If you’ve been living under a rock, then you may not have heard about the Rilakkuma collab with A’pieu a while back. Or the second release of the collab. Or the third release of the collab. In short, A’pieu is coming out with shit ton of cute stuff with Rilakkuma on it and I want it all (
AND I WANT IT NOW~ Queen? Anybody?).
The Water Light Lip Tints came with the first release of the Rilakkuma x A’pieu wave along with some BB cushions, blushers/bronzer cushions, eyeshadows, and I think some mascaras. Check out my first blog post about these products here to see what else I purchased (though, I’m pretty sure you can see it in the background).
My experience with lip tints is basically zilch. I’ve mainly used lipsticks and liquid lipsticks because 1) I like them and 2) I hate reapplying. Granted, I do have to reapply with lipstick, but I don’t mind.
I decided to try out these lip tints because Rilakkuma made me do it and I wanted something that was more moisturizing on my lips. I’m over the matte lip look and want something that won’t dry out my lips or look crusty at the end of the day.
- Eyes: L’Oreal Voluminous Primer + Mascara, Touch in Sol Browza in #2 Choc It Up
- Face: Laneige BB Cushion in Medium, The Saem Perfection Tip Concealer in #2, Bourjois Silk Edition Powder in Golden Beige, Physcian’s Formula Butter Bronzer in Bronzer
A little FOTD for you + a peek at how my lips look with no product. I’m running terribly low on my Laneige BB Cushion TT^TT But more on that on another day – on to the swatches!
Shade: CR01 – Unripe Grapefruit
This shade has to be my most reached for shade. The color is pretty much coral. Not too pink and not to orange. Me luvs.
Shade: OR01 – Blushed Mango
This shade is fortunately not as orange as I thought it would be. As I said in my previous blog post about these lippies, I didn’t order the other orange shade available because that is just too orange.
Shade: PK01 – Cherry Blossom
This is not as pinky as it looks on official pictures. Which is a relief~ I don’t wear a lot of pinks, but this is very wearable for me.
Shade: RD01 – Rosy Love
This shade isn’t as dark as I hoped it would be. I was hoping for a darker red, something like, a deep red, but this is a pretty color.
Shade: RD02 – Dreaming Peach
I’m surprised this is called Dreaming Peach. I would’ve expected a peach shade to look a little bit more orange, however, this does look red/orange to me. /side note: who remembers red/orange as a crayon color. I was so confused by that ^^;;/
I don’t know about you, but I’m surprised CR01 looks more pinkier than PK01. I checked the order of my photos and the line up I had on my vanity so much just to be sure I labeled the shades correctly.
As I mentioned in my previous Rilakkuma post, these smell like wine to me. It’s not overpowering, but if you get these in your mouth, the taste is very bad.
These do somewhat stain the lips, but it’s nothing a makeup remover can take off. They don’t stain considerably for very long. Even after it’s set (which takes some time), they are easily removed by food.
They are moisturizing and don’t leave my lips dry or chapped, which I love. I also love how this layers on the lips. The color on my lips is using all that is on the doe foot applicator – speaking of, the applicator makes it very easy to apply. I’m not a fan of brush-type applicators for lips.
Overall, I like these lip tints. I don’t love them – I would prefer if they stained my lips for a longer amount of time, but I do appreciate that they don’t dry out my lips. Reapplication is easy since I can just apply these and rub my lips together. These are perfect for a quick errand or if you don’t plan on eating for a while. Or if you’re a fan of cute things.
