ColourPop The Strand & Treasure Island Just a Tint Lippie Tints Reviews & Swatches

The Strand

Colour Pop The Strand Just a Tint Lippie Tint ($7.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and a natural sheen. It had medium coverage in a single pass, which was buildable to semi-opaque pigmentation. The texture was lightweight, thin without being clingy, though this shade wasn’t as forgiving of imperfections in lip texture as other shades. There was a touch of product that sank into my deeper lip lines but not enough that it was noticeable in person. The lipstick-balm hybrid was comfortable to apply and to wear, as it had enough glide to go on in a fluid stroke, but it didn’t feel slippery during wear. It lasted well for three and a half hours and was hydrating over time.

Formula Overview

$7.00/0.07 oz. - $100.00 Per Ounce

The formula 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.

Treasure Island

Colour Pop Treasure Island Just a Tint Lippie Tint ($7.00 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a natural finish. The lip pencil had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which applied evenly and smoothly across my lips without tugging or dragging. It had a smooth, balm-like consistency that had enough slip to glide comfortably over my lips, but it didn’t feel slippery during wear, so the color stayed in place better and didn’t sink into my lip lines noticeably. It wore well for four and a half hours one and left a very faint stain behind, while the formula felt moisturizing while worn.

Loving Treasure Island big time! However, I do have UD Crisis. Very different formulation, though, I’m thinking.TI might be perfect for our now balmy monsoon weather, huh?
