10 Lip Tints For The Minimal Makeup Enthusiast

By Shammi Mondal 


If the idea of a full coverage lipstick puts you into hesitation, but you also want a pretty hint of colour to your lips, lip tints are your middle ground. A tint will become you best aide in applying amount full colour to your lips, that stays put for a long time, all this while making it look natural.  

Available in various hues, lips tints are one of the most practical, fuss free and user friendly, lip products you might come across. Unlike lipsticks that add a layer on top of your lips, lip tints get absorbed and give a sheer pop of colour.  


Apart from being low maintenance, lip tints are also your ‘on the go’ best friends especially when a full face of makeup might seem like a tedious task.  


With so many textures and colours of lip stains in the market it can get a little overwhelming to find the one you need. Here is a list that will help you navigate the way to the product that ‘stains your heart’


1. Daughter Earth Lip And Cheek Tint

Looking for a creamy lip tint that gives you the best matte finish? We’ve found the answer to that. This sheet finish lip tint is packed with pigment and comes in 12 shades designed specifically to flatter Indian skin tones. What more? It’s also vegan.


2. The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain

The Body Shop Lip and Cheek Stain has three juicy shades that are pigmented, yet moisturising. The buildable formula won’t settle into the crease of your lips, and the doe-foot applicator gives you enough control. We think you’ll also love dabbing it on your cheek for a subtle flush of colour. 


3. The Face Shop Water Fit Lip Tint

While most lip tints are considered long-lasting, the Face Shop Water Fit Tint truly lives up to this claim as it stays put even through a three-course meal. The gel-liquid formula dries down matte but does not soak the life out of your lips. It’s also the perfect choice to create the famous Korean popsicle lip look.


4. Revlon Cushion Kiss Lip Tint

This formula gives a juicy wash of colour without making your lips sticky. It gives your lips the effortless blotted look while keeping them moisturised. The cushion tip imparts the tint evenly on your lips and keeps you from going overboard with the application. 



5. ASA Beauty Lip and Cheek Tint

A clean, vegan formulation with natural ingredients and power packed pigmentation, this creamy product makes sure your lips feel pillow-y soft and melts into your cheeks for a glazed look

6. Renee Madness pH Stick Pink

With the comfort of a lip balm, and a unique formula Renee hits it out of the park. The shade adapts to the pH of your lips to give you the most flattering shade tailored just for you. 



7. Lakme 9 to 5 Lip and Cheek Weightless Mousse

Lakme actually meant 9 to 5 here, with a heavy hit of colour and incredible staying power, this stain is an absolute winner. What truly sets it apart is the lightweight mousse formula that goes on matte. Dab it with your fingers for a sheer finish. 


8. Earth Rhythm Lip and Cheek Tint

Is it a gloss? Is it a stain? The Earth Rhythm tint gives you the best of both with a lightweight oil-based stain, that effectively imparts moisture and colour on to your lips.


9. Iba Must Have Everyday Lip and Cheek Tint

An ideal multitasker for your everyday no makeup look, this weightless, matte cream is surprisingly comfortable. Although the finish is sheer, it still gives a gorgeous colour. Made with natural ingredients, this lip and cheek tint is also halal.


10. MyGlamm Tint It Up Fever

This wearable, my-lips-but-better shade has a thin watery texture that transitions into a matte finish. The first layer might come across as sheer but it’s easily buildable.
