So anyhoot. The SA was kind enough to answer all my inquiries about the brand, and I'm guessing she gets that a lot since she sounded like she knew what she was talking about. Turns out, Rucy's Vanity is a Korean brand that is just starting to make a name here in the country so they're sort of new in the korean make-up scene. Admittedly, I was sort of doubtful at first because of its price - they're all so cheap eh! I haven't seen a korean BB cream being sold for under 200php (or less than 5 USD), I mean, have you? But that was all cleared out when the sales lady assured me that all products are FDA approved. So the first thing that I got was this tint, the reason I was in that mall in the first place! I guess the Magic Pink Cream's gotta wait. :D
Probably the first thing that got me here was the packaging. Its small at 8ml but you only need a small amount anyway so this right here will last you a long time. And besides, if you run out you can always get yourself one because its uber affordable. If you're wondering how much I got this for, and I know that you are, I got this for only 70php ($1.70).
I have read a number of reviews on different Lip and Cheek tints from different brands and they all have one thing to say, they're drying. So far I have only tried the tints from Ever Bilena, Nichido and Tony Moly, and yes, I do love the color pay off BUT I wouldn't buy them again as they dry out my lips especially on a humid day. And a humid day means EVERYDAY in Manila. LOL
So when I saw that this is a moisturizing Lip & Cheek tint, I was all keyed up! The first thing that I did when I got home was to try this on my cheeks!
As much as I want to show you a picture of me wearing this tint on my cheeks, I can't. I'm currently breaking out due to PMS but I promise to post one when it clears up.
You only need a small amount of this product if you want to apply this on your cheeks. You certainly don't want to look like a clown, now, don't you? This size right here should be enough to cover both the apples of your cheeks. Take note that blending is key to achieve that natural flush.
See how pigmented it is? That's why blending is so important!
So now I'm going to show you how it looks like on my lips :)
Here are my BARE LIPS for reference
