I remember the only makeup my classmates ever bothered with back in high school was a slick of eyeliner and a swipe of a lip and cheek tint. These were super fuss-free makeup essentials then, since you can just put it on in the morning and go about your day, thinking about other things instead. You know, typical high school concerns. Ain’t nobody got time to think of lipstick!
(I also went to a Catholic school where we were not allowed to wear makeup. So we went for Kool Aid lips instead.)
The Verikos Choc Choc Tint* (which I got in Amanda Pink!) comes in a sleek black tube and minimalist type on the side, for which I am a sucker. It promises lip gloss + lip tint, vivid color, and excellent endurance. With a doe-foot applicator, you can apply it with ease.
The consistency of the product itself is a bit milkier than usual gel/tints.
A heavier application will yield a stronger tint.
I’ve worn this all over the lips, and I’m not much of a fan of lip tints these days because they tend to cling to my inner lip while fading away elsewhere.
It’s a nice, bright pop of color, though. Tints are not known to be particularly moisturizing and they can be unforgiving on your lips when they dry down to a stain and you forgot to exfoliate. You can “re-charge” it by applying a gloss or balm over it, though.
I find that my favorite way of wearing this stain is a gradient/ombre lip, where I apply this to the center of my lips and just top off with the Brilliant loveheart lip Essence* we got with it in the January BNT Girls box:
There you have it! Are you more of a lip tint girl or do you prefer other lip products?
