW: ELLANA MINERALS BLUSH in HappineSS

Photobucket
thoughts & disclaimer: i will always keep an interest in ellana minerals just because they do sell quality mineral makeup at an affordable price and it's filipino.  plus the fact that to me they are accessible since megamall is a stone's throw away from where i work.  even my office mates have caught the ellana bug and have ordered samples from their site. so visit their site and see how simple it is to get samples from this company ;-)  now for the post LOL.

Since up to now my tangerine collection is yet to be completed and currently [and still] i'm all over the corally-orangey ~ tangerine shades, i was only too peachy keen to have purchased this from the Ellana kiosk at the sm megamall bldg b hyper mart area.
Photobucket
it has three hole sifter from which the powder can come out.  i opted to just have two open and moved the tape that covers it to the side but still covering one of the holes.
Photobucket
swatched
Photobucket
on the orangey side, yes? like the cream choux in #2.  this one has a matte finish
Photobucket
super natural looking and not jaundiced looking on my skin/complexion.
Photobucket
ah it's love at first blush :P
Likes:
  • very inexpensive, PhP180 per 2.5g
  • the finish, it's matte and since it's mineral it helps absorbs my shine and oils throughout the day
  • lasts all day but i'm in an airconditioned environment, haven't tried going outside for a long time LOL, that's just not me :P
  • the shade, it suits my complexion. the coral is warm enough to suit my complexion yet orangey enough to suit my current addiction to tangerine LMAO  and from my recollection the peachy coloring of this happiness shade is an almost perfect dup to the cream choux #2 of the tangerine collection from etude house LOL
  • no scent, this will suit people who are sensitive to scented stuff
  • the veil looking finish, yes it's matte but since it's also a mineral product it gives some sort of coverage but the coverage is natural looking and you can still see my skin.
  • very easy to apply with my baby kabuki fr theBalm
Dislike:
  • as with all mineral makeup, the nature of mineral makeup is my dislike.  it can be messy.  to think she only put in 3 holes for the sifter it can still scatter within the area above the sifter so i need to be careful in opening the lid
by the way, she accepts online orders for those who are too far away fr the sm branches from her website you can check out, too, if she ships internationally, so check out her site ellanaminerals.com

have you tried anything from Ellana Minerals lately?

ey there, thanks, i love how i can pile it on and it wouldn't look cakey or too much parin ;-)

Marge said...

aaayyyyy!!!! ang ganda! happiness talaga! i like it! i'm into coral shades din lately! I feel like it compliments my skin tone... i have tried their samples and I like it, saang branch pa merong ellana? medyo malayo sakin ang megamall e.... i've always wanted to get a few stuff from them but I don't want to order online because I might get the wrong shade.... you are right, i also love mineral makeup, downside lang talaga is messy siya.....

SM Mega, SM Makati, and Marikina
http://www.facebook.com/ellana
or baka mali ang intindi ko may nagtanong kasi kung meron sa SM masinag tas ang sagot ni ahteh SM Marikina is the nearest...good luck ;-)

Marge said...

waahh, megamall pa rin pinakamalapit for me! hehe.....sana magkaron sila sa sm north or trinoma! winner talaga and super affordable!

Marge said...

yeh otherwise talagang order online na lang. yung 50 na shipping fee isipin mo na lang na pamasahe at hassle sa iyo. so i'd choose to order online tas pay via gcash in this case ;-) ahead ka parin ☺♥
