AMW Reviews: Ellana Lip & Cheek Gel (Ruby)

Happy Friday!
I'm busy with 2 clients this morning and I'm excited to use the Ellana Lip & Cheek Gel in Ruby as they are both attending a wedding and both tend to perspire a lot!  I have full faith in Ellana Lip & Cheek Gel in Ruby as I used this for more than a month now and so far, I'm very impressed!


Ellana says ---
One of our bestsellers, the Lip & Cheek Gel gives a gorgeous, rosy glow that lasts the whole day. It delivers a sheer and beautiful no-makeup look while moisturizing your skin. It doesn’t dry quickly, giving you enough time to blend it evenly on your cheeks.

Net Weight: 18ml
Ingredients: Dimethicone (and) Ceteth-10 (and) Laureth-4 Red 40 (CI 16035) Tocopherol acetate Aloe Barbadensis Deionized Water Propylene Glycol (and) DMDM Hydantoin Carbomer



AMW says ---
Pros
  • Simple pump packaging that works in dispensing just the right amount of product.
  • A little goes a long way.
  • Highly pigmented! 
  • Works well as blush and lip stain.
  • Long-lasting.
  • Works for all skin types.
  • Gel formulation, easy to blend.
  • Price.  A little goes a long way so this 18ml will last you months!
  • Non-drying when applied on lips.
    Cons
    • A bit tricky to apply.
    • Leaves stain on your fingers during application. (as most lip & cheek stains do)
    Overall
    A gel lip and cheek product that keeps your blush and lip color stays longer than regular blush powder and lipstick!  Ruby is a flattering red shade that reminds me so much of Benetint.

    Tips
    from Ellana
    • Pump a small amount on the back of your hand. 
    • Pick up the product with your fingers
    • Then apply it on the apples of your cheeks. 
    from AMW
    • To prevent uneven blush, blend gel at the back of your hand first and gently blot at the apples of your cheeks.
    • Less is more, it is better to layer your blush rather than applying heavily in one go!
    • If you prefer a more natural "blush color" mix Ellana Lip & Cheek Gel with your favorite BB cream or liquid foundation.
    • Applied too much?  Don't worry, apply powder on top of your blush to lighten the color.
    • Used as lip gel, it is best to apply sparingly.
    • Best tool to use is your fingers in application!  But if you want to free you fingers from stain, use a stippling brush.
    Will I repurchase?
    Yes!

    To whom do I recommend this to?
    Everyone who prefers to keep their blush and lip color stays longer.
    The shade Ruby would work well on fair to dark skin tone.

    How do you find Ruby shade on me?
    Will you give this a "go" after reading my review?

    Are you comfortable enough to use lip & cheek gel?
