[REVIEW] Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Light & Intense

Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Light & Intense Review:

I’ve been loving the renewed version of the Mamonde tint color balms, both light (glossy finish) and intense (velvet matte finish). These balms have been really popular in South Korea and other parts of Asia due to its affordability and high quality. It also contains more product than an average lipstick which is definitely worth the money.

The shade range is spectacular, there are various shades of n*des, pinks, corals and reds (including brick reds and burgundy). The new version promises high adherence without drying out lips, convenience and true to color. They come in a twist up tube for easy application without a hassle. Korean actress Park Shin Hye has also endorsed in Mamonde’s lip products, which caused a hype for these amazing lip crayons. She had used it in several Korean dramas and it looked wonderful on her!

Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Light & Intense Review:

I purchased a variety of shades to add to my collection, however the ones that I swatched are my favorites and have been my go-to lately. I must say, they exceeded my expectations – I did not think that these would be part of my holy grail stash!

First off, the formula for both is amazing without a doubt. Instead of using a lip gloss for my chapped lips, the light balms do not highlight the flakiness of my lips, particularly in winter. They are extremely pigmented and hydrating, that also leaves a beautiful stain on the lips even after eating.

A little goes a long way, I often find myself smudging the tints to form a gradated look, however they are easily buildable to create a more vibrant look without feeling too heavy.

As for the intense balms, the formula is something I’ve never tried before. They are very different from the usual tints that I have, such as Peripera’s Ink the Velvet and Ink Airy, which require getting your fingers a little bit messy during application. The Mamonde intense balms, on the other hand, go on smooth and velvety and it does not feel like you have any product on your lips! How cool is that.

The shades that I have swatched are 02 Peach Pop (light), 09 Red Brown (light), 15 Velvet Coral (intense), 11 Velvet Red (intense).

Mamonde Creamy Tint Color Balm Light & Intense Swatches

Peach Pop: A light glossy finish with a hint of orange/peach tint, wearable for every occasion.

Red Brown: A pigmented glossy shade with a hint of brown mixed with red, great for a night out!

Velvet Coral: Semi matte finish, a muted beige/coral shade that completes a summer look.

Velvet Red: Semi matte finish, this soft matte red enhances a fuller lip, without being overly drying.

There is no noticeable scent on this lip product, which I appreciate as most Korean liptints contain a sweet fragrance taste that can be too overwhelming at times.

Also, with the twist up tubes you will not struggle with stained fingers. Similar to the light version, the intense balms are easily buildable that expresses a nice even finish. What I like about these the most is that they stain for a long time, even longer than the light balms.

I’ve once finished an entire meal at a sushi place without having to reapply after. Although they settle down to a matte finish, they are definitely not drying, however I would recommend lip balm if you are prone to getting dry lips throughout the day.

I do not have insane chapped lips, but lip balm helps with the application to be smoother and more moisturizing. Sometimes I layer both light and intense, they work really well together!

Undeniably, these are an upgrade from the old school style of lip tints as they tick of all the boxes of what I expect in a lip product. A good range of shades for every skin tone, value for money and no patchiness or uneven application.


Light weight
Easy application compared to traditional tints (with wands)
Not drying


Unfortunately, none and I highly recommend everyone to check these out!
