My thought

I have never been a coral lover so when i get to try something coral i don't expect it to work for me sometimes it does sometimes not, in this Cha Cha Tint case i was actually hoping for it to work for me but i was little disappointed because i think tints are not for me no matter how pretty they are they will never work for me.i always find them tricky
This is a mango colored tint, comes in a plastic bottle and contains 2.5ml of the product.This is mini version of the original so the bottle is very tiny.The original one comes in a 14.5ml bottle.the applicator is similar to nail polish applicator .It has a creamy semi thick consistency, not runny at all.the application is bit tricky i need to blend it quickly after applying can't wait, even for a second or else i get a splotchy application because it leaves a stain where i applied it so be careful and do one cheek at a time.If i apply it with my finger,i end up getting more stain on my finger than the face and its difficult to remove.i would recommend not applying the stain directly on our cheeks to avoid the stain patches, use a makeup sponge or fingers and do remember to rinse fingers immediately after applying.

After this much struggle with the application i have to admit i get a pretty coral flush on my cheeks and gives a fresh look.the staying power is something i won't complain about because it stays put for 7 to 8 hours on me without a budge.the size is travel friendly but this can not be a on-the-go product because you will always need to be careful with the application, no hurry and no with out mirror touch ups.
And now about the lips, it emphasise the dryness and cracks on the lips and application is uneven, my upper lip always gets less stained no matter how much i apply i don't know why may be its because of my lip stays put maximum 3 to 4 hours on me which is not bad.
so this is my experience with this tint after which i won't be considering buying the full sized bottle as i first thought, because its not worth spending so much money ( i think so).this little bottle is enough for me.
i will rate it 3/5
