Ettusais Blush Review

My obsession with Ettusais continues with a review of these interesting little mousse blushes that I picked up!

I don't like these but I won't give them a bad review because they are actually great yet a bit too natural for me.

First of all the packaging is ultra cute and I believe that's what sold me on these. They come in a tiny glass jar with a cute screw top! Awww! Packaging really sells me on a product and in this case I had to have these as they were so yummie looking!

A few US companies do a similar style blush such as Clinique's Touch Blush. These have the feel of a silky mousse. It's very light and airy! Application is a breeze as these blend on perfectly and sink into the skin practically on contact!

The color selections I got were a dark bronze peach, a cooler, lighter peach, and a natural pink. Here in lays part of my dislike of the blushes, they go on very sheer and give me a beautiful glow of color but it's a bit too natural for me. I like blush that's vibrant and these just give me more of a natural, I'm not wearing any blush flush.

All in all they are very cute and are interesting to use but I just can't love them! They are looking for a new home ;) If anyone is interested shoot me an e-mail!

hi Ann the Queen!


Is wearing creams a bit hard with mineral foundation? Was always curious. I thought maybe you could wear your stain or cream under the mineral foundation!

hi ' * : . b | u 3 . : * '!

You know how I love me some shimmer!

hi bliss!

It's very sheer and natural rather then popping!

It's actually even more lighter then the touch blush ;)

I don't like sheer either ;) You and I are in the same boat with that!

Hey Muse, I'm always a blush fan and on the look out for new blushes. They look gorgeous. How do you get your hands on these Asian cosmetic brands? I can't believe you tried these out without posting a FOTD

cute mousse blushes! i don't know how to email you, so i'm shooting you a comment instead. i'd like additional info on the blushes, if they're still available (i.e. price, etc). you can email me at

OH, question! i tried really hard to steer clear of MAC since the Fafi release because I didn't want to spend my money, but I happened to be passing by a MAC freestanding store with my friend, and i couldn't resist. I stopped myself from going Fafi-insane, though. I just picked up a beauty powder in verve-acious and a medium clear makeup bag. LOVING HOW ITS CLEAR! how do you use your beauty powders? do you use it for an all-over glow?
thanks so much, muse~

hi serenity!

Thanks! I have a bit of a wait list right now but will email you and add you on as I haven't heard back from everyone in regards to payment and such!

YAY FAFI LOVE!!!!!!! I normally use the powders as a highlighter on my cheek bones. I just smile bright and apply to my cheek bones. But you can use it anywhere really. As a base for your shadows, on your shoulders and cleavage, on your cheeks, as a highlighter etc...!

Hope this helps ;)

Thanks for the comment lovie!
