Pretty Lips from Tony Moly

I have tried a number of products from Tony Moly : Dual Effects Intensive Sleeping Pack -- good but expensive; Party Lover BB Cream -- inexpensive but has a glossy finish which isn't really appropriate for office workers like me, plus a number of samplers from their Floria skincare line.

But hands down, my favorite Tony Moly product is this ultra-pretty and very inexpensive lip tint.

The Tony Moly Berry Berry Magic Lip Tint in Green Apple

Why do I love this? let me count the ways:

The Price: Very cheap! I think we sell this at a little over 200PHP at the shop. Of course I get it for a bit lower here in Seoul. :-) Just the perks of the trade, aight?

The Color: There are three variants of the Berry Berry Magic Tints:

Berry -- transparent lip gel which turns into light pink upon application
Green Apple -- green lip gel which turns into a reddish-magenta color
Grape -- deep purple lip gel which turns into a burgundy-ish shade of red

Among the three, I like the Green Apple shade most because the shade is so appropriate to use in the office. Like today, I didn't wear any lipstick at all, just this pretty lip tint and I was set. The finish on the lips isn't shimmery at all (For the record, I hate shimmery lip balms and tints as I've noticed that these do not have good staying power or good color pigments at all).

The Wear-off: Well, let me put it this way, I brushed my teeth after eating my breakfast at the office just about an hour ago, and my lips are still sporting that pretty reddish-pink tint.

What it can't do for you: This isn't exactly a moisturizing lip tint. This is a lip tint made to give your lips great and relatively long lasting color. It however will not help you with dry lips. For that, you're better of with Skinfood Shea Butter Lip Care Bar ( I love the one in Raspberry!).

Disclosure: The pics above are stock photos I got from the TM site. I was so excited publishing this (because I sooo love rediscovering this tint again!) that I wanted to publish the post now~while I am at the office haha!~ I will add actual photos of my own liptint and swatches later tonight :-)
