Parcel Arrived ! Part 2: Blusher & Finishing Powders

Continue from Part 1

Initially, I was a bit in dilemma should I choose a blusher or All Over Radiances? When I browse through every single colors in cheek and all over radiances, I found this ! Ditto 'O' is similar to NARS Orgasm! How I can let it slip out from my fingers!? After hearing so many great reviews on NARS Orgasm, I just want to have it!

I'm wearing it today. This is my first time using loose powder blusher, thus I have no idea how much should I be using. I'd put it on little by little and the color came out similar to my PUPA Baked Blush. In fact, I've never seen NARS Orgasm in real thing, so I also don't know how it looks like. Still, I'm pretty like this color but don't be heavy handed since the color is quite intense.

When comes to selecting Finishing Powder, I also caught in dilemma because I want to try on both Flawless Finish and Pure Silk. At the end, I'd chose Flawless Sand just because the description wrote it's suitable for dry / combination skin. I'm using this finishing powder today, not seeing any special effects but I think is because I'm using it with very little light hand. I'll try it again some other days.

After I have selected and placed my order with I went to, ParisB raved about the Sand Silk Finishing Powder and I know I have to get this if the Flawless Finish in Sand didn't give me any problem. To my surprise, the lovely llyncia from Lovingminerals sent a sample size of Sand Silk to me as a free gift from adding their facebook. Thank you llyncia!

According to the website, this Pure Silk in Sand Finishing Powder is made from real silk powder. Sounds tempting...

  1. They both sound very nice!
    Haha, I'm always horrible at using a loose powder as blush XD

  2. val_chante: Hahaha... me too, I just couldn't apply them evenly. I tried it today again, the color is nice but still uneven on left and right cheeks... haha.. n i realised the blush powder is fine milled enough to apply on eyelids. Just don't know is the ingredients safe as an eyeshadow or not.

    ning*star: yes, they are pretty... I'm quite satisfied with my purchases...

  3. Oh, i'd love to NARS blushes too... but i might skip on Orgasm and bag Matahari instead :)
