Review: Etude House Rosy Tint Lips Baby Peony

15. May 2014


One of the highlights of last autumn’s collection from Etude House were the Rosy Tint Lips. Back then I reviewed one of those tints. Today I’ll show you another one of Etude House’s Rosy Tint Lips called Baby Peony (No.5) and I will show you a comparative swatch between this and the previous one called Rose Petal (No.3). The “& Rose” collection was inspired by the fairytale “The Sleeping Beauty” and 8 different shades are available for this collection.


I really love the packaging and I was attracted to buy this in first place because of the beautiful rose pattern on the paper card box. The packaging is very girly and fairytale-ish and contains descriptions of the product in English and Korean.
The applicator for the Rosy Tint Lips consists of a cushion as tip for blending out the lip tint. The lip tint itself has a solid form and due to the body of the lip tint which is made from hard plastic, it is difficult to squeeze out the product. This was my concern with the previous shade and this one isn’t any different. Nevertheless, the consistency, the pigmentation and the staying power are satisfying.
Baby Peony is a light pink shade which shows up even on more pigmented lips like mine. I have often a problem with brighter shades to be visible, especially orange shades are not working, but here you can clearly see the color. But unfortunately, since it is a light color, you have to scrub your lips before, or the color will stick to the flakes of the lips.
Below you can see Baby Peony and Rose Petal together. As you can see, the plastic body of the tints represents the color inside the tube. Check out my review for the Rose Petal Tint >>here<<.
Although Rose Petal is a red shade when applied fully, it looks similar to Baby Peony when blended out. Both are nice colors though and I think that they can be also combined for gradient lips.


The sponge applicator is also something I have mixed feelings about, as I mentioned in my previous post. It can be unhygienic, but the sponge cap can be taken off and cleaned. It makes it easy to create gradient and soft effects with help of sponge applicators like this. If you don’t want a gradient effect, but clear lines, the applicator will probably mess around the borders of your lips. In this case I’d recommend you to use a lip brush.
The scent of the Rosy Lip Tints is nice. It has a soft scent of roses, so if you are not a fan of rose scented products, don’t buy this :D The staying power is okay, as long as you don’t drink or eat. I’ve definitively seen worse lip tints. Btw., the Rosy Tint Lips can be used as blush, too, which works nicely :)
All in all the main issue I have with the Rosy Tint Lips is the tube. The hard plastic makes it inconvenient for application. Other then this I love the product itself. It is a solid and good working lip product with every day usage potential.

    I need to dig mine back out I forgot all about it! Peripera also released a version of these cushion lipsticks recently!

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 12:31

      I saw the advertisemnet of Peripera’s cushion liptints, but I was doubtfull, because I really do not like the effort it takes to get the product out. Did you try them? I hope they did a better job than Etude House in this point. :D But I do love the product on it’s own nevertheless :D

    Oh very beautiful color.

  • Evelyn Vidal 15. May 2014 at 21:52

    I love this shades, bought one recently (after blossom) but I’m waiting until the mail deliver my parcel. Was on sale in Honestskin at usd 6.5 (normal price 9.5). Can’t wait to try it *w*

    Think I’m going to use a lip brush since don’t like the cushion idea at all. Maybe try it, don’t know yet…

    Thank you for this lovely review :D

      A lot of people have bought After blossom back than. Hope you’ll like the color. Please make a review about it, too ♥

    Die Farbe ist perfekt! Sieht auf jeden Fall wunderschön aus :3

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 12:36

      Ich mag die Farbe auch, und das obwohl ich kaum pink trage :D Vielen Dank für’s Lesen ♥

  • Bethany 16. May 2014 at 16:08

    I still love these, despite the incredibly annoying packaging. D:<

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 12:37

      I agree! A pitty they didn’t think about remaking these with a softer tube :D

  • merve shenme 16. May 2014 at 17:17

    everybody loves this tints :))

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 12:40

      They are really lovely, especially the packaging design :)

  • Moi Sanom 16. May 2014 at 18:45

    It looks very beautiful on your lips!

  • Sharlynn Ng 17. May 2014 at 16:30

    Really like the pink one and I do agree with your concerns about the applicator. Product will forever be stuck in the sponge and it would have been better if they just made it a dispenser from which you can use your own brush or many a slanted plastic tip for better application!

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 12:44

      Absolutely! I would love if they would make a re´make of these tints in another container. It would make things much easier :D Thanks for reading ♥

  • Rebecca B. Bird 18. May 2014 at 2:21

    I never ended up buying any of these tints, but I read some blog posts where the reviewers suggested permanently ripping out the sponge part. That makes sense to me, mostly for hygiene reasons!

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 12:45

      I thought about depotting them, too, but I’m too lazy it seems :D Or I don’t have the time to focus on doing this :D…..okay-I think I’m too lazy-no excuses :D

  • Elina Wagner 19. May 2014 at 21:27

    I love the colour! I have two shades of this tint myself but the hard plastic packaging really turned me off from buying more. The shades you got are beautiful. :) Makes me wish I had gotten a lighter, less nude shade.

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 13:03

      I was thinking about buying tea rose first, but then I was not sure if a nude shade looks nice on me :D So I went for the darker shades :D I love the tint itself…just the tube is so annoying >_< Thanks for reading!

  • Donah @ SweetJellyBean 23. May 2014 at 1:02

    This shade looks fab on you hun! Ah about this applicator, it’s about time I take mine off since it’s a pain in the butt trying to squeeze the product out with it on.

    • Fräulein Schnee 23. May 2014 at 13:04

      Thank you ♥ I was thinking about depotting mine, too…but I’m so lazy to do so! :D Thanks for commenting and reading ♥
