Tony Moly Cheektone Single Blusher
Today I'm going to be talking about the Tony Moly Cheektone Single Blushers! I picked these up for my full face of Tony Moly because the colour range looked really cute! I am missing a couple of colours, I don't have #4 which is called Marmalade, I bought that shade from 5 different retailers but was refunded for all of them because they couldn't source the shade. While searching for #4 I also discovered that there were two other shades, #9 and #10 that are "new" shades but sadly those couldn't get here in time before I published this review.
It is a professional blusher for pure and intense color without darkening your skin.
These blushes have very simple, minimal packaging. I like that the lid is clear so it's easy to grab the correct shade without having to guess which one is which. The packaging is flat so stores and stacks well and they don't come with brushes which I personally prefer.
I have seven shades from the collection and I am missing three. The colour range is quite pretty and the shades are quite varied, though I find that the pinks are very cool toned which is unusual. I do like that they included a purple as well as a deeper pinky or red shade too.
In general these blushes are fairly easy to apply, though they do need to be built up with a couple of layers to get the colour to show up well. They can be quite powdery too, some of the shades are sheerer than others and these can end up with a powdery finish which isn't awful for me, but since my skin is fairer it is likely that darker skintones will need more layers than I do, and will end up with more of a powdery finish.
Milky Violet is a cool toned lavender shade.
This is a very pretty colour, but not one that looks good on my skin. Purple shades counteract yellow shades, and since my skin is very warm toned or yellow this shade looks a little strange. I enjoy wearing warm toned lavender shades, but this one doesn't look amazing on my skin tone. This shade is quite sheer and requires at least two to three heavy layers to show up on my cheeks.
Floria Pink is a bright strawberry pink shade.
This is another beautiful shade that I don't think looks amazing on my skin tone. It is such a vibrant shade that I can get away with one layer of blush which looks a little more natural on me, but since it is more of a mid toned pink it can look quite overwhelming on lighter skin tones like mine. This is definitely a shade I would recommend for Princesses with mid toned skin.
Wink Coral is a pretty peach shade.
This is one of my favourite shades and one that I get a lot of wear out of. It looks quite natural on my skin tone and doesn't lean too far into the orange shades or too far into the pink. It's in the middle in terms of pigmentation, I usually need to use two layers of this blush to get this colour, but I don't end up with a powdery finish so that is fine for me.
Deep Kiss Lover
Deep Kiss Lover is a darker peachy pink. I don't know how they came up with that name though.
This is a shade that I was initially very cautious of, but in reality it looks quite on me! It is a very similar colour to the Nars blush in Orgasm, but without the shimmer. It makes my skin look very naturally flushed which is quite flattering and would be quite a nice shade on darker skin tones too.
Salmon Nude is a pastel apricot shade.
I'm not a fan of oranges on my skin, but this shade doesn't look awful. I definitely don't reach for it, especially since the other shades in the collection work better for me, but it's not bad. I think this shade would look great on very fair, cool toned skin.
Orange Shower is a bright carrot orange shade.
Orange Shower is hands down my least favourite shade in the range (surprise surprise). I personally think that this type of orange just looks so unnatural and odd on my skin tone, I am just so not a fan of this colour. This is one of the darker shades, and would be suitable for darker skin tones too which is great.
Rose Coat is a pastel milky pink shade.
This is one of my favourite shades along with Wink Coral! I think it looks very natural and pretty on my skin, it's a very Becca colour! It is surprisingly darker on the cheeks than it is in the pan which I personally prefer. This shade probably wouldn't show up well on darker skin tones, but it is a really beautiful shade for the fairer skin tones.
I am quite surprised at how much I like some of the shades, and how much I don't like some of the shades. I thought that the lavender and strawberry pink shades would have looked really good on me, but they actually don't, and I didn't think that the coral or super pale pink would be my favourites but they are! I'm not a massive fan of the oranges, but I don't think anybody is surprised by that really. In general, the blushes are easy to use and come in a nice colour range, they're also pretty inexpensive at $5USD each from most retailers.
