As a makeup lover who is often on the go (and usually late getting there), I have little time each day to apply makeup in order to look put together. For this reason, I now am on the hunt for products that do it fast, and do it well. Enter RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek.
This is an excellent product, not only for avid makeup junkies such as myself, but for those who are too lazy, not used to, or just can’t get the hang of makeup (ahem… Marta). Recently having reviewed Jane Iredale Just Kissed Lip & Cheek Stain in Forever Pink, I thought for a second that it might be difficult to fairly review another multi-purpose makeup product; however Lip2Cheek effectively sets itself apart from Forever Pink (still love this, too, though!). Lip2Cheek is perfect for those who need a subtle pick-me-up, but also a great option for those who seek a bit more of a dramatic look.
I’ve been using Lip2Cheek in Demure, a soft pink rose shade that contains a hint of mauve, which resembles a natural-looking blush – quite fitting for its name. With that said, it’s not a color that I’m used to for my lips (I’m currently going through a fire-engine red phase), but it’s growing on me quite a bit and works very well from day to night. The creamy pink formula comes in a small glass pot, perfect even for the tiniest of makeup bags.
Application is beyond easy: just a few dots on each cheek and blend. Once I’m done blending, I lightly run my fingertips down the bridge of my nose and at my temples. For lips, however, I do feel the need to apply a lip balm prior to Lip2Cheek, which RMS Beauty also recommends. Lip2Cheek comes in five other shades, one of which (Smile) is a bit more moisturizing than the rest, while three are more like lip stains.
Not only is Lip2Cheek a breeze to use, but it is formulated with care. There’s nothing to worry about here. Being conscious about the ingredients in makeup can greatly help avoid clogged pores and nasty breakouts. If you’re taking all the right steps to keep signs of aging at bay, why would you stop at color cosmetics?
