This was actually featured in this month’s Cosmopolitan magazine–well, the entire San San Krisanne Coral Collection exclusively from HBC.
Since my sister and I found the shade pretty (even by just looking at the printed picture on the magazine), I decided to swing by HBC and pop Php 149.00 for the shimmer blush in the shade of Sunrise Walk.
It’s my first time to buy anything from HBC, and with this, my first impression is that I really really loved the shade–especially the gradient effect. The blush has SPF 15 and Vitamin A, C & E. With just 1/3 of the price of the L’Oreal blush that I am currently using, I never hesitated to give it a go.
So when I finally tried it on, I realized the cons of having a php149.00 blush: it actually took me about 6-sweeps EACH cheek to get the pigments visible on my skin versus the one-sweep-a-cheek for my L’Oreal blush. I also noticed that the blush case itself is not as sturdy as my L’Oreal blush. In fact, the casing creaks every time you open the lid–it’s crazy!
Despite the light pigment and cheap blush casing, I really really love the healthy after-gym flush it gives after each 6-sweep-a-cheek. 😉
