Tony Moly New Kiss Lover Live Tint 2 Orange Swatch + ReviewThursday, April 02, 2015
One of the items in the Korean-Canadian gift swap was the Tony Moly Kiss Lover Live Tint (where did they come up with this name?! haha I bet that's why Sam purchased it though hehe). Tonly Moly claims:
Vivid like gloss.
Moisture finish without stickiness.
Just-right density texture / Fast penetration & Vivid color.
Ultra high definition vivid moisturizing color.
Disclaimer: Product given as a gift. My opinions are my own, honest opinions.
COLOUR: I got colour 02 'Orange' which isn't actually as orange as they show in their swatch. It's definitely not fluorescent orange on me but more of a bright-orange-coral. My lip pigmentation does add more redness to it but even in my swatch it doesn't show up as straight orange. It actually looks more like what they show in shade 03.. I wonder if mine was mislabeled. lol
It IS vivid, just like they promise though.
FORMULA: Tony Moly says that this is a moisture finish without stickiness. I say this is a moisture finish with stickiness. I wore this out for a bit and even after 2 hours my lips still felt sticky. They didn't feel dry which was a huge plus but it wasn't a sticky-free situation (heh). It does leave a nice, faint stain on your lips so if you're not a fan of reapplying, this is a great natural after-finish.
LONGEVITY: It stains your lips so it lasts quite a while BUT the actual formula doesn't last on your skin. I drank and ate and afterwards only a faint stain was left.
PACKAGING: Very travel friendly, the brush is your typical lip brush but it's bendy. I like the simple and clean look of this. No, it's not cute, but it's damn sleek looking!
FINAL THOUGHTS: I'm kind of on the fence if I'd try the other colours out. I've tried better stain/tints before (Peripera's orange tint is phenomenal) but I didn't dislike this one either! It IS quite bright but I'm no stranger to wearing something vivid. I think this is a nice spring/summer lip tint. It's not too pricey but I'd likely skip it for Tony Moly's other tints.
