cream blush + lip tint

milk makeup cheek lip tint

I received this in the mail in Berry, and I was so excited to try it out — and I was right to excitedly anticipate its arrival. Milk’s lip-cheek tint is a classic, one of the OGs. You can thank its ultra-hydrating ingredients for the creamy, non-drying formula: a combo of mango butter, avocado oil, and apricot oil. It’s vegan, cruelty-free, and paraben-free, too, so you can feel safe and ethical about what you’re wearing.

Halo Sheer To Stay Cream Cheek + Lip Tint


We love Smashbox over here — just read Marissa’s review of their liquid lipstick! Their primer-infused cream cheek and lip tint is perfect for those who want a flush in a matte finish. The 2-in-1 gives you blendable and buildable capabilities, and it’s infused with a rich Primer Oil Complex — aka a blend of jojoba, sunflower, and apricot oils — for comfy coverage. The formula glides on smoothly, then settles into a powder-like matte finish that helps create a blurred, soft-focus look.

morphe 2 lip cheek tint in honey

Perk Up is the perfect name for a cheek-lip tint. After all, when you’ve just woken up, are sick, or look ungodly after a hangover, what’s the first thing you want? (Aside from moisturizer. Please put that moisturizer on first.) A little color. Morphe’s ingredients list looks kind of intimidating, but all are in there to soften and condition. Mica adds a little shimmer, because why not?

Freck is LGBTQ+-owned, so you know we already love the brand – the inclusivity is the cherry on top. These color choices are all gorg – a subtle peach, soft rust, and deep berry make up the collection, giving you three shades to brighten your face.
