Which is better: Lipstick or Lip Tints?


In the early 1900's, people were known to be using Lipstick to enhance the feature and color of the lips. Lip Tints have been introduced to the market recently as they have discovered it recently. Lipsticks are defined as a cosmetic product that adds color, texture, and protection to the lips. Lip Tint is like a type of Lipstick, but the formulation of both products are totally different. Both Lipstick and Lip Tint are cosmetic products for lips. Lipsticks are used for a fuller coverage look, unlike Lip Tints are used for a more natural type of look. Before, when Lip Tints were just starting to make their name in the Beauty Industry, the formulation usually a bit drying, but due to some research and development as well as innovation of resources, they came up with an idea to add a moisturizing ingredient in every Lip Tints to maintain the moisture and hydration of the lips while using Tints. Lipsticks offer a wide-variety of shades, unlike Lip Tints that focus more on naturally looking kinds of colors for the lips, as the main target of Lip Tints is to have natural looking lips. Let us check further the difference between the two products below.

As stated in the table above, it is not that hard to distinguish between both of the products. But we can all agree that both of the products help us enhance our lips. We are not able to identify which would be the better Lip Product to use as it will depend on the preference of an individual. However, if you are aiming for a natural look or just a beginner with make-up, then Lip Tint would be perfect for it as it leaves a natural-matte finish look. On the other hand, if you are aiming for a Glam or Full Make-Up type of look, a Lipstick would fit much better for it.

Koreans were the one to introduce using Lip Tints to everyone as they were aiming for a natural look or what is called "No Make-Up, Make-Up Look". To achieve that goal, they have introduced a lot of ways to apply Lip Tints and also they have formulated their Lip Tints to be a more natural looking finish. With Mishka cosmetics, as we have sourced our Lip Tints' Ingredients from Korea and Japan, we have formulated our product to achieve that type of look. We offer 3 types of Lip Tints, such as, Lip and Cheek Gel, Powder Finished and Premium Matte. We incorporated our aim to bring out the confidence in every woman by offering a World-Class beauty and personal products that would be perfect for all the skin types and all ages. We do not only produce a product that enhances the color of your lips when you wear a product. But we wanted a product that cares within, as we have added special ingredients to our tints so that it will keep the moisture and softness of the lips.
