I love lip tints, and as apart of my recent Sephora haul (Haul post coming later today) I decided to try out a few of Chosungah 22s Dual lip tints. I have heard amazing things about these tint/gloss duos and I decided to see how they worked for me.
I got the colors Cashmere, and Velvet. But I will be just reviewing Cashmere today, and also give you my overall thoughts!
First the product has 2 different ends (obviously) one with the lip tint, and the other with the accompanying lip gloss. The applicator for the lip tint is really nice, but the brush for the gloss is MEH. I kinda wish they had matching applicators.
The tint is watery, and nicely pigmented, you can layer it on for a sweet light berry lip, or darken it with a few layers. It smells slightly of strawberries. The gloss is a very light nudy pink, and it applies ok, but good golly is it sticky.
I decided to wear just the tint first and see how that wore, and then later on add the gloss to it and see how I liked that.
This is what it looks like with one application. Its a very pretty blushing pink/red color.
Here it is with another application. I tried to layer an additional one more in the inside center of the lips. I like to do that with tints. I dunno I really like the bitten lip look.
With the Gloss
The gloss kind of smoothed out the color and gave the lips a very juicy look. It also softened the color up.
I have mixed feelings. First I ADORE the tint side. it’s a little watery but the applicator is really great so you can get a nice coat on with one or two passes. Its really easy to build on, and it lasts for hours. I only had to reapply after eating a very soupy lunch. However. I can’t stand the gloss. It is way to sticky, I hate the applicator, and it doesn’t do anything to bring out the beautiful shade of the tint. Yuck and nope.
Its $19 on Sephora, and the price isn’t too bad. I got another color (velvet) which I will try later, so honestly if you want a really nice long lasting tint get this definitely (its MUCH cheaper then the Benefit ones, which I also love) You may like the gloss, I dunno I wasn’t a fan. Overall though I did enjoy the tint a lot!
Overall Grade- B
**Tint is an A+ Gloss is a D
