Lip tint: how to use? 6 options for you to know!

You may have heard of lip tint: the product, which is super hot, works as a dye for the lips, providing a light and translucent color, softer than a lipstick.This type of product is indicated to give a natural color to the mouth, creating an effect of naturally colored lips. Some versions can also be used as blush and even eyeshadow.Its liquid texture, similar to a food coloring, allows to create a natural finish and build different levels of intensity. Because of this proposal, lip tint usually comes in warm colors, such as red, peach and pink.

The Bleeza team tested six options of national and imported lip tints to help you choose. Come see what we think!

Benetint Benefit

  • Available colors : Rose (red);
  • Average price : from R $ 100 *.

The Benetint was launched in the 1970s and became the flagship of the brand. Classified by Benefit as a “red liquid dye”, it can be used on the lips and cheeks.

According to the brand, the product promotes “natural finish, light coverage that can be intensified”. In addition, the brand promises that it is long lasting and does not smudge. It has a precise applicator that slides on the lips and texture that is easy to spread “for an incredible look in seconds and kiss-proof”.

To apply, you need to use the brush to deposit some droplets and spread with your fingers. It is also possible to spread with the applicator itself. One layer is enough to cover the lips, but you can apply a second hand to reinforce the color.

Lip tint Safi Tint Sapphire  

  • Available colors: there are 5 different colors ranging from purple (named florzinha, nº 01), red (amorzinho, nº 02), pink (lindinha, nº 03), orange (sweet, nº 04) and mouth color (caring, nº 05);

This lip tint is very easy to apply, since it has an applicator similar to the enamel brush with soft and flexible bristles.

The texture is extremely liquid and absorption is instant. The sensation on the lips is very light and sometimes I even forgot that the product was applied. 

Another point worth mentioning is that the tested color (affection, nº06) looks great on all skin colors. That is, it is a product that anyone can use. 

If I were to change anything, I would change the packaging (which is now square and with a black lid) and make small changes to the label (mainly the font size).  

When I saw it for the first time, inside a store, the product was with the nail polishes. So it took me a while to understand that inside the bottle there was a substance to pass through the mouth and not on the nails.

At the time, I didn’t know what lip tint was and I had to ask the attendant, since the label does not contain any information of this type.  


  • The colors are beautiful and very intense; 
  • The applicator is good and practical;  
  • The price is very affordable; 
  • Can be used as a blush or eyeshadow. 

Negative points: 

  • If used in excess, it can stain your teeth and tongue; 
  • It doesn’t last long; 
  • The smell and taste are too strong; 
  • The packaging can be confused with other products (like enamels).
