Colourette is that brand which I’ve heard so much good stuff about. I wanted to try it out so bad but never got around to actually doing so not until recently. I finally got my hands on their latest collection of lip tints called colourtints in matte. These are actually their classic tints but in newer packaging form.
I raise my right hand to this: I do not like lip-tints. I cannot tolerate having wounded dry lips or inconsistent patchy barely-stain-your-lips look that I get from average lip tint. However, colourette has become everybody’s favorite because of their pigmented but hydrating colourtints I couldn’t help but give lip tints another try.
Quality check first.
Colourette is known for their Filipina-centered beauty campaign but aside from that their products are:
- Natural ingredients
- Cruelty free
- Locally made
- Contains SPF
Impressive, right? Let me tell you, from these facts alone I’m already sold but of course I have to try out the products itself in order to actually give an unbiased opinion.
From the get-go, the range of their colors is known to have every shade that suits every pinay skin tone; mestiza, chinita and morena. I’m not very fair but not morena either so I’m somewhere close to chinita and I had difficulty finding the right shade of beautiful matte muted red that could match my warm skin tone. And tell you what I found it at Colourette.
I have their 24/7 kit which includes 10 beautiful shades that falls into brown-orange-beige-red shades. It comes in a clear plastic pouch lined with cute peach zippers, great to repurpose as makeup kit or organizer pouch. It also includes two placards which show off the tints alongside their corresponding descriptions.
On to the tints.
These coloutints are multipurpose so it can be used on the lips, cheeks and eyelids –definitely a steal. It is oil based (something new right?) which contains natural argan oil and beeswax so it’s hydrating and doesn’t dry the lips however I still need to prep (scrub and moisturize) my lips before applying to avoid flaky-chipping lips. It’s also crazy pigmented (seriously) but is still nicely blendable and dries off as matte finish almost like a liquid lipstick but it’s really lightweight it feels like it’s barely there. Because its oil based it’s easy to apply and doesn’t leave patches or streak marks. It does stay on for quite a while but sometimes I’d reapply a bit after food and drinks to maintain that opaque and matte finish.
The product itself does separate from the oil when left still after some time and that’s normally how it is just be sure to shake it up real good before applying.
My Choice and How I Apply it.
My favorite would be the shades Olive (Cocoa Brown), Lucy (Chili Red) and Ellie (Muted Brown Red). I normally do simple and subtle for my daily look so I just dab 2-3 small dots on the inner part of the lower lip and spread it across my lips using my pinky finger. It could dry-off easy on the lips so I try to make my moves fast. For my cheeks, I do two tiny dots and blend with my fingers as well. It is much pigmented so 1-3 dots do the job just fine and can go a long way. I just add another layer after another if want to achieve bold full lips.
Well, the hype was well worth it. The colourtint really changed my view on tints and I can say colourtint is hands down one of the best tints out there. The 24/7 kit is worth 2,499 pesos but they retail each tint for 299 pesos –a bit above regular lip tint price but considering the ingredients and the gorgeous finish I think it’s all worth the money. I mean if I don’t get cracked lips and I get all heart-fluttered in every swipe I’m all for it. Hehe.
