Review: Kiss Me Ferme Brightening Cheek

This review is long overdue as I wasn’t really planning on it. However, I’ve realized that finding cosmetics that aren’t harsh for acne-prone skin is as important as skincare products. And my reviews are dedicated to those who are in the same boat.

I’ve been so comfortable with this for over a year now. I know that I’m supposed to use this for up to 12 months, but I just can’t let go of it easily. What’s with this little thing?

Color: 03 Coral Red, 2.9 g, SRP: 600 yen (excluding tax)


  • A brightening blush that gives a natural finish with a transparent color.
  • Covers the dullness and makes the complexion look brighter.
  • The natural gloss creates a youthful and firm three-dimensional effect.
  • Contains chamomile extract, a moisturizing ingredient.
  • Comes with a horse-hair brush.
  • 5 colors
  • Made in Japan

I’ll be upfront about why I still use it even if it’s beyond the recommended date of use. It lives up to its features.

Can you notice the natural finish but blushing effect?

Other things I like about it:

  • paraben-free
  • unscented
  • handy
  • blends well
  • The color doesn’t look funny on me.
  • long-lasting
  • The brush works fine.
  • Quite affordable for its quality.
  • Can be worn on a daily basis or any makeup look.
  • Doesn’t irritate my face or cause acne.

I honestly can’t think of anything that goes under cons right now and I’m not even paid to say this. To state the obvious, I surely recommend this. Here’s me wearing it on a movie date.
