Inside the bottle you'll find a doe foot applicator which can be used to apply the lip and cheek stain. The shade is a lovely true red which can be dabbed onto the lips for a long-lasting wash of colour or blended out on the cheeks for a rosy-cheeked look.
The stain dries pretty quickly, so if you're using this on your cheeks you need to be quite fast at blending to avoid crossing the line from 'rosy cheeked' into 'red cheeked'. Let's face it, none of us want to look like we're permanently blushing all day!
I prefer to use this as a lip stain, purely as the red shade is a little bold on my pale cheeks, but for medium and darker skin tones it's a great multi-use product.
It is a limited edition, and as far as I know won't be available past Christmas, but one 8ml bottle should last a good few months even with daily use.
The Lip and Cheek Doll costs £10 and should be filtering into Body Shop stores and online from about now. It will make a great stocking filler if you're thinking about Christmas presents, or something a bit different to add to your makeup collection. I have a feeling mine will sit firmly in the 'display corner' of my dressing table - it's too cute to put away in a drawer!
