The Body Shop // Lip and Cheek Doll

beauty products/ review

lip and cheek doll


Happy Wednesday. How are you? HOW ARE YOU? I’m happier than usual because I now have 5 full days off work. Time of work is my favourite thing in the world. I seem to be adding more and more hobbies to my THINGSILOVETODO list, so time off work really helps me to get organised and try to get ahead a bit with the old blogging malarky. Daily blogging, two blogs, daily work outs, yoga and a full time job can often leave me feeling a little tired. I’m ecstatic for not having to wake up to the sound of an alarm.

So, onto the point of this post. I was sent this little gem from Body Shop a while ago as part of a campaign to promote their Christmas range. I pretty much loved it instantly, judging the book by it’s cover, so to speak.

lip and cheek dollIt’s a lip and cheek stain in an adorable bottle. The only thing I’m struggling to fathom about it, is the Christmas connection to it! Other than it’s red.

It’s easy to apply, you smear some on your lips or cheeks and you’re good to go.

I found that when using it on my cheeks, I’d draw a line on and blend with my finger, with my lips, I would apply as if it was a lipstick or gloss.

I did need to use a couple of layers on the cheek and think it’s a much better lip product than a cheek product.

Now for the before and after shots:

I loved the colour it made my lips, it was a red, but not too bold. It stayed on for a few hours without smudging, which is always a plus with lip colour.

It was really subtle on my cheeks and I don’t rate it much as a cheek product. I’m going to use this just on my lips from now on!

Have you any tried any lip or cheek tints?Untitled

    OMG I love that bottle I would have just bought it for that, how did I miss this in Body Shop >> ??? mannnnn.
    To be honest I tried the benefit lip and cheek and I just was not keen at all but I’d probably just buy this to sit on my dresser haha. xox

    I’ve tried both cheek and lip tints but never one that does both. I can’t see the difference on your cheeks either.

    Eep, it’s so cute! I find stains very difficult to blend properly but thankfully they always look great on the lips. Love the colour on you. 🙂

    I haven’t used any cheek tint yet but if it comes in bottle like this, I may or may not buy a few one.

    I remember going to a Body Shop event near Christmas time and seeing this and thinking it was the cutest little bottle! It would look so nice on a dresser!

    Last time I tried a lip/cheek stain it dried TOO quickly on my cheeks and I had this weird splodgy rash to deal with! Not exactly the look I was going for!

    I like it on the lips, that’s what I would probably do too. The bottle is adorable, not sure about the Christmas theme either but it looks amazing and that’s what matters. Enjoy your time off work, that sounds perfect.

    Lucky you! Time off of work sounds like a nice time…although I can’t be complaining too too much… I have a week break starting Friday 🙂 Anyway, I think this is the cutest lip application ever! And the shade looks amazing on you.

    I hope that you enjoyed your five days off. It must be nice to have a rest I know you work long hours. How cute is the bottle first of all so sweet and it looks lovely on. Not sure about the applicator I have a thing about foam and it touching my lips sets my teeth on edge Lucy x

    This is the cutest cheek and lip tint I’ve ever seen plus it’s too handy so even if in really small clutch, anyone will be able to bring it for quick touch-ups. 🙂

    with love,
