Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher Review

If I go full-on-makeup mode, then I must be going somewhere special. As much as I wanted to do the contouring and use my favorite falsies, I simply couldn’t – I am in school almost every day after all. After watching a couple of makeup tutorial video clips on Instagram and how good they contour their faces, I realized that maybe, with the right contouring product, I can sport it even on school days. That’s when I found Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher in Mud Brown.
Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher in Mud Brown is actually a blush product, but because of its darker shade, I thought that it can pass as a contour too. Mud Brown is the darkest shade among the 6 available colors. Pecan brown was my first choice, but I decided to go with Mud brown instead because it may work better for contouring. 
Mud Brown has a reddish undertone so you have to go easy while blending it down. It’s also not as pigmented as I thought it would be, but maybe because it is, after all, a blush on. So, I have to put on a couple of layers to build up the color and set it with a contour powder to make it last longer.
I am not quite fond of the smell of this blending stick blusher. It isn’t bad, but it doesn’t smell good either – it smells more like an old foundation.
Anyway, I like how buttery it is and does not have a shimmery finish.

Another good thing about Missha Soft Blending Stick Blusher is that it comes with a built-in brush. It kind of reminds me of a stippling brush, only smaller. The brush is soft and dense making it easier to use; it is also detachable so you can clean the brush after using it. Nevertheless, I don’t like using it to blend the contour stick as I prefer to use my fingers. Using my fingers allows me to control the blending and build up the color more. Also, it tends to transfer to the blending brush and that makes me use more of the cream stick than necessary. Perhaps I could use the brush for other purposes.

My round face now has edges LOL
For a girl like me who prefer a subtle makeup and wants to give her face a little bit of contour, then this is the one for you. And for 500 pesos, this one is already a good deal.

What do you think of contour sticks?
