Hello everyone, this Summer, Lunasol has released another blush – the Glowing Powder Cheeks in EX 03 Pure Coral Pink. Personally, I adore blushers with a good mix of orange and pink because I find them a lot easier to match my choice of lipsticks.
Despite the lack of originality in packaging and uniqueness in colour from my last purchase, I have decided to give this product another chance.
The packaging is exactly similar to Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks in EX 02 Pure Pink (reviewed here) released earlier this year. Not sure if it’s just mine but the cover fits rather loosely, I can’t pick up the product from the top because the cover will fall off. Does yours fit loosely too?
The blush is divided into two portions equally with a soft shimmery baby pink on the left and soft shimmery coral on the other.
Swatches below taken under natural lighting, without flash on dry arm. We have the pink on the left, followed by the coral and the third swatch shows both colours mixed together.
Below, I have the pink from EX 03 Pure Coral Pink (left) swatched beside EX 02 Pure Pink (right). As you can probably tell, they are quite similar but I find EX 02 Pure Pink a little more pigmented. This similarity makes me wonder if the coral side will be similar to EX 01 Pure Coral?
Like Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks in EX 02 Pure Pink, the texture is ultra-fine and adheres to the skin beautifully – almost cream-like. This blush doesn’t bears any particular scent as well. This colours also have decent colour payoff and blends evenly on the skin. It can be layered on for more intensity.
In the above picture, I am wearing EX 03 Pure Coral Pink without any base. It’s natural and subtle when applied lightly.
Bottom line, a nice blush with illuminating effects but for the price, I might not even look into purchasing another blush from this series unless the colour is very unique.
Lunasol Glowing Powder Cheeks in EX 03 Pure Coral Pink retails at S$60 for 6g of product, made in Japan.
Thank you for reading.
