Who needs to “strobe” when you can have dewy, flushed cheeks on-the-go? Pür Minerals Chateau Cheek Stain ($26.00 // ULTA Beauty) is the latest way to glow naturally and is easy enough to apply in the car (while as a passenger, of course) as it is at your vanity. Four shades are currently available and I have two to share with you today in Peach Bellini (apricot) and Prosecco (pink rose).
These cheek stains are packaged in thick plastic tubes where the exterior color coordinates up with the interior product color. One side is the cheek stain and on the other side is a small blending brush making this product wonderfully travel and purse friendly.
The best way to use this product is by applying the Cheek Stain color side directly to the apples of the cheeks. Next use the brush side to blend outward. The color is buildable so you can add more product as needed. Formula wise the stain applied like a gel and feels cooling. The blending brush is the best way to evenly distribute the color because it does so quickly and evenly. These particular cheek stains wear all day on me until I wash it off in the evening.
The only con I have with these is on the side of the brush. The brush itself is fine and does the job – the problem lies in the cap. It fits the brush, which isn’t a good thing. Why? It’s crushing the bristles on the brush side. Every time you cap the brush, no matter how you maneuver it, you’re smashing bristles. Eventually it’ll destroy the brush, but by that time you might be ready for a re-purchase anyway. In the photo at the middle of this post you can see how the bristles are starting to splay away from the rest of the bunch.
What shades do you think you’ll be needing in the Pür Minerals Chateau Cheek Stains line?
