We’ve got a serious case of good twin bad twin dynamics going on with the two things I selected from this collection. Since I’m a good news first type of person, I’m going to start by talking about the star of two.
Etude House Lock’N Summer Cushion Blusher
If you’re at all familiar with the cushion delivery system for bb creams (which if you’re a regular reader here, you know I’m a big fan of) then you’ve got the concept for this product down. It’s a liquid blusher with sponge delivery system, applied with a silicone round puff. The formula is perfect for this set up, the blush is a sheer watery liquid that imparts a perfect natural flush on the cheeks. It has a slight dewy sheen that gives a lovely subtle glow. I chose shade PK001 which I absolutely love! It’s a lovely pink that’s not too bubble gum or too garish. This blush is extremely sheer when applied, I wouldn’t recommend it for nighttime but it’s perfect for daytime when you just want that hint of flush. I think the extremely pale skinned folks for which blush tends to run clownish would really appreciate this colour and formula. It gives you a sheer wash of pretty colour without being like “OMG look everyone! Someone punched me in my face with blush!”. The wear time is normal for me, but to be fair, I do not have oily skin. It lasted throughout the day though, the only time I noticed that it didn’t was on a particularly hot day when I walked 10 actual miles, but that’s a hell of a stress test for a product. The lone complaint I have about this blush is the packaging. It has a screw lid and I feel it would have been better suited to a flip top type compact like we see with BB cushions. The product itself is A+ for what it is, the packaging is a let down. The screw lid and plastic separater that this is housed in seems awkward, especially given that they did use the cushion eyeliner in this collection in a compact type package.
Which brings me over to this next nightmare of a product.
