PRODUCT: Liptone Get It Tint #5 All-Night Red
COMPANY: TONY MOLY
COST: ~7,000 WON ($7)
DESCRIPTION: This is one red in a series of color options in Tony Moly's immensely popular long-lasting lip tints.
EXPERIENCE: This product has really opened my eyes to the potential of a good lip tint! This lip product doesn't feel like anything and absorbs really rapidly. whatever it touches it will stain red, with little spreading power, so I had to take more time to make sure it covered every spot of lip, as any space missed would create a noticeable contrast. This is a very different tactic for me, as I typically apply a smudge of lip product to the inner portions of upper and lower lips and then gently smear and smooch to get a subtle, natural look that, most importantly, only takes a few seconds to apply. However, with this one I had to apply carefully to the outer lip edges and take time to not miss a spot.
I wore this out to dinner and a movie, where I was constantly eating, drinking and rubbing my lips with napkins. But behold--the color remained! After about 5 hours it lost a bit of its brightness but this stuff does not come off! it's really quite amazing. Because it is so bright and long-lasting this is probably one I'll save for special occasions. (Also I find it a tad bit alarming how effective it is, feeling like its seems and permanently binds to my lip cells!)
SMELL: Very lightly fragrant
TEXTURE: The tiniest bit drying
YAY OR NAY: Yay, for being an incredibly effective long-lasting lip color. There are additional colors you can see here and another "HD" line you can read about here.
