The Quintessential Lilac Lip – Kjaer Weis Lip Tint in Amazed

Hello spring! If there is one makeup trend this season that I find myself drawn to, it’s a fondness for purple hues. Particularly soft shades of lilac. Although my makeup choices tend to be generally in the neutral territory, I find the vast spectrum of purple tones incredibly wearable and generously flattering.

A recent acquisition that solidifies my love of lilac, is the new Lip Tint from Kjaer Weis, called Amazed. Kjaer Weis has released the most quintessential shade of lilac that has been a mainstay in my current makeup routine.

“Amazed is a lip color that’s innocent but flirty, inspired by the starlets of the 60s.”- Kirsten Kjaer Weis

If you’re not familiar, the Kjaer Weis Lip Tints come in a refillable silver compact with a mirror on the reverse side of the top for easy touch-ups. It is truly luxury cosmetic packaging at its finest. The Lip Tints have a balmy feel and brilliantly build from sheer, to bold. For a sheer wash of color, just use your finger for application. For a more intense color payoff, its best to build the color with a lip brush. While I love the balmy feel and versatility of the lip tints, they do lack in the longevity department. So, lucky for that mirror, frequent touch-ups are necessary.

Amazed is a perfectly pale lilac-pink, I call it “nude’s sister.” It also looks beautiful applied to the apples of the cheeks. As I have mentioned, the Lip Tints are truly versatile in their ability to build. In the image above, I have layered the lipstick with a lip brush to show off its color payoff potential. However, I would generally apply with a lighter hand for a more natural look.
