I'm in love with lip tints. I don't think I could ever live without one. It was probably one of the first makeup products I owned, so it has a special place in my kikay heart. That said, I always get intrigued whenever there's a new brand out.
As I was whiling away my time on the internet (who doesn't, right?), I stumbled upon a lip tint that seemed to be everywhere: Romand Juicy Lasting Tint. I first saw it from Anna Cay. In her YouTube video, she was getting ready in her car en route to an event, and I instantly got sold when I saw how the product looked on her lips.
Romand Juicy Lasting Tints come in seven shades: Juicy Oh!, Ruby Red, Summer Scent, Dragon Pink, Peach Me, Figfig, and Jujube. All colors are based on fruits and their corresponding hues.
I researched and read rave reviews about it, and I had to find out if it was really worth the hype. I got Summer Scent, which has a watermelon fragrance and a bright magenta hue with warm undertones. Read on to see my findings:
It has a juicy-looking finish.
Unlike most lip tints, the Romand Juicy Lasting Tint has a gel-like finish, which makes your pout appear, well, juicy.
It smells really yummy.
It was inspired by the watermelon fruit, and its scent reminded me of the lip balms I used when I was still a student.
The color payoff is impressive.
My lips were coated in bright magenta with just a single layer of the tint. I wore this overnight, and it was still there when I woke up.
While its gel formula won't survive after eating or drinking, it will never dry out your pout.
It's great for a blurred lip or popsicle-stained look.
Its spreadable texture is great for the K-beauty-approved looks: Blurred and popsicle-stained pouts!
It gives a natural-looking flush.
A light dab on the cheeks creates the prettiest just-pinched look. Its lightweight gel formula won't ever feel sticky on the skin.
Our verdict: If you're a K-beauty fan and won't mind doing touchups after eating, go ahead and try it!
