... well, not normally anyway.
Cheeky have just launched their new Kiss and Tell Lip and Cheek Tints, and I'm sorta obsessed with them.
At the moment, there's 2 shades for you to have a play with: Bed of Roses (a bright rose pink), and Flare Play* which I've been testing out this week.
It might not look so tempting in the pan (hello scary bright red), but I pinky promise that it actually comes out as a gorgeous peachy-coral shade, and can be used on both the cheeks and the lips as I did, above... us girls just love a multi-tasker.
The product is housed in some pretty cool, kitsch packaging, and the tint itself is enriched with beeswax, Carnauba wax and Castor oil, all of which act to hydrate the skin and leave a healthy, dewy finish to the cheeks. The tint can be a little drying on the lips, but it's nothing a little lip balm lovin' can't solve.
You can apply this with your fingers, but I've taken to using the Real Techniques Stippling Brush with it, taking off excess product on the back of my hand before lightly stippling onto the cheeks. The product blends beautifully, and leaving a gorgeous, glowy finish. I've found some cream blushes to be seriously difficult to work with as soon as they're on the skin, but the tint doesn't set too quickly, leaving plenty of time to blend it out... or in my case, slap on even more.
The Tints aren't available online quite yet, but keep your wits about as they'll be going live soon... but if you're London-based, you can pick up them up at the Cheeky Parlour in Shoreditch.... I might just have to make a little trip to London to get my hands on the other shade.
