Way back in my first ever makeup post I reviewed the Bodyshop Lip and Cheek Stain on my blog. At that time I had only purchased and used the 'Bronze Glimmer' tint, which is a beautiful sparkly golden-orange shade with an almost grainy consistency (the glitter). Since then I have found its EVEN better counterpart: 'Rose Pink'. This is such a beautiful delicate pink colour, which can be built up in layers to create your PERFECT just-bitten lip look. Note however: Too many layers of this will, like any other over-used and abused product, damage your lips! Not terribly, but your lips will dry out and become irritated. Not that this has happened to me..
However, when used appropriately without the mental commitment of seeing just how deep a colour you can achieve, this product is a makeup-bag must have. It complements most looks, and flatters most skintones. You may find it more watery than you expect it to be - as it is a stain, if you make sure to buff in each layer with a lip brush or your finger, your lips will quickly pick up the colour (as will your fingertip). RRP £10
As you can see in my last photo, you can really build a wonderful intensity! I love this product to pieces, and really recommend it. This post has however made me majorly cringe at its original counterpart, and so I may give that post a few editing tweaks here and there..!

Also, if you're a long-time reader of my blog you'll know that I usually forward all my replies via email to anyone who comments on my blog - but I've sadly had to stop! My hotmail now refuses to send any of these messages telling me I'm spam. Sorry guys!
