BLK Cosmetics All Day Lip and Cheek Water Tint Review and Swatch in Cherry

BLK Cosmetics All Day Lip and Cheek Water Tint Cherry Swatch Review | Makeup in Manila

Last week while I was shopping, I stumbled upon the BLK Cosmetics counter and saw their newest  K-Beauty inspired products. Since we were going to the beach and I really didn't want to wear any makeup at all during our vacation, I decided I'd buy a little lip tint... 

I mean I didn't want to wear any makeup, but I also didn't want to look dead too. Lol. I thought adding a bit of a lip and cheek tint to my routine wouldn't hurt.

I'm pretty familiar with Anne Curtis and her love for K-dramas. In fact, I too bought my very first lip tint then because I saw that it was being used in the K-drama I was watching before. They have four shades in the lip and cheek water tint line, and I chose Cherry because it looked the most natural on me.

The doe foot applicator is so small and it's very flexible too. 
It also absorbs a lot of product, so dab a little bit at a time.

BLK Cosmetics All Day Lip and Cheek Water Tint Cherry Review
I'm back from a weekend at the beach and I believe my mission of not looking like a zombie with just sun block on was successful thanks to this lip and cheek water tint.

I really didn't have any high expectations for this product as it just looks very similar to other lip and cheek tints I've tried, but the wand that it has is just amazing. It's this doe foot applicator which bends and feels like jelly. It's very, very similar to the wands from the Tanya Burr Lip Glosses. Also, you need to be careful because the applicator is so absorbent that you only need about two to three dabs on your lips or your cheeks to achieve a full flush. The glass bottle is pretty normal-sized too comparing it with other brands and it has a very mild scent which isn't really noticeable at all.

Formula-wise it's very liquidy as the name suggests and you can build up the color to how red you want it to be. But when it comes to longevity and claiming to stay all day... On the cheeks - yes, but on the lips - no. It's just something that I've already accepted because I eat and drink a lot. Any kind of lip product that I put on will just fade throughout the day and I consider lip products to be good if they make it through the 4-hour wear or through a heavy meal. So as for this lip tint, it actually depends on my initial application. When I apply this very light and au naturale, it lasts for about two to three hours. But when I apply this lip tint a bit more boldly, it lasts for about four hours or more with drinks and meals. It has a bit of a taste, not too bitter, but it's not something I enjoy. It feels very light on the lips and not drying at all.

As a cheek tint, this lasts way, way longer than expected. Of course, it depends on how natural or bold you want your blush to be, but it's actually great for oily skin and the flush can last up to eight hours. I also like the fact that application is a bit more relaxed... meaning this isn't something that you need to work quickly with. You know how other lip tints kind of dry immediately after five seconds and it just gives you an uneven finish? I hate those kinds of tints, so I'm very thankful that BLK Cosmetics isn't one of them. I'm starting to get the "Uncomplicated Beauty" tagline right now.

Overall thoughts, I think it's a good quality and fair product. The price point being PHP 249 for 2.15 grams is affordable enough for students and for corporate people like me even though I know I can finish this in less than two or three months. I like the packaging especially the doe foot applicator. I like how the product doesn't dry out my lips and how it just feels light on both the lips and the cheeks. It's just that natural flush that I needed on the beach.

I've already bought a few new products from BLK Cosmetics, and I can say that I'm slowly becoming a fan. Let me know what your favorites are from the brand because I would love to try them!

  3. Huhu i remembered my BLK brow pencil that fell from my pouch. Wala pang one month sakin yun nung nawala. Okay yun longevity at shade pero yun tip mas gusto ko slimmer gaya slanted tip nun sa Etude House.
    Okay din pala ito? Gusto ko rin subukan. Nakakainis yun mabilis natutuyo bago mo pa ma blend. Either tuldok-tuldok yun cheeks mo o may straight line ng tint haha!

    Same here, para d magmukhang dead o maputla dapat may kunting kulay kaya hilig ko din mag lip tint. As in kahit yun lang laman ng pouch ko okay na. Cute nga nung shade na Cherry kasi medyo natural ang dating :)

  7. really? slanted ba yung sa BLK? i didn't know that they had brow products nga eh. ikaw lang nag sabi :)

    haha. na trauma ako sa ganyan kaya hindi ako mahilig sa tints and cream blushes!

  8. Hindi ko alam yun tawag sa tip ng eyebrow pencil pero naka slant din pero medyo makapal then Etude. Mas hawig yata sa TFS. Pati cream blushes ba may tendency na hindi mapantay? Hindi pa ako naka try ng cream blush eh, powder at tint lang.
