Body shop lip & cheek tint review

Normally I would never trust Body Shop to do good makeup products, as they're most well-known as a bodycare brand, so I'd assume they'd be best at those kinda products. So, I was slightly sceptical when my aunt gave me this cheek & lip stain in 02 (they couldn't even come up with a good name!). However, when I tried this out I was pleasantly surprised by the gorgeous rose-gold/bronze colour that came out of the tube!

 The stain has the same effect and is quite a similar colour to a couple of the stila cheek stains (like coconut crush), but for a good deal cheaper at only £10! A nice side effect was that when I removed the bronze colour, the product left a deep raspberry hue behind, which made my lips look so nice, making it 2 products for the price of one! There is a beautiful gold shimmer run through the tint, meaning it almost reflects and is super eye-catching. 

 I would rate this product a 3.5/5, because apart from the actual colour (which I guess IS the main part), it's pretty unremarkable - the packaging is boring, the name is boring etc. 
I guess I'm kinda a sucker for cute names! However, for the price this is a top-quality product and I would definitely buy it again.

P.S. hope you're all having a wonderful day, unlike me feeling sick and skipping my play rehearsals... :(


  1. I do like the colour on you, I think it has a very pretty goldish sheen to it.
    So sorry to hear you're having a rough day, hope you feel better soon!

    Thank you for visiting my blog, I hope to visit again!!
