Cheek Tints

Ever since I started wearing makeup, I've always used the Body Shop Lip & Cheek Stain since 1. liquid blushes last longer if without Foundation, and 2. it was always used up at the time when Body Shop sells it half-price, so naturally I bought the same.

I guess it was time that I finally explored other options: no Sale + a whole other selection of liquid (and cream!) blushes. I checked Benefit's benetint before and it roughly looks like the same color.

But then I passed by Etude House one day and thought I should look there for tints. I found one that looked almost exactly like the Body Shop one, and they had it in another color! It was half the price of Body Shop's half-price, so go!

Etude House Dear Darling Tint in Real Red

It had this really nice smell so I thought maybe this was really just a tint for the lips. I searched online and found out it was just for the lips. Boo. It does stay on the cheeks though so no problems with that. 

Realization: check details first before buying. This was a lucky buy.

Years later, adding in the following tints that I have tried:
