Have you ever wondered how Korean celebrities’ lips look so natural despite the colors they use? Well, lip tints are the reason why.
So how are lip tints different from your regular lip colors or lipstick? Lip tints are lighter in consistency than lipsticks. While lipsticks are usually waxy type, a lip tint is mostly water based. Also, lip tints adhere better and stay longer on the lips.
One thing you’d love about a lip tint is that it allows you to do various applications. For one, the famous gradient lips that you see from Korean celebrities in Kdrama and Kpop is perfectly achievable with a lip tint. On the other hand, if gradient lips are not your type then full lip color application is still possible.
What you need to know first is that not all lip tints are completely water type. They can be in gel type, oil type, cream type and sometimes in a stick balm type. However, they still are as effective as the other.
