The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain 01 Rose Pink Review & Swatches

The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain 01 Rose Pink Review & Swatches
Lip & Cheek Stains had been in my wish list for a long time. Though I had read mixed reviews about them but I feel I should have at least one. If you love light or natural colors on your lips especially during day time then you must try lip & cheek stains. Today I am going to review The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain in Rose Pink.

MBT says-
The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain comes in a sturdy, clear, lip gloss style plastic tube with a silver chrome finish screw top lid. As soon as the lid is opened, you will see a soft doe foot applicator wand that feels extremely soft on the lips. The packaging is attractive, glamorous and sophisticated. It is quite light and can be easily carried around in a bag without any spillage or leakage. The scent of the lip and cheek stain is very mild and is hardly noticeable when on lips. It does not have any weird taste though I have not the habit of licking my lips.
The formula of the lip & cheek stain is very runny just like liquid. I was a bit skeptical as how it will work when I saw the consistency. To apply the stain on your lips, you just need to apply it using the soft doe applicator. Make sure you wipe off excess on the mouth of tube as the applicator holds a lot of the stain. The stain does not apply evenly using the applicator and you need to use your finger to spread it out evenly and blend it in. You need to work a bit fast as the stain dries pretty soon on the lips. It gives a lovely, rosy natural look to my lips. I prefer going for lighter shade but you can always layer it up like I did in my lip swatch to get intense look. The stain feels a bit dry on my lips and highlights dry patches so I always make sure to top it up with a lip balm or lip gloss. That way my lips feel moisturized with a shiny smooth appearance. The stain lasts for a good 6-7 hours on my lips with eating and drinking. After that it starts fading leaving behind a pink tint. It feels light and comfortable on my lips. You can use it under your lip gloss to make it last long.

Applying lip & cheek stain on cheeks is super simple. You only need to place a few dots onto your cheeks where you apply blusher and blend it in with your fingers immediately. To my surprise, the color looks very subtle on my cheeks and does not make me look like a clown. Make sure you blend it right after applying it else it would leave patches of stain on your cheeks! It gives a pretty, natural flush of color to my cheeks that makes my face look fresh and glowy. It lasts on my cheeks for the whole day without being patchy. The best part is that it lasts really long.

Rose pink looks dark red in tube, pretty pink on lips and very subtle natural pink on cheeks. It gives a natural flush of color to my cheeks. You really do not need to fear to go overboard with this stain as it comes out really subtle and natural on cheeks. I love using it on my lips as it definitely looks natural and pretty! The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain is available in two shades- Rose Pink and Bronze Glimmer.

The only disadvantage that I could think of is using the applicator on lips and cheeks. Using the applicator on foundation then on lips sounds really unhygienic but you can always use a separate applicator. I apply the stain on my fingers, rub it slightly and then apply them on my cheeks. This way it blends the stain really well. Oh and it stains your fingers too so wash them right after application!
