EGLIPS Velvet Fit Tint Cream Cheese 06 Fig Cheese Review:
Eglips is one of the most well-known Korean (indie) brands internationally. I always see everyone hyping their lip and eye products, even there are tons of Korean and non-Korean beauty bloggers who review and show color swatch of their products. I want to try their lipstick but since the price is a bit high in my country, I never bought it.
Until I saw they came out with a new Velvet Tint for their new series, the Cream Cheese series. Just from the name itself it already caught my attention but sadly, it’s hard to find the claim, description, and other information in English for this tint. If you understand Korean, you can check their official website.
Not only the name, the shade range is also interest me. There are 5 shades and 3 of them are bright colors while the other 2 are more neutral. On the picture it shows that this tint looks so pretty for making a gradient lips so I choose shade 06 which I think look the prettiest among those 5 shades. But if you see closely, shade 06 and 07 looks so similar so I suggest you to search reviews on YouTube to see the difference between those 2.

EGLIPS Velvet Fit Tint Cream Cheese 06 Fig Cheese Review:
When I saw the tint for the first time, the packaging is a bit underwhelming. On their website they show so much cute and ‘delicious-looking’ advertisement pictures so I thought the packaging would be really cute but I was wrong. The bottle didn’t have any design on it and to be honest I hope they could at least make the packaging looks more eye-catching (let’s be real, girls love cute and pretty packaging!).
It has a simple doe-foot as its applicator but the tip is too round for me to achieve a perfect lip application. The applicator is good to spread the tint on my lips but because of its shape, it’s a bit hard to apply the tint precisely especially if you have small or thin lips. It can pick up too much product as well so I suggest you to wipe the applicator first to remove some of the excess tint if you don’t want to the tint look too thick on your lips.
For its scent, I can smell a hint of salty-sweet scent, almost like a cake scent. My friend who smelt it too said that it has a similar scent to a cheesecake so I think maybe Eglips makes the tint with this scent to match its name. It’s not too noticeable though, you will smell it once you apply the tint but after a few seconds the scent will be gone.
The shade 06 Fig Cheese is the most neutral shades in the collection. It is a deep coral shade with red undertone and I thought it will look too red on my skin tone but it’s not. On my complexion, this shade looks like a pretty deep and warm coral. It’s definitely not a neutral or calm color for me but it’s wearable enough.
I think every skin tone will look pretty wearing this type of shade. It’s the shade you can call as ‘the universal shade, means that even though it can look different on various skin tones yet will still look pretty.
The texture is more moussey than I expected. I thought it would be like a creamy – velvet type but actually it has a similar texture to a whip cream. Usually with this kind of texture, it’s easy to blend and last longer on my lips.
Thanks to its texture, it’s very easy to make a gradient lips! If you see my gradient lip swatch picture, I apply the tint on the centre of my lips then smack my lips together for a few times. That’s how easy it is to make a beautiful gradient lips.
Even though it feels light and comfortable on my lips, I still have to apply lip balm first before applying this tint or it will sink into my dry patches. Actually no matter how moisturizing or comfortable a lip product is, you still have to prepare your lips first to avoid your lips become dry. This tint doesn’t make my lips dry even after hours of wearing but it has average lasting power.
The tint lasts on me (without eating) for 3 – 4 hours but fortunately it fades evenly from the inner part to the outer part so it doesn’t make my lips look patchy and dry. But when I eat something oily, the oil will remove the tint right away which I think almost every lip products in the world is weak against oil.
To reapply, you don’t have to remove the layer underneath because it still look pretty even on top of it but if you are the type who prefer to wear a lip product on a freshly-cleaned lips, then you can use a gentle wet tissue to remove all the excess tint on your lips then reapply it.
Will I purchase another shade in the future? I don’t think so. Even though it has good qualities, I do think I have other lip tints with better performance and better lasting power with more affordable price (but this tint is pretty affordable as well!). If you are curious and still want to try it, please do so!
I think many people will love this tint because of how comfortable it is on the lips. If only it has better shade range and lasting power, I will definitely get myself another one. I hope Eglips will release another set of shades!
