2true Cheek ‘n’ Lip Tint Review

24 Dec

2true cosmetics are avaliable in Superdrug and you can purchase three products for £4.99!  I decide to buy the two cheek and lip tints and the eyebrow pencil (that I’ll review later). The 2true range has two cheek and lip tints; a pink and a red.  I’ve only used these as blush so I can’t state how well they work as lip tints. They come in a small bottle (10ml) and have a nail varnish style brush.

First up the pink (Blush pink)

Some people have compared this to Benefit Posie tint, however I don’t think that this is a good comparison as the 2true blush is much brighter in colour.  It  has a thick consistency and blends easily into the cheeks.  The colour can be built up but I feel that you don’t need a lot of the product in order to achieve

The red (Rose)

This has been compared to Benefits Benetint, which I feel is a good comparison as the colour is very similar.  The red has a more liquid consistency, which I think makes it more difficult to apply.  It’s also quite hard to blend as if you don’t do it quickly enough you end up with little brush marks, not a great look. If you have trouble blending it I have found an easier way to apply, which is mixing it with a little bit of moisturizer.  This does make the colour paler so more tint is needed if you do this.

Blended with moisturizer and blended on it’s own

Overall I would have to say that the pink shade is my favourite.  I do like the red but I can find it a bit of hassle to apply and if you blend with your fingers, it also stains them red.  I do feel that for the price they are great quality and a lot cheaper than those by Benefit. They can be bought for £1.99 each or on three for £4.99 from Superdrug.
