What is it?
Similar to Benetint, this is a pink lip and cheek stain.
How is it different?
Instead of being a liquid stain, this is more of a gel. There is no strong scent, so you’re not smelling like roses. (wah, I love roses)
How does it work?
You can dab it on your lips and cheeks for a flush of natural looking color. The shade is pretty universal, and I think it would work with a variety of complexions.
The tube comes with a doe tip applicator.
I think this is easier to blend into your skin than Benetint, probably because it doesn’t run since it’s not a liquid formula.
The staying power is pretty low, I don’t think I’ve been able to make it through a work day with this. Even when I use a makeup spray, it doesn’t seem to stay on my cheeks.
I didn’t use it on my lips, because I’m a fan of lipsticks not lip stains. Plus, I don’t like to cross contaminate my products. I know, I’m slightly crazy.
Pro-tip – and this goes with ANY cheek stain – USE YOUR MAKEUP SPONGE. It makes a huge difference in how well you can blend the stains in your cheeks.
