Tints are a staple for me.
They're perfect for that everyday no-makeup-makeup look.
They stay longer compared to other lipsticks even while swimming so they're perfect for the beach.
I usually use a liptint underneath my lipstick too just so I'll still have a bit of lip color left even when the lipstick has faded.
They're a must-have for beauty-junkie foodies! I always wear a good lip tint when eating out.
They look natural on your cheeks and lasts a long time. I haven't even finished my Ever Bilena Lip and Cheek Tint yet even if I use it A LOT.
Tints are usually priced as much as normal lipsticks too but are 2-in-1 products. Talk about value for your money.
Here's another tint that made it to my little collection:
LIOELE Blooming Pop Pinky Tint
"It's a soft and moisturizing lotion type of lovely pinky tint which has natural color and lasts for a long time and presents the pure look without spots." -written on the box
LIOELE Blooming Pop Pinky Tint is housed in an opaque pink glass bottle with a brush that looks like a nail polish brush, but softer. I'm surprised that some people find this odd. I owned a lip tint in the past that had the same brush and I think it just makes for an easy application.
While I first wished the product is the same color as the bottle, it has an almost neon pink color instead. However how it would look on your skin/lip depends on your complexion and lip pigmentation. On my skin, it takes on the appearance of a nice natural flush. I usually prefer peach or orangey colors on my cheeks for everyday. My previous cheek tint was berry red in color but it was a transparent liquid so it was easy to blend. I was skeptical of Lioele Blooming Pop Pinky Tint because it is a milky, translucent/opaque liquid. But I noticed it is able to adjust to my complexion. It does the same thing on my lips. While upon application, it has a milky, pink color, it then transforms into a hot pink that suits me. You'll see in the swatches later.
Texture and Feel
It has the same consistency as a runny lotion. That said, it's not as drying as other tints. I have very dry and chappy lips but I can wear this for a few hours without my lips cracking. I usually wear a colorless lip balm over it(not under) though just to make sure.
I just have one issue about how it feels on my lips. I don't know why, but it has a slight numbing effect. If I accidentally (or intentionally, I had to try it for review purposes) lick my lips while the product hasn't settled yet, I get the same numbing sensation on my tongue. It bothered me at first. It might be an allergic reaction as I'm mildly allergic to a lot of things. But like other things that I'm mildly allergic to(like shrimps and crabs, but I still eat shrimps and crabs), I still continued to patronize it and it doesn't bother me anymore.
Smell and Taste
Smell is akin to cherry and is tasteless! That's the part I love best. Although because of the strong cherry scent, you'd think that you're also tasting cherry.
Lasts for a good number of hours on my cheeks. I usually don't bother to reapply. I rarely reapply on my lips too and if I do, I probably only have to once. Twice, if it's a long day.
Blending and Pigmentation
Lioele Blooming Pop Pinky Tint is not as pigmented as other tints I encountered. This has it's disadvantages and advantages. For one, you have to apply more of the product for the color to show. This is in comparison to other tints that tend to be really pigmented of course. On the other hand, I find that it's easier for me to have that natural flush because I can start with a small amount of color and just build it up. But I have to be careful to blend the color right after applying them, before it is absorbed by my skin . Once it seeps to the skin, it becomes harder to blend.
not-so-bare lips. I just erased a lipstick I was wearing before taking this picture.
with LIOELE Blooming Pop Pinky Tint
See? It's kinda hot-pink. I do have, dry pigmented lips, especially my upper lip. My roommate commented once(well, six years ago before I discovered lip balm) that I look like a smoker.
LIOELE Blooming Pop Pinky Tint is still milky in color.
LIOELE Blooming Pop Pinky Tint starts turning into a deeper pink.
I apply it on my cheeks like this.
Sorry for the uber-dewy, almost-oily looking foundation. I was wearing one with SPF 50 this time. I apply my cheek tint before setting my foundation. A cheek-tint is liquid so it blends easier with liquid foundation. Whenever I try applying my cheek tint after power foundation, it has the tendency to appear cakey.

packaging is mostly in Korean! no big deal, but I wish they update it for the international market.
Lioele Blooming Pop Pinky Tint earns a place in my make-up bag. I love it A LOT!
I highly recommend it. It makes a nice gift too because of the super cute packaging.
As for whether I'll repurchase, I'll probably try other tints in the market first.
Lioele Blooming Pop Tint also comes in cherry tint and orange tint. I want to get orange tint next!
Where to purchase?
Lioele products are hard to come by in the Philippines.
You can check out these websites though
