Hey everybody ♥
If you follow me on instagram you might have seen already that I’m up to some new reviews these days. I’ll start of today with the brand Aritaum and their Wannabe Cushion Tints. I just bought myself two of these: one of them is called “Clair” and is a lip concealer, the other one is called “Summer” and is a bright red-orange color.
Aritaum is part of Amore Pacific Group and I discovered it by reading the blog of Mizuchan (click here ♥). I was instantly curious about this lip product, partly because the packaging is really nice, too :D
The Cushion Tint is formed like a pen with two ends. One for the tint/ lip stain and one for the cushion. The packaging of each of the pens is different and they have written their names in golden letters on their caps.
You can use the cushion or sponge applicator in order to blend the lip tint and create a gradient effect on your lips. Below, you can see the swatches for the lip concealer “Clair” and the shade “Summer”, on the right side I blended the red color out with help of the provided cushion.
And here I’ll show you how both products look on my lips. I applied lightly the lip concealer first. Then I added the red color and blended it outwards to create a gradiation effect.
As you can see, I didn’t overdo the color on my lips, because I wanted to create a smooth and natural look and it is really easy to achieve with this pens. I never tried to create a gradiation effect on lips before, but I was really surprised how simple it was. Also, the texture of Aritaum’s Cushion Tints is very light and smooth. It feels nice while wearing. And they have a nice sweet scent, a bit like vanilla and candy mixed together. I would recommend not to overdo the lip concealer if you have dry lips, because it will just look terrible, when it settles into the creases of your lips. Instead I tried only to dab the concealer lightly on my lips and it worked perfectly.
The staying power is as with all lip products good, as long as you don’t drink and eat to much. It still leaves a stain behind after all though.:)
I am completely happy with these two pens and with that product in general. I will totally be buying more of these. There are still 9 other colors to test, and I read that there will be new colors available, too (link).
