Happy Skin Pinch Me Summer Proof Natural Lip and Cheek Stick [Review + Swatches]

 When I gave birth last year, I truly felt lost. (Blame it to my hormones) I remembered that I even thought of giving away all my makeup yung tipong essentials lang talaga ang ititira ko. Good thing nahimasmasan ako! Nakakaloka diba kung ginawa ko yun! hahaha When I went back to work, my love for makeup and beauty slowly came back.  One of my favorite purchases is this lip and cheek stick from Happy Skin. FYI, I have a current addiction to lip and cheek tints because I really wanted something that I could wear the whole day without retouching dahil wala ng time magretouch pag nanay na. (Chos)

When I first saw these tint sticks, they reminded me so much of the old Tarte Cheek Stains released more than a decade ago. I remembered buying the Tarte Trio way back in college and I did not like them. These cheek tints, on the other hand, are very nice!! Nung pagkaswatch ko palang sa kanila sa Happy Skin Stall in Robinsons Magnolia, I knew I have to buy them. These tints are marketed as glowing and moisturizing lip and cheek tints. Since I have perpetually dry skin, I really wanted to achieve that glass skin effect kahit sa cheeks ko na lang. 
 I bought these tints at BeautyMNL. com for 449 pesos each. These tints only have two shades - Cherry Glow and Berry Fresh.
Left- Cherry Glow, Right- Berry Fresh
Cherry glow is a reddish tint while Berry Fresh is a nice pinkish shade

As you can tell by the above swatches, these tints have a dewy finish. It works well on bare skin and even on top of my powder foundation. The dewy glow subsides after application but it gives my cheeks that natural glowy flush. I really love how it makes me look blooming especially the shade Berry Fresh. It just make my whole aura look radiant. I apply these tints with the use of my fingers by patting the product on my cheeks. I do not swipe these sticks directly on my face (with base makeup) because the powder/foundation mixes with the tint which makes it harder to pick up the color. I make sure that I have a tissue ready while using this product because I have to clean the top most layer after every application to prevent my foundation from mixing with the top layer of the stick. These tints have a great staying power. They can last for hours up to half a day without retouching. I can also use these on my lips to get an instant color but I prefer using them on my cheeks.
On my cheeks- Cherry Glow

 On my cheeks - Berry Fresh

Overall, I love these lip and cheek sticks. Aside from their staying power, these tints can really brighten my face in an instant. Goodbye stress ang effect! hehe 

What lip and cheek stain are you loving? Any recos?
