This is probably the easiest piece of make up you’ll ever own. I love a little stick of colour for primping cheeks and my general rule is that multi-use products like this only ever do one thing really well. For my own preference this is for cheeks, but I’ve tried it on my lids (that peachy shade!) and it’s actually rather lovely giving an instant eye brightening effect.
In terms of lip use – yes, if you literally pat it at your lips rather than try and do any traditional lipstick swipes – you do get a natural looking colour boost. It’s really the perfect one-stop stick for chucking in your bag and touching up on the go if you need to. Although the colours look quite saturated these are more in the vein of no-make up make up – very subtle, very natural and very fresh although feel free to build! I can see them being very appealing (especially at £5) to anyone looking to simplify their routine and cut down on product usage, but really, they’re so handy, they’re useful additions for anyone.
I should also say that they’re lightly shimmery but nothing extreme. In the swatch, it’s Sparkling Rose (a beige pink), Glistening Peach and Lumious Berry, which is the brightest, colour wise. I used Sparkling Rose on my lips and Glistening Peach on eyes and cheeks. If you spotted my K-Pop beauty post yesterday, you’ll have seen that staying within the same colour spectrum on eyes, cheeks and lips is a ‘thing’ hence the name, ‘monochromatic’. You can find them HERE. Interestingly, they’re only $4, yet £5.
