A totally back dated post. Oops.
Guerlain Sakura Blush, TheBalm Down Boy, Etude House retractable blush brush and Posh blush brush has been my to-go blush combo and tools ever since I purchase both blushes at almost the same time, because they complement each other and I like the soft glowy pink cheeks it gives me.
Guerlain Blanc de Perle Blush G Sakura Cherry Blossom Blush
On it’s own?
Sheer and shimmery. The colour hardly shows up on me if I were to use any soft blush brush, like Lunasol’s Cheek Brush. Need a denser and stiffer brush. Yeah, that’s where the retractable, soft but scratchy Etude House blush brush comes into picture. Slide half the way up till it forms a denser brush head, sweep across the Sakura blush, and gently
scratch sweep it on your apples of your cheeks. Then take a fluffy blush brush, sweep across the Sakura blush and lightly brush along your cheekbones. You get stronger colour on the apples of your cheeks with a light flush of colour on your cheekbones. Repeat if you find the colour still too sheer for your liking.
A wordy post. Because er… I still haven’t edit the bulk of pictures laying in my PC/ phone. Digging some out from Instagram
New job! Was really excited because I took the plunge and hooboy am I glad I did!
Update: As per Beetrice’s comment, I totally forgot that we had a #evurl gathering. Blame it on my poor memory! I won’t forget 2013′s one though!!!

I have no love for this polish at first. I find the formula a little too thick and gloopy for my liking, and the brush didn’t fan out nicely as I had hope it would. I need to do 3 thin coats and wait for it to dry in between, otherwise I’d see bubbles forming. It leaves a bit of brush strokes too, if you are not careful. In short, the polish takes a bit of effort to work with. And it doesn’t help that I don’t see the duochrome shift that was shown on the bottle.
However, as days goes by, I find myself liking the colour more and more, despite my initial dislike towards the formula and brush. I love that it makes my feet look clean and fair, and I don’t think I have such teal green polish in my stash either.
If only the formula was better and there’s no staining upon removal, that’d be great!
