The K-beauty wave may not be entirely responsible for the world’s obsession with lip tints, but it’s certainly helping it along. So, how are you wearing your favorites these days? At the BeautyMNL office, we’ve been swinging between the idol-approved ombré lip and bright, full pouts with faded edges. Tints work wonderfully for both looks! They’re buildable enough to seamlessly fill in our kissers, without being too thick to fade out.

Looking to get in on that K-lip action? Here are 6 of our lip tint essentials as of Q1 2018. A few are from the East, a few are from the West, but most are made right here in the PH. What they have in common: a lovely, everyday pop of color. (Insert finger hearts here.)
