For Cream Blush Sticks
Learn all the ways you can use our favourite multifunctional beauty product
Multi-use makeup is great when you’re short on time and short on space in your toiletries bag, which is why we love cream blush sticks. They’re versatile, easy to use and small enough to slip into your handbag. We created the Code8 5Secs Lip & Cheek Colour as the ultimate multitasking crayon. Praised by Lisa Armstrong of the Telegraph and loved by beauty bloggers worldwide, this vegan-friendly and paraben free product is admired because it’s just so versatile. Here are the three ways we love to wear it.
On the cheeks - for a youthful flush
The 5Secs Lip & Cheek Colour is ultra-flattering when worn as a cheek tint. It helps to create a polished and effortless look that’s balanced with a dose of vibrancy. All you have to do is apply a little dab of colour on the apples of your cheeks. Draw on to your cheeks directly with the crayon, apply it with your fingers or use a fluffy brush to apply the product, and then gently blend it outwards along the cheekbone. The result is a creamy natural-looking blush that melts seamlessly into the skin.
On the lips - for a pop of colour
Another way to wear the 5Secs Lip & Cheek Colour is as a traditional lip crayon. Combining the hydrating and repairing benefits of a lip balm with the colour effect of a sheer lipstick, you can glide it quickly and easily over your pout for a wash of colour that also leaves your lips intensely hydrated. Its nourishing formula contains Shea Butter, Sunflower Seed Oil and Meadowfoam Seed Oil, all of which are natural emollients that soothe the skin and help keep moisture locked in. Wear it on its own, over lipstick, or under a plumping gloss, either way the results will be stunning.
On the eyes - as a chic wet-look shadow
The most experimental and exciting way to wear a creamy blush stick like the 5Secs Lip & Cheek Colour is on the eyes. The pink and red eyeshadow trend first became popular in 2020, as an alternative to a classic smokey eye, and the glossy ruby-red look is set to stay for 2021 and beyond. Simply dot the 5Sec Lip & Cheek Colour above your upper lash line and then use your finger to blend it up towards your crease. The formula is so rich and nourishing it will give you that effortless wet-look and is almost foolproof as it’s so easy to apply. Finish with some lashing of mascara and you’ve created the ultimate statement eye.
