Moisturizes lips but stains unevenly
I decided to try this after finishing Benetint from Benefit, which is one of my go-to products, in search for an alternate tint. Although it provides enough moisture and color, I don't like it's effect when applied. It stains easily so be very careful when applying. Also, the inner or the chapped part of the lips is stained darker (and no, it's not the gradient/ombré Korean lip type) which makes you look like a 7yr. old who just sucked on a lollipop- not cute at all. But I've discovered that you can avoid this if you put petroleum jelly or lip balm first, remove excess product on wand, then apply on your finger to use as applicator. Using the wand directly puts too much product on the lips causing it to look uneven. Two things I'm looking for in a lip tint is having to apply it effortlessly or without the need of a mirror and it must look natural. Sadly, this didn't meet my expectations. Will be going back to Benetint.
