As with most lip and cheek tints, the colors look deeper, and in some -brighter (like you will be a little bit scared in trying them on) in the packaging than they do when you actually apply them on your skin. In my switches below, I will show you how the color looks heavier in the pot, but you will see how nicely it blends out, leaving behind a natural and pretty flush of soft color!
These balm-ish products didn’t go on as smooth and felt comfortable on my lips as I wanted them too so exfoliating is a must. If you have dry cracks on your lips, I suggest exfoliating because the tint may settle into those areas and won’t look as attractive. My lips have been really dry lately because of the dehydration, so I think I should have given them a good lip scrub first.
I only tested these once on my hand when I was meeting with one of the owners, Trish. And because was wearing makeup at that time, I only had the opportunity to try it on my hand but I immediately saw how pigmented and how moisturizing it was. I don’t wear cream-style blushes much, because I wear a lot of foundation, but the color of this cheek stain did last longer on my cheeks than it did on my lips.
Here’s a tip: If you end up putting on too much on your cheeks, do not fret! Apply moisturizer on your cheeks and it should soften the look. If you do not plan on wearing powder or foundation on top of your tints/stain, apply powder on top and what you will have is a cheek that looks like it is lit from within flush of color.
Overall, I thought these were a very nice formula and the colors are spot on for this gloomy weather! No more will I look so drab and pale for hubby at night, and in the morning I just look radiant! It’s weird that I use this only at night when I go to bed because I find the product very moisturizing!
