Aritaum Wannabe Cushion Tint Review in #3 Blondie, #4 Janet, and #18 Fergie

Wednesday, February 5, 2014

Hello everyone! Today I have a review on the Aritaum Wannabe Cushion Tint. I know these came out Summer of 2013 and this review may be a bit late but it may still be useful if you're looking into ordering some.  I  love how there is a wide range of colors available for this line ranging from oranges to bright pinks to reds.  If you love a bright lip, then these should be right up your alley. The colors in this line are "matte" but they do have some moisture shine.

Although most of the colors in this line are very bright, I truly think the intention of this product is to make a lovely gradient effect. Most girls go for the gradient effect by applying this product to the center of their lips and blending outwards for a fresh and pretty small lips effect. Gradients lips were a big trend during the summer and even now in the winter, I still see many girls in Seoul rocking the gradient lips.

Nowadays, due to influences from celebrities in dramas like Yoon Eun Hye in "I Miss You" and Jun Ji Hyun in "My Love From Another Star" bright pink to fuschia lips are really trending.  I think is great because I love bold lips and I am just not good at gradient lips at all. It's takes a lot of effort to create a good one. 

Currently, there are 21 colors available according to promotional materials. Aritaum release 10 colors at first but it was such a hit that they quickly added 11 more.
*the two pictures above are from promotional materials. All the other pictures are mine.

I have three colors: #3 Blondie, #4 Janet, and #18 Fergie. As you may know sooner or later, I love bright pinks and red lips. I really have a hard time pulling off nudes and peachy colors due to my skin tone. 

Blondie: Blondie is a very bright, slightly cool toned pink

Janet: Janet is a slightly cool to neutral bright red

Fergie: Fergie is a bright neutral toned pink

Packaging: These come in giant crayon form just like the Wannabe Longwear Sticks. One eye contains the products and the other end contains a tapered sponge for smudging. I think the purpose of the sponge is for blending out lines if you wanted to make gradients lips.  

Scent: I've noticed products have different scents depending on their color. They're very subtle and not bothersome at all. Blondie and Fergie both have very sweet, fruity candy scents and Janet has a rose scent. 

Performance: I really like this product. It's very easy to use because it's in crayon form. It's very opaque. You can get the color in one swipe. When I have a product this opaque, ease of use is really important. The color is super opaque. It's really creamy enough that you can easily smudge it out with the sponge smudger at the end but not so creamy that it will get all over your lips and teeth. It's also a bit moisturizing and not drying at all. Awesome :)

You need to exfoliate your lips before you use this product or else the product will catch on and accentuate any dry bits. 

The top layer of moisture and color is a bit trasferable so the color may transfer onto a napkin or a cup. However after the top layer is absorbed or wiped off, the color will still be on your lips in the form of a stain that won't transfer at all. The stain is the same color as the lip crayon but without the top layer of moisture and shine. It doesn't feel drying at all which is really impressive. You'll need to clean it off with a proper lip makeup remover at the end of the day.

There are two ways to stop the product from transfering. 1: Apply the product just to the center of your lips and blend outward. You will be using less product and there won't be that layer of moisture and shine. 2: Blot your lips after applying this product on your lips. In the pictures above, the product was fully applied to my lips and unblotted.

Price: They're around 9 000 Won at Aritaum.

What I Love About It:
- very vibrant color pay off
- easy to use
- very creamy
- the stain is very long lasting
- the leftover stain is the same color as when the product was initially applied
- very affordable
- lots of fun and beautiful colors in the line
- they have pleasent scents that aren't distracting at all

What I Don't Love About It:
- it will accentuate any dry bits so you need to exfoliate your lips before your use it

I highly recommend this product. It's cheap, it's moisturizing, long lasting, and vibrant. I can easily achieve a bold lip with no hassle. It's a winner for me. 


  1. Love these Aritaum tints too~

    1. Yes, they're really lovely. Which colors do you have?

    2. I have a bunch, but I think I use Mini w. Aritaum's World Glam Coating Tint in London on a regular basis. I'm partial to the pinks. ^^

    3. I tend to gravitate towards fuschia. Mini looks nice! London and Seoul are my favorite among the Aritaum World Glam Tint lin

  2. I've been wanting to try them for a really long time! Thanks for the review! The colors all look so stunning on you.

    1. Thank you! Definitely give these a try. Recently Innisfree and Etude release a new mousse tint product line. They're beautiful as well.
