Rom&nd’s Glasting Water Lip Tint was one of the most popular lip items back in 2020 (wow it’s 2021 already?!) and was amazingly hard to get in late August when I was looking around. They were mostly sold out in many places or there was no colour variety available, and some places also marked up the price for them. I did eventually get my hands on them, so here’s a review on how they are!
There is a total of 8 different colours for the Glasting Water Lip Tints, and there was an additional 4 colours added separately as part of the Hanbok Collection. To be frank, all of the colours look really nice but on the promotional/swatch pictures some look more similar than others. The colours from the Hanbok Collection essentially added 2 beige-based colours and 2 berry-based colours.
Here are the original swatches from the brand site.
I got the lip tint from a site called Stylevana, for about $13 CAD which was cheaper than the price of $16-$18 CAD at some local stores. If you’re curious about my shopping experience from Stylevana, check out this previous blog post here! It was also the last blog post from 2020.
I bought the colour #08 Rose Stream, which as you can see from the swatches above looks like a red-brown/rose colour. I didn’t know a lot about the lip tints until after I placed my order, but it’s kind of sheer and you can build up the colour. The tint seems to also have (what I like to call) a two-layer technology; the tint and the glossy/watery layer on top. I’ve seen videos of people saying that the tint is mask-proof (or at least partially).
I think that’s kind of true, the actual tint will stay on your lips but the watery/glossy layer on top will likely be rubbed off by the mask. There is a smell to the product, I don’t know if each has a different scent but mine smells fruity. It doesn’t feel heavy on the lips but the watery layer on top will take a while to get used to because I’m not used to wearing glosses and the like.
Packaging-wise, the box is a thicker clear plastic so you can see the tint tube. The tub has a clear cap and wand, which I’m not going to lie, I really like. It’s frustrating if it gets smudged with the tint but I like the aesthetic. The tube also seems to be a little bigger than other tints, but I’m not 100% sure.
Overall, I’m fairly pleased with the purchase. I love the colour and it’s good to wear in any season, fairly mask-proof and I might get one from the HanBok collection. I would recommend it for anyone who wants to try it, but it’ll be a game-changer for those who love tints and wants one that won’t smudge away immediately with the masks.
