One Editor Tried the Lipstick-to-Lip Tint TikTok Hack and Here’s What HappenedSeptember 09, 2021
I could barely believe my eyes so I searched for another video from Kaitlin Kistler (@kkmichellebeauty) who also had amazing results. After seeing these successful tests, I couldn’t wait to try this lipstick-to-lip-tint trick for myself.
Spoiler alert: it was not cute. I attempted to recreate the look using both a matte and a satin lipstick with the same result — I ended up with a completely smudged red clown mouth. It was frustrating not to achieve the same gorgeous result, but I think my lips are a bit too thin for this hack to work. Luckily, it’s possible to get a similar look without the mess by using one of the lip tints, below.
Maybelline New York SuperStay Ink Crayon Lipstick
The precise pencil design of this lipstick allows you to concentrate the color on the center of your lips so you can create a perfectly blended, softly pigmented look.
NYX Professional Makeup Powder Puff Lippie Lip Cream
This lightweight lip cream is designed to naturally blur out your lips resulting in a just-kissed appearance thanks to the soft, puffy applicator and the formula’s powdery matte finish.
IT Cosmetics Pillow Lips Solid Serum Lip Gloss
Keep lips moisturized with this serum-lip gloss hybrid. It provides four hours of intense hydration and also gives your lips a light flush of color with a hint of shine.
Lancôme L’Absolu Rouge Drama Ink Liquid Lipstick
For a more high pigment tint, this liquid lipstick from Lancôme is our go-to. The patented curved applicator makes it easier to place the shade exactly where you want it and the semi-matte formula dries instantly so you don’t have to worry about any bleeding.
