By now, my love for tints is no secret. They’re just what I’ve come to like over time and it all started with the original PeriPera Water Tints, I believe. I like to think the tints in the Vivid Water Tint line are the more vivacious cousins of those tints.
THE BACKSTORY: Let me retract what I just said. The first tint I ever tried was Benefit’s Benetint. That was what I started out with but what made me fall head-over-heels in love with tints were the original Peri’s Water Tints from PeriPera. Both the Water Tints and Benetint are “legendary” products in their own rights.
THE PRODUCT: Like I mentioned before, this line of tints has more body to it than other water tints. It has a thicker, more gel-like consistency. The colours of the tints across this line are highly saturated and vibrant.
If you haven’t worked with tints before, you’ll need to be careful for the first few times you apply it before you get the hang of it. It tends to move around a lot before it dries down, so, be careful that it doesn’t stain your teeth or that you ingest it. It also stains easily, so, you need to be quick and precise with your application.
It’s quite opaque for what it is. It’s easier to tint your lips to the opacity you desire with this tint. What’s more, you need fewer layers for it to reach maximum opacity. Like most tints, it has great lasting-power and outlasts most other lip products.
The first thing you’ll notice when you crack open the “bottle” is the sweet juicy scent. It smells just like fresh juice. Another thing that you’ll be happy to note is that it doesn’t taste half as bad as other tints. If the tint somehow enters your mouth (like most tints tend to do), you can rest assured knowing it’s edible.
The shade I got is ‘01 Cranberry Squeeze’, which is the exact colour of cranberry juice. It’s a fresh, vibrant pinkish berry-red hue that just brightens up the complexion in seconds. Oh, and it smells just like cranberry juice. Every time I put it on, I crave cranberry juice.
The packaging, as you can see, is adorable. It looks like a teeny-weeny bottle of juice and it comes housed in a juice carton. SO DARN CUTE. The applicator has a curve to it so that it hugs your lips better when you apply it.
The only con I would care to mention is the fact that this tint emphasize lip-lines and chapped lips like no other. If your lips aren’t well-moisturised, it’s best to skip this product altogether. Make sure to put on lots of lip balm!
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN THE TINT WATER AND THE VIVID TINT WATER: The original Tint Water line recently got a makeover. They now look similar to this line, except that they have white bottles and not clear ones. The Tint Water line is more lightweight and needs several layers to reach maximum opacity. They also tend to be streaky and bleed a little. This line is more viscous and is more opaque and vibrant. This line also… tastes better. Both of the lines have similar lasting-power.
SWATCHES AND SHADES AVAILABLE: The one I got, ’01 Cranberry Squeeze’, is a brightening pinkish berry-red that smells like cranberry juice. The other shades, I’m sure, smell like their designated fruits too. The ones currently available in this line include:
- #2 Peach Squeeze
- #3 Apple Squeeze
- #4 Grapefruit Squeeze
- #5 Plum Squeeze
PRICE AND QUANTITY: $6 – $8 (depending on where you purchase it from) for 5.5 ml of product.
♥ Overall, these are worth the money and my love for tints continues.
