Splurge or Steal: Mousse Blush

In my attempt to save and experience a little luxury, it became my mission to find products that maybe considered a "dupe" for high-end or expensive products.

For today's Splurge or Steal, it would be Mousse Blush.


SPLURGE

Okay, I know Maybelline Mousse Blush is a drugstore product and there are more expensive Mousse Blush available in the market. But for a cheapskate like me, this product is somehow over my budget (This girl needs to pay her bills, yah know). 

STEAL

I discovered Nichido through Say Tioco Artillero

Maybelline: Soft Plum, Nichido: Plum Brulee

Left: Maybelline, Right Nichido

Similarities:
  • Both have shimmer on them
  • Both are easy to apply
Difference:
  • Packaging
    • Maybelline is in a glass container and a little heavier while Nichido is in a plastic container.
    • Maybelline is a little bulky while Nichido is very handy.
    • Nichido actually has more product (7g). Maybelline is only 5.75g.
    • Nichido has expiry date unlike Maybelline.
  • Consistency:
Maybelline

Nichido is actually creamy.
  • Scent:
    • Maybelline has this strong scent that I can't explain. I smelled it a lot of times and it irritated my nose. lol
    • Nichido has that "old crayon" scent. lol... 
    • I can't smell the scent when I'm applying the product.
  • Price:
    • Maybelline was around QR 45.00 which is roughly Php 480.00.
    • Nichido was around Php 170.00.
I both love the products and will repurchase in case I ran out. I wanted to try other shades of Nichido Mousse Blush. 

Have you tried both products? What is your favorite shade?
