If you’ve been to Korea, you might have seen Aritaum stores in almost every district you went. Aritaum is AMOREPACIFIC’s store for selling products from their brands (e.g. Mamonde, LANEIGE), but besides that, Aritaum is also its own brand! I would say that Aritaum offers more affordably-priced products, on about the same level as Etude House and Innisfree, as compared to higher-end brands like Sulhwasoo and IOPE.
Highly pigmented long-lasting lip tint stick.
Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 12 (Lazada)
Don’t all the colours look gorgeous? I think it’s a tad limited, but the ones available are exactly the ones I would pick anyway haha. I bought the shade #11 Pink Cinnamon. I’m no fan of cinnamon to be honest, but thankfully this lip tint didn’t taste anything like it.
This may be a lip tint, but it’s not quite the same as the other lip tints I’ve introduced, such as the Innisfree Eco flower Tint. It applies and feels more like a gloss, but is way more pigmented and long-lasting.
Pink Cinnamon is a really beautiful dusty rose, though I have no idea why it’s called Pink Cinnamon. The colour payoff is really high for a lip tint – all it takes is one swipe for sufficient colour. It also feels comfortable on my lips, and not uncomfortably sticky as some glosses tend to be.
The staying power is not as fantastic as I would like it to be, coming from a tint. The product description promises that it will be long-lasting, but it didn’t last me through a pizza party. Sometimes, I still have remnants of lipstick left when I clean my lips with makeup removal at the end of the day, but there was none left at all with this product.
I love how comfortable and good this lip tint looks. It doesn’t look quite as creamy as the official photo may promise to be, but the colour payoff is definitely capable of achieving the same result.
I think its price is pretty agreeable, and it was actually way cheaper when I bought it in Korea because of a 1+1 sale. I haven’t tried to buy Aritaum in Singapore, but if you’re in Korea, I would definitely recommend buying this if you happen to visit an Aritaum store (chances of that happening are pretty high anyway).
The only issue I have with this product is the fact that it’s not as long-lasting as expected. I can get really lazy about reapplying my makeup, and even more so if I have to do it every time I eat and drink (which happens to be pretty often, sadly). I think this would be nice to wear if you’re out for a short meeting or photoshoot, but not for, say, an important meal appointment.
