My review is dedicated to the Cheek & Lip Stain by Benefit
PACKAGING - It looks like a small bottle that really resembles a nail polish.
The High Beam highlighter is packed in the same-looking packaging, but a smaller one.
APPLICATOR - small and thick synthetic brush. Like of a nail polish again. It’s very convenient to use.
SIZE- I have a mini-sized bottle which is of 4 ml. The full sized product has 13 ml.
TEXTURE - runny and watery.
SHADE - Inside the bottle the pigment looks red and berry-like. It reminds me of a color of the apple that Snow White ate. When I blend it out, it looks like a real natural flush. I’ve never had such a beautiful and natural-looking flush on my cheeks. Even my natural flush isn’t so natural-looking
CHEEKS: I usually apply the pigment on the apples of my cheeks and blend out thoroughly. If you blend the product out and you see that there isn’t enough of the pigment for you, then apply more and again blend it out, It’s better to follow this technique as if you apply too much if the product, you have a chance to stain your cheeks.
ON MY CHEEKS: As I’ve already said the flush looks very natural. It’s real and like I’ve been outside in frosty weather.
ON MY LIP: My lips look as though I was kissing with a lippie on, but neatly and gently of course.
LONGEVITY: it’s fantastic! The product stays on my cheeks for the entire day. On the lips the staying power isn’t as phenomenal as on the cheeks but still very good.
PECULIARITIES: The most difficult thing is that the product is well pigmented and there’s always a chance to stain your skin. And don’t forget that it isn’t so easy to remove. And of course it’s a little bit drying on my lips.
I’m very happy that I’ve bought this product in a mini bottle. It’s uber economical and will go a long way! I want to say that I was expecting something more from the product. I expected it to be phenomenal, but actually this one turned out to be just a usual lip and cheeks tint.
I recommend you buy a mini of this product as well. This will go a long way and you’ll have the opportunity to try it out. And in the case you’ll fall for it, buy a full sized product.
Thanks for the attention!
