Price: P940/set | P260/piece
Bought from: Althea Korea
I am so excited to share with you my review for these Althea Korea Watercolor Cream Tints! It's been a while since I stopped using tints because if you read my previous blogs, I'm very particular to lip products. I always get chapped, dry puckers from using such and it's even worse with lip tints. But then, we, girls, cannot resist beautiful things, don't you agree? So today, I am sharing with you my thoughts on these Althea Korea Watercolor Cream Tints which I already talked about during a makeup tutorial I did last February. I only had snippets back then so it's now time to make a full review dedicated only to this particular set.
Get deliciously juicy lips with Althea's Watercolor Cream Tints! These pretty tubes give you the best of all worlds with the pigmentation of a lipstick, the long-wearing power of a stain and the moisturizing formula of a gloss. Bold, pigmented and equipped with a pretty sheen, these lippies contain hyaluronic acid and squalene to prevent chapped lips from flaking, perfect for stashing in your purse for easy touch-ups and comfortable wear. Pick from 4 different shades to suit your mood!
It comes in black cardboard box and has information written only in Korean. I really do hope they will start revamping it as I don't read Korean. The tints itself looks really cute. It comes in a matte black cap and a transparent plastic material so you can see the actual color from the inside. The rectangle shape appears even more interesting and unique than those in tubing. These are travel-friendly and I also like the doe foot applicator as its functional and hygienic.
Althea Korea Watercolor Cream Tints come in four (4) shades namely: Plum Cream, Strawberry Cream, Peach Cream and Marron Cream - all sounds so delicious and yummy! They smell like candies too!

TEXTURE, PIGMENTATION AND EASE OF APPLICATION
These tints have watery consistency and is quite jelly-like because of the sheen finish. Despite the thin consistency, it leaves a very strong color payoff. In fact, one dot is enough to give the entire lips a pop of color. That is safe to say that a little goes a long way. A few more can give a pigmentation of a lipstick. After moderate drinking and eating, I'm amazed how there's still a strong stain of tint left. These tints last for hours and I swear by it.
I've never tried a tint before that's so cheap at P260 a piece and but works so great. It can be drying but nothing a good lip balm can fix. The good news? You can use the code BFFTINTS when you shop at ph.althea.kr to get two (2) tints for the price of one!
I truly love these products and it's a proof that Althea Korea never disappoints. It's very easy to do ombre effects with these tints because they settle on the lips quite fast and is very buildable. I just don't think it will make a good cheek tint because again, the color payoff is really strong and they settle quite fast when in contact with the skin, giving you minimum time to blend. I hate to be bias but my favorite among all 4 is the Plum Cream and it's what I always carry in my purse. Nonetheless, the other shades are great too!
