What’s that you say? You want MOAR reviews of Laneige Water Drop Tints? Well I’m happy to oblige with a review of my seventh Water Drop Tint. I saw this at Aritaum in San Gabriel, Calif., and initially resisted. But it beckoned—nay, compelled–me to return. And so I introduce . . . Hot Pink! ($22 at Aritaum.)
Hot Pink is aptly named. Not fuchsia, not magenta, not electric. Just a clean, bright, hot pink.
Hot Pink applies with almost-full coverage with one swipe. Two swipes will definitely give you full coverage. Like with all Water Drop Tints, it sets after a couple of minutes into a soft shine that clings to your lips. The color lasts for hours if you don’t eat and feels really comfortable and hydrating.
Hot Pink and Neon Pink actually stained my arm when I washed off the swatches.
As you can see, Raspberry is a deeper pink (and more office appropriate, although I wore Hot Pink to work yesterday anyway . . . take that, societal norms!). Neon is a warmer pink and much lighter in color and in opacity.
Hot Pink has officially joined Raspberry and Neon as my favorite shades of Water Drop Tints. It’s an easy way to add fun and cheer to your look and also makes a beautiful gradient lip.
