So I was going through my sample drawer, (it’s basically a drawer in my make up storage packed with make up and skincare samples that I have received from various companies, Glossyboxes and my Auntie) and I came across this, the MEMEME's Cherub’s Blush.

It is simply a cheek and lip tint, a bit like Benefit’s very popular Bene-Tint, without that price tag.

I must have received this at the end of 2013 in one of my Glossyboxes and I hadn’t tried it before, so I thought I’d give it a try and write up a review about it.

It costs 5.50GBP which isn’t too bad for something that can be doubled up as a lip stain and a blusher for your cheeks.

Glossybox gave me a sample of it and the bottle size is 12ml, and I know this is definitely going to last quite a while. I’ve never used a liquid blusher, I normally stick to powders or cream blushers, because that’s what I know.

For the last month or so, I have been so in love with the Bourjois’ blusher – Ambre D’or and it even ended up in my April favourites (you can see the video here). However, I gave this Cherub’s Blush a try and it seems to work quite well!

It is simply a dark red liquid that you can apply to your face after doing all your face base make up, all you really need is a dab or two on your cheeks, or even a stroke or two and you just blend it in.

I have to say, this tint didn’t seem to blend in so well, it dries incredibly quickly, so if you’re not quick enough, you may just end up with 2 red streaks across your cheeks. I applied it on my face after doing my make up, and you may be able to see in the photo above, that there are 2 little streaks on my left cheek… That was because this was the first time I used the tint itself.

On the other hand, the tint is super long-lasting and it definitely lasts longer on my face than a standard powder blush!

The bottle looks a bit like a nail varnish, or for those of you who use Benefit’s High Beam, it’s pretty much exactly the same. It’s a glass bottle, with a brush inside and you use that brush to apply the tint on your cheeks or lips.

I wouldn’t advise you to put this on your fingers first then apply it to your face, because it most definitely will stain your fingers. I didn’t even want to try it on my lips after this, just because the liquid is a bit too blood red, and I didn’t want to look too much like a vampire, especially as I wear silly circle lenses…

One thing I really DO NOT like about this product is that it apparently has 5 parabens in it, that doesn’t appeal to me at all, but overall, it really does give you that rosy tint to your face.

In complete honesty, if you are planning on trying a cheek tint for the first ever time, go for something that is more popular, Benefit’s Bene-Tint really does it’s job and it seems as though it is less harmful to your skin.

    I'm not a huge fan of liquid lipstains/tints ... I'll just stick to the tints that comes in a stick form :P
    Great review though.
