Innisfree Creamy Lip Tint Mousse

Innisfree Creammellow Lipstick (review here) left a heck of an impression. While I got intrigued browsing around after newly discovered Korean brand, I was instantly drawn to Creamy Tint Lip Mousse. I imagined it to be a perfect trendy liquid matte lipstick for Summer but I've should have taken it's name a bit more seriously. Innisfree Creamy Tint Lip Mousse is indeed a mousse type of product with semi-matte finish and ''lemon vanilla dessert'' scent. Mousse leaves a bright stain as proclaimed and doesn't dry out the lips. Rich color stays put for hours while feels comfortable as a velvety lip cushion. Texture is somewhat slippery and a bit concerning with first application but after a few trys you'll probably realise it's one of the safest products to use. Although it's light as a feather, it somehow manages to stay put. It doesn't creases, smudges or moves. I won't lie, the 7 colors in the Creamy Tint Lip Mousse range are a bit intimidating with neon bright, white-based shades. But trying to be brave and all, I've decided for a bright warm pink named #4 Spring Romance Peach. It's nothing similar to my existing lip selection and it's indeed a perfect ''in your face'' shade for upcoming Summer. However, it's in similar category as Mac Impassioned or Catrice Kiss Kiss Hibiscus. Mentioned longevity is around 6 hours with leftover bright pink stain.

Innisfree Creamy Tint Lip Mousse is feathery lightweight, intensely pigmented, intimidatingly bright with a flattering velvet like finish. All 7 shades are extra bright with a kick of white pigments so if you're opting for a natural look, this shouldn't be your first choice. Generally, I like the product but I miss standard matte finish with these kind of shades. Speaking of matte, I've tried the blotting technique with a separated tissue and the lip product became matte. Taking away it's bonus moisture, you'll be left with a standard, high pigmented matte look. Personally, I can't be bothered with extra blotting for matte lips. Creamy Tint Lip Mousse wouldn't be my first choice from Innisfree but if you enjoy lightweight textures, neon lip colors and mousse consistency, this is totally up your alley. They retail for 11,98$ for 4,8ml on Jolse.com, where you can also find other gimmicky Korean products.
