SkinFood Tomato Cool Jelly Tint Berry

I can't help it! The SkinFood Angel got me again! ;-D
SkinFood Tomato Cool Jelly Tint No. 2 (Berry) with my Fuchsia Bling Bling Nails 
Since I'm so into SkinFood lately, I've been expanding my my stash with their cosmetic lines. But it's strike 2 for me, first the apricot, now the berry. Yes, I'm also a bit disappointed with the Tomato Cool Jelly Tint. I have a love and hate relationship with SkinFood, methinks! ✌ Oh well...

Product Description: Infused with the goodness of vitamin C and rosewater, this water gel lip tint that naturally colors and makes your lips look luscious. It has hydrating effects so lips stay silky smooth longer. This indelible tint gives you a healthy glow that everyone will be envious of!

It comes with a doe foot applicator brush.  Look at the jelly on the wand! ;-D
I got them in different shade. But the SkinFood barely shows any color vs. the  actual product without swatching.
Almost translucent finish.
What's to ❤?
  • Since it's from SkinFood, more than the aesthetic effect, it promises beauty from within. ;-D 
  • It actually has a cool to the touch effect, because of the jelly consistency. 
  • It's lightweight, non-greasy, and non-drying.
  • I love the packaging, that got me actually! ;-D
Why I'm not to happy with it?
  • It's hard to keep the colors even to the whole lip area (unlike Tony Moly's). Because it's not as pigmented, and it almost looks and feels like a gloss (which is not bad, but is not what I signed up for).
  • Because of the consistency, being gel type, it doesn't dry or get absorbs to your lip area as easily as the other liquid based tints to immediately create a natural look of having just a blushed lips. 
  • It doesn't last long. It will not last you an entire meal. 
Overall, I'll be happy to finish my whole tint, but I'm not to keen on stashing more of them. I'm saving it for those days that I feel just wearing a natural healthy, looking lips...on the usual no frills, dress down malling weekdays!  ;-D It's not for those days that I wanted more drama, such that I want to exude a vixen look with my sultry, red lips. haha! ;-D I'll definitely go with Tony Moly for that look.

Wifey to JB and Mommy to Chasey :) It's said that one's eyes are windows to one's soul. True! My eyes twinkle when I'm happy, they light up with my smile. I’m no frills! I'm easy to read (except during Poker). I easily get teary eyed on practically both happy and sad things. I'm overly emotional! UP,Toy Story 3, and Glee made me cry with delight.My hubby is my source of strength. He balances that side of my personality. He made me a more self-reliant person.I love being a mom. But be it known that I tend to be OC, paranoid, and definitely see my self as a stage mom.I can't help but throw him parties every year.I love to read. If there is a lifetime membership to Book Lover's Club, I've probably signed in as early as Grade 1. I'm blessed to have a special relationship with God. He is my confidante. I practically talked to him anywhere and anytime about anything. I'm a Kapampangan and supposedly known for having culinary skills.This still needs to be found perfected, but for sure, I can say I'm a gourmand!I love to eat and it shows!Oh well!Beauty is in the Eye of the Beholder and Happiness is only a state of mind. From today onwards, I intend to live in a Happy Mode!Cheers!
