    Kose Visée Lip and Cheek Cream



    I remember reading advices from makeup experts a long time ago saying cream blush lasts longer on the skin than powder blush does and thinking, "Yah, um, no, I don't think so." I was a sceptic with oily-combination-skin back then, who remained steadfastly loyal to mostly powder-based products with the exception of liquid foundations.

    Ever since I learned better (I did, thankfully), I occasionally even use lipsticks as blush, which surprisingly works wonderfully well, but a proper cream blush will always naturally deliver better results, like this pretty Visée lip and cheek cream which I L-O-V-E. Lately, I don't blog about every makeup product I buy so if you see me dedicating a post on one product, that thing's a pretty big deal in my life, FYI.



    The best I can describe Visée shade PK-4 is corally pink-red, a pretty universally flattering shade. I don't like sticking my finger into any makeup product in a pot so I would use a cotton bud to pick up the cream and dab little dots onto the higher parts of my cheekbones + a little on the apples of the cheeks, then smoothing them out using patting motion.

    This cream is very sheer so I don't find much point in using it on my lips but it's a real winner for the cheeks in my beauty book. It was a recommendation by Lisa Eldridge, who always knows what she's talking about; this cream has a beautiful natural look and lasts for a really long time. You can use a tiny portion for an au naturel look or layer the cream on to make it more intense.

    My only regret is obviously not buying more shades as it's not available in Malaysia. I see some being sold on Ebay but I'm not sure if I would ever buy a makeup product from Ebay to be honest. If you're going to Japan, don't forget to buy some and add more as a backup!
