Blush of the Week: Holika Holika Aqua Petit Jelly Blusher 01

awww so cute! as you can see below
in real life it's actually more pink than it is peachy ;-)
swatched and blended on the back of my hand. and yep, just this morning i used it with that stippling brush fr lumiere minerals.
la lang i just wanted to show i have the shade 01 LMAO
depending on how much i put on and on the light it can be a light pink

or a slight peach
and the face of the week

over all for a cream or gel blush i find this to be very handy, pigmented, lasting, and sweet smelling.  if you put enough there's some sheen but quite subtle.  what i do for some sheen is top it off with a little nars orgasm and it's set the whole day, no transfers, no sliding off.
Likes:
  • the shade, it's just the right pink, not too shocking but not too blue in tint that it looks too dolly-face at least on me.
  • cream/gel consistency that's very easy to apply than the cheek stains that dry too quickly which makes tints difficult to blend
  • the way the packaging looks like.  it's unique and cute
  • the scent.  it's a little like strawberry with a hint of vanila.  yummm ;-) ♥
  • lasting even on an oily to combination skin type like mine
  • has not given me new black or white heads or millia ;-)
Dislikes:
  • the packaging, over all - in a tub like that where your first instinct is to dip your finger in it to get to the blush
  • oxidizes a little bit so depending on your color preference or principle i put this under a dislike.  the bright pink like the elf's pink lemonade all over cover stick kind of pink turns more peachy after a few hours.
  • not available locally but can be ordered thru my trusted multiply seller Charmaine - of Kkochipida on multiply
Do I recommend? sure, specially if you're a fan of CNBlue and a fan of cream blushes
Will I repurchase? I'm thinking about the other shades.
