The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain Review

I'm a big fan of lipsticks. I love how it can transform a look from dull to all-done in just a few swipes. I especially like it when I'm running late for work. I just need to swipe a bright shade of lipstick and put on big glasses then I'm all set.

But since it's Summer, I know sticky lips aren't really attractive. So the best option, lip stain! 

I saw this when Saab Magalona posted a recent The Body Shop haul on her blog. So I thought of giving it a try. My bff and I went to the mall last Wednesday. We saw The Body Shop was on sale so we both decided to get this since 40% off the price tag was such an amazing deal!

Regular : Php 795
(Sale price : 40% off Php 477) 

Lip tints are good because they also work as cheek stain. Natural looking flush of color in a snap!

  • Color is natural when applied on lips
  • No weird smell
  • No weird taste
  • Doesn't stain teeth  

  • Color is very subtle, almost pale
  • Too pricey for a small bottle
  • Color doesn't last

Here are photos of my lips before and after application of tint :  

Will I repurchase :

No. I was quite disappointed with this lip and cheek tint. I noticed that the color is a little opaque. If you want noticeable lips and cheeks, you may need to apply twice or thrice. It also doesn't last too long, especially after drinking and eating. So for it's price, I'd say this is not a very good product. I have tried other lip tints lower than P200 and the quality is similar if not better. I still have to try Benefit's Benetint. I'd say, save your bucks and buy something else. :)

Thanks for reading!
