I wasn’t sure what to expect with this product because I’ve never been a big fan of using cream-ish formulas for my cheeks, they always felt too heavy and sticky. I like soft powdery cheeks.
rms beauty’s lip2cheek is quite a softer formula as compared to the texture of the rms Living Luminizer (which by the way was just ELLE approved for worlds best beauty product) , it’s more of a cream concealer texture.
So, you really do not need to use very much at all to achieve a beautiful flush of colour. In the pot it looks a bit bumpy, but these are beads of moisture from the organic ingredients that literally melt in your fingers-great for the lips! I always take a swipe on my finger, then stipple on the back of my hand to get a nice even “amount” on my finger so there is more control over the colour during application especially for the cheeks.
I recommend that you use a lip scrub, to get rid of any dry skin on your lips before using rms lip2cheek otherwise the colour can catch on the dry skin on your lips, and that’s never a good look. Overall I am impressed by the strong pigment, the quality of the formula, and the fact that on application the result was VERY natural, I used the colour smile and it made my cheeks look pinched(not too heavy) and my lips luscious and hydrated-almost like a stain. What’s great about this line is that the colour wears all day and you always look fresh. LOVE IT!
