Tony Moly Magic Lip Tint Review

For this post I am going to do a review on Tony Moly's Magic Lip Tint my sister bought while she was in Korea. Magic Lip Tint is basically a colour changing lip gloss. There are three flavours to choose from which is Strawberry, Grape and Green Apple. My sister got the Grape flavoured Magic Lip Tint. 

The Magic Lip Tint comes in a small thick clear plastic tub with a black screw on plastic cap. The packaging is very sturdy. Looks very simplistic and classy with only the letters of Tony Moly printed on the black cap. There a label on the bottom of the tub with Korean writings (which I don't understand, of course). I am presuming it is the name of the product and company's info.

The Grape Magic Lip Tint has a very thick and sticky jelly texture (think very thick jelly). It has a nice sheer purple colour and made me think of grape jelly. It was quite hard to break the surface initially but once broken into, it was easier to get a little bit of the jelly onto my finger. The scooped out tint felt a little bit like a hybrid between jelly and jam. It spreads easily but felt like spreading a very thick gloss on my lips.

I've successfully made a big dent on the pristine purple jelly surface. hee.. hee..
Looks like grape jam doesn't it?

As you can see, the Magic Lip Tint goes on clear but changed into a fuchsia pink. It was quite all right when swatched on the back of my hands but it really turned into shockingly fuchsia pink on my lips. It looked nice on my sister though. I guess it really depends on the pigment of the person's lips who's wearing it.
The Magic Lip Tint has smells a really nice scent of grape but the taste... ewwww! It has a not so nice taste when I accidentally licked my lips while wearing this. It actually tastes quite bitter to me as opposed to the lovely scent of grape it has.

My verdict: I didn't like the shade the Magic Lip Tint turned into on me but since it goes on all right with my sister, I think she digs it and I didn't. I also didn't really enjoy having a bitter tasting lippie on my lips. I wouldn't repurchase this.
