Beauty Treats - Chic Cheek & Lip

Hi Lovelies,
Its been awhile, I've been taking a closer look at my diet and I'm slowly trying to introduce healthier foods and life style changes that would be easy for me what pushed this agenda home for me was trying on a couple of my jeans and realising that what used to glide up easily up my legs to my waist has been proving to be a seriously.So hopefully with the changes I tried to make I will finally see some gradual improvement and changes. If I'm successful with it I'll include my progress in a very future post?!!

This week while at Pennywise in Tunapuna I came across these Beauty Treat Chic Cheek & Lip 2 in 1Color for lips and cheek since the local price was just TT$9.95 it was an easy purchase...
So it comes in a 3.6g/13oz compact which gives the expiry date at the back and it has four colours to choose from:
  • 01-Modish 
  • 02-Swanky
  • 03-Elegant
  • 04-Stylish
Left to Right: Stylish, Elegant, Modish, Swanky

So according to their home page product description:-

"This creamy textured product will give color and lasting power on your lips or cheeks. Unlike your usual cream blush that has a luminous finish, this creamy texture has a matte finish. When applied to the lips, it becomes a matte color that stains the lips.

Cream blush leaves longer lasting power and hold on the skin especially when used with a powder blush on top.
Other than using it for the cheeks, cream blush has also been used for color on the lips and eyelids too.  
Unlike other formulas, this one is made to be creamy when first applied but then dries matte. This allows the color to have longer wear time."

Left: 01-Modish, 02-Swanky,03-Elegant, 04-Stylish

So this is what it looks like in swatches on my arm, it really gives a dry/matte finish

My Thoughts
On my skin, I felt it appeared very nude and gives a very light wash of colour, meaning it is pigmented but not so strongly that it would not blend easily. It did not appear or feel greasy on my skin. On my lips because it dries to give a matte finish it seems to highlight every crack and crevice,although I had applied vitamin E to my lips prior to putting the product on, I also really needed to use a lip liner for the colours that did not quite match my skin tone and could not apply the colour to heavily to my lips without it appearing to pasty. I preferred the colour 02 Swanky, but overall I think all the colours worked better as a blush than a lip colour. If you do choose it  for your lips then the process of exfoliating your lips with a lip scrub is strongly advised, moisturise and then apply, but wearing a similar colour lip gloss would give it  a smoother finish and nice wash of colour to the lips. Or it may be  even used as a lip base for a similar colour lipstick which would allow your lip colour to last well. I wore 02-Swanky around the house for the day and did not observe any staining.

Bye for now and hope everyone has a lovely weekend
