[picture from ichibankao.com]
These lovely new blushes from Aube Couture retail for roughly 25USD, promosing to deliver a sculpted [contoured??] look that is accomplished by the way the blusher is pressed in the pan. As you can see in the picture above, the top and bottom are slanted so it makes the middle of the pan higher. It's..hm...kind of like those McDonalds fry cartons, if they folded in the top too.
I don't know about the look it's supposed to give, but logic says that if you swipe a brush evenly across the surface, the part that is raised higher gets more pigment--and the overall effect is to make your cheeks 'sculpted'.
They are a bit on the sheer side--I would call them medium pigment, but able to be layered and I think it makes them alot more wearable. Not bad, with that fancy packaging for 25$.
