When I wrote my post about the Orange Lip Trend, I mentioned a few coral shades that are easier to wear than a full-coverage, bright tangerine color, but I did not bring enough attention to the beautiful Kjaer Weis Lip Tint in Sweetness. I thought that it deserved the spotlight, so I took a few photos to show you how gorgeous the color looks when applied.
I love anything pinky/peachy for lips and Sweetness is a vibrant coral that tends to look more pink-y coral than orange-y coral on my lips. It is similar to Ilia Shell Shock, but more vibrant. It is shiny, but not glossy; moisturizing, but not slippery. It is more pigmented than average lip tints and lightly stains the lips. The intensity of the color can be built up from quite sheer to a more vibrant, and slightly more opaque coral. If you would like to see a swatch on my arm, check out this post. The staying power is very good, I can wear it for several hours without needing to re-apply.
As with any Kjaer Weis product, the gorgeous compact is refillable and yes, I use the compact as a mirror when I have to apply the product. You can also purchase the refill alone and keep your lip tint in a Z-Palette. It would be a shame not to own the compact, but yes you can purchase the refill alone. These are the ingredients:

I am not too much into bright lip colors, but this one is an exception. This is the perfect Summer shade, especially with a little (even fake) tan. You can find it at The Detox Market and Spirit Beauty Lounge.
