As most of you know I have a Korean lip product addiction so you can imagine I would probably be excited to receive this product, right? Well, to be honest I was really worried it would be the same as The Face Shop's Lovely Me:Ex Milky Tint in Baby Peach and unfortunately for darker skinned/pigmented girls like myself, they are basically the same product.
If you have lighter lips or skin, do read on!
You can buy it from Honest Skin for $6.29--

You can guess how well this is going to work on me...
3 layers of tint
- Milky tint is less drying that regular liquid tints
- Doesn't emphasize dry lines
- Does not show up at all on pigmented lips/cheeks
- Doesn't fix dry lines either
- Impossible to judge other characteristics without visible difference on my lips
I hate having to give bad reviews when something was sent to me for review, but as a truthful blogger I cannot tell a lie! I don't blame Honest Skin at all for sending me this--they had no idea that I already owned this same tint from another brand, and they didn't know that I have such dark/pigmented lips. If they had told me I would've asked for a different color, knowing this one wouldn't show up on me.
The formula is exactly the same as the Face Shop one. They're both light orange, milky in both appearance and feeling, and they don't dry out as quickly as other liquid tints do. My lips don't hurt when I use this, so that is indeed a plus, but it also doesn't make my chapped lips look much better after it starts to dry. When it dries it feels slightly tacky, but not too much.
If you have pigmented lips like me, I can assure you it won't show up--even with a lip primer it really won't work. If you are NC20 or above with yellow undertone this more than likely will not show up on your cheek as a stain. I applied 3 layers of the tint on my lips in the photo above and I have nothing to show for it in my pics.
If you are lighter skinned/lipped than me, I can see this being a very nice product for a "my lips but better look" but because this doesn't show up at all on me I can't comment on how evenly this applies nor how long the color will last. Sorry guys!
Rating: 1/5 would not recommend this color for darker lips or skin like mine :(
