You know how you have heard of something for a long time yet you have never tried it? I had heard about Jemma Kidd Makeup School Rosy Glow Lip & Cheek Tint for years but because I like to touch things before I buy, it wasn’t until I was at Space NK in New York last month that I finally got my hands on it… and it was long overdue!
This stain’s formula is old school, it’s a fluid rosy stain like Benetint, only there are differences in packaging and color. The color of the stain is nice, it is a soft red that gives lips that “bitten” look but it can also be built up for more intensity. It is not as bright as Benetint, this stain is deeper and looks a little plumy as you layer it on.
And as you can see, it comes with more convenient packaging. This rollerball can make application on the lips a little tricky (like excess product if you get too close to the edge of your lips) but I found it is great for applying the stain onto cheeks. There’s no tell-tale mark from when the stain first came into contact with skin. I just hate it when that happens. This one blends beautifully and gives my cheeks a gorgeous flush of color like I was just out for a run or something… only I’m far too lazy for that.
Have you tried this stain? What are your thoughts? Let us know in the comments.
