I purchased this as a lip stain and it doesn't apply evenly for me no matter what I do. Looks blotchy. Would not repurchase.

When I first used this product, I loved it. The product went nicely over my lips and was a cute blush also. I loved the colour - it was quite a deep pink but super natural and wearable. I loved the applicator also.

However, the second time I used this product, the stain went on terrible over my lips, despite buffing the skin. It only stuck to the inside of my lips and nowhere else. The wear also isn't great - I don't expect an extraordinary amount of wear from a stain, but I'd still like something that lasts longer than half an hour.

Still really cute on the cheeks and I love that The Body Shop is against animal testing, but not one of their best products. Will finish using however.... hopefully it'll go nicely on my lips again one day and that bad day was just a one off!

I rate this as 4.5 but just bumped it up to 5. I've used up 2 bottles of this product and I really do love it. I love how if you use the product on your cheeks, it stains beautifully. For the lips, I find it a bit drying but it doesn't claim to be a moisturizer so I can't really argue with that. Probably the only con I can think of is its packaging as it has a doe foot applicator which could be a bit unhygienic. I personally don't mind it but it could be a problem for some.

True to its name, this stuff really does stain your skin. It's gorgeous but a bit tricky to remove. I've not tried it on my lips so not sure how it goes there but as a cheek stain, very impressed.

I only use this for my cheeks. I love how natural it looks compared to the powder type. But I noticed I got some minor pimples after days of using it. I stopped for a while and went back to my Mary Kay blusher. I'll try to use it again in a few days or so.

I got this during that period when I wanted to "simplify" my makeup routine, & what better way to do that than by getting a 2-in-1 product, right? TBS here advertises it as one of their bestsellers, so I gave it a try. Unfortunately, I just didn't get what the fuss is about. As a lip stain, it applied streakily & unevenly, & didn't last long. Also had a weird taste to it. As a cheek tint, I didn't like the color on me (I'm a pale to light SE Asian with Chinese heritage), it registers as "She's wearing blush!!!" no matter how much I blended it in. The multitasking product actually complicated my makeup routine instead of simplifying it. I ended up giving it to one of my friends, who has a more olive skin tone & she ended up liking it.

Pros- good blusher, nice pinky red flush to cheeks and it's reasonably long lasting. Cons- terrible lip stain! Doesn't last for more than half an hour, seriously! Also the bottle leaks so infant keep it in my makeup bag- it has to be kept upright all the time :(

I wouldn't buy it again purely because I have bad this for years. Does work wonders for your lips. Too scared to use it else wear can be quiet intense. But very long lasting. Great for nights out

I found it pricey years ago but bought it last christmas since it was sold up to 50 percent off. So I bought two and I have no regrets!
After toning my skin properly I usually look forward to my cheeks and lips bec that's where the most important elements are to complete the look. Before putting on bb cream, I swipe a bit of lip balm on my lips. I wait for about 20 seconds to start the magic. I sweep the tint on the apples of my cheeks and using my fingers I blend until it looks natural. It has a good texture so you do not have to worry much about too much redness. A few dots is what you need. That's for natural pinkish cheeks. You can add some more just make sure you give time to set it on your skin before reapplying.

Sweep or dot on your lips and use your pinky to set all over lips. You can do this twice for a fuller look. You can always experiment on the layering to see what look you want to achieve. You can also sweep a little lip gloss if it feels dry. It would look natural.

The packaging is sleek and nice and it is not watery. It doesn't spill. The color is just right. It's like colored juice on your lips.^^ I love how my cheeks feel. They don't appear flaky.

I am always excited every time I use this. That's every time I want a simple, pretty and perky look.
