My amazing friend Kelly, who is a makeup artist as well, told me to get these awhile back. I never ended up getting them because I was too afraid of a cheek stain. In my mind, I envisioned putting it on my cheek and it coming out as if I just used a tube of lipstick (which, if you can’t envision, just know, in my mind, it wasn’t pretty).
Well, low and behold, these are just as amazing as she said they were and I will tell you why. First off, they smell good….lol that might not matter to you, but I have a sensitive nose and if a makeup has a weird smell, I wouldn’t be able to keep it on my face all day. Second, the color has great pigment but the finish is sheer which makes this great for a couple reasons: you want a cheek color to stay on all day and not move around or come off when you itch your cheek, and on most days, you don’t want an intense cheek. These look natural and blend very easily.
The best thing about a cheek stain is you can use the stain first and a blush second. Start by putting the stain on the apples of your cheeks, blending up toward your temples. You can use your fingers, a brush, or a beauty blender. Then take a little bit of your blush over top of the stain and BAM, your blush looks amazing and will last all day 🙂
