I've heard a lot of beauty bloggers talking about this product so I wanted to try it out for myself!
There's a wide shade range for these tints as well. They have 10 original shades ranging from lighter nudes to vibrant oranges and reds and 6 limited summer colors. They're more "neon" and bright shades.
I usually like to dab the product on because it gives a more natural, less pigmented look and I love the finish. I love how you can either wear this product sheer or with full pigmentation.
For longevity it's hard to tell when this really wears off completely because I wear it sheerly but I would say it lasts for 3-4 hours without eating or drinking. The glossiness does fade after 3-4 hours but you could either reapply or leave it as it is because it doesn't fade off the lips in an unflattering, patchy way like a lot of tints do.
- really pretty color
- tints lips a little
- not drying
- amazing scent (smells like fruity candy) I wish I could remember what candy it reminds me of!
- glossy finish
- wears off nicely
- lots of colors to choose from
- not easy to find Aritaum products
- accentuates dry parts of lips
Anyways, I definitely recommend this product! I'm in love with the smell and the color. It accentuating dry patches doesn't really bother me because I have to exfoliate and use some sort of lip balm with almost all my lip products anyways. If you don't want to be hassled with exfoliating, etc. though this product may not be for you.
If you're looking for a glossy, creamy type of lip tint I think this product is perfect for you. If you also like a tint that can be used either sheer or opaque this is also perfect for you! If you don't have access to Aritaum products though I would recommend the Revlon Lip Butters as they are a really similar product. The Revlon products aren't tints though so they won't stain the lips.
If you don't like exfoliating your lips all the time or have really dry lips then this product may not be for you. I have really dry lips though and I can still make this product work very nicely for me.
