DIamond Blush 04 [ゴールドジュエリー] [[REVIEW]]

Posted in Diamond Blush, Diamond Lash by Jae on March 14, 2011

 

So we’ve heard a lot about Diamond Lash and how their lashes are often really unique and comfortable, but did you know that the company also does other cosmetics as well? 😀

That’s right, I’m back today with a review on one of their other lines, from the Diamond Blush range comes DIamond Blush 04 [ゴールドジュエリー] !

You may be wondering why I chose this particular blush, well Mizukitty actually recommended it in one of her tutorials for the active GAL look so I just had to have one as well.

I really like that the packaging for this is extremely simple.

This blush costs 1050 Yen for 6g which roughly works out to be about 17.00SGD per piece. This makes it one of the most economical blushes out there, in fact, it’s a lot cheaper than even Melliesh.

No applicator here but I’m not complaining seeing that it’s got plenty of product for the price.

The blush pan is encased in clear plastic all round and has a good amount of weight.

Notice the little jewel stuck on the dot of the ‘i’? I found it an interesting touch to the packaging.

It’s simple, flat, would be easy to tote around and to stack and store as well.

It’s the typical snap close style packaging but the closure catch is a little shallow, so we might have to be careful about it accidently snapping open during transit.

Now, this blush is meant to be a highlighter so I figured that I’d do a bit of a comparison with one of my other favourite blushes that I thought would run rather close to the shade, here’s Canmake’s Highlighter in Baby Peach.

But well, Diamond Blush is a lot golder as compared to Canmake. This is probably the most colour accurate image I’ve got of Diamond Blush ゴールドジュエリー actually!

Notice here that the sheen on Diamond Blush is comparable to Canmake 05.

The difference is that Diamond Blush, instead of uniformly sized shimmer particles like Canmake, has got a mixture of large and small bits, allowing light to bounce off in a more natural fashion. This also means that if you don’t like shimmer in your blushes, steer clear.

I personally feel that Diamond Blush would work great on slightly darker skin while Canmake 05 would work best on fairer skin.

See how Diamond Blush 04 blends right into my skin tone while Canmake 05 stands out? 😀 Yup!

Diamond Blush worked great on me when I use RMK 103 plus my Angelcolor Loose Powder, so it’s definitely suitable for you if you’d like a super natural highlighter.

Wear time was so-so for this one, I also found from my swatches that it’s easy to wipe off Diamond Blush 04, so it might be a good idea to bring it around with you with your canmake applicators -winks-

Hope this helps, love!

    The jewel on the ‘i” is really cute! I guess this is less pinkish-tone compared to the canmake one, right?

      Haha, yes it is, isn’t it?!
      And yup! Most definitely, it actually leans more to the gold side :3

    Thanks for the review,im very tempted by this.Its difficult finding a nice highlighter here in the uk,everythings super shimmery.This looks wearable:)
    How does it compare to your other highlighters like candydoll and mellish?:)

    • Jae said, on March 16, 2011 at 2:18 pm

      Hey Alanna!
      😀 Welcome to my blog and ahhh!!! I saw my blog on your blog roll dearie! Thank you! ❤

      Hmm… In terms of how glittery it is, I do think it's comparable to Candydoll but the highlighter from Melliesh has the least noticeable glitter particles… If you're looking for something that's close to matt then I would definitely suggest Melliesh dearie! 😀 Hope this helps!
