Kate´s Cheek Color N has been a staple product for me the previous years and I reaached for one of my 3 colors quite often.
Recently the range was revamped and renamed to Cheek Color S and I got 1 of the colors hoping it would be nice.
The new compact is a little different from the previous version, now with a part made of matte plastic and a slanted shape. The included brush is made of decently soft hair but not as soft as the older version in my opinion..still it will work in a rush or on the go!
The texture is still quite silky albeit a little hard..however the level of pigment is so low it´s quite a disappointment. It shows up if I appy like 5 layers but not really well and I feel the blush has the tendency to disappear after a few hours of wear. The old version was certainly sheer but still workable but I feel the newer Cheek Color S is even sheerer and fade a good deal.
There are 2 shimmery colors in each palette, the larger portion is a lighter and the smaller a slightly darker color. I mix them together as I find it hard to pick up the color from the smaller part alone with my normal face brush as it´s really tiny.
This blush retails for 1300 Yen for 2.7g of product. Not really recommended unless you are searching for a super sheer blush.
The swatch shows about 3 layers of blush but it just wouldn´t show up well!
