In my recent Innisfree order I picked up two of these Eco Flower Tints that had been sitting on my wish list. They offer five different shades in this line, each named after flowers, and I grabbed the reddish pink Rose and vibrant orange Calendula. Innisfree carries three different liquid tint formulas and the Eco Flower Tint advertises a moisturizing cream texture, which definitely appeals to me because I have chronically dry lips!
I like Innisfree’s packaging in general, and these are in lightweight but sturdy plastic tubes. The color of the tube reflects the shade, but the flower stickers on the top are a nice touch. The applicators are nice and narrow and slightly tapered toward the end, so they don’t hold a ton of product but are extremely precise and I think they’re a breeze to use.
I’m not sure the texture is one that I’d think to call a cream, but it isn’t fully a watery liquid, either. It feels really thin on the lips and is able to go on in a sheer layer or can be layered to build vibrant color.
There’s a little bit of a scent (floral, maybe?) but it’s pleasant enough and I kind of have to get my nose into the tube to really smell it. There’s also a light but pleasant sweet flavor to these that disappears once they dry on the lips. I don’t have any issues with streaks or patchiness and the tint dries down pretty quickly. If I add one or two layers then I do think they add a little moisture to lips, and at the very least they aren’t drying. The only time I notice a hint of dryness is when I apply a lot of layers, but even then it’s not that bad. I can also add lip balm on top without messing with the longevity of the stain. Speaking of longevity, I find that these do wear a nice, long time through sipping a beverage and don’t transfer, but they don’t survive through eating a meal. Fading over time occurs pretty evenly, so I find these to be really easy to wear.
I have naturally reddish-toned lips and so a color like Rose is really easy for me to wear. A light layer or two gives me even color and a pretty, rosy boost to my natural lip color, but it can definitely be built up further. This is something I can wear all the time. Love.
Because my lips have a fair amount of color on their own, getting a solid orange tint requires a bit of layering. One layer on its own looks more like a wash of watercolor, and here I’m wearing more like three layers.
After applying Calendula, I tried to wipe it off my lips and add lip balm. A little bit of the color came off, but not much. It’s still noticeable color, for sure, but I just wanted to show you the difference.
Knowing that I like these, I would consider picking up an additional shade or two from the Eco Flower Tint line in the future. I’m not sure if I’d try the other two tint products from Innisfree (Eco Fruit Tint and Vivid Tint Rouge) just because the creamier Eco Flower formula is probably the one that’s best suited for my drier lips. If you’re interested, keep an eye out for Innisfree’s buy-one-get-one-free deals, which is what convinced me to purchase these two shades together when I made my order.
