Ever Bilena Cheek Blush in Earth Review
Some local brands like Ever Bilena offer a variety of cost effective cosmetic products with high quality to boot. I love their matte lipsticks; I own all the shades I think. I decide to try their blushes on a random visit to the department store’s beauty section. I loved how pigmented it is when I swatched it, so I bought it along with many other stuff that I felt I needed at the time. [Women!] Ida already shared with you guys the Cheek shade so I will review the Ever Bilena Cheek Blush in Earth instead.
I choose the Earth shade for that sun-kissed glow that is ideal for summer. On this part of the hemisphere, it’s almost always summer so I get to use it most of the time. I’m planning on getting my dirty hands on all the shades anyway so this is just the beginning. JK. I’ve been using this blush for almost a month now. I use it when I know I’ll be out under the sun doing whatever and getting skin cancer because it makes me look a lot more gorgeous. For real though, the shade is pretty and it gives you that healthy glow.
It looks like a washed-out shade of brown on the pan, but actually applies bronzy orange. Not too orange, just the right tan finish for medium skin tones. Those with fair complexion might find this too orange on them. Morenas will love this shade.
The compact looks sturdy and very lightweight. It closes and opens conveniently for hurried touch ups in the car or in the powder room. It also has a separate compartment underneath when you flip it up, which contains the mirror and cheek brush. Ida was right, the brush smells funky! I use another cheap find; a China-made kabuki brush that is so soft, I die! I got it for 30 bucks and that my friends will be another post.
Can you say pigmented? That’s only one swipe with my index finger. I love this blush. I will try all their shades, for Php150 it’s already a bargain! You have to use it sparingly though. Here’s a closer look on the swatch:
The product is not chalky with very minimal fall out. It is also unscented which is another big plus for a cheap product.

What I do NOT like about the Ever Bilena Cheek Blush in Earth: PROS
1. The brush included has a funky chemical smell to it.
2. The mirror is inconveniently placed.
This product is a lot cheaper than most mid-range drugstore cosmetics. It delivers the same result too. Buying makeup should never be about the price. I would definitely buy this product once I run out. For all the makeup lovers on a budget, this is for us!
