    TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes

    If you spend way too much time scrolling through Pinterest, ooh-ing and ahh-ing at clean room decor and fashion pieces (guilty!), secretly wishing your makeup products have the same minimalistic vibe, TONYMOLY has got you covered! Even if you don’t obsessively scroll through Pinterest (wait.. why not?), but you like things that are aesthetically-pleasing (and you’re a crazy obsessed makeup hoarder (HI FRIEND!)), you’re still going to be obsessed with these. TONYMOLY has a whole range of Pinterest-worthy makeup products, and today I’ll be reviewing one of those – the TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes!

    TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes

    Right?! Was I exaggerating about how beautiful the packaging of these are? Probably. But you have to admit, they’re gorgeous, in like a simple, minimalistic sort of way. The packaging of this entire range of makeup products are inspired by paint swatches (Google TONYMOLY Liptones, those are beautiful as well). Sadly, the names of the shades aren’t as pretty as the packaging, though. There is a total of 7 shades to choose from. I picked out P02 Floria Pink, P03 Wink Coral, and P05 Deep Kiss Lover (this name irks me more than I’d like to admit). If you’re more into cream blushes, they have 4 of those to choose from as well.

    TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes

    These retail for slightly more than $7 a piece, but Jolse has them for a discounted price of $5.61 a pop. There is 4.2g of product, which is quite a lot of product. As a reference, MAC Blushes (with the huge pans and huge price tags!) are 6g each, so these TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes have around two-thirds of the amount that MAC Blushes have. They’re less than a quarter of the price of a MAC blush, though. So much math. These TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes (as with all TONYMOLY products) are made in Korea.

    TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes - P02 Floria Pink TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes - P03 Wink Coral TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes - P05 Deep Kiss Lover

    P02 Floria Pink is a light, cool-toned, baby pink shade that has no shimmer or glitter. I’m in love with this shade because with my warmer undertones, sometimes my face can look a little too warm. Adding a pop of this helps to brighten up my complexion, making me look fresh and awake. P03 Wink Coral is a light peachy shade that has no shimmer or glitter. This, for me, is the perfect MNFBB (My Natural Flush, But Better! nobody says that.) shade. Lastly, P05 Deep Kiss Lover is a burnt coral shade with a slight golden sheen. All these shades do not have glitter in them, the shimmer you see on my cheeks is from my Becca Rose Quartz Highlighter, which now that I think about it, I shouldn’t have put on. Oops!

    These are marketed as “long-lasting, fine powder blushes that go on smoothly as if adding a translucent layer of colour on top of the skin”. The texture of these blushes feels slightly different, depending on the shades. P02 Floria Pink and P03 Wink Coral have an amazingly soft and velvety finish. They give that “translucent layer of colour”  they promise and look very natural on the skin. These have just the right amount of pigment so you don’t have to be afraid of getting clown cheeks. They apply to the skin evenly and doesn’t look patchy or cling on any dry parts. P05 Deep Kiss Lover, however, clings on a little bit to dry skin. I have combination skin so the skin on my cheeks is slightly dry. Not only that, the golden sheen actually causes it to highlight the tiny bumps I have on my cheeks.

    The longevity of these blushes is incredible. Blush is something that I always put on in the morning and by noon, it’s nowhere to be found. However, these are the only blushes that stay put throughout the entire day.

    TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes

    Overall, these TONYMOLY Cheektone Powder Blushes are amazing! They put so much thought into this entire range – the packaging is gorgeous, the colour selection is good, and the formulas of these (well, except P05) are impeccable. They are buttery soft, have just the right amount of pigment and last all day (even on my combination skin!). To top off all the amazing qualities, these are so affordable too. If you want to get these, I highly recommend getting either P02 Floria Pink or P03 Wink Coral (or both!), as they are very universally flattering. I’m in love with these blushes and I’m thinking of getting the other 4 shades, and of course, trying out the cream ones!

    MY SPRING 2013 PICKS: Nail Polish!

    We have officially sprung into March a few days ago (a week ago or so?)! I think Spring and Summer are the favourtie seasons of many! To us Malaysians, it doesn’t really matter though. We have Summer 24/7 but the trends do change I guess.
    Anyway, Spring’s here! It’s time to burst out the colours of the rainbow! Today I’m posting about my Top Picks for Spring 2013! Basically, all the nail polishes are going to be super bright and fun! (I wear colourful nail polishes all year round)
    There’s a good mix of colours and brands (mostly Asian brands though). I will leave all the links to where you can buy them (if I can find it!) So now lets go!
    I would just like to firstly apologise for the grainy pictures because the lighting was terrible. I tried my best to fix it, but my Photoshop skills really fail me.
    1. Etude House Matte Baby Pink
    (3 coats)
    This is from Etude House and is super affordable. I believe this was RM9.90 and it comes in a variety of shades. I really like this one though: it’s a baby pink and the matte finish is beautiful! This shade of pink is a universal shade and can make you look tanner. I love pink: Lips, nails.. everything!
    If you live outside Asia, you can buy it here: Ebay
    If you live in Asia, you can buy it at any Etude House stores!
    2. Elianto Kissy Pink
    (3 coats)
    This was RM5.50 (as with all Elianto nail polishes). This is a cream + jelly = crelly finish nail polish. It applies very sheer (as with all jelly polishes) but it gives a really interesting twist to the classic pink polish. I love Elianto nail polishes and have a bunch of them. I have a post on My Elianto Nail Polish Collection.
    You can buy it here: Elianto’s Website
    3. Essie Made To Honor
    (2 coats)
    This is Essie’s Made to Honor. I won this from a giveaway about a year ago. The little bump on the swatch is because I didn’t swipe the brush well and there was a dried bit on it. This has been my go-to base colour when I’m doing French Manicures. It is absolutely beautiful and since I have a yellow undertone, this doesn’t make my fingers look washed out. Nudes are fit for all year round!
    You can buy it here: eBay
    4. SkinFood Pedicure Sparkle
    (2 coats)
    This is SkinFood’s pedicure sparkle. No idea what this shade is (I can’t read Korean T.T). This is a 1-coater but I added another coat to maximise the sparkle. The picture does not do this polish justice. It’s a REALLY REALLY sparkly blue/green nail polish. It looks like a diamond + mermaid’s tail captured in a bottle colour. SO beautiful and bright! (This does contain Formaldehyde though :/ That’s the downside! AHHH!)
    5. China Glaze in For Audrey
    (2 coats)
    This is China Glaze’s For Audrey. This is also a 1-coater but the swatch shows 2 coats. This is a best-selling polish from CG. It’s a creamy turquoise-teal (i can never differentiate the two?) colour. It’s so pretty! It’s like the perfect Spring/Summer colour and I absolutely adore it!! This is my first ever polish from China Glaze and I LOVE the formula of this one! It’s very creamy and easy to apply.

    6. Color Club Blue Ming
    (3 coats)
    This is Color Club’s Blue Ming. My sister got this in her Birchbox and she sent it to me. It’s a bright mint green colour. This is one of those colours that are so bright that it makes you look tanner. I love the colour and the finish but I don’t like the formula.

    7. TONYMOLY GS08
    (3 coats)
    This is TONYMOLY’s GS08. It’s those type of “jelly-sandwich” polishes. It has a very sheer baby blue base with blue, pink multi-sized glitter. I like to wear this both alone, and on top of any blue base. Eventhough it requires multiple coats, the coats dry very quickly so I don’t mind. This is the closest I can get to an Indie nail polish from Etsy, so.. 🙁
    8. Elianto S01
    (2 coats)
    This is Elianto’s S01. This is also a 1 coater but for the swatch I used 2 coats. It’s a bright.. and when I say bright, I mean BRIGHT yellow colour. It’s a creamy finish and it reminds me of the Sun. Definitely a great colour for Spring/Summer!
    You can buy it here: Elianto’s Website
    9. Etude House Glitter Topcoat
    This is an Etude House glitter topcoat (again, I can’t read Korean so I don’t know what shade this is.) It contains black, white and pink multi-sized & multi-shaped glitter. It’s definitely one of those fun ones that can spice up any of the colours that you’re already bored of. This is one of my favourite polishes as of right now.
    My Favourite Combo for Spring/Summer!: 
    This is Etude House’s Glitter Topcoat topped over Etude House’s Matte Pink. It’s so beautiful and it’s such a pretty combo! It’s so fun and bright yet wearable! I’m SO in love with this!
