Lip tints are definitely one of the best lip products you can ever get, and they’ve definitely become an essential in any beauty lovers’ makeup collection. Long-lasting colour, shiny gloss, and comfortable application – what’s there not to love about lip tints?
New to lip tints and not sure what’s hot? Check out our recommendations of the best lip tints that you should add to your makeup pouch right now!
1. A’PIEU WATER LIGHT TINT
Infused with floral and fruit extracts to keep your lips moist and nourished, this tint adheres smoothly so that a nice colour stays on throughout the day. Shade RD03, in particular, has been frequently touted by beauty bloggers as a perfect dupe for Yves Saint Laurent’s Vinyl Cream Lip Stain #407, so you know that this product is definitely worth trying!
2. BENEFIT BENETINT CHEEK & LIP STAIN
Benefit’s rose-tinted lip tint is a holy grail for many beauty lovers, thanks to its kiss-proof and smudge-proof formula. You can easily blend it with your fingers, and it has a buildable texture so that you can have your lips (and cheeks) looking gorgeous with a radiant flush.
Benefit Benetint Cheek & Lip Stain retails in all Sephora stores and Sephora.sg at SGD21.
3. ETUDE HOUSE DEAR DARLING WATER GEL LIP TINT
If you’re looking to create a gradient lip, you’d definitely want to buy this lip tint from Etude House. This super-pigmented tint is touted as a long-time favourite among Korean women. To add to its accolades, the Dear Darling Water Gel Lip Tint was awarded the 2017 Soko Glam Best of K-beauty Award winner.
In a K-Beauty world dominated by lip tints, to be recognized as one of the best tints in the market is truly an amazing feat. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s one of the most affordable lip tints on this list. Who says good quality must come with an expensive price tag?
Etude House Dear Darling Water Gel Lip Tint retails in all Etude House stores and Lazada at SGD8.90.
4. YSL BEAUTY ROUGE PUR COUTURE VERNIS A LEVRES
YSL Beauty Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres combines the texture and shine of a gloss with the long-wear of a stain for a unique lip product. Boasting a lightweight texture that immediately melts onto lips and does not feel sticky at all, you’ll be sure to have perfect, glossy lips no matter how many snacks you munch on.
YSL Beauty Rouge Pur Couture Vernis A Levres retails in all YSL stores and Tangs at SGD52.
5. PERIPERA INK THE AIRY VELVET
Peripera has been established as one of the best lip tint brands since their gamechanging watery lip tint released many years ago. They’ve since released a range of tints in glossy and matte formulas in a variety of MLBB (my lips but better) shades.
Ink The Airy Velvet is one of Peripera’s latest additions to their tint products – a cream lip stain with a matte-like finish that is so lightweight, it applies and wears like air. It also contains cotton seed oil, green tea seed oil, and mango seed oil to keep your lips comfortably hydrated and perfectly tinted throughout the day.
