Ever Bilena Cheek Blush in Raisin - Review, Photos, Swatches

Beauty doesn't always come with a ridiculously high price tag. Sometimes, all you have to do is dig a little deeper, look a little closer, and try new stuff.

I just realized that all my blushes are frosted (shimmery and/or baked). Yes, they are gorgeous, but I sure could use some matte ones. I am in my mid 20s and have oily skin, so all that shimmer isn't helping.

This may come as a surprise for some people, but I also shop at drugstores for makeup. I am not rich, and I think we all need to be practical especially these days when money is hard to come by. I also want to dedicate this to my younger readers who can't spend their entire allowance on makeup, but still wants to get quality beauty products.

I believe we should make an effort in supporting local brands, especially when they're at par with more expensive foreign brands.

I now give you:

Ever Bilena Cheek Blush in Raisin

This is a matte blush (but under bright light there's a little bit of shimmer) in a peachy coral with a touch of pink. I think this will suit most skin tones. It's not chalky at all. It's buildable so you can wear it as sheer or as opaque as you want it to be. It has a slight distinct smell but its not that strong so I don't think its bothersome. I also love that it comes with a compact mirror and a brush. This is my second purchase of this product. I got my first compact a few years back when I was just starting to experiment with makeup.

PROS: Nice color, good formula, buildable, super affordable and readily available locally
CONS: The packaging is not that sturdy so please be careful, has a slight smell but I'm sure you can overlook that


 I will definitely repurchase!
