Best & Worst of ColourPop Just a Tint Lip Pencils

ColourPop Just a Tint Lippie Tint ($7.00 for 0.07 oz.) is described as “the perfection sheer wash of colour in the comfiest, lightweight, super moisturizing formula.” Here’s the big takeaway… they are not that sheer; they’re not a wash of color. They have medium to semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a few shades being more true medium in coverage; I just wouldn’t say they’re sheer nor just a wash. That medium to semi-opaque level of coverage still allows for some translucency, which gives the color a lighter look that’s more like a stain.

The texture was creamy, thin, lightweight, and balm-like; I’d actually say it felt like a gel-like balm because it had the cushion-like slip of a lip balm but had the smoothing prowess of more gel-based formulas. The most impressive aspect of the formula was how little the colors sank into my lip lines and how forgiving they were with imperfections in lip texture. The wear time varied from two and a half to four hours on me, and the formula was lightly hydrating over time. They have a sweet, fruity scent (passionfruit per their website) but no discernible taste.

I actually quite liked them, but the ratings are a bit lower than they “should” be due to the pigmentation being more than described for most shades.

These are right up my alley. I was wondering if there was any place where the lip tints in the main picture were identified by shade? I have a cool undertone and sometimes lip swatches look very different on me. Thank you!

Despite the lack of sheerness, these are all very appealing to me (well … not all, depending on the color). They could have turned out a lot glossier than they did, given the moisturizing claims, but it seems to me that was kept to a minimum. Yeah … I’m not in the market for a product like these at this exact moment, but when I’m ready, I hope CP still has them, as I really am interested.

I will say that I wish they had at least one mauve-y color, or maybe a cooler plum, but if they keep them around for a while and they seem like a popular-enough product, I can see them adding more colors.

I really, really like Cherry Pickin’, but I have to say – it’s not as moisturizing as I hoped. It almost feels kind of drying on my lips.

It goes on like a dream though, the color is gorgeous, the smell is lovely!

I have a bunch of colors in this formula now and I’m really enjoying them! Maui Wowi is my favorite of the bunch, such a fun pink! I agree about them wearing a bit more like a stain than a sheer wash/ tint. I had Treasure Island on the other day and 8 hours later it was still going strong and bold!
