Blush collection #1

Today I am going to share my current blushes that I own. Maybelline Expert Wear Blush in Rose (I got this almost a year ago) which is actually my first blush. I absolutely hated it. It looked great when I swatched it in the store but on my cheeks there wasn't much colour pay off, it does has a slight fragrance in it, kinda chalky + it doesn't lasts long even when I use alot of it. It looks okay on real life, you can see that you have it on but on photos you can't actually tell if you had any blush on. This is more of a natural blush for those fair girls out there. So I don't have much to talk about it but here's some photos of it. .___.

You can clearly tell I didn't use much of it .___.  

COLOUR - Blusher #Light pink 
ELF - Pink Passion
Etude House - Lovely Cookie Blusher #2 Rose Cookie
MAC Limited edition Archie's Girls Blush - Cream Soda

Colours : image
Colour - Cute light pink! ^__^
ELF - Hot Pink on pan , baby pink on cheeks when blended out. (possible dupe of Candy Doll, Strawberry Pink)
Etude house - Peachy pink. Really cute for the natural look! 
MAC - Natural Peach, perfect for natural look. 

Pigments : 
Colour - Doesn't lasts very long, very light on my cheeks + not very visible on camera. 
ELF - Super pigmented! Little goes a long way. 
Etude house - Pigmented! Very natural when blended out, buildable
MAC - Super Pigmented. *___* Super pretty on cheeks, buildable. SMOOOTH. 

Packaging : 
Colour - Plasticky with an annoying blush cover. Pretty cheap quality, mini. 
ELF -  Alike MAC's blushes, it has a cute mirror with it ! Light and pretty compact however it doesn't come with a brush. 
Etude house - Princess-y, plasticky, cute! + the puff makes it more adorable! (I do not use the puff however I prefer using it with a blush brush cause I find it more hygenic)
MAC - Plasticky but sturdy. Round with a print of betty one it! Chick + cute. 

Where to get? :  image
Colour - I got it as a present in a pack during Christmas so I have no idea where you can get this >.<
Etude house - This is actually discontinued in store so maybe you might be able to get it online somewhere. Idk. 
MAC - It's no longer available on their website but you can purchase it off ebay/amazon/online. 

Favourite? : 
I can't actually pick cause the blushes have each of their specialty. My favourites would be the MAC and the Etude house cookie blush! I'm currently loving the natural blushes, but when I want a bit of pink on my cheeks I would use my ELF + MAC. Never too much blush for one girl! + I would recommend the MAC, ELF and Etude house blush for those girls were wondering! ^___^ 

Hope you enjoyed reading my first blush collection. If I ever hit pan on any of the blushes, I might consider purchasing a new one ;)  Thanks for reading!

Bunnyfuldays Blog Sale Haul

I knew Bunnyfuldays from a giveaway she held almost a year ago? and I was one of the winner. Omg come to think of it I have no idea what her name is but I'll just call her by Bunnyfuldays :3 She is currently having a Beauty and Clothing Blog Sale (UK ONLY) which has a few beauty products that I have been eyeing on. So now I paid for products I might use for a cheaper price. ;D She offers Asian and also Western beauty products ! ^__^ The products I purchase were used a couple of times however I found them to be clean. You can tell they were used (hey, you're paying lesser for it) however I am very pleased with the blushes! ^___^ + she's so nice as well!!

Pretty pink plastic bag thingy + Bubble wrapped safely! ^__^

Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher - #2 Rose Cookie £3.00
 Tony moly Brusher Ribbon Puff (FREE)
E.L.F. Studio Blush - Pink Passion £1.60 (Shipping UK £1)
(I reckon these are the right prices, I bought these products from her ages ago)

The puff of the Cookie blush was used so she gave me a new one for free, which was awesome of her! ^__^ This is more or less closest to the exact colour of the blush.

The elf's pink passion's actual colour is more of the picture taken indoors so don't worry, it's not that hot pink! 
This is the older version of the Cookie blush from Etude house. I did read some reviews of a comparison on the new + old versions and apparently the older version lasts much longer.  

Time for the swatches.

Now here's a mini review on how I think of them. 

Both the elf and the etude house is really really pigmented. A little goes a long way + depending on what look you're going for and how much you apply. I can't say it lasts all day cause I do touch my face and I do not apply alot. Both are matte blushes. I am a huge fan of matte blushes. ( ̄▽ ̄)
ELF - Hot Pink on pan , baby pink on cheeks when blended out. (possible dupe of Candy Doll, Strawberry Pink)
Etude house - Peachy pink. Really cute for the natural look! 

Packaging : 
I love both blushes in their own unique way of packaging! ^__^ 
ELF -  Alike MAC's blushes, it has a cute mirror with it ! Light and pretty compact however it doesn't come with a brush. 
Etude house - Princess-y, plasticky, cute! + the puff makes it more adorable! (I do not use the puff however I prefer using it with a blush brush cause I find it more hygenic)

Shipping : 
QUICKKKK! Arrived 2-3 days. ^__^

Overall : 
I love and adore these blushes to the max. Etude house's cookie blush is used more of a everyday cutesy look (my boyfriend actually noticed it and he said it looked very nice ^__^) while I use the ELF blush when I want a little pop up dolly look. I usually use my MAC-Cream Soda blush to tone down the pink a little if I apply too much + they work really well together. Bunnyfuldays was lovely to be purchasing from! 

Recommend? : Yupp if you're looking for cheap blushes to try! As for bunnyfuldays blog sale? YESSS!  

Blog sale is available UK ONLY.
