Grape Republic: Nature Republic By Flower Triple Volume Tint in 03 Lilac Review

I couldn’t resist this purple lippie while I was at the Nature Republic store.  This is the By Flower Triple Volume Tint in the shade 03 Lilac.

The Laneige is lighter and has cooler, more pastel tones.  The Nature Republic has stronger pink tones and doesn’t clash as much with my yellow-toned skin.  The Laneige feels fancier, with clean white and silver packaging and a light, sweet scent.  In comparison, the first time I opened the Nature Republic, I was met with a cheap, artificial chemical smell.  Thankfully, that smell faded quickly and is no longer noticeable.

All that said, the formulas are comparable and both make for a creamy, moisturizing lip color.  I have a slight preference for the Laneige formula, which is slightly cushier, ever-so-slightly heavier (but is by no means heavy), and clings to the lips more.

Pros: Similar to Laneige Water Drop Tints but cheaper. Easy to apply and comfortable to wear.

Cons: Initially smells bad.
