Thrifty Adventures in Portland

Hello Lovelies! You’ll find me at my happiest when I’m trawling a thrift store or digging through a Goodwill Outlet; I love hunting down a bargain and ending the day by coming home with a car full of new clothes to try to fit into […]

Let’s get caught up, shall we?

       Hello  Lovelies!  I was curious and dug into my archives, I haven’t actually written a weekly wrap up since 2016…. I’m blown away that it’s been so long! I got bit by the writing bug at the beginning of the year; this made one of my […]

Hello!

I found the entire NYC Demi Lovato Lovatics Tints at my local drugstore on clearance for 50 cents a pop, and even though I rarely use blush, it was too good of a deal to pass up!

I got the shades Cheeky Berry, Cheeky Pink, Cheeky Strawberry, and Cheeky Red (such creative names haha).

Bare Skin 

These are marketed as a lip + cheek tint, but I didn’t take any pictures as a lip color because these are so pale. Cheeky Berry, which is the darkest of the bunch, is hardly noticeable after application so I felt like pictures showing a before and after would be a waste.

On the other hand, they are absolutely lovely as blushes! This may be in part due to the fact that I’m incredibly pale, but being so pale makes it hard to find blushes that don’t look garish, so I really appreciate that they’re blendable and sheer.

 It’s shocking how pigmented the liquid appears before it’s blended into the skin, so I filmed a clip to show off how blendable it is. This dries fairly quick so you have to move quickly after brushing it on. As long as you don’t dilly dally too long, it’s super easy to work with.

With the Tint

What are your thoughts on tints? Are they worth it, or is it better to stick with traditional powders? Let me know in the comments!
