When Ulta held a (not so) recent beauty steal event, one of the products I decided to pick up is the Japonesque Velvet Touch Blush in shade number 03. This blush normally retails for $22.00 but I was able to snap it up for a mere $11.00. Eleven dollars very well spent, as it turns out.
Look at the box. It goes with my blog, don't you think? *grin*
The packaging. Oh! The packaging! Gentle reader, it is gorgeous. The heavy plastic is smooth, silky and as shiny as a polished piece of agate. The corners are rounded and the compact feels lovely in the hand. This is luxury level packaging for a mid tier makeup product and I love it.
The front view. I can't stand it! Oh! So nice! Just look at that subtle bevel and the rounded corners! You should hear the solid snap! when the packaging is closed. So satisfying.
Have some details. We all need a little information. I need to learn how to photograph shiny packaging without showing the reflection of my camera or self.
Inside the compact is a cake of beautiful pink toned coral blush and a mirror in the inside of the lid.
Japonesque Velvet Touch Blush in 03 and my favorite brush for applying this particular product, my Luxie Lush Large Powder Brush.
A swipe and brush blended swatch on the back of my hand under my OttLight.
The same swatch in direct sun. This lovely pink leaning coral has an ultra fine gold shimmer that gives an instant highlight in the sun or bright light. No need to apply additional highlighter with this pretty stuff. Unless you want to.
Japonesque Velvet touch Blush in 03 is a finely milled, smooth powder that applies and blends in like a dream. There is a little powdery puff up when a brush lands on the cake but there is no fall down on the face upon application. Wear time is good for me with this blush. It wears all day without needing to do touch ups all the time. I had to do a light touch up one day after about eight hours of wear. Colour me impressed. And happy to recommend this beautiful blush to you. If you would like to experience this blush, you can find it here.
Have you tried the Japonesque Velvet Touch Blushes? Do you like? Love? Please do tell.
Thank you so much for reading and have a beautiful day!
