Design
 Here's how my items arrived! Complete with a mini product book, which features all their available products.
 Super cute lip essence cream! I love the design of the bear.
Comes in a lipstick format, just twist and apply! I love such applications as it is the neatest and handiest for me.
Check out their super cute blush! * CUTE FLUFF ALERT*

It is quite small and I can bring it just about anywhere. Portable sized, as you can see, up against my hand.
When you open it up, there's a lovely, fluffy puff for you to puff on the blush. But honestly, I didn't really think it was useful (the puff) for me as it doesn't really dab on much blush on my face. After a few tries, I gave up and used my brush instead.

Product
 The lip essence cream is a nude shade, and you can't really see it after it fully absorbs. But it is quite a rich cream, and here's a photo of me with the lip essence cream on my lips, just after application.
Just a slight sheen. But it is really feels quite thick and nourishing. While the website says that you can use it as a lipstick base, I would rather use it every night as an overnight lip mask, because it's really just too nourishing for me. I do love how I wake up in the morning with softer lips! (No crack, YAY!)

As for the blush, here's the colour for Hinate Sunkissed. As you can see, it is more coral, and I use it when I want to look a little... sunkissed. HAHA.

On a more serious note, I do like how it looks on my cheeks.

Verdict
I think I will not go to a winter country without the lip essence cream, as I did feel that it was really moisturising for my lips, but probably a tad too thick for Singapore's weather. This should really be good for those who are prone to chapped lips, but as for me, I really liked using it as an overnight 'lips mask'.

As for the blush, I loved the natural colour on my cheeks. Here's a picture of me after I've applied it. Hope you can see it here, because it was a little bright, so imagine this is the effect of being in a brightly lit area. I can still see the shade, without it being too in-your-face, and that, to me, is what a good blush should do.
I did love the scents from both products, it was super honey-licious! To summarise, I think I would probably repurchase both products again after reuse. :)
