The Muse’s Mail Bag: Bihada Ichizoku Cheek Blush Review and Swatches
Peeping into the mail bag today I got a few requests and questions on the Bihada Ichizoku items I’ve been reviewing.
Kelly from Washington writes,
I really like your reviews on Bihada Ichizoku. My friend was telling me that cosmetics are also available with this range but I only see you reviewing the skincare. Is it true? Are there cosmetics?
If you heard about this can you do a review of these items too?
Yes! It’s true! There is a blush and a few glosses plus a concealer that I’ve already reviewed from Bihada Ichizoku. Today I’ll introduce you to the Bihada Ichizoku Cheek Blush and next week I’ll tell you about the gloss.
It’s actually great you asked as I can warn you not to bother with the blush in Beige. There is one other shade, a pink as well but I only happen to have the beige in my personal collection.
The blush comes housed in a crystal clear flip top compact much like Shu Uemura blushes are, identical really. The blush itself is very nice formula wise. Not as chalky as many Asian blushes are but nice and silky smooth plus plenty of pigment. Mostly I hate the shade. Beige is a very boring shade of muddy brown orange that’s deeply unflattering on my cheeks. I purchased online and going by photos online it looked like a great dupe for NARS Orgasm, peachy pink and pretty, however that’s simply not the case. I haven’t personally seen the pink but hopefully it’s better than the beige.
The actually product, formula, and packaging is wonderful however the color leaves alot to be desire. Overall, it’s a cute little blush if you can find it priced at $10 or under however I wouldn’t indulge in it at a higher mark up, just not that big a deal unless you’re really having a hardcore craving for cute Japanese cosmetics.
Nice but nothing to get too worked up over.
Most of the Bihada Ichizoku Collection can be found on Amazon for purchase.
I hope this answers your question Kelly and I’ll be sure to have a review of the lipgloss soon.
