I came across this little complexion flatterer in my September Glossybox and will be forever grateful. You know that to get a place in my Friday’s Fabulous Beauty Flash post, a product has to be pretty darn special, so it goes without saying that my days aren’t the same if my Mememe Cherub’s Blush Cheek and Lip Tint goes
in one of my daughters’ makeup bags astray.
I was immediately drawn to the ethereal name and so was really pleased when the results lived up to it. The tint has a watery consistency which I thought would be a bit drying, but although it sinks in quickly, it isn’t drying at all. Using the slim brush, I sweep a couple of lines across the apple of my cheeks before blending up to my hair line and it leaves my complexion looking as if I’ve had a good, long walk in the fresh London air (cough cough). Being a balm and gloss junkie, I apply the tint to my lips after a clear balm, otherwise it looks quite matte – which is great for some, but as you know, I prefer a little sheen.
The colour looks quite dark and vampy in the bottle, more suitable to a dramatic evening look, but actually, the tint is more like the subtle pinky purple juice of a bitten blueberry – for want of a poetic description! And the price tag? A cheeky little £5.50.
