The comeback of the 90's matte lips trend right now doesn't resonate to me. I just don't understand why I'd choose dry matte lips over plump supple puckers. But the usual problem with gloss or creamy lippies is their longevity. The shine stays for an hour tops and the color, short lived.

Then K-Palette comes up with a 1 Day Tattoo Lasting Lip Tint that gives us gloss lovers some hope. It's said to be a long-lasting and moisturising lip tint that is not sticky nor goopy.


It has four shades to suit your every mood: Glamorous Beige, Coral Peach, Rose Pink and Juicy Red.


The tint comes in a firm bullet that glides easily. Firm enough to be applied easily without the risk of breaking. The thicker texture as compared to traditional watery lip tint or stain makes it glide easily and more smoothly.


To really test this stain, I chose the darkest shade #04 Juicy Red. Lips are lightly stained with vivid color in a sheer gloss finish. I applied two layers to achieve a deeper color, as seen on photo below. 


The feeling is light on the lips, as if I'm just wearing lip balm. I'm impressed how vivid the color is given the texture it provided is like that of a balm. It took me four hours before I got to recheck how it stayed on my lips after I had a greasy dinner. The color wasn't as vivid but looks more like it's stained. 

My verdict? I love it! This easy to wear sheer lipstick is perfect for everyday wear. It gives a slick of effortless colour and comfortable moisturized feeling to the lips. My lips never dried the entire time I wore it, and I didn't feel like I needed to dab lip balm on my lips at the end of the day just to get some moisture back from the usual drying formulas of lipsticks. This K-Palette lip stain is perfect for those, who like me, want a fresh pop of colour on the lips without being too intense.

However, the longevity of this tint is its only con. At first application, you get a good dose of pigmented colour. But the gloss transfers quite easily, and the color slowly fades. What is left behind on the lips is a very delicate tint, which I personally prefer. But those who want a more intense color might get disappointed. 

For best results, lightly exfoliate the lips first to make color adhere to the lips better. Apply the K-Palette lip colour to the lips and blot any excess off the lips with a tissue. Reapply all over the lips to make it last longer.
