I’m a little late (as I always am) when it comes to make up trends but the KJM Cosmetics Lip & Cheek tint was something I honestly paid very little attention to since its first appearance in Cebu early this year. Sure, I saw it on racks on racks on racks whenever I went shopping but I never really bothered to ask what the big deal was nor did I care to try it out. In my head I thought to myself that, “it was just another lip and cheek tint” and that tints were sooo high school (and college) but I was surprisingly wrong. Lip and cheek tints are very much real, my friends!
What is KJM Cosmetics Lip & Cheek tint?
I tried researching it but their official website doesn’t really answer any real questions like, “why are they so famous?” and “what are they made of?” but Kimpossibly Gorgeous’ raves that it’s a Filipino brand and continues on her own review with an ecstatic yey for Pinoy Pride. Yey from me too!
My supplier and the beloved sponsor of this post, Let’s Stylize, did mention though that the products are organic and therefore are safe to consume (if you like to consume lip tint?).
As requested, I pulled out 5/ 10 shades that Let’s Stylize has to offer and this week, I have made it my sole purpose to try out, test and share my sentiments with my wonderful readers about what I think about the KJM Cosmetics Lip & Cheek tint.
I DID A FACEBOOK LIVE!
If you haven’t gotten around to watching the vlog, here’s a run through of the video:
What makes a good lip and cheek tint?
I thought long and hard (lol, jk, I used common sense) and thought about what comprised a good/ decent tint and came to the conclusion that it takes the factors: consistency, longevity and price point.
Consistency. The tint is light weight but much to my dismay, is oil based. Unfortunately for me, I hate oil and I quickly found out in the video that oil tends to spill on to your teeth if you’re not careful and will tint your teeth, as well. Although, I wouldn’t really think of this as a bad thing because you can always allow the tint to dry or dab the tint in portions before smacking your lips together. Either route, the oil dries up and you’re not left in this predicament for too long.
Longevity. You obviously want your tint to last long because who likes constantly reapplying make up anyways? I certainly don’t! Reviews say that this products lasts up from 3- 6 hours, depending on how often you wet your lips and I definitely wanted to put this to the test or… tests, rather!
EXPERIMENT NO. 2: The water test
EXPERIMENT NO. 3: The food test
EXPERIMENT NO. 4: The kissing test
EXPERIMENT NO. 5: The drop test (not a part of longevity but let’s throw it in there anyways!)
If you want to see the results… please watch the video. And while you’re at it, like, SUBSCRIBE & leave some love in the comments section below 😀
Price Point. A bottle of this tint will cost you about P150.00 and is said to last you a looong time (according to Youtube reviews). I’d say, it’s a pretty penny to pay and I definitely think it hits the sweet spot, price-wise.
Here are some swatches:
Bittersweet Magenta (on cheeks only)
Bittersweet Magenta (on cheeks & lips)
See what I meant by it going on your teeth!
Although I really did have an issue with it being oil based, it’s pretty forgivable and since shooting this video, I have incorporated the tint in my daily make up routine.
I could tell you all about it, really. But I’d rather you watch the video so please, do me the honors!! <3
That’s all that I have for today, dear friends and beloved readers!
