TINTE COSMETICS REVIEW

TINte Cosmetics is a line that is love-inspired, and the simplistic packaging and elegant detailing reflect that. Founder Stacy Provines was inspired by her romance with her finace Matthew, and she used it in a creative way by putting together a line of lovely beauty products. “When I was little,” Stacy explains, “I used to play in my mom’s Indigo Earth powder and steal her sample lip sticks…bu tmy favorite was always flavored lip glosses.” It is clear that Stacy’s love for cosmetics started early on, and she was never afraid to try and dig into her mom’s beauty goodies.

It was only a matter of time before she grew up and created her own line where she wants to make women feel great about themselves. TINte is a throwback to a feeling of a simpler time, one everyone cherishes–“the essence of youth and freedom.” Stacy says, “I wanted the women of today to apply our products and remember the simpler times. The memory of a scent can trascend you from stress filled days, back to a sweet memory of childhood and innocence.”

I recently tried three different TINte products: Flavored Lip Color in Peppermint, Flavored Lip Shine in Double Bubble, and Shimmering Face Pearl in Vanilla Sky. Plus, TINte is offering Temptalia readers 20% off when they purchase from the TINte website using the code “GLOSS” – how awesome is that?

Peppermint Flavored Lip Color comes in a vintage tin, and these are almost like lip balm meets lip stain, because Peppermint is a dark hued red and gives me such a lovely reddened pout. Moisturizing and not really glossy, so they’re a great go-to if you’re on the go or need something quick. Light and easy to take with you anywhere, which makes this an ideal choice for purse-beauty. Slight tingle, too! $14

Double Bubble Flavored Lip Shine is delicious smelling and even tasting – definitely dead ringer for bubble gum! It’s a bit sticky, but I kind of like when my gloss is sticky, so I wasn’t bothered by it. It is a high shine lip gloss with a touch of shimmer. I feel like the lip gloss itself is a bit small for the price tag, though. The packaging makes it adorable, because of its petite size. Even the wand is tiny! $17

Vanilla Sky Shimmering Face Pearl makes an awesome brow highlighter and adds subtle shimmer on cheekbones as a neutral highlight. Everyone knows that I love loose color (like pigments), so this was a great product for me to try out. It is mineral based, which makes it great for sensitive skin. You can use these on eyes, cheeks, lips, and body, and I love a multitasking product since it really lets me use it to the fullest. There are eight shades in total, and some are more neutral like Vanilla Sky, but there are also some very vibrant, deep colors like Midnight Platinum and Emerald Velvet. $14
