[REVIEW] PONGDANG Mulbit Water Drop Lip Tint (#01 Mulbit Red)

Finally getting around to giving this product the spotlight it deserves! JK, all my products deserve equal love, some more than others.. but regardless I love them all. And I meant to do this post a lot earlier, but there’s been a few things going on lately and I haven’t been able to get myself out of a slump. Anyways, back on topic – this lip tint is easily now made its way to being one of my favourites (which came with my Megan Box a loong while ago). Want to know why? Read on!

Packaging

The product comes in a pretty simple cardboard packaging, with the description and instructions in English. It’s cute and simple making it appealing to the eye. The product itself is quite cute, the cap is white with subtle polka dots on them, and the container is a metal-like finish with the brands logo on it, as well as the product name and colour. The applicator is a doe-foot applicator, and the lid is pretty long – which makes it easy to hold. The tube that holds to product is a lot smaller, appears to be a plastic material covered with a silver/metal-like colour. Made me feel like I could drop this a bunch of times and it’d still be safe.

What this promises to do

Lightweight and non-sticky, glossy, new and luminous shine. Enhances natural beauty of the lips.

On TesterKorea it says – ‘The Mulbit Waterdrop Lip Tint is designed with vibrant pigments and natural ingredients to deliver a long-lasting, beautiful color to your lips with a natural shine.‘ As well as being long-lasting‘ and ‘hydrating‘ with a naturally ‘glowing finish’.

Ingredients

Water,Octyldodecanol,Butylene Glycol,Trimethylsiloxyphenyl Dimethicone,Alcohol,Ethylcellulose,Cetyl Alcohol,Polysorbate 60,Sorbitan Sesquioleate,Hydroxyethyl Acrylate/Sodium Acryloyldimethyl Taurate Copolymer,Diglycerin,Polyglyceryl-2 Triisostearate,Hydroxypropyl Guar,Red 7 Lake(CI15850),Alumina,Silica,Tocopheryl Acetate,Hydrogenated Polyisobutene,Glyceryl Caprylate,Fragrance,1,2-Hexanediol,CI 17200,Yellow 5 Lake(CI19140),Methicone,Laminaria Japonica Extract,Sargassum Fulvellum Extract,Gelidium Cartilagineum Extract,Undaria Pinnatifida Extract,Hizikia Fusiforme Extract,Hydrolyzed Collagen,Ecklonia Cava Extract,Codium Tomentosum Extract,Codium Fragile Extract,Gratelopia Elliptica Extract,Hypnea Musciformis Extract

I ran the ingredients through a CosDNA, although I don’t foresee lip tints and lip sticks in general as a potential threat towards the skin. Maybe our health, for the times that we accidentally ingest lipstick without knowing. The main ingredients to look out for are the plant and fruit extracts if you are allergic to those. There’s one that I thought would be a good idea to keep an eye out for, for future references – Methicone (silicone). Other than that, the product is generally pretty ok as far as ingredients go!

Application

Check out these swatches – it’s only from a small amount of product, but I managed to get a lot of colour out of it (see the image under texture) – sorry for my fail swatching but I hope it helps!! I found this really easy to apply compared to the Berrisom lip tint peel. Since the product also comes with a doe-foot applicator, it’s easier to apply near the edges of the lips and have less opportunity to mess up.

swatches

It has has a nice citrus scent to it, so sweet that it makes you want to taste it (don’t do that lol). After you apply this tint, you have to wait for around 15-20 seconds for it to dry and set, which turns the tint into a really lovely red-magenta colour. REMEMBER to wait before consuming anything, otherwise it will not last.

Texture

Ta-daa! I really like this colour, even though sometimes it’ll make my lips pop out a lot more than the rest of my face. My lips felt hydrated after putting this tint on, while the Berrisom made my lips just feel slightly dried out because for lip peels you have to peel off that layer.

texture

The texture of this tint is similar to what you would usually find in a milky tint, it’s a thicker consistency compared to water tints, but thinner than lip glosses. I would say this is an in between between water lip tints and lip glosses, and slightly thicker than milk tints!

Fragrance

Mild, sweet scent

Results

Sorry for my super dry and unattactive lips – the weather here has been really really bad on my skin. Throughout the day, the tint will fade slowly, and becoming less eye-catching – but it really does last for an extremely long time. When I swatched this on my arm, the tint stayed on until the next day (though I am not sure how much that would help you)! I tried it on at 8AM ish, and the tint was still there around 3PM (even though it wasn’t as evident, my lips still had colour to it, which made me not look as sick with those pale pale lips.

on-the-lips

One thing to note is that when you apply it you need to apply an adequate amount for it to last longer. In my results photo, I applied a thin layer, so it won’t be as evident later on in the afternoon. But when I applied slightly more than what I had on in the photo, the colour even though it fades, can still be visible after 4-5 hours of wear. My lips felt moisturised after using this product, compared to how some other lip tints would make my lips flakey and dry. EVEN THOUGH my lips are super dry right now, it gave that glow-like finish and kinda moisturised the dry bits.

In Summary

This product might not seem like a hidden gem, but it definitely is for me! What really sold me on this product is how long lasting it is, and the finish. I also really like how its not completely a water tint, so you don’t get the watery colour dripping everywhere when you apply it. This might just be another lip tint to keep an eye out for if you’re ever in need of one!

    • Thank you for reading! Yep, I was pretty surprised at the lasting power of this one too! I think The Face Shop Tints aren’t too bad either. It’s sad when a tint doesn’t last long :(
