MY REVIEW:

PRICE:

  • £19.00 for 7ml./0.24 fl oz tube

PACKAGING:

  • Metal tube with screw cap.
  • Be aware that the product has a tendency to ooze out if the tube has been compressed.
  • Note: I have read of people having problems with the plastic tube breaking but i havent experienced this and I bought my first tube back in 2006

SHADES AVAILABLE:

  • 3 shades

Peach Beach Tint.
  • Peach – a peachy shade
  • Raspberry – a cherry red shade (New release. Been waiting for this since I tried the watermelon tint back in 2006!)

FORMULAE:

  • Texture : A runny slightly liquidity texture. Has a tendency to have colourless oily liquid coming out if you don’t give the tube a shade first. Blends like a dream on the cheeks. However, i felt that on my lips, it had a waxy feeling on. It did feel much better once i put lipgloss over it (as per sa’s suggestions).
  • Coverage: Flexible depending on how much you use on application – you can get full or sheer pigmented colour.
  • Moisturising: Good moisturising properties – no chapping or drying of lips.
  • Scent /taste : A synthetic sweet watermelon/raspberry fragrance. Has a waxy taste.
  • Lasting Power:  Amazing!! Tested the lasting power of this product on a 7hour flight. Because of limitations to carry – on, I used this for my cheeks n lips 2 hours before the flight. After the 7 hour flight, my cheek and lip makeup still looked fresh as if i had just put it on (even with all the eating & drinking on board).
  • Build-ability: Excellent!! I can use this on top of my TM/ sunblock/ liquid foundation and powder or powder foundations and even a powdered bronzer with no streaking or balling up. No problems with building up the colour either but its best to go slowly and lightly cos a tiny amount really goes a long way and its easy to go OTT. I can layer lip balm or glosses over this too!

THE RESULT:

There are no shimmers in the product…so it looks really natural on. Blends well on cheeks so it looks like your lovely “flush” comes from within.  The product gives a nice pinkish shade on the lips. Product didnt dry out my lips or cause any block pores for the cheeks at all!

VERDICT:-

Highly recommended for a natural look and its multi-purpose functions!

  • For use on cheeks.
  • For use on lips.
  • For use on occasions when one requires long lasting makeup.
  • For use on occasions when one does not have access to brushes.
  • Excellent for travelling – Helps lighten weight of bag when travelling cos of its multi-purpose usage and its packaging is lightweight and durable.

Hope this helps!
