Banila Co Summer 2008: Sun Blessed Face Blusher

I am not that impressed with Banila Co's summer collection entitled Sun Blessed. It contains some nail colors and 2 unwearable (for me at least) lipsticks (super pale and a bright orange) and some bronzing stuff for body and face.

However the zebra-striped Sun Blessed Face Blusher looked quite promising so it ended up on my last Korean shopping list.

This comes in a relatively unexciting plastic case in clear and gold. The powder has 2 colors (light pink and medium brown) arranged as zebra stripes. When you use it you just swirl your brush across the powder and get a pretty soft tan color that's not overly orange.

I like the bronzer because it's quite subtle and only very slightly shimmery and can be layered for more intensity. However I am not a big bronzer person as I love being pale so I will not use this that often except as a blush.

What I don't like is that this produces a lot of loose powder when you swipe the brush across it. So some product is wasted as you just have to tap it off.
The Sun Blessed Face Blusher has a light perfume to it, the typical Banila Co scent. It doesn't bother me but I'd have preferred no fragrance.

This is rather pricey at 18000 Won (US$19) so if you have to pay jacked-up online prices I'd rather say you can skip this. I think I paid somewhere around US$25 which is a tad too much for this product.

All in all it's a pretty decent bronzer or pinkish tan blush but the ugly compact and high price-tag are a bit of a turn-off.
