Etude House Sugar Tint Balm Review + Swatches
Here's a review on Etude House Sugar Tint Balm in #3 Cranberry Pie and #6 Pink Grapefruit.
Bought From: Free
Other Locations: Available in all Etude House stores and counters nationwide
Pigmented lip balms are becoming a thing nowadays. Maybe it's where the trend is heading, maybe because it's summer, or maybe brands are creating a starting point for young girls who want to wear a lipstick-but-not-quite-lipstick product. Whatever the maybe is, I'm just glad that there are gentler and more hydrating options for girls who love wearing lipstick (like moi!) during summer! Etude House has just released their version lately called Sugar Tint Balm, a lip balm that acts like a lipstick as well!
ETUDE HOUSE SUGAR TINT BALM IN DETAIL
This newest from Etude House claims to be a lip balm with the staying power of a lip tint and boasts of a hydrating, soothing, moisturizing combination of extracts namely Jojoba Oil, Argan Oil, and Vitamin E. It comes in 8 candy and pastry- inspired shades.
Swatches of this bold lip balm after the cut.
Left: #6 Pink Grapefruit
Right: #3 Cranberry Pie
These products come in a lovely click-to-seal tube packaging, which prevents the cap from accidentally ejecting from the tube and the product from messing up your makeup kit.
Both products have a really soft, smooth, and highly moisturizing consistency-it softens my lips and any rough areas immediately upon application. Coverage is medium to heavy. Both have a strong, fruity scent and it might put you off if you're not into this kind of fragrance.
ETUDE HOUSE SUGAR TINT BALM IN ACTION
A semi- deep, Cranberry Red shade.
Lovely shade, I must say. It's nice to know that Etude House is starting to experiment with bolder colors nowadays like Cranberry Pie and that means more options in the brand for grown- up gals like me. Cranberry Pie is truly a sexy Red, although I can't help but think that it's fun at the same time too just because I know it's by Etude House. :D
#6 Pink Grapefruit
A Pink-Melon shade.
This is a pretty nude shade, although it makes my teeth appear garish. :p At least it's one of those Pinky nudes that don't wash out morena skin tone.
Both products stay put for a while, but it fades gradually during wear due to its runny, moist consistency and sorry, it does not stay on like a lip tint to me. Formula also tends to leave a stark line on the corners of my lips when it has faded and has the tendency to go inside my mouth when I apply too much of the product.
I really like how moisturizing and soft the product is, plus I noticed that my lips stayed soft and dryness- free when I wore this product for 4 days straight-it must be Argan Oil.
Overall, this product is very moisturizing and hydrating, and I love the fact that through this product, Etude House has contributed to the amazing world of pigmented lip balms and has gotten more adventurous with colors this time. I believe that a little improvement in the staying power department will make this product a superstar!
