MeMeMe Poppy Tint for Cheeks and Lips Review and Swatches

Good Afternoon lovies!

Little busy here today! Just a note I have ALOT of comments to get through and I’ll be replying soon but I am behind, just wanted you to know where I am today.

Today I’m hitting pink hard so I dragged out my bottle of MeMeMe Poppy Tint for Cheeks and Lips.

Oooo MeMeMe I’m telling on you! UK Brand MeMeMe continues to come out with awesome dupes of Benefit products, it’s latest, the new MeMeMe Poppy Tint for Cheeks and Lips which mimics Benefit’s popular Posietint.

MeMeMe is a brand available exclusively within the UK and can be found at Superdrug. If you check out E-bay UK occasionally an auction or two pops up with products from the brand. I get my fix from a good friend in England who did a little shopping for me.

This isn’t the first Benefit cop off from MeMeMe as they have done up a dupe of Benefit Benetint as well prior.

MeMeMe MeMeMe Poppy Tint is the same general idea as Benefit Posietint. Same formula, same shade. Not alot of different going on here. It’s basically a cheek and lip stain that’s a light, pretty pink shade. It’s a watery gel-like formula that blends easily onto the skin and leaves behind a very subtle kiss of pink. The formula does need to be built up in some cases as it is a tad on the sheer side but once you get the desired amount on correctly it gives a nice hint of cool pink to cheeks and lips.

At £4.99 it’s a rather nice little dupe to get your hands on even if you find you have to pay airmail postal to get it as Benefit’s version is three times more in price.

Overall, it performs pretty much the same exact way Posietint does. Shameless of MeMeMe to create such a good copy, right down to the packaging practically, but count me grateful for a cheaper alternative!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    • the Muse

      dd they are about the same believe it or not 😀 but I guess in a way the poppy tint is a little deeper 🙂

  • Lisa Kate

    I want this!! I will definitely be calling on my UK girlies XD I’ve been wanting to try Posietint forever, but can’t justify the price!

    • the Muse

  • robyn

  • Pinch

    This looks interesting! I looked for it when I was in London, but didn’t find a Superdrug 🙁

      Morning Paloma, Happy Monday!

      Sadly I don’t do nails or hair…most concentrate on skincare and color cosmetics 🙂

    Hi Muse
    Thanks for the reviews on the me me me brand, i would never have thought about going into superdrug and trying them out (im too much of a make up snob and love high end brands). However your right the stains are identical to benetint and poppytint. I want to try the highlighters next but i didn’t like highbeam, but with these cheap prices its worth a look.

    • the Muse

      ooo gemma my pleasure go check it out hun good stuff 😀 I am too but I must say the dupes Mememe does are pretty nice 😀 Highbeam isn’t a fav of mine either but I did try the Mememe one and it’s about the same as benefit and heaps less!

  • Aretha

    so glad you like this too! i have this and posietint and i think its so worth the 4.99 pounds 🙂 i was so happy that i managed to get it when i was studying in the UK. superdrug is the best place for good quality drugstore makeup! :p

  • aysha

    another thing we both have lol i lovee this its not much different to posietint atall i cant believe the price difference x

  • Kamagrian

    I realise that I’m commenting on a post from wayyyyyy back, but I’m reading lots of your blog now I’ve found it! 😀

    I love Mememe Pussy Cat (Benetint dupe) and it lasts forever! There are a few bits and pieces from Superdrug that are well worth getting hold of, and this is one of them – I even used to buy it when I had much more money and was all high-end luxury, because it was such an excellent product.

    Don’t even know if you’ll see this, but there’s a brand out here that I’ve been enjoying called “Good Things” – small range of cleansers, moisturisers and so on with no parabens, petrochemicals or SLS. Gorgeous smells and worth a look IMHO.
