Location Bought: Watson's SM Hypermart
Approximate Date Bought: September 2010
Packaging: If memory serves, Shawill has two blush lines, one which comes in silver and black packaging made to look like a cut gemstone (like this blush I'm reviewing now), and another one which comes in circular pink and white packaging.
The difference between the two lines is that the silver and black line has space for a tiny blush brush, while the pink and white line does not.
The brush is completely crap though. But nice effort for a cheap brand.
Color and Pigmentation: 003 is a light, buildable pink that I don't think anyone can overdo. Pigmentation is not too strong or too weak, which makes it a nice product to layer on. It's not evident in the pan, but it has some slight shimmers when applied. Or perhaps luster would be a better term?
Formulation: 003 is scentless and applies decently. The blush powder is not velvet smooth, but it is still easily blendable. This only lasts about 3 hours though. In terms of staying power, I think Careline is still the best among locally available budget blushes.
Actual Usage: The color gives me a very gentle, flushed glow. I like how it lifts my cheekbones and adds a small amount of sharpness to my round siopao face.
