Avon Simply Pretty Lip & Cheek Tint

Hello there!

I'm gonna make a very late review of my Avon Simply Pretty Lip & Cheek Tint. I just want to share to you my experience with using it.

I've bought this way earlier than my first-ever lipstick. I used this more as a Cheek Tint since I was using a DIY lip balm for my lips before. As you can see, I don't do the typical make-up routine for myself at all. I am more of a loose-powder-lip-balm gal. This is my second bottle now, and I think I'll stick to it for a while, without trying any.

I bought this because people frequently tell me I'm very pale and I look sick. ( ̄∩ ̄#
Argh, so I tried something that would give a little life to my oh-so-plain face.

* I have come to learn that long-term use of some of these ingredients aren't beneficial. It made me more conscious of what to buy. I tell you, read labels first and search for these ingredients. I know it's a bit tedious but it's worth it. You'll know more about the stuffs you've been feeding your skin with. This site: is a start to see whether ingredients and chemicals are detrimental to our health.

> Sheer color, not too red, thus gives a natural blush.
> Doesn't dry too fast, making it easier to blend.
> Handy
>Affordable, unlike other tints i.e. Benetint, which I read costs 1k+!
> Didn't cause my skin to break out, itch, or dry out.

> Doesn't dry easily. Funny coz it's also a downside. It's so slow to dry! I need to face an electric fan, or fan it with my hands to let it settle onto my face. I fan for about 2-3 minutes to let it dry.
> IMO, Color doesn't last long. I think it lasts for about 30 minutes to an hour.
> I have to apply lots of streaks before I can achieve the sheer color it claims. (This is for the Cherry Pop shade, as for the Pink Blush, it already gives me a good blush, with just a few streaks)
>I don't always apply it on my lips, why? It is not moisturizing and tastes bitter.

That's it. All of these are my personal experience. It doesn't mean it would surely happen to you, case that you decide to try it.
