BEAUTY | Review : Too Faced Love Flush

Assalamualaikum and hello.

When I first got these babies, I could not wait to share the review with all of you. Too Faced Love Flush are just adorable and cute, ahhh no words can describe it's cuteness! LOL maybe I'm over the top but like seriously, how can you even use these up? I got these as a birthday present from my darling Samia. Oh girl you spoiled me to bits! Thank you so much for the gestures, I am speechless! Love you babe!

Love Flush is the latest blush by Too Faced. It is said to be long-wearing (16 hours) , fade proof, smudge proof and highly pigmented. Love Flush comes in 6 shades which are Justify My Love, Your Love Is King, How Deep Is Your Love?,  I Will Always Love You, Baby Love and Love Hangover. Firstly I gotta say, Too Faced packaging is always on top. Their quirky, cute and adorable packaging and name (of their products) are always eye-catching. The love shape is definitely romantic and somehow it ignites my lovey-dovey side. *yeah no kidding*

Even the blush itself is super cute! I can't even think about using it because I'm afraid the bunny will dissapear! *hahaha so dramatic!* But seriously, would you use it? :P Let's check out the 3 shades I got.

I Will Always Love You
How Deep Is your Love?
Justify My Love

I Will Always Love You : A peachy shade. More of a satin finish when swatched on my hand/  applied on my cheeks.  
How Deep Is Your Love : A coral-ish pink shade. Gold particles are likely to be seen in the pan but it comes out matte when swatched on my hand / applied on my cheeks.
Justify My Love : A barbie pink shade with gold particles. The gold particles is apparent when swatched on my hand / applied on my cheeks. More of a satin finish.

The texture of these blush are buttery soft. It is pigmented therefore you only need a little. It is buildable and easy to blend out. I do noticed that they are slightly powdery but it's not chalky. They do gives a fresh and glowy finish to the skin. Speaking of the 16 hours of long-wear, I am not sure about that as I do not wear my makeup for 16 hours. Take note that when you swatched on your hands, yes it will disappear within 2 hours. However when I applied them on my cheeks, I must say they stayed on pretty well for at least 5 hours. Maybe the temperature of our hands and face is different due to the oiliness/dryness of the skin (Well I'm not technically sure about this but that's how I feel). The packaging is a definite thumbs up for me because they are simply adorable. The colour range is also good because all 6 shades compliment from fair to darker skin tone. I really think darker skin tones will look amazing by using Justify My Love and Your Love Is King! You girls can check out Too Faced website for the other 3 shades that I did not mentioned here.

Too Faced Love Flush is retailed at RM90 in Sephora Malaysia. I'm not sure whether they have restock these blush because everyone is saying they are nowhere to be found. 

If you are not sure whether to get this or not, I'd suggest try it in the store first, or even buy one to experiment whether they are really worth it. To me they are beautiful and definitely a lovely edition to my makeup collection! :)

Thanks for reading love! ^_^
