During one of e.l.f.'s recent 50% promo events, I bought this Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint for just £1.75. I'd never seen or heard of these tints before but their description sounded promising, and definitely worth a try. There are eight shades available, but I chose Guava as I know it's typically an orangey coral shade which I tend to gravitate towards. e.l.f. describe their Mineral Moisturising Lip Tints as 'nourish, pamper and treat the lips with this super emollient, lip quenching colour' that contains Shea Butter, Jojoba Oil, Coconut Oil and Vitamin E as well as an SPF of 8. They claim to give your lips a 'just-bitten' tint, as well as nourishing chapped lips.
The tint is a black plastic tube which winds up. The packaging does look and feel very cheap, however that's the same across the board with e.l.f's products as they are cheap - the product inside is what matters as long as the packaging is functional. It applies easily, and glides across the lips just like a Revlon ColorBurst Lip Butter. However the bullet is so thin and narrow, I'm always worried I'm going to snap it.. I'm used to lipbalms, tints and lipsticks being a lot thicker in size. The Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint doesn't have any scent to it, but it does have a very sweet taste which I like. I feel like along with the tint, it covers the lips in a moisturising layer which doesn't absorb into the lips but leaves the lips feeling comfortable whilst it's being worn nonetheless. I can't honestly say that my lips are left feeling moisturised once the tint has worn off, which I expected considering its name so a little disappointing.
The pigmentation of this e.l.f Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint is really impressive, leaving the lips a pretty peach shade. Compared to the Revlon Lip Butter's the colour intensity is a lot better, and long lasting. With the Revlon Lip Butters I find that they fade so quickly, but this tint lasts at least 2-3 hours. In terms of moisturisation I'd say that the Revlon and e.l.f. offerings are on par, in that they feel moisturising enough whilst on the lips, but once they've faded the lips don't feel any better nor worse for applying them.
For £3.50 I have to say I really like this e.l.f Mineral Moisturising Lip Tint and much prefer it to the Revlon Lip Butters, as it's so much more comfortable.. tastes lovely, and has such intense colour pay-off. If e.l.f. have another big promo event, I'll definitely buy a couple of other shades as for £1.75 they're amazing and I really recommend them, even if they're not intensively moisturising.
