Banila Co. bon voyage Cream Blusher in 01 Sunset Glow

Today I am going to review my third and last item from the Banila Co. summer 2010 line. I have already reviewed the eyeshadow palette and a lipstick from their line in previous posts, and I have saved the most remarkable product for last.



The Bon Voyage Cream Blusher is a part of the nautical line of the Africa collection. Banila Co. has two versions this year, one with a pink leopard print, and one with nautical print.

I picked the colour in Sunset glow.

The packaging is just as pretty as the lipstick I have, with fresh-looking white tube with red and blue stripes.

Opening the blusher, I was in for a suprise. I thought it would be the same concept as the NARS multiple sticks, or any other stick-like blusher. It is not! It has a pump-like flacon that is both hygienic as convienient. The content is 17 ml.

It is not super-original way of providing blush, as By Terry and Armani have similar pumplike flacons, but it is still quite good.

The colour that comes out is a neutral pink with some golden idirescence. It is not quite the Sunset Glow I had in mind, although a sunset can turn out pink as well

Something more remarkable than the pump flacon for blush, is the texture. It has a similar feel as primer does. Or, the Smashbox-type of primers. Normally a liquid blush is either watery (Benefit Benetint) or milk/lotion like (By Terry and Armani). I have never encountered a liquid blush with a silicon-like feel. That somewhat makes it perfect for the skins that are not so perfect.

Blush blended out:

The only downside, to me, is that is is quite sheer when blended out. Perhaps I mind this because with the summer my skintone has been a bit darker, so it might look more obvious when I will become a pale person again ;D.

I think it is possible to layer a bit for more colour, as the texture makes it easy to put another layer on.

I bought mine on gmarket from seller 바닐라코.

Wow this blush blended out to be very pretty, looks like cheek tint from Benefit :). I think with liquid blush you should blend it thick then put a layer of powder on top.
