아리따움 허니 멜팅 틴트 3호 스트로베리 칩스 Aritaum Honey Melting Tint No.3 Strawberry Chips Review~❤


Hihi everyone! How are you? It's such a nice day outside in England today! (○´∀`○) I took these photos outside in the sun! It was kind of difficult with a cat that likes to sit on my rose paper but I did it! ^-^

Today's review is about the Aritaum Honey Melting Tint in No.3 Strawberry Chips! This product is really popular in Korea! Especially last summer because of the lively, fun colours!

I knew about this lip product for ages but I never bought it because I thought it was just an ordinary tinted lip balm. . . I'm not the only person who thought it too! Many bloggers thought the same but ended up loving it - So I gave in & purchased one!

* The S' stands for the Neon Summer Limited Colour range. There are also four more shades that was part of it but I believe those shades are discontinued now? Because the Aritaum & Cosmetic.Love sites do not sell them anymore. I think S13 & S16 were the most popular neon shades so they just kept those two in. I might be wrong though. I'm sure you can still find the other Neon colours on other stores!

I chose No.3 Strawberry Chips - One of the popular shades!-  because the gorgeous hot pink colour really appealed to me & I rarely experiment with colours like that!
Let's see if it really is as vibrant as it is on the model:-

This liptint did not come in a box; just the tube~! It originally had a seal sticker on it to guarantee its new & hasn't be opened. (。・ω・。)ノ

See what I meant but it looked like a lipbalm? & it's pretty simple with just the text also showing the colour name on the side. The colour of the packaging corresponds to the colour of liptint inside - It makes it easier to find the right shade!
It's small & easy to pop into your purse/pencil case for touch ups! (´ω`) The cap shuts tight with a satisfying loud *click*

The tube is made of  sturdy plastic & is built to hold the liptint in shape to avoid melting/damaging of the bullet.
You twist the tube to extend the product - I love how smooth & quick the twist mechanism is! & the liptint easily retracts! ヽ(゜∇゜)ノ
Don't you hate it when lip products don't go back down? so annoying!

 You get a good amount of product in the tube! 

The bullet is similar to a lip balm but is slanted-flat! The bullet surface is quite big, so people with small lips may have a bit of trouble making a clean application. I take care to apply this so I do not apply lip tint over my lip line.

After wearing more than three times
After using on lips
Close up of the bullet - You can see how creamy/melting the lipstick is. Even though its creamy, the bullet has not lost it's slanted shape due to the structure of the tube~ 

Close ups ●   

The colour in the bullet is a vibrant hot pink! There is no shimmers present in the bullet but look at the glossy shine! <。`ω´。>
Oh! By the way, please be careful not to leave these liptints in the sun or in warm rooms! They will eventually start to go melty & gooey. I took these photos outside in the sun & my liptint started to sweat! 
I put it in the fridge for five minute & it was normal again~ (´・ω・`)

No flash
The lip tint swatches out as bright girly pink with a gorgeous glossy sheen-  No shimmers~! It's such a sweet-innocent shade that can easily be built up for a stronger colour (○´∀`○)
With one swipe of the tint ,the colour is sheer enough for a soft neutral look but still provides a pop of pink! 

It is between a cool tone & warm tone so I think this colour will suit many skin tones! It's not as vibrant swatched out on my hand but is more vibrant on the lips.

When I swatched out the liptint, the formula really did melt to touch & felt so moisturising to apply. It does not pull the skin & when I touch the swatches, it does not feel very tacky/sticky like a lipgloss.

Because its not too sticky, you can apply multiple coats without feeling too heavy/uncomfortable!
Blended out
It's easy to blend out the liptint so its ideal for gradient/natural lip makeup. The product also leaves a slight stain on the skin when it fades but its much more noticeable on the lips.

1 swatch of each
The tint is very comparable to some of my other lip-tint-balms in terms of shine & moisture but it definitely more pigmented! 

Oh gosh, the tint smells absolutely yummy! It's so sweet & fruity ( ´∀`)☆ It doesn't smell like strawberries, I can't think of what it exactly smells like~
It's not overpowering & dissipates on the lips~

1. Gently tap colour along inside of lips.
2. Press & rub lips together for natural gradient lip makeup.

Full intense lip colour
1. Apply appropriate amount onto lips following lip contour.

I loooove using this tint as a gradient look!
I dabbed the tint lightly on the center of my lip & blended out by pressing my lips together. The result was this pretty baby pink gradation!

I only used a little bit of this product for this look & it gave a lovely shine & makes my lips feel moisturised.

I glided one full coat on the tint on my lips. It applied soooo smooth because the tint melts like butter on the surface of my lips. I have naturally ridged lips & the formula of tint fills them in & gives a smooth lip texture - also helped greatly by the beautiful gloss finish 。^▽^。 

The colour with one coat is so pigmented & such a lively candy pink colour! Compared to swatching the tint on my hands, it's a lot more vibrant on the lips! I really did not expect such a bright shade when I swatched it - It really is beautiful.

2 coats
With 2 coats you get this gorgeous lively hot pink colour!! (´ ▽ ` )ノ I loooove this glossy colour result as its not too strong on my full lips. I can pull it off without strong eye makeup! 
But I'd rather wear a full lip of this tint on a day where I were very feminine clothes or am going on. I prefer the gradient lip for everyday - like college~ (´□`)

No flash - just sunlight
I love how moisturising the tint feels! It feels like a good lipbalm without a lipgloss heaviness & is just perfect! Even with two it doesn't not feel heavy or too stick but you can see feel there is a layer on your lips? Does that make sense? - It's not uncomfortable & bonus! No hair get stuck to my lips haha!

Even though the formula is really vibrant & creamy - Sometimes application can look a bit patchy so I take extra patience when applying.

Also though its moisturising, you can see the lip tint clinging to dry patches on my lips ( ;´Д`)I recommend to exfoliate your lips well before using.

No taste~

It's durability is so-so. The gloss fades after about an hour & without food or drink the colour can last up to 4 hours on my lips. . .but even with eating & drinking, the colour doesn't fade entirely - It just goes a bit patchy. The tint does transfer to cups & cutlery but again just goes patchy:-
You will need to touch up after meals~
I find the tint goes after about 4 hours+ but it leaves a moist rosy stain to my lips (which I think is really nice so I do not look like a corpse again (´ ▽ ` )

 Here is the stain left to my lips after the liptint goes~

Gradient makeup
2 coats of tint
I like the gradient look for my lips - What do you think?~

I really love this product!~

I love the beautiful vibrancy of the tint with just one coat! I never expected the colour payoff when I first got it! I love the girly pink colour & how it looks on me. I'm definiately going to try out more pink lip products!
You can easily control the colour intensity - The more you apply the more bright it will be! It really brightens up my complexion & can be pull off with light makeup. I'd recommend colour for all skin tones!

The tint have a melty-moistful formula that melts to touch for smooth application. It's very moistfull & glossy without being too heavy or sticky even with more than one coat

I like how it smooths out ridges but it can clings to dead skin cells so best to exfoliate!~

It has a average durability. The gloss goes after an hour & it goes patchy after eating & drinking but still leaves the lips feel moist. When the tint goes, your lips are stain a rosy colour.

This product has a good affordable price & amaaazing colour payoff & formula - I'm really in love & will buy more Honey Melting Tints - I'd recommend these~!

Reasonable price
Comes in 12 different shades
Simple travel friendly tube
Easy twist up mechanism
Yummy fruit scent - Dissipates after application
No taste
Applies like butter! *0*
Melty-moistful formula- fills in ridges for plump effect
Gives a gorgeous glossy colour finish - So amazed!
Lightweight & not too sticky
Moisturising to lips even after removal
Leaves lip stained & moist - Tint & balm in one!

So-so lasting durability but transfers to cups/cutlery
Accentuates dry lips - Exfoliation needed
The bullet is quite large so those with small lips may find it hard to get perfect application
Keep the tint away from sunlight or warm room - It may melt!

I plan to!! *0* I'm so impressed! I'm going to purchase  Coral Candy & Peach Crumble~

Thank you for reading everyone! I hope you enjoyed this lip review even though I repeated myself a lot! щ(ಥДಥщ)  I hope you give the Honey Melting Tints a try!

Have a lovely day!

Lots of Love~
