Pros And Cons Of Tint

  4. Ease of application: the product can be applied in 30 seconds. No need to draw additional contours.

Among the drawbacks:

  1. It is very drying on the lips, so it’s best to use tint on prepared skin. For example, first, apply balm and let it soak in.
  2. Hard to rinse off. Additional means should be used – lotions, hydrophilic oil, and sterile napkins.
  3. The difficulty of application.

Tips For Choosing A Tint

  1. Pay attention to the stated characteristics and contraindications. For especially sensitive skin, it is recommended to use products with a low persistence level.
  2. Choose a tint according to your skin tone. Cool shades are recommended for light skin, and soft, warm colors for darker skin. Bright berry tones beautifully accentuate tans.
  3. Try and experiment: most tints are compatible with each other. Bright shades can be used with light ones and get a unique “ombré” effect on the lips. Don’t forget that in a bottle, the tint will look more intense than on the skin.
