I purchase #4 Vampire Red and I was not disappointed. A deep berry red, the formula is sheer and gel like so its easy to apply and buildable depending on the look you are trying to achieve. It lasted the whole day for me without having to reapply and had to use baby oil to get every last trace off. Under $5 US dollars? Whats not to like?

•Cheapest of the Etude House Lip Tints (At least at the shop at that time)
•Gorgeous choice of colors
•Fancy packaging
•Sturdy bottle that can survive drops
•Slanted wand allows easy application
•Holds on pretty well without eating or drinking

•Very long bottle
•Quite drying
•Emphasizes chapped lips
•Doesn’t last a whole day

Overall, I really like this lip tint and I think it’s worth the price! Great choice of colors for those of you who want to create the bitten lip effect. Repurchase? Probably not. I’d probably look for a water based lip tint next time since it is more hydrating, but I might still want to try out shade #04 Vampire Red.

I love love love this lip tint. It's very cheap. I use it for almost everyday for my lips and cheeks. I got this in vampire red, and I really like the color. It doesn't give off the vampy look honestly, it's a deeper red without any orange tone in it. I only leave 3 dots on the center of my lips and blend it with finger. I do the same with my cheeks, I apply a dot for each of my cheek bones and the apple of my cheeks. It leaves you a pretty looking flush. I love the gel texture too, it's easier to blend than the water tint. I'm taking one lippie off because it looks weird on chapped lips so make sure to exfoliate and use lip balm. It doesn't stay long too, I always had to reapply after I eat. But it stays very long on the cheeks.

(+): pigmented, nice color, easy to blend, cheap, last long on cheeks
(-): doesn't stay long on lips

First of all I got this in Berry Red, and would never use it alone and neither should anyone else or else you'll look like a dumbass imo. Anyways this liptint has a jelly like texture and look and SMELL SOOOO GOOD like grapes or something. Its extremely good for gradient lips and I personally like using it for either gradient lips of giving my berry lipstick a little oomph of color at the part of my lips. It really doesnt last super long, but an OK amount of time. Once again dont use it alone unless you have the softest lips in the world because obviously itll settle in your cracks. I really like it, and recommend it to first time tint users!

I had never heard of this Korean brand before but I came across it on Amazon while looking for a less expensive price on Vincent Longo lip tints. The price was a total of $8 and that was inexpensive enough for me to give this product a chance. I search long and hard for lip tints all the time. I often pay $20+ for lip tints. My lips are light with hardly any pigment, they are also dry, so lip color does not often last on my lips for long. I like to layer a lip tint as the base and then put lipstick or gloss on top in order to try to stretch out the times between applications. I got the red color in this lip tint and I really like it. It is a jelly consistency when first applied. I apply a thin layer with a swirled, tightly spun q-tip that I get at Daiso. I let the layer dry completely, add another thin layer and then add lipstick or if I am in a hurry lip gloss. This lip tint lasts about 2 hours on my lips but that is good, many lip tints last no longer than a lipstick. I will definitely order at least one more color. This lip tint is good and the price is a bargain.

I have this in #4 Vampire Red.

There really is a bit of learning curve with this product, because if you've never used the watery-type lip tint that is popular in Japan and Korea it's easy to confuse with a gloss. Just for reference- this is not a gloss, it will not make your lips glossy, so if that's what you're looking for give this product a miss.

The lip tint has a somewhat strange jelly-like consistency with a scent that reminds me of grape jello. It comes in a long tube with a doe's foot applicator, and you apply it like lip gloss. That, however, is where the similarites to lip gloss end. This stuff takes a while to dry completely, and until then you have a semi-opaque tacky-feeling product on your lips. If you are not careful at this point you'll end up smuding it- this is the main reason I gave it three stars even though I actually do like the product a lot. It's not really something you want to use when you need to grab and go, because it takes a while to set up fully.

Once it's dry you can add more for a more dramatic look, but I have found that applying more before the first layer is dry will cause it to smear and bleed.

While it's kind of a pain to apply, the ultimate result is really pretty, and I'm looking in to getting more colors. Maybe the formula will be more quick-drying with the others.

*long lasting tint

There's not a lot of claims I could find with this. Etude House tends to make a lot of claims with their skin products, but I guess it's not the same with their large range of infamous lip products.
The tint doesn't last TOO long as it seems to fade away around near the sixth hour mark from drinking tea, chewing gum, licking the lips, applying facial packs and skincare masks over the skin and lips.

*covering texture, application, etc etera.

FEELS: (love) the way it glides over the lips is so refreshning and nice xD
SMELL: (love) it smells of candy and peaches. Really LOVE this factor.
TEXTURE: (love) watery like it suggests and spreads quite a bit out (little goes a long way)
PIGMENTATION: (love) the pigmentation, the vibrancy of this product, is quite good but as I have naturally light pink lips and the colours #2 and #3 tend to be pinky-red-tangerines that are more on the natural side, I'm not going to say they're HIGHLY pigmented. But what they offer is enough!
FINISH: (eh) the matte is what I expected from all lip tints.

APPLICATION: (eh) there is no directed way, but the most infamous way of applying lip tint is moisturizing, concealing, then applying the lip tint, and then glazing the lips with clear lip gloss.
#1: Moisturize the lips.
#2: Apply where needed.
#3: Add clear gloss after 5 minutes.
EXTRAS: this takes a while to really set into the lips, so that's a downer.


TIME: (eh) I expect more from a lip tint, especially from Etude House.
LOOKS: (love) after waiting it to set, it really looks nice. Doesn't seep in, accentuate dryness on the lips, and you can really create that gradient you want on the lips.
WEAR: (bad) before this product sets, if I was to lick my lips, then ALL the colour is washed away. After working out (45 minutes approx.) with this on, the colour is significantly reduced, no matter how long I've let it set onto the lips.
REACTION: (love) the watery consistensy is really nice over the lips. Cooling, blendable, and very versatile as you can use it for all over the lips. The fragrance was another thing I LOVED.
REMOVAL: (not-gonna-say-love) don't really need to remove it, but if you wanted to purposely take it off, some water is fine.


TRAVEL: (eh) not the worst at travel, but definitely not the most compact.
SPECIFICS: (eh) the applicator at the end of the stick is nice and really fits near the hollow of my lips, but like clear mascara, if you don't put it on an area, it won't show unless you PACK the product on. I think it has something to do with how the applicator is shaped as well as you will not get a clean edge with this applicator.
VANITY: (not-gonna-say-love) this lip tint is really great for vanity, but since it's so long, I can't trust it will stay standing up the entire time so that's kind of a downer for me personally.

Price is okay, rounding around $5 dollars US.
It's your typical lip tint as it stains the lips, lasts for a bit, has a watery refreshning texture, and blends well. The lip tint isn't too good in terms for really adding on drama over the lips, and doesn't seem to last too long.
For makeup: OKAY.
For dazzling up your vanity?: YUPPERS.

It's cheap, has several lip colors & gives natural result. You can have intense lip color if you put 2 or 3 layers. And you can use it as a cheek stain that gives natural blush color. Don't forget to apply lip balm first, coz lip tint makes your lip dry.

I bought this off of E bay for about 10$ through a foreign seller. I've never used a lip tint before, and was expecting something creamier, like a gloss. This is watery and sheer, but can be layered for a more dramatic look. The best thing is it stains the skin, so stays on much longer than traditional lipsticks or glosses. It also makes a very natural looking blusher! I have the darkest color, which looks like a deep maroon in the tube, but washes out to a lovely dark pink. The only drawback is that it is a little bit dry, but a little balm underneath fixes that up! Overall, a very unique product!
