What Essence says about Tint It:
''Color at your whim! The show-stopper: the glossy color changes when applied to the lips - from orange to pink, from blue to pink or from purple to pink. Its special formula softly tints your lips for several hours and thus provides a long-lasting and perfectly glossy look. As a special highlight softly shimmering effects complete the styling. Available in three colors.'' (Essence)
As mentioned, this color changing lipgloss is available in three different colors. I got mine in 02 Turn to Lucky, which changes from orange to pink.

I got this lipgloss back in September and I've been using it. Not a lot, but it's been used. I wiped the tube, but it's still stained pink from the gloss. The writing on the back of the tube does say this gloss stains skin, but not in the lip stain kind of way.
Here's a shot of the tube before I wiped it clean. You can see the gloss is jelly orange color and the stains are pink. It does change color, that's a fact.
The color change is slow though. I applied a little gloss to the back of my hand and took a photo of it. I took another photo a few minutes later and you can see it's a bit pinkier.
I hate showing a photo of my lips with just lipgloss, they're just not defined enough. I decided to post a photo anyway, just so you get the idea of how it looks like on lips. My lips are naturally quite pale, so this gloss does make them look better. It looks like I'm still alive. Barely, but alive.
What I think about this gloss:
Now that I've had it for a while, I can say I expected more from it. I thought this was gonna be a 'mood' changing lipgloss, but that's a bit unrealistic, right? It changes color, but I'm not too fascinated by that. It's orange in the tube and that's not important for me. It could also be pink, like it is on the lips. I want something that really changes color and becomes brighter when you get colder or vice versa.
The gloss itself is OK. It's not too sticky (I hate sticky glosses), it has a subtle vanilla scent (really subtle), which doesn't botter me one bit (scented glosses usually bother me). For 2€ and some cents, it's a good product. Don't expect too much of it and you might even love it. I can't. I don't like glosses in the first place, I don't like the applicator of this one and it's just not working for me. But you know how it is - what doesn't work for me, might work for you.
Thanks for looking and commenting!
