Hi again lovelies - let's talk Tints and Sass!
|Tints & Sass, $22|
Tints & Sass is a lip and cheek stain, similar to Benefit's Benetint. It is a sheer gel that can be applied to your lips or cheeks for a gentle wash of color, and can be built up by layering. In the past, I've tended to steer clear of such products because, frankly they
You can purchase Tints & Sass on the Elizabeth Mott Website for $22. On the webpage, Tints & Sass is touted to be an "all day color that will kick some sass!". It is described as a "gentle, lightweight formula that feels like it's barely there" and "a non-drying formula that lasts all day". It also states that the "soft tip applicator makes it ridiculously easy to swipe onto lips and the apples of the cheeks, creating a natural, yet unforgettably sexy glow".
As I stated previously, this is a stain - and therefore a bit daunting - but I found that the applicator is easy to use, and if you apply it with a light hand it can create a beautiful effect. A little goes a looooong way, and this tint is very good at it's job; I swiped the product on my hand so I could dab my brush in it, and it left a large pink circular mark that did not come off, no matter how much I scrubbed...guess it's time for me to purchase that mixing tray I've been eyeing!

After trying out the product several times, I've determined the following:
Pros: Long lasting, great applied under lipstick, stays on cheeks better than powder blush, surprisingly non-drying, lightweight/ no-makeup feel, very pretty color (IMO).
Cons: Not many, with the exception of the fact that it stains places you may not want stained. If you don't like the color once applied, you kind of have to wait until it wears off to get rid of it (unless you have a makeup wipe nearby, and that doesn't always remove the stain 100%); you can apply another color over it to change it if it's really that bad. Also, this is not a product you can apply on the go, without a mirror - it needs a little extra time to get it right, so if you're running late save it for a different day.
In the end, I must confess I've come to Adore Elizabeth Mott Tints & Sass Lip Tint!
Have you tried this or other brands of cheek/lip tint? What tips/tricks do you have to make it more user friendly?

Live a beautiful life!
