Make Up And Hair (MUAH) - The Saem Saemmul Real Tint in Pink

by - October 19, 2015

It's sad to realize that I still haven't gained my momentum in blogging but I'm very hopeful that in the next few days, 3-to-4-posts-a-week habit will be back.  Let's just take it slow, guys.  There's really no pressure anyways.

One way to warm up the engine is to do my product review backlogs and here's one of them.

I'm a lip-tint-over-lipstick kind of gal (I think I'll also love matte liquid lipsticks once I try them out) as you might have probably known.  I always wanna have different types of formula in my stash just for variety.  So after finishing a tube of Etude House Dear Darling, I immediately looked for another gel-ish tint.

This is one of the cheapest I saw and I haven't tried anything from The Saem so I thought I'd give it a shot.

It's housed in a usual lip tint packaging and comes with a doe-foot applicator.


I picked the pink shade over orange and red.  Actually, I find it as a red-pink color and sometimes, it's hard to tell if it really gives a pink hue.  There's not much difference I guess.

In terms of intensity, I do like the pigmentation.  If Tony Moly Delight Tony is the most vibrant of all the ones I tried so far, this is a runner up.  However, this still wins against Etude House Dear Darling.  Scroll down for the swatch comparison.


It's very forgiving to apply provided that you blend away immediately.  It will give you "harsh edges" otherwise.  It also doesn't go anywhere outside the lips since it's not too watery.  


It glides pretty smoothly on lips and on skin.  I don't find it overly drying but I also like prepping and topping my lips with balm.  It didn't give me irritations as well when I use it on my cheeks.


It gives an intense stained effect for hours but the color fades as you wet your lips.  On the cheeks, one application almost survives one whole day as long as you don't touch up with powder or face makeup with too much coverage.  

Similar with other tints, it would cling better on bare skin or lips.  

As a cheek stain, I like it better than Delight Tony because it dries out slightly longer, giving me more time to blend the product evenly.

See the youthful, pinched-cheek effect?

I'm REALly impressed with The Saem's REAL Tint!  It works great on cheeks and it's easy to do gradient lips with it as well.  Even though Delight Tony still wins in the pigmentation department, not a big deal for me as it still gives a nice amount of color and convenience in terms of application (Don't get me wrong.  It's still intense guys!).

This is definitely for keeps!  

One problem though is availability since it's not being sold here in the Philippines.  But let me know if you're interested to try this tint or any The Saem products.  I'd be happy to help. :)

Oh and one last tip before I end this post...

If you think the finish makes your lips look so dry, you can top it off with a colorless lip gloss or lip balm.  

What do you think?

your sweetest drug,
