Lip Tint #1 The Mother of All Lip Tint
It’s only right to call this product the mother of lip tint because when there is no lip tint in Korea, this product came out and introduce the wonder of lip tint. It’s a water lip tint and it gives a natural look.
Lip Tint #1 Review
Let’s talk about the good side of this particular tint. First of all, the color is pretty and looks natural. That’s probably why it’s easy to wear, essential when you need lip product with quick application.
Lip Tint #1 Natural Color
On the other hand, let’s review some of the cons. The packaging in overall isn’t good, the brush is somewhat feels weak and because the lid opens easily, the product leaked sometime when you carry it around in makeup pouch. Formulation wise, it’s decent as a blush, but for the lips, it’s dry by itself, so lip balm is a must. After a while it only stays inside your lips which is not pretty so you need to fix that and reapply throughout the day.
Lip Tint #2 It Item
The panel describe this lip tint as an it-item, which every woman have it in their makeup pouch. It’s hot among celebrities too, actress such as Jun Jihyun and Rhee Minjung use it.
Lip Tint #2 Review
Some of the postitive feedback from the panel is the color is so vivid and pretty, the finish is glossy so no need to put on lipgloss on top, and the formulation is great as well. It’s so moisturizing even by its own, which is rare for a lip tint. The tip of the applicator is so unique and make it convenient to draw the lip line.
Lip Tint #2 Moisturizing and Vivid Color
The only drawback is that it’s pretty thick so you can’t layer the application. If you apply it too thick and speak for a long time, you may feel clumps build up. And it’s actually depend on how much you willing to spend for a good lip tint, but many people feel that the price is a bit steep.
Lip Tint #3 Younger Version of Product Number 1
This is the younger aka cheaper version of product number 1 and that’s probably why it’s popular among teens.
Lip Tint #3 Review
Compared with #1, it has a little bit longer lasting ability even though it’s not long enough for it to stay all day. And it’s slightly more moisturizing.
Lip Tint #3 Decent Lasting Ability
Some of the drawbacks are the color doesn’t removed as easily as #1, it leaves a little bit of residue. The color isn’t as lovely and natural as #1 (see on picture above: #3 left #1 right). Even though when you first apply it the color looks vivid, it disappears gradually so you need to reapply.
Lip Tint #4 New Rising Star
Just as it sound, it’s a new product and it’s so popular among teens just like product number 3. It has double lid which is pretty useless and a bit weird.
Lip Tint #4 Review
The only good thing about it is the lasting ability. It lasts probably the longest between 5 products on this list. Teenager blindly like it just because this one reason.
Lip Tint #4 Long Lasting
It’s actually not a good product, for many reasons. First of all, it’s dry. To be fair, it feels moist at first but later it becomes so dry to the extend that it leaves blotches on the dead skin. The packaging isn’t the best either. Apart from the double lid thingy, it takes so much room in makeup pouch so it’s nowhere near practical. The color is so vivid to the extend that it won’t come off.
Lip Tint #5 Simple Packaging, Great Formula
Best formula overall. It’s water tint but it’s not dry. Water tint is a product that made by mixing purified water and coloring agent so usually there’s no moisture at all. But this one contains argan oil, that’s why it has subtle moist feeling. It’s perfect for daily use.
Lip Tint #5 Review
The only flaw is, the packaging is too simple, no amazing design or anything like that thus make it looks cheap. For people who have their pride on their makeu products, this is not for you.
Lip Tint #5 Best Formula
Beside the great formula, this product also very cheap. You can get it by skip one cup of coffee in the morning, that’s how much it cost.
