▢ General Expectations of GROOMING GEL

✔Blendable Smooth and Blendable. However, I dislike the texture when you apply
✔ Soft-focus sheer cheek tint / Filtered Flush
✔ Silky matte finish
✔ Ultra-fine pigments
✔ Does it offer a good range of colors? The Airblush comes in 6 different shades. It covers your peach, pinks, nude and reds which is a good general range.
✔ For all skin tones?
╸Is it something new compared to pre-existing brands? No, this reminds me of Glossier Cloud Paint except in pot formula.
= Is it different in formula? It is slightly different from pot style blush’ I have tried. I don’t like the texture when you use your hands, it leaves an oily residue and feels uncomfortable even after you apply it. I use a brush to apply it, so I don’t have to experience it.
= Is it different in terms of colors? The name and the shade range is super similar to Glossier Cloud Paint. Cloud Paint offers six colors and its similar and almost exact colors that Air Blush offers, which also offers six colors.
✔ Is it different in packaging design? Minimal packaging is nice, I like how they showcase the color in front.
╸ Unique Branding? Sunnies Face has created a more affordable version of Glossier, the Airblush is half the price. The use of bold font and the speaking tone are very similar except the brand color is different.
✔ Packaging Design: Simple and Sleek
✔ Color: Very balanced choice of colors
✔ Typography: Readable
╸Is the packaging sustainable? The packaging consists of a box and then inside is the product itself made of hard plastic. If you have it delivered via Lazada or Zalora. The packaging is incredibly wasteful they come in nude bubble wrap and they only include 1 or 2, when it can fit more.
= Where is it made and do they have a large carbon foot-print for manufacturing the product? It is manufactured in PRC which in People's Republic of China, which is China. I don’t think manufacturing in China is a bad thing, but they have done a good job at rewording it and making it seem like its not made from China. The carbon footprint wouldn’t be so large considering China isn’t very far from the Philippines. However their shipping packaging is not sustainable at all and is a bit excessive which contributes a lot of waste.

✔ Price vs Product Amount-
After searching blushes within the same type of coverage, finish, formulation and skin type. Here is a comparison. It offers very little product compared to the ELF product and considering they manufactured this in China the price markup from actual production cost is probably higher.
