Discover the Next Generation of Lip Tints: Lightweight, Colorful, and Long-Lasting

The original lip tints gained popularity in Korea for their ability to create the perfect gradient lip, also known as the ombré lip. This lip look, favored by Korean celebrities such as Suzy, Krystal, and Taeyeon, features a brighter color on the inside of the lips that fades as it reaches the edges. The gradient lip offers a youthful and natural appeal, making it a favorite among Korean women.

But lip tints are not just about the gradient lip. They come in a variety of formulas and textures, each with its unique benefits. Let's explore the different types of lip tints and how to make the most out of them.

What is a Lip Tint?

Lip tints differ from traditional lipsticks and lip glosses because they have a liquid or gel base, enriched with pigments that stay on the lips long after the watery base has evaporated. This means lip tints won't budge and can last all day without the need for touch-ups or leaving marks on cups or glasses. Additionally, lip tints provide a more natural look while still offering juicy and long-lasting color.

Modern lip tints are not only highly pigmented but also infused with moisturizing ingredients to keep your lips soft and hydrated throughout the day. With their intense color payoff, a little goes a long way, ensuring your lip tint will last you for months.

The Different Types of Lip Tints

When it comes to lip tints, the options are infinite. Beauty companies continue to innovate and introduce new formulations and textures. Let's take a look at some of the popular types of lip tints available.

Liquid Lip Tints

The liquid lip tint is the most common and user-friendly option. Applying a gradient lip is as simple as swiping the wand along the inner edges of your lips and pressing them together a few times to blend the color. For a softer and more diffused look, apply the tint to a larger portion of your lips and press them together.

Don't be intimidated by the watery consistency of liquid lip tints. To make application easier, apply a lip balm or moisturizer beforehand. This will create a soft canvas for the lip tint and prevent it from drying too quickly. To avoid an overly artificial look, apply the tint only on your lower lip and press your lips together for an even spread. If the tint starts creasing, blot your lips with a damp tissue to achieve a natural finish.

Peel-Off Lip Tints

Peel-off lip tints offer a unique application process. After applying a thick layer of the product to your lips, leave it on for at least 10 minutes. Once dry, simply peel off the film, leaving behind a long-lasting and rich stain on your lips. This type of lip tint can last for up to 12 hours and provides a juicy and non-drying finish.

Tint Sticks

Tint sticks combine the convenience of a lip balm or lipstick bullet with the look of a lip tint. Their creamy and lightweight texture, along with moisturizing ingredients, make them ideal for dry lips. Tint sticks offer full coverage and long-lasting color, even after the initial shine wears off.

Matte Lip Tints

To cater to the growing demand for matte lip products, K-beauty companies have introduced matte lip tints as an alternative to liquid lipsticks. These lightweight and non-drying tints provide a smooth and velvety finish. They come in various formulas, including crayons, markers, and mousse. Matte lip tints offer full coverage and an upscale feel, making them a popular choice for those who prefer a matte lip look without the dryness.

Another option for achieving a matte finish is to use a lip topping mattifier. Just pat it onto your favorite non-matte lip color, and you'll have matte lips in no time.
