Product Review: Etude House Sugar Tint Balm

Monday, May 25, 2015

     I will never get tired of trying a new lip product as long as the pigmentation is good and there's a lot of colors to choose from the brand! I'm happy to share with you my thoughts on Etude House Sugar Tint Lip Balm. I'm sure you've seen great reviews from beauty bloggers here and abroad and what they have to say about this product. I have a love-hate relationship with these lip balms but I think that it's only me who experienced it. By the way, thank you Etude House for sending these balms. 

     These lip balms are promising but I guess it's only me who can't tolerate a few types of scents and perfumes. To know more about the product scroll down and see photos, swatches, and what are the things I like about these babies :)

What I like:

  • The packaging is cute. It comes with a screw off lid/cap that can prevent the lid/cap from unscrewing off accidentally while these lip balms are inside your makeup kit or bag.
  • There are 8 pretty shades to choose from.
  • The color comes off true. What you see if what you get.
  • It is very pigmented. Looks like I'm wearing lipstick whenever I apply cranberry pie on my lips.
  • It glides smoothly on my lips without tugging and pulling therefore it's easy peasy to apply.
  • It has the right amount of gloss/shine on my lips. 
  • Etude House Sugar Tint Balm lasted 5 hours on my lips.
  • Does not fade after eating or sipping my drink.
  • Contains beauty oils like Jojoba Oil, Organic Argan Oil, and Vitamin E.
  • Easily accessible.

What I don't like: 

  • The price can be a bit steep for budget conscious individuals.
  • The scent- I find the fruity scent a bit off for my sensitive nose. I think it's just me because my sister likes the scent of these lip balms.
  • Can emphasize flaky and chapped lips because the texture is creamy. 

Will I repurchase? Maybe yes and no. Yes because I want to try the remaining six shades. No because I think a bullet will last long. I'm the type who will empty the contents of a product first before trying or buying a new one if it becomes a fave or HG (holy grail). 

Recommendation:
     I give this product a 4/5 rating. I like that the packaging is cute and unique. It's very pigmented but buildable so it's like I'm already wearing a lipstick. If you have dry, flaky, and chapped lips, I advise you to exfoliate first as these lip balms may emphasize them. Other than that, you'll be surprised that you'll get the true color of these lip balms once applied. Some lipstick may look different on the tube and once applied. I have pigmented lips and I don't have a hard time making Grapefruit Tea show off it's true color in just two swipes.

Have you tried these pretty lip balms from Etude House? What's your favorite shade?

Good Times!~

  1. I agree with you. Etude's products are quite pricey but they are usually good products. Thank you for mentioning about the how it emphasizes chapped lips! I have to get read of my chapped lips first before trying these lipsticks so it won't go to waste.

    Nice review!
