One of my favorite colors is peach (I think my blog's name makes it very obvious. Haha!). That's why I was so happy when I saw that one of the loots I got when I attended an Ellana event a couple of months ago was a product that is pure peachy goodness!
Ellana Mineral Cosmetics Illusion Lip and Cheek Cream Color
This is priced Php 250.00.
Info from the website:
WHAT IT IS
Mini-pots of a sheer wash of long-lasting luminous color, creamy & easily blendable. To use as blush, dot on the apples of your cheeks and blend. To use as lip color, dot on the middle of the lips and blend towards the edges. Highly pigmented, a little goes a long way.
HOW TO USE
Apply with a brush, sponge or fingertips. Use sparingly.
Euphorbia Cerifera Wax
Cera Alba Wax
May contain: D&C 27, D&C 7, Iron Oxides
So the shade Illusion is actually Deep Peach. To be honest, I don't prefer cream blushes because I have oily skin. They tend to not last long on me. But I can't resist such a beautiful shade! Just check out the closeup photo of the product:
Pretty, isn't it?
It looks super feminine, sweet, and warm. I've always loved that about the color peach. I always associate it with a princess for some reason ever since I was a kid.

On my lips
I'm definitely loving the matte finish of this product. It's very wearable and it will surely brighten your face. Don't believe me? Then check out my FOTD photos below:
It looks good on my lips and it also acts as a subtle peach blush on my cheeks. It's always great to own a product that does more than one function. It saves money and it's great for travel!
I usually put this on top of my foundation because I usually apply foundies with lots of coverage. What I like about this is that it doesn't wipe the foundation off nor does it mix with it. It sits nicely on the cheeks provided that you apply it gently with light fingers/sponge/brush.
Staying power is just so-so for being a lip product and a cheek product but for everything else (pigmentation, packaging, price, and texture), it's awesome!
And that is all I have to say about this very pretty product from Ellana Mineral Cosmetics. For more info about this and other products from Ellana, check out their:
