Spell is the latest new entry in the RMS Beauty Lip2Cheek family. It was launched in May 2016, just in time for summer. It has a warm brown tone and can mimic the healthy effect of the tan.
PERFORMANCE: this is a multi tanker product as it can bemused as a blush for the cheeks and as a lipstick. RMS Beauty describes it as a dusty rose shade: IMO it is more of a warm brown. On my uber pale skin it looks a little bit ruddy and does not warm up my cheeks enough.
When used on the lips it provides a 60s Brigitte Bardot effect, less pasty though. It is quite dry and requires the use of a lip balm. The undertone is quite warm, but it is very draining. It would work with smokey eyes though.
Spell is quite pigmented and a little goes a long way. It does not last all day and has to be reapplied/retouched during the day. I prefer Kjaer Weis blushes (click for review) to this product by RMS.
I have owned other Lip2cheek and the problem I have experienced with every single one of them is they become rock solid in the pot and very hard to spread on the cheeks. I have to warm the product with the fingers before applying.
Overall I am not very impressed.

HOW TO USE IT: it can be used on the cheeks, applied with fingers or with the excellent RMS Skin2skin Blush Brush.
It can be applied also on the lips, but it s quite dry and requires a lip balm. It can be sheered out if the applied after the lip balm or layered for a more creamy/lipstick like effect.
It may be used also for the eye, but the colour is quite pale and may make you look dead.

CONTENT AND PACKAGING:
4.25 grams. The product is contained in a glass vase with a metallic lid. Don’t be misled by the small size as Spell is pigmented enough to allow you to use very little. The pot lasts ages and it is very portable.
WHERE TO BUY:
from: The Detox Market

I purchased the product with my money. It was NOT sent by PR and I did not receive any money to post this review.
