I am feeling super lazy today from the morning. I was just swatching some blushes and lip glosses, walking around the house to click pictures in different light settings :P without doing any other work. (Signs of a beauty blogger huh) Finally, after the swatch works got over, I washed my face to clear my skin. So after that when I opened my beauty case to find a moisturizer, this cutie caught my eyes. Yes! It was sleeping there since I got this in my hand. No, I don't mean that it is a not-so-good product but I didn't use it much from when I got this from Cosmetic Love (A Korean online shopping site for beauty and makeup products) This lovely cookie blusher in Grapefruit Jelly shade from Etude House owns a cute name, packaging and shade. Go read my detailed review to know more on this product.

My Experience with Etude House Lovely Cookie Blusher in Grapefruit Jelly:
Packaging: This is one of the most cutest blushes I own! It comes in a round, soft pink plastic blush pan with a frosted semi transparent lid that shuts tightly. They have provided a cute white puff applicator with this blush and I love it the most. The puff is so soft and has a tiny pink bow on the top of it. Though it looks cute, it is not that useful when it comes to application of the blush. I would suggest a good quality blush brush anytime.
Colour, Texture & Pigmentation: I have no clue why they have named this shade as Grapefruit Jelly but from my view, it looks as a nice matte pink shade which has a slight hint of coral (more on the paler side) with no glitters or shimmers. It is not that chalky but settles matte. This shade looks super natural and is averagely pigmented. And I forget to mention one thing; this blush is fragrance free!
How it works: Though I loved this blush's packaging, shade and etc, this is not MY shade. I have a dusky-dark skin and it washes me out :( Unlucky me. This shade grapefruit jelly, though looks natural is more on the paler side thus making it not so suitable for darker skin tones. The shade on the swatch is just untrue to how it looks on the pan. This blush gives a natural pink shade to fairer cheeks.(Just pink and nothing else) It doesn't even show up on me and if I try to over build, it washes me out! Even though it doesn't suit me, I wore it a whole day to test the staying power etc. This blush stays good for 5-6 hours (It doesn't show up on me much so I am not sure about this part) and then fades away evenly. If you're fair skinned, you can go for this blush. Those who own a pale white skin can use this blush to give a beautiful natural pink flush to their cheeks! Overall, I would say this is a good natural pink blush for the price. They provide a huge quantity too.
