The Body Shop Lily Cole Collection Lip and Cheek Tint Dome: Pinch Me Pink did not pinch me enough!

The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Tint Dome: Pinch Me Pink, review, photos, swatches
Recently this space was being flooded by The Body Shop products, especially the Lily ole Collection. I have been trying out the range for quite some time, hence, you are now being showered by the reviews. I had reviewed the Shimmer Brick Eye Cubes and the Gloss before. Here is not the Lip and Cheek Dome's turn.
My first impression was ' Oh my god! it;s so cute! And Pink!!" I love hot pinks in my blush since they add a beautiful flush. Plus no doubt the dome looks good.

It almost looks like a pink lady bug with black dots on it's body.

My experience:

As a blush:
 I swatched it on my hands and loved the subtle effect but little did I realize that the subtlety would be too subtle on my cheeks!

I tried putting it on my cheeks. First I tried to rub my fingers on it and pat in on my cheeks.
Fail!
The pigmentation is so low that what transferred to my cheeks did not show up.
I tired rubbing it on directly and it just dislocated my concealer and a little foundation transferred to the some.
6to 7 swipes



With gentle blending



As a lip tint: I rubbed it on my lips ( which are slightly pigmented). It almost did not show up at all. When I tried layering, it looked whitish. It stayed on my lips for a long time and smelled beautiful. But seriously?

Except for the fact that it is skin friendly, I do not see why I should shell out about 800 bucks for a product that does nothing! There are plenty of Body Shop products which are worth the rave, but this is not one of them.

*Product by the brand. My review is honest.*

  1. Oh my gosh, when I first saw these come out I was desperate to get one but then decided against it because of the price. That is so bad that it is so sheer :(

    1. Everyone I think is saying the same about it. This one is no match to the other products from the same range in terms of quality
