Karadium ♥ Ribbon Marble Blusher #2 Pink Orange

Today I have a very pretty and girl blusher to show you, it is the Karadium Ribbon Marble Blusher. ♥ There are three shades available from this range, but I only have one to show and that is shade #2 Pink Orange.

I am a total newbie to Karadium Cosmetics, I don't know anything about the brand except that their products are made in Korea and their packaging is one of the prettiest I have seen! Obviously it can't be compare to well-known brands like Etude House and Tony Moly, but it's not too far off. 

Karadium first caught my eyes on BeautyNetKorea, I spot these pretty marble blushes while window shopping and my first thought was "omg look at the cat, she's winking at me" and then a voice inside came after "you don't need another blusher, especially from a brand you have never heard of". I end up with #2 Pink Orange, cause it's just soooo pretty and my makeup collection agreed they need another member in their blusher family.

Karadium Ribbon Marble Blusher is described as an oven-baked blush that will apply even and looks natural, it features minerals that hydrates and condition the skin, three different blusher shades that provides the perfect glow. Karadium claims these are long-lasting, they are suitable for all skin types and will look flattering on a variety of skin tones.

There are three shades available from the Ribbon Marble Blusher range: #1 Highlighter, #2 Pink Orange and #3 Gold Peach. It was a hard decision choosing the color and since I always pick my shades based on what looks the prettiest in the compact, I end up getting #2 Pink Orange. To be honest, I kind of regret my chosen color a little, =/ It looks absolutely beautiful in the compact, it has a combination of pink, orange and champagne; the marble design is also very pretty. The downside is the blush color barely shows up on my skin tone.

Karadium Ribbon Marble Blusher comes packaged in a silver mirror reflects cardboard box with a cute cat design and plenty stars, hearts and butterflies etc... The actual compact is made of hard plastic, it is sturdy and it holds the powder blush nicely without it coming loose. The compact itself also has the same design as the cardboard box except that it's printed in an ombre pink color and a white base around and on the bottom of the compact. Karadium's packaging isn't all flash and elegant, but it is good quality and their designs are really cute.

A mirror and a brush is included in the compact, the brush feels very and it has thick bristles. As you can see in the picture above and below, there is a clear plastic separator between the blusher and the brush, it is attached to the compact and I don't think it is removable unless you snap it into two.

The clear plastic separator is to protect your blush from getting dirty, also to protect your brush your scratching the product. I find it so inconvenience having to flick the separator every time I want to use the blush, I think it's good that Karadium has thought of all the hygiene facts whilst making the Ribbon Marble Blusher, but the separator is just so annoying! Who has all that free time to flick the separator?! Not me!

Karadium Ribbon Marble Blusher in shade #2 Pink Orange - a mixture of pink, orange and champagne white, when swirl together it creates a peachy pink and when swatched on my arms it came up as a baby pink. It does show up as a subtle pink flush shade on my face but that is when I pack a lot the products on, otherwise it doesn't show up well.

Overall, it is always nice to try out new brands and new products. Karadium Ribbon Marble Blusher is available to purchase at beautynetkorea.com (US $22.50), as mentioned there are three shades to choose from from this range. If you have lighter skin tones like I do, I would suggest shade #3 Gold Peach, I haven't tried it myself, but I have seen beautiful swatches of Gold Peach on light skin girls and it looks absolutely gorgeous as a highlighter! 

Even thou the compact's design and packaging is good quality and the marble blush inside is beautiful, I will not be re-purchasing. There are much high quality blushes in the market that you can purchase with US $22.00 or less; MAC powder blushes are US $22.00 each and the quality is ten times better than the Karadium one.

  1. Aw, it's unfortunate that the color didn't show up on your skin considering the price it's at. I love how the product looks, but not enough for me to even think about purchasing it.
