I use the lipstick directly out of the tube.
When you blend a lipstick that is waxy it melts into your skin rather than sitting on top of of your skin like a powder blush.
Best part is you can buy as many lipsticks in so many different shades and use them as a cheek color and lip color!
I like to put a blob of the lipstick on the back of my hand, then take my middle and index finger and just blend it into my skin.
