The Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain "01 Rose Pink" - Review & Swatches

heyy everyone:) hope you are doing well and enjoyng the holidays :) today i am going to add the Body Shop Lip & Cheek stain to my review list.continue reading to find out more!

Te Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain "01 Rose Pink"

Product Description


This dual-purpose stain gives lips and cheeks a healthy-looking glow with one wash of color, or builds up for a richer, deeper coverage. A great base for lip products. Its moisturizing formulation helps to condition the skin. Dermatologically tested.

My thought

the stain comes in a transparent plastic tube with a doe foot applicator the tube contains 8ml of the product.in the tube the color appears bright red but on application its a pretty rosy pink color and the consistency is gel like.

for the application, dab the lips and cheeks with the applicator then blend with the fingertips but this way the fingers get stained with the same color.on the application is feels sticky until it gets dry and the application is very uneven on my lips, my upper lip always get less stained even if i do two coats on it.though, The Body Shop claims it being moisturising, its not at all moisturising and make my lips appear cracked and dry even if i exfoliate before applying this.the staying power is not what i imagined, it stays for 4 hours and fades unevenly which is very irritating for me.



stain applied

i don't like it as a lip stain but worked well as a cheek stain for me though.it gives a natural rosy pink color to the cheeks.i just apply little amount of it on the cheeks and blend it quickly not giving time to set otherwise it leaves a stain on the spot where i applied it.as far as the staying power is concerned it stays for 3 hours.

i really like The Body Shop's products but this one didn't live upto my expectations.m pretty much disappointed and won't repurchase it


i will rate it 3.5/5

  3. Nice post! Lip stains look fabulous but the 'dry' part is a turn off for people who have dry lips. xx
