It’s hard not to love a good lip and cheek tint.
For one, it’s the ultimate multitasker that can easily freshen up your whole look in an instant. (Check out these 5-minute looks using just this do-it-all product.) Secondly, when it’s really good, it looks gorgeously au naturel—like that radiant glow you get after a spending some time out under the sun, or the rush of color on your skin when you’re excited or thrilled.
The best part? Tints offer a beauty look that only gets better even as the day wears or your makeup gets melty, fading into a natural hint of color that’s fresh and effortless. (We give plus points if it can survive a gym workout or a swim sesh!)
Here, we’ve rounded up 8 of our favorite lip and cheek tints, all of which promise long-lasting, buildable, and blendable color for both your skin and your puckers.
The oil-free, streak-free stain gives you a rosy glow without the sticky feel, and is a total steal at just P95.
If watery tints make you nervous, this lightweight gel is extra easy to apply and blends seamlessly. It’s also perfect for those with dry complexions, as it’s more nourishing on skin than quick-drying liquids.
Juicy, just-bitten lips and just-pinched cheeks can be easily yours with this stain that’s also infused with Vitamin E for added moisture. It comes in tree shades: Tipsy, Very Red, and Fresh Fig.
Creamier than the usual tint, this has striking pigment that lets you go from sheer to dramatic, and gives a paint-like effect. It’s great as eye shadow, too!
The perfect blendable red, it’s neither too faint nor too overpowering, and dries to a smooth, budge-proof stain without visible edges. Bonus tip: On lips, dab, instead of swipe, to layer and achieve a more opaque look.
We love how this features two juicy shades that you can use separately or together depending on the look you’re going for. It dries fast, though, so make sure you blend quickly!
A lip and cheek stain in balm form? Yes, please. Perfect your tipsy flush with this super-moisturizing, cocktail-inspired drunk blush that leaves a natural, soft-matte finish on lips and cheeks. (The Mimosa shade—see lower right corner—also works as a bronzer.)
This weightless gel from one of our local faves, Ellana, is rich in pigment and is easy to layer, minus the sticky feeling. It feels ultra comfortable on lips and is non-drying, too.
