My thoughts: MeMeMe Boho Balm Lip and Cheek Tint (Pink Rouge)

Hello everyone!!

When I saw the Boho Balms from MeMeMe, I was really interested so I recently bought one. There have been some mixed reviews about these. There are lots of positive reviews and negative ones as well.



NAME: BOHO BALM CHEEK AND LIP TINT 
SHADE: PINK ROUGE
AMOUNT: 11g/0.37 FL OZ
PRICE:  P450 sale price: P375.00)
Bought it from: instagram shop: makeupjunkieshop
Multipurpose lip & cheek balm – each tin features two beautiful shades which can be used on both lips & cheeks. The perfect festival accompaniment!

When worn:

LIGHT PINK:


CHEEKS:
- Sheer and does not really show up on my  cheeks
-Applied the product with my fingers using a patting motion across my cheeks

LIPS:
-Hello!! hahaha.... also sheer and does NOT compliment my skin tone at all. :)

My lips here look fuller and the color showed up better. I used a lipliner from Ever Bilena in the shade Rosette. But still, I don't think this color suits me!!ahaha

** Featuring my chapped lips! Here I'm using the Ever Bilena in the shade Rosette.







 Lips:
-Showed up on my lips
-"my lips but better" look

Cheeks:
- did not show up much in camera but quite obvious in person
-needs to be set with powder



When both colors are mixed:


When I mixed the two colors, I find that it complimented my skin color more. I love how natural the colors looked on me. :)

My Thoughts:

Packaging:
-Cute and compact, can fit my kikay kit
-I have to use my fingers though, which is a little unhygienic.

Availability/Affordability:
- It is a little difficult but there are lots of Facebook and online shops that sell Mememe products.
-Affordable since you get three lip colors and three cheek colors.

Formulation:
- A little difficult to blend on my lips
- Both colors are sheer at first but quite buildable.
TIP: It is better to use a lip liner first, before applying the lipstick to make them show up better and last longer.
-Quite sticky and feels like a lipstick.
- It is moisturizing and smells like sweet mint!

What I like:
-Packaging is sturdy
-Smells nice
-moisturizing
- versatile
-affordable


Some issues:
-can be messy
- the light pink color does not suit my skin color

Recommendations:
-Use a lip liner before applying the product
-When used on your cheeks, be sure to apply it before setting powder.
- You can also put the dark/coral pink on top of your bright lipstick to tone it down a bit.
-Use a lip brush for better control of the color and for the cheeks, you can use your fingers in a patting motion or you can apply it using a stippling brush. 


Overall:
I love it!! It is a must in every girl's makeup kit. I would love to buy the  other color as well.
