Generation Happy Skin Kiss & Bloom Water Lip & Cheek Tint Review






How does it feel to literally just wake up, apply some lip and cheek tint and rush out of the door?
Well, it's possible if you are Kathryn Bernardo!  As for me, I needed a bit of help from eye products (brow pencil and liquid liner)


But this, is the closest to Kathryn Bernardo's favorite type of makeup --- the very simple and laidback look!

Today, I am reviewing the Generation Happy Skin Kiss & Bloom Water Lip & Cheek Tint in shade Serene.  (Kindly refer to my report on #KathXHappySkin Launch to see swatches of the rest of the shades)

The shade Serene is somewhat like that of a Watermelon shade!  It looks bloodshot reddish orange on tube and applicator but actually appears more subtle and natural once applied on cheeks!

Swatch: Serene
The texture is watery and can be easily blended.

Truth be told, I am not thrilled with Lip & Cheek tints as I usually just enjoy them as Cheek Tints!  I seldom use them for both ways as I find the watery texture not to last on my lips!  But let me start by reviewing this product as a Cheek Tint first.

3 small dots are perfect for 1 cheek!  If I want more color, I can go up to 4 dots but going beyond that would look unnatural for those who have fair to medium complexion!  Darker complexion may enjoy 4-6 dots because the effect is more subtle.

Blending quickly is very important as it may dry out and create unwanted spots and uneven patches.  I like to do quick dabbing/patting motion as opposed to rubbing to maintain that healthy glow (key word: So as not to ruin your base as well!)

The product feels tacky at the first minute or two but once set, it stays dry.  I personally like using this on days I know I don't have time for retouch as this actually lasted me 8 long hours (I have dry/normal skin).

The only issue I may say for users with acne prone skin is that, it may cling onto patches and will highlight redness of your cheeks and will look uneven.  Make sure to cover everything with a good base before using this tint.

Now let's use this as a lip tint, as a lip tint, I find this to be a great product to use if you prefer the Korean Gradient lips!  Even if I try to apply this all over my lips, the effect would remain gradient because my dry lips tend to absorb the product and I'm mostly left with uneven patches.  This tint, I find would be perfect for users with healthy and hydrated lips!  If you have dry lips like I do, this may still work but you have to apply a good base underneath so the effect will be even and more natural.

As for longevity, used as lip tint won't last long especially if you tend to lick your lips often.  It lasted me around 3 hours maxed so I prefer to use this on my cheeks instead.  (Personal preference).

Ovearll, the shade looks nice on fair to dark complexion!  I like how the shade made my cheeks look healthy and my overall look younger-looking (DISCLAIMER: that's based from compliments okay? hehehe)
