LOL What am I doing -_– Hi awesome ladies, I’m here to bring you another lip product review! My first lip tint! I don’t use it that often though, because of my weird lips 😦 But I will review it anyway!
I got it in mini size, which is super-duper cute! The original size is a long tube, like the regular lip gloss, but the mini size is like a bloated bottle! It almost looks like the shape of an apple, but it resembles cherry more to me LOL The packaging is plastic, the bottle is transparent so you can see how much left you have inside.
The applicator is the usual doe-foot applicator. I found this applicator to be quite useful and effective, but I’m looking forward to a revolutionary applicator that can pick up the right amount and smudge it at the same time. I hate how my fingers also turned red after I blend this on my lips 😦
The swatch on the inside of my wrist! It actually looks super pretty if you blend it real well. It can make that cutie pie gradation lips and can also be used as a blush. Honestly, I never succeeded using this as a blush. I dot it 3 times, but as I blend I can still see the 3 darker dots T_T I think I should work faster and just dot one in a time. If it’s too sheer for you or if you want a darker color, you can layer it up.
Can you see how weird it is on my lips? Only the inner part of my lips will be stained, no matter how long I put the tint on the outer part T_T Well I can still blend another lipstick to smudge the line, so not a real problem there. It’s a bit drying, but I guess that’s how most of the water based tints work. If you have dry lips, applying lip balm before the tint will help a bit 🙂
Although I hate how my lips absorb the tint, I love the natural look. It looks like my lips are just naturally pinkish-red. Some days I will look kinda pale after I apply my cushion or BB/CC cream, and a tiny dab of this on the lips will freshen up the whole look. It doesn’t stay too long on my lips though. One of the reasons is I drink often from my water bottle. It stays maybe for 2-3 times drinking straight from the bottle (2-4 hours)and it will fade. However, even if it faded already, my lips still have that pinkish color from the stain~ It has a kind of bitter taste when I licked it, but only a tiny bit. It doesn’t go to the stage it changes the taste of what I’m drinking.
- Super cheap!
- A little goes a long way
- Cute packaging
- Fruity scent, but it’s undetectable unless you smell it straight from the bottle or applicator
- Red color fits all skin tone IMO
- Effective for gradation lips!
- 2-4 hours staying power
- A bit drying, don’t forget to use lip balm before hand
- Once it gets on your skin/finger, it will be hard to remove it without makeup remover. Water works, but you will need patience
- A slightly bitter after taste
Rating : ♥♥♥ 3/5
Will I repurchase this? NO, I don’t really like this lip tint but I don’t hate it either. I’m thinking of switching to a more moisturizing tint hehehe~
Is it only me, or the only-absorbed-in-the-inner-lip-part also happen to everyone? Or maybe that’s how a lip tint works? Anyway, what moisturizing lip tint will you recommend to someone else? For now, I can’t really recommend any lip tint because I haven’t love none 😦
Anyway, HAPPY MONDAY! I love how Tuesday and Thursday are holidays, that means I only have to go to campus on Wednesday~~~ Hahahahaha. Thank you for reading, and I’ll see you on Wednesday with another review!
