Okay, I'm going to be honest, I've never heard of this brand until Regina Belmonte (@vivatregina) mentioned it on her Instagram page. I mean if it was good enough for her, it's good enough for me! Her Tumblr post years ago was also the reason why I bought MAC Rebel. :3
I don't have much experience with lip tints, but I am still currently obsessed with the Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint — it's the only lip product that I have been using for the past few weeks! — so I was looking for a nice alternative since the brand isn't available locally.
The Skin Genie Lip & Cheek Tint (Php80/10ml) is an all-natural makeup gel that delivers gorgeous color on lips and cheeks. Yeeep, the price is EIGHTY FREAKING PESOS. Probably the cheapest lip product I've ever tried.
Tramp is a pinky coral, which is usually a color I'm not too fond of. But this one looks super nice. Honestly, the shade is best described as cute (as in pabebe cute lol) hehe. I didn't think I'd like Tan Brown, but I ended up really, really loving that one. I don't often see brown colored lip tints, and the fact that they have one (a nice shade of brown, at that) was pretty cool.
The lip tints are housed in a glass bottle with a roller ball as the applicator. Not the best packaging for a very runny lip tint, but I can overlook it since the price is super cheap! I've read a review that said that the packaging is leak-proof, but it's most definitely not. While taking photos for this post, both shades had spilled on me, so be careful when storing it.
It smells exactly like a melon candy I used to eat when I was a kid, which was a pleasant surprise. You know I hate fragrance on makeup, but the smell doesn't linger, so I was fine with it.
The tints leave a bit of oily residue on my lips when first applied, and yes, it bothers me a little. But I just pat a tissue (or my fingers) over my lips, and it's fine afterwards. It dries down to a matte finish, and stays on for hours.
I'm getting Creamy Peach, Merlot & Burgundy Wine next. P80 lang guys, P80!!!
I was going to buy it online, but I found out that they have a stall in Pop Culture, Trinoma! It's adjacent Chedelyn's Cosmetics stall. :)
