I was pretty disappointed with this product, I found that if my lips are dry it highlights the dry areas making them look drier/flakier than they actually are. I wanted this to be moisturising and a good tint.
The colour, however, I do like. I think it looks slightly different on different skin tones as on my fair/pinkish skin it has some orangey tones as well as pink/red. I just wish it was more moisturising.
The smell, I also like, but I like the smell of most Lush products. The packaging I also have an issue with, the metal box became very dented and disfigured with just daily carrying in my bag, now its hard to screw/unscrew the lid. I can see that Lush are trying to cut down on plastic packaging though, and respect that, I just feel that this could be better quality.
Overall, this is a product that I haven't stopped using but I think that once I run out I probably won't repurchase due to how dry it makes my lips look.
This is my first Lush lip tint i have bought, and i am very happy with the product, it looks amazing on but the smell is so so bad.....It smells like off playdoh. I am not sure if i would buy this again as i do not like the smell of it at all but i love how it looks. The packaging is a little fiddley but overall very nice.
-Goes on easily
-Smells like old soap
-Doesnt last long
-Horrible after a couple hours
You all know it can be doubled as cheek tint. I am gonna review both uses:-
1. Lip tint- The best thing about it is that it appears natural. You can build the color too as per your choice. The staying power is 4-5 hours without meals and even if u eat, it will wear off little bit but still leave a pretty stain on your lips. What I mean is your lips will not go bare for atleast 6-7 hrs after applying it. Just make sure your lips are exfoliated and moisturised properly. Its neither drying nor moisturising. And yes about the smell, I personally dont like it but it doesnt matter much as it doesnt linger for more than a minute and also its tasteless for me which I absolutely love :)
2. Cheek tint- again, appears natural on the cheeks but the biggest disadvantage about the cheek usage is that it doesnt last. It will totally wear off within 2-3 hrs. I personally dont wear any makeup which isnt long lasting.
Overall, it is totally worthwhile for me and I will definetely repurchase just for the lips :)
This is a great little product. Honestly, I had low expectations. I bought it because I loved the scent and I love LUSH's masks. To me it smells like cinnamon/vanilla frosting. Very nice! THIS IS NOT A LIP BALM, IT IS A LIP TINT. In my opinion, it's more a lip stain. This stuff really stays on. It has a ton of pigment and is very buildable. It can also double as a cheek stain. I would repurchase.
I love this as a lip and cheek stain!
The scent is exactly like butter menthols in the pot, but when on lips it smells like apple pie!
Super buildable, you can have a natural pink tint if you use just a little, or a super pigmented red if you build over it.
It doesn't dry out the lips, however you do need a balm
Or gloss over the top if you want any kind of shine. Lost one lippie for not being moisturizing (but not drying).
So, here's the deal with this product. If you use it on your lips its very very bright, not my cup of tea. However, this is a PERFECT cheek tint. Its a lovely pink-red and it looks just fabulous as a cheek tint without making you LOOK like you're wearing blush/cheek tint. Also, remember that a little goes a long way. I tap my finger in it a few times and I apply it straight to my cheeks and it's a perfect amount.
I love this lip tint. It's a gorgeous, vibrant color that can be used as a cheek and lip stain (I use it for both). A lot of people seem to dislike the scent but I personally love it so I guess it's a matter of taste. It's a little strong but doesn't linger for too long. The only complaint is that it's a little drying. I usually put on a lip balm b before, apply the lip tint, then dab a bit more lip balm over it (dab! rubbing will make the color go away). But nonetheless this is a super pretty and versatile lip tint!
Okay - I must be in the minority here. I received this is a swap - was so excited to finally get to try a "Lush" product. Sadly, the smell of mine is so horrid - I haven't even been able to try it on my lips. Maybe mine was a bad batch but this is so bad - I wouldn't even be able to give it away in a RAOK.....It will have to go into the trash. :-(
I really do like this! Very pretty red lip tint, smells like apples,chocolate and yummynes (but not over welming) very subtle scent. The packaging is a bit of a pain to twist of and its a lil pricey for the amount (so i thought...) but it lasts for ages! And ive used it as a cream blush before! its like solid benetint! Definately repurchase this! <3 continued >>
