Thoughts: I've always loved the tinted balmy type of lip products and the popularity of Aritaum's Honey Melting Lip Tint made me very curious. Judging from the name Honey Melting Tint I expected this to be very balmy but pigmented much like my favorite Revlon Lip Butters. However, this turned out to be quite dense and has a slight sticky feeling on the lips though not unbearable. The pigmentation is great, you can do a sheer wash or build it to full on color. Because it isn't as balmy, I find that the staying power is a decent 4 hours and I believe it leaves the slightest tint on your lips after it wears off.
The shade Lady Dessert is a gorgeous mix of pink/orange coral, it is a slightly red leaning especially when compared to Revlon's Tutti Fruitti which is an orange shade and Juicy Papaya which is a more orange coral. I love this shade, I tend to wear it over lip concealer so that it shows up true to coral, on my pigmented lips it leans more orange.
The packaging is quite cute and sturdy, it is a typical twist up bullet with a cap that shuts tight. It doesn't feel cheap or loose in the packaging.
Overall, I really love this Honey Melting Tint, to me it is more of a lipstick than a tint or balm. It is very comfortable to wear and I quite like that its not slippery like balms can be. I've always loved Korean lip products for their really pretty wearable shade ranges. I definitely want to pick up more in the future!
