PRODUCT: Tomato Cool Jelly Tint
COST: ~6,000 WON ($6)
DESCRIPTION: South Korean beauty shops offer a LOT of lip products, many claiming to be supremely long-lasting. This supposedly tomato-based product is one such item.
EXPERIENCE: This is shaping up to be one of my favorite lip products from South Korea. Not quite a moisturizer, not quite a gloss and not quite a lipstick either, strangely enough. It is more of a water-based stain that sinks into the lip tissue to give a nice natural bit of long-lasting color. Intriguing indeed.
INGREDIENT ANALYSIS: I could not find an ingredient list unfortunately.
YAY OR NAY: Yay, for being a nice, casual lip color that is easy to apply, looks natural and doesn't feel heavy or caked.
LINK: Amazon (pricier than in Korea)
