My love of DuWop's Lip Venom (in all its forms) is well known. I seriously make everyone I know try it when they're around me. So I was super excited to hear that DuWop had come out with a cheek version and couldn't wait to get my hands on it. Cheek Venom is a cream blush that comes in a little pot - you apply it with your fingers (you can use a brush too, but I think fingers work better). It uses a blend of silicones and hyaluronic acid to hydrate and condition your skin, and it also firms and tightens your cheeks. I was a little scared when I put it on the first time - I don't mind that tingling feeling on my lips, but I wasn't sure how I would like it on my cheeks. The good news is - it's a lot less intense on your cheeks. You can definitely feel it working, but it's not uncomfortable at all. Once it's on, the mix of essential oils in it warms up your cheeks and stimulates your circulation, giving your cheeks a natural flush. And as a bonus, there are long lasting pigments in the formula that will leave a little bit of color on your cheeks all day, so you don't need to reapply to look good. Also, I love that it's a cream because it's totally portable. No need to take up space in your bag with a big brush - just apply and go. Cheek Venom comes in two shades - Sidewinder, a nude flush, and Diamondback, a hot coral pink. I tested out Sidewinder and loved the color it gave me - it looked like I'd just run a few miles around my neighborhood. (And any makeup that can make me look like I've been working out when I've really been sitting on the couch watching "Gossip Girl" definitely gets my seal of approval). Now if only it could actually DO the exercise for me, I'd be all set.
