Not that matte lipstick would ever truly be over, but no one can blame a girl for wanting to give her lips a breather. For those times, lip tints are an undisputed favorite. The good ones feel lighter than your average matte, are more natural-looking, and fade without cracking up.
As if those pros weren’t great enough, the best tints also happen to be ultra buildable. That means you can layer ‘em on to achieve an opaque lip, or keep the swipes at a minimum for sheer, glossy finish.

Below, we swatch 8 lip tints that layer beautifully. You can take them from Sunday brunch to date night and your painted pout will never look over- or under-done. Scroll!
