Review: ModelCo Cheek & Lip Tint

I bought ModelCo Cheek & Lip Tint during a Luxola sale. The original price is US$24 for 10ml on the ModelCo website, which is slightly pricy and makes it the same price per ml (US$2.4 per ml) as Benetint, which is US$30 for 12.5ml. 
It is a thick gel with a fruity scent - I mainly use it as a lip stain, because the gel is a little too thick and I don't feel comfortable applying it on my cheeks since I'm oily and acne-prone. I love the shade - it is a lovely berry/plum that looks very natural on me. (I find berry looks more natural than red tints.)
It blends easily and as you can see from the swatch above, it stains well. In fact, it is one of the most long-lasting stains I've used and I have used a lot! I will repurchase this - it is not drying, the colour is just really flattering and pigmented, and staying power is pretty good! As compared to ModelCo, Benetint is just not pigmented enough, too watery and doesn't have enough staying power. The only con is that I find it on the pricey side - I will try to get it during future Luxola sales.
