Everyone knows this classic Mommy Beauty Tip: to bring instant color to your cheeks, just pinch them! It always works. But while mothers know best, we prefer the less painful route. Nowadays, a simple cheek tint will do the trick. The best ones are soft, sheer, blendable, and natural, almost like the color’s emanating from within.
This brings us to today’s hot topic: the Cheer Water Cheek Tints by B. by Banila. If that sounds familiar, it’s because this collection comes from Banila Co., the maker of your favorite cleansing balms and gel primers. The K-beauty purveyor has just revamped its lineup, filing all skincare under the flagship Banila Co. brand and all makeup under the young, hip B. by banila. The cheek tints just happen to be the latter’s hero line!
With their light, gel-like texture, these tints bring you a believable flush. We bet our bottom centavo that if you’re new to cheek tints, you’ll LOVE this stuff. They’re easy blend, set powdery-smooth, and create the complete opposite of clown cheeks. Shout-out to the nail polish-esque packaging—totally chic, totally foolproof.
