This fall/winter I decided to go in for cream blushes because I thought they’d be more forgiving on my dry skin. Not surprising that I jumped at the sight of this beautiful Lip & Cheek Palette when I saw it at Sephora. Who doesn’t like products that multitask….this palette has got a lovely highlighter called Kitten that can be used on the cheeks and brow bone. It can even make your lipsticks shimmery when you mix a tiny bit with lip colors. I loved the packaging too – it’s an artist inspired tin that holds these 5 gorgeous colors! Here’s more about the colors.
Kitten is a champagne colored highlight. It is very pigmented and looks great on the cheek bones as well as on the brow bone. I’ve also tried tapping a tiny bit on the center of my lower lip over some lipsticks and it looks great!
Peony is a brownish rose shade. Love it ! On the cheeks it looks like a bronzer with a rosy tint. It warms up the skin tone. Perfect for days when you don’t want the typical pinks or corals on your cheeks. It looks great on the lips too – ideal for a nude lip kind of a look.
Gerbera is a peachy pink shade. It would look great on pale skin. On my NC42 skin, it just looks like a gentle wash of peachy pink color. Its too pale for my lips though.
Rose is a deep red with a brownish tint. I initially thought it would not look good on the cheeks but when I gathered the courage to try it on – it looked great. It gives that just-ran-around-the-block kind of flush on the cheeks. It’s a great color for the lips too.
Petunia is a bright pinky coral. It is similar to Peony but brighter with a distinct coral tint. I love it on my cheeks but again, its too pale for my lips.
Overall, I love the palette. All the colors are very pigmented and creamy. They are easy to work with. You can either use a brush or tap on some color with your fingers. On the cheeks they give a nice translucent finish and look very natural. They look great on the lips too but last longer on the cheeks. I find this palette very useful for traveling. I like having this neat palette with all the colors lined up so that I can create different looks. I love mixing and matching the colors on the cheeks and the lips. No wonder this palette is a best-seller!
