There's only one person I can blame for making me buy this blush, Essie Button. She has this power to persuade me to buy everything she likes. Essie once posted her fave red blush and this Josie Maran was one of them. Since I don't have red blush at all, I decided to buy this because I think it's different with all of my blushes. Blushes are my weakness, after all. But instead of blame, I should've thank Miss Button because of her recommendation. This blush is VERY NICE.
The packaging is very simple and sophisticated. The lid matches the blush so if you have some of this you can easily spot which one you need.

This blush is totally unique. It's like jelly (hence the name, duh) but it's not jiggly so it doesn't break when I push my finger in it. If you push too hard on one side, the other side will rise. Just like that jelly that you eat. But since it's not so jiggly, I think it's more like hard agar consistency. Ok I'm not going further about this product similarity with food. But it's cute and different, I like it very much. :D

The pigmentation is nice. It's pigmented but not too pigmented so you don't end up with too red cheeks. It looks like cream blush but feels more like stain than cream blush when I swatch it. I tried to use fingers to apply it but I think fingers are not my best friend because I can't blend it properly. Or maybe I just put too much, I don't know. So I use Real Technique's stippling brush. The jar opening is the same size as the brush's diameter so it's very easy to get the product to the brush. I find it really easy to blend, not patchy at all, and gives nice flush to the cheeks. 
It is infused with 50 percent-pure coconut water, it instantly hydrates while nourishing with the powerful benefits of vitamin E-rich argan oil. I don't feel the hydration on my cheeks but when I swatch this on the back of my hand, the part with this blush feels softer and smoother than the other part. Maybe with daily use my cheeks can get softer?
Staying power is crazy! I have oily skin, most blushes fade after 5 hours mark but this gelée stays for 12 hours++! If I don't need to clean my face I think it'll stay there, not going anywhere. This is the first beauty product that I will definitely repurchase. I'm thinking of getting the other colors too! 

I rarely have FOTD with the item I'm reviewing but I really love this product so I managed to take some snaps of me wearing it haha! I wore it thinly to look natural so it looks more pink than red. If I put too much I'd look like I just get slapped lol
