The Cezanne Natural Cheek N. Tiny but so functional. I think it’s really one of those things that everyone should have in their makeup bag. It takes up hardly any room, it costs next to nothing yet a quick little swipe of this blush can perk up face in a matter of seconds.
This Japanese powder blush blends out seamlessly and it has the perfect amount of pigments that one little application just gives the prettiest wash of colour. It’s absolutely foolproof — in fact, I can even apply it without a mirror! It’s not so pigmented that you can end up looking like a clown without practice or special techniques. Build it up and you can create a more intense look, but I think that it’s best as a natural flush to the skin.
I can’t get enough of shade 01, Peach Pink. I hit pan after using it to finish off almost every makeup look this past summer! The included brush is next to useless so I highly suggest using your own. There’re currently 15 shades — some with micro shimmers, others are completely matte — so plenty to choose from.
The Cezanne Natural Cheek N is portable, super easy to apply, and with a smooth finish that looks ultra-natural and low-key. It’s a really affordable way of updating your makeup look for autumn. At just ¥396 (approx. US$3.50) for a 4g pan at Amazon Japan, it’s a no-brainer! Alternatively, you can find it online at YesStyle but with a hefty markup.
