FOTD ft. The Face Shop Milky Tint
Lovely ME:EX Milky Tint in Baby Peach (Disclaimer: Purchased by me, post contains affiliate links)
Hi, beauties! Today’s Face of the Day post features a product I’ve been trying out for the past week. I’ve quickly fallen in love with this Milky Tint I got from The Face Shop. The Face Shop is a Korean retailer that sells skincare and makeup products. I visited The Face Shop several times while I was in New York because I fell in love with the store. They had a bunch of lovely products, the SAs were very nice, and they had testers of every single product available. I’ll be posting a haul from The Face Shop in the future. Anyways, I swatched the Lovely ME:EX Milky Tint on my hand and thought it would be like Benefit’s Benetint (which I don’t love) so I left without purchasing anything. The swatch lasted the entire day on my hand so I went back and purchased the color Baby Peach. I tried it, loved it, and went back and purchased another Milky Tint in the color Baby Pink! It’s labeled as a lip product but the SA told me it was dual purpose (cheeks & lips). I actually prefer it on the cheeks! This is different from the Benetint so if you didn’t like it don’t be afraid of the Milky Tints.
The Milky Tints are a bit sheer, they need some building up on medium skintones. I actually like that because they look so natural! It’s like a glow from within especially because they stain so it doesn’t look like powder on top of skin (like regular blush). They have a bit of a learning curve (in terms of application) because they are gel products. This is why they’re different from Benefit’s Benetint. Benetint is really watery so it sinks in quickly and sometimes looks unblended or splotchy. The Milky Tints are literally milky. They’re easier to blend and give you some “playtime” before they set and the color develops. The other thing I love about the Milky Tints is that they last and last and last! Perfect for summer. I like to use my fingers and a stippling brush to apply them.

Sorry for the ramble! I didn’t know I could write so much about one product! If you don’t have any The Face Shop stores near you, you can also buy the products on eBay. They’re actually cheaper on eBay so if you don’t mind waiting longer for shipping then that’s the best option. Happy Friday!
