You’ve probably seen those Korean popsicle-perfect stained lips on Instagram. It turns out, ‘lip tint’ is about as catch-all a phrase as ‘lipstick’: some lip tints are matte, some are shiny, some are meant to be buffed out, and some leave a stain that lasts all day.

Lip tints belong to a similar category as lip stains. Tints are more vibrant and have long-lasting wear with a lightweight finish. Tints have become a popular sensation in K-beauty because they allow you to create a gradient look by adjusting the concentration of coverage. This trend is also known as an ombre lip. The colour starts out bolder and deeper on the inner layers of the lip and fades out to look lighter towards the edge of the lip. It gives you the illusion of having fuller lips. It’s easy to apply, comfortable, and long-lasting in colour.

We’ve compiled a list of the best K-beauty lip tints to help you find your ideal match.

One of the best parts about Korean lip tints is their affordability. And this specific one is a steal. While it may not have a high price tag, it has a lot going on. The water-gel formula delivers vibrant colour, while fruit extracts keep your pout moisturised. In addition, the popsicle-like packaging is adorable.
