I have chappy and dry lips. Previously I used to use simple lip balm, and I have to re-apply it from time to time since it doesn’t stay on for too long, especially after I eat and drink. Although I like my lips to be colored, but I am not a fan of lipstick for some reason (which I also doesn’t know well, lol), so I will usually buy those color-changing lip balms.
And if you must know, I am not the most up-to-date person when it comes to fashion or beauty products, hihi. So when I went to South Korea last year, at one of the beauty shop in Myeongdong, I came upon this interesting item called lip-tint. So I bought this Peripera Peri’s Ink (the one in the middle in the picture above). I like it a lot! The tint is a bit thick, moisturize my lips, and the color can stay on for whole day too :)
Last March, I tried another lip tint from TheFaceShop, called My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tint (the one on the most right in the picture above). Hmm, to be honest, I am not a fan of this one – it doesn’t really help with my dry lips, not thick enough and doesn’t stay long at all! I have to keep re-applying it from time to time – but problem is, even the cheap and simple lip balm feels even nicer. Maybe the plus point is, since it’s not thick, you don’t have to worry if the tint color will be too much? I don’t know. But one thing for sure, I’m not going to buy it again.
Then last month, I gave it a try on TonyMoly’s LipTone Get It Tint Water Bar (the one on the most left in the picture above). I give thumbs up too on this one. It’s moisturizing and the color can stay long too! It’s also easier to apply compared to the last two – I can worry less about spilling the content, and I can even apply it while driving too :P To control the color level, you can dap it lightly on your lips instead of spreading it like lipstick or lip balm :)
This picture was taken during one of my ex-colleague’s farewell, and oh, the focus is that I have this lip tint on (I’m the one on the right, hihi).
p/s: This is from my own personal usage and experience. The result may vary on different people :) The sole purpose of this “review” is just to share my experience, thank you.
