I haven't done a review in a while, and they usually tend to be mostly skincare related, because I'm not makeup expert. But I wanted to share with you guys my thoughts on the Flower Kiss Me Twice Lip & Cheek Chubby, mine is in the shade Cant Re-Fuchsia. Spoiler alert: I actually love this product!
Flower Beauty Kiss Me Twice Lip & Cheek Chubby, on lips & face; striped top: H&M
This is a matte cream to powder blush/lip chubby that I spotted in January and featured in my January favorites. It is surprisingly pigmented and you need the tiniest amount to get a nice flush across your cheeks. I place a single dot onto the apples of my cheek and blend towards my temple and it blends quite nicely. I have dry skin, so I have trouble working with powder blushes because they don't seem to quite stick to my skin. But this has made me a blush-believer again. This does cling to dry patches though, so be careful about that. I dot it straight from the tube onto my cheeks and blend with my fingers and have no issue with application. It is very pigmented so one dot on each of my cheeks is enough to get a rather strong look.
Applying straight from the tube onto lips is difficult because of how chubby it is. And because this is a cream-to-powder formulation, this isn't ideal for lips. I mean, it works and you can wear it on your lips, but when you rub them together they obviously feel powdery. Like on your cheeks, this clings to any dry patches. If I do want to wear on my lips I use a finger to get some product and sheer it out onto my lips. This way I don't get very much wear time, maybe about an hour or so, but I like it so much as a blusher that I don't mind that it isn't the best at being a lip product.
Besides being only an 'ok' product on the lips, another potential downside to this product is that it is only available via Walmart stores & online, and I know that not everyone shops there.
Bottom line: would I repurchase this?
Definitely! Blushes don't last very long on me and I was so pleasantly surprised when this one lasted me through the whole day. I adore this as as a cheek product and am okay with it as a lip product. I think the color selection would work well with people of all shades as they range from a light peachy shade to a dark plummy brown.
The Flower Kiss Me Twice Lip & Cheek Chubby (0.21oz/6.1g) can be purchased at Walmart.com for $9.98. No7 has a similar product in their Pop & Glow Cream Blush Stick and can be purchased at Boots for £9.95.
