Addiction by Ayako Cheek Stick – African Sunset

Thanks to my makeup buddies, I have managed to get a piece of the highly raved Addiction by Ayako makeup range. Addiction by Ayako is created by make up artist Ayako (obviously :p) who used to work in NARS. Hence, the packaging of the Addiction by Ayako makeup range has an uncanny resemblance to NARS’s (minus the yucky rubbery exterior).

I had wanted to try their eyeshadow singles but as they have too many shades (54 shades!), I cannot decide on the ones I want. So I zoomed in to my next love – the blushers! I have decided on the Cheek Stick as it can be used on the face and lips. There are 9 shades (1 new yummy shade after I have made my purchase! Arggh *sadface*) and I settled on African Sunset.

When I first received the Cheek Stick, I was flabbergasted at how tiny it is! It is the same size of a lipstick! African Sunset is a beige-peach with a pearly sheen to it (swatches can be found here and here). However, I find it a tad dry when using it on the cheeks and lips. I wonder if I’m the only person who thinks it is dry as everyone else is raving at how creamy it is -_- Did I get a bad product? Guess I gotta give it another go or heat it up a little? o.O

Below is a LOTD I have done using Kate’s Eye Shadow DB (Dual-Blend) (a gift from Elaine <3) with African Sunset.

    I think Sunset is abit drier than the Espriques Cheek sticks or the Canmake cream blushers but still quite easy to blend. I like it as it perks up my face and it’s a very natural color! :D

      yes! its drier than Esprique and Canmake’s but blending is still ok. Though I feel that I have to layer it on quite a bit for the color to show….

        Yupz! The color is just nice for us who likes subtle cheek colors these days! Have it light and build up color slowly is better than a heavy patch and ending up trying hard to blend it out! :P
