Location Bought: Landmark Trinoma or Watsons SM Megamall
Approximate Date Bought: early 2011?
Packaging: If Shu Uemura's glow on and Chanel's Joues Contraste had a secret love child, this would be it. I've never dropped mine, but the clear plastic packaging feels very sturdy and would probably be able to survive a few drops to the floor. The one thing I don't like about Peach Pearl's packaging is the flowers printed around the brand name. I think they ruin the minimalist feel of the entire thing. But oh well, I still like it anyway!
|It looks almost completely hot pink in this shot, doesn't it?|
Formulation: What I like best about this blush is that it has a pretty smooth pearlized finish. It doesn't cheat by adding glitter (or as its name wrongly implies, shimmers) into the mix. No smell either. It's hard to overdo, although I find it a bit difficult to blend.
In Action: In this photo, you can't really see the "glowing effect" a pearlized blush like Peach Pearl is supposed to give. (I tried my best to capture it and this was the best shot, sorry!) But the glow is there in person, and it's a really nice kind of glow, like a "look at me, I'm blooming!" kind of glow.
I've read some things about this blush being similar to Shu's glow ons. I'll explore that more when I get around to reviewing my own glow on in the near future.
