Lip + Cheek Tint Review | The Body Shop

lnc

I haven’t had great experiences with lip and cheek stains in the past (I’ve ruined a few too many white shirts), but when Emma Watson called out The Body Shop’s Red Pomegranate Lip & Cheek Stain as one of her favs in her interview with Into the Gloss, I knew I had to try it. During her press tours Emma Watson has been documenting her favourite eco-friendly, cruelty free, and traceable beauty and fashion products. Emma Watson’s interview with Into the Gloss (Glossier’s blog) highlighted all of her favourite beauty products. I’ve been slowly going through the interview and trying out each product myself. Some are harder to find than this one – I had to hunt around on Amazon to get my hands on a tube of DHC’s Mascara, but in the end I hope to have in depth reviews of these great products so that those of you looking to shop cruelty free and eco friendly in beauty know what you’re buying! Here goes The Body Shop’s Lip & Cheek Stain. 

Emma Watson loves this product because:

– the Body Shop does a ton of work for the environment and fair trade

– it’s long lasting and good for everyday use

– it adds very natural looking colour to your face

– you can kiss someone when your wearing it (or in my case, eat lots of greasy foods) and it’s not going to come off

Product Performance

On all fronts this product does exactly what Emma said it would. It lasts suprisingly well even after eating (or kissing I guess), and the colour looks super natural on both your lips and your cheeks. I was worried the red would be a little too much, but it blends out absolutely perfectly and settles into a very natural colour – I was really shocked by this the first time I used it. My skin tone is definitely a lot darker than Emma’s but the colour still suits it wonderfully and I find that it even adds a more natural vibe to my face if I’m wearing a full face of makeup.

Swatches 

On skin: When it’s first applied the colour is very pigmented but it’s easy to rub into the places you want a little extra colour, and in the end the lines are blurred and natural looking.

On lips: Much like the skin, when first applied the colour is super pigmented, but it settles in easily and ends up with a subtle hint of red that lasts forever and looks incredibly natural.

Cost + Purchasing?

The Body Shop is one store that we actually have in Thunder Bay(what!!!)! I picked this up while I was out shopping at the mall (this literally never happens) and I randomly remembered that I wanted to try it! It’s only $16CAD and you can buy it online from The Body Shop’s website.

The Verdict?

I purchased this product less than a month ago and it’s already half gone. In the summer time I’m someone who rarely wears a full face of makeup, sunkissed undone beauty is my summer go-to and this product is perfect for that. I promise you I use it every day, whether I’m wearing any other makeup or not. I love that it’s not too pricey, and that you know what you’re getting when you support The Body Shop so I will definitely be repurchasing as soon as I run out.

      Yes!!! 9 times out of 10 I use my fingers to apply any makeup, this has a tip similar to a lip gloss that makes it easy to apply and rub in with your fingers🤗
