ABAD Day 4: Hard Candy Living Doll baked blush//"每日一胭脂"系列 第四天: Hard Candy Living Doll 烘培胭脂

Today's ABAD post features the baked blush in Living Doll from Hard Candy. Normally I'm not a huge fan of baked products since I think the application is messy (powder flies everywhere since it's dome-shape). I'd like to thanks Justine for getting this for me as an extra in our CP swap *smooches*.

來到第4天, 今天介紹經過烘培的胭脂: Hard Candy 的 Living Doll. 本人對經過烘培的胭脂不大有興趣, 總是覺得掃起來很髒, 粉沫會到處飛 (因為是圓拱型). 很感激Justine寄了這個給我!

The compact is HUGE. I was expecting the size of a MAC blush but its larger than that. Contains 8g of product, very decent I must say!

盒子頗大的啦...以為是與MAC的胭脂大小一樣, 怎知這個更大, 有8克那麼多的product, 很不錯啊!

Dome-shaped blush infused with tiny veins in yellow color, but the yellow doesn't show/affect the blush itself.

圓拱型的烘培胭脂, 帶有小許黃色的'絲', 但黃色那部份是不影响整個胭脂的顏色的.

Now's the pretty part. See how gorgeous it swatches! GLOWY is the word that pops up in my mind immediately. I won't say the color of this blush is dark because it isn't, but it's definitely a glowy product which can be blush for some (like under NC30 I suppose) and a highlighter for darker skintones.

準備好了, 看手背上的試色居然那麼beautiful?! 很亮澤的效果啊. 色調方面我不會說這是深的顏色, 但很有光澤的效果, 淺色膚色的朋友可以用來做胭脂, 深膚色的朋友可用來作光影粉/highlight.

Since the finish is shimmery, you'll be able to see enhanced pores on my cheeks, LOL just saying. Isn't the pink glow beautiful?

淡淡的粉紅帶低調的閃, 漂亮嗎?
Intensity: Pigmentation is medium-high
Finish: Shimmery, can double as highlighter (use a light hand of course)
Value: $8 USD approx, cheap as it contains 8g of product.
Lasting power: Lasts around 4-5 hours?
Repurchase: Yes, I'd love to try the shade Honeymoon!
Overall thoughts: Absolutely adore this blush! I prefer matte blushes but this one had got me by surprise with its subtle glow added onto cheeks and the pale pink wash. I say GO FOR IT either as a blush or a highlighter!

上色度: 中至高
效果: 閃的, 但不是大大粒閃粉/金粉那種, 比較柔和
價錢: $8 USD左右, 便宜, 8克, 抵用 (只在美國/加拿大有售)
持久度: 約4-5小時吧?
回購: 會, 想試另一顏色: Honeymoon!
總評: 極喜愛Living Doll! 平日較喜歡啞光胭脂的我都不得不破例, 尤其是那柔和的閃亮效果, 加上閃粉不大粒, 不粗, 很柔滑, 非常理想. 絕對要試試啊!

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?

Project ABAD was started by Elaine, Jolyn and I. On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 3 x 30 = 90 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's and Jolyn's blogs for daily blush surprises!


我們三個(Elaine, Jolyn 和我)每天會介紹當日使用的胭脂, 3人 x 30 = 會介紹總共 90 個胭脂 (新與舊), 配以試色圖(於手上或面上), 再加短短的用評. 本人於未來30天會使用這些胭脂. 去Elaine, Jolyn的blogs看看她們在用那個胭脂吧!!
