3CE Tattoo Lip Tint Luztic Review:
I am not a biggest fan of lip tint, even I hated their textures and prefer liquid lipsticks because of the pigmentation but recently I got a chance to try several lip tints from Korean brands and to be honest I love almost all of them! That’s why I decided to try other popular lip tints on the market.
This time I purchased another lip tint from 3CE, Tattoo Lip Tint. I’m so intrigued by the name and at first I thought it would be like a peel off lip lip tint since it has ‘Tattoo’ as its name but I was wrong. It’s actually to claim that it is very long lasting and will stay all day on the lips but with glossy finish and non-drying on the lips.
+ A moisture-rich lip stain with an elastic texture that adheres closely to lips like no other tints and delivers long-lasting color, keeping the lips looking gorgeous all day.
+ A lip gloss for high-gloss, glass-like finish or a subtle sheen with special collaboration package.
+ Infused with Shine Oil Complex derived from 11 kinds of plants conditions and softens the lips for a full day without dry.
+ Apply to lips using the built-in soft applicator.
+ Can be worn alone or layered over your favorite lipstick for further luster and color expression.

3CE Tattoo Lip Tint Luztic Review:
The design of the packaging is very cute all pink with a red melting heart design on the center. It has different vibe with other 3CE lip products. The bottle is not as tall as the Velvet Tint and it’s made from plastic. It comes in a pink box and as usual, you can find out if your lip tint is real or fake by looking for a hologram sticker on the box. I usually rip the box apart before throw it away so someone can’t use the box to make a fake product.
They have 5 shades and honestly for me the shades looks so similar with each other. Most of the shades are reds and pinks with one orange shade but on the lips, I can’t see the difference. I got myself the shade Luztic because they describe it as a red-orange shade. I love it when lip color has orange tone in it and since I don’t use red lipstick (because red lip color intimidates me), a red-orange shade is my better option because it’s more wearable and I can use it daily.
When I swatch it on my hand, it looks like a perfect shade for me but when I apply it on the lips, I’m a little bit disappointed that the shade looks more like a cherry red than an orangey-red. That’s why I can only use it for making a gradation lips because if I wear it on full lips, it’s too red for my liking.
The first thing I usually do when opening a lip product is sniff the applicator to know if there’s any scent or not. With this one, I find it has plastic and chemical scent which is not my favorite. It’s not too obvious though, as long as you don’t get the applicator near your nose, you won’t smell it at all.
The applicator has an S-shape and I think I’ve never seen an applicator like it. It’s made to hug lips perfectly and it’s really work so well in applying the tint. It makes the lip tint distributes the pigment evenly on my lips without any patchiness. I really love the applicator.
The pigmentation is very good! One swipe and it can cover up my whole lips. The formula is thin because it has water as its base and it’s easy to blend. It layers nicely and doesn’t look patchy at all. The finish is really glossy, just as they claim but while it looks so pretty on the lips, it transfers everywhere, even on the teeth!
Everytime I smile, the color will stain my teeth so I have to be extra careful and try not to smile widely while wearing this lip tint. A way to avoid this mess is by blotting my lips every time I apply a new layer of this tint but it makes the pigmentation fades a little bit.
Not only it effects the pigmentation, blotting will absorb the glossiness and makes the tint looks matte. I find it’s very annoying because I really love the glossy finish and the pigmentation but I can’t have it if I want my teeth looks clean.
They claim that this lip tint will stay all day without making the lips feel dry but I don’t think so. It fades faster than my 3CE Velvet Lip Tint and after hours of wearing, my lips feel more dry compared to when I apply it for the first time. The good things are it doesn’t sink into my lips’ fine lines and doesn’t emphasis my dry area.
I don’t think I’ll repurchase it but if they make it with a more transfer proof or at least a transfer-resistant formula, I may give it another chance.
