The first time I use it, it feels so pigmented and long lasting. But after the second reapply, my lips getting very very dry and then it becomes cracking.

It's long lasting and I love it. But I hate the dry effect.

I try to use lip balm before use it, but the long lasting effect doesn't appear.

I got these lip tints during my Seoul trip and it's incredibly inexpensive when sold in the home country. (I'm not too sure about SG prices for this but Etude House isn't that expensive in SG either). I own the shades #2 (Real Red) and #4 (Vampire Red) since I think it's pointless to buy nude color lip tints.

They are a bit tricky to work with at first, but it's easy once you got used to it. The lip tint is quite drying despite how they look, so I always prep my lips with a really good lip balm before applying. The lip tint has a jelly like texture, but applies smoothly with the doe foot applicator. It kinda tastes sweet and smells like grape jelly. These will not dry down glossy so for people who are expecting a glossy finish, just skip this. I like the matte look so I really like these lip tints. If this is worn alone, do note that it will settle into the lip crevices when it wears off.

Due to my lips being quite pigmented, I use a lip liner (Etude House Soft Touch Auto lip liners) prior to using this so it applies more evenly. I don't actually fancy the gradient lip look so I don't use this for that. I reach out for Vampire Red more (despite how dark it looks in the tube) because with the lip liner, it looks like a dark red/mauvey red lips that's very flattering on me.

Will definitely repurchase since it's inexpensive and it has a nice color.

It's cheaper but also worse than tints I had before. You cannot really build the color because it becomes patchy and unattractive. I have the darkest color,vamp red, so maybe the problem is in it. Not the one I'd bother to rebuy.

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! Check out my blog at for more in-depth reviews!

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.
