Lip tints/stain are cosmetic coloring agents, used popularly to add a hint of natural color to the lips and cheek, and are generally water-based. These bear a lightweight formula in comparison to all other lip products and rarely add gloss or shine. Lip tints unlike lipsticks and gloss, appear very natural on the lips. They are also hydrating as these tend to be aqua/gel formula, unlike lipsticks which primarily contain wax and oil. Though color-infused formula is the most popular, these also come in roll-on, or with sponge-tip applicator.
Lip tints are generally the most hydrating and hence take some time to dry down and settle on application, while the newer formulations these days also come with a certain volume of alcohol addition to make the dry down time quick. These tints generally come in very few and natural shades unlike lipsticks, as their very purpose is to add that natural flushed sheen. Tints also have an added advantage of being long-lasting and can be used in multiple ways.
Nature Republic is a South Korean natural cosmetics brand and is into producing a host of skin care and cosmetic products inspired and formulated with ingredients close to nature. With products even extending for men, this brand has almost every Korean formulation to offer. The product that I would be reviewing today is the Triple volume tint in the shade “06 Rose” (NM7964).
By Flower Triple Volume Tint 06 Rose is a Vivid + Glossy + Long-lasting 3-in-one volume tint that provides volume, and a glossy effect by supplying radiant colors to dull looking lips.

My Experience with Nature Republic By Flower Triple Volume Tint 06 Rose:
This made in Korea product comes in a simple recyclable cardboard box which holds the 4 gm tube. Holding this box itself feels promising, and the promise of volume tint, just adds to the excitement. The packaging appears pretty basic in off-white and green color with the entire list of ingredients and directions to use printed in English. Among the ingredients, water appears first, though it has good amount of alcoholic constituents as well and the shade is basically attributed by the raspberry and blueberry fruit extract apart from sweet almond oil. The circular tube which holds the product appears metallic to feel, and yet is lightweight and travel-friendly. The small slit in the tube ensures the color and quantity of the product becomes visible.
I got my hands on this tint; thanks to U.S. based cousins traveling, and have been using this non-stop for over a week now. Coming from a dry and chapped lips family, using an alcohol tint with no lip balm base was a big decision to take. But it just happened accidentally due to shortage of time, and only did it dawn on me later, that I have no lip balm and yet my lips feel nice and hydrated! The color though appears dark on the doe-foot applicator, the tint itself is quite light and natural and suits my medium skin tone very well. On application, you do feel a mild tingling and cooling sensation, and the product spreads very evenly and well. A single application gives good enough of a color and the product dries within seconds of application. I did feel my lips to be a bit plumped up, but nothing major.
The stay power of the tint is amazingly good. Though the color did become light after about 3 hours post application, the tint did stain my lips till I used my remover at the end of the day. Priced at 11.99$, this product is definitely on the affordable side in comparison to all other lip tints available in the market. Coming from an eco-friendly brand, this tint is definitely worth a try!
