What is a Lip Tint?

Lip tints are formulated for a long-lasting colour that won’t even smudge during the meal. They are lightweight and a perfect go-to lippy that is amazingly easy to use. Plus, it is hydrating due to its watery consistency! The difference between lip tints and lip stains can be quite confusing, but actually, both of them belong to a similar category. Lip tints are absorbed into the skin, unlike lipsticks. Since they form a layer on the surface of your lips, it can sometimes result in a cracked lip look. Besides that, lip tints come in forms such as oil, water, cream, and gel! Although, watery lip tints are usually the go-to for most people!

Lip Tint Vs Lip Stain

Trust us when we say that there is definitely a difference between a lip tint and a lip stain! While lip tints offer a more natural-looking wash of colour compared to lip stains. Lip tints are actually much sheerer and smudge easily onto your lips for long-lasting results! Giving your lips an irresistible natural tint. Lip stains on the other hand, quite literally stain your lips. The colour will actually bleed into your tissue and boy do they last longer than lip tints! That’s right, if you are planning to stain your lips, there can be no room for error! They are much brighter and pigmented, making them hard to remove. One small smudge when applying could lead to a whole day’s worth of unwanted attention!

How to Use Korean Lip Tints?

Although it is fairly easy to use, it is important that you prep your lips beforehand. Just follow these steps and you’re good to go!

  1. Exfoliate and exfoliate! Nothing can beat a good exfoliation that removes dead skin cells. This will prevent dry lips and helps to make the lip tints more long-lasting.
  2. Use a lip balm to moisturize your lips.
  3. Then, apply the lip tint in the center of the lips and press your lips to diffuse it evenly for a classic gradient look. If you’re going for a bolder look, you can apply the lip tint using the applicator to shape and fill your lips. Besides, you can even opt for a coat of lip gloss for extra hydration.
  4. Afterward, use a cotton swab or lip brush to blend the lip tint for long-lasting wear.
