Two brands. Two fancy packagings. Two unusual color combinations.
Double happiness? Not quite, sadly.
First up, we have the Laneige Fresh Modernist Blusher in 01. In the pan is a combination of 3 colors -- purple, peach and beige. Peculiar color combo indeed. There's a little brush in there, which I don't use.
I love the psychedelic holographic design on the casing. Though, it's kinda bulky for a blush. My thoughts on the color below.
As always, you can count on Anna Sui to come up with beautiful packaging. The white design on the blush is an overspray so it came right off with the first swipe.
03 is a dirty peachy pink paired with an orangey yellow. In theory, it would've produced a warm peachy blush but it in reality, not so much. Thoughts on the color below.
On the left is the Laneige Fresh Modernist Blush. The color's pretty pleasant but nothing special to the point that they needed to have three separate colors to produce just one. The blush is very very sheer so using them alone doesn't produce much color at all. I'd still use it since the color's alright but I'm just not very excited over it.
On the right is the Anna Sui Double Cheek Color in 03. The color turned out to be an unflattering orange. And trust me, I've worn orange blushes before. This one just looked muddy and I can't think of what kind of skin tone that would be able to pull it off. I tried using more of the pink but it was nothing special at all.
Both blushes don't come cheap either. Laneige is RM115 and Anna Sui's RM91. I'm sorry. I wish I could be more enthusiastic but I'm not. Thank goodness for Benefit's Bella Bamba. Did I tell you that I'm in love with it? I really need to review it!
