Review: Pretty when Pinched Cheek & Lip Tint + Fish Spa Info

I ran out of  products to do a review. So I'll just share with you my old / vintage Cheek & Lip tint from Herbench/ which I have for like 4 or 5 years now. Yah, I know I shouldn't keep any make up that long.


It takes me forever to finish this product! hehe. I know it's kinda gross but it still do its job so why throw it? Unless it started to irritate my skin. I do check my make-ups once in a while, like swatch it to my wrist. We all know expiration dates mostly came off with the packaging.


Whenever I wanted to go out not wearing too much make-up I always ended up using my Missha BB cream, Maybelline gel liner and my prettywhenpinched cheek & lip tint. But I mostly use this only on my cheeks and apply my Nivea lip gloss on my lips.
Product info:
  • Comes in a small glass pail type packaging. (kinda looks like a nail polish)
  • Purple-ish tint
  • PRICE: around P100-200.00 approx $2-4
What I l♥ve:
  • Cheap
  • Doesn't clogged my pores
  • Didn't give me break outs
  • Gives natural blush (not very pigmented)
  • Oil free
  • Build-able and never tends to look overdone.
What I hate:
  • Strong smell (I can't even describe it.)
  • Dries too fast
  • Dries my lips


Tips:
  • I suggest you rub it first between your fingers then apply it on your cheeks.
  • Don't apply it directly from the brush.
  • Do one cheek at a time & blend.
Rating: 2 out of 5 

Will I repurchase?
  • Nope. I still have a lot of this product. :) I only gave it 2 bunnies coz it really dries my lips. I don't usually use it on my lips but for the sake of this review I did it again. Sorry lips. :(
Have you tried this product yet?
What's the best cheek/lip tint  have you ever tried?
Additional facts:

I found this very alarming info from .Berry Rush x3 post and I really want my readers to be aware of it. Have you tried fish pedicure or fish spa? I remember when my cousins and I went to Ocean Park in Manila and saw their Fish spa corner. Eventually two of my cousins went in to test it out. After reading the article I was so thankful that I didn't even tried to go in that spa. Why? These fishes who actually eats your dead skin can carry deceases from open wounds and pass it from person to person. And this info was actually published by BBC News.

  2. I've never tried a cheek tint before - powder blushes just seem so much easier to use :P The color is really pretty though for a natural look :) And thanks for sharing the news about the fish spas - that's really dangerous that something so risky is still being offered to people ><

  12. Never tried lip and cheek tints before but I think I might try them now. And waaa I never knew about the fish spa thingy. I mean, I've heard of it but never wanted to try it 'cause those fishies have already been eating stuff from other people's feet, and I don't think it's just right for the fish to eat stuff out of our feet anyway @.@ Geez that's just gross for both sides.

  13. I've tried this years ago, way back when their tints are still packaged in tubes. Never liked it because I couldn't apply it right and always end up having Betty Boop cheeks. :P

    Re: Fish spa, thanks for the info. The idea of fishes eating my skin freaks me out. :D

    ReplyDelete
  17. Ooh, I've never been to Herbench for years already! LOL I also tried that when it was still in a tube and yeah it dries quickly! But I like how it leaves a natural blush. Anyway, I don't use blush nowadays and I think I should be shopping for one now, lol.

    :O I'm so shocked about that Fish Spa thingy. Aww poor fishes! Haha~ Sorry that is the first thing that came into me. But whoa~ that's really alarming. Good thing I've never tried that. ^^

  37. ohh i think i have that too, although mine was in a tube.
    I lost it though, so annoying >.<
    and it was really useful and practical to me! D:

    thanks for following my blog btw. :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. I personally think the one in the tube is much more useful than this one. I also think that they've changed it to water-y formulation :(

    ReplyDelete
  39. wow thank you for giving me an award! will check it out! yey! :D

    ReplyDelete
  40. Thanks for liking the award dear:) Happy(^~^), and thanks again for sharing the informations about this Fish spas!.

    ReplyDelete
  41. i like the colour sorry to hear it was crap quality though :(

    ReplyDelete
  42. Bench cheek and lip tint is one of the products that I've been using for years. I think its because I get dissatisfied with the powder brush stuff... or I just haven't found a good one. I like this very much but I only use it on my cheeks. :)

    I'm actually curious with the fish spa. hehe. thanks for the info :) I never thought before that it can transfer diseases.

    have a nice Sunday :)

  49. Lol,
    /whispers
    I actually kept some make up for at least 7 years now :P I don't use them but it makes me happy just to see it. AhAaaaa

    So far the best lip tint I've used is Anna Sui's. I have one similiar to yours from Body shop but I hate it cause it dries up my lips too

    Fish spa? Argh, the last time I went for it, I screamed everytime they came near. Paid for 10 minutes but I think my feet was in the water for only a minute. The fishes scares the shit out of me when I see all of them heading to my feet like piranahs >.<;;;

    ReplyDelete
  50. so true. I love keeping them even I dont actually use them. haha

    LMAO :))) pirahas! hahaha. You're crazy girl. I like your attitude. LOL :))
