What if I told you I've found a product that has made me put my Glossier Cloud Paints aside? I've been trying out the Onomie Boosting Lip + Cheek Sticks* for the past few weeks now, and they've become everyday staples for sure.
You may remember I reviewed Onomie's other products a while ago, and I'm so excited for their newest launch. I'm all about cream/stick products as they're just so easy to use, especially on the go. They're incredibly hydrating and smoothing, so much so that they do seem to have a slight plumping effect on the lips and the cheeks. They're packed with nourishing oils and shea butter to hydrate, smooth, and firm the skin as well as give it a glow. They're quite a bit more pigmented than I was expecting, so they give a lovely natural-looking flush to both the lips and cheeks. They feel so nice and balmy on the skin - I would guess these may not be the best for oily skin, but my dry winter skin has been loving them. They give the skin a beautiful dewy glow that feels nourishing throughout the day, but not tacky. On the lips, they literally feel like lip balm.
The Boosting Lip + Cheek Sticks come in three shades: Nightingale, a nude shade that's a perfect natural bronzer shade for me; Tamar, a beautiful wine color that's quite natural and wearable; and Cruz, a bright berry shade that adds a pop of color. My favorite of the three is Tamar, because it's right between the other two shades, so it gives me a little bit of bronze and a little bit of color. On days I have more time to apply my makeup, I'll use Nightingale as a bronzer and Cruz as a blush, but on rushed mornings I'll just use Tamar and be done.
These wear quite well throughout the day, too - I find they last all day on my cheeks and continue to feel nourishing up until I remove my makeup at the end of the day, and the color doesn't get patchy or really wear away at all. On the lips, it does wear off of course and behaves as most tinted lip balms. It's not slippy, though, so there's no need to worry about it ending up anywhere but your lips. This is one of the few multi-use products where I don't really have a preference of where I apply it - it works equally well on lips and cheeks for me.
The Onomie Boosting Lip + Cheek Sticks are $30 each, and if you get the Smart Trio you get the Cheeky Blending Brush for free. I’ve been loving the brush to blend the products out on my cheeks - it does such a great job and is so quick! I also love that it’s retractable, so it’s easy to take on the go for touch ups.
