Who doesn’t like products which serves multiple purposes??? We all do right??? This was the very first reason I opted for this product which can be applied on lips as a lip color and as well as a blush on cheek.
Sounds cool??? Well, let me tell you one thing – most of the high brand lipsticks can be used as a blush or eyeshadow. But chances are that due to their thick consistency they might clog your facial pores and cause breakouts. Where as using the ones which are formulated to serve these purposes, is quite safer.
So one of my favorite cosmetics and skin care brands – The Body Shop has this multipurpose product – Lip and Cheek Stain.
Lets get to know every detail of this range and of course my take on it.
The Body Shop
995 INR for 7.5 ml (Now offer price 895 INR)
Shade I Own:
003 Red Pomegranate
What Does The Company Claims:
It comes in a plastic bottle. It resembles a nail paint bottle. Plastic used is sturdy and lid is tight enough to carry this tiny bottle with you.
The applicator is dove feet shaped. Soft and helpful for a easy application.
Liquid like consistency. But dries off quickly.
Its a red shade. Color payoff is good on lips. Looks quite natural. This can be pulled off by the beginners too.
But color payoff would have been much better on cheeks. (Check the picture where I have rubbed off the tint just like we do for any blush.)
Very faint fragrance which hardly smell. So if you have sensitive nose, you can use this without any fear of strong smell.
Honestly I am disappointed with it’s staying power on lips. It stays for max an hour and a half. Not more.
As a cheek stain, it’s work is nothing extraordinary. It is hardly visible on cheeks. Need multiple swipes to get it working.
Is it moisturizing???
Ummm I can say it did add a bit of moisture and didn’t dry my lips.
Does it Transfers??
Yes a bit. But that’s ok. Almost all lipsticks do.
What I liked about The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain:
- Cruelty free product. No furry friend is used for testing the product. #happyMe
- Travel friendly packing
- Good quality applicator
- Fragrance free formula
- Doesn’t dry lips.
- Didn’t break my skin when used as a cheek stain.
What I didn’t like about The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain:
- Color payoff could have been improved.
- Staying power is very less.
- Need multiple swipes if used as cheek stain.
Will I repurchase???
Umm I love The Body Shop products. But this one is a big no for me.
Will I Recommend???
I didn’t find it worth the money we are paying. Because from a lipstick the first thing we expect is the staying power. I am not happy with that. So may be a No.
