Lip tints are one of my favorite products which you might well know since I keep going on and on about them. The Etude House Color Pop range has been out for awhile and this is akin to one of the South Korean versions of the YSL Glossy Stains. I have the Color Pop Shine Tint in Sunny Pop, a neon orange shade that looks rather red once on the lips.
As usual, the packaging is extremely detailed and cute for a relatively inexpensive product. The small tube contains 7 grams (.24 ounces) of product and retails for about $7 in Korea. I bought this in Malaysia from an Etude House free standing store for about $10 and you can find this for about $11 (shipping included) on Amazon. There are ten shades to choose from but many look quite similar. There are five warm toned, orangey red shades and five cool toned baby pinks. The product has a fruity scent to it that I find quite pleasant.
I am very happy with the pigmentation and look of Sunny Pop. While I expected a neon orange, I got more of a bright light red shade instead. The formula is very light and comfortable to wear. The cushy sponge tip applicator applies the product easily so you get an even layer of product. Building up the layers will yield a more opaque and shiny look. I don't think the shine of these is as strong as the L'Oreal Caresse Stains but that isn't necessarily a bad thing. After three hours of wear and a Chipotle burrito bowl lunch, the stain had all but faded to a slight red tint on my lips. There was still a hint of color but the shine was clearly gone and the color vanished as well.
What do you think of glossy lip tints? I personally love this new type of lip product because it's more comfortable than a liquid lipstick but has the same shine and pigment. The Etude House Color Pop Shine formula is solid and definitely a good buy if you're looking to add some color to your collection!
