EB Advance Lip and Cheek Stain Review

July 22, 2015

Do you secretly pinch your cheeks to make them appear naturally rosy? Yes? Well, let me tell you a secret-- There are  actually products that can do that for you. 

In one episode of KrisTV, a well-known celebrity shared the secret weapon she uses to achieve natural-looking rosy cheeks (view the clip here). Lo and behold, it's the Ever Bilena Advance Lip & Cheek Stain. This product's been getting lotsa love since then, so I just had to try it myself! 

It comes in a 20ml squeeze tube, which makes it fairly easy to dispense. The stain itself has a rosy hue and a gel-like texture.

Before applying the cheek tint | On my face: Shiseido BB Cream, YSL Touche Eclat

I applied several dots of the stain to the apples of my cheeks, then quickly blended it in using my fingers. A little goes a long way for this particular product, so you don't have to apply that much. 

I applied the product to my lips just as how I would normal apply jelly lip gloss. I squirted it directly then blotted it by pursing my lips. It has a bitter taste to it, so I don't really recommend giving it a lick. I applied my Burt's Bees Beeswax lip balm over it to add a bit of shine.

I'm impressed with the color payoff & texture of the product. Initially, I thought it would flake out my skin since it contains glycerin. But it was really easy to use, and didn't cause my skin to breakout. I also figured that it's actually waterproof. I had to use a makeup remover to remove the residue left on my fingers.

The rosy hue on my cheeks lasted the whole day (around 7-8 hours), while the lip stain required several reapplications. Considering how easy it is to apply, how long lasting it is, and how it makes my skin look naturally rosy and vibrant, I can say that I'll definitely be using this product from time to time.

Overall : ★★★★★ 

The best part? It costs only Php135.00! That's like cheaper than a tall frappe from Starbucks. You can purchase it at any Ever Bilena counter found in department stores and drugstore outlets.
