Lippy product to review today guys!! My first Etude House product to review: Dear Darling Tint in color Orange. To be honest, actually I'm not really fond of Etude House, if I could choose three cosmetics brand from Korea which are sold in Indonesia, it would be The Skin Food, Tony Moly and The Face Shop, and I would never choose Etude House. I don't like sheer colors for make ups, and most products from Etude House are,.. sheer. But I thought of trying this one out and it turns out better than what I expected.

At the first glance, I thought the color is going to be really bold, because the consistency is not watery like Tony Moly: Tony Tint ones (I'll review this one too, promise!!), this is more like gel. But actually its not, the color is sheer but not really bad. Because I remember about the Tony Tint ones, I have to make some dots on my lips and spread the color with my finger because the color is extremely bold if I apply it with the applicator.

The sponge applicator is curvy to make it easier to apply it on your lips, all you have to do is just apply it all over your lips, even though the color is sheer, the color is really natural and buildable, so if you want bolder color you can apply it all over again after it dries for some seconds. And have I mentioned that it has really good smell, like fruity, orangey or something.

It has 3 shades, the red one, pink and orange one. The packaging is plastic, so I don't have to worry about it cracks up inside my bag, because I'm such a klutz!! Believe it or not but I always have bruises on my feet or my hands, from get hit by doors, tables, or fall on stairs.

I'm not saying that this lip tint is moisturizing my lips, but at least it doesn't dry my lips up, which is a good thing too, because if I don't use my chapsticks, my lips always dry up like raisins in the sun. The bad thing is that the longevity is not as good as the Tony Tints that would stay all day long, if you're not eating or drinking, you don't have to worry about the color fades away though.
Overall, I would say that this lip tint is not really bad, it really worth to try it, and I'm glad that I choose the orange one (no. 03) because the color is so natural and makes me look so fresh.
