Review: Innisfree Creamy Tint Lipstick

Hello :3

Today I will be reviewing the Innisfree creamy tint lipsticks :D. I decided against buying my typical colours (baby pinks, nude colours, etc.), and went for some bolder colours instead.


Description
A highly pigmented, long-lasting moisture lipstick that delivers rich colour in a stroke (taken from the lipstick casing). It contains camellia oil and safflower oil to keep your lips hydrated and soft. It does not contain any animal products, talc, or benzophenone. I'm not sure what the other ingredients are since the box is in hangul, and the item description doesn't include the ingredients.


((taken from innisfree.co.kr))

These are the ones I bought:
★ #1 Flower Buds Pink
★ #4 Cocktail Orange
★ #10 Raspberry Red

They also come in:
★ #2 Cocktail Pink
★ #3 Dreamy Orange
★ #5 Sunshine Red
★ #6 Apricot Blossoms
★ #7 Pale Pink
★ #8 Flower Festival
★ #9 Dandelion Coral

Some sites also have new additional colours (available on koreadepart):
★ #11 Summer Orange
★ #12 Wind Coral
★ #13 Flower Pink
★ #14 Peach
★ #15 Apple Red

1, 2, 4, 5 are probably the most popular picks~




The packaging is made of recycled paper, and the information is printed with soy ink, so the packaging is eco friendly ^^.




The lipstick smells like candy, kind of like those candy necklaces LOL. It smells so good! Kudos to Innisfree for giving it a nice scent instead of the typical lipstick scent.


I used Kiehl's lip balm (free with my purchase ftw) under each swatch so they all have a shiny finish. Vaseline would also yield the same results ^^.

Flower Buds Pink and Cocktail Orange are really pigmented and true to the colour on the bottom of the case. Raspberry Red appears lighter than its bullet colour, and is more comparable to a mauve pink. Perhaps it's the lip balm that lightens up the colour, but I think it makes it a lot more wearable for the summer months. It only takes one application to get a good amount of colour on your lips. They leave a stain after fading out, so you will need to use a make-up remover to remove it completely.

Tips for using it:
  1. Dot the colour on your lips, and blend it out with your finger or a lip brush if you want a more sheer colour
  2. Apply a lip liner first for a more precise shape, and then fill it in with the lipstick
  3. Mix it with a neutral shade to tone it down
  4. Apply it in the inner part of your lips, on top of a nude colour to create the gradient effect
  5. Apply lip gloss or something with petroleum jelly in it to give your lips more dimension
  6. Mix it with a foundation/tinted moisturizer/BB or CC cream/etc. so you can use as a wearable blush (taken from the Innisfree website's diagram). 
Here is the link to the creamy tint lipstick page on the Innisfree website so you can browse through their reviews and find swatches, since I couldn't find reviews/swatches for many of the less popular choices (it's around the bottom of the page, they have leaves for their ratings). There are quite a number of reviews where the blogger shows multiple swatches of each colour. Although they're true to colour, it's definitely helpful to see complete swatches of the lipsticks.

Innisfree also has lip tints (Innisfree Vivid Tint Rouge) with the same/similar colours~

Pros
+ Long lasting
+ True to colour
+ Nice scent (like candy)
Does not dry out your lips
+ Lightweight

Cons
- None

Rating: ★★★★★

Where to buy? I bought them from f2plus1 for $12.69USD, which is like ~$13CAD once converted. Here is the link for them~ You can also find then on almost any online store that sells Innisfree products!

Would I repurchase? Yes, I think they are worth their price because the quality is really good. They have great colour pay-off, and I love the scent. The simple packaging is also a plus. I might go back for the lighter colours eventually :>

What do you think of the creamy tint lipsticks? What's your favourite lip product at the moment?
