This translucent liquid comes in a nail polish-like bottle with enclosed brush. You paint it on to lips and cheeks for a stained effect. Pussycat is a reddish shocking pink, which for many people will be similar to their natural lip shade, only brighter. As a blush, I find it hard to place and blend well. It also has a tendency to sink into and accentuate any flaws such as open pores. As a lip color, I find it more useable, but it has a tendency to creep over the lip border and seep into the surrounding skin, so you need to apply sparingly and carefully. The shade however is natural, and forms a long lasting base for lipsticks or glosses. You get plenty of product for the money, and because it's used so sparingly, it should last nearly forever. I prefer the quality and shade range of Vincent Longo's Lip and Cheek Gel Stains, but this is definitely better value for money, and superior in every respect to Benetint.
