Review - Missha Lipstick and Blush

Here is the review of the other two Missha items i bought at the boxing day sales. There really isn't much you can say about a blush and lipstick so i've combined the two reviews.

First up  i got the sweet line blusher in No. 2 Fresh Cot, its a pressed powder in a mixture of three colours: peach, orange based bronzer and a white highlighter. You can also get it in a pink based one and a multi coloured one. I just chose the peach one because it suits my skin tone better then pink based ones.

One thing i love about this blush is it doesn't have any sparkles, Its more just the fact that i already look very young for my age and i feel make up with sparkles and glitter make me look even younger.

The mirror in the compact is decent, so you can use it for touch ups, but i wouldn't use it for eye liner or anything delicate, its not really good enough for that. One issue with the case is the super sharp corners on the bottom clasp. So be careful when opening it!!

The puff that comes with it is super soft and cute, and is fine to use to apply the powder. The powder doesn't give you an intense colour, which is why there isn't a swatch. So you might have to apply a little more then you think. I actually think this is a plus, as you can slowly build up the colour.

The lipstick i bought from Missha is from their Creamy Matte lip rouge range, BE01. I have been looking for a nice nude lipstick for awhile and this one was a nice colour on me.

All lipsticks in this range have a really nice fruity smell, somewhat like watermelon. The lipstick itself is a creamy texture and has a little moisture, so there's no need to apply lip balm underneath.

However, like all matte lipsticks it does have a tendency to creep into your lip lines. so make sure your lips aren't dry or cracked before putting this on. The lipstick does tend to dry out and wear off after awhile though, maybe after an hour or so. So its a good idea to put a moisturising lip balm on top.
