This product is genius. I use this as lip color. As a lip color it also gives a nice and subtle look. I absolutey love it for that, as I'm not a big fan of gloss or lipstick during the day. The best part is that it lasts a really long time. All it does is add color though, it's not moisturizing and it doesn't add shine (but it's not drying either, for me at least). So I always apply this, wait till it's dry, which doesn't take too long, and then apply a clear lipbalm on top of it. This works great. The color stays on my lips completely and it then has a nice subtle glow to it aswell.
I like the idea of using it as a blush (and tried it, stayed on for a long time), but I just don't like the color with my skintone. It makes me look like I have irritated cheeks or something. I prefer peachy colors on my cheeks.

I will just start off by saying that I only use this on my cheeks, not my lips. I like a lighter lip look so I only use this as a blush.
Before this I was using Smashbox O-Glow, but was finding that it did not have any staying power. The Body Shop one lasts all day without fading. It turns out a very natural shade of pink, it just looks like I have a healthy glow. I am very fair and have always had a very hard time finding the right blush that looks natural. This is the best one yet! And compared to what I was using before, it is very affordable. Less than half the price of Smashbox and an even better product.
UPDATE: This is also a great base for powder blushes, it helps my blush stay on longer. And since this cheek stain turns out pretty much the same colour as when I naturally blush, it doesn't really interfere with the colours of other blush products.
UPDATE #2: I have now used this on my lips and liked it! Not something I would wear all the time, but I needed a somewhat darker lip colour that still looked natural on the day I used this. The staying power was really good and unlike alot of red lip colours, it actually looked natural and not overdone. You can layer it to get the colour that you want. I would recommend applying a lip balm over it, otherwise it is drying, and apply the lip balm with your finger or you will get red on your lip balm.

at first when i got this product i thought i would only use it on my cheeks however its the opposite way around. On the lips the colour is really subtle and a good alternative to lipstick or lipgloss as i dont like these on my lips. it also lasted a long time. i do wear it on my cheeks but it dries pretty quick so you have to be quick, the good points are that it last all day and the colour is nice, natural and subtle.
some people are saying the applicator isnt very good but i just apply to lips or cheeks and blend it with your finger.

I don't like the applicator at all. It's too wet and deposits most of the color on the outside of my lips. I also didn't like how drying it was on my cheeks or my lips - and how much I had to use to get *any* color on my lips. There are way too many fun lip stains to use for my to buy this again.

I just love this product!! But only for my cheeks, as I agree with others that it's too drying for lips.
The colour looks natural and is very flattering. I "seal" this with powder blush, which gives it great staying power. It has given me no problems like allergies, dry skin etc.
If you're on a budget, I guess a cream or powder blush is a better choice, though. Although TBS products are reasonably priced, this product won't last you as long as a powder blush will.

I love how this blush looks at the end of the day, its funny how natural it look during the end of the day. It gives a natural rosy flush and glow. One tip is to use moisturizer before slapping on this blush. Layer the blush quickly on the apple of your cheeks quickly and wash your hands before it stains your fingers. I don't use the applicator as it doesn't gives me time to quickly rub the stain on the cheeks. I have tried this on the cheeks but can't seem to see any color coz my lips are naturally dark red.

The color is unflattering on my cheeks. Besides, it's very drying on the lips.
This product doesn't even come close to the BeneTint from BeneFit.
The only time I would use it is if I had nothing else on me and had to throw on some makeup. It is very portable though. That's about the only good thing.

Don't quite like this. At first it gives me pale pink cheeks, but lately I never get that colour again. It's unflattering, some kind of dark pink on my NC20 skin. I can't use this on the lips, it's very drying and using lipbalm underneath will make the tint slides. BTW because it's so drying on the lips, I'm afraid it will dry out my cheeks too, since I'm dry-combination. I seldom use this anymore. Won't buy again. I'll stick to powder/cream consistency when it comes to TBS blushes.

Brilliant product. Very similar to Benfit's Benetint but cheaper and a better consistency I think. It's more of a gel then a liquid like the Benetint, so I personally find it easier to blend as it doesn't run as fast! Gives a lovely natural rosey flush to the cheeks, very quick and easy to apply. It doesn't come out half as red bright as it looks in the tube, fear not! Would definitely repurchase.

It's very nice, cute rouge color. If you put one layer on your lips, you'll have sort of a natural color on your lips, and if you put about three layer's they'll be a bright magenta. Also looks nice and natural blushy on the cheeks.

Love this for a natural, lasting glow. I've never been thrilled with powder blushes - they tend to look cakey on me. This stuff is so natural looking. A little goes a long way though - I learned that the hard way! It's easy to use too much and end up looking like you have a fever! Use less than you think you need and blend, blend, blend. I use my fingertip to apply after my foundation and before a light dusting of translucent powder. A small amount of powder sets this product nicely and it lasts on me until I wash my face at night. I'm not so crazy about using this on my lips, it makes me look like I've been drinking Cherry Kool-Aid. For a cheek stain though, I'll use nothing else!
