Wanna hear about a vampire-inspired beauty product has captured the imagination of girls everywhere? The Majolica Majorca Blood On Cheek Tint (P495) is a blush and lip color in a balm formulation. It feels exactly like lip balm, actually, but it's a very, very thin one and isn't waxy at all.
To be quite honest, I was lukewarm to the idea of a balm tint. I was worried that it would feel sticky, thick, and that it would clog my pores. But none of those things happened. It doesn't feel like anything when worn on the cheeks, and it delivers the perfect color with only a couple of swipes. In fact, this is one of the most natural-looking cheek products I've come across.
Why? Because it looks like my blush is coming from within, as if I just came from a workout. The slightly glossy finish has something to do with that, I think. And since the tint is a sheer red with no undertones, this matches all skintones. Observe:
Wearing Blood On on my cheeks and lips. Pretty, don't you agree?
As for application - it's a breeze! I suggest using two fingers to pick up enough product. The Blood On tint isnt very creamy or emollient, so you need to really dip your (clean) fingers in the pot. Don't even think of using brushes or sponges. Fingers are the way to go. Once you have enough product, swipe it on the apples of your cheeks and blend vigorously. One another thing I like about this: it doesn't erase the makeup I have underneath.
Downside: it's not as long lasting as liquid and cream tints. I give it 2-3 hours before it starts fading in this weather (both as a cheek and lip color). You would really need to re-apply if you plan to be out all day, but then again, it's not a pain to carry around and work with.
Overall, great stuff! The Majolica Majorca Blood On Cheek Tint is a great cheek/lip color for busy girls. It's so convenient since you don't need any brushes, and the pot is compact and light. As a lip balm, it's quite moisturizing, plus it's tasteless and odorless so you can just put it on and forget about it. :) Again, perfect for busy, low-maintenance women who just want a natural flush.
