BEAUTY ON TEST
Along with two trusty readers, we put lip and cheek tints and overnight oils to the test. Which will be our new beauty heroes?
LIP AND CHEEK TINTS
A DUAL PRODUCT THAT GIVES LIPS AND CHEEKS A COLOUR HIT – WE’RE LOOKING FOR A FORMULA THAT LASTS ALL DAY.
1. BENETINT ROSE-TINTED LIP AND CHEEK STAIN, BENEFIT £24.50
SARAH The stain lasts really well with this one and it gives a lovely flush of naturallooking colour. CLAIRE It gave my cheeks a great glow, but it wore off my lips very easily.
2. POT ROUGE FOR LIPS AND CHEEKS IN PALE PINK, BOBBI BROWN £20
SARAH The pigment is a bit strong for me, although I think it would be great for brides who want a fuller make-up look.
CLAIRE It’s very handy that it comes with a mirror, but the product itself was quite tricky to blend.
3. LIP AND CHEEK GEL STAIN IN BABY BOO, VINCENT LONGO £18.50
SARAH I needed a few coats to get a good colour with this one, but I do like the supersoft applicator brush.
CLAIRE There’s no streaking or caking with this stain which is fab – I just wish the tube was a bit bigger.
4. THE MULTIPLE IN MAUI, NARS £29
SARAH If you want a gorgeous pink glow on your cheeks and a sheer finish on the lips – this one is perfect! CLAIRE This subtle colour was my favourite and it was very easy to apply.
5. MULTI STICK IN AT LAST, ILIA £30
SARAH I’d give this full marks for its blending abilities, it’s just a shame that the shade is quite subtle. CLAIRE The buttery soft formula glided on so nicely, but the colour is a little bit sheer for my liking.
