So Etude House released new lip tint called Dear Darling Water Gel Tint which i believe is the newer version of the old Dear Darling Tint. It firstly came out in the middle of 2016 with 10 shades and another 4 shades released as fall/winter colors make it total 14 shades at this moment.
The packaging is still the same clear plastic tube and plastic cap. I still have the old Dear Darling Tint which i bought when i first came to Korea on 2013 it was my first lip tint ever hahaha. The old version has “slimmer” tube (it’s hard to explain 😂) while the new version has straight tube. The old cap is a metallic purple while the new one is pinky kinda coral color.
The applicator is still the same as the old one which is the doe foot applicator. I like the applicator because it is not too big and not too small either and the pointy side can cover the side of my lips and my cupids bow.
I got mine in the shade Kumquat Red, Berry Red and Sweet Potato Red. The formula just like its name, gel like consistency but not too thick. Because it is a lip tint of course the color does not appear opaque like liquid lipstick but it still leave pretty stains on the lips. It has sweet scent i guess cherry but it is fruity for sure.
Kumquat Red 낑깡 레드It looks orange at the tube but it turned out to be a pinky coral color. The reason i got this shade is because of that haha. When applied full lips it appears bolder more of a bright pink so for this shade i prefer gradation lips.
Lastly is Sweet Potato Red 고구마 레드. It released as fall/winter shade or they called it Winter MLBB. First time i saw it i know i had to get it because it looked so pretty. This shade is tricky i think. In the tube the color is soft purple mauve, when i swatched it on my hand it appeared as rosy red color but when i applied it on my lips it shown as pinky mauve color. Do not get me wrong i love the color and this one is my favorite among the three. Instead of MLBB color i guess it is more of a 말린 장미 color or dusty rose color.
Overall, i think these lip tints work really well considering the price is so affordable. I got them at @helloprettytm for IDR 42.000 or around $3,2 so cheap right? Will i repurchase? Yes! I would like to get another shades i hope Etude House will release more new shades this year.
The only cons i have probably the longevity. The lip tint will dissapear after you have big meal but i think it is fine if you only have drink.
Have you tried this lip tint? Do you like it or do you hate it?
