The Face Shop My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tint 01 Juicy Cherry might not be a dupe for Benefit Benetint, but it’s still one to try.
Lip tints are so easy to use, and they also double as cheek tints. Well, actually, this one doesn’t say “lip and cheek tint”. I just assumed that it can also be used on the cheeks. Besides, we all explore the versatility of makeup, right? Just like with the Etude House Play 101 Pencils. 😀
There were 3 shades available, but I only bought Juicy Cherry because the other 2 shades seem to be too dark for my taste.

01 Juicy Cherry
The Face Shop My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tint 01 Juicy Cherry is a lovely, warm-toned red tint with a glossy finish. It’s a moist, water-type tint that is gently absorbed by the lips giving it a natural, rosy shine. It’s a my-lips-but-better, my-natural-lips-are-red, lip color. It smells and tastes almost the same like the Laneige Water Drop Tints. I really love this scent, and if I accidentally lick my lips, it tastes really good.
The My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tints have a Water Dispersion Gel System that creates an aqua gel film over the lips which holds moisture. It also gives a smooth and even application.
In the tube, The Face Shop Aqua Tint Juicy Cherry looks to be a bright, orange red. You will notice how it really is very watery. When swatched on the arm, it is very sheer in 1 swipe, so in the photos below, I had swatched it using 2 and 3 swipes. You can build up the color, but you won’t get an opaque coverage. But who expects a lip tint to be opaque anyways, right?
I love how easy it is to blend, so if you want to use it as a cheek tint, you’ll have no problems blending it. However, it sets really fast, so you might want to blend it immediately after application. What you can do is put a few dots of Juicy Cherry at the back of your hand (which should be clean). Then, using your clean fingers, dab it on the product on your hand and blend gently on your cheeks. Or, if you’re already a pro at lip and cheek tints, then you can definitely apply it directly to your cheeks should you wish to.
My Lips Eat Cherry 01 Juicy Cherry can be used even by those with pigmented lips like me. But don’t expect it to be fully opaque on the lips as it’s just a lip tint. It also applies fairly easily and the doe-foot applicator glides smoothly over the lips.
The Face Shop Lovely me:ex My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tint promises to provide and lock-in moisture on the lips, and with Juicy Cherry, I found that it lives up to its promise. It was not drying on my lips, and feels very moisturizing.
Juicy Cherry lip and cheek tint feels really watery and lightweight on my lips. It doesn’t accentuate dry and flaky patches on the lips, but it would still be best to exfoliate the lips beforehand. I would also recommend that you apply a hydrating lip balm before applying the lip tint, especially if you have extremely dry lips.
For the photos above, I applied Juicy Cherry at the center of my lips and then blended out. Then applied a second layer. But as you can see, my pigmented outer lips are still visible. I didn’t bother to cover my outer lips because I wanted to show you how it looks when it’s not worn over the full lips. It doesn’t have a very high shine, but it’s still quite glossy on the lips.
I only applied a light layer of it on my cheeks so it’s not visible in the photos. It looks lovely on the cheeks, though. It’s like somebody had just pinched my cheeks and left a peachy coral glow. 🙂
The Face Shop Aqua Tint Juicy Cherry promises to be long lasting. It doesn’t have the same longevity as a liquid lipstick or a regular lipstick, but it’s fairly long lasting for a lip tint. It lasts around 3 to 4 hours on my lips. Its water soluble coloring leaves a bit of stain after eating and drinking, but still not enough not to have to reapply it. When used as a cheek stain, it lasts between 3 to 5 hours on me, depending on the weather and environment I’m in.
APPLICATION TIPS FOR THE LIPS:
☆ Put a few dots at the center of the lips then blend out for gradation lips.
☆ Or, apply using the applicator over the entire lips.
APPLICATION TIPS FOR THE CHEEKS:
☆ Put a few dots at the back of your clean hand. Then, using your clean fingers, dab some of the product from your hand and blend gently on your cheeks.
☆ Or, apply it directly to your cheeks by putting a few dots on the cheekbones and blend it immediately after.
WHAT I LOVE ABOUT IT:
☆ It has a natural glow for that just bitten lip effect.
☆ It really delivers on moisture. It’s one of the best water type tints I’ve tried because it has awesome moisturizing effect on the lips.
☆ It is fairly long lasting for a lip tint.
☆ Super affordable! 😀
The My Lips Eat Cherry Aqua Tint comes in a clear, hard plastic bottle with a shiny black cap. The doe-foot applicator which is attached to the cap is not too soft nor too hard. The shade number is indicated at the bottom of the tube, but I don’t see the expiration date anywhere. Probably it’s in Korean because most of the words on the tube is in Korean.
I love using Juicy Cherry as a light pop of color on the lips when I’m only wearing light makeup. It is very affordable as it only costs Php225 for a 5g worth of product. I bought it from The Face Shop in Robinsons Manila, but it’s also available in the United States and Canada.
