Lip and cheek tints are a godsend for girls who are on the go and on a budget, because you literally have two products (or sometimes even three, because they can work as an eyeshadow in a pinch too!) in one little tube. They're also perfect for that effortless, fresh, "ganda mo lang" makeup look that will make all your friends say, "Uy, blooming ka today."
We're a sucker for anything versatile and multipurpose, and with every brand coming out with their own version of lip and cheek tints, it's taking a lot of self-control not to buy and hoard them all!
Here are lip and cheek tints by Filipino brands that are super affordable, but can also compete with international brands! #LoveLocal, you guys.
Colourette Cosmetics Colourtint
This sounds like it can be a problem for oily-skinned gals because it's an oil-based tint, but its staying power is still very impressive, even under the hot and humid weather of our country. They're also available in so many shades and they're packaged to look like chubby nail polishes. It's hard not to hoard and collect them all!

KJM Cosmetics Cheek. Lip. Tint
I think I speak for everyone when I say that we all had a KJM tube in our kikay kit at one point in our life ever since the brand started in 2016. This water-based tint is very long-lasting and comes in different shades ranging from soft pinks to vampy purple hues.

blk Cosmetics Soft Matte Mousse
The Soft Matte Mousse from blk has a dreamy, velvet formula that glides on the lips without tugging and delivers full pigment. It does dry down to a matte finish so you don't have to worry about reapplying as much throughout the day. It can also be used as a quick eyeshadow or blush for a sweet pop of color.

Vice Cosmetics Water Gel Lip & Cheek Tint
This tint has a water-based formula that ensures your puckers stay comfortable throughout the day. It's easy to blend and delivers intense pigment you can sheer out or really pack on, depending on the ~lewk~ you're going for. With its affordable price point and so many colors to choose from, it's hard not to buy all the shades, LOL!

EB Advance Lip & Cheek Stain
This was one of the first lip and cheek tints that I ever bought, and although I have tried a lot more from other brands, the one from Ever Bilena is still up there on my list. It has a gel-like formula which makes it easier to blend on the cheeks and lips. Its bright reddish hue gives off the perfect "naarawan lang" vibe.

Careline Lip & Cheek Tint
Get a rosy, youthful glow with this lip and cheek tint from Careline! This has actually been available for a long time, but it was given a whole new look along with more shade options. It doesn't have a sticky, greasy feel to it, so you can use it sparingly for a subtle hint of color, or layer it on for that *~cool girl~* drunk blush look.

Happy Skin Kiss & Bloom Water Lip & Cheek Tint
A misconception about water-based lip tints is that they fade pretty easily, but this one from Happy Skin is long-lasting! It claims to be a no-mess lip tint that gives you a pretty wash of color on your cheeks and lips. Perfect for that "no makeup" makeup look!

This bestselling tint from Skin Genie is famous for its super affordable price point that doesn't lack in the pigment department. It's newly-reformulated, infused with aloe vera and hyaluronic acid to ensure that your pout stays moisturized throughout the day and won't crack or dry up. This line also comes in a whopping 12 shades! (BRB, adding all 12 shades to my cart.)
