Tory Burch Cat’s Meow lip and cheek tint is designed to add just a touch of rosy pink color to your cheeks and lips. The universally flattering hue blends nicely, creating a healthy, natural flush with a sheer, dewy finish. It’s subtly scented with notes of cassis, grapefruit and mandarin.
Tory Burch’s new makeup line has just launched at Nordstrom. This review is for Tory Burch’s Lip & Cheek Tint in the shade Cat’s Meow, which is a pinky-peach.
This lip and cheek tint comes in a plastic pot with a screw-on, reflective gold lid that has Tory Burch’s logo on it. The pot packaging is flattering in its design, but not the most sanitary.
The Lip & Cheek stain has a balm formula that reminds me very much of MAC’s Casual Colors and MAC’s Tinted Lip Conditioner. The balm is initially stiff, but melts under the warmth of your finger and is soft enough to transfer onto a brush.
Cat’s Meow is a soft pinky-peach shade without shimmer and leaves a semi-dewy finish on your lips and cheeks. The color is soft and translucent, but noticeable, giving your skin a natural flush of color. I love the way this looks both on my lips and cheeks.
For my lips, the tint brings a bit of moisture and leaves a protective layer on them. The downside is that the balm doesn’t have any long-wearing quality to it, so it fades quickly. On the cheeks, though, I don’t have a problem with the color fading for at least the first 5 hours of wear.
My only criticism is the sweet fragrance in this product, which is alright for when I use it on my lips, but is not great when I’m using it on my cheeks.
Ease of Use: 9.75/10
This tint is simple to apply to the lips–just use your fingers or a lip brush if you want to keep the product clean and are planning on also using it on your cheeks. For the cheeks, I’d use a dense kabuki brush. The product blends well over the skin, particularly given its cream formula.
For $38.00 you get 0.31 ounces (9 grams) of product. Givenchy’s Hydra Sparkling Magic Lip & Cheek Balm is $31.00 and contains 0.17 ounces. Edwards Bess’ Compact Rouge For Lips and Cheeks is $38.00 and contains 0.05 ounces. Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge For Lips And Cheeks is $25.00 and contains 0.13 ounces. So, even though the Tory Burch Lip & Cheek Tint looks like it has a high price tag, it’s actually providing much more product per dollar compared to similar products from other brands.
