MY TAKE

Luminoso is what I've been wearing lately, it's like a peachy with golden tones to it. Definitely will give you a glow if you are like me who likes glow on your cheeks. The shimmers are not really visible.

Berry Amore is medium mauve with  gold shimmers in it. I like wearing this with my mauve lip gloss and its perfect. This might be too deep with light skin as for me not that too dark. 

 

It comes with a mirror when you flip the bottom part of the compact with a small brush which I don't wanna recommend using it, better use your own brush, well as for me I don't like most of the brush that comes with the product, not as good as the real ones.

The Packaging

I don't really care about the packaging, it has a golden rim which I don't mind. With a drug store product that beats all the blushes in the store and the quality is compared to department store brands is enough for me for an affordable price. You are actually paying less for the quality alone, if it would be a high end one, the better packaging it would be.

Pigmentation is awesome, it can be use dry or wet, wet for more pigmentation and deeper color. It last for my 8 hour shift at work of course with a primer and foundation on.

Swatches above is taken in a natural light, this is how it looks like on my skin tone NC 37 to 40 for reference.....it can be bold if you want more pigmentation

I would definitely buy some more of the remaining shades available, good addition to your stash, worth it.

I am keeping an eye on Corallina and Tera Sole for my bronzer this summer. I have lots of blushes that I can't use  for a life time. It sucks to live nearby so many stores,  plus ULTA and MARSHALLS are just like 20 minutes drive where I live now, actually newly open stores here in my place,  shoootttt the only way I don't spend on my day off is when I sleep all day.....how about you? what you do to not make your self spend for unnecessary things like these? tell me fellaaaasss... ^__^ thanks for taking time to read.....
