After reading Gohalainn's post about these Etude House's Rosy Tint Lips, I just can't miss them on EH sale a week ago. I was surprised because the fall line had just released but they went on sale already! So I got these 20% off from KRW 8.500. I'm glad I've got the Flowering Eyes before because they're out of stock.
Even though I've constantly reminding myself that I don't need more lip colors and stuffs like that, I ended up buying 2 colors from this line. They have a total of 8 color selections and I picked up #7 Tea Rose (티 로즈) and #8 After Blossom (애프터 블라썸). This is a part of their 2013 Fall '&Rose' collection.
The packaging is a 'whatever' for me, I really liked the box much much better. I always appreciate matching tube and the product respective color, that makes everything much easier! In the description it is said that it had a rich color and velvet finish, also 3 ways to apply it : 1. gradation lip look 2. full lips color and 3. as a blusher. I'm not a fan of both 1st and 3rd way to apply it so I always go with option 2.
I must say it's my first time to own- or even see a tint with a sponge applicator. I personally liked the applicator because the sponge could absorbs back the 'excess' product. So that the product last longer on my lips & didn't overly transfers the color to everywhere when I drink / eat. Though I saw some comments from people with smaller/thin lips said that it was kinda hard for them to apply it, I say use a brush!
Only the plastic tube is pretty hard to press. And it was quite a horror because I'm really afraid that the product will squirts outward if I pressed too strong. I saw the comments on Etude House' official website and apparently almost everyone is complaining about how hard the tube is. What I do is I made sure to store them with their cap on the bottom - or shake them toward the cap a few times to make sure the product is ready to 'come out.
#8 After Blossom is one of the 2 top colors (the other was #1 Before Blossom) and the staff strongly recommend me to get this one. So yeah.
Overall, it does what it said, velvet finish and vivid color - I'm pretty impressed! I do recommend to use a lip balm before application because it can be drying. It doesn't has any recognizable scents and it's not sticky at all. And I'm sure a lot of you guys can really appreciate the packaging! Even though it said 'tint' but it doesn't necessary means that it'll stain your lips but they do last for a pretty long time.
Please Etude, just.. fix the tube. I got overly scared when pressing the tube, really.
What do you think? :) Which one is better? :D
