“ Brand: MeMeMe / Type: Blushers / Suitable for: Lip „
I've had this for years, when I say this, I mean I've literally had this bottle for about 2 years and it's only half empty!
I purchased mine from Superdrug for I think, around £5.
The tint is a dark rougey red, water-like liquid. It does smell a little strange, sour smell in the bottle and when first applied to the skin, but this does go almost immediately.
The screw lid contains an applicator brush - the same as with nail varnish. This brush holds just enough liquid to swipe over your cheeks - the liquid doesn't drip off the brush.
I tend to use 2 swipes on each cheek then blend in. The liquid is easy to blend in, it doesn't dry too quickly so you don't have to rush to apply it.
Once rubbed in it creates an even, flushed, natural colour on the cheeks - you can intensify the colour by building up the applications.
The liquid sits well over foundation and any other base on the face, the blush also looks great without any other product underneath.
The blush lasts well, when applied in the morning I still look rosie cheeked - not as much as in the AM, but there still is a hint of colour in my cheeks.
The product is easy to remove with your usual cleanses/tone regime.
I have tried the Benetint on the cheeks, and I can honestly say this is an identical product - just without the hefty price tag!
I don't tend to use this as a lip stain, I have tried it a few times and it gives a subtle, flushed look to the lips, but I found that it was a little drying and went a bit patchy.
As a blusher I cannot fault this product--apart from the weird smell!! I wear this eveyday without fail, to bring some glow into my face!
It's cheap as chips and lasts a long, long time
5 stars as a blush
If anyone has read my review on Benefit Benetint, then they will probably be glad to hear me when I say that these are EXACTLY THE SAME. I own both this version and Benefit's, and can honestly say that I can't tell them apart.
The idea is the same, it's a liquid blush, it's a very thin consistency, so a little goes a long way. It resembles a nail varnish bottle, and application is similar. A word of advice - try not to spill it! Due to it's thin consistency, you are very likely to lose the entire bottle if you tilt it a bit too far... so be careful!
You can use this stain on both cheeks and lips. Which makes it even more purse friendly. It's easy to justify £5-£6 when you are technically getting two products in one. (NB, Benetint is usually around £22. You do the maths.)
If you are using it on lips, I would advise you to apply it straight from the brush, like a lipgloss. It will tickle, but the long lasting stain is worth it.
If you are using it as a blush, I would recommend using your fingers, to avoid brush marks. And avoid using it on top of lots of powder, as you will end up with an unattractive pink paste!
As usual I found myself walking around Superdrug looking at different products in order to enhance myself. I came across MeMeMe Pussycat Cheek & Lip Tint and immediately saw a resembelance to the 'Benefit Benetint', except this one was only £4.99. I once had a mini make-over with Benefit and had the 'Benetint' used on me and absolutely loved it.
I already have a MeMeMe mascara and thought it was pretty decent, so I thought I would give this product a go. Besides when your make-up is all one brand, I think it just makes everything look alot neater and tidier.
I absolutely love the packaging and as mentioned above I do believe that it resembles Benefit. I love the playfulness of the packaging. A small nail varnish like bottle in cute playful writing. The clear bottle is good as it shows you the colour of the substance.
This product claims to be a lip and cheek tint. However, I am sure as you are aware that if you had the same colour cheeks and lips.. well that would just look silly. Using the tint on my cheek was pretty simple. Apply a little of the liquid using the nail varnish like brush and then smudging it in with your finger. However, maybe people do not want to be using their fingers to apply or complete the look of their make up. Using the brush alone for your cheeks with give a slightly liney effect. It will simply look like you have got a nail varnish (albeit a light one) and drew a streak across your face. I would say the application of the product onto the cheeks is mid-tricky. Applying the product to your lips is a whole new different story. As mentioned that the brush is like a nail varnish brush, imagine trying to put a lip tint on your lips with that type of brush. Tricky I tell ya. Not only that, I believe that the colour is too dark for the lips (my lips anyway). As mentioned above also having the same colour lips and cheeks would just simply look silly. I give it a 4/5 for the cheeks and a 2/5 for the lips.
At £4.99, I believe that this is quite reasonable. The finish the tint gives on the cheeks is nice and maybe this tint will suit someone for use on both lips and cheeks. Who knows. I know that you shouldnt judge a book by its cover, but I judged this tint by its packaging and this was why I bought the product for £4.99.
I like this product and would buy it again. Its not perfect and could definitely do with some improvements, such as the brush shape and the overall colour to suit both lips and cheeks. I think this product does deserve a second chance and maybe for some it will suit lips and some will suit cheeks. Maybe this product isnt designed for both lips and cheeks for one person. Nonetheless I like this product and would recommend that at least you give it a go.
This is a cheek and lip stain, immitating Benefit's 'Benetint', from Superdrug's MeMeMe range. It costs £4.99.
Using this product on my lips, I try not to use a lot as the colour is quite dark for me. It is quite tricky to apply - the brush is just like a nail varnish brush, so you have to have quite a steady hand, and to make matters worse it tickles a bit. It's a good strong colour, and it stays on for absolutely ages. There is a scent to it which sticks around, it's not too overpowering though, and it smells like roses.
I've tried this product on my cheeks but I don't really like it. For starters, I don't really like wearing blush anyway, although I could do with a bit of colour, I always wind up looking like a clown. This colour was far too dark for my pale complexion. I did find it relatively easy to apply though. Just a few dots on your cheeks, and then immediately blend in before it gets chance to dry. I wish MeMeMe did this in a lighter pink, like Benefit's Posie Tint. I'd definitely give it another go on my cheeks then.
This product seems to me (and from the reviews and beauty mags) to be THE cheaper alternative to Benetint. I'd seen it many times in mags, and i was interested to see what this would be like. It is sold in Superdrug for around 4.99, so I thought why not give it a go?
I took it home, and unscrewed the bottle and the brush didn't look how i expected. As a reviewer here stated; it looks like a little nail varnish brush, with vinyl bristles. I didn't think much more of it and tried to use it. Like the other reviewers on here, i quickly learnt that you have to be faster than the speed of light in rubbing this in, else you get left with a dark red blob on your face! The consistency of this is somewhat like red food colouring, so the second it goes on, it starts to stain. So i figured i'd have to be a bit quicker. I fiinally managed, after some experimentation to get this looking decent after my third or fourth go, and realised the best thing to do was to put tiny blobs in, and rub in a tiny blob of crimson red until its pinky, then make another one.
The problem with doing this though is the bottle. its like a nail varnish bottle, and doesnt seem to have any kind of nozzle on it that would stop it glugging out if it got knocked, or prevent so much going onto the brush. So everytime you use this you have to be seated in front of a table, with a hands free mirror, like a dressing table or something. you cant do this on the train, or quickly at work, because its quite fiddly business, with the constant looming paranoia that it will spill and stain EVERYTHING! If this spills, you really have had it, so i tend to not use this when i'm out and about.
As for using it as a lip tint, well...
When i was a child, my grandma kept a little bottle of rat poison on the highest shelf and told me never to go near it, letalone taste any of it because it was poison. as a child i always wondered what rat poison actually tasted like, but i think i've finally found the answer. As another reviewer suggested earlier- it tastes rank! and the colour is a very blue based pinky red, which doesnt do it for me anyhow.
its because of these disadvantages that i still use powder blusher or creamy blush in a tube, because most times it isn't convenient to use this. fine as a novetly product, but as a make up bag staple, it doesnt work for me.
Well, I'd been looking at Benefit products for a while but just couldn't find any excuse to fork out the £21 I would need to buy Benefits "Benetint" and so I was delighted when on a trip to Superdrug I found this product. It does , at first glance, look suspiciously like the aformentioned tint however it's worlds apart if for nothing but the price!
This little baby will only set you back around £4.99 from superdrug and will last you a lifetime! I've had mine about 2 years and it's still half full! It comes in a little glass bottle and has an inbuilt brush applicator in the lid which seems to be the best way to apply this stuff as it is very liquid indeed. I only use it on my lips as I'm really pale and like to keep my face very white and lips nice and chery tinted! it looks very snow-white-esque hehe! You can get a more dramatic effect from this product by layering it up to make a more intense colour.
I personally like this tint because I hate lipstick and the stickiness of it...it's no good for laying a big smacker on your boyfriends lips as he'll be wearing it too! but with a tint the colour stays on you and there are no embarassing smudges!
Overall, a great product, one i definately recommend!
Ok, so this is a pink stain for your cheeks and lips. It comes in a clear bottle with a silver lip, which I've never had a problem with, and it's great to be able to see how much you've used at any point.
Like most people, I've only ever used powder blushers before. I'm very pale, so I find a nice hint of colour on my cheeks makes me look so much healthier. I was quite happy with my Mary Kay blush, so hadn't really thought of using anything else until a mini Benefit catalogue turned up in one of my magazines. Inside, I read about the oh-so famous Benetint. I'm easily suckered into buying new products, and have tried many 'innovative' foundations, moisturisers, hairsprays and so on which have turned out to be complete and utter rubbish. So, continuing with the trend of adding to my already huge make-up collection, I decided to buy Benetint!
So, I ventured into town to head to the nearest Boots, but along the way, I was distracted by Superdrug. I've always been a fan of MeMeMe, so instinctively headed over to the little illuminated section. I was just browsing, when this little gem caught my eye; Pussycat Cheek & Lip Tint! I'd never noticed it before, and it was hidden in amongst various different concealers and such. I first thought it was Benetint, as the packaging is so similar. Then I noticed the price tag. £3.74! £3.74?! Reduced, from £4.99, but still a far cry from the re-mortgage-your-house cost of Benetint. I couldn't not buy it, could I?
Excited by my bargain buy, I rushed home to try it out. I was a little unsure of how to use it. I should explain that the brush is like one of those you find in an ordinary nail varnish, and the actual stain is just a very thin liquid, just like water. So, I just washed and moisturised my face, applied a little foundation and powder and dabbed a little on my cheeks. Unfortunately, I waited too long before I blended it in, and I looked so awful. Honestly, it was hideous! I had streaks and lines across my freshly cleaned face and looked like I'd been in a fight with a cat. The colour was also too dark. I'd only used a small amount, but my cheeks were a shocking shade of barbie pink!
I took it all of, and tried again. This time, I applied it straight after my foundation and smoothed it in immediately. Then, I just dusted on my powder as usual. I found this much better. It blended easily on my slightly damp and moist skin, and the powder toned the colour down a little. I was pleased with the results and just looked glowing and natural. It's very sheer without a hint of shimmer, so it didn't look like I was wearing blush at all!
Next, I thought I'd try it on my lips. I have naturally very pink lips, and I found that this was just a bit rubbish. It tasted horrible, and ended up looking patchy and unnatural. It also bled a little, so my lips looked weird. It does last, though. So if you like how it looks on you, then you won't have to worry about re-applying it.
I find that it also lasts quite well on my cheeks. After 8 busy hours, I still have a slight flush to my face, even without re-application! It does wash off easily, though, so you don't have to keep scrubbing!
All in all, I really do like this product. I find that it usually gives very nice results, although only on my cheeks. I must admit that it only replaces my trusty powder when I have the time to spare, as I'm not very good at applying make up and a powder is just safer. I also think that this tiny bottle will also last ages, and ages! Unfortunately, the use by on it is 6 months, so it'll probably be thrown out long before it's used up, but at this price, who cares?!
My skin is quite well behaved, but I can't see what problems could occur. I really think that this product would suit most skin tones and types. I should also point out that I'm really very, very pale, which is why it was a little dark for me without powder to tone it down.
I suppose the only real concerns that I have about using this on my cheeks, is the consistency of the product. Although it's very blendable, I'm always very scared about spilling it and staining everything around me. It's also quite fragranced, it smells very floral. This doesn't bother me too much, but does taste awful on the lips and could possibly bother very sensitive skin.
I can't compare this to anything else, as I haven't used any other cheek and lip tints. If you've tried this and don't like it, there's also the obvious Benetint which you could try, or The Body Shop's own version of this product.
Overall, I'd say buy it! It's affordable and effective. Yay! :)
After reading a review submitted by the lovely Missixty and all her references to MeMeMe made by Superdrug and stocked only in Superdrug off I went to take a look at the range. I went percifically to look for the illuminator that Missixty raves about so much but at the moment I have a few highlighters and decided that when I run out I will purchase that and I thought I'd something I didnt already have.
I love blusher. I'm not blessed with high cheekbones so to create a more sculpted look I use blusher and highlighter and I fake em! However blusher can look rather clown like and rather fake. I've tried alot of different varieties, colours and concepts over the years from pan cake sticks to the powder kinds which is what I use now. So I have a few different blusher powders but they are all quite harsh and I'm realy pale so when I came across this product I was intrigued by it.
I've never used Benetint. The reason for this is I live in Coventry and I cant find a stockist of Benefit, my Boot's dont stock the range! However I have read reviews that the idea behind this is very similar to that of Benetint and this is a bit of a rip off of it. However I can't compare this to Benetint I can only review this on it's own merits!
MeMeMe, Pussycat, Cheek & Lip Tint.
What The Product Says About Itself...."This product is a steal -copycat of a rather expensive lip/cheek tint from a famous brand, this product does the same job for much less. Such a natural tint - it looks like you are blushing from inside out - no one can tell it is make up!!!"
It's a 12ml recylable glass bottle with a silver plastic screw on/off lid. On the front in white writing tells me it is indeed Pussycat Cheek and Lip Tint and on the back tells me it is Me Me Me. Unscrew the lid there is a long thin brush. You can see the dark purplish liquid throught the glass. The product looks exactly as in the review photograph!
Well I haven't stopped using it since last week! Amazing! I apply it after foundation and before finishing with pressed powder. I apply it to the fleshy part of my cheek (not a lot) with the brush and blend with a foundation sponge. Tips on this is don't use your fingers as it stains them and its hard to get off! Also be quick at rubbing it in otherwise it drys on as you've applied it and it doesn't matter how much you rub it in it's stuck on your face and you can resemble a red indian!
It's incredibly natural. There's no shimmer just a healthy natural glow and whats more not only cos you dont need much is it a very long laster but I found it stayed on my cheeks all day long. If yo do have any broken capillaries near your cheeks you do need to avoid them. The colour is fairly dark and although natural it does highlight any blemishes you have as it goes through your foundation to stain so you haven't got that cover up any longer. I have a couple of really small red marks on my cheeks that are not visible to the naked eye and I never knew they existed before using this product. I am aware of them now though. Still dont be off put though cos avoidance works very well! It goes over foundation really well and even if you use pressed powder as a finishing product like I do it doesn't cover up the colour you've achieved.
Another benefit of this product is the smell. I noticed it smelt of roses, like rose water as I applied it but a few hours later I was going out and said ta ra to my Mother when she commented how nice I smelt and I said does it smell of roses and she said definetely!
Now I've raved about the benefit on the cheeks because that is why I purchased it lets not forget it is a lip tint as well. For me the colour is too pink. It's like a fushia colour on the lips and too old fashioned for my personal choice. Also, and this seems nit picking but the brush is made up of like synthetic bristles that really tickle the lips but uncomfortably so in my case to almost painful, so if you are going to use it on lips I'd try it and if you do want to use it regualr use your own little lip brush! For me the coverage isnt enough and it does feel very drying and the taste and the smell of roses isn't all that pleasant. On the upside, as on the cheeks its a stayer giving me about 3 hours of continous colour with a cup of tea and a ciggie its fine too!
For a cheek stain this is brilliant. It's easy to apply, natural and lasts. It just take a little getting used to, if like me your used to blushers in powder form! Suitable for any age and in my eyes very worth it's price tag.
My biggest complaint above everything is it's cheap packaging, which is a big shame. It's been in my make up bag with a few other items and I've noticed the white writing on it is coming off which is a big bug bare of mine Im afraid! Tut at Superdrug for that!
Usual price is £4.99 only in Superdrug but at the time of submitting this review it is £3.99 and a real bargain!

Blush from the inside out with this cheeky lip tint!
