A’Pieu Kissable Tint Stick Review

Let me just start by saying that now that I’ve tried the A’Pieu Kissable Tint Sticks ($15), I am kicking myself for waiting so long to try one of the many jelly sheer lip colors that are so popular in Korea right now. Most self -respecting Korean brands have some sort of version of this, which is a gel-like lip color that’s sheer and moisturizing like a gloss, but goes on like a lipstick. I mistakenly assumed that these were geared toward a younger audience.

Well, I was wrong. This things are the jam. I don’t know if they’re all this amazing because the A’Pieu Tint Stick is the first one I’ve tried, but if they are, I’m in trouble. The colors look a little scary in the tube – in fact, I’d say they’re just about neon. But once it’s on your lips, it’s the perfect wash of color. They’re ideal for days when you want to look effortlessly glamorous – you know – like, “Oh, my lips? These old things? Yeah, I guess you’re right. They are luscious and beautiful, aren’t they? I hadn’t noticed!”

I’m also a big fan of how not sticky these are. Normally, the amount of moisture these provide comes with a price, but not so where A’Pieu Tint Sticks are concerned. They definitely provide plenty of moisture – on par with a few of my lip balms, actually. I got about 3 hours of wear out of it before I needed to touch up, and that was with normal talking and drinking.

Before - my lips with nothing on them.

I’ll be picking up more of these in additional colors. I am also excited to try some from other brands. I know Etude house makes several, and TonyMoly has some versions of this type of product as well.

I bought mine at W2Beauty, which is my Korean cosmetics retailer of choice. There are also a couple of them on eBay!

 

Skin & Tonics Rating:

Performance: 4/5 – Beautiful color, very moisturizing. They do need to be reapplied often throughout the day.

Quality: 4/5 – Cute, sturdy containers, ingredients seem to be high-quality with this brand.

Value: 5/5 – At $15, these are priced little higher than drugstore, but significantly lower than department store. You do get a lot of product for the price!

Overall: 4.4/5
