7 Reasons to Wear Lip Tint Instead of Lipstick

Lipstick is arguably the most classic makeup product. From biting their lips way-back when to the days of rouge to today’s countless options, it has always been all about the lips in a way, really. Nothing quite makes a statement like a bold red lip- it is every woman’s secret weapon! Nothing beats it…that is aside from the constant struggle to keep it on all night! Enter lip tint.

The lip tint has been an integral part of the Korean makeup routine for years and years. It has and will always be their most sought-after lip product. While we’ve been faffing around with liquid lipsticks and lip glosses, they’ve got it all figured out. Lip tints are a lipstick lover’s savior, and here are all the reasons why you need to make the transition ASAP.

  1. Easy Peasy

Is anything as easy to apply as a lip tint? We want proof! Lip tints require zero focus, zero concentration and zero reflective surfaces! You can easily smoothly pop on a lip tint without looking in the mirror and get a perfect application. They apply so easily and evenly because of their lightweight formula and less concentrated pigmentation!

  1. Longevity

Possibly the most amazing reason to wear a lip tint is the longevity. We’re pretty sure it is one of the (if not the) most long wearing lip product. A lip tint is going to do just what it says; tint your lips, and that tint isn’t going anywhere. It depends on the formula you go for, but most lip tints can last you absolutely all night and not go anywhere!

  1. Smooth Fade

Once your everlasting lip tint decides to finally gradually fade away, it does so gracefully! We all know of the dreaded ring around our lips as whatever lip product fades. SO embarrassing! Well, a lip tint fades much more smoothly. You’re left with a gradual fade of overall color rather than it fading in certain patches. That’s what makes it such a great option for events!

  1. Zero Texture

Don’t get us wrong, we love a good liquid lipstick or lip gloss. However, some issues come with both of them. You either end up with super dry cracking lips or a sticky mess that your hair keeps getting caught in. With a lip tint it dries down entirely but feels like nothing is on. It simply tints your lips and you cannot feel it at all!

  1. Kiss-Proof

Let’s not all pretend this isn’t taken into serious consideration with every lip product! Who wants their lips to end up all over their kissing partner’s- not a cute look. As we mentioned in the last reason, lip tints completely settle on your lips. This makes them transfer-proof. No lip color ending up on your glass, your cutlery, or your partner’s soft lips!

  1. Natural & Effortless

The reason why lip tints are such a Korean favorite is that it fits in with their entire aesthetic. Korean makeup is all about looking youthful, fresh and natural. Lip tints look super natural, especially if you use a toned down color. People won’t even be able to tell you have anything on your lips. It will look like that’s just your natural lip color!

  1. Teeth-Check

Nothing is quite as upsetting as heading to the ladies room to realize your bright red lip has made a home for itself all across your teeth. Cringe! The inevitable lipstick on teeth can be seriously annoying. The transfer-proof quality of a lip tint means you will never ever have to deal with that! There is absolutely no way for your tint to end up on your teeth- it’s got you covered, not your teeth!
