Review: Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint

12. March 2015


This product has probably been reviewed dozends of times in the blogger comunity, nevertheless I would love to share my opinion about it with you. The Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint is most likely one of the best known and still best selling products from Etude House. Koreans love their lip tints and if you like tint you’ll find so many different ones. And although I love tints, too, I did not purchase too many yet, simply because this is the only lip product I actually seem to use up after a while :D By the way, is anybody interested in a lip product collective post? :D

Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint

Some words about Etude House to start with: Etude House is one of the best known Korean brands for cute packaging. If you are a lover of cute, girly and pink packaging, reminding you of being a child and the princess you always dreamt to be, THIS is your brand. Their packaging is usually so adoreable that you cannot keep yourself from impuls-buys – only because you saw the packaging…Also here, the packaging design looks lovely. As the name says, the packaging is covered with cherries all over. The design of the cardboard box is kind of pinup- vintage style and really lovely. There are four different shades for this tint and each of them has packaging colors fitting to the color of the product. The Etude House Fresh Cherry tint I bought is in shade RD301, Cherry Red.

Apart from the cute cardboard box packaging the liptint itself comes in a cute bottle, too. The description on the cardboard box is in Korean and in English. The lip tint is supposed to offer moisture and shiny lips. It is a cream/milk type tint, in contrast to watertype tints like Benetint, for example. You can find the ingredients of the lip tint on Etude House Official. According to COSDNA there are no harmful ingredients.

The bottom of the bottle and the top of the cardboard box reveal the shade of the lip tint. On the bottom of the bottle you’ll find the production date printed, too! When the Etude House Official Online store opened a lot of customers were confused with that, because they thought it is the expiration date.

The cap of the bottle comes with the applicator brush. The tint itself is creamy and feels moisturizing. It gives the lips a nice glossy and plumping effect. The Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint smells and tastes fruity and I love that point. colorwise it is less cherry red but more cherry pink toned. I had some samples of this tint before, so I knew about the color.

The tint looks pretty on the lips. As you can see in the pictures below the color of the tint is more visible in the center of my lips. I encountered this with many tint products. Nevertheless, it gives your lips a nice pop of color and the stain is lasting some time, too. As usual, it won’t stay as you apllied it after eating/drinking, but a hint of color will remain.

Etude House Fresh Cherry Tint

This tint has several advantages: it is cheap, it gives a nice pop of color to your lips, it smells and tastes delicious! Moreover, I didn’t feel that the lip tint is drying on my lips. The downside may be that it tends to gather up in the inside of the lips, so some won’t like the way the lip tint applies. If you love lip tints you need one of these in your collection! I bought mine from Etude House official online store. It retails for 6 US$ there, but shipping is high and I would recommend you to wait for some free shipping event and make a larger purchse. You can also get this from W2Beauty for 4.50 US$ or from testerkorea for 4300 Won (~4.50 US$).

    That color is fantastic. As usual, I’m disappointed with the thing that seems to be a continuing issue with their brand: lasting color. When you say lip stain, I expect it to last, ya know!

    It looks fabulous on you, by the way!

      Most korean lipstains don’t last unfortunately…at least they make you buy more products in the hope for a longlasting one to find :D

    This was the first stain I purchased and I was actually really disappointed with it. It was pretty drying on me and patchy too! Same with the colour pop (I think) tint by etude house! Maybe tints just aren’t my thing. It may be the photo but is it patchy on your lip swatch too?

    • Frl. Schnee 14. March 2015 at 12:10

      It is not patchy, but the formula is probably not the easiest to work with. Maybe, if you apply it with a lip brush it works better for you? I applied the samples I had for the tint with a lip brush and it always looked nicer. If you want to try a similar, but better tint I can recommend you the Aritaum World Glam Coating Tint!

    Oh wow! Sind die Farben irgendwie intensiver geworden? Sieht auf jeden Fall richtig klasse aus, ein toller Farbton!

    • Frl. Schnee 2. April 2015 at 18:09

      Oh, ich weiß nicht ob sie die Zusammensetzung geändert haben. Kann aber sein, da sie ja auch irgendwann mal die Verpackung geändert haben, oder?

    • Frl. Schnee 2. April 2015 at 18:09

      It is really vibrant, almost pink-ish, but I like it, too :)
