AMW Reviews: Ansley New York 3D Shimmer Powder and Blusher

You have probably heard about Glow and Glamour Store from THIS Contest which was sponsored by them.  Oh, the contest isn't over yet, feel free to join and win yourself a Love Package! :)

Okay, back to Glow and Glamour Store, the online store also sells various contact lenses and of course, cosmetics!  One of the brand you can find in store is the Ansley New York Cosmetics.  I originally thought this was a US brand but guess what?  It's Made in Korea! :)

 

I got 2 shades---
01 Rose Blossom

02 Fairy Pink

Ansley New York 3D Shimmer Powder and Blusher says ---
  • 2 in 1 The powder as soft as a velvet and pressed dots blusher are in a box.
  • The master of 3D make up The micro pearlcontained powder will structure 3D face line.
  • Unchangeable skin surface It will keep the moist and shiny skin all day long.
Weight: 120grams

AMW says ---
Pros
  • Packaging is really nice!  Comes with loose powder and blusher!
  • The loose powder portion is sealed pretty well upon purchase.
  • Has an extra blush brush.
 
  • The loose powder puff feels very smooth on skin and is made of good quality.
  • The 3D Shimmer Powder gives healthy glow with a nice oil control.
  • The blusher looks very natural.  01 Rose Blossom shows really well on most skin color.  
  • The 3d shimmer powder is finely milled and soft to feel and does not create white cast.
  • 3d shimmer powder can also be used on neck, arms and the rest of the body as it gives a nice healthy shimmer.
  • The blush and powder stays for almost 4-5 hours for normal or dry skin, approximately 3 hours for oily skin.
  • The company that sells this packs the product really well and I got them safe and sound.
Cons
  • The extra blush brush is nice but it has to be kept separately in a pouch or makeup bag to prevent the brush from getting dirty.
  • As a retouch powder, pressed powder is always better to prevent "mess".
  • Not locally available, have to pay extra for shipping plus wait for them to arrive.  
  • 02 Fairy Pink will not show well on darker skin tone.
  • As for the loose powder, it has obvious glitters which may not be advisable for people who prefer matte-looking skin!
Overall
The Ansley New York 3D Shimmer Powder works just like that of a Laura Mercier or Shu Uemura Loose powder, definitely highly recommended.  For the Ansley New York Blusher which is also part of the package, this gives a nice "super natural" flush no matter how much you apply.
Tips
  • If you have oily skin, blot excess oil with an oil blotter first prior to retouch to prevent powder build up or patches.
  • If you like retouching with a k-brush, leave the blush brush that comes with the product and use ONE brush to retouch both blush and powder!  
  • If you like using the "powder puff" that comes with the product, do not forget to wash it regularly to prevent bacteria build up.
  • If you like the "obvious" blush, apply your favorite blush shade of choice then top with Ansley Blusher as they give a nice, healthy, unexplainable glow.
  • For the blusher: Since both 01 and 02 shades will always appear natural, this is the perfect blusher/ setting powder on top of a cream blush or cheek tint!
  • Once allergic reactions occur, STOP usage immediately.
Will I repurchase?
Yes!  I may not finish up the Blusher quickly but I like using the 3D Shimmer Powder on clients.

To whom do I recommend this to?
Ladies on the go who are happy with powder and blush then zoom!

I picked the shade 01 Rose Blossom
