Yes, I'm grumbling at the start because I had to redo this WHOLE review PLUS

This swatch was taken about a year ago?

Without further ado, let's jump in straight.
Diamond Beauty Cheek Color in Number 3, Honey Orange 「ダイアモンドビュティ チークカラー ０３： ハニーオレンジ」
Product Weight : 6g
Product Ingredients: Talc, Mica, Iron Oxide, Red 226, -Sorry I will re-translate
the ingredients again when I have time, currently busy with studying for my
Blush type: Shimmer
Packaging: 7/10 - I felt that Sho-bi could have done a better job at packaging.
Sure, the transparent packaing is really pretty but it is also tad bit heavier than
other brands and with just the word smacked across the top [well, there is a
little diamonte at the "I"], it is something many will over look.
Pigmentation: 9/10 - The color looks just like the photos; rich and pigmented.
I thought it might look a tad bit dark but when I brushed it over my cheeks,
but it came out look fabulous!
Texture: 8/10 - Smooth but slightly more fallout when brushed compared to
candy doll. I'm guessing it is not pressed as tightly? Not a biggie since I use
a blush brush anyway.
Blendability : 8.5/10 - It blends with my foundation easily, does not make me
look like there are 2 ovals of blush slapped on my cheeks. I can easily lighten
the colour by blending it out.
Lasting Power: 8/10 - I always wear this blush when I go clubbing [because
it suits my eye make-up best] and by the time I get home, I can still detect
slight colour on my cheeks. That is about 7 hours?
Availability: 2/10 - I bought it long ago, shipping it over myself from Japan.
I am not doing preorders for it as of now too so I really don't know where else
can you get it besides shipping it at an exorbitant price.
Price: 8/10 - I think I paid about $21 after shipping. Can't really remember
because I bought it so long ago!
Repurchase: Yes. It's so versatile, I use it at least once to twice a week!
Overall Rating: 8.5/10
I was very reluctant to do this review because I had actually translated
EVERY single ingredient from katakana and kanji to english... Painstakingly
typed them out only to get everything(including the review) deleted when I
published it due to unknown reason. Nonetheless... I really like this product
and it is one of my holy grail so I sat down and redid the whole thing.
Hope you guys like it!
