I have this Etude House Fresh Cherry Blusher Duo for a while now but never had the chance to use it until now. I bought it because it reminds me of the Stila Convertible Color compact I have with Lillium and Gerbera ^.^

This is one of the very few Etude House cream blushers I've seen floating around, along with the newer line of Tangerine Cheek Cream Blusher that has only 4 color variations. Not sure why there aren't more of these. I love cream cheek colors, don't you? And it's not like Etude House can't make a decent cream blusher, judging from the nice quality of this Fresh Cherry Blusher Duo.
Anyway, this compact has a pretty pearly lilac flip top with translucent eggplant color base. There is a mirror underneath the lid. The compact feels nice, not too bulky but not too tiny either.
The colors are nothing like Stila's Lillium and Gerbera of course. It's a cool rose pink on the left and a reddish coral on the right, both are matte without any shimmers at all. They are a little more translucent than Stila Convertible Colors but are still quite pigmented to turn me into a clown if I'm not careful. That is to say I don't need much at all, may be a couple of dabs, for the colors to show up nicely after blended. The lasting power is great. I would apply some in the early evening to go out to dinner and come home late at night still with flushed cheeks (though I'm sure alcohol contributes too :P). The texture of the cream is thick and smooth, though I would say it has a touch of clay in it, if that makes any sense. So while you can definitely use this as a lip tint, it would probably be a bit drying. Fragrance wise, if I sniff it closely, I find a light fruity scent, though it could be because I store it together with my other scented cosmetics.
