Review : Melliesh Face Cheek Color 01September 16, 2012
Melliesh brand has been around for a while but I only have chance to get my hand on their product now, because it's not available locally and not so many online shops that sell it in Indonesia :( Lucky me that Onikchan Shop offers pre order shop of Japan products so I can place my order there :D
Melliesh Cheek Color is the powder blush to create a lovely expression, like the model in the Popteen magazine Kanno Yui. The color of Melliesh cheek color lively and smooth in texture.The different color can give you a sophisticated pink glitter. Melliesh can give you a natural and sweet look every day, no doubt it is a big success in Japan!
Let's start with packaging review, as always ;)
Japanese drugstore packaging has tendency to create bulky and eye catching box packaging, but they always lack on the product packaging itself, I wonder why. It's not like I save the box, so I wish they'd invest more money on the product money instead, as the packaging of this blush looks a little cheap for me :/
But the material of the packaging is better than candy doll blush in my opinion [I compare with jap drugstore make up as well], they are bigger and wider as well, so it's worth more money. I love how they make the back of packaging in black, it looks more professional! And also they have transparent cap to make us easier to see the color
It doesn't come with its own brush so if you want to bring it outside, make sure to get your blush brush ready. I usually apply it on the apples of my cheek, smile, and see the round shape on your cheek, place it there! :D
Result & Color :
I got the Melliesh Face Cheek Color in 01, and it's a subtle warm pink with a little shimmer to brighten up face slightly. For me the result is really nice! It's neither too light nor too pigmented, it just gives the right amount of blush that I need on everyday basis!
I hate how candy doll is too light and needs a lot of swipes on cheek to get the color, and I also have to be careful with NARS & use it lightly otherwise I will put too much color on my cheek. Melliesh is just perfect! :D
Unfortunately I experience that the color doesn't last long :( It goes off after 2 hours, therefore I recommend you to bring it inside your make up pouch for touch up, or use cream blush before this blush on to make it last longer!
It comes in 6 colors to choose from and I'm really interested to try no 5 for contouring next!! ;D
Where I Got It & Price :
I got them through Onikchan Shop, one of the best an trusted seller in Indonesia :) Price is Rp 235.000 each, and it's quite expensive compared to Japan price that's only around 15USD :( but if you don't live in Japan, obviously the price is much higher than the original price so yeah
Final Opinion :
- Gives the right amount of color on cheek
- Subtle warm pink color, compliments most of skin tone nicely
- Contains a little shimmer to brighten up face
- Comes in 4g product, quite big compared to other japanese blushes
- The packaging looks a little cheap
- Doesn't last long
- Expensive outside Japan
Overall I think the blush is great for everyday use because it gives the perfect amount of color that I've always been looking for! Although the price is quite high in Indonesia :(
But if you're into japanese cosme, I'm sure this product will be your must have collection besides Dolly Wink and Candy Doll ;)
