ModelCo Creme Rouge Cheek and Lips review & swatches

If you're a regular reader of the blog, you will probably be aware that I love a multitasker. Multitasking products are just so darn convenient, and today I have another one to show you all!

ModelCo's Creme Rouge Cheek and Lips is a cream blush and lip colour in one. It promises to provide a sheer, buildable colour that leaves the cheeks looking dewy and naturally flushed and the lips with a hint of tint.

It only comes in one shade at the moment which is Just Peachy, a shade that is a bright, vivid red in the pan but applies far softer on the skin.

It comes packaged in a small, circular, glossy black compact with a transparent section in the flip cap lid. It holds 3.6g/0.12oz of product.


You can use your finger, a makeup sponge or stippling brush for application, but I find that you may use a tad more product with the sponge than with the other methods.

On the lips you can use your finger or a lip brush to apply it.


The first thing that you will notice with ModelCo's Creme Rouge is that even though the shade may look a little daunting in the pan, when applied it is a beautiful coral. The pigmentation is good and a small amount goes quite a long way.

As promised, it is both sheer and buildable. It also blends out beautifully on the skin with minimal effort.

The swatch below is a small amount blended on the left for more subtlety and with it built up for more opacity on the right.

You get enough time to blend it out properly before it sets, so there is far less chance of blotches of product.

On the lips I find that it applies with a creamy finish that dries matte. It has some great lasting power as well and very little transfer.

It can feel a bit drying on the lips, but it isn't the most drying product. 

Overall, I'm really enjoying Creme Rouge. The colour is gorgeous and super wearable. It's perfect for spring and summer for that subtle pop of colour that lasts. Whether you like a more vivid wash of colour or a subtle hint, you are likely to find what you are after with this.

You can purchase the ModelCo Creme Rouge Cheek and Lips for £14/3.6g from ModelCo.
