Review: Etude House Magic Tint Balm No.1 Magic Red ♥sponsored♥

10. July 2013
Hey there ♥
As I announced on Instagram I have some upcoming posts for you. Everybody living in Europe and UK should be especially interested right now, because the product I’ll be showing here was sent to me by for reviewing purpose. Yes, it’s really a shop selling Korean make-up products based in the UK! And this means you will get your ordered products within a very short time! Yeii, that’s so awesome :D KoKo is a rather new shop founded end of last year. Currently they are shipping to Europe and UK only and if you are living in UK you can get free shipping at the moment, too! The shipping from UK to Germany was really fast. It arrived after 4 business days. They put their logo sticker on the envelope, too. It’s really cute ♥

I will review Etude House’s Magic Tint Balm No. 1 today, which is called “Magic Red”. This is a lip balm in a small but sturdy plastic jar. This lip balm should not only moisturize, but it gives your lips a slight tint. This product is available in four different shades in total. KoKo offers two shades: “Magic Red” and “Magic Pink”

Here is the description taken from KoKo:

Etude House Magic Tint Balm is a textured lip tint which supplies moisture and natural color to lips.
Benefits: Contains Vitamin E
Magic Red
Magic Pink
Size: 10g


The packaging is obviously very cute, typical for Etude House products. The plastic jar is not easily to break or damage. The lid is decorated with a cute ornament and the name of the product in a twirly font. It might be, that this ornament and the font will vanish after a time if you will consider to take this product with you often. But that’s typical for those plastic jars.
The product is a colored balm, which is red in my case. It is very smooth and easy to apply even if you would use your fingers and have longer nails (the germaphobics will be shocked, I know, shame on me >_<”’). Of course you can use a lip brush, too!!:D
The color is comparable to Etude House Kissful Tint Choux in red (review here), which is more a fuchsia red than a real tomato red. The scent is pretty much similar, too. It reminds of some childhood bubble gums or something similar. It doesn’t have a taste, which I personally like. The stain of the product is very subtle. If you like a little more pigmentation I would recommend you the Kissful Tint Choux instead or the Magic Tint Balm.
After applying your lips will look super plum and glossy. Of course the balm does what a lip balm should do in first place: it gives your lips a smooth and moisturized feeling. This effect lasts for about 2 hours (including drinking something during this time) before I have the feeling of having to reapply. Also the color is barely visible anymore, since it is very subtle in the first place.

All in all, this is a very nice balm. I like the fell on the lips and it does it’s job as a balm. Also it is small and cute and uneasily to damage, which makes it perfect for your handbag. If you are looking for more pigmentation you should go for another tint. This tint costs GBP 5.50 at should also check out their facebook page, they provide from time to time giveaways which are open internationally.

For all UK residents: KoKo will be at a Korean Pop-up shop in London in August the 4th 2013 from 11am-6pm – they’ll have an own stall with their products from the online store! They’ll be giving 20% off everything from the retail price if you purchase on the day. You can find the information here:

    I love lip tint balms! This one is very pretty and looks like a gloss!

    • Fräulein Schnee 10. July 2013 at 21:22

      It looks like a gloss but it is not sticky. That’s a point I really like :)

    I really love how glossy it looks and the shade is lovely! Tho I hate balms because have to use my fingers. Does flyaway hairs stick to the lips?

    • Fräulein Schnee 11. July 2013 at 19:59

      To a certain extend they stick, like with most lip products. But it’s not as bad as I had it sometimes with other products.
