I’ve been lusting after an orange blush and lippie since the Revlon Lip Butters came out, and was simultaneously ecstatic and hesitant when rms beauty came out with an orange lip2cheek as part of their Wearable Brights collection. Ecstatic because, ORANGE! In the green beauty world! What a fun color to combat the thinking that green beauty can’t be vibrant! But hesitant because I wasn’t too sure if my skin could take the coconut oil (which is essentially the core of the rms line).
I fall in love.
It’s bright, but it’s totally wearable on both cheeks and lips.
On my cheeks, it takes on a bit of redness, giving me a warm flush that isn’t clown-like (unless I pile on the color–two rubs in the pot plus light patting motions are usually enough). On my lips, it turns into an orange pastel over my natural rosiness. The formula is gold–I tend to stay away from it if I’m wearing powder foundation or am breaking out, but when I layer it over ‘un’ cover-up, there is no funky cakiness on my cheeks nor any crackly business on my lips (given that I have taken proper care of my lips).
tl;dr A super wearable orange blush and lippie that gives me a warm, non-clown-like flush.
And a bonus: here is Curious in real life. Enjoy~
Disclaimer: I purchased this product myself from The Detox Market. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I attempted to preserve the true coloring through the photos–I fiddled with lighting and contrast on the first photo since it was previously too dark and increased sharpness in the second photo. The first photo shows the coloring just slightly more intense than it is in real life.
