Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint Velvet
Today I'm going to be talking about the Chateau Labiotte Wine Lip Tint Velvet! I saw these back in November last year and thought the colour range looked really pretty and wearable, so I decided to grab the range! I have previously tried the regular liquid tints and quite liked them, and of course the packaging is just way too cute too!
One layer of light, closely adhering finish. Kiss-proof, powerful-fixing lasting power. Strong effect, more romantic color
Of course these tints have super cute wine bottle shaped packaging which adds to the appeal. They have a doe foot wand that make the tints easy to apply, though the wand applicator is a little small and awkward to hold. There are six shades in the velvet range and I quite like the shade range! It doesn't include the classic bright K Beauty shades like the hot pink, bright orange and red, but rather a range of more soft and muted shades.
BE01 Terroir Nude
Terroir Nude a pale, warm toned nude.
The is a fairly natural nude shade for me, though it does lean slightly orange. I find these tints very easy to apply, though the little applicator wand can be a little fiddly to hold as it's so small. This is the lightest shade in the range, but even a thin layer colours my lips perfectly.
PK01 Saint Rose
Saint Rose is a beautiful dusty rose shade.
This is actually my favourite shade in the range! It's the perfect dusty rose for every day wear, it's not a my lips but better shade, but I do find that the shade matches well to almost all of my outfits. These tints do dry down to a lovely soft matte finish, but are not smudgeproof. This means that they are lovely on dry lips, though I do recommend exfoliating any dead skin off before application for a beautiful finish.
PK02 Verdot Pink
Verdot Pink is a vibrant strawberry pink shade.
This is another really pretty shade and one that I get a lot of wear out of! For me this is almost a barbie pink, but I actually really love it! I find that these tints stain my lips really nicely, it helps them to fade out nicely throughout the day so that I don't end up with a ring around the outside of my lips after eating or drinking.
CR01 Chalon Coral
Chalon Coral is a lovely muted coral shade.
This is another lovely shade that I get a lot of wear out of. This is a similar shade to the other two pinks, but definitely has the orange undertones. I find that these tints are best applied sparingly, when I apply too much I find that they start to collect around the inner lip (like the photos here) and it doesn't look as good or wear as well.
OR01 Rose Orange
Rose Orange is a pretty muted orange shade.
I don't usually like orange shades, but this isn't too bad! It has a more muted tone rather than the bright carrot orange tone that K Beauty shades usually come in, and I think this suits me a little better. This is still my least favourite shade in the collection, not because I don't like it, but because I like the other shades more! These tints have fairly good longevity, and last on my lips for between 3-5 hours without eating or drinking.
RD01 Swirling Red
Swirling Red is a vibrant warm toned red shade.
This is a beautiful classic colour that looks great on my skin tone. I do find that these tints have a texture that is more like a liquid lipstick rather than your traditional water or gel tint, and have quite an awful scent and taste, they smell a little like plastic to me!
I'm surprised at how much I like these lip tints! I think the packaging is absolutely adorable, the shade range suits me quite well and they have a lovely finish. I think these would make great gifts since the packaging is so cute, and the colour range would be suitable for most skin tones too. The price point varies between $7 to $15USD, so I do recommend shopping around to get the best price.
