The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain in Pink Hibiscus 001

Hello loves!

Are you a fan of The Body Shop's Lip and Cheek Stain?
I know for a fact that their lip and cheek stains are one of their bestsellers in the Philippines and most of my friends who are also makeup enthusiasts have used this before.

This year, The Body Shop added more shades for us to try and they're also in this cutie-size tube! There are nine shades for us to play with and I currently have one of them...

The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain in Pink Hibiscus 001

The product was sent to me by TBS Philippines along with products from their British Rose skincare range.

Info from the website
A lightweight, long-lasting, cheeky kiss of color for your lips and cheeks. This gluten-free is enriched with moisturizing Community Trade Aloe for protection and comfort that lasts all day.

FOR LIPS – Using the wand provided, apply on bare lips and blend using either the wand or your fingers.

FOR CHEEKS – Apply on the apples of your cheeks and use your fingers, to blend. This product can be applied on bare skin or over your cream/powder make-up base.

We source our Community Trade honey from the UNESCO Sheka Forest Biosphere Reserve in the southern region of Ethiopia, where African bees distil the nectar of rainforest flowers to create a distinctive floral honey. To collect this precious honey, we work with the ‘bee whisperers’ of Beza Mar, a group dedicated to improving the livelihood of Ethiopian beekeeping communities and maintaining their traditional, natural way of working with bees. Our Community Trade honey skin and hair care products aids miniaturization for soft, smooth skin and hair.

I think that what made The Body Shop's Lip and Cheek Stain such a popular and well-loved product is its affordability, long-lasting quality, its multifunctional, and it doesn't dry up your lips.

Before the emergence of so many makeup brands carrying tints, The Body Shop's has been there and I think it will continue to be a trusted product for years to come.

That being said, I'm glad that the brand tries to innovate this well-loved product by introducing more shades!

This shade I have here, Pink Hibiscus, is pretty close to their most popular shade Rose Pink. 

The quality of the new tints is almost the same except the featured ingredient here is Honey while the tint has Marula Oil.

It has a doe-foot applicator. It can carry enough product to cover my lips. The packaging is pretty simple and I like that it's clear so that we have an idea of the shade we're getting.

Here's a swatch

It has a lovely natural-looking tint. It dries pretty quickly so you better blend fast.

Once it sets, it will last a loooong time!

Here's my face with the product both applied on the lips and cheeks. 

I applied quite a lot on the cheeks so that the camera will capture the shade. Haha! For the lips, I had to do 2-3 coats so that it will give me this rosy finish.

It looks very natural if you put on the right amount and it is very lightweight—like you aren't wearing any at all! I like that it acts as both blush and lip color so it's a great travel buddy!

What do you think of this product? Have you tried the other shades? Which one?
