Just because Valentine’s Day is over, doesn’t mean we can’t break out the soft pinks and browns and do a sweet, girly look, right? Sweet makeup looks revolve around beautifully “pinched” cheeks, girly pink lips, soft eyes and glowy skin. Hermo, an online beauty retailer here in Malaysia, has exclusively brought in two L’Oreal products that aren’t available on Malaysian shores, and they are running an amazing deal on it that started on February 12th and is only going on for a couple more weeks (ends 12th March 2016)!
Like the title suggests, the two products exclusive to Hermo (which aren’t available anywhere else!) are the L’Oreal Cushion Glow Blush and the Glam Shine Balmy Gloss. The Cushion Glow Blush is, you guessed it, a “cushion-type” product just like the numerous BB Cushions out there in the market now, but for blush! The Glam Shine Balmy Gloss is one of those chunky lip pencils that you twist up and apply.
There are 3 colours of the L’Oreal Glam Shine Balmy Gloss to choose from – #101 Rose Petal (which is the one I have), #102 Juicy Grape (a berry pink), and #103 Pinky Cherry (a deeper pink). #101 Rose Petal is a super cool-toned medium lilac pink colour. This type of colour isn’t the best for my medium, yellow-undertone skin as it washes me out, but it would look amazing on cooler skintones!
The formula of this is amazing! I remember I used to love these Jumbo Lip Pencils because they are so easy to wear. This one is no exception – the formula glides on the lips smoothly, distributing a sheer colour (that builds up with multiple layers) evenly across the lips, and finishing it off with a gorgeous glossy shine! This is very hydrating on the lips and feels just like a lip balm, with great pigmentation. This does transfer when you eat and drink though, so reapplying after a couple of hours is a must, as with any of these slippery, balmy glosses. This retails for only RM23.90 on Hermo, and is ending in a couple of weeks, so if you’re a huge fan of tinted balms with glossy finishes, don’t forget to grab these!
Now this is the product I’m super excited to show you guys – the L’Oreal Lucent Magique Cushion Glow Blush. I have the shade #C1 Sunkissed Coral, but it also comes in two different shades, #P2 Pink Fantasia (a medium neutral pink), and #P3 Rose Affair (a lighter, cooler pink). You know I LOVE my BB Cushions so it’s no surprise that I’m really into this Cushion Blush as well!
#C1 Sunkissed Coral is a gorgeous creamy neutral peachy-pink blush that doesn’t have any shimmer or glitter, but it gives THE MOST AMAZING GLOW! I have combination skin, so my T-zone is oily, but my cheeks are super dry and sometimes even has dry patches on it. This blush, is super lightweight and hydrating that it doesn’t cling on to the dry skin at all. It also has this beautiful sheen that gives the entire complexion a very healthy glow.
This is super lightweight, it doesn’t look or feel greasy on the cheeks, and lasts a good few hours. Pair this with the Glam Shine Balmy Gloss and some mascara on the eyes, and you’re ready to head out the door, looking glowy and gorgeous! Because it is a cushion compact, it’s very portable and you can reapply anywhere with the air puff that’s included.
This retails on Hermo for RM49.90, and again, is only going on for the next couple of weeks. I’m definitely thinking about picking up the other two shades because these are so amazing! If you’re in the market for a lightweight, glowy blush, these are the way to go!
These are only available for a couple more weeks, so pick them up when you get the chance to! I highly recommend the L’Oreal Cushion Glow Blush if you want something easy to apply, and super glowy and gorgeous. I’ve been reaching for it pretty much every day!
