Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain.

I got the Body Shop lip and cheek stain after hearing great things about it, and I have to say, I am in love. I got it in 'Rose Pink'. I haven't used it as a cheek stain yet (not sure how if I'm honest?) but as a lip stain it's perfect. After just one sweep on my lips it leaves a really lovely healthy, natural colour, and then if you do a few layers it gives you a brighter, more summery pink, which I love. It has a doe-foot applicator which makes it really easy to apply, and goes on matte, but because my lips are quite dry I put my figs and rouge coconut lip balm on top, and it looks gorgeous with the lip stain, really natural and pretty. When I wore this with lip balm on top, it lasted a good few hours.

 Please excuse my horrid and plain nails...they keep chipping so I'm having to stop using nail polish for a while :(

The lip stain after just one sweep/layer

My only annoyance with this product is that if you're lips are dry the colour 'attaches' to the dry parts of the lips and the colour looks darker on the dryer skin. So I suggest moisturising your lips well a little before applying the stain, just so it doesn't make it obvious that your lips are dry.

If you want to buy it you can get it in-store at Body Shop or online for £10.

Have any of you tried lip and cheek stains? 
Can any of you tell me how to use it on my cheeks?!



  1. I think to use it as a cheek stain yo apply a couple of little dots of it on your cheeks and then blend it with your fingers/a brush like you would with benetint!xxx

  2. I have this but never use it, this has inspired me to! xo
