Julia's Lip Tint 1

Summer’s here (almost) so that means it is time for a great time for Julia’s Lip Tint! And if you’re already a fan you’ll be happy to know she’s revamped the packaging to include an attached wand as well as added a new shade for Spring/Summer called Pink Pop!

Julia's Lip Tint

There’s no secret I’m a lover of Cheek and Lip Stains and Tints! I discovered Julia’s Lip Tint last year and it’s pretty much taken over as one of my favorite lip and cheek tints of all time!

Julia’s Lip Tint is available in 13 shades and is formulated with a rose water and glycerine base. The thing that sets it apart this tint from other formulas is that heavier glycerin base as it applies very easily with a hydrating finish on skin that’s natural and soft. Too many times I run across stains that are difficult to blend out and they end up making my cheeks look ruddy. This base is very hydrating so it smooths onto skin in a soft, even finish without looking patchy. Many stains set very fast and Julia’s Lip Tint does as well but the glycerine does make it a heck of a lot easier to blend out to a natural, fresher finish.

Although shy about marketing it as such Julia’s Lip Tint can be used on your lips or your face. I find on my face it has an 8 to 10 hour wear and on my lips about 8 hours as well with some fading around hour 7.

Formula side this tint happens to come in a variety of shades which is another reason to love, shades you can’t really get from other brands! Plus a large bottle that will literally last you ages.

Recently, Julia revamped her packaging for the better as well. The packaging is the same alchemy glass jar but now there’s a sponge tip applicator that’s attached to the bottle’s cap for easy application. This soft sponge is ideal for dotting on cheeks quickly and easily.

Note: Apologies in advance for my brows. I’m growing them out before my next threading and they are looking heinous I know!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Don’t feel bad about the brows – I wish I had enough to need threading! I’m sparse 🙁

    I’m liking Pink Pop. I was worried it’d be a very cool toned bright pink. This is way wearable. I really like your brows like this.
