[REVIEW] Aritaum Wannabe Cushion Tint #Blondie & #April

Hello guys!
I finally got the chance to post this. On my previous haul post, I received tons of e-mail asking about the shops 0.0 . I'm okay for telling you but I will not be responsible for any future problems you encounter. That's why I want to keep it hidden.

Anyway, many of you also ask me to review this so here you go!
Note that there are a lot of unsexy lips down below. I warn you not to throw

Before heading to the review, let me introduced Aritaum to any of you who are not
really familiar with this brand. :D

Aritaum is a brand under Amore Pacific Company which also produced other brands like Etude House, Laneige, Innisfree, IOPE, Hera, Sulwhasoo and etc. Basically it is the largest Korean Cosmetics Company in South Korea :D  Some of Aritaum popular products are mono eyeshadows :D

So now, onto the review :D

The color is so beautiful! :D

Fancy caps!

I swatched this on the glossy magazine paper :D

The swatches shows the true colors very well :)

Half side blended so you may actually can imagine how it looks like when I used the sponge to blend the color.

and dun dun it looks like on my lips!

To be honest, my camera doesn't really captured the true color of #April very well. It looks like it s more to cool tone in the picture above but it is actually not. It's wasn't really Nicki Minaj if you need reference.
It's more to mature pink which I think is wearable for everyday looks!

and for #Blondie, the capture the color well but it was a bit light than the real color. The color suppose to be more fuschia look without too bright. Among these two, I love #Blondie more because I love the color so much that it makes me looks

I tried to do a gradient lips it turns well?no? I guess I'm not good enough..haha XD
The reason why I choose both of these color to buy is because I wanna do the super popular gradients lips..
but I think it turns well than I

Another lip gradient using Candy Doll #Apricot Beige and Aritaum Wannabe Cushion Tint #Blondie
(room lighting)

This tint have 10 lip colors and 1 lip concealer (#Claire). It range from nude pink, bright pink, red, orange and nude orange..and oh, there is peach too. The packaging is very fancy which attracted the most! Besides, I watched the tuto video by Aritaum and just amazed on how the tint works! 

For the texture, I think it is a bit drying for someone who had dry lips like me. I don't use lip balm before applying this but I use an eye cream instead. Lip balm can be too glossy while eye cream makes the fine lines lesser and it gives moisture to lips without being greasy. I don't recommend to use lip balm before applying this because the color won't stick onto the your lips better. You don't want to keep reapplying right?

The color is very pigmented as a single swatch can show up the color very well. But if you actually applied a lot, it's okay because the cushion is there to help blending the color and makes it looks feathery.

Lasting hour is good..not too great but good enough. The lip tints looks like a lipstick but after I dab the cushion on the color, it makes the color stayed on the lips very long like a tint without drinking. If I eat or drink, the color would disappear bit by bit and leaving a hint of the color when the tint is nearly gone.

Lipstick would be easily transfer onto the things like glasses when we drink but this tint is not. As I said, it functions more like a lip tint as it supposed to be :)

It is non-sticky, dries matte and feathery when I used the sponge(they said cushion) provided.
The smells is very good which is candy-like smell :D . I could lick it all

Other than that, the tint feels so light on my lips like I'm not wearing anything.I could say that it feels rather smooth on lips :)

If you want to know how the cushion actually works, they help soften the edges of the tints and makes it looks feathery. It means that the cushion will create a hue of soft color from the bright colored tint. 
So that's why this tint is perfect for gradient lips!

Overall, I love everything about this tint and aiming for #Janet , #Claire and #Adela next! :D

p/s : I'm wearing #Blondie :D
the zoom in version of this is the last lip picture :D

Thank you for reading!
