Review and Swatches: Aido Blusher in #2

Hello guys! I am sorry for my week of absence. I started work last, last week and I am really enjoying it but usually the start of the week is the craziest. I was able to adjust to my schedule now so I am back into posting regularly and today, I am going to share with you my thoughts on this Aido Blusher that I picked up last month.

Product Info and Ingredients:
I was browsing through the makeup section in Ever Commonwealth when I saw this. The packaging intrigued me so I picked it up and I was surprised that it is a loose powder blush from Aido and that it's only ₱75.00. Curiosity got the best of me and decided to pick up this product. There is only one shade available when I purchased this, and I am not sure if there are other shades available since I haven't visited the mall in ages!

Packaging wise, I think it is decent for a  ₱75 blush. It comes in a plastic container with a screw top, it also has a sifter for the powder blush and comes with a small puff. Personally, I wouldn't be using the puff since I wouldn't be able to really blend the product.
The shade that I got is #2, a pink, plummy shade bordering to purple. It looks intimidating but it actually looks quite nice when blended out on the cheeks. It has tiny tiny gold shimmers in it, which I was able to capture in the photo below:
Here is a swatch on the back of my hand:
And here's what it looks like on the face:
It adds a nice flush and glow to the cheeks. I actually enjoy this blush and I have been using it ever since. A little goes a long way so I am not sure when I will be able to finish it.

What I like about this product:
- Cheap for only ₱75.00.
- Locally available.
- A little goes a long way.
- Looks very natural even with shimmers.
- Packaging is okay, sifter contains the product so it is not messy.
- Size is good for travelling.

What I didn't like about this product:
- Puff included, will not be able to blend out the product really well.
- Not sure if there are other shades.

For a cheap blush, this product really works and I love it. I wasn't intimated by the color and I love how natural it looks. If you are looking for an affordable blush, you may want to try this out. You can even share this with a friend or a family member!

Hope you like this review. Let me know your thoughts about it, or if you have other blushes that you can recommend. Looking at my collection, I have lots of eyeshadows, lipsticks (of course) and mascaras but I have a few blush and contour powders. Do you guys have recommendations? Please leave it in the comments below.

Thank you so much for reading! February is almost over so expect my February favorites posts plus an unboxing post so please stay tuned. Stay happy, goodluck!

    at least the powder puff acts as a stopper to prevent spillage... haha... :D the shade looks natural on you... i think all of us shouldn't be intimidated by too bright blushes out of the pan/tub... they really appear different when we apply them on...

    Hi Maica!

    I saw you had some products from Daiso so I was thinking you might be interested in Choicerish's video of her haul from there:

    She featured a blush that might be found at Daiso in the Philippines. It's a 2 part video and she has a tutorial vid with the products she got as well. I got the mascara primer and it works wonders. I think you should try it!

    The side of your head is shaved? Looks cool :)

    I swatched a few of those and I immediately put it down, but it actually looks quite nice when worn :)

    Thanks dear! I think they have other shades, I need to go to the mall ASAP! :D

    I was surprised too that it looks nice once applied. It looks scary on the packaging and when swatched heavily.

    Hello Michelle, thank you for the link! We only get Daiso products here at Saizen, and I've never been to one in ages. Will definitely check out the video, thank you!
