No doubt you’ve figured out by now how much I love multi-tasking products. Right now, I’m loving my W3LL PEOPLE Color Stick as both a lip tint and a blush. You see, these hard working products offer more than one benefit and take up half the space in your make-up kit.
W3LL PEOPLE Universalist Multi-Use Color Stick:
This all-natural, magic colour stick for eyes, cheeks and lips will take your entire look from drab to fab in seconds. The creamy formula has a satiny smooth, weightless texture – free from all harsh, artificial chemicals and petroleum. So, there is no heavy, greasy film and no creasing.
Universalist Multi-Use Colour Stick creates ultra-long wear and natural radiance with its creamy supernatural pigments that move and breathe with skin. It controls shine with oil absorbing silica and hydrates with rich, organic omega oils. Skin is left rejuvenated and nourished from powerful organic extracts of aloe, green tea and chamomile.
Available in 5 gorgeous shades: 05 Creamy Crimson; 06 Satin Blood Orange; 07 Creamy Peony; 08 Creamy Dusty Rose; 09 Nude Flush.
W3LL PEOPLE products are beautifully hand crafted and brimming with 100% natural and organic ingredients. What their makeup does contain is an advanced botanical complex of organic aloe, organic chamomile and organic green tea. This synergistic complex provides nourishing and protecting benefits to the skin.
I have been using the shade Dusty Rose for some time now and it is just perfect. It’s not entirely red/pink, it has brownish undertones which really warm up the complexion, to create a very natural looking cheek colour. You may remember me mentioning it earlier, in my everyday makeup essentials post.
As a cheek tint:
It’s nice and creamy, so it blends easily. There’s nothing worse than applying a cream blush that wont budge!
Creams are really easy to use. I’ve long been a powder blush girl but recently making the move to creams as they look less powdery and more youthful. More like a natural flush really. Tip: start the application directly below your pupil and blend out. Starting close to the centre of your face and then blending out can end up pretty messy – you want to avoid any redness bleeding in towards your nose. I figured this tip out after numerous times ending up with a red face!
The formula’s non-sticky and non-greasy. The matte finish makes it perfect for all day wear too.
What I love about this stick is that the colour’s quite build-able. Apply more for a richer colour, or less for a subtle glow.
As a lip colour:
It works just as well as a lip tint too. Lasting for a good couple of hours. I do apply all lip products pretty sparingly though so I’m probably not getting maximum wear!
Tip: You can use these sticks near your eyes too, i.e. as an eyeshadow. However as I bought a red shade I wasn’t game to put that on my eyes! Lady Gaga (circa Superbowl 2016) may be the only woman in the world who can pull that off.
As for longevity, the colour seems to last longer than other cream blushes/tints I’ve tried.
Would definitely buy again.
