I was on a “stained lips and flushed cheeks” phase a while ago and that’s when I got this TBS lip and cheek stain. So, I thought I would review this TBS Lip and Cheek Stain Red Pomegranate for you.
995 INR for 7.2 ml.
This dual-purpose liquid stain gives lips and cheeks a hint of natural-looking colour. Can be used under gloss for added intensity.
• For lips and cheeks
• Natural effect
• Dermatologically tested.
How To Use:
Dab onto lips or cheeks straight from the applicator. Blend using clean fingertips. Reapply for added intensity.
My Experience with The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain Red Pomegranate:
The product comes in a little bottle which is color coded. It has a sturdy black cap which holds the doe-foot applicator. It is a “no-brainer” kind of packaging which is simple yet nice. It can be carried around easily as well. The applicator is also fine to use.
“Red Pomegranate” is a nice juicy red color. I am not a big fan of pink lips, so I chose this shade. I feel it looks more natural than pink from this range. This will suit most of the skin tones with ease.
The texture of the stain is pretty watery; it helps to blend the product well. It is not very difficult to work with either, but I noticed that it takes a while to dry, so you cannot eat or drink immediately after application. The stain is super easy to blend and it looks so natural that it is easy to deceive eyes. On cheeks, it gives me the “flushed-from-within” kind of look. The pigmentation is not like bang-on, but it is definitely buildable. I honestly do not need such a product to be insanely pigmented either. There is always more room to build it up.
I can’t say this product is very long lasting because it is a stain, but it will survive a meal for sure, but fades in the process. I can sip water or drink coffee without bothering about it transferring, so that’s a good thing. It lasts for 5+ hours on an average I can say. It is not very drying on normal days, but my lips feel like they need to be well moisturized when they’re in a bad state. The best part is that it doesn’t stain your lips like crazy that it becomes difficult to take it off.
Honestly, I love this product for everyday use to get that “naturally flushed” cheeks and stained lips.
