The Body Shop Lily Cole Lip & Cheek Dome (Now at 70% Off!)

If you're a fan of cream blush, and would like to get a new one right at this moment, I highly suggest you drop by your nearest The Body Shop store, as the limited edition Lily Cole Lip & Cheek Dome is now at 70% off - until January 7, 2013 (tomorrow).

The Body Shop Lily Cole Lip & Cheek Dome in Crazy for Coral (P895.00 -> P268.50)
Cream-to-powder colour for lips and cheeks that’s easy to wear and easy to blend. Wear it just as it is or under lip gloss.


The Lily Cole Lip & Cheek Dome is Lily Cole's personal favorite from the entire limited edition Lily Cole makeup range, and it comes in a cute, compact dome. The Body Shop says that this one has a cream-to-powder formula, but I feel that this is more like just a cream blush. It glides on effortlessly on my skin and gives me a slight wash of color on my cheeks.
 
Swatch: Crazy for Coral

The shade I have is Crazy for Coral, and it has a light peach shade that is very sheer. I think that this will only show up for those with light complexion. When I blended it on my skin, it almost disappeared (see picture above). Those with deeper complexions might want to use Pinch Me Pink (a brighter pink shade).
 
When Worn

I like the subtle glow Crazy for Coral gives my face, but since I have oily skin, this doesn't last a long time on me. It seems to fade after a few hours, and I don't like reapplying cream-based products throughout the day. Despite it being a Lip & Cheek Dome, I don't like using this for my lips since the pale peach shade washes me out. I would recommend this product only to those who have dry to normal skin. As for the shade, do get Pinch Me Pink instead - it's more pigmented and it's something you can really also use for your lips.

Love,
Helen
