Etude House Instagram Post
Some of you know that Etude House recently brought out a new line of oil tints. I had recently bought the entire line of PeriPera Sugar Glow Tint and I wasn’t sure whether I’d be investing in a whole other line, but then Richard came home with the entire collection for me as a gift and I am over the moon about it! What sets this line apart right from the get go is not just the cute little Coke bottle packaging, but the fact that it also contains a PURPLE lip tint. Korea hasn’t produced anything this purple for the lips to my knowledge in the last 6 years and if I had to pick one just but looking at them, it would definitely have been the purple one.
Here’s the collection:
There are five tints in this collection and I won’t be shocked if Etude House eventually decide to add to it which is something they have been known to do, like with their Dear Darling tints that are packed in ice lolly themed containers. Etude House seriously knows how to create cute looking products!
Here is what the containers look like when opened:
MILKY SODA BL601:

Milky Soda at first glance looks like a gloss rather than a tint. It is not entirely wrong, although I must say there is the slightest little lavender tint left after it dries up. In essence I’d more be more likely to call it a gloss either way. It comes in a clear bottle shaped container with a sea blue screw off top. The product it’s looks opaque blue with the smallest particles silver and pink duochrome glitter. It can be worn on its own, over the top of a brightly coloured tint to make it more glossy.
GREAT GRAPE PP502:

Great Grape is definitely my favourite in the line. It’s a bright vivid violet and I don’t know how they did it but it has a tingly sensation on the lips like after drinking cola or pop, and it tastes like Fanta Grape, which has always been one of my favourite soft drinks. It goes on glossy at first but when it dries it just leaves your lips feeling natural but with a strong purple colour that stays. It temporarily stains your lips so if you’d rather not have it on for too long, I’d suggest wearing a lip primer or a clear balm underneath it. Grape Soda will eventually turn a bit more fuschia than purple, which is typical of purple tints. It is very comparable to Bell Tint 06.
ZERO RED RD301:
Zero Red appears quite orange toned in the packing and on the swatch but when applied it is the perfect pinup red. I always have a soft spot for red lip products because it is so versatile, can be worn year long, can be used a cheek tint and matches every skin colour there is. I love that it smells like Coke too.
GRAPEFRUIT FANTASY OR201:
I am never the biggest fan of orange toned lip products. I guess they just to match my fair skin tone, but I must say Grapefruit Fantasy is an exception because it has more of a pink undertone, exactly like the flesh of a pink grapefruit. This one smells and tastes especially tingly or almost zingy on the lips. There used to be a Virgin drink in a bright pink bottle in the 90s that this reminds me of, and it almost reminds me of my favourite sherbet powder.
PEACH TOK TOK TOK PK001:
I really adore a muted pink toned lip products. Peach Tok Tok Tok is the perfect muted pink and is subtle enough to be safe for work or even for your wedding. Although the packaging appears more orange, the product looks more pink, but I’m guessing that’s because I have a rosy undertones and that it would differ from person to person. Tok is an onomatopoeia to describe the sound of a bubble popping. I think it’s adorable and it describes the product so well because it really does have that sodastream tingle to it.
I am overall very impressed with these products. They have put a lot of effort into the packaging, the individual flavours, the feeling of tingling after application, and the over all quality that a great tint should have. These make great stocking stuffers and are ideal for any age from children to grandmas.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this post. Which one was your favourite? Have a lovely week!
