The packaging is so cute! Even if I didn't know about Candy Doll, the box alone would've caught my eye.
Though small, the blush comes in a clear pan with a cute design on the front. :3
Really gorgeous bubble gum pink color. ♥
My blush came specially packaged with this nifty brush and case. I always use it when I put on Candy Doll. ^__^
Here are what my cheeks looked like before applying the blush.
And with the blush! This photo was taken with natural lighting. I think the color looks just as vibrant on my cheeks as it does in the pan.
I really caked the blush on my face, but my camera doesn't seem to pick it up very well. It looked much heavier in person!
With flash, you can definitely see the color a lot better. It's funny because when my little cousin saw me that day, he told me I looked like Pikachu! xD
Overall, I absolutely love this blush! It's the perfect shade of pink for me. ♥ Although heavily pigmented, it's not too heavy when applied lightly. The best part is that it shows up well in photos, especially with flash. ^__^ I'd say the only disadvantages are its small size and lack of availability in the U.S. It's a bit more expensive to buy it online, but quite easy to obtain. There's just that anticipation of getting it in the mail. xD
