‘Kiss Me’ Cheek Stain

I have horrible sleeping habits that take a huge toll on my skin and can sometimes make me look like a vampire – not the look I’m going for. So in order not to scare the kiddies, sometimes some blush is needed – or better yet, cheek stain!

Why use cheek stains?

Cheek tints give you a pop of colour that looks healthy and natural. It also has much better lasting power that leaves your cheeks kiss-proof for much longer than the powder alternative.

What to avoid in your blush

Talc: is one of the main ingredients in most blushes, which may be contaminated with carcinogenic asbestos fibres – asbestos! Would be good to avoid that.

Bismuth Oxychloride: can also be sound in some blushes, which is used for shine. This chemical can irritate sensitive skin and cause redness and itching.
