Lip Tint is life? What it is and is it safe?

Most of the cosmetics junkies I’m sure knows what a lip tint is, but I’ll still tell you  what it is. Lip Tint became in trend in early 2017. It’s a lip cosmetic that is made of organic ingredients that’s supposed to help our lips stay soft, and looks natural when worn. Different shades was released, making Lip Tints sell best than lipsticks.

There are two types of Lip Tint, the water-based and the gel-based.

Water-based, meaning a Lip Tint is composed of organic products combined/mixed with water. Best example is this Lip Tint from Lubly Lucs who sells organic cosmetics but their best selling products are their Lip Tints. Lubly Lucs just released 6 shades of Lip Tints.

Water-based Lip Tints give you nice pigment of shades. It’s water-proof, smudge-proof and kiss-proof. Yes, it lasts longer than a lipstick.

Like Lubly Lucs’, most of the organic Lip Tints smell sweet and taste good, while some other brands’ Lip Tints have bitter taste. Well, it really depends on what brand you’re going to try.

The other type of Lip Tint is the Gel-based Lip Tint. It lasts longer than water-based (based on my observation) because it has more pigment due it’s a combination of organic products, gel recipe and a small amount of water. Like the water-based it is hard to take off, it’s water-proof, kiss-proof, and smudge-proof.

Sulips is the best brand to use as an example for this type, because it is really pigmented and it has the right characteristics of a gel-based Lip Tint. Sulips has 5 shades available online and other organic cosmetics in the near future.

Lip Tints are not only for the lips. You can also use it as your blush and eye shadow, no kidding. That is, if you’re looking into a long lasting day to night make up. It is actually called a Lip and Cheek Tint nowadays, and many beauty gurus create a tutorial for a full make up using Lip Tint products. Insane, right? But it works.

Lip Tints are safe to use. Well, the ingredients are as follows; Aqua, Glycerin, Colorants, Vitamin E Extract, Aloe Extract and Glycol. People of all ages and genders can use it, yes you read it right, it’s safe for kids too. Oh and let’s not forget the pregnant women and lactating/breastfeeding moms, you can use it too mumshies! Don’t Panic it’s organic!

Thankful for all the blessing that I’m receiving from different people. Last week I got a gift from a local online shop. The shops name is Safiya Beautique. Safiya sells organic lip & cheek tints, Skin care and other cosmetic products.

They sent me a set of their lip & cheek tint and an eyebrow pomade.

Organic Lip & Cheek Tint
I got the whole existing collection that has 5 shades; Belle, Blueberry, Strawberry, Amber & Berry Bliss.

It’s waterbased, no oilyness at all. It’s organic, long lasting, smudge proof & water proof. I always check the smell of each products that I review. I love products that smell good, who doesn’t, right? well, these lip tints didn’t disappoint.

It’s a great thing that Safiya’s 10ml Tints are made with organic ingredients which make it ideal for all skin types. The tints smell good, like a flower and beyond that, it doesn’t have a bitter taste. In fact, it tasted sweet.

Tints are known to last longer than lipsticks and these proved that. It’s waterproof, easy to blend and smudge proof. Its retail price is 130 Php each. Not bad, because the pigment is really nice and when I tried it, my lips didn’t dry up.

Available Shades
Belle
– Belle’s shade is more on the purple side of the color palette.

Blueberry – This shade is more like a burgundy but darker. Imagine a red-brownish color. A strong color that best fit for a bolder look.

Amber – Amber shade is poppin’ orange-y. It’s a playful color that is best for a fun cheeky look.

Strawberry – If you’re into looking cute and all that, this shade is perfect. It’s pink but not too pink, just the right amount of cuteness.

Berry Bliss – I must say, Berry Bliss is my favorite among all of the shades, because it has the perfect pigment that I’d need for my lips and cheeks. I love it! It’s color is a subtle red that is perfect for a natural blush and lips look.

Eyebrow Pomade
Along with the eyebrow pomade, they sent me a dual purpose Anastacia (eyebrow) brush to use when applying the product.

What made it really interesting is that they claimed that this 10g eyebrow pomade is made with a hair grower. It is really pigmented. For me it’s  a bit oily and sticky, but that’s because of my skin type. I recommend this product because it’s easy to apply, easy to blend and the shade is nice. Also, it doesn’t have a strong nor a bad smell.

If you’re following me on instagram you might see there what my thoughts on the ‘hair grower’ feature of this product. You can buy this Eyebrow Pomade for the price of 150 Php. This product is smudge-free, all natural and organic pomade formula that performs as an all-in-one wonder brow product. It’s creamy and it glides on skin and hair smoothly to create clean and defined brows. It is available in two shades; medium brown & dark brown.

I hope this blog is helpful for make up lovers in choosing what brand should you try or buy. It’s always overwhelming receiving sample (or actual) products for review. Very thankful!
