Korean Make up Trash, Treat or Stash: Etude House's Rosy Tint Lips

Trash, Treat or Stash. The Korean make-up products I've discovered are better off in the bin, the ones you should treat yourself to every now and again, and the ones that are so good that you should definitely make sure you have a stash of them.

Etude House Rosy Tint Lips

It feels like the old days at school today. It's a test day so I have time to blog at my desk so I thought I'd admit that I'm a little bit obsessed with Etude House, if you hadn't noticed. My days are numbered, soon I won't be able to walk into Nampo and browse what the shop bedecked in ornate candy pink mirrors and stands has to offer. Making the most of it being in my neighborhood and having a sale on, I decided to have a look the other day and walked out with two red lip products. One of them being the Rosy Tint Lips in Before Blossom.

Cost: This costs ₩8,500 for a 7g bottle, which is about £4.50. But with the current sale it took the price down to just under £3.00 at ₩5,600, I think this is a really good price for the product.
Prettiness: I love the packaging for the whole & Rose range, it's smothered in roses and is really bright and colourful. The smell is also pretty nice. I usually find rose smelling things quite offensive but this isn't too strong. The colour is a really bright mars red, with an orange tint to it. I like it as it looks really bright on your face too.
Usability: It's really easy to use, just squeeze the tube and dab onto the lips with the sponge applicator. The product is quite thick and creamy but comes out smooth. It's suggested on the packaging that you can wear the product in 2 ways, full coverage like a lipstick or slightly faded, more like an normal tint. I have to say that I don't really like the graded look so would only wear it as a lipstick. It leave a really nice matte, bright colour.
Effectiveness: Because of how thick the product is and the fact it's matte, I found that it felt like my lips had dried out, although when I checked in a mirror I was surprised to see that everything looked fine. The colour does eventually fade, but because it's a tint as well it doesn't fade like a normal lipstick, which was reassuring.

stash

Overall: i love the colour of Before Blossom, I love the sponge applicator and how the product wears off my lips to a tint. I definitely want to try another shade in the range, especially while the sales are on, so in that case I would say get a stash of these tints while you can!
