Missha Ice Drop Tint My Some Coral Review:
Summer’s almost over but Missha still place their latest release, the Ice Drop Tint on their official website main page. I don’t need another lip tint but with the cute design, promising claims, and colorful shades selection, I can’t resist and finally purchased one of the 5 shades.
Ice Drop Tint is described as a tint with smooth texture and hydrating yet long lasting at the same time. If it’s true to its claim, then I’ll be so happy since it’s a bit hard to find a hydrating and long lasting tint since most of the hydrating one tends to wear off faster than the matte one.
If you love colorful, summer-y vibe lip color, I’m sure you will like this tint’s shade range. They only has 5 but all of those are so bold and bright, the type of colors you would want to wear on summer. It may be too bright for some people but among those 5 shades, there are two shades that I think is still wearable for daily uses (even if it’s not summer).
+ My Some Coral color gives a exotic summer color performance.
+ It hydrates the lips with enriched moisture once put the tint on.
+ With a smooth texture let you apply it evenly on the lips and give a long lasting color performance.
+ With lavender to give soothing effect, jojoba oil for extra moisture, hyaluronic acid to hydrate.

Missha Ice Drop Tint My Some Coral Review:
This tint comes in a short and chubby packaging but actually it contains 4gr of product which is pretty average for a lip tint.
I really love the design it has on the box and bottle, in my opinion it screams ‘cool feeling on the summer’ so much and I think that’s exactly what Missha wants to portray this tint as they claim that it has soothing effect as well.
For the texture, I’m surprised to see how thick and moussey the texture is. From what I remember, the picture on Missha’s website shows that this tint has a bit shine so I don’t expect for it to have a matte finish. Because it’s too thick, it can be a little bit too messy especially if you have small and thin lips like I do.
With the short packaging, they also has a short wand applicator. I have no problem with the short wand but I don’t like the doe-foot itself. It has a flat shape with a rounded tip and it’s so hard for me to make a precise line with this applicator. It doesn’t reach the corner part of my lips and since it has thick texture, it becomes twice more difficult in achieving a perfect lip application.
For the scent, I really like it. It has a sweet fruity scent and I still can’t get which fruit it is (my guess is it’s either an apricot or a peach but I’m not sure) but the scent is really strong! If you are not a fan of scented product, better avoid this tint. When I open the lid, the scent hit my nose instantly and it lingers for a few more minutes after I applied it on the lips.
From the 5 shades, I picked one of the 2 most wearable shades, My Some Coral. Just from its name everyone sure think it’s a coral shade but it’s not coral at all. On the picture, the color looks like a true orange shade and when I swatch it on my hand, it looks like a deep neon orange shade but in real life, it’s more like a tangerine orange shade with a hint of white undertone in it.
My complexion doesn’t look good with anything with white undertone in it so I guess I choose the wrong shade. I suggest you to search the reviews about this tint first before you buy it so you can see what the color will look like in real life, without any editing.
The pigmentation is pretty good. You don’t need too many layers but if you have even a slightest dry patch on the lips, this tint won’t look good at all. I don’t have a severe dry lips and I always moisturize my lips first before applying any lip product but still, it sinks into my lines and emphasis my dry parts.
The application isn’t going well as well. The moussey texture makes it too slippery and it’s really patchy! I think it’s my first time to try a lip tint that makes my lips look this patchy. To achieve a smooth finish, I have to wipe the excess product and wear the tint very thinly and spread the color with my finger. I think the warmth from finger helps melting the product a bit to blend better.
It’s not transfer-proof (in fact, it does transfer everywhere) but the lasting power is average even with eating and drinking. It leaves a hint of orange stain but it also makes my lips feel very dry after hours of wearing it. At the end of the day, my lips are so blotchy and I can see dry skin peeling here and there all over my lips so I don’t agree with what Missha claim as ‘hydrating and soothing’.
I’m really sorry Missha, but I think this tint is one of my least favorite tints I’ve ever tried. It does opposite things from what they claim and for the price, I won’t recommend it for you to try. Especially for the price, I think it’s too expensive for this tint and not worth the quality.
