This blog is about all things girly from makeup review, manicure visits to pre-loved clothes sale. Occasionally I'd write something that I shop but not necessary girly stuff :P

My favourite brands include
Majolica Majorca, Zara, Jill Stuart, Maquillage, Etude House, Kitschen & Mary Magdalene. Yes, I do love Japanese brands.

Ettusais Cheek Color in Pink

Got this uber cute blusher from the Shiseido's drugstore brands' warehouse sale at Summit. I know that Ettusais (pronounced as Ettu-say) is not really a drugstore brand as it has counters at Isetan Gardens Mid Valley and KLCC but somehow the brand's products  ended up there.

This blusher has small lamé beads and a very smooth texture. The color is just right as it is not too dramatic or too light when applied. At first I was feeling a little skeptical because it looks matte and I avoid matte blushers at all cost. It was quite a pleasant surprise when the effect was silky with a little shimmer ^_^. It also comes with a cute puff, which is attached at the bottom of the case. The puff can be washed and reused.

There's one thing that needs to be careful of though. Normally, for me, I will apply my blusher from near the nose upwards to the apple of my cheeks in circular motions. But if I use this method with the blusher, the color will become too intense, producing a 'Chinese Opera' effect! So, the trick is to dap the puff lightly on the cheeks instead.

And guess how much it cost? RM25. Yup it's a bargain~! The retail price should be about RM60-70! Oh yea, you can buy the refill to save up on the casing cost! Check out Ettusais SG (no Malaysian site available) for more info.

Quite a dandy casing. I like Ettusais' clean but cute packaging!

On the right is the puff. It was white in color before use :P
