A strawberry nose is according to the web:
“rhinophyma /rhi·no·phy·ma/ (-fi´mah) a form of rosacea marked by redness, sebaceous hyperplasia, and nodular swelling and congestion of the skin of the nose.”
Then there’s the orange peel cheeks, that show off the pores.
I couldn’t resist these super cute products from Dariya:
I don’t know if I actually have a strawberry nose, but I know there’s a lot of redness there.
Pollyfilla for the cheeks:
What it’s supposed to do – fill it out!
I am obviously just naieve because I was hoping for some crushed strawberries and orange in these creams. Infact they are more like concealers. The Strawberry nose thicker and opaque. As its a base, I guess it shouldn’t matter what colour it is – it matched my skin fine, if I were very pale or very dark it may looks a bit odd. Orange cheeks is thinner and easier to blend in.
Very gross cheek and nose with nothing off, after a face mask:
After one layer of both products – orange cheeks on the – well cheek, and the strawberrynose in the crevice of the nostril:
There are lots of Japanese products that do this kind of thing I am guessing because large pores is more of a problem for Asian skin types? I liked using these too although it is extra effort applying an all over primer, then targeting these areas with another type of base.
As I rule I’ll probably use these for when I know I am taking photos or special occasions – it’s just a bit fiddly although I do really like both items. The orange cheek is very effective and fun to use.
I bought mine from eBay here.
