I want to talk about the Etude House Sweet Cherry Tint (P495), a buttery smooth lipstick that promises a long-wearing stain. This is the love child of the hydrating Dear My Essence in Lips-talk and intense Sugar Tint Balm! Indeed, it leaves a soft stain for 5-6 hours even after eating and keeps my lips in top shape. With it I don't feel the need to retouch - very important when I'm out traveling or playing sports. I'm at an age when I just really want my makeup to be comfortable.Read More
How do you feel about tints? I love them on my lips since they offer long-lasting color, but the trouble usually starts when I try to wear them on my cheeks. They're fine if I'm not wearing any other face makeup underneath. On top of powder, well, now that's a challenge! I find it difficult to blend tints after face makeup without messing up what's below.
And that's why I don't use tints. Still, when I got the Benefit Cha Cha Tint (P1,800), I forgot all my reservations about using lip and cheek tints. Benefit promises a "juicy mango flush" that will "have you looking deliciously sun-kissed from cabana to coladas". How can you say no? HOW?
The short of it is that I love it, especially the color. I still do need to work on some application tricks though, but I'll share a few later on in the post. Let's start, shall we?
What I love about the product
- Hands down, Cha Cha tint provides a flush to die for. It's a vibrant, coral-mango shade that will look great on light-medium to dark skin tones.
- Stays put all day. Rain, sweat, oil, you don't have to worry about it. It's so long-lasting you will have a bit of trouble taking it off at the end of the day (you'll need a makeup remover).
