Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain Review

Hello lovelies, I am going to review The Body Shop Lip and Cheek stain in shade 01 Rose Pink.

Product Description:
This dual-purpose stain gives lips and cheeks a healthy-looking glow with one wash of color, or builds up for a richer, deeper coverage. A great base for lip products. Its moisturizing formulation helps to condition the skin. Dermatologically tested.

In my opinion:
I’ve been using this product for over 7months and I'm in love with it. It does not contain any shimmer and when applied gives a natural flushed look.  It comes with a sponge like applicator in a tube packaging. This lip stain dries in few seconds, the trick it to spread it quickly. The applicator does not come in handy while applying, use your fingers to blend. For cheeks, apply it on the apple of your cheeks and then quickly blend it in circular motion. For lips, dot is in the center of your lips and then spread it. The good thing is that you can build the color from natural looking to a deeper shade by applying another layer and repeat the step until you get your desired shade.

The Bad:
Packaging. It looks travel friendly but when you put into a bag it leaks all over the place. I can’t carry it in my makeup pouch without putting it in a zip-locked bag.
After some time I can feel lines appearing on my lips and it also dries them out. But considering the result I get, I’m willing to ignore this dryness. I apply a layer of non-tinted lip balm over it to make my lips soft.

Would I repurchase it? Price?
Yes, I will. I got it on sale for around 1100PKR (not sure, it’s been a long time)

Have any of you tried this lip stain? Let me know in the comments below :)
