Hello people of the internet! I’m back —- temporarily from the depths of hell AKA Hong Kong DSE exams. It’s been a tense and dull month for me as I spend my days cooped up revising and the only thing that cheered me up is looking at makeup. But since I have a couple more days before all my exams end, *Silent fist pump* I thought why not put out a review since it’s been so long?
So today, I’m going to be reviewing Tony Moly’s Lip tone get it tint in two shades.
Product Name: Tony Moly Lip Tone Get It Tint
Shades in Total: 6 shades. The ones I got are in no.3 Play Orange and no. 6 Dark Night.
Packaging: It looks like a nail polish with a cap for security and to prevent any chances of the tint leaking out which I like. Inside is a short doe-foot applicator.
Price I got it for: HKD55
Scent: Sickeningly sweet
Here are some swatches.
This is how they looked on my lips. I took these pictures during the winter time and I have already put lip balm on my lips but to no avail, my lips still look dry.
First off is the shade No. 03 Play Orange. This shades is a vivid orange on swatch but on the lips it looks more red. The first picture is the after the application, the second is after a 3 hour wear and the third is a 5 hour wear.
The second shade No.06 Dark Night is just a darker shade. Again the first picture is the application the second is after a 3 hour wear and the third is after 5 hours from left to right.
Performance: First, I’m going to be talking about the texture of the tint. Because it’s a tint, I naturally assumed that it would be very liquid, however upon application, it’s a bit gel like but with a thin consistency and during application, it would apply streaky on my lips.
Now, you may be wondering why my lips look horrible. Well, when I applied the tint, I applied it to the whole lips and not just the inner rim of my mouth because I wanted my whole lips to be tinted but I found that over time, the tint looks extremely patchy on my lips and clung on to some parts while other parts faded after hours. I hated it. I looked like I was mugged by someone or was sick. So people with really dry lips, I wouldn’t really recommend this to you.
The only pro that I can say about this is that the tint is long lasting. The swatch on my hand lasted for more than 5 hours. Other than that, I didn’t really like this tint.
I was never actually a tint-type of person, however, I do like the convenience of tints sometimes and they do not need constant reapplication like regular lipsticks do but this tint didn’t do well for me. So it’s a NO from me.
