I always thought that, for sure, I would be a lip gloss/lip tint kind of girl. But, I have to admit, I think I’ve slowly changed sides and am now rooting for lipstick. I even tried out a few different lipsticks from Lancôme and some lip tints from Clark’s Botanicals to test out the pros and cons of each. Now I can proudly say, I am in fact a lipstick fan.
Even though I do like the lip tints and how sheer they are, I love the soft matte feeling of lipstick. I tried out Oh My! Shimmer and Coral Sand by Lancôme and can say that Coral Sand was my favorite – the Oh My! Shimmer was a little too…shimmery for my taste. I did try out the Madge Mauve and Carlotta Pink tints by Clark’s Botanicals, and though they were pretty colors, I’m not really a fan of the wet/shine feeling I have after applying them.
The L’Absolu Nu Coral Sand is on the left (retails at $29.50) and the Color Design Oh My! Shimmer is on the right (retails at $22).
The L’Absolu Nu collection features 16 different shades. The Color Design collection features 20 shades. Doesn’t Lancôme have the classiest lipstick packaging?
The Madge Mauve Lip Tint is on the left (retails at $19) and the Carlotta Pink ($19) is on the right.
The Lip Tint collection by Clark’s Botanicals features two new shades, “Because I Love You” and “Moore Nude.” If you’re a fan of lip tints, you must check these out!
Where do you stand on the lipstick vs. lip tint mini-war?
