▢ GENERAL EXPECTATIONS OF STICK BLUSH BY WINNIE
╸ Long Lasting Color: Does not last long.
╸ Easy Application: Easy to apply but not smooth.
╸ Blendable: Requires the use of a blush, but even with a brush, it takes awhile to blend.
▢ THE CLAIMS
╸ On the Go- Designed to allow individuals to bring around.
═ Soft Texture- Light color, but does not easily glide on.
╸ Easy to Blend- Formula is not very easy to blend.
═ The texture will not clog pores- Feels lightweight, Im unsure if it clogs pores.
✔ Weightless feel- Light
═ Effortless blush look- Depends on the Skin color.
═ Colors: There are two colors that are offered as it is part of a collection. There is only a slight color difference and would be hard to notice if you’re not an art buff in my opinion. I like the colon and I do think that they look good.
** I cannot claim if it is good for everyone, and saying that it is for everyone is hard because everyone has their own preference.
╸How does it compare to what's in the market? There are a lot of drug store store Cheek Sticks. There are smoother formulas.
╸Can it compete with what is out there based on the price? There are drugstore options that offer a smoother application and a range of colors.
✔ Packaging Design: Simple and solid colors with a nice finish.
✔ Typography: Clear and readable.
✔ Color: Colors match the aesthetic of the brand. Good choice of colors.
╸ Is it sustainable? No, extra plastic packaging it comes with is wasteful. Brand should be responsible and come up with a solution to how the packaging will be disposed.
═ Alarming Ingredients:
Silica: It helps your makeup adhere and spread easily that is considered safe for use in cosmetics, and generally non-carcinogenic, while crystalline Silica is linked to a variety of health hazards, including cancer, allergies, and organ system toxicity.
Tocopheryl Acetate which is marketed as “Vitamin E provides deep nourishment to eliminate chapped lips, while Argan Oil helps keep it soft and smooth.” Based from my research and what I understand, Vitamin E can also be known as Tocopheryl Acetate which is a laboratory form of Vitamin E which can be found in skin care products and supplements. Manufacturers take natural vitamin E and add acetic acid to it to make it last longer and to reduce its cost. The Cosmetics Database qualifies it as a “moderate risk” it can be toxic. Just because they tell you there are vitamins, its a marketing ploy and we want to be careful of how much they actually include and whether is natural or lab manufactured.
Dyes: When a colour is named “FD&C” it means that it has been approved by the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for use in food, medicines and cosmetics. When it’s labelled “D&C” then it has not been approved for food. I only see D&C color
