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!
