This review is SO overdue! I'm sorry for my erratic posting recently, I've been so busy, my birthday was on Saturday so there was a lot of shopping and I'm going on vacation in a couple of days, so more shopping, gathering and packing going on! Sigh!
Anyway, this is my first time trying a lip tint and I have to say it has been a novel experience for me! I feel like in situations where lipstick or gloss maybe too heavy or sticky lip tint will come through for you!
The lip tint I'm reviewing today is the Etude House Fresh Cherry Lip Tint in "Cherry Red." It was sponsored by the lovely Taisoon from Two Face Mall!
Thanks Two Face Mall! ^w^
About Two Face Mall:
Two Face Mall is a Korean skincare and makeup store based in Korea. It stocks not only some very popular brands of cosmetics but also has great deals and discounts like:
- Free Shipping with tracking!
- $5 off on signing up
- Free Skinfood Avocado lip balm on purchase
The store also has a new "Buying Service":
The customer gives the details of the products and their own contact and address details, the store gives them an expected price on the products, the customer pays and the "buying" proceeds.
So you can find any products you fancy, ask for a price and get them delivered to you! A great way of finding products that are new or not yet available online outside of Korea!
Shipping: Shipping took less than two weeks and the products were packed well with bubble wrap. There was a tracking number so I could neurotically check my shipment every few hours, as usual! Lol!
Taisoon also sent me an extra Laneige sheet mask which I can't wait to try!
Now on to the product review!
$10.90 for 9.55 g!
Etude keeps updating their packaging ALL the time! It is very hard to keep track of it! >.< The lip tint has a newer packaging now, the one I have is the older version.
The bottle it comes in looks a lot like a fat nail polish bottle, the colour is red like the contents. It has a doe foot, lip gloss like applicator and the bottle is packed in an adorable cardboard box.
The Fresh Cherry tint is available in 3 (now four) shades. This colour, "Cherry Red" is a pinky red with a little coral quality thrown in. One swipe is sheer and gives a natural flushed appearance. Two swipes gives a lovely almost opaque colour.
What I love is that the tint has a glossy effect initially but even after it fades, the colour stays strong for hours!
The scent of the Fresh Cherry lip tint is definitely that of cherries and the taste is minty, the minty flavour gives it a tingly sensation on the lips too! Very cooling! ^_^
You can see in the hand swatch that even after washing off the tint leaves a rosy stain.
On the lip swatch you can see how it adds a subtle yet bright wash of colour.
As a first time lip tint user I must say I am very impressed with the Fresh Cherry lip tint! I will be using it again and again, especially for casual occasions. I like that the quantity is big and the product is pretty long lasting, so I feel like I have gotten a good deal. I will probably be buying the Peach colour soon too!
These tints are a big part of the ulzzang makeup, especially for the gradient lips look, I'll try and do a tutorial on that soon!

As for Two Face Mall, they are generous sponsors and I will be buying from the store as well! I do hope that the site is tweaked a bit so it is easier to navigate but the deals that they have and the buying service makes me a very willing customer!
Have you tried lip tints? What do you think of the Fresh Cherry lip tint?
