The short of the long is this: HG product. My fave lip tint of all time. I chanced upon this by pure serendipity, and I thank the heavens I decided to buy one, mainly because it was cheap, and I'm a sucker for red lip products. My first Ink Velvet is #1, and as soon as I applied it, I was in love. It's highly pigmented, long-lasting, comfortable on the lips, very reasonably priced--everything I want in a lip product. I remove it by using either a micellar wipe or just plain baby wipes. I now own the other red colors #9 & #15, as well as #6. I find I reach for them more than any other lip products I own, they're that good!

I have it in a few shades but the shade girlish red rly dried out my lips and gave me really painful chapped lips that i've never had and experienced with the other shAdes i got.

I have the shade #1 Pink Ivory. This is my first foray into cushion foundations, and I am very late to the game, I know. I mainly wanted something for the summer that had a high SPF that I could take with me for touchups. This has a SPF 50 PA+++ sunscreen, which I was pretty excited about. The shade range is not all that impressive, but since the coverage is light to buildable, I wasn't all that worried. There's a mint version as well, which I believe is meant to help control acne and sebum production. This product comes in a matte plastic baby pink compact that is sturdy without being too heavy or bulky, and the flap that separates the foundation from the applicator is very secure so that I don't have to worry about it leaking in my bag. It also has a nice mirror, which again is nice for touchups. As I said, the coverage is buildable, but it does start out very light. I do find the undertone to be very pink, so if you're quite warm this might not be the best option for you. One selling point of this product is that it is meant to be long-lasting, and I do find that the wear time is pretty good providing that I don't sweat. When it does fade it doesn't break down and look cakey, but instead just sort of gracefully vanishes. It does have a strong sunscreen scent that I personally don't mind, but some who are sensitive might not like this. Overall, I think this is a good product for traveling or on-the-go application that doesn't need to be touched up every hour or two.

Asian makeup always has the cutest packaging, but I often find myself less than impressed with the formula (not always!). Sadly, this one didn't stand out of the bunch either.I got #5 - Lively Lavender and, sure enough, it's a bold lavender shade. If it stayed true to the color fresh out of the tube, I would hesitate to recommend this for anyone except like NW -100 or something, lol. Luckily, this pastel lavender dries down darker and warmer after about 10 minutes so it is wearable for a wider range of people than I had first assumed (still not a very wide range, to be honest: pastel lavender blush is hard to pull off). Also, since it has a rather strong white base, it wouldn't work on very olive tones; I'm just barely olive and it still borders on looking "off" on me.The formula is thick and not quite a full-on moussey texture, but it's almost there. As a result, I found it difficult to spread this evenly on the cheeks. And the cushion applicator is more just for laying the product down, not for blending, so fingers/brush are optimal. And I could see a clear divide where the blush ends, although it's less noticeable over time as the product melds into the skin. I've had much better results with other cream blushes. At the very least, I'd say this product is one of the most pigmented blushes I've owned among the ones from Korean beauty brands. The powder blushes I have don't even come close to the level of pigmentation as this cream blush. Still, even though this color is cute and unique, I wouldn't buy this product again.

Lasts for a long time compared to other tints that I've used before and the Mandarine colour is super pretty and makes me look so youthful and cheery! Price is around the average price of lip tint too! Really good product overall
