Could it be? A second review in one week for Oh My Gloss Blog? Yes! I have been sorting out some time to post regularly again, yay! Today’s review is about the Color Live Tints from Aritaum that I have been wearing religiously! If you follow me on my social media accounts you can see why! They are the prettiest tints!
Old Tint vs. New Tint Comparison
These tints were released early this year 2017 and it has been said that this is an upgraded version of the Color Lasting Tint that Aritaum had before. The lasting tints had 15 shades but the color live tints have the 12. The packaging is more simple, and personally I like the Color Live one more than I do the Color Lasting. The Color Live has a cute little heart window to see the actual color inside and is a good way to see if you need to stock up again, he he. The applicator is also different from the old tints. The Color lasting one had a donut shape but the color lasting one is a long doe foot tip. I’m not sure about the texture and wear of the color lasting tints but from what I’ve heard and read they say that it’s a better quality than before. These actually remind me of the Yves Saint Laurent Vinyl Lip Tints, very similar color shades and number of choices, all black packaging with window, similar texture and shine. So I guess you could say these are a dupe!
The Live is actually an acronym for its formulation!
Lightness in texture
Intense color and lasting
Various colors to compliment all skin tones
Effective glossiness ( that one is a bit of a stretch lol)
I have to agree that all of its description is true! It’s not sticky at all and it doesn’t feel like I have anything on my lips. Also the texture is a creamy mousse-gel formula so the application is very silky and smooth. The pigmentation on these are also really good. You get the color that you see. It’s great for full lips or gradation lips.
The colors that are available are all so pretty! Aritaum did a really good job of picking colors that are trendy yet will look good on anyone. Also the color’s aren’t just you typical coral, red, pink, and orange that you might get at some road shops. I guess I want to say that the colors are more sophisticated.
These tints do leave a stain and last quite a while, but if you’re eating greasy foods then it will fade. When it does it wasn’t too splotchy or uneven, so if you do forget to reapply it won’t look terrible. I also like the glossy formula, it hydrates my lips and it makes them look healthy. Especially perfect for spring and summer. The glossiness stays for a while to, but again eating an drinking will fade it.
The application is also very easy and the color adheres well and it doesn’t bleed, or give be the yogurt effect – gunk around the inside of the lips. The doe foot applicator makes it easy to line the outer lip for a full lip look. There is a fruity cosmetic smell which I don’t mind but some of you might not like it. There isn’t a bad perfumy taste either.
I LOVE THESE TINTS! They are great quality and very affordable. I already bought four, but I can’t seem to find one of them. Aritaum in Korea sometimes have these 1+1 sales on tints and if they do another sale I will probably get more and stock up on some of my favorite shades like coral on top!
