MeMeMe Boho Balm

We always love some new releases from MeMeMe don't we? First the boxed blushers, then brow gel, the dew pot eye shadows and now the Boho Balm.

It's summer and as expected it's a multi-purpose, toss-it-in-your bag, creamy dreamy product.

They call it the Cheek & Lip Tint. I quite prefer calling it Boho Balm however. So chic! Check out the vintage inspired tin packaging. Brilliant is the word. Except that I have a slight problem opening it. Packaging blooper MeMeMe as I ended up digging my nails into the product. Not pretty.

Pink Rouge is your usual shade including a bubblegum pink and a reddish coral. You can't go wrong with it. Coral Taupe however is made for women of colour I suppose or those who despise the 'baby doll' look.  The shades in Coral Taupe are quite original and one of a kind as I haven't seen similar cream products in drugstores. 

Regarding texture, the closest I can compare them to is MAC's Cream Blushers. Exactly as sticky and pigmented. A bit more heavier on the cheeks if not just the same. It's not a bad thing necessarily as that means more longevity and that it won't slide off the skin. 

The texture of every single shade differs for some reason. Coral Taupe is more sheer as you can see and hardly shows up on my skin tone. Whereas Pink Rouge is heavily pigmented. The reddish coral shade in Pink Rouge is a dream to work it, both on lips and cheeks. Get it just because of that ladies. 

Best way to apply is surely not fingers. Use a stiff synthetic brush or a foundation brush for best results. They are a match made in heaven for lips. A love-hate relationship they share with the cheeks however.

My favourite? I'm still on the fence. Tell me yours!

wow! I didn't think that the taupe would be so nice. I thought it would be super brown

@Eve - I agree! It looked so scarily mud-like in the pot but was a gorgeous taupey-plum when applied :)
