Lip And Cheek Tints Are Rage And These Are TGM’s Most-Loved Clean Picks


If a new trend simplifies our beauty routine and leaves a positive impact on the environment as well, you know we are up for it. So as much as we adore our lipstick stash that spans into various shades, formulas and finishes, we can’t help but obsess over the lip and cheek tints that have been quite the rage lately. Lip and cheek tints are being favoured over traditional lip colours and blushes these days. If you are a fan of a quick and hassle-free makeup routine or love natural, monotoned makeup looks, these multitasking products are a must-have in your makeup kit as well. Just like the name suggests, these products can be used as a lip colour, a blush or even an eyeshadow. So it's no wonder why these tints have become a staple in the vanities of many women (across the globe) who value minimalism and sustainability. 

Benefits Of Natural Lip And Cheek Tints

While many drugstore makeup brands are coming up with lip tints, we are leaning towards formulas that are natural, clean and free of ingredients like parabens, formaldehyde, phthalates or artificial perfumes. Such formulas feel more comfortable to wear as they are made with plant oils, butters and waxes to avoid drying out your skin. They are also highly pigmented and enriched with botanical extracts that nourish your skin.

Here are our top 7 picks that are clean, cruelty-free and true multitaskers in your makeup routine.

Juicy Chemistry recently launched its makeup range called ‘Color Chemistry’ which is Ecocert Certified organic. This range includes lip and cheek tints in six shades that complement even on darker skin tones. The formula is super-pigmented, easy to use and blend and offers a buildable, soft-matte finish that looks natural on your lips and cheeks.

Ilana organics was one of the first clean homegrown beauty brands in India to offer a lip and cheek tint. Their Beet Tint is still a best seller and has the goodness of beetroots in it. The water-based formula is perfect for long wear and offers a sheer red tint that is suitable for all occasions.

These tinted lip balms can be used on lips, cheeks and eyes and are available in seven vibrant shades.
