I can't remember the last time I purchased a blush. I'm pretty sure it was during the first or second quarter of this year but I really forgot. So when I saw this blush for sale, I immediately MINE'd it and now it's with her sister blushes. To show you how pretty this blush is, here are photos.
I actually like the packaging. It reminds me of Shu Uemura's compacts only this one is square with silver flower prints and less flimsy. This one's pretty sturdy and thick. The dome-shaped blush, on the other hand, reminds me of Chanel Joues Contraste blushes. But I'm pretty sure this one isn't baked.

As with all Japanese blushes, this one is no exception when it comes to texture. It is finely milled and goes on smoothly. It also applies sheer but it is in a way pigmented (not the NARS type of pigmentation though). The pigmentation of this one is somehow a hybrid of Shu Uemura Glow On P Pink 30 and Shiseido Majolica Majorca RD255. But when it comes to shimmer, this will definitely win without a doubt. This is so soft and silky and has very fine silver shimmers that doesn't scream shimmers as it's more of a pearlescent glow. I guess that's why it is named peach pearl. It is definitely not chalky nor powdery. The only prob I have with this one is the lasting power, which I think is 3-4 hours tops. I applied it this morning at 10am and it was gone by 2pm given that the temperature is not as hot as it usually is. I'm thinking, can this withstand the normal humidity when summer comes? I'm not that confident about that but nevertheless, this is a really pretty blush and I would recommend this for those who wants to try Japanese blushes at a lower cost since this is incredibly cheaper as compared to other brands like Shu Uemura, Shiseido, and Kanebo.
Swatch - I only swiped my finger once and I was able to get this enough pigment.
Remember I mentioned earlier it reminded me of Chanel JC's? :)
By the way, I watched the movie RED. It rocks! I <3 Bruce Willis! :P
Happy Sunday, everyone! :)
