Both colors go on really sheer so I do need a few swipes to get them to show up on my NC30 skin. The end result is a soft, luminous glow that looks natural and really pretty. Plus unlike most cheek stains, they do not feel wet, sticky or take ages to dry. I also do not have a problem with them clogging my pores or breaking me out.

The only thing it lacks is staying power. When worn alone, the cheek tint tends to fade in a couple of hours. Lucky the stick form makes touching up really easy so I can’t really complain much.

  1. Thanks for the review! I was afraid they were gonna be waxy or sticky because they look like lip glosses. I’ve never tried gel blushes before… but they look good on you!
