One Editor Tried the Lipstick-to-Lip Tint TikTok Hack and Here’s What Happened
I’ve been skeptical about TikTok beauty hacks in the past, but am usually pleasantly surprised at how well they turn out. In the latest makeup video I found, makeup artist Mirta Miler (@mimiermakeup) turns a bold red lipstick into a soft lip tint by applying concealer over her lipstick. “It feels wrong,” Miler jokes in the clip. Once the outline is complete, she blends it out with a makeup sponge to reveal a just-kissed look.

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.
