So today I bring to you a review I meant to do long time ago! It's what I wear everyday because I love it so much!! Lipstick is lovely because it can add some color to your face but, it can be messy~and I don't like eating it. That is why I decided to try out lip tints since they give off a more natural look and the color stays too. As for those that want a dramatic look, lip tints can provide that as well! All you have to do is layer it and add some color popping gloss ^o^!! I sound like I'm advertising huh?

Anyways~I've tried couple lip tints before in my life...I believe it was from Sephora? I just don't remember the brand. BUT it didn't stay on that well so no need for my mentioning >=]. What is WORTH mentioning is Lioele's blooming pop tint collection. In case you guys don't know about Lioele, it is a korean brand that is sold on www.prettyandcute.com. I was hesitant in trying out products I never heard of, but I must say...I'M A FAN♥♥♥
As you can see, these lip tints are tiny little bottles that come in 3 different colors. There is Pinky Tint, Orange Tint, and Cherry Tint. All are very typical natural looking colors for everyday wear. It's NOT just a lip tint, in fact you can even use it on your cheeks!! The packaging is cute and convenient for on the go~~it just kind of looks like nail polish and sometimes people look at me like o.O "Are you putting nail polish on your lips???"
Overall I think the packaging is very cute and it doesn't leak ^o^ Also the consistency is perfect. It's not sticky at all and it feels a bit wet at first, but once it dries it feels like you're wearing nothing.
As for the color, it's quite sheer when you blend it into your lips but you definitely see a difference. If you like looking natural, one or two layers of any of the colors is great. If you want a more popping look, do more then one layer and add a bit of gloss. It will definitely bring out your lips! Also for your cheeks, apply a little bit and blend with your fingers. After, put a bit of setting powder to make it look more natural. Very convenient for traveling ^o^ you only need one product for two functions!!
Lastly the staying power is wonderful. I recommend not putting on lip balm before applying the tint. It stays better when it adheres directly to your skin and it doesn't really come off when you're eating. At the end of the day, I can still notice the tint on both my lips and cheek =D!
Only complaint I have is that it can run out fast sometimes T^T! If you use the cherry tint, it actually lasts longer since it's more watery. As for the pinky and orange tint, the consistency is more globby and lip gloss like so more product comes out and it runs out faster too. Otherwise I have NO complaints whatsoever!!
Now on to swatches~~
First off is the original swatch from lioele~I actually think those photos represent the color quite well! It looks pretty similar to that in real life. My photos kind of washed out the color so I had to do a bit of lighting adjustment in order to present it most accurately!

|Sorry if it's not that clear T^T I tried~~|
As you can see it does show up, but you would need to do more then one layer if you want it to be really obvious. I had to slather on whole bunch just for it to show up in photos since my camera tends to wash makeup out T^T. Also adding lip gloss will sometimes enhance the color.
Ready for all my camwhore pictures of me wearing lip tints??
Before that..here is a BEFORE photo of my clean lips with no color whatsoever:
|clean lips..no color T^T|
Now, first off..
|This is a very natural version~see how its not that red?|
|excuse my heavy makeup, Flash makes it shows up more! Here I have redder lips~|
|Cherry tint can be made more dramatic as seen here compared to first photo|
|very red huh?|
|very cherry like indeed♥|
|Pinky tint is really hard to see on camera @_@ but its really a nice milky pink!|
|a pinky muah♥|
|and I was playing dress up..so I used pinky tint here and cherry later on~|
|Reminds me of how I use to tint my lips with orange popsicles =D|
|am I blinding you? XD|
I can't really say which one is my absolute favorite, but I use pinky tint A LOT. Also they look good combined together too so =D!! It's a bit pricey at 13.00 something~but I think it's worth it because it's much better then some of those brand names at Sephora!!
One last thing~ In case you guys were wondering what lip gloss I'm wearing on top of cherry tint & orange tint...I'm using Korres Cherry Gloss in "Fuchsia" & Vincent Longo Virgin-Lux Lip Gloss in "Take Off" These two really enhances the color of the tints even more =] That's why I used them for my photos!
|Yummy smelling gloss that's non sticky and quite natural♥|
|Take off♥ awesome gloss|
