Anyway first things first. How annoying. Has this ever happened to anyone ? The sponge applicator of the doe-foot breaks off ?
That’s what happened to both my Maybelline 10 hour gloss. Granted I am committing crimes against makeup and using the glosses, 2 years on now. But the glosses are fine. Glossy, staying-put, not rancid, smelly or separated.
When makeup is almost untouched, has loads left I hate to discard it. So I decided I am going to use this as a cheek stain.
I have run the gamut of Benefit cheek stains and Bobbi Brown pot rouge. Mainly as gifts received, I have to add. But really??!! come on people. Use your lipsticks.
And then I decided to use these 10 hr stay glosses as a cheek stain. And boy do they work. Nice flushed look, but like a stain work QUICK. Like a stain dont apply to cheek directly. Rather put on finger and then blend
or like I did – use a torn off wedged sponge.
Work one cheek at a time.
Stained fingers even after washing my fingers.
Good staying power, afterall this IS a 10 hr gloss.
I went for a massage, ie face down on massage bed and the flush hadn’t shifted !
But please do work quick. And work with little bit of colour.
Its not ‘scary quick’ like Benefit’s cha cha tint. Also its gel-like consistency is nice to smear with.
