How to use a lip and cheek tint in 5 different ways

We love multitasking makeup products. Not only do they save time and money, but they also eliminate the need for carrying around a gazillion products in our makeup pouch. One such versatile makeup product is the Lakmé 9 to 5 Weightless Matte Mousse Lip & Cheek Color. As the name suggests, this product can be used as lipstick and blush. The lightweight, mousse texture of this product makes it super comfortable to wear for long hours, and it comes in 20 gorgeous shades that flatter all Indian skin tones. If you’re looking to get your hands on a lip and cheek tint, this one should be your go-to.

But, there’s more. Scroll down to learn how how to use this lip and cheek tint in five, yes, five different ways.


01. Lipstick

On your eyebrows

Starting with the obvious, it can be used as lipstick. What makes it special from most lipsticks is the creamy and highly pigmented formula that glides effortlessly over the lips and gives it a comfortable matte finish. The applicator ensures precision and wide shade options ensure you have one for every mood and occasion.


02. As liquid blush

On your eyebrows

Cheek tint or liquid blush is the second way to use this product. Add a natural hue to your cheeks by applying a small amount of product and blending it in. It is the perfect product to use when you want to create a monochromatic look or have run out of your favourite blush.


03. For contouring

On your eyebrows

Liquid makeup products are better to work with as they give the most natural results. Since this lip and cheek tint is available in so many different shades, you will definitely find a contouring shade for yourself. Take some on the back of your hand, blend with a makeup sponge and contour your face using only a tiny amount.


04. As an eyeshadow

On your eyebrows

If you can’t find an eyeshadow shade that matches your lipstick, apply two small dots of your lip and cheek tint on each eyelid and blend it out. Again, this trick is perfect to create a monochromatic look. Since lipsticks are long-lasting, your eyeshadow will stay put for a long time.


05. On your eyebrows

On your eyebrows

Okay, now, this is something you did not see coming, did you? Since lipsticks are long-lasting and usually waterproof, you can also use a dark brown shade to fill in your eyebrows! But be very careful and take only a tiny amount of product. Apply it using an eyebrow brush for best results. Don’t forget to brush your brows with a spoolie to disperse the product evenly and make your brows look more natural.
