Review: Herbench Pretty when Pinched Cheek and Lip Tint

Long ago, in a faraway place, there lived a lovely princess named Snow White. Her hair was black as coal, her lips red as rose, and her skin as white as snow.
We all know how beautiful Snow White is and I admit I once dream of becoming like her. Now it's not so impossible after we get a pinch of color on our cheeks! Rosy cheeks + rosy lips = Snow White look, yes? :)

Herbench Pretty when Pinched Cheek and Lip Tint is already a famous lip tint to start with. I bought one on a whim because I love the product swatch.

I can't capture a shot of my own tint now because it doesn't look presentable anymore
As you can see the product is inside a glass bucket nail polish type packaging. It is delicate and can break easily so you need to be extra careful if you have this inside your kikay kit. Sadly because of my own carelessness I broke mine and I lost half of the product amount *sad*. I can only use it now before I go out because it will surely make a mess inside my kit if I attempt to bring it along with me.

My Experience:

Herbench tint is scary purplish red inside the glass bucket but when swatched the color is soft reddish pink and oh-so buildable. It is oil free and and a water type of tint but not so runny. It doesn't clog my pores when used as a cheek tint and it doesn't dry out my lips when I use it as a lip tint. You don't need to hurry when applying this because it doesn't dry fast but you still need to become careful to blend it well to avoid red streaks which is common for tints. Herbench Pretty when Pinched tint doesn't last long both on cheeks and lips but the color is lovely and I don't mind reapplication!

How I use it: I use this on top of my bb cream usually as lip and cheek tint, perfect for natural make-up look.
How much: P180/ 40 ml in Bench stores nationwide

What I love:
It's an affordable and accessible product.
A little goes a long way.
Has no weird taste nor smell

What I don't:
It doesn't last long especially on the lips.
Package is made of glass :(

Will I buy again?
YES! I totally love this tint despite the fact that it doesn't last long. Herbench tint's color and no fuss application wins me over. This is an affordable tint that delivers! :)
