This entry is way long overdue. Kats of burningskyy.blogspot.com asked me to do a review of the Nichido Cheek Mousse, which I showed on my Watsons haul.
Naturally, I got excited when I saw someone requested that I do a review. It gives my blog entry a purpose of some sort. HAHA But then again, I’m no make-up expert so I kind of put this entry on hold. Bear with me ladies as I’ll try my best to share my honest opinions in the best way I can.
So this is how it looks like. Small and handy.
I believe there are 3 shades of this thing. I got the Plum Brulee as it blended with my skin tone better. And I don’t like hot pink color on my cheeks.
Nichido Cheek Mousse Product Review And Swatch
The important part: swatching (taken without flash). It’s very pigmented and glittery. Dab just about 3 times already gives you a nice finish.
On my face: Maybelline BB Cream, Faceshop lipgloss, and Nichido Cheek Mousse.
– Inexpensive (regular price of Php168 but I got it for 50% off).
– Glass container doesn’t look cheap at all.
– I like the color. Not so pinkish and gives just about the right oomph to my rather boring and pale face.
– Rich, cream-like consistency.
– Smooth and easy to apply, you don’t need a brush / sponge.
– Mousse or cream, as opposed to loose blush powder, makes it unhygienic to apply. You have to dip your finger into the pot.
– Easily rubbed off (doesn’t last long in my face… a good 3 to 5 hours max)
Although this is not a popular brand for cheek mousse, I think it’s still good for daily use as the quality is good. Get the Plum Brulee shade if you want to achieve that mature-ish, grown-up look. This is best for less oily types to avoid rubbing off and reapplying.
Will I repurchase? Maybe. But as of now, I still have my Maybelline blush to finish (Though they test on animals, I still opted to finish Maybelline. Check my entry here to get what i mean).
Available at Watsons.
