So I’m thinking this cheek tints may not be that oil-based as I’ve read that their Stay Matte product line are all water base and oil-free. Rimmel London Stay Blushed Liquid Cheek Tint is available in 5 colors: Pop of Pink, Touch of Berry, Peach Flush, Sunkissed Cherry and Apricot Glow. I was able to get all four except for Apricot Glow which is out of stock the time I ordered it.

Texture and Consistency:
I must say this isn’t your typical tint such as Benetint. It’s more likely a texture between cream and mousse. It’s easy to apply and even easy to blend. Common problem with cream-type and liquid-type blush is the blending and setting time as some leave marks as it dries up due to inability to blend it well. Well, for Rimmel London Stay Blushed Tint, it’s not a problem at all… you’ve got to blend it well before it sets leaving no mark at all. And it also dries up as matte and not sticky at all.
Pigmentation is good! A little goes along the way. I was able to use a pea size for one cheek. You can apply a little bit for a more natural look or apply more product for bolder look.
I’ve had this blush from morning to evening without retouching. It stays pretty much longer though you expect to see it became lighter through time due to sweat, moisture, etc.
This product smells wonderful! It’s clean and fresh with a bit of citrus, a bit of floral but not too much. Smells much like any typical body lotion.
Price and size:
U.S. SRP for this is $2.99. It’s selling price in the Philippines ranges from 250-350php. Size is 14mL and as small as those trial packs of eye primer, moisturizer and others given in beauty stores. But then, you’ll only need a pea-size for each use and for me price is worth the size.
THE FINAL VERDICT
I love it so much I have hoarded all 4 shades. It’s a blush-to-go and can be your everyday blush buddy. It looks natural and I love the fact that it’s not oily, sticky or heavy. It’s very light and easy to apply and blend.
