Ah Revlon your new Baby Stick Blush for Lips & Cheeks is such a great idea. It’s Spring almost Summer just the right time for a gel blush stick. Of COURSE, beauty junkies are going to get excited about a product like this.
Hooray for awesome marketing guys! Plus let’s not forget something called Baby Sticks makes us do a head whip around with our mouths in an O shape…come on admit it you know we’re all like, “OMG I need me some Baby Sticks!”
Seriously, you’re reading the wrong website if you aren’t thinking that!
Take a look!
Revlon Baby Stick for Lips & Cheek is a teeny tiny little swivel up gel blush stick. Think Bobbi Brown Sheer Color Cheek Tint but in a small size with a crummier formula and you’ll basically have Baby Sticks.
At moment these are available in three shade selections with the new Revlon Gucci Westman Collection for a whooping $10.79 each. At this size and with this kind of formula that’s highway robbery. I got mine at CVS however, I’m positive Harmons will have them far cheaper when and if they do arrive there.
I want to say that the formula seems slightly inconsistent on the two shades I tried. The first shade, Sunset, has very little pigment and an odd waxy formula. It’s a gel blush yes but it feels very waxy on my cheeks and leaves behind a VERY dewy finish. The other shade I purchased, Pink Passion, was considerably better in terms of pigmentation. This gave my cheeks a just pinched shade of pink however, I ran into issues with it being a little too dewy a finish however, powder helps to tame this slightly.
I purchased an extra Pink Passion to apply on my lips and the texture is quite nice on lips. Lightweight but providing very little moisture or color unfortunately but still comfortably weightless none the less.
Overall, I think Revlon seems to have pushed these out a little quickly. I’m hoping we haven’t seen the last of them and at some point they release them as part of the general catalog the way they did with the Photoready Blushes. If that’s the case perhaps the formula will improve. As of now they really have rather poor color pay off with a strange waxy formula that has too much of a dewy finish on my skin for me to be comfortable with.
Cute idea but in theory the formula just stinks.
Anyone try them?
Would love to hear your thoughts!
