This was immediately after removing the lip tint off my arm and it stayed for a few days.
The packaging of these lip tints is outstanding because it appeared simple-looking but the transparent and square design made it look like it’s from an expensive brand when it costs a lot cheaper. Some people might think that a RM20 lip tint can’t do well but so far, Althea has never really failed me. Here’s why:
Colour: Surprise, Surprise! MLBB Goodness.
Texture: A mixture of flowy and shiny creamy.
Smell: Sweat combination of strawberries and peaches.
Firstly, the colours are surprisingly suitable for my skin tone. I was a little sceptical about the first two colours (#1 Plum Cream and #2 Strawberry Cream) but they look really pretty! In fact, I wear them more often than I would’ve thought. My favourite colours so far are ranked as #4 Marron Cream, #3 Peach Cream, #1 Plum Cream, and #2 Strawberry Cream. The smell of the lip tint is sweet, like Pokki sweet with a very, very small hint of bitter. This is probably contributed by the bitterness in the taste of the lip tint. Also, this lip tint is not transferproof or smudgeproof but it’s fine by me.
Now, the texture is another surprise. When applying, it is as flowy and blendable as drawing watercolour on a paper. That being said, the colours are buildable and you can easily achieve gradient lips with them. Once it is settled, it turns into nice creamy texture but it does not feel heavy or sticky. It does last for quite a long period of time and reapplying is not necessary until after eating. Sometimes I wouldn’t even bother reapplying because the tinting was staining enough on the lips so that, even after eating, some of the colours still remained on my lips.
One thing that I dislike is that I can’t apply it further into the waterline of my lips. This is because it will easily stain my teeth and my braces. The hardest part I that, I can’t clean it off completely due to my braces blocking in the way so, occasionally my teeth would look a little pinkish albeit you can only notice if you pay harder attention to my teeth. Almost all of the lip products hardly gave me an issue like this, so this is a little sad about the lip tint. However, this is just a small thing for me, I just need to be careful when I apply the lip tint.
After using these lippies for almost the entire month of February, I can confidently say that they’ve lived up to my expectations and they are absolutely to die for! All the colours had felt very suitable for specific mood but they are also suitable for every occasion. I wore it on my Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year and other occasions such as a casual gathering or a simple hangout day. On the side note, my boyfie loves the colours as well.
With the exceptional design, compact size, affordable price tag and astounding MLBB colour payout, I really don’t see any reason why I shouldn’t recommend this to anyone. However, because lippies are a very experimental area for me (i.e.: I want to try all the items from every brand possible so the commitment to repurchasing the same particular item is not possible for me), I think I won’t repurchase but if I really miss it, I will definitely purchase #4 Marron Cream. It’s really my favourite colour. I will definitely want to try a new lippie if Althea releases another one though.
Colour shade: 100% MLBB
Colour Payoff: ✨✨✨✨✨
Repurchase: Absolutely Yes but only if I miss it.
Reason: There are way too many lip tints out there for me to try so I wanna try them out first but because these are really good -and I really think I’ll miss using them- I’ll definitely repurchase again.
