Became a fan of tints because of this
This is the first lip tint from Happy Skin that I tried. It’s called Breathe. I’m not really fond of tints because I find them so hard to use. It’s always a struggle to get an even outcome. So I usually stay away from them. But Happy Skin released their Generation Happy Skin Active Collection. And the first of the items they released in that collection were a few sets containing lip products. There was this set which has two lipsticks and two lip tints and a pouch. So long story short, I got the sets and I am now taking the products for test runs. 😁

The tints from the GHS Active collection has the same packaging as the original. Only the color is different. The tints are packaged in square tubes sporting a deep royal purple color scheme. It’s box is plastic. The doe foot applicator is soft but some firmness is observed. I had no issues with that because it allowed for a more precise application of the tint.
Breathe is a rich deep red hue. I don’t know how to exactly describe it. It has a little hint of brown but it’s more red. It’s very pigmented. I was really surprised. It applied evenly and I had no trouble using it. I usually have problems with tints because I have dark lip edges. So they always appear darker than the rest when I use a tint. But this time, every thing was even. It also did not dry out my lips, unlike other popular lip tints. It’s so moisturizing and there were no taste or after tastes.
I used it on my cheks as well and it was very easy to blend and even out. It did not leave a dot on the spit where I first dabbed it. It left a beautiful watercolor effect on my cheeks after I blended it. It gave that pop of color I was looking for. It was very natural looking.
It lasted pretty long too. It did not fade even after I ate or drank. By late afternoon, there was some barely noticeable wear but a single dab was all it needed to fix it. The color on my cheeks stayed all day despite the heat and all the sweat.
I was really impressed with Happy Skin’s tints. I never expected to like it so much. It’s a bit expensive but it’s definitely worth it because of the sheer quality of the product.
