After being really disappointed with the Benetint, I was on a hunt for a better performing watery red tint. I came across this Tony Moly tint and decided to pick it up because it was very inexpensive and it claimed to be one of the best sellers! This post is for Anna, who was curious to know my thoughts about this product! ♡
There is quite a lot of lip product inside and considering that you only need to dab a few dots onto your lips, this means that it will last quite a long time! Something that I’m obsessed with is the scent. It smells identical to artificial grape candy and it is so delicious!
Left: bare lips; Middle: one layer; Right: two layers, wut is happening o_o
The sad part is I really did not enjoy this lip tint at all. =( What I found is that it doesn’t apply very evenly, it settles into the centre of the lips and creates a gradient lip look. After applying a few layers, I also noticed that it started to powder and flake up as you can see in the picture. It was really weird, I’ve never had an experience like that before! It was beautifully pigmented in the centre of my lips but everywhere else was just patchy and really unattractive. It was settling into my lip lines and was extremely blotchy. This happened only less than a minute after I applied it!
The only use I have for this lip tint is layering. I will continue to use it just because I don’t want to waste it but I either have to use it as a base or put it over the top of another lip product. By itself, it is just too unflattering. My final thought is I highly do not recommend you pick this lip product up!
