Rated 3.9 out of 5 stars
This is a lovely stain, at least on lips; I've not dared try it on my extremely oily, large-pored 58-year-old cheeks.
On lips this tint leaves a very faint almost imperceptible wash of cool light pink. With more layers, it morphs into a fresh and flattering glossy rose pink, imparting a natural-looking "flushed" look that lasts admirably for hours, even through eating and drinking.
You will probably have to reapply a few times during the course of the day, but that's easy enough to do.
What a Tint is a great reasonably-priced cruelty-free option if you want a good versatile tint. This shade is quite cool, so it may not suit absolutely everyone.
Essence seriously needs to offer more shades in this strong product - I'd buy every one of them!
At first I was super excited to use this. I applied it and it was a beautiful color, however I noticed right away that it started tingling. I did ignore it and kept using it for a couple of weeks until one day I just decided not to use it anymore because the tingled got really bad. It has a fragrance but isn't overbearing at all. It doesn't last very long either.

Bled and doesnt come close to the viral tint
zeper from NYC
this one is an obvious dupe for the viral product, and in my opinion it is better because it doesnt have methylparaben like it's counterpart.

Looks super cute on lips or cheeks. Can wear it on bare skin and looks effortless.

I have only tried this on my lips and absolutely loved it. It's the perfect pink and wears well with lip oil over it. Absolutely worth the money! Wish they had more colors.

When I attempt to blend out the cheek tint part I find you have to be VERY quick or it leaves more of a tint in the applied area

Shelby from Virginia
This is an absolute dream product for me! Ive been getting into the whole "no makeup-makeup" look and this ties in so perfectly. I use it on my lips, cheeks, and sometimes on my eyelids to tie a look together with no effort!
savannah from palm beach, fl
the color is so pretty, a rosy pink color with a hint of purple, like a mauve but more vibrant? on the cheeks, it looks pretty and natural, only downside is that you have to blend it really fast after applying but other than that it blends great. i don't like dark lip colors so i only put a little on my lips and it makes the perfect berry lip

I love this formula as a lip stain. I have not tried it on the cheeks and do not intend to. It really does stain the lips and pairs nicely with a gloss on top. It is drying as lip stains tend to be, but it pairs well with a gloss, balm, or oil. Color can also be built up. Excellent stain for the price.
Marissa from California
It came opend. I thought I could look past that because it didnt spill, i was wrong. It is very patchy and dries extremely fast. It dose work good as a lip tint. But if your looking for a cheek tint I wouldn't recommend. The smell is amazing though.

this looks really pretty on the lips and skin, but does anyone else experience it getting in your mouth when you apply it for your lips? it can't be safe. I have to always spit and its red..gross I know but I don't like how easily it gets in my mouth. I'm better off using the ph balm.

This is an excellent product for the lips! Not so much for the cheeks for me but as a lip tint it is truly great and with a lip liner lasts a really long time! LOVE THIS
Payton from Indiana
Its an affordable lip and cheek tint. I prefer to use it only on my lips because i noticed that if you want to use it on your cheeks you have to move quickly otherwise it will leave a streak or line of red that wont blend out. I use this product to line my lips and then i use a nyx fat drip lip oil (i think thats what its called) and it looks really good

i love this product but one thing yall should know is that a little goes a LONG way so dont be putting on like 10 swipes put like 1 or 2!
Krista from Portland
You cannot beat this, especially for the price. It lasts all day, even after multiple chapstick/gloss applications on top. After applying it does tingle a little on my lips, but I wouldnt say it burns at all. It reminds me a little of the sensation a lip-plumping product would provide, so I dont mind. I hope they never stop making this. I want to stock up just to ensure I never run out in case they do.
Cara from MA
This has better ingredients than Benefit's similar version, and I think it gives more color. The applicator brush is also better. With one swipe, my lips are rosy pink. It does dry though, as it's a stain. So just follow-up with lip balm. Perfect.
Mary from Columbus Ohio
If you apply the product on dry / none prepped skin it will not blend and leave a mark but if tour face is hydrated it leaves a beautiful blendable stain !
kenzie from Atlanta, GA

Kay from Lakeland,FL

mel from Corpus Christi Tx
i loved it, makes my lips look naturally pinkish redishhhh loveee. But i didnt like that it faints away quickly you would have to cary it around with you ! Max an hour or two till it faints.

The Essence lip tint gives a beautiful pink tint to ur lips that last a long time!! I wish it was a little less bright pink and more of a red tone but it isn't bad.

Unable to blend out after placing dots on my cheek. Looks like chicken pox. Big fail.
