Review: Nature Republic By Flower Triple Volume Tint 03 Lilac 

This is the first water tint that I have ever tried. With that said, I am writing this blog post with no bias. This is not the first time that I have purchased, used, and got disappointed with a Nature Republic product. According to other reviews I’ve read, this tint offers great color, long wearing time, and a glossy finish. But as I have tried it, I found out that it is not that great of a product as others are trying it to be. It is available in 9 shades.

Here’s Lilac 03 swatched on my hand:

FINISH: It has a glossy finish and it doesn’t settle on the lines of lips. It has the sticky feeling that we often get from wearing lip gloss. I actually didn’t expect that from a lip tint. Definitely thumbs down for me. 

CONSISTENCY: It’s watery but it doesn’t run.

PIGMENTATION/SHADE: 03 Lilac is a pink shade that is perfect for everyday use specially for students like me. It has a subtle pink shade that makes your lips look naturally pink. You need at least 2 swipes to get the real color.
It’s also been advertised as a lip tint that you can use to have that gradient effect. I tried to do it but it’s kind of difficult using this specific lip tint.

SCENT: The scent may be too strong for others who are quite sensitive but I personally find it bearable.

LONGEVITY: The shine is still visible after almost an hour of application but the tint stays on the lips for approximately 3 hours. The tint transfers on cups and straws. You have to re-apply after eating snacks or meals.

PRICE: I bought it from my reliable and trusted online seller SaeSil ParknShop for 281php

PACKAGING: The packaging is simple and is very nice specially the flower pattern on one side

What I like about the product:
  • Simple packaging
  • Color is perfect for everyday use
  • It’s very affordable!

What I didn’t like about the product:
  • Sticky feeling
  • Short wearing time
  • It transfers, and you have to re-apply after eating (even light snacks)
  • Difficult to achieve the gradient look

2 out of 5

Final Verdict: I don’t really recommend this product since it feels more of a gloss that a tint. But if you’re into lip gloss, I guess you’ll love this product. It’s also cheap and has a very cute packaging. It’s available in NR stores in the Philippines or if you want to buy it in a cheaper price, you can order online through SaeSil ParknShop!
