For the previous month, I have been dwelling a lie. Every time somebody requested me what my favourite product for lips is, I might inform them no matter involves thoughts. (As a magnificence editor, this can be a every day prevalence.) Typically, I blurt out the Milk Make-up Lip Coloration in Wavey; different instances, it is the Clarins Water Lip Stain in Purple Water. Each are wonderful, however the truth of the matter is that my favourite lip product in the mean time is the brand-new Innisfree Vivid Creamy Tint. Nevertheless, I have been utilizing it in secret just because I have never been in a position to inform anybody about it till right this moment. However now dozen attractive shades of my new Okay-beauty fave are formally launching, I can formally stay my reality.
Again in July, I caught New York Metropolis-based make-up artist Katie Jane Hughes working with these new Innisfree lip merchandise on set. After seeing it on fashions and swatching it on my hand, I’ll or could not have begged Okay-beauty model Innisfree to let me experiment with them earlier than they launched within the U.S. Daily since I received my arms on a pair shades of the Vivid Creamy Tints, they have been a staple in my make-up routine. The rationale I preserve going again to them is as a result of they undergo two phases: high-shine gloss and long-lasting tint.
Resulting from its distinctive method, the Vivid Creamy Tint evolves with put on. Its preliminary texture is not like some other lip product I’ve used earlier than. Neither gloss nor balm matches as much as it. The closest comparability I can provide you with is the Clarins On the spot Mild Lip Consolation Oil. Each are like coating your lips in Jell-O. I swear that is factor as a result of just like the childhood gelatin snack, the Vivid Creamy Tint is not sticky in any respect however nonetheless reflective and glassy like a gloss. Plus, it has a enjoyable, fruity scent. Not like the Clarins On the spot Mild Lip Consolation Oil, which provides lips the faintest wash of shade, the Vivid Creamy Tint has the opacity of a liquid lipstick.
Section two of the Vivid Creamy Tint commences after your second cup of espresso — it is not fully transfer-proof, however the glossiness will face up to your first. All bets are off together with your subsequent iced mocha, although. The shine will begin carrying off, however a long-lasting lip stain will likely be left behind. (At that time, you will not depart a mark in your cup, that means you may kiss whoever you need with out forsaking proof.) It even outlasts triple-cleansing, together with two rounds of Banila Co Clear It Zero Authentic Cleaning Balm. Here is proof:
The Utility Approach
You may bypass the gloss part completely and go straight for the tint by dabbing the product on the middle of your lips and mixing it outward together with your finger. This methodology will enable you to obtain the favored blurred lip look.
My favourite method to apply the Vivid Creamy Tint is impressed by Okay-pop group Seventeen. Its members sometimes focus shade and glossiness on the middle of their lips. To recreate the look, I solely swipe the product onto the middle of my lips. Then, I smack my lips collectively a pair time to assist unfold the colour out a bit however nonetheless let it have its shine second. With this system, you do not have to fret about making use of it exactly. I typically put on it throughout my lips, too, for a bolder vibe.
The Shade Choice
So far as lip tints go, Innisfree’s latest one has a fairly in depth shade vary. You would go as mild as a delicate peach or as darkish as a burgundy. There are additionally a number of pinks and reds in between. My favorites are 9, which is a blue-toned maroon, and 11, which is a wealthy raspberry that jogs my memory of the hue a number of members of Seventeen wore in “Oh My”. (I additionally caught S.Coups with the same shade backstage at KCON LA.)
On prime of all this, the Innisfree Vivid Creamy Tint is $9. You may store all 12 shades now on us.innisfree.com.
