I know I'm so late to post this review. I also know everyone and their moms already reviewed this product. But I actually have been eyeing this Aritaum Wannabe Cushion Tint ever since I saw Rini and Fraulein shared their reviews last year. But back then I was still so into nude lips I couldn't really have the guts to try vibrant lip colors. Only around a month ago I saw this product again and decided to try the Blondie shade. I guess you must be tired seeing another purplish fuchsia lip review? Haha I don't even know why I keep getting similar color everytime I purchase lippies. I think they look pretty ^^
Anyway, let's move on to the review :D
The first thing on my mind when I received this in the mail? Too adorable! I'm a sucker for anything heart shaped and prints, including this one. The packaging is so vibrant with heart prints. It is a 2 in 1 lippie with cushion.
The color is almost similar to my Etude House Minnie Lipstick (cause mine is a different batch and not pale pink like everyone else's). It's like a lip crayon. Just twist the pen to get the lip crayon out. The lip crayon isn't that short like in the pictures, I just didn't twist it to the max.
This is the cushion. It's also nearly similar as Etude House Bling In The Sea eye stick cushion ^^ It's soft and easy to use.
I'm sorry I took the swatch photos on different days and my lip condition is also all different. The first and last photos are half lips using the cushion while the middle photos are full lips. The color is more pink purplish with natural lighting and it looks more vibrant pink with flash. I used concealer on the last picture and the color is more pinkish.
Here is the other available colors, including 11 new released colors.
To be honest, I was wrong the first time I used it. My dry lips look too obvious when I applied this without lip balm, like shown in the first picture. But when I was applying it on my dry lips it was actually very smooth. I like how this cushion tint is highly pigmented and there's no gloss or shimmers. It appears more matte but not drying. Overall, I really like this Aritaum Wannabe Cushion Tint, even though I hate the fact that it accentuates my dry area of lips but it can be solved with lips exfoliating and wearing lip balm before applying this cushion tint. The cushion also helps to achieve more natural look.
