Lottie London Freckle Tint Review

Okay, so this product isn't going to be for everyone, some people find the whole faux freckle make-up trend a bit weird but I love it! I've been wanting to try out a faux freckle product for a while now and initially I was going to purchase a product called Freck, arguably the most well known faux freckle product on the market but whilst looking for this and finding it sold out everywhere I stumbled upon the Freckle Tint from Lottie London.  After doing a bit of research I realised this was a much cheaper alternative that seemed very similar so I decided to try it out instead.

This freckle tint costs £6.95 and contains 3ml of product, which really isn't a lot of product but to be fair you only need to use a tiny amount per application so I don't think it works out too expensive at all especially if we are talking cost per application. It comes in a pale pink box with holographic writing down the side and the bottle itself is white with the same holographic writing, I really love the look of the packaging it's simple but still fun. It's also worth noting that this product is both cruelty-free and vegan and the Lottie London website has a dedicated vegan page. 

The product itself is really easy to use, it has a thin brush built-in, you can just dot on as little or as many 'freckles' as you'd like. Then all you need to do is tap the product into the skin using a sponge or your fingertips to give them that natural look and voila you're done. I will also mention that I have natural freckles but they get completely masked when I'm wearing make-up so I do like to try and go over my own natural freckles as best I can. I personally like to work in sections, applying some freckles and blending as I go so they don't set in place and end up looking too harsh, I think this is also a great way to do it so you can see where you might need to add more or blend more etc. The colour of the tint is a deep brown with red undertones which gives a very natural look, just be careful as you use the tint over time it does build up a bit around the cap and you may end up needing to wipe it clean and waste product, but you can avoid this by taking your own clean brush and using the excess rather than dipping back into the bottle. Overall, I find this freckle tint easy to use and I love the results that it gives, I've tried using other products in the past to create faux freckles like eyebrow pencils etc. but I found they never looked natural enough for me to be truly happy with the results, this is definitely something I'll continue to use and will repurchase again in the future. In fact, I'm now intrigued to try out some other products from Lottie London so if anyone has any recommendations let me know!
