I recently just tried Sophie Paris’ Magic Pink Cream as my new cheek tint to put some color to my pale face that literally looks like I rose from the dead if I don’t put any cheek and lip tint on.
I got my Sophie Magic Pink Cream from my friend for only P125. I think it’s also available online and on kikay stores.
For only P125, you’ll get this 10mL Sophie Magic Pink Cream. It’s tube is about 3.5″ in length, I believe this tube can last for 2 months — using it once a day, everyday.
How to use it? You simply press a small amount on your finger and spread it evenly on your cheek. The cream provides a subtle pink shade on your cheeks because I think it aims for a natural looking blush so if you want to have this really rosy cheeks, you might need to put two layers of this cream or put an ample amount and let it stay for a few seconds before spreading it out to balance the pink tint across your cheeks.
For me, one layer works.
Despite Sophie’s gorgeous pink tint, I still prefer my Careline Lip/Cheek Tint. I previously tried the following tints:
- Careline Lip/Cheek Tint: Just gives the right pinkness on the cheeks but it doesn’t last that long.
2. Nichido Cheek Tint in Tickled Pink: Concentrated content; lasts longer than Careline. Gives an instant rosy shade on cheeks but the problem here is when you always use this product, the fluid inside the container dries out making the tint even more concentrated and it kinda smells bad in time.
3. Tony Moly Tony Tint Cherry Pink: It’s not very ideal for the cheeks because it stains the skin so easily and it’s not that easy to blend it with the skin because it’s a water based tint.
Sophie is really a good choice for those who wants to have a natural looking rosy cheeks but then I don’t suggest using it if you use compact powders, cushions, bb creams, foundations etc because blending it with other products can cause small comedones. I think this is a good choice for those who actually have clear skin (who doesn’t use other face products) and wants to have some rosy cheeks.
I think the cons here is that you have to train yourself in blending and timing because when I started using this product, I really struggled to make both of my cheeks have the same shade of pinkness. My right cheek usually go pinker than the left but you’ll probably get how it’s done in time. It’s quite hard to blend it well.
Will buy again? No.
Will recommend? Yes.
