Remember those wine bottle shaped lip tints that popped up on the internet? Yeah, this is what I’m talking about! I never really intended to get them because I already had a lip tint, but a few things happened (needed to reach order minimum, and my lip tint sort of dried out) and next thing I know they were bought, shipped and at my door in 2-3 weeks.
At the time I bought the lip tints, they had released another version with different colours and a new formula; the Labiotte Velvet Lip Tints. So rather than get two from the same line (and review it) I have one of each of the lines to review today.
For the original lip tints, I ended up buying the teeny version of it which wasn’t really a good idea. The larger version of the lip tints are $12 CAD or so already, but the teeny version is $9 CAD…. Anyways, pricing aside, I got it in the colour Rose Coral which is this coral-pink rose colour. It’s a very pretty colour, don’t get me wrong, but with some natural lip colours it may show up a bit more coral, pink or it would turn your lips a light shade of red.
The second lip tint from Labiotte is from the velvet line. I got it in the colour PK01 Saint Rose, which is this pink-nude type colour but it borders a bit more on the pink side. However, like the original tints the colour that shows up will be influenced by how pigmented your natural lips are; because it shows up as a pink-red on my lips LOL.
Overall, with the slight colour discrepancy aside, they are wonderful lip tints. They’ve lasted through a meal, however I don’t think they’ll hold their ground well with oily and greasy foods. The velvet one does tend to cling to dry skin on your lips if it’s super dry, but a light exfoliation before wear should be fine. Between the two, I like the velvet lip tint better. However the original is also great!
Anyways, that’s all for this review! Let me know if you’ve tried this, or any other Labiotte products in the comments!
