TonyMoly Cristal Blusher #4 Milky Violet Review

I came across this blush yonks ago when Teddybearkitties talked about how much she liked the colour #3 Pleasure Peach. Initially I wanted to try Etude House's Cookie Blusher in Blueberry Pie in 2013 but I decided to wait for a sale that never happened and it became discontinued and never sold again for $6 online. Etude House has other items with lavender blush colours such as the Sweet Recipe All Over Cupcake in PK001 Blueberry Cheesecake and the Dreaming Swan Eye and Cheek in #4 Releve Purple.

Many road shop brands also have lavender blushes (e.g., The Saem, It's Skin, Missha, Skinfood, The Face Shop) but I decided to go with Tony Moly as this blush was featured on this episode of Get It Beauty. This lavender colour is not something I've commonly come across in brands available at Priceline. There's just something romantic and youthful about lavender cheeks. It is also the perfect colour for Spring/Summer.

This blusher comes in 16 shades including highlight and shading/contour colours! Unfortunately, some of these shades have been discontinued and are becoming increasingly more difficult to find online. 

Milky Violet has a lot of white base in it and can look chalky. Remember not to overdo it on your cheeks! On the face, it does not look as lavender as it does in swatches, but rather, more like a pale pink with a lavender tinge to it. Otherwise, this blush looks good on its own or as a base to tone out yellow skin before topping it off with another coloured blush. I've noticed that there are very tiny and subtle iridescent sparkly bits that is just noticeable in swatches, but not when applied. I really like this blush, but the plastic casing is not very good. After having it for a year, the casing has snapped off >_< 

This blush is excellent value for money and I would repurchase it again in this colour. Not particularly relevant, but I like the diamond ridges on the powder. It's a good starter lavender blush to test whether or not you like wearing this type of shade:D
