Originally, the ADDICTION Tint Lip Protector + More were going to be part of the "Should It Stay Or Should It Go?" Series, but the jury is still out on their fate.

Lately, I feel as if all I ever do is bitch about the weather (and, I do), and today is no exception. Yesterday was pure hell, with temperatures reaching 34 degrees Celsius (93 Fahrenheit). Apparently, autumn is running on Cuban time.

Before I get into the actual product, I want to mention how much I like the weighty, clear, square base and silver lid packaging of the Tint Lip Protector + More.

I own four of the eight ADDICTION Tint Lip Protector + More, and they've been under house arrest in my makeup bag. The Tint Lip Protector + More is an emollient based product that can be used on the eyes, cheeks, and lips. They can be worn as is, or as a base, and I've found the best way to apply them is with the fingers. Although they don't slip and slide all over the face, the products formula does maintain its creamy-balm texture. Also, the Tint Lip Protector + More contains SPF 20, and has a strong rose-geranium scent. Thankfully, the scent doesn't linger after application.

From left to right: 003 Moon Dance, 004 So Moody, 005 Summertime Kiss, 008 Amazing. 

003 Moon Dance (limited edition): a pinkish-beige-ivory with micro silver shimmer.

004 So Moody (limited edition): a rosy-beige-nude.

005 Summertime Kiss: a tangerine-orange.

008 Amazing (limited edition): a fuchsia-pink.

As lovely, and dewy a highlighter Moon Dance is, the silver shimmers are noticeable; causing me not to love it as much as I wanted to. Furthermore, Moon Dance needs touching-up after 3-4 hours. I like using So Moody on my lids and cheeks; I especially love the dewy sheen (without the creasing) it gives my lids. Summertime Kiss (the most emollient of the four) is the biggest bummer of the bunch; when you first put it on it looks gorgeous on the cheeks, but after two hours it disappears. If I want to preserve Summertime Kiss' color, I'll need to set my cell's alarm to remind me every two hours. Out of the four shades I own, 008 Amazing is the most pigmented, least emollient, and longest lasting; it looks gorgeous on the cheeks.

Unless your wearing some kind of balm, or gloss, under or over the Tint Lip Protector + More, when wore alone, I found them very drying on the lips and cause them to peel; hence, I'll be skipping that application option.

I do remember liking the other shades in the collection: 001 Paranoia Paranoia, 006 Apres Swim, and 007 Door Open (002 Babyish was too pale for my complexion). But, I'll have to revisit them at the counter before committing to a purchase.

My feelings are conflicted with the way I feel towards this product. Some days, I like their sheer, wash of color and luminosity; giving me an effortless, natural "non-makeup" look that still looks put together. Yet, other times I find myself dissatisfied with the pigmentation of some of them, and wanting...I don't know...more?

Have you tried the ADDICTION Tint Lip Protector + More?
