Lip tints are one of my favorite double duty products. They moisturize like a lip balm and add sheer color to your lips. Personally, I like to keep them in my purse for quickly touching up my look and using them for those “no makeup” makeup days.
To be honest, when you do not use items with beeswax a good tinted lip product is hard for find. I have used a few shades of the Pacifica Color Quench Lip Tints in the past and loved them. When they sent me the Color Quench Natural Lip Trio, I was so excited. The colors are perfect for fall and winter. This set contains the shades Coconut Nectar, Sugared Fig, and Guava Berry.
Coconut Nectar is a brownish nude shade. If you are looking for a lip tint that looks very natural, this is the one for you. The color is very subtle. It smells just like fresh coconut! I also loved using this shade as a base for lipsticks as it kept my lips moisturized and created a base for other colors.
Sugared Fig is a deep purple tint. I love this shade! It is so pretty and is an easy way to work the dark lip trend into your look. The tint of this color is a couple of shades darker than my natural lip color. Sugared Fig is the most tinted of the trio and can be built into a darker shade with a couple of layers.
Guava Berry is a lovely pink berry shade. This is my favorite shade from this trio. It makes my lips about a shade darker than they are normally and has a fruity scent. It is also a great option for those who are on the fence about darker lips and berry shades. The color is light and buildable, so you can work your way into a darker color.
The ingredients for all three shades are: cocos nucifera (coconut) oil, glycine soja (soy) wax, euphorbia cerifera (candelilla) wax, theobroma cacao (cocoa) seed butter, persea gratissima (avocado) oil, natural flavor [flavor], vitamin E, rosmarinus officinalis (rosemary) leaf extract. May contain: mica, titanium dioxide, iron oxide, silica.
Overall, I really loved this trio. All of the shades were very pretty in the tube and on my lips. The formula is very moisturizing and really helped my lips feel hydrated for hours after application. As a bonus, the tubes are also made from recyclable packaging!
