Today I’ll be reviewing the new Babyface Oil Drop Tint from It’s Skin!
This lip tint currently comes in 3 colours; red, pink and orange. I picked up the red tint from my nearest It’s Skin to give it a try and tell you what I thought about it!
Oil tints are meant to be slightly more moisturisng than normal lip tints. I often complain that the only flaw of lip tints is that they are extremely drying. I hate having chapped lips and with it being winter in Korea this happens A LOT!
The Babyface Oil Drop Tint was better than other lip tints in this department. My lips didn’t feel as chapped after using it, which made me super happy. In addition the colour lasted a long time, not as long as the Banila Co. Lip Tint, but after several hours you could still tell I had used tint which I was loving.
The only downfall of this tint is that after several hours the tint pooled in the lines of my lips which caused a strange affect. The colour remained on my lips, but this pooling caused the lines in my lips to be an obvious deep red in comparison! It did look a little strange, which might be perfect for Halloween…but not quite normal for an ordinary day, haha. I think the only way to avoid this affect is to keep applying the tint, but that is too demanding for me and I’m scared the tint will just make the lines a deeper and deeper red.
A great, non-drying lip tint, which I would recommend to people that are okay with touching up often to avoid those dark lip lines.
That is why I would give this lip tint 4 stars!
EDIT- given this lip tint several more attempts and it has been getting worse and worse… it is not only going in the ceases of my lips but also darkening the chapped part of my lips… I had a meeting with my boyfriend’s family a day after I used the lip and my lips looked awful.
Demoting this from 4 stars to 0 stars and will be throwing out my lip tint.
Really unhappy with the this tint.
Now for my second lip tint review of today after my Missha Water Full Lip Tint; Banila Co. Two Kisses Dual Tint.
This was recommended on a YouTube beauty account (will be disclosing later 😉 ) and I have managed to become obsessed with this particular lip tint.
I received it for Christmas and it is one of my favorite lip tints now.
There are 4 shades: red, orange, pale orange and pink. These colors are SUPER neon and give a VERY pigmented look. If you don’t like a vibrant colour on your lips then this tint is not for you.
I have the pink colour and as I say this colour is super bright; but it lasts a long time! Perfect for me who always forgets to touch up throughout the day.
There is an emulsion side and a gel side. The emulsion side gives a faint colour which is often used if you want an ombre lip style. The gel side is the lip tint, this can be used in the center for the ombre look or used like normal tint for a complete colour look.
The tint is slightly drying, but I think the only thing that isn’t drying my lips these days is sensitive lip balms! >.<
Therefore I would give this 5 STARS, even thought it is slightly drying the longevity of the tint is a clear winner for me.
Before I came to Korea I never really used lip tints. I didn’t really understand what they did and I had only heard of Benefit lip tint from my sister.
But in Korea you see A LOT of women with brightly coloured lips and this is because of lip tints. Here they seem to be a staple in many women’s daily make-up choice, with even the older elementary school students trying them out. (Some of my 6th grade students got scolded for trying them out and coming to school with super pink lips!)
Lip tints come in lots of different colors and every beauty company has their own version!
One I have tried and used more than I expected is Missha Water Full Lip Tint.
I have fallen in love with the Cherry Coke color and use it as my go-to red tint!
The tint goes on perfectly, however it does tend to fade after a couple of hours so be sure to put it in your bag for touch-ups.
The other problem I find is that it is drying on my lips, however I usually put my lip tint on and then put my lip balm on top.
I would give this product 4 stars out 5. One of my favorite tints, BUT too drying to get the coveted 5 stars.
