While I was browsing around on eBay looking for new products to try, I came across this lip tint bar and it completely caught by eye. The colour adjusts according to the temperature of your lips! Naturally I was interested to see what colour it would change into on my personal skin temperature so I bought it! =) There are only 3 shades available – #01 CC Cherry, #02 CC Orange and the one I picked up, #03 CC Pink. It is described as an innocent pink and that is probably the best way to describe it in the tube!
The lip tint itself contains mint water and marine collagen, which are ingredients that help moisturise and soften the lips all day. It comes in a retractable container and the packaging is quite cute with all the hot pink polka dots but there is only 2.4 grams of product! I really wished there was more inside considering how long the packaging is, it’s really misleading. =( In the picture, I twisted the product up to the maximum and it looks like there is not a lot at all!
The lip tint applies sheer but after building on the layers, it turns into a natural medium pink on me. It feels very moisturising and has a glossy look to it. It also smells really nice, exactly like strawberry candy! I love applying it because it smells so good!
The lasting power is quite good. After eating/drinking, it does leave a lighter pink stain but what happens is that I find that I end up with a lip line, like I’ve applied a darker lip liner around the edges of my lips. The camera doesn’t really pick this up though in the picture unfortunately. =( I don’t find it too hideous looking or anything but for some people, reapplication may be necessary. It also feels a little bit drying by now because all the moisture has been taken away, but this is an expected issue with glossy lip tints.
After eating/drinking! I had a non-greasy baguette and an apple =)
I am quite happy with this tint bar. It’s not a holy grail for me but it does perform quite well and lasts a decently long time. I also love how natural it looks on the lips and it just feels like I’m applying a tinted lip balm. This will be my go-to everyday natural lip for the time being!
