You can forget about the highlighter. You can even skip contour but never ever the blush. Well, for me at least. I’m morena to the core and I don’t have that flushed cheeks that mestizas have so I rely on my trusted blushes and tints to give my skin that healthy glow of color. But on days that I feel like glamming up for an event, all three are necessary to achieve that extra oomph, if you know what I mean. 😉 How convenient is it to have all three products in one travel-friendly packaging such as this Look Beauty Cheeky Trio. <3

LOOK Beauty Cheeky Trio.
All you need for supermodel cheekbones — The cheeky trio already contains a Bronzer, Blusher and Highlighter. Sculpt, flush and highlight your way to perfection!
Look Beauty Cheeky Trio comes in three shades: Candy Floss, Strawberry Bon Bon and this one, Peach Melba. My first choice was Candy Floss but at the last minute, I though Peach Melba would be a better fit for my morena skin. The bronzer, left most pan, is a medium matte brown shade with a tinge of orange while the blush in the middle is a lovely coral-peach shade that blends well with Pinay skin tone. And on the right most pan is the highlighter – a pearly white color with equally white iridescent finish that gives the skin a gorgeous glow.
Just from the looks for it you’ll see how huge the pans for each shades are. You get a great amount of product in this 3-in-1 compact. I like the plastic compact, though, the size of the mirror is too small to be of any use. It’s nice, too, that instead of squeezing in a sub-par blush brush, they opted to just make the pans bigger. <3
Quick Guide on How to Use Look Beauty Cheeky Trio: Sweep the bronzer on the hallows of the cheeks and with whatever is left in the brush, run it down on the sides of the nose for a subtle nose line. Apply blush on the apples of the cheeks and then pat a little amount of highlighter on the highest point of the cheeks while blending it towards the sides of your face. Viola! A more sculpted face without going under the knife. 🙂
Note: It is of utmost important that the bronzer is matte because if it contains even the slightest shimmer, it will emphasize what you are trying to slim down, Shimmers reflect light to it attracts more attention. Thus, defeating the entire purpose of contouring. Although the highlighter need not have shimmers – it can be any shade that is slightly lighter than your skin tone. 🙂
Look Beauty Cheeky Trio is definitely a good-quality product. They’re true to their color and they’re very pigmented as well. The blush and the highlighter could be a bit powdery at times given that they have shimmer particles so the fall outs are to be expected, of course – still tolerable since it is very minimal. The bronzer looks orange-y on the pan but not on the skin. It actually looks great on the skin. It doesn’t look forced or fake as you take your time building up the contour.
They all have decent staying power of around 4 hours before it starts to fade. The highlighter is always the first one to become blurry probably as the shimmers slowly fall off or as oiliness takes its toll. Even with that, Look Beauty Cheeky Trio is still an awesome product for such an affordable price.
