The Body Shop - Lip & Cheek Stain Review

What it is:

Give cheeks a healthy glow and lips a wash of color with a dual-purpose stain that complements all complexions.

What does it do:
  • Gel-based formulation is fast drying and easy to blend.
  • Glycerin and pathenol moisturize lips and improve hydration.
  • Angled applicator brush and well on the stem pack is designed for easy application, while minimizing product spillage.

How to use it: Dab on cheeks or lips using the provided applicator, then blend using your fingertips or our Professional Makeup Sponge.
To keep your lips kissably soft, exfoliate two to three times a week with our Lip Scuff. Because the Lip & Cheek Stain is fast drying, apply to one cheek at a time to allow more time for blending.

I have a couple of lip and cheek stains  including Benefit's benetint , Revlon's Pinch me for cheeks and Just bitten for lips. I prefer using them in hotter weather when i dont feel like wearing much makeup and keep it natural and minimal.The great thing about tints is of course, is that they do not come off easily.
If you like to travel a lot like me and you want to pack light unlike me then The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain is a great way to save space.
I usually found tints  easier to use by first dabbing it on and blending with my fingers.It stains fingers, so you have to remember to wash hands after applying it if you are applying it with fingers as i do.At first application it doesn't show up as much, but i keep layering it until i get my desired shade.I usually wear it in my cheeks but when i am wearing it on my lips , i mostly add gloss or some lip stick to give my lips a little Omphh !!
The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain has no smell and taste which i love about it.Texture  alot better than benetint. Its not as watery as that, infact it has gel like consistency, which i find non sticky.
The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain contains Panthenol and Glycerin which moisturise and hydrate the skin! 

Packaging:  The Stain comes in a clear tube with a silver lid and a doe foot applicator

Final Say:
This is a great product to have around .Just add a dash of this Lip & Cheek S
tain and you'll look fresh and natural without the fuss.

Ingredients :Water, Glycerin, Phenoxyethanol, Panthenol, Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer, Methylparaben, Aminomethyl Propanol, Red 33.
