I was strongly encouraged by a few people to buy this, having been told that many Youtubers swear by its value for money. I actually saw this product in A’PIEU’s retail store in Seoul and was this close to buying it. I changed my mind at the last minute… only to buy it on Shopee a few months later (true irony indeed).
A’PIEU Water Light Tint is infused with floral and fruit extracts to keep lips moist and nourished. The tint adheres smoothly, offering lips the moistness of water and the smoothness of oil at the same time.
Official Retail Price in Singapore: SGD 6.90 (Shopee)
There was only one shade available (RD03) by the Shopee seller whom I got this from, and it was on sale for $5.90 at that time, so I just went ahead with that shade. RD03 is a MLBB colour (think ‘dried roses’) that would definitely be my first choice if it were for a matte lipstick. I think for glossier. more ‘watery’ types of lip products, I would have preferred to buy a brighter shade like PK01 or CR01.
Two things about the lip tint that instantly impressed me: 1) glossiness 2) colour intensity. Just one layer of the application is enough, and it really does look like lip gloss but without the uncomfortable stickiness – in fact, it’s pretty hydrating! It actually looks very similar to the product shot above in the product description, which is really impressive. The colour is really good, but a little too intense for my liking because of how dark it is (I prefer lighter shades because dark shades don’t go well with my complexion).
Another plus point is that this lip tint tastes really good, like grape-flavoured candy! It also smells really sweet ~
As a tint, it fares generally well with regards to staying power and is able to last through at least one meal, with hints of colour still clearly visible on the lips, although it doesn’t look as glossy as it once was at the beginning.
Once you try it out, you’ll understand why this is highly recommended and so well-liked. Priced much lower than other lip tints but with the same intense colour payoff & staying power, this product is absolutely worth every single cent you pay.
This is one lip product that I’m definitely looking to repurchase in other shades. I don’t always strongly recommend products, but I confidently assure you that this is one affordable lip tint that you don’t want to miss out on.
