Introducing Heat Stroke: A Must-Have Dewy Gel Cheek Tint

“When I created Heat Stroke, I wanted a cheek product that delivered high impact color but could easily be diffused for a subtle, natural looking flush. Heat Stroke’s uniqueness lies in its formulation – hydrators ensure the product melts into skin for comfortable wear while sheer, skin-mimicking pigments allow for precise application and customization.”


The Formula:

Unlike many cream blushes, this innovative gel stick doesn't require warming before application, making it easy to apply and diffuse for a truly customizable flush. Its formula features skin-mimicking pigments and hydrating emollients, such as skin-plumping brown algae, which replenish moisture, provide occlusive benefits, and give it that glowy, skin-like finish.

Thanks to its dewy, translucence this gel-like blush stick blends seamlessly into skin and is particularly beneficial for those with dry or textured skin, as it does not sit on top of the skin.

The Shades:

Heat Stroke is available in eight shades, all of which are complimentary on a variety of skin tones. From brick red to berry and orange to Barbie pink, there’s a Heat Stroke for every look and occasion. While shades like inflamed, a Coral Orange, and Stimulated, a Hot Pink, appear bold at first glance, don’t be intimidated by their extremely pigmented bullets – their emollient texture allows for a sheer and subtle application.

What’s more, Heat Stroke can double as a Bronzing stick and subtle contour, too. Warm the complexion and enhance cheekbones and jawlines with Shades Toasted, a Warm Light Brown, and Baked, a Deep Chocolate Brown. Whether you want to sculpt, blush, or achieve sun-kissed skin sans the sun damage, there’s a Heat Stroke for that.

As Seen On Hailey Bieber:

That’s right, Heat Stroke is approved by none other than the queen of glowy, ‘Glazed Donut Skin’ herself. If you’re looking to emulate Hailey’s signature, bronzy glow, look no further than Heat Stroke in shade Toasted, which Hailey wears on lids and cheekbones. Do as Hailey does and and apply Toasted on lids, cheeks, lips, or anywhere you’d like a subtle wash of warmth.

How to Apply:

No matter your tool of choice—brush, sponge, or fingertips—Heat Stroke is extremely easy to apply.

For an extra-diffused flush, mix Heat Stroke with your favorite moisturizer on the backs of your hands. Gently tap onto your cheeks and blend out using your fingertips, a brush or damp beauty sponge.

While fingertips are great for melting product into skin, a fluffy brush works great with this gel formula thanks to its blendability. For a light application, simply give the bullet a swirl and buff onto cheeks. For a more pigmented look, swipe Heat Stroke directly onto cheeks, then use a densely packed brush to blend upward towards cheekbones and temples for added depth.

To contour, apply shades Toasted or Baked to the hollows of your cheeks, temples, and jawline.
