Nichido True Colors Powder Blush in Sunkissed Review
This was my favorite college blush! I used this for about 4 years alternating with the other shades and some ELF blushes. I guess this is a college favorite at my school. A lot of my classmates use Nichido too! If you haven’t checked this out you might want to read along. :)
I used this in college when I was not yet into makeup. I just wanted blushing cheeks for a more lively look. Nichido is one of the brands with the cheapest makeup locally available so mostly my makeup came from this brand. I think the other blush from this collection I had is Blushing Pink which is also a nice true pink shade.
The packaging of this product is up-front and simple. The clear lid gives you an idea what the color is. Unfortunately, this doesn’t have any mirror or come with a brush. So, I have to bring a separate brush for it. I remember I used Ellana’s Baby Buki back in the days. The pan is housed in a black plastic jar with a screw-on lid. It is a little flimsy though; well I wasn’t really expecting something heavy.
From the pan it looks like a peachy pink without shimmers, swatched on the skin the pink tones are very subtle. I think this color would suit light to medium skin tones. I especially like using this blush during the months of March till May when it is hot. The peachy color complements the summer vibe. I love that this is also a matte blush. Matte blushes look more natural though sometimes they might look chalky if there’s no base underneath. I really like the effect of powder products once my skin oils up since it looks more natural.
Like a lot of drugstore brands, this powder blush is sheer but still buildable. I like that I could wear this sheer for school back in college and a little bold when going out at night. This too could be streaky if you use a hard brush; luckily my brush is really soft.
Texture is smooth and soft but yeah could be chalky if not blended well. This is not really a compact makeup since it crumbles easily if I accidentally drop it.
This didn’t cause any breakouts on my cheeks. :) No irritation or redness experienced with this one though generally I rarely get irritated with powder products.
If there’s one thing I don’t like about this product is its staying power. It would stay for about two hours on my skin. Too bad for that, nevertheless it fades completely and doesn’t leave ugly feathering.
This has Talc though, one common allergen to some people. Luckily I’m not allergic to that ingredient. This has a 4g enough for me for about 6 months.

What I Like About It
- Color suits my skin tone
- Matte finish
- Looks natural
- Good color payoff
- Buildable – could be applied sheer or built to the desired intensity
- Not streaky
- Didn’t break me out or cause any irritation
What I Don’t Like About It
- Staying power is poor
- Quite powdery
- Flimsy packaging
This P88 blush performs well for a drugstore brand. This fits my college budget as well during my time. With this blush I learn how to apply properly and use my resources. I really didn’t need to spend my “baon” on high end products then since basically what I needed to do is study. Right now since I already have the money to buy products with higher quality I prefer them at the present since basically they look more natural and stay longer. For me still this product could still be a nice buy if you are on a budget since matte blushes are quite rare in local drugstore brands.
