2aN Dual Cheek Blush Review

Updated: Mar 19

I rarely do makeup reviews, but as my skincare collection grows larger and larger, I am more tempted to look into the realm of decorative products. For years, I didn’t own and didn’t use blush at all, then graduated to applying it on special occasions. Today, I’m trying to use it a bit more often. I needed something simple to use, low maintenance, and affordable.


2aN Dual Cheek Blush caught my eye. It is available in 5 variations, with two blendable shades each. The colors can be mixed, layered, or used on their own.

2aN Dual Cheek Blush

All varieties are sold on Jolse and Amazon (descriptions are from the brand):

  • #01 Cotton Candy Violet: A white-pink color highlighter and a tinted lavender color

  • #02 Love, Rosie: A baby pink color and a slightly down-toned pink color

  • #03 Coco Coral: A soft coral-ish baby pink color and a salmon-orange color

  • #04 Hot Living Coral: A vibrant pink color and a peach color

  • #05 Mood In Cheek: A down-toned beige coral color and a rose color


I chose #05 Mood In Cheek. This is my first 2aN product. The brand name is curious and stands for “To Awake Nature”.

My impressions

This is exactly what I needed! I have combination skin with an oily t-zone and dry/normal cheeks. I tried cream blushes for a while, and those were ok, but didn’t give me my preferred matte-ish finish. The 2aN Dual Cheek Blush is the more classic pressed powder with a natural / matte look. It’s not drying at all and lasts all day. I apply it with a soft, medium-sized brush. I’m 99% sure I’m using the wrong kind of brush (again, my makeup skills are questionable) and it works awesome. I don’t touch anything up, and my face still looks fine by the end of the day. I often end up reapplying sunscreen on top, usually via sun sticks, and that doesn’t seem to affect the blush placement at all.

The colors are very pretty. I’m fair and prone to freckles. I want my makeup to do something noticeable but not look like I fell face first into a bucket of paint. I bet this can be built up to a more robust / bright color, but I use the bare minimum just to put a bit of color in my pale skin. I love the look - it’s subdued enough to pass for “I woke up like this”, but makes me look much more awake and vibrant than I actually am. Applying 2aN blush adds under 30 seconds total to my morning routine, so it’s not a dreadful chore. I will definitely check out the brand’s other offerings to add to my tiny makeup collection.
